Driving the country to suicide
I use a yoke called "Woopra" to keep an eye on this site.
It’s a fancy yoke with a dashboard that looks like it belongs in Launch Control Centre, or a nuclear power station. All sorts of fancy graphs and tables and colourdy thingies that dance around the screen as people visit.
On of the yokes is what I believe is called a ‘cloud’. It’s a little box that shows what words people are using to find the site. The more often the word is used, the bigger it is in the box. For a long time now, I have been seeing words like Senior, Sex, Nude and various other words that you wouldn’t normally hear in polite company.
Lately however things have changed. I have noticed one particular search appearing on a fairly regular basis, and quite honestly it scares the shite out of me.
On a daily basis, people are searching for information on how to commit suicide. I happened to glance off the subject a couple of times, so they find this site.
Has it really come to this? Are those cretins in the government so obsessed with cozying up to the banks and Europe that they aren’t aware of the total devastation they are causing in people’s lives? Are they not aware that they are not only destroying people’s businesses but also their lives?
This has gone so far beyond a joke that something has to be done, and done quickly.
Sometimes I despair.
That’s a load Mustapha Puff. If it had any validity “smoking” would be the biggest key word or “Nazis.”.
I agree GP. Sometimes I despair as well.
In fact I was so depressed last night thinking about health insurance, the economy, the wars, lost jobs, my lost savings, Social Security, retirement funds, etc . . .
I called a Suicide Hotline.
I had to press “1” for English.
I was connected to a call centre in Pakistan .
I told them I was suicidal.
They got excited and asked if I could drive a truck……
Might be my fault Groandad… I signed off an Irish political forum yesterday for the last time with a ‘best of luck to those of you who realise what’s going on around the Dail and to those of you who are sitting around doing nothing about it do your country a favour and commit suicide’. Or words to that effect.
Hopefully the roughly one in five Irish voters who still say they’d vote Fianna Fail are taking the advice to heart. It’d be no loss and possibly profitable for the Irish taxpayer in the end. More than bloody NAMA or Anglo will and that’s for sure.
TT – You want to watch yourself. A wee touch of obsession creeping in here? 😉
Mossy – That is sick. But I have to confess, I cracked a smile.
Cap’n – Sure didn’t our own beloved Bertie tell us that anyone who talked about a recession would be better off killing themselves? And he was our Glorious Leader at the time, so he should know best?
a guy walks into a library and asks “Do you have any books on suicide?” Librarian says “Fuck off – you won’t bring it back”
@dessiegee Now that is funny! I shall try and remember that one the next time I want to liven up a party.
Suicides are the dead soldiers in the trenches in this war on working people and small businesses. It’s tragic and mostly goes unreported because they are not car crash victims or murder victims.
Like this poor man…
(by the way, the story seems to have been killed off in Irish news)
Nice nasty one there Mossy!
