Failure To Grok

I keep reading about unemployed people "giving up" looking for work; Instapundit links to yet another example here, full story from Yahoo! News here.

What the fuck? How does any grown person give up looking for a means to keep feeding him/her self short of seppuku? You'd think that some of those reported 244,000 "added jobs" Yahoo! mentions would have been filled by some of those people previously filing unemployment claims, but the story makes no mention of any of that;
Others have probably just given up looking for work.

So where did they physically go? I understand they no longer exist as part of the "labor force", but does that mean they get physically deleted too?

It's a modern quandary ...
