    Possibly, but I think Trump just tweeted he's sending US troops there once he pulls them out of Syria - that guy knows how to negotiate a deal!

    Considering the suddenness of his death and his histronics and the fact that his business might have closed up shop two years ago...seems pretty obvious. :(

    He killed himself after I put him on ignore again. :(

    That said, I noticed he has been talking to me for years without a response.

    Definitely looks like suicide, which I kind of figured.

    Clearly, his death is on your hands. If only you had been more willing to listen to someone with differing views than you, El Chup might still be alive.

    It's possible it was suicide.
    It's Poodle's method of saying as such that warrants the 'Please fuck off.'

    His business? I thought he was a lawyer working as a public servant in immigration or something along those lines. :unsure:

    one other option (not likely) is faking his own death in an insurance scheme - I don't know who his collaborators would be though. When I was stationed in Alaska we had a guy try to fake his death by making it look like he got attacked & eaten by bears. :unuts: This shit stain parked his truck on a road where there was some traffic but not a lot. His young son (about five or so) was with him. He left the kid in the truck and walked the fuck off into the woods and broke a lot of branches and and cut himself to make a blood trail (there was some snow still on the ground when he did it) to make it seems that he got randomly attacked by a bear while going off to take a shit or whatever. Of course a car came along and found his kid alone, and the kid was old enough to tell everyone that his dad walked off into the woods. He had somebody (the would-be benefactor of his life insurance policy) meet him a mile or so away and help him hideout and whatnot in the scam, but the the plan eventually fell through and he was sent to prison.

    I get that. I thought his job was a lawyer working for the state, like a public defender type of lawyer, not a freelance lawyer.

    Private contractor who is occasionally paid by legal aid charities or the government.

    I never assumed he was a panel attorney or public defender. He spoke of screening clients which a public attorney doesn’t have the luxury of doing. I don’t know if he was associated with a firm or was freelance when he died. I kind of assumed freelance.

    wow, so he may have done the suicide thing. He was a bit high strung. I hope he feels better about whatever is next. I don't know what sort of pain or depression he was in. I know happiness is relative so it does not matter how successful or not he was. He did not seem like he could find much joy in the little things. I hope I am wrong. I hope he went out having experienced a decent amount of happiness and appreciation for what he had.

    He seemed like he was pretty caught up in what you are supposed to do and other peoples peoples' judgment. I tried to show him it did not matter. What mattered was being. Damn, if he did kill himself he put pride way out in front of everything else. How many people could he have gone to around here who are decent and would not have held it over his head? There is a bunch. Who cares if you are not the biggest winner in the universe? We are all in different places, and we can all talk.

    At the end of the day we are all just people roaming around looking for onnections and a little bit of happiness and love. Don't stay on your high horse so long you get loopy and die.

    "He was a bit high strung" - ya think? Seriously though a lot of people I interact with on a daily basis (my family for sure) think I'm high strung because I fly off the handle really fast over little things, but I try not to dwell on these things to the point where it ruins the rest of my day. I have made much progress over the years - it just takes a lot of very hard work to "control your brain" so to speak. Hopefully he didn't off himself - such a waste. :( I totally get depression & frustration & other negative mental/emotional states but to get that that fatal point is one human trait that I hope gets bred out of us eventually. It's the downside of having an incredibly complicated brain.

    Actually thinking about this more, he was having a gout attack.

    I remember my first few gout attacks I wondered if killing myself would provide relief.

    Considering the poor quality of NHS care this time of year, when most budgets have been burned through, perhaps that did it.

    We’ll all remember this post when you die of complications from gout and heart disease at the tender old age of 39.

    I think self-loathing is at least partly to blame because so many of them are morbidly obese.

    Seriously. Look around at how many of them aren't just overweight but are grossly so.

    They project their disgust with themselves onto others.

    The link between fundamentalist/creationist Christians and obesity would be an interesting study - then again I live in the south so a lot of people are morbidly obese or well on their way to it.
    What I find ironic is sloth (laziness) and gluttony are both sins! :nono: Combine the two (as is often the case) and you have an obesity tsunami of biblical proportions!

    Uh, nothing is next, and he'll feel nothing because all experience for him is permanently and irrevocably ended.

    If he did kill himself (and it's not certain that he did), he would've been deluded to think dying would somehow yield an improvement (and I think he would've agreed with that statement).
