Here's a video of him bashing Bush:

What a maniac, god I loved that guy.

I can't help but think about the relation of the two stories on CNN tonight. in one instance we have a story based off of repression and anger, lashing out. The other, we have another tragedy based off of addiction and depression.

How many of us have experiences where we are simply not seeing the point to it anymore. Yes, we have all been insanely upset at points, but what about the luls in life, where you just feel lost and wondering what in the fuck is the point of it all?

And then we have the anger. That raw anger where you are literally just wanting to destroy everything and anyone that comes past you. Wrecking things all over, in a total self destructive meltdown. What are the solutions to that?

Life is short, give the people you care about a hug and enjoy them. You never know how long they will around. Girlfriend's sister's roomate just lost her boyfriend to a motorcycle accident this morning. Boom, gone.

Looking forward to tomorrow.

Apparently Mr. Williams recently had heart surgery and that added another layer of issues to the ones he already had. He definitely should have had a 24 hour caregiver. The idea that he could just go to rehab and be fixed was not realistic.

Given that he had the self confidence to try to keep battling all of that stuff, there is a chance he simply didnt want anyone around 100% of the time.

I agree 100% of the time can be stifling. I meant someone who is around. There appears to be a 13 and 1/2 hour gap between the time his wife went to bed in a separate bedroom and when he was discovered by his personal assistant.

Exactly - especially when looks at the history of his life-long self abuse issues - Robin was not an individual who should have been left on his own during low times of recovery.

Robin Williams' suicide is another indicator that something is wrong with this country. Who would have guessed that Mork from Ork would have hung himself with a belt?

The new news is Mr. Williams had Parkinson's disease. His rapid fire mind and a body that could not keep up must have been a torment for him to deal with.

the trouble with "suicide by depression" is I just can't can't motivated to do it

I heard Robin stood in front of the troops

PWS ? post war syndrome

(EDIT, I'm no longer mad at him, knowing that he was dealing with heart issues and parkinsons, those two physical issues slowed his physical side down so he could not keep up with his rapid fire mind. I'm in awe that he kept it together for so long.)

I'm mad at him. If his own life was getting out of control, just reach deep inside, find his own empathy genes and go help people help themselves.

Especially when one has money, it should be easier to help others. And he had kids, just immerse in other things rather than ones own thoughts.

[ EDIT ] He just got out of rehab in Minnesota - I think that he very much looked to find help - if nothing else his life should point out the fact that being wealthy/successful does not mean being happy. EDIT -> There is a picture of Him ( credited as being after release from rehab ) - and it is just scary the amount of weight he looks to have dropped.

They say that a successful comedian is one who is overly sensitive to the world around them - one who sees ( as well as experiences ) great pain but can't look away. Current times are FILLED with great pain and injustice. Perhaps it was just too much to bear.

Seems like he needed a caregiver. Apparently his wife went to bed in a separate bedroom around 10:30 pm and William's personal assistant found him around noon the next day? I just don't get that lapse of time in which the wife didn't check in on Mr. Williams.
