That’s some link Telemark as I was reading it a big graphic splash of blood appeared out of no where (on the web page supplied, yuck)

Economic downturns lead directly to increased suicides. I think that link is going to hold in pretty much any future economic downturn. So yes, it will happen again.

Just in case something goes wrong Monday December 19th … Here’s a good thread to read: "How well do you think you could weather a “bad break”?
