    Au contraire!
    People's lives may feel like crap at a given time. Trust me, I work with the poorest working people in the US. But the value of one human life is worth more than all of the gold in the world (a translation from Spanish of my GF's favorite quote).

    I like Democritus: "Opinion says 'hot' and 'cold' but the reality is atoms and empty space."

    Life, itself, is great. I wouldn't be without it. I can't say I make the most of it, though.

    Yes, I do:
    Vale mas la vida de un ser humano que todo el oro del hombre mas rico del mundo
    -- Che

    This us the quote as painted on the wall of a Barrio Adentro clinic in Caracas. There are other versions of the quote.

    On top of being a stunningly beautiful southern belle, a kick-ass, ass-kicking Red who is loved by thousands -- I am not making up that figure-- my GF has an unwavering love of humanity and she is ten times more fluent in Spanish than I am.<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3

    'The life of a human being is worth more than all the gold of [belonging to] the richest man in the world'.

    The sentiment's there. And that's why I can never agree with Guevara's methods or his supporters.

    Yes, but PE doesn't want to discuss it so I won't.

    Damn! He didn't strike me like a stalker. But now I can't remember what it was about.

    My girlfriend is telling me she's going to commit suicide, and nothing I do or say is seeming to dissuade her.

    Sigh. I was gonna complain about the foolish optimism at the first half of this page... :(

    IO, I know how she feels; I've felt the same way multiple times. Best you can do is help her the best you can and call 911 if need be. :undecide:
