• Hey Visitor,

    In light of recent events, all community members in the US should reach out to their representative in regards to the Stop Online Suicide Assistance Forums Act that has been introduced in congress. This bill, if passed, could criminalize this community and hold it liable for simply hosting information.

    You should be able to locate and contact your represenative by going to this website. You can also contact Lori Trahan, the one spearheading this bill by calling her office at (202) 225-3411 or by leaving a message on the contact form on her site.

    One of the best ways to combat this is to make your voice heard. We're not political activists, but we made this notice to let you know that you do have a voice and that you do have representives that represent you in congress.

Heard somewhere that there was a cheap way of filtering out mercaptans from natural gas which gives it that rotten egg/sulphury smell. Since I'm also getting desperate by the day (drank 1 litre of antifreeze and nothing happened), I was wondering if I could fill my living room with gas and oxgen, then light a spark.

Would this be painful? I assume if you get enough gas and ''pack it tightly in the room'', the energy produced in the combustion would be equivalent of a homemade bomb and instead of burning alive, the explosion would cause you to go unconscious instantly.

Not feasible whatsoever. Very contrived and frankly downright silly. I don't doubt your anguish and desire to end things, but desperation does tend to produce poor thinking.

To put it mildly, there's no guarantee that it would not be extremely painful. And obviously, no guarantee that you would even be killed. There's no way to do something like this in a "controlled" way in a living room, and no way to do it in a "controlled" way without being an expert.

Also, this method puts other people's lives and health at risk, which is obviously not acceptable.

Hanging is the surest and most effective method that is available to literally anyone who has the use of their limbs and is not currently locked in a padded cell.

Maybe go the way of the suicide helmet if you want something explosive. I think thats how death_is_freedom_ from the sanctioned suicide subreddit went out, probably quite a nice end. Not sure how it worked really but it didn’t look too elaborate in the picture.

I used to work in a burn OR, and you don't want to fuck around with fire. If you survive, having burns of any kind is fucking hell. Don't risk it.
