• 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.

How painful would it be to ctb by hanging full suspension. I always think about kicking the bucket, which would take a lot of nerve. So would jumping.

If you do it right, it shouldn't be painful. That said, pain is temporary. I wouldn't worry too much about it.

Long drop (5-10 foot fall depending on weight + height) is instantaneous loss of awareness because it breaks your spinal cord. Short drop (under 5 foot fall) can be as quick as 10 seconds of conscious choking and panic. However in the worse case scenario the arteries are not cut off sufficiently and it could be 5-10 minutes of consciousness before you pass out. During that time you'd feel alot of pain like the rope digging in to your neck, windpipe crushing, pressure in your head + eyes, choking etc. I guess if you're successful the pain would be temporary but those last few seconds/minutes would be excruciating.
