There"s no blood or gore and the guy lived, but the funny thing is, he wanted to end his life. Now he"s paralyzed.

oh and kikji page 2

"It is - on the other hand - selfish to want someone to stay alive when their life is unbearable just so you don`t have to grieve"

in a case where your friend is depressed... dont let them kill themselves.... as "normal" depression is often caused by a chemical that is released when somebody is very sad and this creates an unbalance they can be helped with counciling and anti-depressants
manic-depression is an illness that cant be cured and can be helped with anti-depressants

letting yur friend die is selfish for the parents and all his friends

a reply to opies comment on the first page
"I always find it odd that the more developed a country is (warning: generalization) the higher the suicide rate. Same with mental illnesses."

this is because is ledc (less ecenomically developed countries) mortality (without suicide) is lower so they are more likely to die from an illness or life situations eg starvation etc.... and mental illnesses are mainly found in elderly people so they arent living old enough to get them does that answer your question?

DiePSPolice, it`s no use trying to explain something like this to MidniteRun. He`ll probably understand when he`s confined to a wheelchair himself, watching on YouTube the video that recorded the tragic accident he was involved in and reading the sarcastic comments below (well, trying to decipher them, as far as his damaged brain will let him).

if he really wanted to end his life and didnt have the money to buy a gun or rope or anything, why didnt he dive head first?

"Comedy: A man cutting his finger, falling into an open sewer and dying"

That`s the first ever comment that has made me laugh. Even if it is a joke taken from somewhere else.

And technically he only fell 5 stories...then another. Kinda sucks for him that it looked like he was trying to avoid the mat as he jumped. Ouch.

Oh and DiePSpolice, stop being a fuddy duddy old man and realise that you don`t have to look at everything in life as super serious. Even though you are making your comment because you don`t like teenagers, that`s pretty obvious.

Although he does have a point, MidniteRun. Sure, have a chuckle at the video but if you`re laughing because he`s now disabled...that`s just twisted.

How is an old suicidal maniac jumping off a building, failing, thus becoming paralyzed, tragic to me in any way shape or form? It`s not, therefore, I LAUGH!

Uh, its tragic when you are buying condoms to have sex for the first time and a drunken driver runs you over and you end being paraplegic and your girlfriend dumps you. NOT when you fall from a building you just climbed with the specific purpose of jumping.

@MidniteRun:

I have a sense of humor. Your`s is clearly broken, and you clearly don`t have empathy. Have you ever felt bad, or depressed about anything? Maybe, but because you`re a 13-17 year old boy it probably comes out as hormonally fueled rage. But have you ever felt so much emotional pain that you wanted to kill yourself? No? Me neither. I`ve felt really, really bad, but not anywhere near that bad. Imagine how much you must be hurting to want it just to end. I wouldn`t wish that on my worst enemy.

Also: paralyzation/permanent disability: not funny. Again, you`re a 13-17 year-old boy; I was once, too, so I can`t completely blame you for being a moron with no perspective, but:

Some time in your life you will be injured in a way that affects your everyday life (maybe a broken leg, broken arm, that heals in a few months), and then maybe you will have some perspective and realize that stuff like this is tragic, not comic.

People who commit suicide are about as selfish as it gets. I hope he didn`t have any family. I know how it feels.

He did not have mental issues (the suicidal type) he would just have gone up, said a few last words to cheesus and jumped. He did that? No, he waited for the rescue team. He wanted attention, so I`m guessing he slipped. Which makes it a bit fun.

Are you completely incapable of a sense of humor? Oh no, an old man who doesn`t want to live is still alive. Boo hoo, we should all feel so sorry for him. Give me a break. It`s funny!

committing suicide isn`t selfish - it is usually the act of a disturbed and desperate mind (not a selfish one). It is - on the other hand - selfish to want someone to stay alive when their life is unbearable just so you don`t have to grieve.

I also don`t find this funny.

He wanted to end his life because he is a horrible planner. The jump was his example of how horrible his planning is.

There are different reasons for it. Look at Japan, they have a death clears all debt rule. So, in bad times more people off themselves so they`re not a burdon.

That`s why you just get a .44 and stick it up your nose.

I always find it odd that the more developed a country is (warning: generalization) the higher the suicide rate. Same with mental illnesses.

When you`re suicidal, you dont often think rationally about what would be the best way to top yourself etc.

I feel sorry for the guy, he`d obviously got to the very end of his tether and felt he had nothing else he could do.

I know sometimes these are just funny vids or whatever guys, but you have to remember that these are real people and real situations in theses vids.

That is why you should just be able to go in to the pharmacy and buy a pill to end it all. I suggest marketing it simply as, "death". No mess, no spending thousands of tax payer dollars per suicide. "The average economic cost of services used per suicide is $10,200. The average economic cost of services used per attempted suicide is $3,750." - Reference

Nah, just kidding.

But seriosly, if you`re going to kill your self. Do it quick and painless. Not jump from 50ft which wont kill you.

A quick shot to the head from your old WW2 gun you`ve been saving for a special time.

Or better yet, get someone else to shoot you so its a win win. You get to die and the criminal gets thrown in jail if caught!
