Suicide (Latin suicidium, from sui caedere, to kill oneself) is the act of terminating one's own life.

A murder-suicide is an act in which an individual kills one or more other persons immediately before, at the same time as, or after killing him or herself.

The combination of murder and suicide can take various forms, including:

* Suicide to facilitate murder, as in suicide bombing
* Suicide after murder to escape punishment
* Suicide after murder as a form of self-punishment due to guilt
* Having a combined objective of suicide and murder
* Considering one's suicide as the main act, but murdering one's children first, to avoid them becoming orphans, to be together in an expected afterlife, in the context of severe depression where the person feels he is sparing his loved ones from a horrible life, or simply just to experience the act
* Joint suicide in the form of killing the other with consent, and then killing oneself
* Punishment - taking revenge on those deemed responsible and escaping the world seen as a terrible place, as in many school shootings
* Some cases of cult suicide may also involve murder. Conversely, many spree killings have ended in suicide.

The motivation for the murder in murder-suicide can be purely criminal in nature or be perceived by the perpetrator as an act of care for loved ones in the context of severe depression. The severely depressed person may see the world as a terrible place and can feel that they are helping those they care about by removing them from it. Thoughts like this are generally regarded as a medical emergency requiring suicide intervention.

Since crime just prior to suicide is often perceived as being without consequences, it is not uncommon for suicide to be linked with homicide. Motivations may range from guilt to evading punishment, insanity, part of a suicide pact, or exacting revenge on those whom they feel are responsible.

A famous example of murder-suicide is the double murder-suicide of professional wrestler Chris Benoit, who was found hanging in his home along with the bodies of his wife and son.

And these days teenagers and people who freaking fail in love they love commiting suicide !! They should know that if they find love it doesn't mean that its the end... LIFE IS TOO LONG AND PRECIOUS TO WASTE IT LIKE THIS !!

*shocked* @ "1 suicide occurs every 36 seconds"

Hey Ubaid... do please work on your blog theme a bit... At least, the comment page should be with the original post...

I mean I can't open multiple tabs... because there's no way (as far as I know) I can tell that which comments' page is for which post :$

And I've to comment at your posts one by one... That's slow ):


yeah it is indeed shocking !!

and yeah i know by what you mean .... and i understand your problem... but if you click on the center scroll button of your mouse if you using firefox or netscape... it will open in new tab... but yes you'll not know which one's for which .... hmm this is a problem indeed.... but if i use the other technique of commenting that would like not go with the looks !! hmmmm ok let me think about this problem !!

Hehe... I didn't mean that I can't open multiple tabs :P I do know how to do that (:

It's just that when you wish to comment, you can open only comments' page... because if you'll open more... you won't be able to tell which one is for which... So, you gotta open one by one...and that takes a lot of time ):

ok got what you saying :D !! i am getting irritated with that too ... anyways its fixed now :D !!

lol... thanks for that :P :P
