30 day waiting period would probably do it. Especially if the process involves evaluation and counselling. A lot of young people are in pain and don't want to live but can be treated in order to see the other side.

Yeah. Some mental conditions are easier treated than others. Some might not even know there's a treatment. We'd definitely want a real evaluation in addition to whatever waiting period is appropriate. If someone isn't in really agonizing pain, they'll be more than willing to wait 1-3 months to get off the ride.

Personally, I'd probably take the option if it was available. I don't have a terminal health condition, but my overall health is poor thanks to shitty hereditary issues on both sides of my family. My QOL in 10 years or so is going to be pretty bad. I go months without drinking, and other than the occasional bowl, I don't smoke, so I got that going for me. Only a few family members left. No wife, no kids. Not really anyone who would be hurt by my passing.

I see so many older folks who are basically completely alone and living a really miserable life. I wouldn't want to end up like that. I hope by the time I am older that we've got a more humane view on suicide here.

TB has been one of the most reliable guys to go to when it came to finding out if I was gonna like a game.

Gonna miss his content. I hope he enjoys his last days as much as possible and that his wife and son handle it as well as can be expected.

I think that all people, terminally ill or not, should have access to a humane and comfortable death if they've decided they are done. A mandatory waiting period of 30 days or so should hopefully keep impulsive suicides down and ensure only people who really want out are using it.

There is no reason we should be telling someone they have to keep living when they don't want to, or force them to kill themselves in an unreliable (and potentially messy) way that could put a burden on other people or leave them in an even worse state.

Some people are in immense amounts of pain. Others suffer from untreatable mental illness. Others just don't have a lot to live for and even just existing from day to day becomes tiresome. I have nothing but sympathy for these people and I'd never ask them to keep going because of some hollow platitudes about things getting better.

Working with Trump is not a good use of anyone's time. He's going to do whatever he thinks is best, regardless of what an expert tells him. He thinks he knows more than the experts, yet doesn't know the basics, such as how our government works. The system of checks and balances is "very unfair" he says.

Hell, just listening to him talk is a waste of time. You are either going to get a complete lie or gibberish.

This is the thing that confuses the fuck out of me more than anything. How does anyone come away from Trump talking about anything and think "Wow that guy really knows his shit!"

I'd really like a Trump supporter to explain that one.

If they don't care about being eaten, why do they run/swim/fly away? Not attacking your choices, just curious (honestly, good on you for eating in a healthier more env friendly way).

Danger or damage mitigation responses aren't necessarily indicative of the level of intelligence of the creature. Many plants have defense responses too, that are advantageous against herbivores.

This is kind of what I'd expect if Duke Nukem ever discussed science, so the username adds up.

Too much rambling not enough awesome one-liners.

The good thing about anti-vax is that anti-vaxxers will naturally break their necks on the side of the gene pool. The bad thing about anti-vax is that they might take some of us with them.

So faith is exactly what your using. Trusting the people who know more than you do, with your life, hoping they get it right.

So I take it you don't trust anyone and don't allow doctors to treat you? Because the reality of life is that there is too much to know. At some point you have to rely on other people who know things you don't. You can, however, with very basic knowledge, know if someone is blowing smoke up your ass.

I don't need a microbiology degree to know that something diluted 30 times is unlikely to have a single molecule of active ingredient. I don't need a physics degree to know that healing crystals don't do shit.

The whole reason conspiracy theorists and wackjobs like yourself exist is because you just assume everyone else is trying to trick you and that the very concept of a fact doesn't exist. We'd still have polio and smallpox all over the place if it was up to people like you.

So if I calculate that correctly, that's 0.013% of his total wealth.

0.013% of my total wealth would boil down to roughly $19.50. Somehow I'm really not that impressed, Bill. I give more than twenty bucks to charity each WEEK.

Don't get me wrong, he's done great philanthropic work in the past, but this is just... Wow. Thanks Bill. You know you can't take it with you, right?

Gates gives like 95% of the money he makes to charity and humanitarian causes and has pledged to give away like 90% of his total wealth or something absurd like that when he dies.

You have a lot more faith in vaccines than I ever will.

I don't think vaccines require faith? It's not like no one knows how they work or that they are some great mystery. All you need is a very basic understanding of the underlying science and some lay-person digestible summaries of the peer reviewed studies.

Incorrect. 11,208 homicides. Classifying suicides as violence is a way to bump up the number so "gun violence" sounds scary, the same with accidental deaths. If I fall off a ladder and die is that "ladder violence?" If I overdose on sleeping pills to kill myself is that "drug violence?"

And it's not so we can play pew pew. It's so we can defend ourselves and our loved ones.

Why do people with guns in their homes commit suicide more often than people without? Why are people with guns in their homes more likely to die of gun violence? Doesn't sound like they do a very good job of protecting people on average.

Gun violence in the US each year kills 35,000, wounds 75,000, and costs $229 BILLION. Just so you can go play pew-pew at the range. Fuck you.

Sorry classic misuse of statistics for political purposes.

As opposed to classic disregard of statistics for political purposes?

Adding a firearm to just about any setting or situation increases the likelihood of someone being injured or killed. It stands to reason that the increased likelihood means increased costs, both in money, and human lives.

Y'all need to stop responding to obvious trolls and wingnuts. People like Timmeh and JoeCool are the type of people who have Fox News directly piped into their veins. They are beyond reason, and beyond help.

Let them stew in their trailer park, furious that the world is leaving them behind.

I think this is a good lesson that the concept of a role-model is perhaps a flawed way to teach children by example. It sets kids up for huge disappointment.

Maybe an emphasis on specific actions and character traits, and discouraging the placement of any individual on a pedestal.

I'm more interested to hear how Bluehole Studio Inc. convinced the Chinese government to investigate and arrest its citizens.

China makes a lot of money off Western game devs licensing the right to run game servers over there. If a western company wants to run a game there, a Chinese company has to run the day to day operations, and they make most of the money.

They need to appear friendly to these developers so they can get more business.

At least thats my understanding of the situation.

Did you see a picture of yourself on it? If not, then it was a different board.

If they had nekkid pictures of me, it's better for humanity that they got shut down! No one should be forced to see that!

I remember reading a bit about this when Columbus Nova first bought them, how they were basically now owned by Putin's pals, some Russian oligarchs.

If they weren't doing something shady, they wouldn't have to try and retroactively delete all mention of Columbus Nova.
