Per CDC male miners and oil workers are the most selfish. Construction and farmers are also in the top 5 selfish list.

Healthcare workers are in the bottom half of industries, so I guess that means doctors and nurses are quite thoughtful of others when they off themselves.

I hope you don't. Granted, it's a thankless job, but you never know who's listening, only who's talking.

But the people listening could be the people most likely to benefit.

I know a couple of guys who've made serious attempts. They're both guys who sustained TBIs overseas, doing stuff that anyone would call heroic. They're incredibly brave men. The idea that everyone who commits suicide is a coward is totally misinformed.
