"Kurt Cobain & Crashing Planes" A candid discussion on suicide and fear of small plane crashes.

"Kurt Cobain & Crashing Planes"  A candid discussion on suicide and fear of small plane crashes.

Maria, a younger millennial asks what it was like to hear about the death of Kurt Cobain from a Gen-Xer than in his teens and an older millennial then 10 yrs old. It was an interesting question because it was both guys’ first time really being encountered with suicide. (Yes, we are aware of the potential murder scenario but at the time suicide was the predominant theory).

Both guys remembered when they heard it, remembered the impact that the music and the videos had on them at the time, and drew some parallels between themselves and their peers.

Conversation, of course, moves on to Cessnas and other small aircraft. Eric can understand the desire to fly these, not the willingness to be a passenger. A horrible idea and has previously and will continue to refuse all opportunities to be one. And you should too.
