Committing Suicide: What Can YOU Do?
The Supreme Court began hearing arguments on whether or not citizens of Oregon should be allowed to have their doctors give them help killing themselves. Although it is certainly a hard case deciding whether or not a private citizen has the right to use the healthcare that they pay for to help end their life, the Supreme Court will do its best. In the mean time, if you'd like to commit suicide but don't want to break any laws doing so, check out some of our tips!
- Explain to boss that you'd love to come in Sunday

- Watch VH1
This will not actually physically kill you, but will cause you to be brain dead, effectively ending your life as you know it. Bonus: your vegetative state may cause a national fervor!
- Convince friends to get in on the fun
By throwing a Suicide Party with your favorite pals, you can not only get plenty of help with your demise, but start a trend, too! Caution: only invite close friends -- you can't risk a secret enemy coming and not killing you the whole way.
