What, no bats in the game? You gotta have bats!
I love the comedy effect jump cuts!
Oh noes, stuck in an infinite loop.
Inability to control her emotions? I feel like we’ve watched different shows. She was overly defensive, yes at times overly aggressive, but obviously kept holding back tears, and certainly wasn’t unbalanced by her emotions at any point, unless you count the overall picture being so horribly misbalanced.
That to me was precisely so weird about it: until almost the end she seemed able to brush off Ramsay’s attacks as unwarranted, whereas what I’d perceive as a normal person would have had their armor pierced long ago in face of all the evidence, leading perhaps to actual momentary loss of self control (crying, shouting, leaving or smth) and possibly even towards accepting some of Ramsay’s advice. But for her, to me it seemed, protecting her absurdly flawless self-image was quite enough to keep her emotions mostly under check, hence the bizarre effect.
I wonder about the (apparently Wikipedia-derived) ”can endure” part, what does it mean? That be it any worse and you’d lose consciousness? Surely you can’t die from pain alone?
That’s some quality ink/paper they used back then, none of that ”invisible by tomorrow” thermal hokum.
This one was way ahead of its time. In fact the world still has to catch up for this to make sense.

Can’t say what’d be the why for you, just what it is for me. My top three reasons (and the only ones I can think of off the top of my head) not to are:
1) Not wanting to bring the hurt on those who care about me (I know after I’m gone it won’t matter to me, but until then it does)
2) Fear of physical pain in the process and of the possibility of failure in the attempt
3) That I believe life truly is random which, though most of the time painful, also means I can’t know the future. By chance, they might come up with Awesome New Working Happiness Drug/Therapy tomorrow, and had I killed myself today, I’d miss trying it. Or I might save someone’s life; someone who does value theirs. Would’ve made it worth it I struggled until then, and I’m still as free to end it after that.
Only #1 would alone suffice, #2 and #3 I use just to supplement it. If I didn’t have anyone who mattered to me (and vice versa), #2 and #3 even put together probably wouldn’t keep me here.
+1 for the hillbillyness, mentally we’re the backwater country in these parts. Also, especially the men here seem to carry this bizarre idealized nationalist image of their home country, usually tied to our wars with the Soviets (nowadays touted using image macros on the Internet), and this overhyped ”we’re so badass we can take on any foe and come out on top” picture of the Finnish übersoldier of both literal and figurative sense. So you’ll be hard-pressed to find a Finn admitting he can’t take the cold: it’d go twice against his self-image sustaining beliefs (that there’s something bad about his country, and that he can’t cope with it).
Thankfully this isn’t perfectly mirrored in our politics, but even in parliament there are forces with an apparent longing for their idealized simpler post-war times, directly appealing to the nationalist common folk I described.
It’s not all that bad, but I think this is the insider’s view which, while not exactly a secret per se, perhaps isn’t as visible from the outside (and on the inside it’s so ubiquitous it usually goes without mention). Our international politics are perhaps most atypical for the common Finn; I think our international representatives are good in mostly not conveying this inwards-turned, nationalist side of us, and still showing pride in Finnish achievements that matter in the modern world (mentioned by others commenting here).
