Suicide Rates

From Japanprobe, which got it wrong. Japan doesn't have the highest, but the third highest. One of the more surreal moments of living in Japan is hearing an announcement at the station that the train is late because someone jumped in front of it. One night I even saw legs sticking out from a body bag.

I always chalked it up to a religious difference - in Christianity suicide is wrong, whereas Buddhism doesn't seem to be as strict.

That doesn't explain why Finland and Hungary at the top... and Luxembourg?
