RIP Anthony Bourdain
https://jezebel.com/anthony-bourdain-che...1525232504

Farewell to a gifted chef, writer, and travel host. His documentaries about faraway lands and cities never failed to introduce viewers to interesting and relevant facts, and he made his visits all the more meaningful by adding the element of local human interest. This geography/food nerd will miss him dearly.

RIP

I'm not anti-social; I'm just not user friendly.

Travelling a lot, as he did, and constantly having to adjust quickly to new time zones due to tight work schedules, can bring on severe bouts of depression. For someone with a predisposition towards depression that can be a bad combination, all alone in a hotel room and a long way from support. Particularly when you're a professional entertainer and you know how to pretend that everything is okay.

I loved his shows. It is very sad.

Interesting observation about the connection between depression and extensive travel. Never thought about it that way, but it makes sense.

It's a shame what happened to Bourdain; my heart goes out to his family and friends. Hopefully we as a society will use high-profile celebrity suicides like his as a reason to start discussing the subject of suicide in a more understanding and compassionate manner.
