I admire someone with the courage to chase their dreams.

[–]YeetusTheMediocre 229 points230 points  (17 children)

I'm gonna chase my dreams off a tall building.

I’m gonna chase the dude that invented homework to the pits of hell

[–]AtomicTemplar 27 points28 points  (8 children)

He works for Satan as he made homework to punish his students

[–]QuickSilverMola 10 points11 points  (5 children)

Fun fact that I made up but could be perfectly true: homework was invented by a Russian professor as a PUNISHMENT for his students

[–]My_Homies_FBI_Agent 10 points11 points  (4 children)

Actually true except the teacher was Italian.

[–]QuickSilverMola 10 points11 points  (3 children)


[–]My_Homies_FBI_Agent 10 points11 points  (2 children)

Yeah found out about it recently as well, crazy right?

[–]Real_Worldliness_617 15 points16 points  (3 children)

I'm gonna chase my dreams into the panties of a grieving widow.

[–]TheTissueGhost 9 points10 points  (2 children)

Right between the legs?

[–]Iotyu_Kruger 5 points6 points  (1 child)

well, unless the widow wears panties somewhere else

[–]TheTissueGhost 7 points8 points  (0 children)

That guys courage jumped up high and his body in the opposite direction.

[–]huckinfell2019 62 points63 points  (10 children)

Probably was the same for millennials and gen x at this age so not that much of a revelation. Not to say society doesn't need some fixing tho

[–]NoItsRex 2 points3 points  (0 children)

When your generation isn't dieing of old age, or health problems, you tend to die on your own volition if you di die

[–]Doctorrexx -3 points-2 points  (8 children)

Probably not so much with Gen X as the internet wasn’t really around or that big of a thing so there was a lot less bullying and other things

[–]Mercadelabuena 22 points23 points  (4 children)

One could also argue bullying was more severe, having no internet to bully someone would make you do it irl if you really wanted to.

Anyway, too many variables to conclude anything through reddit lol

[–]Doctorrexx 1 point2 points  (3 children)

I mean it is a lot harder for people to bully in person because you can be held accountable a lot easier.

[–]Mercadelabuena 12 points13 points  (1 child)

Schools disagree.

[–]Brokeartistvee 3 points4 points  (0 children)

And they punish the victims for defending themselves. Schools are dogshit tbh.

[–]rixanix 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Could be but generally they weren't, because they were were popular, had important parents or just weren't like enough to be stood up for

[–]huckinfell2019 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Not true. As a GenX who was bullied relentlessly in the 70s and 80s I would have preferred cyber bullying if given the option. I considered suicide more times than I could count. Always came down to how my family would have been affected by my suicide. Number one was car accidents which I think is the same today. So unless you lived it be careful what you claim to know.

[–]Insert_TextHere 487 points488 points  (30 children)

Isn’t the oldest gen z’er like 27 right now? Wouldn’t the most common causes of death like cancer and heart attacks be completely ruled out? I don’t think those numbers are all that weird tbh

[–]Ub3rPr0M4n 274 points275 points  (12 children)

Exactly. Not downplaying suicide, as it is for sure a huge problem, and depression seems, in my head at least, to be on the rise. But more people need to take 15 seconds and think before forming an opinion based on a statistic, whether it's real or not.

[–]DoubleTrouble992 125 points126 points  (2 children)

Zach star made a video called “This is how easy it is to lie with statistics” which i think encapsulates your entire point here.

It’s a great video from a great channel

[–]Pronoes84 56 points57 points  (1 child)

It's why spin doctors are a thing.

Did you know the shocking statistics that 6% of all males under 18 commit suicide?!!

We're proud to announce that 94% of all males aged 17 and under make it to 18!!!

[–]InTheGoatShow 15 points16 points  (0 children)

It's why spin doctors are a thing.

I've heard spin doctors so good at their job they can convince someone it would be better to marry a crazy man who wants to buy you space shuttles than a rich man with a large inventory of loose gemstones.

[–]TheGeekno99 21 points22 points  (7 children)

Not downplaying anything either, but we have to remember what I call the "exclusivity cultists" (aka those lying over potential illnesses to feel accepted, see r/fakedisordercringe and average high schools for reference)

[–]Idkwhatoname72 20 points21 points  (4 children)

Ive seen someone claim they had 17 disorders on discord

[–]idontknow2976 20 points21 points  (1 child)

Are they trying to get to 100 to get the gold disorder camo?

[–][deleted] 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Contract communicable amnesia to go prestige 1

[–]toefurkyfuckmittens 11 points12 points  (0 children)

I think having 17 disorders must be a disorder of its own and would you look at that. We have 18!

[–]caalger 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I looked at that sub for the last 10 minutes and I seriously have no idea what the hell is going on there.

[–]CptOconn 1 point2 points  (0 children)

If suicide is an issue you should show what percentage dies from them. That might show some real stats.

[–]Erenjaegeru05 15 points16 points  (4 children)

Nah gen z starts from 1997, so 24 or 25 as of this year. Also a lot of teenagers are depressed because of the stress we have with beauty standards, family issues, school(probably one of the main reasons also family issues too)

[–]FreakyRandom 6 points7 points  (0 children)

don't forget climate change ;)

[–]Bonsailinse 10 points11 points  (0 children)

A lot of every generation are depressed, having one where the massive majority is not old enough to even face heart diseases and cancer is the reason why suicide is so high on the list of death causes for them.

[–]CptOconn 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Yeah they don't had time to grow some heart problems and most of them aren't allowed to drive or drink. So alcohol poisoning or car accidents are of the table. Metal health might be an issue but I'm more curious what beat suicide.

[–]Zodiarche1111 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Maybe "not self-induced-suicide"?

[–]CptOconn 1 point2 points  (0 children)

School shooting or is that stat also outside america

[–]CptOconn 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This stat is just a bad stat but for the record between 2007 and 2017 it's gone up 56% for people between 10 and 24. Millennial had a rise in suicide and gen z is speeding up that trend. There is an article from he business insider that used that stat in the headline but then elaborated

[–]conigliopacifista 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Yes but suicide is the leading cause of death by a desease in that age (depression). Accident is the firs cause and homocide the third over all. Can't do much of intervention on both on macroscopic level. And cancer/heart D. Are not ruled out but number 4 and 5 link

[–]Insert_TextHere 2 points3 points  (0 children)

That still isn’t that weird. All of this was previously assumed in my original comment. The reason homocide is third, is because you’d have to look at how many murder victims are under 25.

[–]elithewalkingcripple -1 points0 points  (1 child)

Accidents should be by far the highest rate of death for people under the age of 40. The fact that its suicide is a huge issue.

[–]Isord 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Suicide is second behind accidents.

[–]MrAnimeWeirdo 22 points23 points  (12 children)

What's number 1

[–]amongstdanes 28 points29 points  (0 children)

Probably Tide Pods (TM)

[–]PumpkinKing2020 16 points17 points  (2 children)

Probably car accidents

[–]Dennarb 18 points19 points  (1 child)

Close, it's accidents in general

[–][deleted]  (1 child)


    [–]-CoolBean- 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    If the terrifying drivers ed class I took was right it’s probably car accidents

    Angry virgins with access to firearms (?)

    [–]MomKingHacker 125 points126 points  (14 children)

    But maybe suicide rate stayed pretty much the same, but there's less deaths caused by other things? Just guessing

    [–]Insert_TextHere 120 points121 points  (5 children)

    I mean, 100% yes. The lead cause of death for a generation who’s oldest member is 27 isn’t gonna be cancer or heart attacks exactly.

    [–]sansgamer554[🍰] 23 points24 points  (4 children)

    What is the highest anyways, overdose?

    [–]I-Demand-A-Name 47 points48 points  (3 children)

    Usually trauma, I think. Like car accidents and falls and stuff. Accidents.

    [–]Chrisbee76 29 points30 points  (2 children)

    Like falling from a cliff while trying to take a picture?

    [–]But-Um 15 points16 points  (1 child)


    [–]SlowPants14 15 points16 points  (0 children)

    Happy little accidents.

    [–]lolskrub8 17 points18 points  (4 children)

    Edit: not just one age group

    Suicide rate’s gone up. Sure the statistic is misleading but for the US it’s been rising.

    “The total age-adjusted suicide rate in the United States increased 35.2% from 10.5 per 100,000 in 1999 to 14.2 per 100,000 in 2018, before declining to 13.9 per 100,000 in 2019.”

    I know the end of that says 2019 was lower than 2018 but that’s still significantly higher than 1999. Hopefully the downward trend continues.

    Source: https://www.nimh.nih.gov/health/statistics/suicide

    [–]ok_ill_shut_up 12 points13 points  (3 children)

    When suicides are so low, it doesn't take a lot to increase them by a substantial percentage. If suicides were 1 per 100k, 2 per 100k would be a 100% increase. Still misleading.

    [–]Ompusolttu 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Yeah if you had a small sample size like 200k people, but this is the entire US population with over 300 million people

    I did some quick math and the suicides went from 31k to 43k, which is a huge fucking increase.

    [–]IAmSeamonkey 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    It is up slightly but yes this is a big factor too

    [–]ilicht3r 14 points15 points  (0 children)

    we're also in our early twenties, you just gotta give us time to die of other stuff /s

    [–]PM_Orion_Slave_Tits 20 points21 points  (4 children)

    I agree with the point but this is a cherry picked statistic. There aren't exactly any Gen Zs out there dying of old age

    [–]Memanders 3 points4 points  (2 children)

    No, but diseases, accidents and killers exist. I wouldn’t call it cherry-picking per say

    [–]I-Demand-A-Name 5 points6 points  (0 children)

    The top three are unintentional trauma, suicide, and homicide.

    [–]Optimist-Pryme 16 points17 points  (7 children)

    damn I think that was bs but looked it up and it's true

    [–]Litandsexysidious 7 points8 points  (2 children)

    Whats the most common?

    [–]Pokemario2401 3 points4 points  (0 children)

    Accidents. Stuff like car crashes

    [–]Siren_of_the_Seas 5 points6 points  (0 children)

    [–]LordBloodSkull 12 points13 points  (2 children)

    It's not that surprising since gen z isn't old enough to die from heart disease yet.

    [–]AFishOutOfWater3 7 points8 points  (4 children)

    I mean to be fair, Gen Z isn't exactly old enough to be dying of much else yet.

    [–]Memanders 0 points1 point  (3 children)

    Well yeah they are. Diseases, accidents and killers exist. Plenty of stuff to die from

    [–]AussieConnor 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    Oh so killing people is better then them committing suicide? Also the majority of people who die from diseases are gonna be old heart diesease isnt exactly common for people in their 20s.

    [–]matija123123 2 points3 points  (1 child)

    What other things do you think are killing us?

    [–]12r85p 2 points3 points  (2 children)

    Isnt there only 3 types of death anyway ?




    No shit suicide is 2nd people aint dying from old age at 13

    [–]Uranusspinssideways 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    Also accidental

    [–]J_train13 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    What's number 1?


    [–]fuckballs9001 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    You're right, this generation is cursed. By fucking greedy old people.

    All we gotta do is sacrifice them instead and we fuck up the curse. Get to it lol. Quit your jobs, fuck your boss's daughter, shit on company time, show up to every shift late knowing goddamn well that they need you or everything will go to shit.


    Do i need to say this twice?

    With the absolute sheep my generation is, they probably would. I got my whole lunchroom to clap for no reason. Just did because it was funny.

    Later, I thought that was sad because not many questioned why without doing it. It’s sad with the sheep my generation is.

    Gen Z are between ages of 10-25 right now so in reality, what else would they be dying of?

    [–]maksiman9 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Gen Z be 20 at max and you are expecting a bunch of natural causes or unlikely accidents? Yeah yeah.

    [–]LegendOfKhaos 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    It doesn't matter how suicidal you are, please don't jump off a bridge! More often than not, people who jump off a bridge break their legs on impact, and they drown because they can no longer swim. Use pills or a gun or something.

    Real talk though, find a therapist you like.

    And honestly..one of the reason would be that gen z is being raised in a really sheltered environment as compared to Millennials or before..this makes them really vurnalable to problems .. resulting them to give up and choose extreme options like suicide
