And we can always thank the 2nd Amendment, nearly half of all suicides were caused by firearms.


other half being mostly pills huh? yeah, those are hard to get.

I'd love to see a graph relating the rise in suicides with the decline of the use of organized religion. ie. Is people leaving the church inversely related to people committing suicide (due to the lost of fear of the negative effects in the afterlife if you commit suicide).

IMO, there are only two reasons not to do it: the effect on others that love you. the effect it has on your afterlife. take one away, I'd bet it causes suicides to rise.

Not that this would be the only reason for the increase, I mean there are huge social issues, a war for almost 20 years, and 1999 was a damned good time in this country (unlike 2008-2009).

That's why I plan to die suddenly and in a massive heart attack. Poutine FTW!
The problem with this plan is when you survive and end up with bad health, extreme debt, or both...

Oh I won't survive. I'm not making 70, so I don't care about debt either
How can you be so sure? What do you have in place to euthanize your ass should you have a massive stroke that turns you into a zombie wearing a diaper, living till the ripe old age of 90 in a low rent nursing home.

Second amendment...... ultimate backup plan... for everything.

Thanks GOP for denying Americans access to assisted suicide and affordable health care. Vote Democrat, it's easier than you think.


Democrat: We need access to assisted suicide!

Also Democrat: too many people are committing suicide with guns!

I'm think they are bringing back the Kings Road PVE map from last year.

That is what I am thinking, but I hope not.

Call it "The Division 2: SubDivision"

So glad I didn't buy this. something about games like this, Starwars: The Old Republic, and The Division. They are so pretty, and fun for 5 mins. Then I go all ADD (which I don't have) and cannot get back into them. I have actually installed and started The Division, and as soon as it loads said "ugh, I don't actually want to play this". Can't explain it.

Still waiting for those nukes Redeye9 ;-)

26,392 (todays close) / 18,259.60 (nov 8th 2016 election night close) = 145%

so it is up 45%, not 32% since election.

not checking the rest

The economic indicators have never been good indicators for quality of life.

The only thing it means, most of the time since the neoliberal policies have been put in place decades ago and applied by every administration ever since, both by republicrats and demopublicans ( and failed since then to do anything it promised to the wage slaves, but fulfilled almost every promise to the plutocrats/oligarchs/rich fucks/hoarders/corporate welfare queens ( that I.M.C. budget among others... ) ), is increased inequality, so more public health problems, more poors, poorer poors and more hoarding by richer rich fucks.

Stop drinking the voodoo economics trickle down urine kool-aid kids, it's bad for you.

Well, that all depends on how big your 401K is. But yeah, the poor are shafted by everybody. Why I try not to be poor.

but who cares about anything remotely bad Obama did.

I cared when he was the President, and was running for re-election. But Trump is President now, so he's the one I will criticize, not Obama, or like you Trump guys like to do, irrelevant Hillary Clinton.

Anyway, the private sector won't be ready to take over the ISS, or launch their own commercial station by 2024. The extra 4 years could be very helpful in ensuring we don't have a gap there.

Again, because I disagree with you, you assume things about me. Did you not want to include "Nazi" and "Racist" in your hate speech?

I wonder if all these people that are hating on Trump for the ISS knows it was supposed 15 years after launch in 1998, then extended to end in 2020, and was extended again to 2024 in 2015. And only the ex NASA chief (left last month) expected it to last to 2028 no matter what (the original maximum lifespan was 30 years (till 2028), but halved for safety).

But Trump said something, so keep hating. Or, go do some research before you believe clickbait.
Or you could use the rest of the facts.
NASA pledged to keep the International Space Station program funded through 2024, thanks to an extension made by the Obama administration in 2014. But after that, the stationís fate has been up in the air.
The dotard could do the same, the only reason he doe not want to fund it because it was something President Obama had previously funded.
Keep watching Fox Noise buckaroo, it's good at drowning out reality.

because I disagree I automatically love Fox News? WTF lol You all need help with your prejudices.

the rest of the facts? you gave no new facts. lol

Oh absolutely we could keep the ISS flying. Just need a major overhaul. maybe a few new nodes and modules or what ever else is required to keep spacecraft safe long past their operational window...

or, now hear me out, not.

now, if you want to get into funding, Obama cut NASA funding from .6% of the federal budget to .5%... but who cares about anything remotely bad Obama did.
