    Most forms of media shying away from suicide coverage. Fearing that it will only encourage copycat attempts. I would like to thanks NBC’s “The Office” for making suicide the theme of last weeks episode.

    It was absolutely hilarious. I can identify with the main character, who wants to be the center of attention and whose top priority is to make a good impression on everyone. Its also incredibly ironic that his name is Michael (like mine ) and was going to commit suicide by jumping off the rooftop. I jumped off the roof of the 16 stories tall power plant which I work at back in November…found the coincidence way to Neat!

    Its sounds more impressive than it actually was. The power plant was 20 stories high, but I landed on top of the mechanics shop which is 4 stories tall. For a 16 story fall the impact speed is about 50mph. So its equivalent to being in a car accident, without the seat belts/ air bags/ and deceleration due to the car crumpling. The mechanic shop roof was too soft, it provided 2feet (dent) of deceleration.

    I broke ribs, an appendage in my neck, shattered hip, sever bruising of internal organs. I will make a full recovery. Minus the metal pin in my hip, a seven inch surgical scar, and my left leg is now a inch shorter than my right leg (from missing bone). That said it could have been much worse…I could have had a nine inch surgical scar!

    That's the one thing I fear..suviving the attempt.
