Today, a customer started a conversation by telling me how smart he'd heard I am, and finished it by explaining his theory that only smart people commit suicide. He then gave me a knowing look and said, "Just something I thought you should think about," and left without buying anything. FML

Back on the subject, he's actually right. Intelligent people are more likely to recognize their faults and flaws than are... "normal" people, and to make a big deal of them. However, it doesn't mean all intelligentsia are doomed to kill themselves.

I don't think he realised that he can get fined for that. I forget the correct wording, but encouraging suicide is a crime, and if they go through with it, the person who encouraged it can get jail time for manslaughter. I'm not sure I put that very clearly, sorry.
