    If it's assisted then maybe it's more succesful, though. If my dad is too weak to pull the trigger but he's decided he's ready to go, or he decided when he reached a specific point that he should be allowed to die by choice...I think I'd want to help him. Or find somebody who could...

    I think there would be daredevils/ Jackass people attempt to survive that thing to conquer the "ultimate roller coaster"

    What if you want to ride it and not die?
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    and i bet there will be like half the people on board the roller coaster changing there mind half way up, requiring it to be stopped and be returned. It'd scare the **** out of people that high.

    If I try to kill myself, I get one shot and if I fail I could be a cripple or worse for the rest of my natural life. If another man tries to kill me, he can keep trying until he gets the job done.

    I find the idea of paying someone to kill me somewhat distasteful, though.

    Re: Euthanasia Coaster - Should this be illegal?

    I think euthanasia should always be legal and readily available on request. However, dying by having one's lungs crushed, thereby depriving the brain of oxygen until one croaks is not the way I want to go out. In fact, that's is exactly the way I'm trying to avoid going out, which is why I'm in favor of euthanasia.

    Suffocation isn't bad. It's the build up of carbon dioxide in your bloodstream that's unpleasant.

    Tell me that again when you've been hooked to an oxygen tank for a few years! But yeah, carbon dioxide is a bitch too.
