Posted in: 5 found dead in suspected group suicide in Tokyo See in context

The reason why people commit suicide in numbers and not alone is because our bodies have an immediate instinct to save itself. Bercause of the body’s instinct, someone who is suicidal might stop in the middle of the process because of their instinct to survive, even if they are mentally resolved to die. Having other people there, as a group, makes the “success” rate increase. You might notice that the “success” rate of suicides with methods that are fast and difficult to second guess (like guns, trains, falling from great heights) more often result in death than the methods where it is easier to change their mind during, such as CO2 poisoning, most other poisoning, overdose of pills, drowning, bleeding, hanging, etc.

Anyway, suicides are heart breaking and I hope this can help us all resolve to show people that we care more often than before you read this article.

Posted in: Have you had any bad experiences using Airbnb? See in context

I am staying with my kids in Japan for 31 days and my Airbnb was cancelled 10 days before I was to check in! It was very difficult to find a new place and I could not find anything close to the previous place or within my budget. But, now that we are here, I’m hoping that the rest of my Airbnb experience is positive. This is the first time I have ever even used Airbnb!
