While anarchy can often turn a humdrum weekend into something unforgettable, eventually the mob must be kept from stealing the conch and killing Piggy.

Hey INTL.

Apologies in advance if this post is disjointed in any way. Kind of emotional on this end of the screen.

This morning my girlfriend found Joel (better known as NNY) dead in his apartment. He had hung himself in his closet. We had not heard from him since Monday and she was worried abut him (had been having dreams about him killing himself). So she, having his spare key, went to check on him and found him.

I know he hadn't been around here very much the past few years, but I figured there were a few people here that knew him and might care to know what's happened.

I...don't really have anything else. The guy was like a brother to me and it's hard to cope with the fact that he's gone. Just reaching out to some of the people that knew him(-ish) I guess.

Cheers.

I'm glad I said I liked his beard last week.

Really sorry to hear about that Arnok. MAGUSMAGUSMAGUSMAGUS

That seems insane he was posting in the picture thread a week ago and now he's gone.

I'm speechless. He always seemed like a really great dude, I was really happy to see him around again.

I'm really sorry to you Arnok, I hope you and his other friends and family are doing all right.

I always liked Joel and am sad that he is gone. He was one of the few people on this site that actually tried to see others' points of view. While I am sorry for his family and friends, in some weird way I respect his decision to go out on his own terms.

Wow, I am really shocked... it's kind of hard to believe. He seemed like an awesome dude, we had some great AIM chats like 7 years ago... seems like barely any time since then. One of the best people here hands down.

He was a great guy to talk to and I enjoyed chatting with him, though we hadn't spoken in awhile. Damn.

I don't know what to say. As others have said, this is particularly hard to stomach since he had been posting aain lately. I feel very sorry for him, his family and friends.

I hope you're doing reasonably fine, Arnok.

I didn't know him well but I talked to him a bit on the chat when he came back recently and was looking forward to talking to him more. It's a damn shame.

The most interesting people tend to lose interest in life. It is sad really.

I just lost a friend as well Nate. My long time friend and tattoo artist shot himself in the head last week. I was confused, angry, sad, and had an overwhelming feeling of guilt. I kept going over a list of questions in my brain:

"Why did I not see this coming?"
"What could I have done to prevent this?"
"What was so bad that made him feel that suicide was the only option?"


Don't focus on why he did it. It will only make you go insane, and in the end its a completely moot point anyway.

A friend told me that no one can lead a person to happiness or make them cope with the difficulties of life. Don't beat yourself up or harbor any guilt for what happened. Joel was grown and he made a decision - a selfish decision but it was what he wanted. All you can do is respect that decision and move on. Would he want you sitting around being a sad bastard? I am a strong believer that people meet and interact with each other for a reason. You guys obviously shared quite a bit with each other. Focus on what you learned from Joel and apply it to the rest of your life. Bodies cease functioning but memories and lessons you carry with you for the rest of your life.
Buy me a drink. Buy me a drink. I'm better than you are but not as good as I think.

I am actually quite grateful that he came back here and posted briefly before he passed on. Although I wouldn't say that I knew him very well in years previous, the conversation I had with him in the chat-room a week or so ago helps me put this into perspective. I'm glad that I got to interact with him, however briefly, before he made his decision. In a way, I wonder if his decision to come back to INTL, post a picture and such, was part of his ultimate decision to end his life. Perhaps a bit selfish and grandiose-thinking about the impact of INTL, but I sort of feel that this could have been a place where Joel found solace in social interaction.

Arnok I sent you an email to your g-mail account that you have posted in your profile. I'm not sure if you still use that email, but if you do and choose not to reply, I can respect that. Otherwise, I'd like to hear from you.
