So I've been thinking a lot about the problem with suicide.
The biggest issue with doing it is the actual act of doing it of course, pulling the trigger, popping that pill, ect. Humans like most animals have this deep seeded instinct for survival. We'll try to keep on living no matter how horrible and pointless it might be to do so. On top of that, it's not like we can just get someone else to do it for us right?
I believe this is why so many people talk about doing it endlessly and never commit, or maybe even attempt it in half hearted ways that they know won't actually work. They might really want to do it but just can't make themselves.
So what if you could do it passively? What if you didn't know if/when it was going to come? What if your actions only indirectly lead to suicide?

I had the idea for this after thinking a lot the other night about shooting myself with two guns at the same time from opposite sides, and what it might be like if the two bullets collided inside my brain. I got to thinking that the timing and aiming would need to be very precise. Naturally for this the guns would need to be mounted on racks of some sort. bore sights would make it pretty easy to align the gun's trajectory. One could also attach bicycle cable to the triggers and with a pully system be combined to one. you could even go one step further and attach them to an actuator, which only needs a power source and a simple switch to open/close the circuit and activate it. This all comes with the problem of flipping the actual switch of course. So I thought about it.

So my idea is a pressure sensitive switch built into the seat of a chair. Once you sit down, you'd have ten minutes before a randomizer starts. That's more than enough time to think things over and get out if you change your mind. Once the ten minutes pass, you have anywhere from one minute to nighty minutes before the system goes off. Plenty of time to take your mind off things and watch a movie or something. Of course, if at any time you change your mind, even after those ten minutes, you can still cancel the process, which would start over from 0 the next time around. I think this would help give the device an air of safety and better assist in tricking one's brain into allowing you to do it. The guns meanwhile would be hidden behind head rests, but don't really even need to be guns. Steel rods, cross bow bolts, an explosive, anything can work. The idea is to fire off a bunch of objects at high speed into the space the user's head would be (naturally it can be adjusted for different high requirements.), not just one since that could lead to survival and living with possible brain damnage.
It's also a rough guess, but I think something like this could easily be built for under $500.

so what do you guys think? Got any suggestions? Or am I over thinking this and should just go suck fumes while I leave a car running in a garage?

Living is already too much effort. I think I'd need to find a purpose in my life before I could scrounge up the energy to build a death chair.

Some similar things have been done but with the purpose of absolute effectivity, see pic related. To me it seems like you are agonizing over the idea of suicide but can't really decide so you have this weird overcomplicated thoughts. Of course there's ways of suicide by others, in the US, suicide by cop.
You also make me remember this (3D):

I understand the psychology beyond it. I'm somehow there too, in my case I don't like the idea of dying before my mother, also I spend my time thinking about how to leave things in order, the inheritance, the funeral, the contracts and shit I'll leave unattended. At least the method seems relatively clear to me, I don't tend to fantasize about complicated ways to go, just get your inert gas of choice and a proper place. Overall, tricks of the mind and it sucks, it's like a long slow disease that doesn't even bother to kill you properly.

This seems overcomplicated, and the more parts you have the more likely something will break or go wrong.

Seems like someone actually went ahead with the suicide machine idea:

>It’s a 3-D printed capsule, activated from the inside by the person intending to die. The machine can be towed anywhere for the death. It can be in an idyllic outdoor setting or in the premises of an assisted suicide organisation, for example.

>The person will get into the capsule and lie down. It’s very comfortable. They will be asked a number of questions and when they have answered, they may press the button inside the capsule activating the mechanism in their own time.

>The capsule is sitting on a piece of equipment that will flood the interior with nitrogen, rapidly reducing the oxygen level to 1 per cent from 21 per cent in about 30 seconds. The person will feel a little disoriented and may feel slightly euphoric before they lose consciousness. Death takes place through hypoxia and hypocapnia, oxygen and carbon dioxide deprivation, respectively. There is no panic, no choking feeling.

That's an interesting idea OP. A few years ago when I was at my absolute lowest I thought a lot about building a similar device that bypassed the instinctual fear of pulling the trigger, lever, button, etc. I concluded, at least in my humble opinion and given that I live in a no-guns country, that the best option was building a guillotine. The blade drop would be controlled by a simple arduino-like device with a programmed 1 in 1000 (or really whatever you feel like, like say 1 in 6 to emulate russian roulette) chances of randomly activating 15 minutes after the user lets go of a spring actuated lever connected to the arduino thingy. The 15 minute gap is to make sure the user is asleep and didn't let go of the lever by accident. This way you could go to sleep everyday and know there is a 1 in 1M chances of never waking up, or 1 in 6 or however risky you feel like. Provided you can sleep comfortably with your neck and head in a firmly fixed possition to prevent accidents of course. If you are absolutely committed to it you can simply make it a 1 in 2, or 1 in 1 chance. That takes balls to do, so another thing I thought of was get shitfaced as hard as possible before going for eternal sleep. You'd pass out and release the lever before you could realize it.

It's not really that different from your idea though. Mine just adds a sleep/unconsciousness factor to it. If you have free access to guns you can swap the guillotine for shotguns, same principle and 100% painless and effective.

Wouldn't it be better to have it go off following a sequence of 30 min - 3 hour - 4 hour? I think 15 min may not be enough time to sleep if you consider the suicidee may be too much nervous or feeling uncomfortable due to the fact that he's sleeping in a killing machine.
>> No. 26978 [Edit]
Probably right. There are wearable sleep trackers that can tell what stage of the sleep cycle you are in, so you can improve the idea even further by programming it so it goes off during your deepest sleep instead of during REM when you might be ironically having a nightmare about dying. One of the most peaceful ways to die I think.
>> No. 26979 [Edit]
I thought rem was the deepest stage of sleep
>> No. 26980 [Edit]
No I was wrong, it's the lightest but it happens last in each sleep cycle.

who's rem?

I wish I could simply order one of these from Amazon or something. Getting it printed and assembling it myself seems like such a hassle. And it's pretty expensive.
>> No. 27032 [Edit]
>order from Amazon
You'd end up ordering a shitty Chinese knockoff design that makes you crippled instead. These things aren't single use though, so ideally some forward-thinking 3rd world country would buy a bunch and become a suicide tourist spot.

>Rem is one of the twin maids working for Roswaal L Mathers. She tends to speak in a superficially polite manner and sometimes acts without thinking. She holds both worshipping respect and guilt toward her sister for an incident in the past; because of this, Rem tends to think of herself as inferior.
