Sad story of a determined suicide

Police Find Man's Body, Guillotine In Wooded Area ALLEN PARK, Mich. -- The body of a 41-year-old man was found in a wooded area next to a guillotine he built and used to kill himself, police said. The man, from the Detroit suburb of Melvindale, was discovered Monday by workers from a shopping center near his home. Allen Park Deputy Police Chief Dale Covert said the roughly six-foot tall guillotine was bolted to a tree and included a swing arm. Covert said police also found several store receipts detailing the materials used to assemble the device. "I can't even tell you how long it must have taken him to construct," he said. "This man obviously was very determined to end his life."

Why do you find success sad?

If he (or anyone else) tried very hard to accumulate money and property would you find that success equally sad?

If not why not? Success is not relative.

Does this apply to suicide bombers too?

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
