Army suicide rate could top nation's this year  

Posted by Jeff in , , ,


From CNN.Com:

As of August, 62 Army soldiers have committed suicide, and 31 cases of possible suicide remain under investigation, according to Army statistics. Last year, the Army recorded 115 suicides among its ranks, which was also higher than the previous year.

Army officials said that if the trend continues this year, it will pass the nation's suicide rate of 19.5 people per 100,000, a 2005 figure considered the most recent by the government

This alone should tell you that the situation is NOT improving over there.

FOND DU LAC, Wis. - A 54-year-old man says his obsessive-compulsive disorder drove him to eat 23,000 Big Macs in 36 years.

He's been eating a Big Mac a day for every year that I've been alive, minus one day:

The only day he skipped a Big Mac was the day his mother died, to respect her request.

I think instead of Big Macs, I'm going to try to have OCD sex once a day for the next 36 years. I don't think I can make it, but it'll sure be fun to try...
