That you can try on somebody else. They are all same dumb in my book. It´s very strange that so many comes out and state that it was very dumb choices in their lifes, after they got free from thier addiction. Whatever that one might have been.

So you have never found yourself addicted to anything? You have never had an unhealthy relationship with any kind of vice ever in your life? It's too easy and dismissive to simply state - it's all simply 'being dumb', it's a lot more nuanced than that. The reasons behind the behaviour are what count even more than the behaviour itself in many cases.

 

I notice you don't even try to rebutt my above arguments re: tech, either. 😉

Every too often we hear about people losing their lives over a stupid acts of taking a selfies, as if life is not perilous enough as it is, now humanity has to deal with death as a results of new tech

..Not sure we should blame technology in this case. RIP

Might want to make them a bit bigger and more numerous. Not one, but two tragic deaths in the same spot, for the same reason.

No one has seen the signs, what language are they in?

Of course, I am an idiot. That´s the easiest way to fit in and be as incognito as possible in todays wierd society. 😉

 

If you try to prove yourself otherwise, then you stand out in the crowd.

Agreed!

'you stand out in the crowd.' - but for the right reasons surely?

 

I'd rather not be the same as everyone else in any meaningful sense anyway. <deleted> that.

no one suspected it might have been a deliberate selfie of the suicide ?

Perhaps even more surprising that nobody here suspects he was murdered on Koh Tao, and then brought to Samui and thrown from the waterfall to make it look like an accident....

I think you'll find those that affected the greatest changes in our society for both good and bad throughout the ages, have been exactly the kind of people who did 'stand out in the crowd' and who didn't feel satisfied to simply 'fit in' and remain incognito. That's the point.

Does a person deserve to forfeit his life because of one stupid act? According to you, yes, right? Wonder what your death will look like? Darwin at work? Is that what your loved ones will say? OneLessA$$holeFarang is what others might. Think about it.

Such a stupid comment.

Why? I know RIP and all that.

But obviously he was not fit enough to understand that if you take a risk you better be careful. Otherwise you are not part of the survival of the fittest group. And all because of a stupid selfie.
