Apparently his wife was a pain in the neck...

Quote
A businessman decapitated himself in his sports car to get back at his younger wife for leaving him, an inquest has heard.
Gerald Mellin, 54, taunted his estranged wife Mirrielle, 33, with threats of suicide.
He even showed her the rope he was going to use, which he kept in the boot of his open-top Aston Martin DB7.
The court heard that the day before his death Mrs Mellin had been awarded an extra 100 a week in maintenance from her former husband.
Mr Mellin had then sent her a text message which read: 'Congratulations XXX.'
It was the last time she heard from him.
The businessman tied one end of the rope to a tree, then climbed into his Aston Martin and wrapped the other end around his neck.
He then drove the 90,000 car into a busy main road, forcing other drivers to watch his horrific death. Yesterday Mrs Millen, a mother of two, told the inquest: 'We had split up and been to court.

Quite sad actually.

I am sure we have all been through bad times at some point in our lives,  but, to make that decision must be difficult.

Some have said selfish.

At least in Australia when they report of such an event whether on TV or in the press, they always give the contact numbers for lifeline and other support agencies.

One word... Spite.

Most of us can get by without it, but I've seen people completely consumed by it, it's not really the "standard" depression, just ugly.

I believe the FCA rally is in QLD next year.  Thats my target and I think it is achievable.

Won't make my anniversary at the end of this year.  I don't think it will be back friom the beater by then.
