    So another well-known depressive has taken his own life.
    Tony was one of TV's true good guys.
    A 21st century adventurer, who seemed to take learning and experience by the balls.
    A modern day "man's man".
    He will be missed.

    he overcame so much
    I really enjoyed his show
    his storytelling
    I guess the guilt ate him up
    felt he didn't deserve what he had
    sad

    he was a hard core drug abuser in his youth and early life
    he felt that he should have died instead was given a second chance
    suffered from severe depression
    he had a dream job
    bright future
    chose death over the pain of living

    It's not stunning in a shock kind of way, as he seemed to carry an underlying sadness despite the overcoat of optimism.
    One of my favorite 'celebrity' people simply for being so God damned human, his final act of humanity--- a man who lost in the wrestle against despair--- crushes at least one of the small glimmers of hope littering the path left behind.
    It's hard to forgive him except for the knowledge that darkness plagues, hounds us all.

    May God grant him the peace and solace which eluded him here.

    I watched a lot of his shows and was just as shocked as anyone at his suicide.

    He had the world as his oyster, literally🙁 and opted out of it.

    Anthony Bourdain and Jeremy Wade have been my crushes on TV these past few years simply because they are both so real. No pretentiousness with either of them, no boasting, no BS.

    RIP Tony. We already miss you.

    Yes...excellent to crush on Jeremy too. He's another great example of what an enlightened modern male can be.

    Jeremy had a close brush in a Brazilian jungle plane crash. Hopefully, he values his life ever-the-more because of it.

    RIP Tony. I shall remember for the rest of my days when you presented Houston to the rest of the world showing how culturally diverse my hometown is.

    i never watch 'regular' television, heck, i remember when the news said we would all be watching 'pay tv' and commercials would be a thing of the past...
    HA!!!
    i had zero idea of who anthony bourdain is/was, same for ms kate spade...
    i did, some years back, know of steve irwin because, crikey mate...
    so i'm clueless about famous folks and they way they inspire so many thousands, millions, billions, of people...
    i'm told that there are phone numbers to call, if you need help...
    i'm told there are resources to aid those who flail about aimlessly because they have no compass...
    i'm told the anguish i feel daily is 'temporary' and i ought not take action on that which will change,

    all by itself...

    what a flippin joke this society is...
    we really care about you...
    hogwash...

    yer on yer own gomer, nobody is coming to help...

    what i'm saying,
    badly,
    is that depression does NOT always have a solution...
    medicine has a term, chronic, to describe that which NEVER GOES AWAY...
    oh, but you say, it can be managed!!!
    have you spent forty years on this planet, going in orbital circles around a puny star, knowing that each and every day that you wake you are going to struggle with feelings of despair???

    no???

    well, ain't that just peachy...

    do you think there are drugs that make you feel all better???
    have you taken any of these miracle substances???

    i have...
    i've taken all of them...

    most do not do what they are advertised to do...
    they others make it seem things are better, until you realize that being a drooling zombie without direction is WORSE than painful loneliness...

    Buddha got it right
    life is suffering
    grasping
    a constant struggle

    but I think, in the end, we go back to the stars from where we came
