Suicide Booths: Convenient Death

Why should killing your own self be a messy procedure?! We really need well-designed suicide booths for the convenience of those tired of life... Don't we?! Life is tough, why should death be so as well!!

Imagine having a small booth, you pay service charge and the machine kills you the way you wish to die. Maybe it can ask you about your favorite death mode. In the futuristic vision of Futurama (a cartoon series), they envision such a machine that offers two modes of death: "Quick and painless", and "Slow and horrible"!! A nice offer indeed and only for 25cents!!

If you are having trouble imagining how such booths would look and operate, maybe you should check this small clip. If the Futurama writers are correct, "Stop'n'drop is America's favorite suicide booth since 2008", this means we have about one year until the first general public designs will come into the market!! Lets hope these superb services would become available to our pathetic generations...

Ewww! What a horrible idea! :S

When someone jumps off the roof and lands on your car smashing it, and you end up being jailed because your car was in the way of that person, during a life-time in prison, you'll have plenty of time to think of how much trouble would suicide booths have saved you!!

Or imagine someone who wanted to suicide, so he gets a gun, shoots himself, but that shot doesn't kill him, so he has to spend the rest of his life in vegetative state. Or a poor person who doesn't have the money to buy a gun, but finds a cheap poison that kills slowly and painfully.

So as you see, this idea can be useful to everybody, suicidal or not!!

The Observer said...

I know it can.

But no need to merchandise it.

I guess, it can be a personal choice after-all.

No_Angel said...

hey suicide is an art, you shouldn't commercialize it.

It should make a statement
like blowing ur head with a shot gun after becoming the best rocker on the planet
or maybe od'ing
hmm how about expressing the cruelty to animals by going throw a meat house... ground beef anyone ?


maybe making your last master piece with ur last drop of blood ?


damn jumping of the building is so cliche.

even better commercialize the ideas and leave the execution to them, that way you won't be prosecuted !

ENJOY !

Well, if some sick psycho thinks suicide is an art and wants to kill himself in a way that grabs people's attention, that their choice.

But for the honest folk, who want to take a rest from life the last thing they want is to create a mess...

Observer, sure its a choice. Nobody will push you into that booth!! And, just like our beloved Windows, we can have the machine ask: "Are you sure you want to die?" "yes/no"... This way we can eliminate chances of accidentally killing yourself!!

Devil's Mind said...

BTW, the description "sick psycho" is just a sarcastic joke, no offense is meant by that.

No_Angel said...

hehe how i love behavioral modification psychology :D
am not offended at all, i was being sarcastic tooo but thats the worst word art to make its transition to the web so its kinda hard to know for sure when someone is being sarcastic

Dude, Mr Anonymous, stop bitching about a lame joke you made. This blog is a *public* channel, so you have to expect anyone on the surface of this globe to jump right in and give their opinion.

Please don't get aggressive towards other readers... Lastly, try to stick to the topic at hand, don't divulge into side-topics.

Wow, an amazing machine, yes I believe the process should be neat and simple, calm without creating a mess. No need for criminal investigations, funerals, graves, the machine should dispose the body cleanly. A more advance machine should be e-connected to the government to erase all your files, it’s just like a simple undo click to your life when you feel you don’t want to continue. It maybe also connected to mini-news feed in facebook saying “ your friend husams has left away, if you want to send a gift to his soul pay 1$”

I was just bitching on my blog about this dude who decided to kill himself by jumping in front of a train delaying hundreds of people….the selfish prick :S

I think this machine is a great idea!

7aki Fadi said...

Zaman 3an your blog.

Been a while since i last visited.

Didn't reliaze that that new aggregator was yours..mabrook :).

Devil's Mind said...

Good forward thinking Husams!! I think you should patent this idea, so that nobody would steal your ideas when the suicide booths are implemented...

Devil's Mind said...

"the selfish prick :S" - I don't think he was being selfish, but lets just say, the options at this time are limited... Its hard to find a place to take a rest, without bothering others, or others bothering you!! Its a defect in the system!
