Two months ago, a former minister of health was found murdered at her home. She had a major hand in reforming the Dutch health services to the bureaucratic money devouring monstrosity that it is now. She was also a member of Europhile political party Democrats '66.

I'm not saying the two events are related, but it is a bit of a coincidence.

RobSeace: buzzgoat: RobSeace: buzzgoat: given that if a man were determined to off himself, keeping the garage closed with a running car would have been a much more merciful and painless way to get the job done.

Supposedly with modern cars with catalytic converters, that's a lot harder to pull off these days, because the CO output is negligible...

The CO is much lower, but with out an outside source of fresh air, the O2 would be depleted just the same.

And, if your garage were sealed completely airtight, that might mean something... But, I suspect most garages are a bit less hermetically sealed...


I have a feeling that the consumption of O2 by the engine would out pace a modern garages air leaks. And as most of the exaust constituents are heavier than air (due to the suspended burnt fuel molecules) the engine would continue to purr until the O2 levels were at about 4%. Humans suffer greatly when it drops below 8% and even without the buildup of CO2, NO, CH3 and CO the occupants of said car would fall asleep, then slip away in light headed bliss due to O2 deprevation.

If you're truly interested, no, that isn't what I'm talking about. I'm talking about foreign real estate. Not as an investment vehicle in and of itself, but as a platform for wealth creation (viable homestead). Do your own research to find out where, since the things you're interested in might not be the things I'm interested in. Also, non-perishable goods and supplies like dry beans, booze, wheat, toilet paper, clothes, shoes, etc. Better if you can get them locally-produced. I'm also pretty high on Commemorative Elvis plates. Those things are better than gold.

Funny how cash can be both all-important and worthless, depending on what you need it to be to support your argument. But being imaginary doesn't make it harmless, and cash, like law, is actually as cold and hard as the people that enforce its value.

/the problem with the economy isn't that the bankers are too mean, but because they are being forced - literally at gunpoint - to be too nice
//the value of the money, like the rule of law, softens as people try to force it to be kinder than it was ever meant to be
///and, like the new "social justice" replacing actual justice, the end result will be societal collapse, not social progress

FarkinNortherner: way south: The money men are looking at a choice between poverty, prison, or being shoved up against a wall by some angry militia.

Dream on. Money owns politics and the media. Politics controls force and the media directs both politics and public opinion. Short of a full-scale revolution the position of the wealthy in developed countries is as secure as it's ever been.




You can buy power and overwhelming force to keep the populace at bay.
You can pay the media to fudge numbers and appease the poor with handouts.
With the right payouts you can script new laws regardless of what a constitution or treaty demands.

The question is what happens when the money runs out and you can't afford to keep truth in a cage anymore.

Our vice has always been in playing games with credit. Sooner or later the bluff gets called and the wealthy become poor again.
Some will outlast this of course. Having wealth allows you to hedge your bets.
Others have built their castles on on a foundation of sand.

/still, my first bet is this is stress related and those rich farkers are taking SSRIs and other head candies.
/the world will fall apart eventually. Let's just hope it's not now.

jaybeezey: Ilmarinen: Fart_Machine: So by "family tragedy" are we talking murder/suicide or someone left the oven on.

In Dutch media it usually means the former.

And regardless of what scumbags these bankers may or may not be, if a parent killing their spouse and children and themselves makes you feel better, there's something quite wrong with you.

On FARK, compassion is for the weak.

On FARK, one revels and delights in the misery of one that has been deemed to have been a 1%er.

On FARK, the only victory is to crush your enemies and to hear the Lamentations of their women.


And that last thing is the exact and only reason why he is against everyone feeling good about this banker killing his wive and hot 22-year-old daughter, we can't hear their Lamentations when they're dead.

Oh, I'm sure it can still work in some cases, but I just don't think it's as reliable or fast and painless as it used to be in the old days... I'm pretty sure we've seen stories right here on Fark about such attempted and failed suicides... Or, sometimes an attempted and failed murder... (Though, apparently if you are farking and also have a kerosene heater running in the enclosed garage, you can pull it off...)

In any case, not a recommended activity... But, if I were going for painless suicide, I'd look into alternative methods these days, or at least would rip off the catalytic converter first...
 
2014-04-07 09:32:55 AM  

Public Savant: buzzgoat:

More likely, the suiciders are just realizing that they've done shiatty things and can't cope lie their way out anymore.


FTFY

Yours is a good assumption, I just think these particular suicides have more to do with 'getting caught' and fracturing of their cognitive dissonance, taking the cowards' exit. (I don't think this about suicide in general, it's a much more complex subject.)

The word 'cope' implies they are in some way moral, empathetic or emotional, which if they had been, they may have stopped short before reaching a state of needing to off themselves. Also: He who takes the family with him gets a special farking ring of hell to lather in as far as I'm concerned.

In this demographic however, in which scrutiny of possible misdeed(s) are coming to light, I think the consistency of the actions are hideous, and point to a bit of a culturally-reinforced moral vacuum - these people have isolated themselves in their thinking to the point they surround themselves with only others who are involved in the same shady practices, it's not like you have a moral framework of peers are going to be supportive of you in your crises. A lemming effect, possibly.

It could be I'm just a biatchy cynic, though.

I'm just saing that the 7 nails in the chest, or whatever seem a little out of place and set off my BS meter. It's a fact that more women attempt suicide, but more men acomplish their attempt. Mainly due to the fact that men use more lethal things, guns, heights etc.. Nail gun to the temple, 1 shot as a botched attempt would be more likely, to the base of the skull, although awkward, would be much more sure to get the job done.

There's no telling whats going on here with these bankers. It might be a coincidence, or due to conscience, or worse (for example, they see something so terrible, they can't handle it).

i read an article about this a few years ago. basically with any modern car you will get nauseous and sick from the CO2 build-up well before you'd run out of oxygen or die from CO poisoning. most people were doubtful a person would be able to deal with it long enough to get to that point. it's up there with overdosing on tylenol as far as stupid ways to kill yourself.
