alt.suicide

Are you aware that there exists a group who supports an individual's freedom to choose to kill him/herself? If you're not, you haven't heard about alt.suicide.bus.stop or alt.suicide.holiday. The two groups are inter-related but I'll write more about them later.

Suicide is frowned upon by civilized society. Heck, there are still Roman Catholics who don't allow proper burials for those who died from committing suicide. Killing of self is seen as a sign of weakness, a sin, a forbidden act but society should also look at the point of view of the person who wants to do it. Ponder on the why's inside the person's mind. Why does he want to die? What brought it about?

Basically, the two alt.suicide groups want to help those who are considering suicide by teaching them alternative philosophies, suicide methods, debates on its morality, among other things and by doing so, giving the present of a guilt-free death if a person ends up committing the act.

The Death Clock

The death clock is just an ordinary site which computes the date of your death based on your date of birth, sex, smoking habits, and body mass index (BMI). You get to choose between the ff modes: normal, pessimistic, sadistic, and optimistic.

I got March 16, 2037 based on normal mode, January 1, 2019 on pessimistic, and March 16, 2007 on sadistic. I didn't bother with optimistic mode.
