    i think the net is going to be steel.

    that way, once they jump and break their legs, they can sue the city!!

    does anyone think this is actually going to save a single life?

    i mean, if you really want to kill yourself, there's plenty of ways to do it. knives, guns, pills, ropes, cars, buildings, drowning, etc etc etc.

    is there anyone out there saying, i really want to kill myself, but i'm only gonna do it if i can jump off the golden gate bridge? if that person does exist, they should die.

    $45 million? san francisco is doing so well financially they can afford this shit?

    excellent documentary on this....

    the-bridge-a-year-in-golden-gate-bridge-suicides


    documents 24 jumpers over a period of a year.

    i dont think spending this amount of money on the netting will make a difference...every region has a place that attracts the jumpers...

    oddly enough and with no scienitic evidence..this is usmb...its never needed

    people seem to like one method and stick to it....ya got your jumpers...you got your hangers....you got your gun people...your pill people...and the car people...(heirs still get the insurance) but you rarely hear of people mixing methods....which you would think if you live thru one...you would experiment and try another...but no....just kinda stuck in the rutt

    45 million to maybe save 24 lives a year?

    It could be better spent on youth counseling and such in schools to prevent suicides. Child suicides.


    I believe it is any adult persons right to end their life if they choose to do so.
    or is your time of death only chosen by government or god?
