Suicide Prevention.

Suicide rates in the United States have tripled in the past 5 years.

Based on national numbers:

Middle aged white men have the highest rate of suicide.

Men are three times more likely to commit suicide.

Suicide is the leading cause of death of 10-17 year olds.

The state of Montana has the highest rate of suicide in the country.

New York has the lowest rate.

Over 50% of suicides are committed using a firearm.

I was watching a Wall Street Journal news story about a cluster of suicides occurring in a Utah high school. (7 students committed suicide in 2018). This shocked me.

Just looking at the state averages, I see a lot of red states with high suicide rates. I’m not trying to make it a political issue… but it seems linked.

The darker states have the highest suicide rates. (Texas is out of the norm a little) but you can see what I’m saying.

Alaska was a red state I believe, don’t quote me on that, but I just think of Sarah fucking Palin.

My Apartment

Is overrun with all these fucking signs.

I replaced a lot of the signs with ones that said the same thing, but with a smiley face so it’s not as harsh.

But I’m really tired of the fucking signs.. so I did this when I saw a new sign pop up…

I’m an asshole. But it is very easy to just ask someone to do something…. especially if your English is that horrible, it’s probably better to explain it in person than a stupid sign like that.

Anyway, 24 hours later and the sign miraculously disappeared. Lol
