I once had a radiator spray antifreeze in my face. It is sweet, but it still taste bad. Dogs eat out of your garbage, dont mean it taste good. I have a hard time thinking this guy drank enought to be fatal.

I thought Germans were air-cooled?

Or is that the French...

Suicide, hmmmm

Before he had his turn to chat with the Feds, the CFO of a company in Connecticut that went down in a MAJOR way (took out a few banks, city pension funds, etc.) committed "suicide" by suffocating himself in a plastic bag. Always thought and continue to think that was a bit on the suspicious side...

If his partners "assisted" him with the suicide, getting rid of him made no difference - they went to jail anyway.

my method of suicide: drowning.

sounds like murder to me.

I remember watching a show where this man's wife was murdering him, slowly.

He kept getting sicker, eventually he had to have bedrest. She would bring him chicken soup and a soft drink, where she would pour a little bit into his juice.

slowly but surely he died, and she was caught after a toxicology test shows antifreeze. The stuff isn't distinguishable by taste if done little by little.

murder

Was it really wine made by Frenchman who enslave exchange students?

 
2003-04-03 05:11:05 PM
my method of suicide: hanging.
how would you commit suicide?


Hmm, I took the quiz, and guess I would hang myself, guess it would be quicker than anti-freeze....
 
2003-04-03 05:13:24 PM
What about all the other thieves that work at Microsoft? Are they going to drink anitfreeze too?
 
2003-04-03 05:14:02 PM
I just sneezed and got snot all over the back of my hand.

Oh yeah...this dude was probably murdered.

Nostrafarkus

gotta watch out for the hanging, cuz my best friend did it, but i don't know if his neck broke; he might've just suffocated which kinda sux in-and-of itself if you ask me.

KazamaSmokers, that's harsh! I wonder how many non-New Englanders will recognize that particular Kitty?

She must have run out of rubbing alcohol.

I guess his system "encountered a fatal error". I wonder if Bill Gates will read the EULAgy?.

Damn, Ant, I was JUST about to type exactly that!

"I just killed my best friend!"
"--And your worst enemy!"
"Same difference!"
 
2003-04-03 05:22:33 PM
Sad that there is a site that reviews many methods to commit suicide.

All in all, I would say that anti-freeze wouldn't be the worst way to go compared to other methods.
 
2003-04-03 05:22:44 PM
If I was going to commit suicide, I would stand on a chair with piano wire around my neck in a noose, then shoot myself in the head so I decaptitate myself when i fall.


On second thought, I'll just make it look like a murder and frame a fellow farker.

Have a nice day. :)

Don't get me wrong, Hogans... I'm a big fan of The Duke. He would have made a great president. I just couldn't resist.
 
2003-04-03 05:24:56 PM
I know who did it.

You're joking, right? Remember Willie Horton? The downward spiral of the state budget under his leadership? A lush like his wife would have made a better choice. Politics is an area where less is more. Heading up Amtrak is a great spot for him, since it's already doomed.

Suicide quiz results:
"YOU WOULD ASPHYXIATE YOURSELF. you're smart enough to realize that death isn't something to be toyed with, but you still have the occasional suicidal impluse or desire. you are extremely cautious where it comes to self-mutilation, self-abuse, and substance abuse. if you were going to commit suicide, you'd want it to be as painless as possible."

Hmm. I'd at least jerk off while I was doing it then, I hear that's a real rush.

Clippy:
I see your trying to kill yourself, do you:
a) Live in a high building?
b) Have any antifreeze?
c) Have rubber bands and a plastic bag?
 
2003-04-03 05:52:39 PM
Just how devoted do you have to be to your obsession with automobiles for you to kill yourself by drinking antifreeze?

The world now knows.
 
2003-04-03 05:58:26 PM
Did someone pee on him singing "House on fire! House on fire! Put it out! Put it out!" I guess he didn't wake up in excruciating pain with a size 7 poop-chute either.

</old SNL reference>

OK.

For anyone curious, it tastes absolutely horrible. I mean really really bad.

It has this bitter nip to it. YUCK!

I had to drink 2 glasses of water and seek medical attention immediately.
 
2003-04-03 06:02:47 PM
Ya know, if I was out on bail and just happened that have a yacht named the Brazilian Queen. I mean, geez, this is not that difficult of a problem to solve.
 
2003-04-03 06:03:06 PM
I kinda thought working for Microsoft period would make you want to drink antifreeze.

Sorry man. I lived VERY well under The Duke. Willie Horton was a Lee Atwater boogeyman. It was the Duke who ENDED that program. He's an honest guy as politicians come, and a smart one at that. Boy, imagine that? A smart man in the oval office? Haven't seen that in years!

But hey, I liked Bill Weld too, so what do I know?

Wrong. The glycol part of "ethylene glycol" makes it very sweet. One of the reasons to keep it away from pets.

Placing a container (saucer) of ethylene glycol on the back porch for stray cats, is acceptable.

(I hope my Nomex suit is back from the cleaner)

Have you ever personally tasted it? "Sweet" does NOT mean "good". I've tasted shampoos that were "sweet", but awful at the same time.

Oh, and fark You for the cats comment.
 
2003-04-03 06:42:35 PM
Anybody who kills one of my pets by deliberately putting antifreeze out for them to find will have his knees and elbows broken by yours truely.
 
2003-04-03 06:55:32 PM
Oh great, yet another anti-freeze nut stages a "die-in". Thanks to FARK, we're stuck with another anti-freeze/pro-freeze flame war.
 
2003-04-03 07:04:18 PM
All his assetts had been frozen and he was trying to make them liquid again.

Does anyone remember the URL of this guy's website? I doubt it is still up, but it was pretty crazy. Mostly boasting about his toys and how wonderful his life was. Strange dude.

Alton -- "Ever wonder what antifreeze taste like?"

You're obviously a young 'un, Alton! When you're my age and get to "enjoy" a colonoscopy:

One of the ingredients in the stuff they give you to drink the night-before contains the same thing they put in anti-freeze... not the tastiest beverage I ever swallowed!

To all Farkers over the age of 50: "Bottoms-up!"
