This weekend I've been grading exams (this is for rent-money -- I'm not teaching the class). For all y'all academic types, next time you're stuck grading, think of me, spending the entire weekend wading through mind-numbingly dull undergraduate musings on suicide, and take consolation in knowing you could have it worse.

I just finished reading an answer which said that Kant's position on suicide was suspiciously convenient in how closely it fit his doctrine of the categorical imperative. The answer left it a bit unclear what Kant should have done differently. I suppose he could have done something like Hume's missing shade of blue....
