    He's just about the only human one who didn't mutate really though, isn't it?

    He's probably the best known one, but there are other comic characters that are just normal humans, like the Punisher.

    Yeah kermi3 ruined all the suicide letters on GD, just in-case anyone took our horrible advice to heart and actually did the deed. None of us could figure out why suicidal peeps always insisted on posting on a geek board to tell of their troubles. But then again, none of us still understands why we get peeps who insist on posting about every language known to man, except C/C++ - on a C/C++ board.

    But it's all for the better. I, for one, enjoy the tidied up GD board.

    How'd kermi3 manage that?? And have we gotten any of them?

    A quick search revealed 196 suicidal hits in cboard.

    Ah, Number 15

    Well it's a good thing that kermi suggested because we weren't really giving 'good' advice. Most of the time it was in the line of....stop annoying us with it and go do it or shutup. And even though that's how we cranky old cboarders are, it's probably not the best thing to say when someone is not firing on all cylinders.

    It's not the good thing to say under most circumstances I guess. Not on a board that is supposed to help everyone, from the newcommer to the seasoned programmer.
    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.
