The college I went to at oxford had one of the highest suicide rates  
in the nation because it had some nice old windows on higher floors  
that didn't have anything preventing a person from falling out (you  
know, that law stating you can't modify 13th century buildings and  
all that.)

Maybe students realize that if this is the pressure they start off only gets worse. And seeing as 99% of what people do is  
fundamentally pointless anyway, why bother to go on? So easy to  
justify suicide that way. A dangerous slippery slope.
