    The Japanese manage to suicide per capita in far greater numbers than we Americans. South Koreans have an even higher per capita suicide rate.

    They do this without access to handguns.

    No. Since when is reducing suicide the goal of the gun control lobby?

    Their thinking straight forward - less guns in the hands of mundanes makes for more government power.

    Got data to back that claim? Seriously - you are rendering a judgment on a method of taking your own life. What do you base this upon?


    US women prefer to use pills to suicide.

    A 2012 study showed that 31 percent of women use a handgun. 36 percent used poison.

    Men as a group in this same study chose a firearm 56 percent of the time.

    Hanging was the predominant method of suicide in most countries included in the analysis (Table 1). The highest proportions were around 90% in men and 80% in women, as observed in eastern Europe (i.e. Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland and Romania). There were a number of deviations from the predominant pattern. As might be expected, firearm suicide was the most common method in the United States, but was also prevalent in Argentina, Switzerland and Uruguay, although only men used this method in Switzerland. Jumping from a height (designated as falls in the figures) plays an important role in small, predominantly urban societies such as Hong Kong SAR, Luxembourg and Malta. In contrast, in rural Latin American countries (e.g. El Salvador, Nicaragua and Peru), Asian countries (e.g. the Republic of Korea and Thailand) and also in Portugal, poisoning with pesticides was a major problem, notably among women. Poisoning with drugs was common in women from Canada, the Nordic countries and the United Kingdom. It also played an important role in male suicide in these countries.

    The well-known differences between menís and womenís preferred suicide methods can also be seen in Table 1. Violent and highly lethal methods such as firearm suicide and hanging are more frequent among men, whereas women often choose poisoning or drowning, which are less violent and less lethal.

    I had a nasty case of depasquale once but a combination antibiotic / anitfungal took care of it.

    I dream of an America where a chicken can cross the road without having its motives questioned.

    That's what happens when you stick your dick in crazy liberal chicks.
    Rules are written in the stone,
    Break the rules and you get no bones,
    all you get is ridicule, laughter,
    and a trip to the house of pain.
