FullMetalPanda: So do people go splat or not?  How high do you have to jump to go splat?

Remember that picture of that dead jumper lady that looked like she was happy and sleeping?  How far did she drop from to not go splat?  Or was it because of the car roof?  But weren't cars made of actual steel back then so shouldn't she still would have gone splat if she jumped from high enough?

The only true "splats" I know of are from those that had to jump from the World Trade Center in 2001. Otherwise, most of the "splat" happens inside the body.

This is why I think we should have euthanasia laws. If you're that distressed, uncomfortable and unhappy, well, you should be allowed to leave. Without the disturbing splat.
