Wow...I actually visited and toured Hoover Dam and Lake Mead.
I did back in the early 90s, very impressive inside and out. I wonder if they still do the indepth tours they used to do; with terrorism being on the peoples minds so much I could see them limiting the access you used to get.

There's actually a video of one guy jumping, some tourist just coincidently caught it on tape. You can actually see the blood spray from his bounce. Terrible, its bad enough to take your own life, but to do it in a place filled with tourists and children; whats wrong with people....

That's my gripe.

I understand those people are in pain and desperate, but why in a national travel location where there are always people present?

That's even worse than our local jumpers, where the jump off the HOF bridge trying to time it to land in front of a semi going down I77 below. Stopping traffic for hours and disrupting others life just because you had a run of bad luck or something...

I never understood those that do it publicly. Not that I condone it, but if you're going to do something like that, go in the woods, leave a note that it was not a homicide, and do it in the middle of nowhere. Let nature clean you up, not other people.

I've got a couple friends who work on the rail road, they say everyone whos rode the rails very long has had someone kill themselves on the tracks. I understand people commiting suicide aren't thinking straight, but damn, why would you want to scar another person for life by making them take your life.
