I'm sorry to hear this. I did not interact with him too much, but saw his post several times when I was just lurking.

RIP, Oed.......................................

Jesus.

Not sure how I missed this thread.

Hard to know what to say other than Tex must have been quite a character to know in real life. He certainly was here.

We have some pretty smart people skulking around but, he seemed exceptionally bright to me. I found his intellect intimidating at times.

I am really sorry that whatever was eating him got so bad that he took his own life. I have to wonder how much the horror of what he experienced in Thailand might have contributed, but really don't have any idea. This is very sad news.

Happy Trails, Tex.

I wish his family and friends strength and peace in what must be a very dark time for them.

I was thinking more, when I saw his age, how the kinds of stress his job must have would affect someone so young. From listening to some of his descriptions, it must have been incredibly intense.

He didn't post much after I joined, but it was clearly evident that he posts were a definite read.

I took the opportunity to read some of his old stuff and it apparent that the Planet has lost a friend.......

It is times like this I wish I could express what Iím feeling/thinking in words.

I didnít know the man only his screen persona from the archives, I think it is things like this that teach us how much others influence our lives and the effect people have on us.

For his family, friends and the planeteers who did, I offer up my condolences, for the rest of us, I hope we find a few laughs looking back in the archives at the life and times of Oedipus Tex

He left this world to young.

If he was born in 1978, we would have turned 27. Regardless of his age, this is horrible news.

RIP, Oedipus.

This is crushing news. My condolensces go out to his family. I am truly saddened by this tragic news.

However, and I know I'll probably be chastized for saying this, but I have a real problem with honoring someone who takes their own life. This may not be the time nor the place to express these views. But I thought that we should all take a step back and think about what Tex's actions have done to his family and close friends. Again, this is awkward but it's the way I feel. I'm angry.

It sounds a little wierd but Tex didn't really have a choice in this. At least not in the same you you or I would.

The kind of depression flagg described is caused by chemical imbalances in the brain. Tex wasn't weak or selfish, he was terribly ill.
