Agreed, each to their own.

To clarify, when I said dignity, I basically meant a "clean", and less frightening death. All of the other suggested ways of going in this thread tend to be, well, messy. Leaving a lot more for loved ones to deal with than what this machine would. As for the less frightening bit, I'd wager that a bullet or a cliff would be way more difficult to follow through with than lying down on a bed and getting dizzy for a second before passing out.
When a terminal patient is trying to go out the way they want to, I think it should be as peaceful as possible. I don't think they should have to think to themselves, "ok, gotta suck it up and pull the trigger" while they're terrified is nearly as dignified as this option.

Not arguing, just clarifying my opinion.

Just give them an 'awesome dose', fly them out over international waters, and the parachutes "mysteriously" never open and they go out in the ultimate out of this world experience.

Dead is dead mate.

It's in the post for everyone.

End of the day it's the journey that counts.

$5-15 for the dose. National average price to go parachuting is $250. Mock parachute $80.

Chartered plane,pilot,fuel, person to administer dose.
Fewer people want to die than go parachuting.
Gotta go far enough that you don’t wash up either.

How much does a bullet cost? You save 5 grand so that your family can pay for a funeral instead.


messy.

Personally for the dying I think there should always be a painless option for suicide.

You just put the dose on your tongue. No physician needed.

Yes the fish and the seagulls i imagine.

They will clean you up in no time sharpish, where as this dude just wants to clean you out really.


Not good enough. Someone finds a bone on a beach and suddenly every police investigator in the area will be prying around and wasting time. With the pod, everyone knows it's you. Everyone knows you did it. No clean up. No investigation necessary. Open and shut case.

far too complicated

ingredients :

1 body bag

1 1l nitrogen cylinder with regulator set for 100l / min delivery

1 well ventilated room

method - climb inside body bag - with cyliner - zip up body bag , open main valve on cylinder

result - the nitrogen will inflate the bag - and as they is not aior tight - the gas will displace the air in the bag - painless asphyxiation occurs

with only approx 220l of gas - the bottle will empty quickly - and be diluted in the room - not posing any risk to others - suicidee = dead - and already in body bag

simples

Too complicated, and boring.

I once read a story some dumb teenagers climbed inside of garbage bags and filled them up with nitrous oxide.

Well, lets ask those poor souls who used a shotgun to end their lives, but sadly survived, with no face left.

A painless, easy method of ending a life of suffering, sound perfectly fine to me.

But god botherers want it left to the hands of god, to leave them suffering, in pain while their relatives and loves one have to watch them become so debilitated that they become husks of their former self, and leave this existence without any dignity.

Whats wrong with a short walk off a height cliff in the dark?

That would be both free and environmentally friendly.


lol so true, plus you will sort of fly for a few seconds.


Like all those people who had to willingly jump from the WTC towers?

Such fun.
