no suicide help line wants my help because ...
They don't want your help because in a moment of great crisis, nobody should be on the phone with a man who spends five minutes congratulating them for contacting the greatest philosopher ever and then fucks off to buy himself a hat with the word genius written on it in sequins.

All misdirected hostility aside, all I said was that, if I were in charge of a help-line, which of course I'm not, I wouldn't want to be responsible for a narcissist dealing with emotionally fragile people. That's still true. Not surprisingly, I haven't had any complaints from the dead people I didn't prevent suiciding. Which goes to prove.
