4chan user livestreams suicide-by-fire attempt

Published

on

A 4chan user who identified himself as “Stephen” attempted to end his life while 200 people watched on the streaming website Chateen.

“As an oldf*g who’s been on 4chan since 2004, I thought I would finally give back to the community,” he wrote. “I am willing to an hero [commit suicide] on cam for you all.”

With the maximum of 200 viewers watching on Chateen, “Stephen” ingested a handful of unidentified pills and washed them down with a copious amount of vodka. In the video, the combined effects of the pills and alcohol render “Stephen” barely comprehensible.

Shortly thereafter, he used a toaster to light a fire in the corner of his room and retreated under his bed.

“#imdead #omgimonfire,” he wrote from there.

Whether “Stephen” was successful in his attempt to take his own life is still a matter of debate. YourAnonNews, a Twitter account associated with the hacktivist group Anonymous, reported that Stephen is the fatality in discussed in this Pittsburgh Post-Gazette article.

Others claim that he is this injured student from the University of Guelph. What is known is that, at the conclusion of the video, firefighters arrive and pull the body of “Stephen” from under the bed.

Watch the disturbing video of the suicide attempt by “Stephen” below.

Writing on Twitter, Luntz complained that the elevator at the Hotel Imperial in Vienna, Austria has not been functioning for three straight days -- and said that the European social welfare state was responsible for this purportedly dire situation.

"Please don’t bring European-style socialism to America," Luntz pleaded.

I’m at the Hotel Imperial in Vienna, Austria. Almost 200 rooms… But the elevator has been broken for 3 days.

Columnists bid a brutal farewell to ‘sneering’ Sarah Sanders: Her ‘awfulness was a thing to behold’

Published

on

On Tuesday, New York Times columnists Gail Collins and Bret Stephens discussed the departure of White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who they agreed was one of the worst press secretaries in modern times.

"She brought us back to the bad old days when women were supposed to be seen and not heard, but lately she wasn't seen all that much either," said Collins. "Who would want to go down in history as the press secretary who got rid of the press briefing?"

‘Nightcrawlers and toadyism’: Trump’s remaining staffers ridiculed for hanging on while others flee off-the-rails president

Published

on

In a caustic piece for the New York Daily News, columnist Richard Cohen mocked the few remaining staffers who have stood by Donald Trump's side since he became president saying they obviously lack anywhere else to go and have apparently have no self-respect.

Or as he put it: "Whatever happened to pride?"

"I ask because reports regularly surface about Donald Trump berating or insulting someone, often an aide, who just takes it," Cohen wrote. "A recent example comes from Michael Wolff’s new book 'Siege,' in which Paul Manafort, once Trump’s campaign chairman but now domiciled in stir, was vulgarly upbraided by the president: 'You’re terrible, you can’t defend me.' Trump allegedly called him a 'lazy f---' and asked 'Am I a f---ing baby?' in a train wreck of a verbal assault."
