Lighter Side of Suicide

Video Credit: George Carlin      Sent in by: db

It's hard to imagine humor and suicide going together, but George Carlin pulls it off in a humorous comedy monologue about suicide. Sometimes humor is the best way to approach touchy subjects.

Statistics show that every year over 1 million people off themselves. That's 2800 a day, one every 30 seconds - and there goes another guy.

Statistically speaking it is a guy because men are four times more likely than women to commit suicide. As George points out women attempted more but men are more successful. So women if you want to be equal to men you are going to have to get better at suicide.
