If only my last two ex's would do this I could be a lot happier in life.

I think if I wanted to commit suicide, I'd go for some nice sleepytime death--Carbon Monoxide poisoning or something like that. Even if I wanted to end it all, I doubt if being ripped to shreds by reptiles would sound appealing.

burn, garfield, burn

Wow... An "A" for originality. Must have been a lot of fun for the people watching the exhibit.

I wonder if the park tried to explain it away...

Crocodile Exhibit MC: "Okay, that concludes our 1:30 show. Be sure to tell your friends. Thanks for coming."
2002-08-12 03:33:14 AM  
Man, that bites.

2002-08-12 03:38:09 AM  
Its a win-win situation for her and the croc.
2002-08-12 03:39:07 AM  
Hehehe, sounds like SOMEONE didn't read the sign:

"Do not feed the animals."
2002-08-12 03:39:26 AM  
If I had to pick a way to die, it would be in a swordfight. Seriously, how kickass would that be?
2002-08-12 03:39:47 AM  
At least there was no mess to clean up after her....
2002-08-12 03:39:55 AM  
Sounds like Thailand's team has a lock on the gold for the Women's "Being Eaten By A Crocodile" event
2002-08-12 03:40:04 AM  
Or getting the hep from Pam. That would be fun too.
2002-08-12 03:40:06 AM  
Damn it where's a picture of the croc scene in "live and let die" when you need it.
2002-08-12 03:40:51 AM  
i want to sound of on this but i can't stop laughing, does that make me a bad person ?
2002-08-12 03:41:32 AM  
Crocodile: "I swear I ordered 3 star spicy."

2002-08-12 03:42:47 AM  
What a dumbass.
2002-08-12 03:43:12 AM  
See ya later alligator!

2002-08-12 03:46:16 AM a while, crocodile!

My apologies as well
2002-08-12 03:49:15 AM  
ToeCutter: yes :P

Seriously though. Sometimes people end their lives painfully in order to induce more pain from other people. Remember, suicide is a weapon as well as an exit. By making the 'ultimate' sacrifice you show how much pain they caused to you. Sometimes people just can't bare it anymore and want a quick and easy release. Other times, people want to get 'revenge' on the people who they feel are making them unhappy. Suicide, or attempted suicide is a good way to do that, depending on the situation.

Remember the story about the Afghan women dousing themselves in gas and setting themselves on fire in order to get consessions from their husbands? Probably the same thing going on here.
2002-08-12 03:49:16 AM  
I hear there is currently a law against suicide. It should be enforced with the death penalty.
2002-08-12 03:50:41 AM  
Video plz.
2002-08-12 03:51:35 AM  
My sociology professor told us that act of suicide is a Social act, and not an individual act. Didn't make sense at the moment, because i thought that "hey wait a minute, its an individual act, beacuse its the individual who does the killing thing act, not society."

Then, I later understood that he meant social act as in, I do this act (suicide) as a way to tell society something.

For example: I throw myself into a pool of aligators because of marital problems, not because i suddendly felt the urge to jump into certain death for the hell of it.

I'm not that well informed into this part of suicide, anybody with better grammar skills than me care to contribute?
2002-08-12 03:54:01 AM  
I wonder if the crocs have as hard a time eating de-pressed meat, as I do?

Is he still giving out awards?
2002-08-12 03:55:28 AM  
I guess when she said "eat me" to anyone, she really meant it.
2002-08-12 03:55:45 AM  
Here's my question. Did the workers still have to feed the crocs after that?
2002-08-12 04:01:42 AM  
That would have been worth the admission price.
2002-08-12 04:05:34 AM  
Her last words were...

"New, ahm gonna jim moy tham in this 'ere croc's butthole...and....CRIKEY!"
2002-08-12 04:06:35 AM  
Bah, here's the link to the (better) BBC article. It includes such gems as "Just right in front of me, she just jumped into the pond without a word. The moment the crocodile grabbed her body, she even hugged onto him" and the always popular "Workers at the park were only able to look on helplessly as she was torn apart. They were finally able to retrieve her body about 20 minutes later.".
It also has two fantastic pictures that really have nothing to do with the story apart from the animal involved.... go BBC!
2002-08-12 04:07:22 AM  
She was speaking directly to her husband: "I'd rather throw myself into a pit of hungry crocodiles and be eaten alive, than ever going home to you again"
guess she told him
2002-08-12 04:15:17 AM  
This link is useless without pictures.

25 Style Points!
2002-08-12 04:32:14 AM  
Don't know if Darwin would apply here, she did it on purpose. But whatever
2002-08-12 04:40:20 AM  
I guess she jumped in the "croc pot" har har. Now I'll quietly die.
2002-08-12 04:57:45 AM  
Police said the woman had left a suicide note in which she complained about her husband and apologized to family members.

Jeez. Taking nagging to a new level.

She: "Honey... if you don't fix that leaky in the bathroom I'm going to throw myself in a pit of crocodiles!"

He: "Sure, go ahead. Better yet... wait a minute and I'll help throw you in!"
2002-08-12 05:01:12 AM

Leaky = Leak... sorry.
2002-08-12 05:03:41 AM  
Maybe she was trying to claim that carton of beer...
2002-08-12 05:17:22 AM  
Ya Think her husband is laughing his ass off?

I would be. Good riddance.

Video plz.

MUAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Way to go dude!
2002-08-12 05:50:08 AM  

Pure genius....

2002-08-12 06:11:48 AM  
I'm sorry, but I can't laugh at this one. Suicide is not funny.
2002-08-12 07:09:43 AM  
Why would anyone choose a method this potentially painful. Was she channeling Madame Bovary or what?
2002-08-12 07:54:24 AM  
Well thast's one I never considered doing.
2002-08-12 08:10:02 AM  
Well there's a story you can sink your teeth into.
That really has a lot of bite to it.
2002-08-12 08:36:19 AM  
Charoon Yangprapakorn, one of farm's executives, insisted that the park has very strict safety measures. The last suicide happened 10 years ago, but every year there have been several attempts which park officials have been able to prevent, he said.

Obviously they are missing out on a great business opportunity. They should make the first Monday of each month "Suicide Day." The suicides get in free, and everyone else pays extra.
2002-08-12 08:39:47 AM  
I kind of like it. If your going to off yourself, you ought to at least get a thrill out of it. The end result's the same. Carbon Monoxide? Bollocks.
2002-08-12 08:42:22 AM  
I felt really bad for this poor woman. I mean, how bad do things have to be before being eaten by crocodiles is preferable to the life you're leading now? What kind of a bastard was her old man, anyway? IHMO, this should have been given a [image from too old to be available] tag.

Some folks seem to go to a lot of trouble to kill themselves in the most painful way possible.

A couple of years ago, a guy in a nearby town killed himself as follows:

1. Tie a long rope to a fire hydrant or sturdy steel post (I forget which it was).

2. Drape the other end of said rope through the sliding rear window of your pickup truck, with all the slack rope in the truck bed.

3. Get in the truck, close the window, and tie the end of the rope around your neck.

4. Put that farker in gear and stomp on the gas.

5. When you get to the end of your rope, you will exit the still-accelerating truck by way of the sliding rear window, with most of you still attached to the rope.

6. Greet Jebus.
