    Default Bhutan Khaw happy - only 1 succeed in 4 or 5 every day in suicide attempts

    EVERY day, four or five people in Singapore attempt suicide. At least one succeeds.
    Doctors and medical social workers say those trying to kill themselves also appear to be getting younger.

    The problem used to affect mainly the elderly, but in recent years it has spread to those in their 30s and 40s, said Ms Esther Lim, head of medical social services at the Singapore General Hospital (SGH).

    Doing some math
    365 * 5 = 1,825
    1,825/5,000,000 = 0.03% of total population

    Looks about right we are an unhappy bunch

    紀雲.

    晨云之美目不見
    夜深人靜心念云

    年少時多心不定
    老時心悔不惜云

    一生能見几晨雲
    無望心死此决歌


    思云

    辰云之美心头思
    此生无缘再见云

    但愿日落有云伴
    末路走来无遗憾

    虽然辰云随风散
    但云永在心头思

    忘云
    从起点到终点
    云得到的是伤痕
    隆得到的是遗憾
    伤痕随时间愈合
    遗憾将伴隆一生
