BOSTON: A 35-year-old man, who shot himself near Harvard University here a week ago, has left behind a 1905-page suicide note, an online document he had been working on for the last five years.

shot himself at Harvard Yard on September 18.

His family and about 400 friends received the 1,905-page suicide note in a posthumous e-mail.

In the note Heisman wrote that he took his life as part of a philosophical exploration he called "an experiment in nihilism."

The lengthy document included 1,433 footnotes, a 20-page bibliography, over 1,700 references to God and 200 references to the German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche.

Heisman wrote, "Every word, every thought and every emotion come back to one core problem: life is meaningless... The experiment in nihilism is to seek out and expose every illusion and every myth, wherever it may lead, no matter what, even if it kills us."

"If life is truly meaningless and there is no rational basis for choosing among fundamental alternatives, then all choices are equal and there is no fundamental ground for choosing life over death," he wrote.

He quoted former US President Thomas Jefferson and Albert Einstein in the lengthy document.

The New Jersey native, who had studied psychology in college, had told his family and friends he was working on "a history of the Norman conquest of England."

The chapters in the document are titled 'Philosophy, Cosmology, Singularity, New Jersey' and 'How to Breed a God.'

Heisman's friends said he bought the gun, a .38-caliber pistol, three years ago.

They described him as being "cordial, considerate and quiet."

Heisman, a Jew, committed suicide in Harvard yard in front of a group of tourists, on the day of Yom Kippur, considered one of the holiest days in Jewish faith.

I use Audacious when I'm on Linux. I hear many people use older versions of Winamp, maybe you could do that? I never noticed that WinAmp is bloated (I run the latest version), I didn't install the video stuff etc.

I can quite understand that sentiment, as Obama ridiculed fundamental parts of the Bible in public.

@Caffeine: Did you misquote? I'm not in the US.

I agree with deadlite said though, just pointing out that's how their ideologies should be.

You're one hell of a teenager then. This topic has been quite interesting.

Yeah, they older articles are links I've bookmarked, I posted a few more recent articles too. I also got edit rights for the FAQ, so I'm gonna work on that later. I've added a few rules that state one needs to be civil and should not submit "crap." I'm looking for interesting older articles too I don't think it would bother readers much, unless it clogs up the list and makes it harder to find other stuff.

I see the practical limitations to Reddit's systems, although the submissions are saved--not deleted. I (and other moderators) could link noteworthy submissions/comments in a submission or add them to the FAQ (under a subheader that's proper for it). So as long as one or a group of people spends time collecting, I and other moderators could add them.

I created /r/TrueMetal, which is intended to be a place of higher quality than /r/Metal, which is usually a cesspool mixed with good links. I'm in the process of obtaining rights to maintain an on-site FAQ, which I intend to use to stipulate rules.

For those who don't know what Reddit is, it's a place where you can submit links to "subreddits", which are an organic list of links with comment threads attached to them. It's a democratic system where people can "upvote and "downvote" link submissions and comments. It's a very popular and active site, so it's filled with idiots. The most popular "subreddits" (places) are crap (good trolling material though), but I like /r/new_right and /r/ClassicMetal.

This new subreddit is intended for people who want to share, comment and/or read interesting material related to Heavy Metal. So if you are interested in that, please take a look.

Reddit.com continues trolling itself. Like a commentator of that thread pointed out, it's mostly hipsters who visit. The moderator there banned me for no reason and then laughed about it. I'm thinking about getting an alternative account and submitting some crap, as all metal is equal.

There's http://news.freespeechproject.com/ which redirects to reddit.com/r/new_right, it functions as a impermanent list of articles relating to the New Right, which contains articles and topics regularly touched upon in the Chasm forum. You  can submit links or submit "selfposts". Conservationist participates and moderates there under the nick mayonesa and I think the other moderators are also member of this forum.

It has the tree-style comment threading talked about in the earlier topic (linked in the previous post above) about bbs.anus.com. Be warned that most of the other "subreddits" (as they're called) are cesspools. Might also be of interest to participate in the Metal subreddit (reddit.com/r/metal); it regularly has crap but things Conservationist submits and other good articles are listed on the frontpage for quite a while so you reach out to at least a few hundred people.

It handicaps inhibition, or in other words: "Makes you looser". I'd say a few beers help improve it but anything after that makes you just act freaky.

It has a listening of fanzines: http://www.wikimetal.info/wiki/Category:Fanzines

Sparse information in English about bands, but the pages about Death and Pestilence do have some what descriptive information about the bands in French. The English pages has information about the date and place of formation, a track listening of officially released albums (with length of songs) and the date/label of release.

The wiki started as a french project, and we are currently moving on to the english language so that more people can read, gather and contribute. So please be patient in the meantime! Lots of french pages can still appear here and there, and everything might not be fully set up yet, but it's a big work and we're only a few to handle it (until now)...

The idea is quite simple: gather all information related to metal. Bands, artists, labels, fanzines, etc. Everything that is making the metal underground culture alive.
The wiki was first created as a french-language based project only. But after 3 years of existence, we decided to move it to english language, so that anyone in the world can more easily read and edit the pages.

The wiki has been active, although the only recent changes were done by a "team" member. There are only two of those. I can vaguely recall their being a Hessian wiki, so for the people interested here. The wiki's content is released under the GNU Free Documentation License.

Those are some great interviews, aside from the spelling and grammar.

Masturbathon is now one of my favorite words. Hah.

Perhaps, with the way society is going, this wont be an unfeasible public event.
