OK, some of the other mods has searched for the "Random Thoughts and Ideas" topic, and it seems to be pretty lost forever. Darn power outage. Since a bunch of people has been missing it, I guess I'll launch a new one just in case.
I'm not 100% sure what the point of it was since I never read it, but wasn't it something like... exactly what the title says? Discuss anything (as long as it follows forum rules). Preferably serious.

Ok, here's a thought/idea to get us started:
I think suicide rates in developed countries would be way lower if more people were aware what signs you need to look for to discover if your friend or family member is planning suicide.
I mean, everyone gets depressed sometimes, but some people sink too far for their own best. I don't know all the signs, but one important sign: if someone is depressed for a long time, then suddenly get happy again, you should keep a close eye on them. It's not uncommon that once someone actually makes up their mind and starts actually planning their suicide, they get out of their depression because they know their lament is soon finally over. And since everyone thinks "fine, (s)he's back to his/her old self again, let's go do something else"... they can do it virtually without interruption. If you have any depressed or troubled friends/family... be aware, and don't let this happen to them.
More information should be possible to find on serious medical sites. Remember, I'm not a psychologist, so I can't guarantee the above applies in every case (or is true in the first case). Take merely as advice and entertainment.
