    Re: Robin Williams commits suicide

    At first I thought it was one of those stupid "Fooled You!" links that have been all over Facebook the last couple of weeks, then I realized those are credible sources. That totally sucks.


    Chuck Lidell: I paint my toenails with pink and black polish. Problem is, I get more paint on my toes and on the carpet than on my nails. Any advice?
    Maria Sharapova: Don't you beat up other guys for a living? I don't know how to answer this.

    If you haven't seen it, you have to watch "World's Greatest Dad" I honestly think it's some of the best acting he ever did.

    This is crummy news. I'm usually not too broken up over celebrity deaths. This one is a whammy though, he really had a great career. Was one of the worlds truly great talents.

    Re: Robin Williams commits suicide

    Any of you old enough to remember the series of comic relief specials that he & Whoopi & Billy Crystal used to host on HBO? Some of the best belly laughs came from those three just riffing off each other....ad libs everywhere...

    Re: Robin Williams commits suicide

    Sad thing. He was a very funny man who was an extremely talented actor in both comedic and dramatic roles.

    Boy....I wish that every person that suffers from depression would realize how many people loved them. My mom's brother was depressed and committed suicide almost 40 years ago. She's never gotten over it. Never be afraid to get help or to help someone you care about get help.

    I don't think anyone ever will, unless they've been that low.

    And these...yeah, I had a cousin commit suicide. And when someone tells you they're depressed, think of Robin before you say "what do you have to be depressed about?" It's not logical, and you can't just look at someone who 'seems to have it all' and think they could never be depressed.

    Re: Robin Williams commits suicide

    Wow!! Depression is a cruel thing. I found my Dad after he committed suicide back in '84. Something I have had to live with for the last 30 years. Sometimes I think I will wake up thinking it was dream. I still think about it to this day. Godspeed Robin.

    So sad. He brought so much happiness and laughter to others, if only he could have found his own.

    Re: Robin Williams commits suicide

    He was so very talented, and so very conflicted. He self-treated that depression with coke for a long time. He was just in rehab recently to just sort of get a refresher on his sobriety, but I can only imagine the place he must have been in to do this. So very sad, and so unnecessary. Suicide is never the answer. :(
