Bridges are obviously dangerous and should be banned or at least highly regulated and with low capacity ramps.

I just saw the NY Medical Examiner Van on Fox picking up Philip Seymour Hoffman.

He probably died of destination sickness. He made lots of money and garnered lots of notoriety for his publications and probably had a hot wife or girl friend. He had literally arrived after all of his achievements and yet found he was still empty.

Very good point - suicide is often covered up as ‘accidental’ death.

Then I feel sorry for their souls. I've lived quite a nice life, but am mentally prepared to live under a bridge if necessary.

About 20 years ago, a friend was commenting on suicides and told me that these people were stupid, because suicide denies your loved ones any insurance money. He then said that if it were him, he’d go into the garage, open the hood of his car and spread tools around; then, if he were found dead, they would just assume that he as working on the car and was careless. The family would get the insurance.
Only 10 days later, he was found dead in a manner exactly like he’d described. Talk about spooky. I didn’t see that one coming.

What if they are not suicides.
What if they are a cover up? And if so, of what?
What if they are revenge murders for losses? And if so by whom?
What if they are an attempt to destabilize the markets?

The futility of making economics a science is a futile exercise based on random events, unpredictable human choices and hundreds of intentional interventions and accidental interventions. The reality is SWAGS not scientific findings.

Then, when accountants and CFO’s take those SWAGs as reality and run spreadsheet trend line goals/quotas based on those SWAGs and the greed of the board and stock owners. The SWAG final results often have severe consequences on those saddled with the SWAG goals.

Even more suicides in Europe:

I think the petro-dollar’s end is near, and since the West is tied very tightly to it, TSHTF when it ends.

Some insurance policies do pay on suicide if you have held the policy for over two years.

Either that or he got pitched off.
If you want to kill someone and make it look like a suicide, flinging people off high things works pretty good.

Suicide is covered by life insurance unless it occurs within the contestibility period, which is 1 or 2 years - depending on the state.

I wonder what Madoff "has" that keeps him alive. However, his son "committed suicide". In a Mafia-style touch of symbolism, he was hanged on a dog leash.

“I wonder what Madoff “has” that keeps him alive.”

Agree.

No doubt the son was suicided.

I’m surprised the Mossad hasn’t jumped in and done some damage, although maybe they did the son in.

I agree, and I also always remember the series of deaths of bio-warfare scientists, and the unsolved nature of the anthrax terrorism in 2001. Many unknown forces at work.

I remember the 'Star Wars' scientists in Britain 'committing suicide' in weird ways, in this-can't-be-a-coincidence numbers. Doing things like tying a rope around a tree, making a noose of the other end and driving off at high speed.

Many unknown forces at work.

I've no doubt.
