The Rich People Next Door Will Make You Want To Die

“The more money your neighbors make, the more likely you are to take your own life. These findings come from a new paper published at the San Francisco Federal Reserve titled ‘Relative Status and Well-Being: Evidence from U.S. Suicide Deaths.’ According to the results, your risk of suicide increases by 4.5 percent if your own paycheck is less than 10 percent of your county’s average income.”
—Also there is this: “Moving on up to the West Side could mean you’re increasing your risk of suicide,” which makes me want to end it all in and of itself. Anyway, it’s a rough, rough world out there. Good luck.
