News #1:

BUENOS AIRES, Argentina – An ex-Argentine police commander committed suicide in front of rolling television cameras as he was about to be arrested for alleged human rights violations during the country’s dictatorship.

“Maria, goodbye,” Mario Ferreyra said to his wife before lifting the .45-caliber revolver and shooting himself in the temple.

Ferreyra, 63, took his life on Friday as national authorities arrived at his home to arrest him on charges in connection with the disappearance, torture and death of dissidents during Argentina’s 1976-83 dictatorship.

He had just finished an interview with cable TV station Cronica, whose cameras were still rolling when he took out the gun and fired it.

The TV station later broadcast the images. – AP/GMANews.TV

News #2:

MIAMI – The father of a college student whose suicide was broadcast live over a webcam said Saturday he was appalled by the virtual audience that egged on his son and called for tougher regulation of Internet sites.

(…)

Police found Abraham Biggs Jr. dead in his father’s bed Wednesday, 12 hours after he first declared on the Web site for bodybuilders that he planned to take his own life. He took a fatal drug overdose in front of an Internet audience. Although some viewers contacted the Web site to notify police, authorities did not reach his house in time.

(…)

A computer user who claimed to have watched said that after swallowing some pills, Biggs went to sleep and appeared to be breathing for a few hours while others cracked jokes. Some users told investigators they did not take him seriously because he had threatened suicide on the site before.

Biggs Sr. said he believes the webcast was a cry for help.AP/GMANews.TV

Kung totoo ‘yung nasa pelikula ni Adam Sandler na Click, ‘yung universal remote control… malamang wala nang magpapakamatay sa mundo.

Bored ka? — puwede mong i-fast forward ang oras.

May problema ka sa trabaho? Sa babae/lalaki? — skip chapters muna hanggang bumalik ka sa happy memories.

Pinapagalitan ka? — pindutin mo lang ‘yung mute. Para hindi mo na marinig ‘yung bembang.

Para hindi na masyadong masakit.

But here’s the thing… walang universal remote control ang buhay.

Walang shortcut para masolusyonan ang mga problema natin.

Walang anaesthesia para sa masasakit na salita… o sa masaklap na katotohanan.

Sucks.

But we all have to live with it.. or die trying.

So how does tactless Lenggai talk to a suicidal friend?

Friend: Yada, yada, yada… about thoughtless boyfriend.

Ako: Loser.

Then friend goes on plurking about committing suicide because she is a loser.

Sinubukan kong hindi pansinin… o ipamukha sa kanya ang triviality ng kanyang mga pinagsasasabi… but she kept on going on… and on… and…

Click delete plurk.

OK, kasalanan ba kung for the longest time, I believed I’ve had one of the healthiest, feel-good set of friends?

Hindi naman sa wala akong pakialam sa kaibigan ko… pero it’s a Sunday… it’s not like ipinagpalit ka sa iba nung tao… o hindi ka na niya mahal… and ang sakit ng ulo ko… and dapat pahinga ako… and…

Sa totoo lang, wala talaga akong pasensya sa mga suicidal na tao.

O sa mga nag-iisip na suicide ang solusyon sa lahat.

Parang ang daya kasi. Magpapakamatay ka para hindi ka na masaktan? O mapahiya?

Matatapos ang lahat ng ganun-ganun na lang.

Hindi naman sa sinasabi kong hindi rin pumapasok sa isip ko ang ganyan… may moments din… ah hindi, moment lang… at ‘yung nag-iisang instance na talagang sineryoso ko eh dahil sa lalaki.

‘Pag naaalala ko ‘yun, parang gusto kong maglaslas.

OK… that’s just me and my sick sense of humor.

Ang sakit talaga ng ulo ko.

Tara, inuman na lang tayo.

tama idaan na lang sa inom..

Nakakduda din kasi minsan yung mga nagsasabing magpapakamatay sila madalas kelangan lang ng atensyon at hindi naman talaga natutuloy.

i agree with your thoughts on suicide. it’s so emo. like you, i’d also use the word “loser” on someone who has entertained suicide as an escape to their problems.

pero that didn’t mean na di ko yan pinagdaanan, lalo na nung high school, ang kasagsagan ng pagka-emo ng lahat ng tao (though wala pang term na “emo” noon).

besides, papatalo ka ba kasi nakipag-break sa yo ang ex mo? never did that thought cross my mind during that failed relationship (talagang singular, wehehe!). masyado akong maganda para mamatay ng maaga.😀

Hmmm true. Let’s hope you’re friend’s not serious about her plurks/threats. I hope she sees this entry too as your way of saying that the guy’s not worth her time, and not just you complaining about her whining😀

Whiny friends are annoying (I’m one, most of the time, and I get this from my friends, although they’re not blogged. They tell me personally.) but maybe your friend’s whiny period will pass. If you’re really close buds you’ll buy yourself a pair of earplugs and hug her.🙂

Nice blog though. Entertaining.

Oh, and I agree with your thoughts on suicide. Kung shortstory s’ya, it’s a “cop out”.😉

7. Emo thoughts so early in the morning… « Hits and Mrs. - Nobyembre 28, 2008

[…] morning’s episode reminded me of a blog post made by my friend, A (yes, that is her nickname), about suicides and losers. (The said blog post was actually made after a similar situation, wherein she talked to a girl who […]
