Just read the first 50 very thoughtful comments on this thread.

The Sheen phenomena is simply reality and fantasy (TV show) colliding. It’s not hard to blend the TV show and Sheen’s collapse as a package.

Watching one filthy rich, self-indulgent spoiled brat’s fall from grace is also a form of escapism in these tumultuous and depressing times.

We are helpless to cure Charlie Sheen and we are equally helpless in solving the other disease that affects our Nation.

Pray for both of them.

I think his rant against things he has been exposed to in AA is also a rant against his father.

Sometimes, a drug and/or alcohol addict who has dried out numerous times becomes inoculated to all of the language and sensibility of recovery in general. The world of addition and recovery becomes a game they play and the recovery world becomes as bizarre to them as the addicted world.

Generally they turn away from recovery repeatedly at that point and spiral into the ground like an aircraft with all horizon reference lost.

(snip) The internship will focus on executing a social media strategy that will build on the success Charlie Sheen has attained in setting the Guinness World Record for the fastest time to reach one million followers on Twitter. The #TigerBloodIntern is expected to be proactive, monitor the day-to-day activities on the major social media platforms, prepare for exciting online projects and increase Charlie’s base of followers.

You will learn how to promote and develop the social media network of Hollywood’s most trending celebrity.

Poor Charlie doesn't realize that the million followers he's achieved could just have easily been reached by William Shatner having a slow-motion psychotic breakdown on Boston Legal, or by any other star publicly melting down.

His "social media strategy" is to go stark, raving mad in front of an audience. That isn't a sustainable strategy.

He's got perhaps one more peak event left in his arsenal.

And that would be a hostage situation, followed by live Twitter video of him being taken out by a SWAT sniper.

I don't think any would-be interns want responsibility for that on their resumes. It isn't a "winner".

I think Charlie is trying to kill himself. I hope someone gets him into a hospital.

His father and brother need to have him committed.

I hope they can.

He needs to go to that haven of all Has beens—Haiti, Do some good work with the starving people of that sad land. Maybe make a movie with other fallen stars—like Mel Gibson. I even have a script—Zombie Snakes—its about snakes that bite zombies and become —well—zombie snakes. The hero gives his life to save an orphanage by blowing up all the snakes. Hire some local actors,—a local production could work with the right director. Have Lion’s Gate release it. Just an idea.

Yes, Sheen Sr. did have a heart attack and it was brought on partially by his alcoholism.

I've been though this with a family member. He was writing a book where one word represented a whole concept if only everyone else were as enlighten as he was, they would grasp it. I had to jump though hoops to get him committed against his will. It only took about two weeks for the monitoring of his prescribed meds and his excessive consumption of energy drinks containing ephedrine that calmed him down. My family member had the advantage of not being rich and famous. There is hope for Charlie, but only if the powers that be will treat him as any other poor citizen.

Don’t eat the purple mushrooms on Planet Charliesheen
cause you’ll cry when you hear the trumpetcarrots sing
you can ride the clouds on high and see the moonring
when all is said and done, it doesn’t mean a thing

I don’t recommend it, if you have a heart condition
you can drink the Koolaid but it has no nutrition
Mt. Nebo is haunted with floating apparitions
Nobody goes there because of the superstitions

I started talking gibberish from the very start
people laughed but it was what was on my heart
there you can be anybody - even be a king
that’s what life is like, on Planet Charliesheen

Money means nothing compared to a principle
in the mists of Halcyon, a person feels invincible
freedom from all wants, everythings dispensible
it seems all mixed up to the ones who are sensible

The sky is kinda yellow, the water kinda green
nothing here is dirty, nothing here is clean
you can scream your head off, it doesn’t make a scene
and that’s how it is, on Planet Charliesheen
