Vast majority of Suicides made that decision in advance and are calm in their attitude and mentality.
One of the signs to look for when a person has talked about suicide in the last 48 hrs.
If it is a family member DO NOT LEAVE THEM ALONE until YOU get them to a Mental Health professional for a professional diagnosis.
The "patient" should be kept under psych. eval. for at least a few days if not longer to assure medicines have kicked in.
A Nam vet buddy of mine could not take it anymore. RIP Bill Rogers.

Are there any numbers of Vietnam cong fighters with shell shock, suicides...how do they deal with it?
They are human. There is a blue ton of human wreckage in the Nam. They either die, fade away, or stay alive in misery without any VA help no matter how little.

Didja hear about the VC that was being brought back to DaNang when a B-52 flew over? He fell to the ground in terror and shit himself, curled up into a ball.

They are human. One more thing about PTSD -- it can become a problem several years later. Surprise! EEK.

‘The Thirteenth Valley,’
by John Del Vecchio

For those of us that weren’t there. It might help you understand it a little bit. Recommended to me by a guy who was there. It took awhile for it to really sink in.

Ned Beatty, RIP. Had one of the best speeches about how corrupt .g0v works in the movie Shooter.
Hilarious as "Dean" Martin in Back to School.

I found myself reading a little backstory on Deliverance, earlier this evening. Ned Beatty was a virtual nobody when John Boorman found him to play Bobby in Deliverance. Warner Brothers hardly gave him any working capital to film the movie, so he had to really search and scrape to find affordable actors. He got Burt Reynolds and Jon Voigt. Lee Marvin, Marlon Brando and Steve McQueen all turned it down. Then, he found Beatty and Ronnie Cox doing some light stage acting, somewhere. That film made a star out of Reynolds, relaunched Jon Voigt’s career, which was really sagging after Midnight Cowboy and made Beatty’s and Cox’s careers for them. It was a great movie. Very creepy, though, almost like a horror film.

Cue the banjo music! Rip
A funny little note on that music. A couple, actually. Since WB gave Boorman so little money to make Deliverance, he went into a recording studio with a couple of banjo players and spent a couple of hours on that piece of music and that became the whole background score for the movie, basically. Also, the kid who played the part of the young banjo player in the movie liked Ronnie Cox, but didn’t like Ned Beatty at all. So, when they wanted him to turn sour at the end of their guitar/banjo duet, they got Beatty to get into the kid’s space and got the desired effect.

That tune was my first real exposure to the banjo. I've been a bluegrass fan ever since.

But why is the tune called Dueling Banjos when it's a banjo vs. a guitar? :D

Originally it was 2 banjers... the movie was guitar and banjer.... probably because 2 banjers are obnoxious....?

The producers stole that riff. From a black bluegrass performer who did it with banjos.

Forget the name of the guy who wrote/jammed/performed it...IIRC, he died this year.

His ensemble was just jamming during one performance; and later he wrote it down. Guess it was recorded on an album or video somewhere; and the Deliverance screenwriter thought it would be a good interlude and segue.

The creator-performer spent two decades suing to get something of royalties and credit. He got a token amount paid, but no credit officially.

Well, I consider it Karma. He ran from Central America when he was accused of killing or involved in the killing of his businessman neighbor .
Karma can be a BITCH.

There are different estimates of McAfee’s current net worth. It ranges from $ 4 to $ 15 million, although it is possible to see the articles that state that McAfee has around $ 100 million, but these articles do not specify the source of this information. The articles estimating McAfee’s wealth at $4 million are also don’t provide any calculations hence we can’t trust them to the fullest. According to cryptogeek.info, John McAfee’s net worth has grown significantly in 2021. the estimated Net Worth of John McAfee is between $14 Million to $28.7 Million.

Kinda doubt he killed himself, reading his recent tweets.

So, are you insinuating a bought & paid for, grand escape ? :don't    know2::beer::Helicopter:shit happens:
Perhaps. The thing is there's so much trickery afoot these days I can't believe anything out of hand again. I need to rock solid verify everything now. Its a requirement to survive these times IMHO!
