Suicide is a sad and gloomy topic, probably not the favorite of most of us but there are some suicides that are really worth mentioning. Some of them might be odd and some of them are pretty sick; however, it’s fascinating to see such creativity…and such a strong will to die for some.
|It can bring you closer to God |
in many different ways.
7 – The first one on our list is not that gruesome, but very odd. I’m not a religious person and I might have trouble understanding why anyone would try to kill themselves by eating a Bible. First of all, a Bible is rectangular so I wouldn’t be eager to see the autopsy photos. My second concern is how you make that decision? I know it’s hard to find suicide supplies in a prison, but seriously, you start eating a book?
The interview with the doctor is absolutely fascinating:
“I found I was physically not strong enough to pull the object out of this guy's throat”.
“The average person does not have the will to persistently shove something of such a size, such a solidity down the throat. “
If I am going to commit suicide one day, I want to baffle the doctor the same way this guy did. I mean, if you are going to die, at least be creative and this guy managed to shock everybody.
It seems he had a thing for shoving stuff down his throat because he previously tried to choke with his fists, which should have made the staff a little bit more suspicious and probably they should have kept him under strict supervision.
We can all agree that the guy who did this wasn’t sane and it seems that the jail psychiatrist can confirm it because apparently before committing suicide the man was psychotic and refused to take medication.
|Perhaps I exaggerated with this, |
I don't think they have Hello Kitty toilet paper in prison.
There’s not much to say about his behavior, but it seems that prisons should take more measures against suicide and not only prohibit shoe laces and belts, but also toilet paper. It would lead to a messy situation but less people would die.
|They were waiting for him to snap.|
5 - If you are a janitor at a Zoo and you want to commit suicide, you can always choose to be eaten alive by wild animals. This man from
went into the tigers’ cage and...well, died. Apparently he was committing suicide. We have to give him credit because it is such a brave way to die. It seems that there is a video about it on YouTube but I couldn’t show it to you guys or see it myself because I don’t have the stomach for such things. Singapore
|Shouldn't be used as a skin moisturizer |
or a main ingredient for a cocktail.
4 – If you thought only men are brave enough to commit gruesome suicides, you are wrong. Angela Scoular, an English actress, committed a really sick suicide. She suffered from depression most of her life and tried to commit suicide by cutting her wrists. In 2009 she was diagnosed with colorectal cancer and despite the fact that she managed to be cured, she was afraid that it would return. In 2011 she died by ingesting acid drain cleaner and pouring it on her body too to make sure that she would die from burns if drinking it was not enough. Apparently she was suffering from bipolar disorder.
|Decapitation probably isn't covered by insurance.|
3 – This next suicide story is about a wealthy man who died in a really cool way. He wanted to get revenge on his wife. But he didn’t do it the way most people get revenge, like cheating with a younger woman, going to Las Vegas and spending money on strippers, participating in a Donkey Show or having mushroom trips. No, the guy decapitated himself.
But that’s not the cool part of the story, the cool part is the fact that he used an Aston Martin to do it. He used a rope which he tied on a tree and then tied it on his neck;so, you probably imagine what happened next. He drove away on a very busy road and got decapitated while a lot of people watched. That's such a badass way to die.
|And they say shooting yourself is the easiest way to die.|
This suicide is so sick and the man wanted to die so much that I really feel sorry for him trying so hard. Apparently he started by shooting himself in the rib cage after loading the first cartridge. That didn’t work so he went to his car and got another cartridge and shot himself in the throat. That didn’t work either because it only took a part of his lower jaw. Probably pretty upset about his suicide, he then walked about 136 meters on a hill so that he could load another cartridge and shot himself in the chest. That last one was fatal and by the time I read that I was really hoping he managed to do it because that’s probably the most unlucky person in the universe. The moral of this story: keep your cartridges near and always aim for the heart.
|At least he was eco friendly about it |
and made himself biodegradable.
1 - The first place should be given to someone special and there’s nothing more special than a schizophrenic artist. He was very creative with his death. Richard Sumner was missing for three years when a skeleton was found in a forest. Apparently, he handcuffed himself to a tree and then threw away the key to make sure it was out of his reach. They discovered that he changed his mind about the suicide because he tried to free himself, but he failed. That’s probably the most creative and sickest way to commit suicide, but he was an artist so he wanted to die like one too. He was also suffering from schizophrenia for a very long time, so that might have added to his creativity.
