The curse of the Youtube song

Actually, according to Zerohedge, the number of banker suicides is now 11:

The financial world has been rattled by a rash of apparent suicides, with some of the best and brightest among the finance workers who have taken their lives since the start of the year. A majority of the eight suicides of 2014 have been very public demonstrations, which has suicide-prevention experts puzzled.

“Jumping is much less common as a method for suicide in general, so I am struck by the number that have occurred in recent months in this industry,” said Dr. Christine Moutier, chief medical officer of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.

Perhaps it is because they are not suicides. I was somewhat dubious about the sudden rash of banker deaths, particularly after hearing about the guy who tortured himself with a nail gun. And the 11 deaths doesn’t include Jeffrey Corzine. Bankers have stolen homes and deposits from hundreds of thousands of people and ruined thousands of lives. It seems highly improbable that all of those people are now in a perfect state of Zen equilibrium and have no interest in seeking revenge.
