Reformed heroin addict? But, still quaffed and scarfed wine and booze as part of his required food identity?

Chalk this one up to addictive death by occupational hazard.

Humans are weird creatures indeed. It would be unimaginable for a dog who has enough food, water, toys to chew, bitches to screw, squirrels to chase, sofas to lie on and fire hydrants to piss on to go ahead and kill himself. But here we are... Antony-fucking-Bourdain who looked like a happiest guy on Earth with a dream job to boot. Damn.

Life is pain. Consciousness can be a real burden. If people don’t have either purpose or meaning in their pain, it becomes intolerable. Drugs and alcohol can only haze it out temporarily. It’s a wonder more people don’t suicide in this nihilistic world the Leftists are pushing on everyone!

You MUST have meaning or life becomes unbearable.

You know my suicide policy? Fuck Him!
He had all that and he couldn't deal? Same with the Spade gal yesterday.
I save my empathy for those living and struggling against the oppressive NWO Establishment and Commies everywhere.
He was probably whacking off anyway, it's just more popular to say he hung himself. They wont mention the soiled undies over his head.

Yeah material stuff is good, doing anything you want is good-upto a point. Then you need something, reality to hold on to.

So, he got paid to be a flamboyant, mouthy, appetite driven drunken ASSHOLE in public media for 15 years for all the wannabe drunken ASSHOLES in the audience.

I doubt he ever stopped chipping at narcotics/coke. His skel lack of body fat in spite of being bright red from drinking and eating whatever he wanted points to it.

Narcotics melt fat from the body in most users like nothing else outside of nicotine, coke, speed or anabolic steroids.

"His love of great adventure, new friends, fine food and drink and the remarkable stories of the world made him a unique storyteller," the network said in a statement.

A perfect description of Hemingway who committed suicide at the same age in 1961.

That's what happens when your job is professionally enjoying your life. There is no separation from living your life. Or is it as fulfilling as getting paid to show others how to live high on the Hogg pun intended.

Watching him on his shows he gave the impression of a comedian. These people are "laughing on the outside and crying on the inside."

He was clever and sarcastic which at first made his shows fun to watch. I liked "no reservations." His later stuff I liked less.

An odd thing I noticed on one show he made in NYC; he ate hot dogs in 2 places. Later on an episode he was in San Francisco and I think he ate a hot dog there also. Why would a foodie be so happy eating hot dogs?

I'll never understand why a successful person with money doesn't take things easy.

Probably nobody will know the 'true' story. Auto erotic asphyxiation? Cancer diagnosis? Dementia? Drug cocktails?

People around him are likely more interested in protecting the brand name.

IIRC, Hemingway had terminal cancer and decided it would be better to simply shoot himself than suffer another few months and die anyway.

2010: "“And eating vegan has opened me up to all the suffering I have caused by my insatiable thirst for the most torturous foods. I regret every bite of foie gras, and every veal cutlet. But also, I see the suffering in every egg and every glass of milk,” he confessed. “I still smoke five packs a day, but just removing animal products from my diet has stopped my cancer cold. I really don’t know what else to say. I’m going to live,” Bourdain added.

To which a bloodthirsty crowd responded with loud boos and hissing, with some members of the angry mob yelling things such as “faggot”, “hippie”, “pussy”, and “elitist”, and some threatening to eat Bourdain himself. How long will the show last? Time will tell, but does anyone really want to see someone travel around the world and eat vegetables? Our guess is, as far as the general public is concerned, if it doesn’t involve ramming a tube down a goose’s throat, it’s not worth watching someone eat it."

Yeah, the five packs a day and booze couldn't have had anything to do with it. It was the MEAT. This man was such an oracle.

Phlegmatic Bourdain butters up New Yorker SJW (IHL??) food author to become lionized in death! He knew THE TRUTH!

"At the bar, where I’d just picked up my drink, he came up and clapped me on the shoulder. “Remember when you asked me if I was a feminist, and I was afraid to say yes?” he said, in that growling, companionable voice. “Write this down: I’m a fuckin’ feminist.”"

Alas the New Yorker! It has become a Radcliffe Sophomore Strident Liberal Wet Dream rag! Will it ever grow up again?

Couldn't have been a combination of going back to drugs and or depression huh ? Money is not the end all and definitely not a guarantee of happiness or inner peace.

It being consumed by "hate" was a primary driver - Potus would have done himself in years ago.

Why predicting suicide is a difficult and complex challenge

Who is going to die by suicide? This terrible mystery of human behavior takes on particular poignance in the wake of suicides by high-profile and much-beloved celebrities Kate Spade and Anthony Bourdain. It is only natural that people want to know why such tragedies occur. Those closest to those who take their lives are often tormented, wondering if there is something they could have – or should have – known to prevent their loved one’s suicide.

As a scientist who has focused on this question for the past decade, I should have a pretty good idea of who is and isn’t going to die by suicide. But the sad truth is, I don’t. The sadder truth is, neither do any other suicide experts, psychiatrists or physicians. The sum of the research on suicide shows that it does not matter how long we’ve known someone or how much we know about them. In my research, my colleagues and I have shown that we can only predict who is going to die by suicide slightly more accurately than random guessing.

The need for answers

The fact that suicide is so hard to predict unfortunately took about 50 years for most scientists to appreciate. About the same time that this recognition became widespread a few years ago, a new hope emerged: a form of artificial intelligence called machine learning. As several research groups have demonstrated in recent years, machine learning may be able to predict who is going to attempt or die by suicide with up to 90 percent accuracy.

To understand why this is, and why we humans won’t ever be able to accurately predict suicide on our own, one needs to take a step back and understand a little more about the nature of human cognition, suicide and machine learning.

As humans, we love explanations that have two qualities. First, explanations should be simple, meaning that they involve one or a small number of things. For example, depression is a simple explanation for suicide.

Second, explanations should be determinate, meaning that there is one set explanation that accounts for all or most of something. For example, the idea that depression causes most suicides is a determinate explanation. This simple and determinate explanatory style is highly intuitive and very efficient. It’s great for helping us to survive, procreate, and get through our days.

But this style of thinking is terrible for helping us understand nature. This is because nature is not simple and determinate
