    If you were to kill yourself, how would you do it?

    Personally, I would down a bottle of sleeping pills, down a bottle of wine, and drift off into a never-ending sleep.

    I would go to a venue that I really despise, stab myself in the aorta, bleed to death rather quickly, and "die laughing" at the fact that they have to clean up the mess. icon_twisted.gif

    I never think about things like this. When someone asks me questions like this, kinda freaks me out, hard to even talk about.

    I think it's perfectly normal and rational to think about such things.
    Without thinkers like this, we would have no "gore" movies on the big screen. icon_wink.gif

    I have no problem with most gory movies. Hell, I even liked Tokyo Gore Police.

    What I mean is, I never think about killing myself, like never. When someone who means something to me talks about it, even in a hypothetical way, I think wow, if he can think about it, I guess he could do it - which gets me sad and a little freaked out.

    “I was an intern at Nickelodeon Studios for a year in 2005 for my degree in animation. It wasn’t paid of course, most internships aren’t, but it did have some perks beyond education. To adults it might not seem like a big one, but most kids at the time would shit themselves over it. Since I worked directly with the editors and animators, I got to view the new episodes days before they aired.”
    “I’ll get right to it without giving too many unnecessary details. They had very recently made the Spongebob movie and the entire staff was somewhat sapped of creativity so it took them longer to start up the season. But the delay lasted longer for more upsetting reasons. There was a problem with the series 4 premier that set everyone and everything back for several months.”
    “Me and two other interns were in the editing room along with the lead animators and sound editors for the final cut. We received the copy that was supposed to be “Fear of a Krabby Patty” and gathered around the screen to watch. Now, given that it isn’t final yet animators often put up a mock title card, sort of an inside joke for us, with phony, often times lewd titles, such as “How sex doesn’t work” instead of “Rock-a-by-Bivalve” when spongebob and patrick adopt a sea scallop. Nothing particularly funny but work related chuckles. So when we saw the title card “Squidward’s Suicide” we didn’t think it more than a morbid joke. One of the interns did a small throat laugh at it. The happy-go-lucky music plays as is normal.”
    “The story began with Squidard practicing his clarinet, hitting a few sour notes like normal. We hear Spongebob laughing outside and Squidard stops, yelling at him to keep it down as he has a concert that night and needs to practice. Spongebob says okay and goes to see Sandy with with Patrick. The bubbles splash screen comes up and we see the ending of Squidward’s concert. This is when things began to seem off. While playing, a few frames repeat themselves, but the sound doesn’t (at this point sound is synced up with animation so yes that’s not common) but when he stops playing, the sound finishes as if the skip never happened. There is slight mummuring in the crowed before they begin to boo him. Not normal cartoon booing that is common in the show, but you could very clearly hear malace in it. Squidward’s in full frame and looks visibly afraid. The shot goes to the crowd, with Spongebob in center frame, and he too is booing, very much unlike him. That isn’t the oddest thing, though. What is odd is everyone had hyper realistic eyes. Very detailed. Clearly not shots of real people’s eyes, but something a bit more real than CGI. The pupils were red. Some of us looked at eachother, obviously confused, but since we weren’t the writers we didn’t question its appeal to children, yet.”
    “The shot goes to Squidward sitting on the edge of his bed, looking very forlorn. The view out of his porthole window is of a night sky so it isn’t very long after the concert. The unsettling part is at this point there is no sound. Literally no sound. Not even the feedback from the speakers in the room. It’s as if the speakers were turned off, though their status showed them working perfectly. He just sat there, blinking, in this silence for about 30 seconds, then he started to sob softly. He put his hands (tentacles) over his eyes and cried quietly for a full minute more, all the while a sound in the background very slowly growing from nothing to barely audible. It sounded like a slight breeze through a forest.”
    “The screen slowly begins to zoom in on his face. By slow I mean it’s only noticeable if you look at shots 10 seconds apart side by side. His sobbing gets louder, more full of hurt and anger. The screen then twitches a bit, as if it twists in on itself, for a split second then back to normal. The wind-through-the-trees sound gets slowly louder and more severe, as if a storm is brewing somewhere. The eerie part is this sound, and Squidward’s sobbing, sounded real, as if the sound wasn’t coming from the speakers but as if the speakers were holes the sound was coming through from the other side. As good as sound as the studio likes to have, they don’t purchase the equipment to be that good to produce sound of that quality.”
    “Below the sound of the wind and sobbing, very faint, something sounded like laughing. It came at odd intervals and never lasted more than a second so you had a hard time pinning it (we watched this show twice, so pardon me if things sound too specific but I’ve had time to think about them). After 30 seconds of this, the screen blurred and twitched violently and something flashed over the screen, as if a single frame was replaced. The lead animation editor paused and rewound frame by frame. What we saw was horrible. It was a still photo of a dead child. He couldn’t have been more than 6. The face was mangled and bloodied, one eye dangling over his upturned face, popped. He was naked down to his underwear, his stomach crudely cut open and his entrails laying beside him. He was laying on some pavement that was probably a road. The most upsetting part was that there was a shadow of the photographer. There was no crime tape, no evidence tags or markers, and the angle was completely off for a shot designed to be evidence. It would seem the photographer was the person responsible for the child’s death.”
    “We were of course mortified, but pressed on, hoping that it was just a sick joke. The screen flipped back to Squidward, still sobbing, louder than before, and half body in frame. There was now what appeard to be blood running down his face from his eyes. The blood was also done in a hyper realistic style, looking as if you touched it you’d get blood on your fingers. The wind sounded now as if it were that of a gale blowing through the forest; there were even snapping sounds of branches. The laughing, a deep baritone, lasting at longer intervals and coming more frequently. After about 20 seconds, the screen again twisted and showed a single frame photo. The editor was reluctant to go back, we all were, but he knew he had to. This time the photo was that of what appeared to be a little girl, no older than the first child. She was laying on her stomach, her barrettes in a pool of blood next to her. Her left eye was too popped out and popped, naked except for underpants. Her entrails were piled on top of her above another crude cut along her back. Again the body was on the street and the photographer’s shadow was visible, very similar in size and shape to the first. I had to choke back vomit and one intern, the only female in the room, ran out.”

    “The show resumed. About 5 seconds after this second photo played, Squidward went silent, as did all sound, like it was when this scene started. He put his tentacles down and his eyes were now done in hyper realism like the others were in the beginning of this episode. They were bleeding, bloodshot, and pulsating. He just stared at the screen, as if watching the viewer. After about 10 seconds, he started sobbing, this time not covering his eyes. The sound was piercing and loud, and most fear inducing of all is his sobbing was mixed with screams. Tears and blood were dripping down his face at a heavy rate. The wind sound came back, and so did the deep voiced laughing, and this time the still photo lasted for a good 5 frames. The animator was able to stop it on the 4th and backed up. This time the photo was of a boy, about the same age, but this time the scene was different. The entrails were just being pulled out from a stomach wound by a large hand, the right eye popped and dangling, blood trickling down it. The animator proceeded. It was hard to believe, but the next one was different but we couldn’t tell what. He went on to the next, same thing. He want back to the first and played them quicker and I lost it. I vomited on the floor, the animating and sound editors gasping at the screen. The 5 frames were not as if they were 5 different photos, they were played out as if they were frames from a video. We saw the hand slowly lift out the guts, we saw the kid’s eyes focus on it, we even saw two frames of the kid beginning to blink. The lead sound editor told us to stop, he had to call in the creator to see this. Mr. Hillenburg arrived within about 15 minutes. He was confused as to why he was called down there, so the editor just continued the episode.”

    “Once the few frames were shown, all screaming, all sound again stopped. Squidward was just staring at the viewer, full frame of the face, for about 3 seconds. The shot quickly panned out and that deep voice said “DO IT” and we see in Squidward’s hands a shotgun. He immediately puts the gun in his mouth and pulls the trigger. Realistic blood and brain matter splatters the wall behind him, and his bed, and he flies back with the force. The last 5 seconds of this episode show his body on the bod, on his side, one eye dangling on what’s left of his head above the floor, staring blankly at it. Then the episode ends.”

    “Mr Hillenburg is obviously angry at this. He demanded to know wht the hell was going on. Most people left the room at this point, so it was just a handful of us to watch it again. Viewing the episode twice only served to imprint the entirety of it in my mind and cause me horrible nightmares. I’m sorry I stayed.”

    “The only theory we could think of was the file was edited by someone in the chain from the drawing studio to here. The CTO was called in to analyze when it happened. The analysis of the file did show it was edited over by new material. However, the timestamp of it was a mere 24 seconds before we began viewing it. All equipment involved was examined for foreign software and hardware as well as glitches, as if the time stamp may have glitched and showed the wrong time, but everything checked out fine. We don’t know what happened and to this day nobody does. There was an investigation due to the nature of the photos, but nothing came of it. No child seen was identified and no clues were gathered from the data involved nor physical clues in the photos. I never believed in unexplainable phenomena before, but now that I have something happen and can’t prove anything about it beyond anecdotal evidence, I think twice about things.”

    But just for the record, please don't. You wouldn't want to freak me out.

    Sigh. Would be a nice way to go, if I really have to.

    A public service announcement:

    1. Overdosing does not work. It is expensive to find the good drugs and combinations. You will be found and you will live with possible renal failure making your life more miserable and there will be vomited activated charcoal all over the medical personnel who will not be impressed. Using sleeping pills is also not funny. Gastric lavage may have to be performed on you. It is painful for you and the physician.

    2. Slitting wrist does not work.You will need to cut the radial and ulnar arteries or cut radial artery lengthwise. It's messy. You won't do it correctly, and it is a painful and slow death assuming you are not found within a few hours. While stabbing aorta is an extremely effective method to kill self. It is painful and the aorta is hidden very deeply within the body. You will faint from pain before reaching it. A better place to stab is femoral artery.

    3. Leap off at least a good 7 story building has worked in my experience. Usually, unless you're jumping on concrete or sharp objects like rocks-which people sometimes fail to account for, a 3-story building is not enough.

    4.Jump in front of fast moving vehicle. Trains work best. Too much hassle though.

    5.Consume poison like hemlock. Other more effective poisons like cyanide, botulinum, ricin, and anthrax are difficult to find-This is the most impressive way to die. Philosophical and elegant yet effective.

    6.When shooting self in the head, point gun right where your neck meets your face. Temple shots sometimes don't work and cause vision problems. Depending on type of gun, forehead shot doesn't work as bullet may become lodged in skull-very, very painful.

    This post was meant in jest to provide giggles. Please seek help if you want to commit suicide.

    I heard that sleeping pills will work if you take a lot and mix them with alcohol.

    It depends on the person. If they regularly consume sleeping pills, this method is less effective. If they regularly consume alcohol, it is less effective. Also depends on size and gender. More often than not, the body effectively deals with most of the poison by vomiting. People are found before too much nervous system damage occurs. The good drug combinations are expensive.

    Most people who commit suicide warn others beforehand. People are more likely to watch them and the person will be found.

    More often than not, this method is not effective. You will live and your stomach and kidneys and liver will not thank you. You will be stuck in psychiatric ward with all the other crazies.

    Overall, it is just a sad, sad way to die. It also does not impress others as it is not particularly gruesome or clever.

    I'd probably drop everything and just trek off to the wilderness "Into The Wild" style (although suicide wasn't his intent).

    I had a teacher in high school assign to us a year-long project where we were to write down 100 things we'd like to do in our life before we died. But he said the 100th thing on our list could be how we want to die.

    I'd want to spontaneously combust while hanging over the Virgin Store sign in Times Square, raining sparkling glass and bloody debris down onto the bystanders below. icon_twisted.gif

    I don't think of killing myself and I will never kill myself.

    If anyone decides to do so, please don't jump in front of a train or tube or whatever, it's frustrating when you're off to school and your train/tube gets delayed.

    OMG talk about being a twisted Drama queen.

    One assumes if you found out you have 24 hours of life left you would wreak havoc and take others with you; just to help you feel better.icon_rolleyes.gif
