Failed suicide attempt earns two Atlanta men “Stupid” award

Business failing? HIV infected? Looking at the rest of a miserable life and thinking “How can this be changed?” Naturally, mutual suicde is the way to go, right? Just try to come up with a smarter, more likely to succeed method than these two unsuccessful losers.

Two Atlanta men survived an attempt to kill themselves Friday by cutting off their arms with a circular saw, according to Atlanta Police Major Lane Hagin.

The men managed to sever three of their arms about six inches above the wrist, he said.

The two men – ages 40 and 41 – left a suicide note with the manager of their Atlanta apartment building saying they were committing suicide because their business had failed and they were recently diagnosed with HIV, Hagin said.

After reading the note, the manager called police who found the two men in their apartment with “a lot of blood,” the major said.

Their names were not released. Police spokesman Steve Coleman said both were in stable condition at Grady Memorial Hospital late Friday and will undergo psychiatric evaluation.

My theory is the men made it to the 75% mark on their attempt before realizing the error of their selection. But that’s just a theory.
