Hey, that shit is painful done twice in a row. I don't wanna know what 42 feels like.

Don't worry, after fapping 5 or 6 times, you will stop feeling your dick.

Overdosing is painless. I've had friends who overdose.

If you're hit by a train hard enough I'm sure that you'd die before feeling any pain. I can take from my experience of being hit by a car. Your body goes into shock so quickly that you really don't feel anything until maybe you notice that your head has been split open. In fact, the real pain doesn't come until the morning after. But if one were to be hit hard enough that they were to die almost instantly, then they are certain to feel nothing.

I think human reaction time is something like 2 seconds. So if you destroy your brain within 2 seconds you're golden.
Even if it takes .5 of a second to register pain a gunshot would still take you out with no fuss.

Problem is, we dont have the technology to overcharge, or even stabilize a tachyon particle.
Do you really think that the human reaction time is around the speed of light or something? A bullet is more than fast enough, if it passes straight through the brain.

80 milliseconds. It's all ya need.

Hemlock, I think it was used to kill Socrates.
You start going numb in the feet, it travels up and reaches your heart and then you die.

I think most barbiturates are pretty painless, you just need an antiemitic to stop yourself chucking it back up.

LONK. That's 11811.0236 in/s for the average 9mm bullet. A 9 mm would only have to go four to six, maybe as little as two or three inches into your brain (depending on what it hits) to cause massive, irreparable trauma. Even if your brain could technically detect that something was happening, you wouldn't be able to feel conscious pain by that time.

Your brain doesn't have to be mush to be rendered useless. A hole through the brain (even for a small bullet like a 10/22 it'd be a relatively large hole, modern ballistics and whatnot) would sever nerve connections, pierce glands, and cause all sorts of hell. Really, shooting yourself in the head is about as painless as it gets.

Easy.

1) Put subject under anesthetic.
2) Remove the sensory cortex from the subject's brain.
3) Subject dies. Without a sensory cortex, there's nothing to process any related sensation.

Painless death. There you go.

Again, as I said earlier, a drug overdose. It's common as hell, and most drug addicts fail to realize it's easier done than said. It's super common in opiate abusers, but easier in benzo addicts.

Not worth dying these days, I suppose. Look. I'm not going to say "omg dont kill yourself ppl care" like a faggot. However, I'll do say, if you were suicidal, I'm jealous. Why? Because that gives me an excuse to do anything I want because I'd have nothing to lose. I would be anything I'd like to be, maybe something like some kind of hunter who only hunts bears with knives, because I would be crazy enough to do it, because I'd have nothing to lose. So yeah, I'm jealous if you are suicidal, because I have an excuse to stay where I am, and I have some things to lose...

Well, wishing to die and having the courage to bring this about are separate. I think you actually envy people who are unafraid of death - not necessarily those who prefer it over life.

Do most Hybrid cars still have exhaust pipes to mask the holes with tape in order to do that , I Sort of know how it's done but Is there like a case of dizziness at first when you're exposed to it?

How do you think they have the ability to shrug off the rational fear of death? I take you are not afraid of death, but you are wary of pain. Why is that? I seemed to witness that too much in my life. Why not go out in a bang, all death ends in pure bliss because the brain releases dopamine right before you die, so you die in pure delirium? Anyways, no need to be cryptic, which is no familiarity of myself; you do seem distraught over something, and you do wish to commit suicide. Any reason why?

I find it funny how everyone here is trying to find the least painful way to die, yet have not experienced it yet themselves firsthand.

Seriously, none of us have here died, so how would we know?

That's like saying if Jewish people count as Christians. It's similar in some ways, but in reality totally different.

Intense pain is something I would think most people fear, or are at least discouraged by. Even if the experience is short, it's still there. And, I do not wish to commit suicide if it means pain (or even without pain; but then it would be more appealing). However, personal circumstances suggest that there is little left in life. I am simply curious if a painless death is actually possible.

I'm going to disagree. Here's why; Let's say there's a totally hypothetical situation and involves a person of ill refute. Let's call him Henry... So Henry starts his day by doing by doing some drugs. He starts it easy by smoking some weed in the morning, and he gets the munchies. You know, he gets fucking hungry as shit, and he eats his breakfast, and after that he goes to work. Now Henry has mild scoliosis or whatever. He feels back pain, so he takes a valium. He says to himself "This shit isn't working" and ups his dose. He does this and starts to drink when he gets home. He has about 18 pills by the end of the day. He's fucking gone, and goes home to drink where he OD's. Thankfully his neighbor finds him drooling in his house. I guess he needed to borrow the lawnmower or whatever, but whatever, he calls the ambulance and Henry is flatlining. He's officially DEAD. No go, no collect your 200 dollars, and you lost the boot for your monopoly game. However, one of the kiddies in the ambulance thought to himself "Flatline + Basic Medic training = Sexy lotion on Henry's chest and sensual defib love". Basically he gets shocked to life. Wait, he was dead? Now alive? But, then he's a zombie. No, he was temporary dead, and was a near death scenario that was totally hypothetical, and your statement is moot.

According to the law, the official term for death is the loss of life, i.e. no longer living. Since "Henry" was incapacitated for a finite amount of time, BUT was revived soon after, he technically wasn't dead in the first place.

So, flatlining and showing no symptoms of living, then getting defibed' back to life isn't a temporary death? You can lose a life, but you can get it back. Incapacitation and temporary death are different. But I'll give you the benefit of the doubt because I'm too tired to give a shit right now.
