    Caltrain searches for answers to suicide rate

    Gordon Smith, Bay City News

    Thursday, January 9, 2003

    (01-09) 17:26 PST -- The deaths of two men who were struck down Wednesday by commuter trains on the Caltrain rail corridor point to a grim mystery for which officials do not have an answer. Despite one of the most active outreach efforts of any railway in the nation, the despondent continue to choose suicide by Caltrain as a preferred method to end their lives. "We have the largest suicide by train rate in the country," Caltrain spokeswoman Maltbie said today, but could not offer an explanation for the morbid distinction.

    Of Wednesday's deaths, the Redwood City collision that took the life of Gary Sloan, 41, of San Carlos, is already being ruled a suicide by the San Mateo County Coroner's Office. Witnesses said Sloan stood on the tracks in a karate stance as the oncoming train rumbled toward him.

    He was so scared of your effective martial arts defamation campaign that he took his own life. How does that make you feel?

    Normally, I'd say I was grappling, but I was taking down and mounting people, and JFS has kindly informed us that takedowns and being mounted are neither grappling nor anti grappling, so I'm not sure what the **** I was doing. Maybe schroedinger's sparring, where it's neither grappling nor anti-grappling until somoene observes it and collapses the waveform, and then I RNC a cat to death.----fatherdog

    Truthfully? I believe God made him do it. In either case, the worlds better off with one less wacko stylist polluting it. :)

    You don't know that he was a stylist, or even a bad person (yes, the two are quite separate, and no, correlation does not equal causation).

    You could argue that he was a bad person for choosing to commit suicide, but we must remember that the Stoics respected suicide as a final means of gaining control in one's life.

    Who am I supposed to believe more: Marcus Aurelius, of Stoicism, or Kungfoolss, master of invincible ignorance?

    Why are you always talking about your dick and cumming on other men's faces?

    Is this like a secret fantasy of yours?

    I think the administrators need to do a criminal background check on you.
    I'll make one when I can find one I like.

    "Secret" fantasy? What's secret about it?
