Money comes and goes, that's the last reason to end one's life.

How Ripple Rips you: "The founders of Ripple Labs created 100 billion XRP at Ripple's inception. No more can be created according to the rules of the Ripple protocol. Of the 100 billion created, 20 billion XRP were retained by the creators, seeders, venture capital companies and other founders. The remaining 80 billion were given to Ripple Labs. Ripple Labs intends to distribute and sell 55 of that 80 billion XRP to users and strategic partners. Ripple Labs also had a giveaway of under 200 million XRP (0.002% of all XRP) via World Community Grid that was later discontinued.[29] Ripple Labs will retain the remaining 25 billion"

@OP:
See this as an opportunity! Sell all your useless junk you have accumulated in life (you wouldn't have any use for them as a dead man anyway!), say goodbye to your friends and family and get a one-way ticket to anywhere you want. It doesn't really matter now since you might be just as well dead. So enjoy your time!

If I was suicidal, I was disappear in Mexico, do blow and hookers then decide. Suicide can wait and it's always an option.

^Something like that lol! Cheesy

hyphymikey - I lost over 7500 coins recently, don't sweat it... things may look bad now but EVERYTHING happens for a reason! Remember, YOU have the ability to turn this around from a negative into a positive, good luck and i hope everything works out.

Not sure if this is serious or not.... but if it's serious, DON'T DO IT.  Money comes and goes but life goes on. Whatever seems hard now typically passes as time goes on. Certainly being broke from theft is something that can and will get fixed as the days/weeks/months/years go on.

He threw away his hard drive containing the private keys to BTC7500. It was widely published in the mass media:

I believe this might be the famous Mr. Landfill.

Don't do it! You'll make back more than you lost, it just will take some drive.

Also, don't come to bitcointalk when you're feeling down... probably the worst place to be.

Instead of blow, maybe LSD?

Don't get caught up in the game and have a nice day!

This is actually the best advice so far... Just go have fun and see what happens. One day at a time. Etc.

+1. There's actually a strong correlation to your brain chemistry, and nothing changes that faster than alittle blow. Maybe blow some steam off, then reassess your life. Try focusing on anything or any one you enjoy or like, or perhaps love?

definitely, like someone else said, a perm solution for a temp problem. Not a good idea...

You obviously don't know what you're talking about. That's like handing a child a can of gasoline and a lit flare. The last thing you want to be when under the influence of LSD is to be struggling with any sort of emotional or psychological imbalance... holy crap why on earth would you suggest that?

What he said, people with mental health problems need doctors, not recreational drugs.

OP don't take this directly but Americans/westerners (which I take it you are) are friggin spoiled, myself included. It's all about perspective. When I'm feeling down it's terrible to admit it but something that makes me feel better (human nature), or it's better to say not so bad, is remembering those so much worse off. For Americans there are a lot. There was that man in Greece who suffering from their financial pressure set himself on fire.

In North Korea, where there is no Internet, 80 people were recently executed for infractions like watching porn and western movies. I remember stories before the financial crises of rampant food inflation causing exacerbated starvation globally, with people in some places making mud cakes - trying to get some nutrition from literally eating dirt.

In that context it's hard to feel sympathetic when you say you can't afford to live. Al Jazerra covered Sean's Outpost finding 3 homeless guys that, using bitcoin, began doing online tasks and soon moved into a house. There is so much opportunity with Bitcoin it's unbelievable. The fact that you're an English speaking, I assume male, puts you ahead of so many out the gate. Being Internet savvy and especially involved with Bitcoin puts you in a further minority percent. So you fell down a bit, big deal. Do you know how many would literally die (and sometimes do) to be in your shoes? It's all about perspective.

Dont do anything that you would regret and think about the people around you.

Pretty much this. I am sorry for your loss, but if this is a serious thread, don't do anything stupid.

Seriously, as quoted, think of your friends and family !
There are always ways around complicated situations.


Sorry, but
I think the 1st suicide will be a dogecoiner.

such delusion, very overdose, wow, much self-destruction.

This is hilarious !!!
+1 on that.

I think a lot of us would be interested in your background, where you from, what you studied ...

BTW, if you know bitcoins, you are probably teksavvy and logical... those are character traits that can easily get you a job.

Also, you have not replied to your thread in a while, REPLY !!!

man just call 911 and get the police to take you to a psych ward for suicide watch then claim disability and get SSI because you hear voices in your head telling you to kill yourself.

Unfortunately the emergency services tend to be quite useless with people merely feeling suicidal - they MIGHT respond well to an actual attempt, but for mere suicidal ideation (the medical term for "thinking about suicide and thinking it's a good idea") you're better off going straight to a psych.

Not to mention most people who are suicidal do not have "voices in their head" but rather a severe lack of serotonin triggered through a random biochemical glitch or from a life event - or for the truly unlucky both (for example, someone with bipolar who has a bad life event).

The nasty part about depression is it hijacks self-esteem and makes the victim believe that nobody will care (it's a common pattern to see people claim they're doing their friends and family a favour by removing themselves from the situation), when in reality most people have SOMEONE who does care and would be hurt - which is why the best approach is always to encourage people who talk about suicide to talk to their friends and family in person.

Of course some threats are just attention seeking or even plain old trolling, but from personal experience it's best to assume the threat is real and encourage people to seek help - i'd rather be fooled by a few trolls than see someone die who could have been saved, especially as i've had friends who took their own life after people thought they were joking.

For free ass kicking/tasing/bullet in the head call 911...
