    I was just poking around Wikipedia, trying to trigger myself, when I came upon this:

    It's a Washington Post story from 1974, about Christine Chubbuck, who was the very first person ever to commit suicide on live TV.

    Damn. Now I've got to come up with something that hasn't been done before.

    Yup, it was a pretty good trigger for me too. I suppose other people go looking for stuff like that when they need to feel sad?

  4. Oh yes, I am familiar with the late Miss Chubbuck and her public suicide. As far as "triggers" go, there are much more disturbing examples of suicide on the 'net...very, very graphic examples. :puke:

    Despite the frequent grotesque and repulsive images of death, people, even so-called "normal" people, have a morbid fascination with viewing it. IMHO humans have a natural curiosity about death and what it looks like. Why ?

    To see death is to see one's future. :eek:
