C'mon, everyone's doing it....

Ok, maybe I'm just feeling particularly Saturnal at the moment, but for some reason I find this image really funny:

Graph of Golden Gate Bridge Suicides, by location on the bridge

I mean, what, are they gonna post a little plaque at lightpost #69, saying "Most Popular Place to End your Miserable Existence"?

That is truly beautiful. Thank you for being as twisted as I am. :)

It must be one helluva view either that or THAT many suicides all have the same sense of gallows humor.

Or maybe that it's pretty much in the middle of the bridge, between SF and Marin. That's my bet.

It makes me want to post a sign at #52 saying "Please jump here! (we need to balance the stats!)"

There is a debate on right now as to whether to erect a barrier. In the newspapaer article there were included five stories. Two were people that gave no signs and one who stopped the car on the bridge with groceries in the back--got out and jumped leaving her car in lane #3.
There was also a survivor who was driiven to it by his schizophrenia in the same artcle.
