    Cutting your wrists would hurt way too much.
    Park your car in the garage and leave it running, that's a much less painful way.

    I dont get it its a parked car?

    And found on google:

    1. POISON
    [1] makes most of these points:
    *Most drugs cause vomiting. To help stop this, take one or two anti-
    histamine tablets (travel sickness, allergy, hayfever tablets etc) about
    an hour before, on a fairly empty stomach.
    *If the drugs are in tablet form, take the first 20% as they are, and the
    rest crushed and dissolved / mixed in with strong alcohol / food. This
    helps the drugs to hit at the same time.
    *Alcohol helps dissolve the drugs. Don't drink any beforehand, but wash the
    tablets down with vodka or similar, and then drink afterwards while you're
    still conscious.
    *Use a large airtight plastic bag over your head, + something around your
    neck to hold it on. This transforms a 90% certainty method into a 99%...
    *Friday night is a good time if you life alone - nobody will miss you until
    Monday if you work. Bolt all the doors you can. Say you'll be out over the
    weekend visiting someone, so people don't expect a reply to telephone.
    *Some painkillers etc have less effect if you use them normally (tolerance).
    *In general, you need to stay away from medical help until you actually die,
    but there are exceptions to this (that have been pointed out in the text).

    Common drugs:

    Cyanide (HCN, KCN)
    Dosage: 50 mg Hydrogen Cyanide gas, 200-300 mg Cyanide salts
    Time: seconds for HC, minutes Cs (empty stomach) hours (full s)
    Available: very difficult to get hold of
    Certainty: very certain
    Notes: It helps to have an empty stomach (since the salts react
    with the stomach acids to form H.C.). A full stomach can delay death
    for up to four hours with the salts. Antidotes to cyanide poisoning
    exist, but they have serious side effects. What you can do, is instead
    of taking the salts directly, drop 500mg or so into a strong acid,
    and inhale the fumes. This will be pure Hydrogen Cyanide, and you
    should die in 10 to 20 seconds.
    "Hydrocyanic acid is one of the most poisonous substances known; the
    inhalation of its fumes in high concentration will cause almost
    immediate death. Hydrogen cyanide acts by preventing the normal
    process of tissue oxidation and paralyzing the respiratory center in
    the brain. Most of the accidental cases are due to inhaling the fumes
    during a fumigating process. In the pure state it kills with great
    rapidity. Crystalline cyanides, such as potassium or sodium cyanide
    are equally poisonous, since they interact with the hydrochloric acid
    in the stomach to liberate hydrocyanic acid. This poison has been used
    for both homicide and suicide; in recent history, a number of European
    political figures carried vials of cyanide salt for emergency
    self-destruction and some used them. Death resulted from amounts of
    only a fraction of a gram. A concentration of 1 part in 500 of
    hydrogen cyanide gas is fatal. Allowable working concentration in most
    of the United States is 20 ppm. Two and one-half grains of liquid acid
    has killed. The acid acts fatally in about 15 minutes. The cyanide
    salts kill in several hours. The average dose of solution is 0.1 cc.
    [1], DGHS talking about KCN]:
    on an empty stomach, take a small glass of cold tap water. (Not
    mineral water nor any sort of juice or soda water because of it's
    acidity). Stir 1 -> 1.5 grammes of KCN into the water. More than that
    causes irritation to the throat. Wait 5 minutes to dissolve. It should
    be drunk within several hours. Consciousness will be lost in about a
    minute. Death will follow 15 -> 45 minutes later.

    Aspirin (acetylsalicylic acid)
    Dosage: 20-30+ grammes (too many cause vomitting)
    Time: hours to days, variable
    Available: easy to get hold of (get soluble ones, & dissolve them)
    Certainty: unreliable
    Notes: Not recommended, fatal dose varies wildly, could cause liver
    & kidney damage instead of death. OD causes strange noises in your
    ears (like a video arcade) & projectile vomiting after about 10 hours.
    Medical help generally effective, so stay out of hospital for a couple
    of days. May cause bleeding in your stomach/upper intestines. Take
    with sodium bicarbinate (eg, bicarb. of soda), which speeds up the
    absorption (sp?) significantly. Take 1 or 2 antihistamine tablets.

    Paracetamol (aka acetaminopren / tylenol)
    Dosage: 15+ grammes, 20+ is better
    Time: 10 hours fatal damage, but 2 weeks to actually die
    Available: easy to get hold of
    Certainty: fairly reliable
    Notes: Once 10-12 hours is up, you've had it, but you still live for
    a week or two after that. Probably better to wait 15 hours just to
    make sure. Horrible side effects during this time (some of which are:
    acute toxic hepatitis, renal failure, cerebral oedema, intra-abdominal
    bleeding, aspiration pneumonia, haemophilia). Too small dose causes
    severe liver damage. Accidental deaths are very common. There are few
    if any side effects before the damage becomes fatal; occasionally
    vomitting and nausea.

    Sleeping tablets (see specific notes for each kind)
    * See later entries for amobarbital, butabarbital, diazepam, flurazepam,
    glutethimide, chloral hydrate, hydromorphone, meprobamate, methyprylon,
    meperidine (pethidine), methadone, morphine, orphenadrine,
    phenobarbital [also check trade names in same entries].

    Alcohol (spirits preferably, your choice)
    Dosage: 1/2 litre vodka?, similar. Varies from person to person.
    Time: about 8 hours
    Available: good
    Certainty: unreliable
    Notes: will cause liver and kidney damage if 'rescued' before death.
    Drink it all at the same time, quickly as possible. Dosage is
    questionable, I don't have any figures. Taking the spirits as an
    enema is supposed to be a very quick way of absorbing alcohol, but a
    less unpleasant way is to inject it. The dosage it takes to kill you
    depends on whether you drink normally, the state of your liver,
    whether you pass out on your back or not.
    [3]: "The fatal dose of pure alcohol in an average adult is 300-400 mL
    (750-1000 mL of 40% alcohol) if consumed in less than one hour. Apart
    from the effects of overdosage, death after alcohol consumption can
    occur as a result of choking on vomit while unconscious. .....
    Consequences such as liver damage occur after chronic consumption."
    Alcohol helps other drugs to dissolve. Don't drink it in advance, wash
    down tablets with it, & follow by drinking another few glasses of

    Dosage: 14 litres mentioned
    Time: 12 hours or so?
    Available: always available
    Certainty: unknown
    Notes: works by washing out the salts in your body, until the cells
    fail (osmotic balance buggered up). You need to keep drinking
    continually until you collapse. Unusual method. Someone suggested it
    would also cause cramps. The following is something from [2]:
    "About a year ago a local newspaper carried a story about a
    woman who had drunk herself to death. Apparently she had ingested
    something mildly poisonous, and when she called her doctor asking him
    what to do, he told her to drink lots of water and see him in the
    morning. She got to it and managed to drink no less than 14 litres of
    water before the osmotic balance in her body was so upset it could no
    longer function and she died (don't know how quickly)".

    Calle: The above anecdote originally came from me, and the
    death described occured in V�xj�, Sweden.
    Unfortunately I no longer remember which newspaper I
    saw it in.

    Recently, I was told about a similar case in San
    Antonio. It supposedly happened a couple of years ago
    and was reported in the local San Antonio Express/News.

    Bleach and other corrosives (lye, drain cleaning fluids)
    Dosage: A bottle (litre or half litre)
    Time: Hours/days
    Available: Easily available
    Certainty: Uncertain
    Notes: Bloody painful - depends on your stomach getting corroded,
    the stomach acids escaping, and doing their dirty work in your vital
    [1] says: "I have heard of people throwing themselves through plate
    glass windows in their death agonies after drinking lye."

    Insulin (injected)
    Dosage: No idea
    Time: death in hours to days
    Available: Difficult to get hold of unless you're a diabetic or a vet
    Certainty: reasonable
    Notes: Supposed to be quite pleasant (eg insulin shock treatments
    used for some psychiatric condition).

    Petrol (in lungs/injected)
    Dosage: "A Thimble-full" -20 ml?
    Time: Seconds/minutes
    Available: Common
    Certainty: I'm not sure of the dosage, but fairly certain if correct
    Notes: Can also use LPG (propane/butane) on skin surface (since
    these are light enough to go through the skin). Stick your hand in a
    bucket of propane and see how many seconds you last...

    Oil of Wintergreen/Methyl Salicylate (in lungs/injected)
    Dosage: Probably similar to petrol (20 ml)
    Time: Don't know
    Available: Not available in concentration
    Certainty: Don't know
    Notes: Don't have enough information on this one to be able to say
    anything about it. If it is just taken normally, it is the same as

    Malathion (insecticide) (entry revised by Calle)
    Dosage: A few bottles, at least
    Time: 2 to 3 hours
    Available: From a large garden centre or DIY shop
    Certainty: not so good
    Notes: A correspondent mentions that the LD50 of this stuff
    is 1 g/kg in rats, and adds that there is not nearly
    that much in a bottle. He also mentions that it is
    treatable. Instead of this, he recommends parathion,
    if you really want to use an insecticide.

    Phosphine gas from aluminium phosphide pesticide (ALP)
    Dosage: Single 3 gramme tablet (".. is enough to kill 10 people")
    Time: About 2 hours
    Available: Difficult. Used in India, sold on black market.
    Certainty: Without medical help, and using fresh pill, very good
    Notes: This is a common way of committing suicide in Indian villages.
    There is no specific antidote to this. The pills are 3 grammes of ALP,
    which produces lethal phosphine gas when it comes in contact with
    hydrochloric acid or water in the stomach. After severe vomiting, the
    victim loses consciousness, the blood vessels rupture, and body
    cavities fill with blood. While the pill is exceedingly lethal, some
    escape death because the rate of the gas' release declines with the
    pill's age and use, and exposure to moisture. Trouble with this one
    is the availability, and it also looks like a rather unpleasant.

    Rat poison (Warfarin)
    Dosage: not known
    Time: Hours to terminal damage, days to actual death
    Available: Available
    Certainty: Certain given suffient dosage. Most probably treatable.
    Notes: This is one of the truly unpleasant poisons, along with
    Paracetamol/Acetylminopren. I think it causes cerebral haemorage (rat
    poison works by giving the unfortunate rat haemophillia). Doctors
    can't do anything about it, they just leave you to die in agony on an
    intensive care ward.

    Calle: Since human haemophiliacs usually live quite ordinary
    lives, the above sounds rather improbable.

    Dosage: 20 grammes (someone said 8 -> 10 grammes)
    Time: not known
    Available: Caffeine tablets available in Chemist shops
    Certainty: don't know
    Notes: I don't know very much about this. There isn't all that much
    caffeine in coffee, maybe 200 mg.

    Potassium Chloride (injected in solution) / KCl
    Dosage: not known (try 20cc injection of strong solution)
    Time: Seconds to minutes
    Available: Widely available
    Certainty: Certain given correct dosage
    Notes: Causes heart attack (which is painful). May be difficult
    for coroner to realise it was suicide rather than a natural heart
    attack. An excess of K+ in the blood interferes with nerve signals,
    and stops muscles and nerves from working. So when it reaches your
    heart, the heart stops.

    Nitrogen gas (or other inert gas)
    Dosage: Several litres uncompressed is minimum
    Time: Minutes
    Available: Try plumber, or welding supplies company
    Certainty: Certain
    Notes: This is really a form of asphyxiation, (see later), but is
    particularly good since you don't experience the lack of oxygen (what
    people really experience is the EXCESS of carbon dioxide).

    Nitrous oxide (N20? NO2?)
    Dosage: Unknown
    Time: Minutes
    Available: Dentists supply would be good
    Certainty: reasonable
    Notes: Asphyxiate yourself with laughing gas. Nice.

    Carbon Monoxide (CO)
    Dosage: 5% concentration or so?
    Time: Minutes to hours depending on concentration
    Available: You get it out of a car exhaust, you used to be able to use
    "town gas" (eg, stick your head in the cooker) but this is no longer
    Certainty: Fairly certain, as long as you aren't "rescued"
    Notes: Causes brain damage.

    Calle: A correspondent from Denmark, where you still can use
    "town gas" to kill yourself, says that even though it's
    possible it's not a good idea. He tells of an incident
    where a family committed suicide by turning on the gas
    and waiting. Apparently, the heavier-than-air carbon
    monoxide leaked through the floor and reached the people
    in the apartment below. Not nice.

    The actual cause of death is asphyxiation, since the
    carbon monoxide binds tighter to haemoglobine than oxygen
    does (the oxygen gets crowded out, so to speak).

    Chlorine gas
    Dosage: not known
    Time: not known
    Available: tricky
    Certainty: Good
    Notes: This was used in the first world war in the trenches.
    Probably very unpleasant, does something to the lungs.

    Dosage: As produced by reaction
    Time: Not known, fortnight?
    Available: Bottle of bleach & bottle of ammonia
    Certainty: not known
    Notes: [2]:
    "This is no joke, D----. Several years ago at my high school, one of
    the janitors innocently mixed together half a bottle of bleach with
    half a bottle of of ammonia in a small closet where the cleaning
    fluids were kept. He passed out due to the hydrazine (not chlorine)
    gas released in the reaction between the two chemicals. This man was
    in agony for two weeks in an intensive care unit in a local hospital
    with the majority of the inside surface of his lungs damaged and
    untreatable before he got lucky and died."

    Dosage: not known, just put a splash onto a rag
    Time: several minutes probably
    Available: not known
    Certainty: good
    Notes: If you tape the rag over your mouth so that you get knocked
    out, you should die as you continue getting the stuff into your lungs.

    Digitalis (Foxglove, Digitalis Purpurea)
    Dosage: not known
    Time: not known
    Available: extract from foxgloves
    Certainty: bad due to vomiting
    Notes: [4]:
    Gives you a heart-attack. Symptoms: nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain,
    diarrhoea, headache, and slow irregular pulse. Also sometimes
    trembling, convulsions, delirium, and hallucinations. Its difficult to
    take a fatal amount because vomiting usually gets rid of it.

    Yew (Taxus Baccata, the "English Yew")
    Dosage: not known
    Time: Can be very rapid (minutes), occasionally 3 or 4 days.
    Available: Grows wild in the UK, don't know about elsewhere.
    Certainty: not sure, but it sounds good if you eat enough
    Notes: [4]:
    All parts of the plant, _except_ for the fleshy red bit of the fruit,
    contain poisons. The seeds are poisonous, so if you eat the berries,
    chew them. Symptoms: nausea, abdominal pain, coma, death. The mode of
    death is a heart attack which occurs rapidly after eating sufficient.
    If no heart attack occurs, you'll probably survive. Sometimes the
    sudden collapse leading to death is preceded by lethargy, trembling,
    staggering, coldness, dilation of the pupils, rapid pulse that becomes
    weak, and convulsions. Other species in this genus are said to be
    equally poisonous. See "plants in general".

    Mezerein, Daphnetoxin (Mezereon, AKA Daphne Mezereum, AKA D. Laureola)
    Dosage: "a few". Probably 10 or more.
    Time: not known
    Available: Garden plant. Seeds are particularly poisonous.
    Certainty: not known, dosage is questionable.
    Notes: [4]:
    The berries taste horrid, but you only need to eat a few to cause
    death. Symptoms: burning sensation in mouth, nausea, vomiting, stomach
    pains, diarrhoea, weakness, disorientation, convulsions, followed by
    death. The seeds can be dried and stored without affecting the
    poisons. Don't confuse this with laurels in the Prunus genus, Rosacea
    family. See "plants in general".

    Atropine (Atropa Belladonna AKA Deadly Nightshade. Also potato fruits)
    Dosage: 5 berries in young children.. maybe 30 in adults?
    Time: 6 to 24 hours
    Available: from fruits of some plants in the potato family.
    Certainty: unknown, particularly dosage is questionable
    Notes: [4]:
    AB also contains hyoscyamine and hyoscine (scopolamine). Symptoms:
    dry mouth, flushed face, dilation of pupils, rapid pulse. Possibly
    also breathing difficulties, constipation, convulsions,
    hallucinations, and coma. AB is often confused with other Nightshade
    species, which aren't as poisonous. The berries are black in AB, and
    red in Woody Nightshade. In addition, the flowers are larger (1.2 in)
    in the true Deadly Nightshade.
    Present in unripe deadly nightshake fruits, fruits of potato, and
    fruits of other members of this family (not tomato though!), but stick
    with AB. See the "plants in general" entry.

    Calle: A correspondent mentions that Jimsonweed will also do, and
    that a specific antidote exists.

    Oleander (Nerium Oleander. Poison similar to digitalis)
    Dosage: not known, but fairly small amounts.
    Time: unknown.
    Available: leaves, wood of the plant. From garden centres.
    Certainty: unknown.
    Notes: [4]:
    Deaths have been caused by using wood from this plant in fires, and
    making tea from the leaves. In a few hours there is abdominal pain,
    nausea, vomiting, bloody diarrhoea, rapid pulse, and visual effects.
    Later, a slow, weak, irregular pulse and fall in blood pressure,
    followed by failure of heart. See the "plants in general" entry.

    Death-Cap / Destroying-Angel toadstool (Amanita Phalloides)
    Dosage: Fraction of one can kill, but eat 1 or 2 just in case.
    Time: Week or so
    Available: Have to know what it looks like.. similar edible ones
    Certainty: Definite without med. treatment; unknown with.
    Notes: [5, Volume 7, pp591-592]:
    "Poisoning by toxic Amanita species is characterised by a delay in
    onset of 4 to 12 hours. At this point, nausea vomiting, colic-like
    pain, and diarrhea occur. There then follows a period of respite,
    which can last for two to four days. This phase does NOT signify
    recovery: damage to the liver and kidneys continues to develop and
    the respite gives way to hepatic and renal failure. Death usually
    occurs a week or so after poisoning.". See "plants in general".

    Ricin (Castor oil plant, Ricinus Communis)
    Dosage: death has occured from eating 1 bean, but take more than 10
    Time: within 3 to 5 days
    Available: From eating the castor beans
    Certainty: depends on ricin content of the beans. Pure ricin is deadly
    Notes: [2] and [4]:
    Symptoms begin within a few hours with abdominal pain, vomiting and
    bloody diarrhoea for several days. Decreased production of urine and
    a fall in blood pressure. Note that people have survived eating more
    than 10 beans, *with treatment*. Presumably the fatal dose without
    medical intervention is less. Surviving more than 3 to 5 days usually
    means recovery. Ricin is described as " of the most potent toxins
    In 1978 a Bulgarian journalist (Georgi Markov) was assassinated in
    London by being prodded with an umbrella. The umbrella had a tiny ball
    coated with ricin on its tip, which lodged into the dissident. He
    died a few days later in hospital. See "plants in general".

    Colchicine (Acetyltrimethylcolchicinic acid, Autumn Crocus, Royal Lily)
    Dosage: 7 mg to 60 mg (why so wide variation?)
    Time: symptoms in about 4 hours, death in about 4 days
    Available: Easily available (from large garden centre)
    Certainty: certain
    Notes: [New Scientist article:]
    From the Autumn crocus (Colchicum Autumnale) / royal lily (Gloriosa
    Superba). One flower of CA is about 12 mg, so take at least five of
    them. 20g tuber of GS provides 60mg, single seed of CA provides 3.5mg
    (so take 18). Damages blood vessels and nerves, and stops cell
    division. Don't know whether its painful or not, but that bit about
    damaging nerves is worrying. I just _love_ the name of the acid! See
    See the "plants in general" entry.

    Aconitine (AKA Wolfsbane, Monkshood, aconitum napellus, a. anglicum)
    Dosage: "a few grams"
    Time: 10 mins to few hours
    Available: Garden plant, so get from garden centre
    Certainty: unknown (can be treated in hospital)
    Notes: [2] and [4]:
    The poison is concentrated in the unripe seed pods and roots.
    During winter, the roots are particularly poisonous. Symptoms develop
    in less than an hour. Burning sensation, feelings of coldness,
    sweating. Later, numbness, vomiting and diarrhoea with abdominal pain.
    Finally, slow pulse, convulsions and coma. Death may occur within 2
    hours. The poison kills by causing a cardiac failure, and it is
    painful. See the "plants in general" comment.

    Cicutoxin (Cowbane, Cicuta Virosa)
    Dosage: ".. a few bites .. can cause serious poisoning or death".
    Time: a few hours or more.
    Available: rare in most parts of UK, don't know about elsewhere.
    Certainty: good, but resembles wild carrot & wild parsnip.
    Notes: [4]:
    The poison is strongest in the yellow juice of the underground parts.
    Symptoms after half an hour: burning of mouth, excessive saliva,
    flushing, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, dilation of pupils, and later a
    bluish tinge to the skin. Muscular contractions and convulsions, with
    difficulties in breathing are followed by unconsciousness and death,
    often within a few hours of eating the plant. See "plants in general".

    Coniine, Gamma-Coniceine, others (Hemlock, Conium Maculatum)
    Dosage: unknown
    Time: unknown
    Available: Grows throughout UK, except north. Don't know about elsewhere.
    Certainty: unknown
    Notes: [4]:
    NOTE: There are many plants called "hemlock", some of which aren't
    poisonous at all. It can also be mistaken for wild parsley and carrot,
    and is in the same family as Cowbane.
    Symptoms appear in 15 mins to 2 hours. Initially burning and dryness
    of the mouth, muscular weakness leading to paralysis that affects the
    breathing. Sometimes also dilation of pupils, vomiting, diarrhoea,
    convulsions, and loss of consciousness. If this is survived, birth
    defects may be caused in pregnant women.
    This is said to be the plant that Socrates took in 399 BC.

    Oenanthetoxin (Hemlock Water Dropwort, Oenanthe Eroeata)
    Dosage: "..dangerously poisonous, even in small quantities".
    Time: Two to twelve hours.
    Available: Grows in chalky wet areas, particularly S and W Britain.
    Certainty: Fairly good, if you get the right species.
    Notes: [4]:
    The tubers contain more poison than the rest of the plant,
    particularly in winter and early spring, and may be cooked or dried.
    Symptoms within an hour or two, nausea, salivation, vomiting,
    diarrhoea, sweating, weakness of legs, dilation of pupils. Later loss
    of consciousness with convulsions before death. See "plants in
    general" entry. Same family as Hemlock.

    plants in general (hemlock, foxglove, oleander)
    Dosage: N/A
    Time: N/A
    Available: garden centre
    Certainty: questionable
    Notes: [1] says:
    "Everything I have ever read about death from plant poisoning
    indicates that it is risky and painful. Symptoms range from nausea and
    vomiting to cramping and bloody diarrhea. .... .. Altogether, I
    consider poisonous plants as a means of exit far too unreliable and
    painful. No matter how desperate you are, don't even think about it!"

    Nicotine (Rewritten by Calle)
    Dosage: extract from 100g tabacco? 40-60 mg pure.
    Time: Several hours, coma may set in much earlier. Much
    quicker if taken in large doses.
    Available: Easily available
    Certainty: Fairly certain, given a large enough dose.
    This is what Mike wrote:

    "Soak 100 grammes of tabacco for a few days. You get a brown
    mess. Strain off the tabacco, then simmer slowly until most of the
    liquid has gone, leaving about 2 teaspoons of brown treacle-like
    stuff. Add it to your night-time drink, and never wake up. Someone
    said the other day that 150mg of pure nicotine would be fatal in
    seconds. See the "plants in general" entry."

    It is correct, as far as I have found out. It can be added
    that the effects include violent convulsions and that the
    direct cause of death is respiratory failure. Smokers should
    use larger doses than non-smokers.

    Iron (diet suppliments)
    Dosage: unknown
    Time: unknown
    Available: diet, health food shops
    Certainty: good
    Notes: [2]:
    "Well it seems that iron pills achieve death. They oxydize in the
    stomach and eat a hole in it. The only reason I know this is that
    someone at my school just recently OD'd and died from this. It was
    ruled suicide since no person could accidently take that many iron
    pills. They didn't say how many she took or how many it takes to kill
    yourself though." [sounds unpleasant]

    Dosage: 1 ounce (don't know what that is in real weights..)
    Time: 2 to 3 hours?
    Available: Difficult
    Certainty: not known
    Notes: Read something in a newspaper... a coke dealer died after
    eating an ounce of it, when the police raided his house. Cause of
    death was a cardiac arrest 2 1/2 hours after the overdose. However, a
    cocaine OD is painful, and causes paranoia / breathing problems. One
    form of cocaine smuggling is to swallow condoms filled with the stuff.
    From time to time, a "mule" has a condom burst inside him, and dies in
    pain reasonably quickly.

    LSD (Lysergic acid diethylamide) nonfatal
    Dosage: infinite!
    Time: never
    Available: who cares?
    Certainty: will not kill you
    Notes: LSD can't kill you by overdose.. you might go psychotic if you
    take tens/hundreds of thousands of times the normal dose, but thats
    hardly surprising, since you'd have to be insane to take that much in
    the first place. General warning - even for normal use, if you are
    depressed, it'll just amplify the depression, not lift it, and the
    chances of a bad trip are probably higher. Probably, the only way to
    kill yourself with this stuff is to drop two tonnes of it on yourself.

    Calle: I don't quite believe in what Mike is saying about
    psychosis here. As far as I have been able to find out,
    LSD works by catalyzing certain substances in the brain,
    and thus vast overdoses have no more effect than merely
    large ones. Once all the stuff in your brain is used up,
    there will be no more effect.

    A correspondent points out a case reported by The Journal
    of Clinical Toxicology where eight people snorted pure
    LSD Tartrate, beliving that it was cocaine. The amounts
    ingested was estimated to be from 1000 to 10000 times an
    ordinary dose. Half of them lapsed into comas, but all of
    them came out of it without any treatment. Some were
    given Valium for anxiety efterwards.

    On the whole, it seems that LSD is about as safe as a
    drug can be, despite much propaganda saying otherwise.

    Heroin (morphine)
    Dosage: 120 to 500 mg in non-users.
    Time: unknown
    Available: From your friendly neighbourhood drug dealer.
    Certainty: unknown
    Notes: Combine it with alcohol, since a combination of alc & H is
    much more dangerous than alc or H alone.

    Dosage: very low, similar to cyanide
    Time: depends on dosage
    Available: extremely difficult
    Certainty: probable
    Notes: Rotenone is used by microbiologists to kill potentially
    dangerous bacteria cultures. It is extremely poisonous.

    Calle: A correspondent believes this entry to be erroneous, since
    in the litterature he consulted rotenone was mentioned as
    being used as an insecticide and not being all that toxic.

    Mercury (salts, soluble)
    Dosage: 1 gramme of salts
    Time: unknown
    Available: unknown (what are the _soluble_ salts? how to make?)
    Certainty: good
    Notes: Note that contrary to popular opinion, pure mercury metal isn't
    all that poisonous. The soluble salts are, however. The "mad hatter"
    story refers to brain damage that hat makers used to get from using
    mercury salts.

    Amobarbital (amytal, amal, eunoctal, etamyl, stadadorm)
    [this entry from [1]]
    Dosage: 4.5 grammes, typically 90 50mg tablets
    Time: unconscious in 5 -> 15 minutes, death in 20 -> 50 minutes

    Notes: use an airtight plastic bag, and a rubber band to get a very
    effective method. Alcohol speeds it up and makes it more reliable.
    Take an antihistamine about 10 minutes earlier. Empty stomach.
    Dissolve most of them in drink / food, and eat the remaining ones
    first so that it all peaks at the same time.

    III. PART3 Methods: other than poisoning

    2. HANGING
    1. asphyxiation (dangle on end of rope for 10 minutes)
    Time: 5 to 10 minutes
    Available: Rope, solid support 10 foot above ground
    Certainty: Fairly certain (discovery, rope/support snapping)
    Notes: Brain damage likely if rescued. Very painful depending on
    rope. Most common effective form of suicide in UK. See "Asphyxiation".

    2. breaking neck
    Time: Should be instant if it does break. See previous if not
    Available: Rope, solid support, 10 foot space below, several above
    Certainty: Very certain if the rope/support doesn't break
    Notes: Minimal danger of discovery (depends on location). Painless
    if you drop far enough (8 foot is optimum). Make sure that the rope
    is tied securely to something STRONG!! It has to support your weight
    MULTIPLIED by the deccelleration. Use a hangman's knot (with the knot
    at the back of your neck). It doesn't always work this well though,
    you might get a bust jaw / lacerations etc and then asphyxiate.

    Calle: I got this table of appropriate falling heights from
    a.s.h. long-time regular MegaZone (,
    who got it from a friend of his named Mark.

    Hanging Drop Heights...

    Culprits Weight Drop
    14 stone (196 lbs) 8ft 0in
    13.5 stone (189 lbs) 8ft 2in
    13 stone (182 lbs) 8ft 4in
    12.5 stone (175 lbs) 8ft 6in
    12 stone (168 lbs) 8ft 8in
    11.5 stone (161 lbs) 8ft 10in
    11 stone (154 lbs) 9ft 0in
    10.5 stone (147 lbs) 9ft 2in
    10 stone (140 lbs) 9ft 4in
    9.5 stone (133 lbs) 9ft 6in
    9 stone (126 lbs) 9ft 8in
    8.5 stone (119 lbs) 9ft 10in
    8 stone (112 lbs) 10ft 0in

    Source: Charles Duff, Handbook of Hanging (Boston: Hale,
    Cushman & Flint 1929)

    Notes: This is for person of average build with no unusual
    physical problems. The Author (James "Hangman" Barry) noted
    that when executing "persons who had attempted suicide by
    cutting their prevent reoping the wounds I have
    reduced the drop by nearly half."

    Time: Instantanious if you are lucky, minutes/hours otherwise
    Available: You need ten stories or higher, and access to the top floor
    windows/roof. Bring a bolt cutter to get onto the roof
    Certainty: 90% for 6 stories, increasing after that
    Notes: Difficult to overcome fear of heights, many people can't do it.
    Totally painless if high enough, but very frightening. Easily discovered
    if seen on/near roofdows. Access fairly easy in a city, otherwise
    difficult. Risk of spending the rest of your life in a wheelchair. Ever
    tried killing yourself if you are paralysed from the neck down? Email
    conversations suggest 10+ stories works ALMOST all of the time. Try to
    land on concrete. Quote - "9 out of 10 people who fall 6 stories will
    die". Note that it may take a while for many of those 90% to die.

    4. SLITTING WRISTS OR OTHER (often not effective)
    Time: Minutes if major artery cut, eternity otherwise.
    Available: You really need a razor sharp knife. Razors are pretty tricky
    to hold when they are covered with blood.
    Certainty: possible if you cut an artery, improbable otherwise
    Notes: Painful at first. Danger of discovery. This is a very common
    suicide 'gesture' and hardly ever results in anything other than a scar.
    A lot of will power required to cut deeply into groin or carotid
    arteries, which are the only ones likely to kill you. Don't bother with
    this method. Cutting your throat is difficult due to the fact that the
    carotid arteries are protected by your windpipe (feel where your arteries
    are with your fingertips, & slice from the side). I've seen photos of
    people who have used this method - the depth of the cut required is
    amazing. If you want to cut your wrists, cut along the blue line (vein)
    on the underside of your wrist, but cut deeply so that the artery
    underneath is exposed. Cut this lengthways with a razor or similar. The
    traditional hot bath does help, since it keeps the blood flowing quickly,
    slows down clotting, and is nice to lie back and relax in. Position
    yourself so that your wrists don't fall inwards against your body,
    blocking off blood flow.

    Calle: A posting to A.S.H. suggests using the kind of equipment
    they use when you give blood to a blood bank, i.e., a
    needle in a blood vessel and a piece of tubing. It sounds
    like it would remove several of the disadvantages of the
    ordinary slitting-wrists method.

    5. BULLET
    Time: Microseconds unless you are unlucky (mins/hours)
    Available: Difficult in UK, easier in USA (get a shotgun)
    Certainty: Certain
    Notes: Painless if worked, otherwise painful & brain damage.
    Danger of discovery of weapon or ammunition. Not at all common in UK,
    more common in USA where guns available. Brain damage & other effects if
    you survive. Death either instantaneous, or prolonged. Lots of will power
    needed to fire gun ('hesitation marks' are bullets/pellets embedded in
    the wall, when you jerk the gun as you fire). Bullet can miss vital parts
    in skull, deflect off skull. If you have a choice, use a shotgun rather
    than a rifle of a pistol, since it is so much more effective. ("shotgun"
    entry later). Ammunition to use is: .458 Winchester Magnum, or soft-point
    slugs with .44 Magnum. Also you could use a sabot round, which is a
    plastic wedge with a smaller thing in it. These rounds are rather
    overkill, the phrase "elephant gun" has been used about the .458
    Winchester, but if you're going to go, do it with a bang. Note, people
    usually survive single .22 shots to the temples. The other problem with
    guns is that is is bloody messy. Your next of kin will really _enjoy_
    cleaning up after you, washing the coagulated blood & brains out of
    corners etc...

    Time: 5 mins to unconciousness, 10+ mins to brain death
    Available: Anywhere there's a rope and something solid to tie it to
    Certainty: Certain, if you don't get "rescued"
    Notes: Panic reaction is very likely (unless inert gasses used).
    One of the most effective and most used methods of suicide.
    Probable brain damage if you are "rescued".
    NOTE, this can only really be done in two ways: firstly,
    when you are unconsious (eg, sleeping pills), or secondly,
    by hanging. Combining with pure inert gasses is a very good
    suggestion. See "Nitrogen" in the poisons section

    7. AIR IN VEINS (basically just a myth)
    Time: Couple of minutes claimed
    Available: Plenty of air about... Need a hypodermic & syringe
    Certainty: only 1 known case.. patient may already have been dead
    Notes: The only case I know about, it killed with 40cc of air. Smaller
    amounts are harmless. The case was the death of Abbie Borroto,
    who died in 1950 from a 40cc injection in New Hampshire. She
    died in minutes. This was the 1949 Dr H Sander case. He was
    found not guilty to murder on the grounds that the patient may
    already have been dead when he gave the injection. (A doctor and
    a nurse could find no pulse earlier the same day).
    The following 2 quotes are from [1]:
    Prof. Y Kenis says: "... not a suitable method, nor a gentle
    death... extremely difficult to utilize as a method of suicide.
    .. possibly with very serious consequences, such as paralysis or
    permanent brain damage. .. this is only an impression, and I have
    no real scientific information on the subject."
    Dr Pieter V Admiraal .. describes the theoretical air bubble
    method of suicide as impossible, disagreeable and cruel. "To
    kill somebody with air you would have to inject at least 100 ->
    200 millilitres as quickly as possible in a vein as big as
    possible close to the heart. You would have to fill the whole
    heart with air at once. The heart would probably beat on for
    several minutes, perhaps 5 -> 15 minutes, and during the first
    minutes the person may be conscious."

    Time: Couple of seconds before conciousness fades
    Available: Happen to have a train line nearby? Or a guillotine perhaps?
    Certainty: Very certain, unless you pull away just before
    Notes: See "jumping in front of trains". May be difficult to stop
    pulling your head out of the way - OD on sleeping tablets

    Calle: A news notice from California posted to
    tells the story of a man who comitted suicide nearly cut his
    own head off with a chainsaw. Sounds like a grisly way to do it.

    9. DISEMBOWELMENT (aka seppuku/hara kiri)
    Time: Minutes
    Available: Got a nice razor-sharp sword?
    Certainty: Fairly certain, assuming that you managed to gut yourself
    properly before passing out with the agony
    Notes: Painful, even the macho Samurai used a 'second' to decapitate them
    at the appropriate point, so don't expect to do much more than
    give yourself peritonitis. Trendy for insane martial arts
    fanatics and gay Japanese poets called Mishima.

    10. DROWNING
    Time: Minutes (5 mins to die of drowning, 20 to die of hypothermia)
    Available: Anywhere there's deep, (cold) water in a remote spot
    Certainty: Good, just make sure you sink & can't swim
    Notes: Put stones in your pockets, tie your legs & hands together,
    and hop into the lake.. bit of a shock to the fisherman who
    finds your rotting corpse stuck in his brand new net. Also see
    entry for "hypothermia/freezing". However, remember that you can be
    revived from cold water drowning after several hours, because the cold
    slows down terminal brain damage. Warmer water doesn't have the advantage
    of hypothermia, but is more effective in making sure you *stay* dead.

    Time: Seconds / minutes
    Available: Anywhere with high-tension, high-current lines & a good earth
    Certainty: Somewhat dependant on luck & how much power goes through you
    Notes: Don't bother with 110 or 240 volt mains, its just not enough.
    Some people do get killed with household electricity, but only
    after several minutes. Use high tension lines, stand in bare
    feet on waterlogged ground (better still, put a piece of THICK
    copper cable into the nearest river). Works best if current
    path travels through your head, or through the heart. Just
    burns you badly otherwise.
    NOTE: people have survived massive high-voltage, high-current
    shocks with nothing but 3rd degree burns to show for it.
    Sometimes paralysis, limbs amputated etc.

    Time: 10 milliseconds, or similar (!)
    Available: Difficult to get hold of detonator & good explosives
    Certainty: Certain if detonator works properly
    Notes: DON'T USE GUNPOWDER or other 'slow' explosives (eg,
    homemade explosives). Use dynamite or 'Plastique', strap
    it to your forehead with the detonator, and BOOM! The main
    problem is with getting hold of high explosives (I know the
    recipe for Nitro-Glycerine, but home manufacture is extremely
    risky, and the product is unstable). If you can get a grenade,
    use it, it's probably the best way of doing this one.

    Calle: Recipies for creating explosives can be found, together with
    the appropriate warnings, in the rec.pyrotechnics FAQ.

    13. FREEZING TO DEATH (hypothermia)
    Time: several hours (15 minutes in very cold water)
    Available: Got a large chest freezer? Is the outside temp < -10 degrees?
    Certainty: good if you don't get found
    Notes: Soak your cloths in water, get into freezer / outside
    somewhere where you won't be found. Helps to get pissed
    first - drink yourself silly. If you are near a very
    cold supply of water (eg, the North Sea, or similar) which is
    close to zero degrees, this is particularly good, since the
    average lifespan of someone in the water is 15 minutes.
    [1] says: ".. have quietly ascended their favorite mountain late
    in the day .. above the freezing line.. wearing light clothing,
    they sat down in a secluded spot to await the end. Some have said
    that they intended to take a tranquilizer to hasten the sleep of
    death. From what we know of hypothermia, they would pass out as
    the cold reached a certain level and they would die within a few
    hours. Of course in a very cold climate there is no need to climb
    a mountain." [eg, UK in midwinter :-). There was a death in the
    middle of the city park here just this last winter ('90) where a
    lady stripped after the park closed for the night.] A problem with
    this method is that because it slows the metabolism, and prevents
    damage to the brain, people can be revived several hours after 'death'

    Time: Seconds (or hours if unlucky)
    Available: Anywhere near a HIGH-SPEED railway line
    Certainty: Depends on your timing & speed of train. Go for decapitation
    Notes: Probably better to put your neck on the line, since a glancing
    blow would probably break your spine (& cripple you). High
    speed trains need a kilometer to stop, so find a blind corner.

    Time: Seconds to days
    Available: Anywhere you can get petrol & a match
    Certainty: good as long as you are far away from medical help
    Notes: bloody painful - one of the most agonising ways to die.
    If you do survive, you will be disfigured for the rest
    of your life.
    Try mixing the petrol with an explosive like TNT or NG,
    this will make it burn MUCH quicker, even if the explosive
    is very dilute.

    Time: 40 days give or take. Depends on health.
    Available: Anywhere where you can't be force-fed
    Certainty: Good as long as no medical help & will power holds up
    Notes: Supposed to be easier after the first couple of days, since
    your appetite goes. In a UK prison, you can't be force-fed
    unless you give permission first, or are diagnosed insane,
    but I don't know whether this is the same in other countries.
    Beware - relatives might give permission on your behalf if you
    are unconsious. (living will / durable power of attorney helps).
    It may help if you use an appetite suppressant. Amphetamines,
    and some drugs (MDMA, AKA XTC, AKA ecstasy, AKA
    metheylenedimethoxymethamphetamine is one such). The problem with
    these is that they are frequently illegal. I've also heard of
    something called Aminorex (4-methylaminorex) which was briefly
    prescribed as an appetite suppressant, but taken off the market
    since it had fatal side effects... which is hardly a problem!!
    [1] says:
    ".. after approximately 20 % of body weight loss, illness will
    begin to set in, notably severe indigestion, muscle weakness, and
    _worst of all_ mental incapacity. ... about 40 days before life
    is seriously theatened. ...."
    "In some cases self-starvation can be very painful. ... morphene
    had to be administered to kill the pain of fatal dehydration. .."

    Time: Hopefully instantanious
    Available: Fast car, motorway, unprotected bridge....
    Certainty: So-so, put a couple of cans of petrol on the passenger seat to
    make it certain, & USE YOUR SEATBELT
    Notes: Bridges are usually protected in the UK, don't know about USA.
    Avoid being thrown out of the car by using the seatbelt, and
    put petrol (in cans or just splashed about) near to the driver's
    seat just to make certain. Can be made to look accidental.

    18. SHOTGUN
    Time: Instantanious if you are lucky
    Available: Difficult in UK, easier in USA (due to gun laws)
    Certainty: Fairly certain
    Notes: 12-gauge shotgun with 3 inch Magnum shells with #2 to #000
    buckshot. See "Bullet" for other points. This is the recommended
    way to die by firearm. Apparently the shells suggested here
    are "extreme overkill", but thats the point really... problem
    here is that its amazingly messy - who is going to pick the
    festering lumps of gore out of the carpet? Another problem is that it
    is possible to miss your brain entirely, and just blow off your face

    19. ENLIST (silly)
    Time: Jan 15 '91 or other conflict
    Available: Just pop down to the local army office & sign on as a squaddie
    Certainty: Be a "hero". Life expectancy in a battle is 20 minutes
    Notes: I don't think this is an entirely serious suggestion,
    particularly since only 10% ever see the front line, and only
    a few of those ever see combat.

    Calle: You could always get employed as a mercenary. That way
    you'll at least see combat, improving your chances to die
    vastly. Still, a silly method.

    Time: Seconds or never
    Available: All you need is a couple of sharp pencils and a table
    Certainty: Very uncertain
    Notes: This is a myth, I think, since the pencils would go into your
    frontal lobes, which are basically optional. This is the
    legendary "exam suicide". Fine if you want a DIY frontal-
    lobotomy rather than death!

    Calle: This is an urban legend, see the alt.folklore.urban FAQ for
    more details.

    Time: Depends on method used
    Available: Know any murderous psychopaths? No, not the tax people...
    Certainty: Depends on method used, & dedication of murderer
    Notes: Forget it. Unless you contract someone to do it, the chances
    are that you are going to wake up in hospital without your
    wallet. If you do contract someone, how are you going to pay
    them? Can't take them to court for running off with your
    money and not doing the job.

    22. MAKE YOURSELF INTO AN H-BOMB (another silly one)
    Time: Speed of light over 1/2 metre (couple of nanoseconds)
    Available: Nuke (fission OR fusion), 10 litres of heavy water
    Certainty: 100%
    Notes: Drink the heavy water for several days, strap yourself to
    the nuke, and press the button. If you retained a couple of
    litres of the heavy water, the additional yield should be
    6 megajoules (give or take a few orders of magnitude). Note
    that heavy water is a poison, so you might not survive that
    long anyway.

    Calle: If I remember my physics correctly, there will be no reaction
    in your body no matter how much heavy water you have
    ingested. Not that it matters if you're sitting on an
    exploding hydrogen bomb!

    23. MICROMACHINES/NANOCOMPUTERS (science fiction)
    Time: years or a fraction of a second - depends how you look at it
    Available: in 50 -> 1000 years time?
    Certainty: Good assuming that the technology is developed
    Notes: Basically, this involves a 'replicator' panel. You program it
    to replicate yourself, simplifying very slightly, with the
    exception of the urge to use this technique. After a while, you
    turn into a mindless zombie, trudging around from the exit of
    the machine to the entrance, for eternity. Strange philosophical

    Calle: If you postulate nanomachines, why not use the deconstructor
    kind? Take your body apart into its component molecules in
    less than a minute... A silly method, if you hadn't guessed.

    24. SCUBA-DIVING (various fatal 'accidents')
    Time: see notes -most are minutes/hours
    Available: scuba diving gear, nobody around
    Certainty: see notes
    Notes: The first method is to rise 30 metres or so without releasing
    your breath. Assuming that you can do it, it should cause your
    lungs to burst. The second is the bends - stay under long enough
    for the nitrogen to dissolve (30 metres for 30 minutes). go up
    rapidly without decompression time. This is unreliable, and
    may cause brain / joint damage. The third way is Carbon Monoxide
    poisoning - fill your tank with it, and stay away from other
    divers. You will fall asleep fairly quickly. See CO in poisons
    section. The final way is oxygen poisoning - however, this means
    that you have to go very deep with an oxygen-rich mix, and
    there are problems associated with that. The advantage of these
    methods is that insurance companies / relatives will assume that
    it was an accident ('misadventure'), with the possible exception
    of the CO poisoning.
    The source of this follows: (from the net)
    "Rising 30m without exhaling will usually result in an over
    pressured lung, possible subcuteaneous emphazema, collapsed
    lung, death usually from drowning in your own blood. Rather
    painful and usually curable if you are rescued, but fair chance
    of dying if you aren't.
    Building up a high residual nitrogen time (say 30m for 30 min)
    then coming up without decompressing will get you bent fairly
    nicely. You don't feel much, but your joints tend to start
    stiffening up after half an hour. Death is very uncertain,
    coming from a stroke. Brain damage, joint damage etc are most
    likely. Pobably can be recued but some damage certain.
    Oxygen poisoning, going down 50+m until the partial pressure of
    the oxygen reaches a toxic level. Difficult to accomplish, very
    painful to get down that deep, cold pressure etc, possibility
    of nitrogen narcosis and forgetting what you are doing. Probably
    get bent, good chance of rescue.
    CO poisoning, mix a healthy batch of carbon monoxide in your
    tank as you dive, you tend to go to sleep under water, when
    combined with the above methods you have a pretty good winner,
    don't forget to forget your BCD."

    Time: Minutes
    Available: You'd need a Puma (TM) robot, & some other bits
    Certainty: certain, given proper programming
    Notes: You would need an industrial robot to do this properly. Give
    it a saw attachment, a sucking tube attachment, and program
    it. Make a head restraint. When you are fixed securely into
    the restraint, start the robot's program. It will drill a hole
    in your head, and stick the tube into the hole. Program it to
    wiggle the tube back and forth so that it doesn't miss anything.
    This might work better if you put a stream of water into the
    hole as well, so that the sucking attachment doesn't just suck
    air all the time. Debugging the program could be amusing.

    Time: ?
    Available: Source of strong microwave emissions
    Certainty: ?
    Notes: Cooking yourself. Point is to raise your core body temperature
    to fatal levels.

    Calle: Does anyone have any information on this? All that I know is
    that standing in front of a Swedish coast surveillance radar
    (which happens to use exactly the same wavelength as your
    average microwave oven) is a Bad Thing.

    Time: a week or so?
    Available: you need to be able to stop medical help.
    Certainty: certain if your will-power stands up to it.
    Notes: Don't eat or drink. Remember that food contains a high
    proportion of water. Avoiding medical help can be difficult.
    See 'starving to death'.

    Time: pretty damn quick.
    Available: need to join a skydiving club. Takes much time and money.
    Certainty: Fairly certain. People have fallen from extreme heights
    and survived. The resulting injuries are not fun.
    Notes: Join a skydiving club, continue to practise it for a while to
    clear off all suspicions and then once pack your parachute in
    a real mess (preferably knotted up, but not too clearly) and
    then jump. The para will not open and you will reach a terminal
    velocity of 220 km/h (160 mph/120 kn). Death is instant in the
    impact with the Planet Earth.
    This has the advantages of being 'accidental', and your family/
    friends do not have the additional pain and guilt associated
    with suicides.

    Calle: In addition to the above, you need to remove or disable your
    reserve parachute (which is not easy, I'm told). There are
    better "accidental" methods than this.

    A correspondent who is a skydiver dislikes this entry, since
    if people use it it will give skydiving an undeservedly bad

    Time: variable
    Available: a heck of a lot of razor-wire.. maybe a high-voltage supply
    Certainty: not very good
    Notes: This is a modern variant of the Arabic 'Death of a thousand
    cuts'. Basically, jump onto a stack of unravelled razor wire,
    and roll around till you die.. it may help to connect a high-
    voltage, low current power supply to the wire, so that you have
    spasms, which should keep you getting cut even when you are
    unconscious. Also, you should make sure that you can't roll off
    the wire.

    30. CRUSHING
    Time: seconds to minutes, depends on car press
    Available: a car press.. any good junkyard
    Certainty: certain as long as you can't escape
    Notes: This is an elegantly simple one.. get into a car, in a car
    press, and shortly afterwards be squashed to death as your
    body is converted into a red pulp. It may be tricky getting
    the press to trigger, but if you hide in the car someone
    may come along and activate it. There are other ways of
    getting crushed, this just happens to be the most effective
    I can think up on the spur of the moment. Getting yourself
    run over by a fully loaded articulated lorry is quite good.
    You should remember that people quite often survive the actual
    crushing; they die when the weight is taken OFF them.

    Time: moments if you are near a militarilly significant site
    Available: happen to be one of the 'key-holders'? president maybe?
    Certainty: pretty certain
    Notes: All you have to do is trigger world war three. Fire an ICBM
    or three at the Chinese and the Russians... This method has
    the advantage that you take everyone else with you! Trouble
    is, the number of people with the requisite access is minimal,
    and I sort of doubt that any readers of ASH can do this.

    Calle: Lots harder since the collapse of the Soviet Union... Silly.

    Time: 4 hours or more
    Available: Very hot day; no disturbance from neighbours etc
    Certainty: depends on the weather
    Notes: Basically, the point is to give yourself extreme heatstroke.
    You should pass out after a few hours. Use some aluminium foil
    to direct the sun's heat onto you, to speed up the process
    a bit. Try to reduce the chance of being interuppted, take off
    the phone etc. Obviously, start in the morning! Helps if the
    outside temperature is >100F.

    33. ACID BATH
    Time: depends on acid
    Available: a lot of a very strong acid
    Certainty: fairly good
    Notes: [from]
    "summer heat got you down? Try the new and improved neighbourhood
    acid bath. Most metal working plants and some auto-repair shops
    will have a nice soothing acid bath. This, of course, is for
    those of you who enjoy extreme pain and don't want to make a
    mess for others to clean up. If you don't leave a note chances
    are they will never know what happened, aside from the shop /
    plant being broken into."

    Time: milliseconds
    Available: explosive
    Certainty: fairly good if enough explosive
    Notes: This is a modification of the basic use-explosives method. What
    you do, is make a homemade car bomb, and drive off happily after
    chatting with your neighbour about how well your life is going,
    apart from a few minor death-threats from an Iraqi death-squad..
    To confuse the authorities even more, have a note in your pocket
    listing the telephone numbers of all the eastern foreign
    embassies in your pocket, together with a little line of random
    "code numbers" next to each.., and a random but large amount of
    cash listed against each code number. :-) Oh yes, and a heavily
    annotated copy of Jane's Defence Weekly - Xhosa edition.

    35. JUMPING OFF BRIDGES (slice and dice with piano wire)
    Time: 9.87 ms-2; 4 to 10 meters; calculate it yourself!
    Available: Rope, pianowire and a high bridge.
    Certainty: Fairly certain
    Notes: Never been tried. Can also be used with a fairly
    high building, but then the art-motive will
    Cut the rope and wire in various lengths. Each
    length must not be longer than the height of the
    Tie one end of the ropes and wires to the bridge
    Tie the other part of the ropes to different bodyparts
    like thigh, calves, torso etc. Then tie the
    pianowires around your joints. (Don't forget your
    When you jump various parts of you body are whipped
    away by the pianowire nooses, and your bits are held
    up by the ropes swaying in the breeze.
    If you to this right you should end up with just your
    torso hanging by it's neck above the sea, highway,
    Do it with friends, and call it art.

    Time: depends, but probably a couple of minutes
    Available: zoo, or live in Africa/wherever
    Certainty: not brilliant.. what if they're not hungry and don't finish?
    Notes: basically, find one or more hungry carnivores... tigers
    are nice. Also, sharks, lions, any of the big cats..

    Time: probably a few minutes
    Available: if you happen to be able to get into orbit
    Certainty: about as certain as you can get!
    Notes: Just go for a spacewalk in a low earth orbit, and decelerate
    enough to enter the atmosphere. You'll get a great view...

    Time: Incubation period 1 to 10 years, death within 2 years of diagnosis
    of AIDS, Can have HIV for years/decades
    Dosage: Just one intimate contact with an Infected person of any gender
    Available: Available to all for free
    Certainty: 99.9% certainty AFTER infected
    Notes: [2]:
    This is not painfree. This method may cost you alot of money if
    you allow others to get you medical attention. It may a little difficult
    to get infected as people who know they have it may not comply with
    your request. Could be great fun attempting to get infected depending
    upon your attitude (remember -any gender - you don't have to limit
    yourself - you're going to die, you might as well try it . Should be
    quite devasting to your family & close friends. You also get the
    satisfaction of leaving behind a virtual unrecognizable-as-you body !
    This also gives you the prime opportunity to point your finger at your
    dentist and say he did it for all the times you have suffered in their
    chair. Happy dying !

    Calle: May not be so certain any more. Ten years may well be long
    enough for someone to develop a cure. Silly, IMHO.

    39. AUTO-DECAPITATION BY CAR (added by Calle)
    Time: Real quick
    Available: You need access to a car and a rope
    Certainty: I wouldn't trust it
    Comes from Basic idea is to tie one end of
    the rope around your neck, tie the other end to a real solid
    object, get into the car and accelerate away as fast as the car
    can manage. When you reach the end of the rope, your head gets
    torn off. Be sure to use enough rope and fasten your seat belt.

    A posting to a.s.h. in July 1993 says that someone in Washinton
    State, USA actually used this method to commit suicide, so it
    can't be that bad. The posting said that 25 feet of rope were
    used (about 7.5 meters), which does sound a bit short. Perhaps
    he had a real awesome car.

    40. DEATH BY PAINTING YOUR BODY (very silly, and wrong)
    Dosage : Less than 1 can of paint depending on your body type
    Time : ? Probably less than 8 hours
    Availability : Very available ! You have a choice of greasepaint or
    House paint. You need a type of paint that will not allow your
    pores to breath in order to be successful at this. You also have
    a smashing selection of colors you can choose to die in ! Nile
    Green ? Blood Red ? Basic Black ? Or any combo you desire.. If
    you couldn't decide before what to wear to die in, this method
    will cause you considerable angst.
    Certainty : This is a sure method, provided you have a paint that
    will block your pores from breathing. Don't forget the bottom of
    your feet. You must paint every last bit of available skin. If
    your pores can breathe, you won't die.
    Notes : I read this in some theater journal 5 or so years ago,
    saying when you you do full body makeup, you must insure that
    parts of the body are left naked to breathe or the actor will
    die. Usually for full body makeup, they leave the bottoms of
    feet, and some patterns on the body, like lines so the actor
    doesn't suffocate.

    Calle: This is an *extremely* silly one. It was in the "not yet
    edited" portion of Mike's file, and I think it is quite straight
    from an a.s.h. posting.
    This method does not work. As you can check in most any book on
    human anatomy, the skin does not breathe. The only places in
    your body which absorbs oxygen are the lungs and the corneas,
    and the corneas only feed themselves.
    You might get ill or even die if you use poisonous paint, though.
