Seriously though, if you really want to kill yourself, is it that hard?
I mean, I can think of at least 10 sure-fire ways to do it of the top
of my head. In my opinion, all this talk by supposedly suicidal people
is more of a cry for help. If they really wanted to kill themselves
and have made up their mind, they wouldn't be here anymore to ask.
i'll second that. when you really, really want out, everything starts
turning into a means to off yourself. it's like a sick little parlor game
-- walk into a room, and see how many ways you could end it. there's a
comfort to knowing you've got that escape route, when it seems like
there're no others and will never be.
which isn't to say it's a good idea to go for it, unless you're really
totally sure you want to and you can follow through properly. and remember,
someone's going to have to find your corpse -- do you want a loved one
walking in the door one day to see your brain on the wall? your blue,
lifeless body, stewing in its own shit + piss? it's an awfully big "fuck
you" to give anyone, but especially someone you care about.
anyone remember the judas priest suicides? satanic backwards subliminal
messages in heavy metal songs made two fuckups decide to off themselves
with a shotgun. one did it. one *missed* and survived, less a face. he
spent a couple of years scaring little kids before he tried again to kill
himself, successfully. i've come to in the icu twice before with all sorts
of pipes and tubes sticking out of my body not having expected to come to
again, and it's not a nice feeling, that realization. one of the times i
had fulminant liver damage/failure. that hurt. bad. but i still had my
face, fer chrissake.
but anyways, the people talking about killing themselves on usenet are not
the ones actually killing themselves in real life.

salt and pepper to season, half cup of milk, three-fourths pound of brains.
Parboil the brains. When cool, salt to taste and chop in small pieces. Cook
flour and butter in double boiler; add milk and beaten egg yolk and stir
slowly into butter and flour, add seasoning and brains. Cook about three
minutes and serve on toast."
