Reddit co-founder’s suicide prompts whitehouse.gov petition

An entire day of Army Suicide Prevention training at recruiting school

It’s no secret that the military is facing a staggering suicide rate, more than one every day now. The trend was spotted years ago, and was the basis for justifying 2009′s $125 Mil. ‘Spiritual Fitness’ nonsense. Since then, the suicide rate has skyrocketed, as more and more money is being wasted on a religious approach [Read More...]

Military’s $3 million anti-suicide nasal spray

Songs that make you not want to die

When I’m feeling like a sad-bastard I don’t play sad-bastard music. I put on music about overcoming tragedy. I’m not sure if I invented the phrase ‘self-help rock’ or not. It’s not a real genre, but then again, I could probably fill several mix-tapes with it. This is a list of songs that may even [Read More...]
