If it's my best friend and someone close to me, I would totally do this. Sitting there eating my lunch pretending nothing is happening.



Jokes aside.

Honestly, I just be next to them on the ledge of the building sitting there and just lecture them. Not try to make them stop, but more of play with the words and make them think about it if what they're doing is right at the same time bluntly say, "But I'm not going to stop you from jumping. Honestly it's your life, not mine."

Or, like your mom always said, would you jump off too?

I would definitely save him/her. Talking might not work, and since I am a small person, I would probably not be able to pull them off of the edge. I would probably end up grabbing their arm and tell them that if they jump, they will be bringing me with them. That should stop most sane people from jumping...hopefully...

Can I have your Xbox?

OR

Hey man, don't do this. You have a lot of potential. If you jump, that's all gonna get converted into kinetic...

I'd just remind him that he can't be serious about leaving those little kids with his crazy wife.

If they were determined there's not much I could do because they could wait till I'm not around.
But I'd debate with them and if they were someone I cared about, help them with what ever they're so worked up about.

Of course, the better option would be to save her. Though I would probably try to at least anybody out of suicide, if it was my best friend I would save her by force, even if I had to beat her ass to snap her out of it.

I would most likely pull their ass off the ledge and punch them. I usually not a violent person but in that case, they would need it. then I would most likely drag them down the stairs and we'll have a nice long chat

If their mind is set on something, who am I to stop them.

Well people come to me with their problems all the time even though i'm not particularly close with anyone -.-

I'm not the type to get stressed over people. Maybe i'd ask from the bottom of the building if they want me to come up there to stop them lol.

I'd call the cops and maybe some doctors and i'd tell him that they're coming to save him and help him remember good stuff so that he's at least feeling good whether he goes ahead with it or not.

If he changes his mind i'd take him bungee jumping lol.

I don't see what's so wrong about dying, i've lost a lot of people to death including my parents.

I'd prolly try to stop them, bestfriend or not. As long as I tried and if they still went with it, then it was still their choice and my opinions didn't have any effect on them.

Spiderman crawl up the walls, grab them just as the building explodes, swing on the rope and bring them to safety, and kiss the girls who have acrued at the bottom.

Then pull out a radio and put this on -- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UiuCk6_yEPw
