Somebody jumped off the 23rd floor of Pandemic Studios last night in Westwood. I'm surprised that more suicide doesn't happen in games and other creative fields considering the insane hours some of these people pull. It's scary what can happen when you push somebody over the edge.
do you have any idea how many people kill themselves each month inside the luxor casino in vegas?
they keep it under wraps though as it's bad for pr.
see each of those white rectangles going up on each side... those are rooms. from any elevator anyone can go up and jump from the ledge, as by design the walkways are open to the center of the casino.
i can't gamble there as i'm always nervous someone is going to land on me.
Ah, I've been there a bunch of times, Garrett. But, I've never really thought, "That would be the perfect spot to crawl out on that ledge and jump."
You'd think they would have thought about that as people gamble their life savings away to win money to save their dying grandmother or something -- people get out of their right mind.
What a bummer that would be to see something like that happen during your bachelor party gamblerama. How can they possibly keep that under wraps? It seems as though some news station would pick it up or there would be lawsuits going about the bad design.
thats disgusting garrett
i don't think so.
a good friend of mine lives in the outskirts of town and says it's rarely in the paper.
the first time i stayed there i was surprised i could take the elevator to my room even without swiping the card first to make it go. it's crazy.
and there was me hoping to find a nice pic of some top quality knitwear, no such luck I see.

what? there are parts of the casino that are open to the top like that. some parts are covered and below but some are open. i don't like the feeling at all.
sorry I thought that would go the wrong way after i posted,
what I meant was ppl driven to suicide bcos they blew the lot at the black jack table.
f*cking greed eh??
Undo: I would assume someone who would do that -- gamble to the point of desperation -- are either at the end of their road or they have such an uncontrollable problem that they really dont care anymore.
The sad part, I think, is they were prepared to kill themselves if it went badly, but most likely willing to live if it went in their favor. Literally a gamble on ones life set out on a table.
absolutely shellie, i'd like to think that even if i lost everything in the world I wouldnt cut the whole thing short......but i suppose you never know if and when you get there
"Do not stay in the pyramid if you feel depressed or are likely to loose all your possessions . The rooms are entered by balconies that overlook the Casino area and apparently there is an issue with suicides ! The Buffet was moved downstairs because of this ! "
