Brando Pesticide has electrolytes, it's what suicidal people crave.

General: "What's the problem here?"

lackey: "Sir, the opponents of our government are poisoning themselves!"

General: *blink, blink* "Well then, carry on."

Is there any way we can convince both the Tea Party and Westboro Baptist that this is the best protest method known to man?

Because sometimes in China it's so impossible to get an issue addressed (like being raped) that despite filing all the numerous paperwork they keep demanding, they will actually have you beaten, will threaten you and your family and continually assert that you should drop this shiat.

Sometimes some people want their issues to be heard so badly, they feel they have no recourse but to draw attention to it by self harm, or suicide. This is hardly a rare occurrence.

And people continue to do it because sometimes it actually works. The attention is drawn, and justice dispensed.

Actually to be serious about it, at least some of these people are probably already dying from cancer.  Acute poisoning would just kill them faster, AND get media attention.  It's a win-win if you're farked and the government doesn't care.

No, there are no toilets in China, just holes in the floor.

Agreed.  In theory there is justice over there but without a free press there's little that can be done to hold corrupt officials accountable.
