• 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.

Well, according to multiple sources, something not too big, not too small. Most recommend .75 - 1.25 inches in diameter and static. What’s the difference between static (non-stretch) and dynamic (stretch)? The likelihood that your long drop will be successful.

I didn’t want to have to wet, stretch, and then dry the rope as described in the army corps execution manual. I went searching for something that would work without all the fuss. After searching for a while, I found my solution — a 16mm static rope from Sterling. And better yet, I could buy a “leftover” piece rather than the long lengths usually needed.

I purchased a 10-15m rope (mine was about 40’ long when it arrived). It was just what I needed — long enough, but not too long. Thick enough, but not too thick.

If you are interested, here’s the link:
