Just another thing men are better at than women.

So women like attention and talking about things and men get the job done?

We had a family friend who took her life. First she tried ODing, then a year later she shot herself. I'm not sure I'd say it's necessarily about attention, but what we were told after she was gone was that women are more likely to start off with methods where it's easier to save them, while men are more likely to start off with something that's immediately final.

Eh I think that someone generally kills themselves because they couldn't get the job done in some aspect of their life.

It has to do more with methods. Men are more likely to own and be familiar with guns. As a result, it is their preferred method of suicide. Women are less likely to own a gun. They are also more likely to consider the trauma associated with a loved one finding them in a pool of blood, and more likely to be concerned with how they look at their funeral. So, they pick other, less effective means. The preferred method of suicide for women is overdose, which is not as effective as blowing a hole through your temple.

Actually, you should put the gun further back than your temple. If you shoot at your temple you'll end up just blowing out your optical nerve.

I had a suicide prevention course in the air Force once and the brought up his stat and asked why we think that is. I said because men do it right the first time. Got a good laugh and the instructor said yeah pretty much. Then the commander wanted to have a talk with me about saying g inappropriate things. Good times.

Dammit. Now we'll have to lower the threshold of actual death to appease feminists

Men get shit done. Even suicide.

That's what I've never understood, it's not hard to kill yourself, find a high place and let gravity do the work for you. And it's free.

It's not immediate enough though. Those who have survived the fall said that they immediately regretted the decision and were glad they survived.

They say that in between the ledge people jump off of and the ground, jumpers tend to realize that everything leading up to that moment was either temporary or fixable, everything except their now inevitable appointment with the ground.

The problem with these stats is that it's difficult to tell just how many times a man tries to commit suicide. If a woman tries to OD, she goes to the hospital and it's recorded. If a man puts a gun in his mouth and decides not to pull the trigger, who's ever going to find out about it?

Probably because men tend to fuck around less when they want something done.
