• 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.

What kind of rope should you use to hang yourself?

Classic style: Manila hemp rope. In executions this is prepared especially by boiling and/or stretching to remove elasticity and tendency to coil.

Alternatively: Synthetic fiber rope. Allows a smaller diameter to be used to handle the same amount of weight and have a lower amount of give to them. However, there is then a greater "risk" (or possibility) of decapitation if you're attempting a long drop hanging to break your neck. You might then not be able to use the state execution drop tables.

If you can't get hold of a rope, people have also hanged themselves especially in partial suspension with electric cables, towels and so on.

In hangings with no or little drop, I can imagine the type of rope having little importance?

One user with experience on hanging had suggested to me that I use static climbing rope, that is rope that isn't designed to stretch.
