Yeppers, that'd do it.

Ever wonder what antifreeze taste like? I mean, it's a nice color and cats seem to like it.

It's kind of like the forbidden fruit drink.

Are the authorities going to prestone charges?
2003-04-03 11:19:05 AM  
And who made him drink it Mr Gates? Hmmmm ?
2003-04-03 11:47:04 AM  
Well he saved money on embalming.

The signs and symptoms of ethylene glycol poisoning are similar to alcohol intoxication. The first sign is slurred speech and a somewhat high feeling. Vomiting may occur. Later the central nervous system may become depressed, and coma can result. Congestive heart failure and fluids in and around the lungs may occur in later stages. The kidneys may stop working and death is possible.

Painful way for a guy to go. And just how are we certain that it was suicide? MS Forensics Professional Ed. 2003?
2003-04-03 04:39:44 PM  
He should've had some coolant to even things out. Oh wait, they're the same thing. Hmmm...
2003-04-03 04:40:57 PM  
Prestone or Quaker State?
2003-04-03 04:41:03 PM  
I wonder if he'll get a big blue tombstone of death.
2003-04-03 04:41:05 PM  
Hey, it sounds better than, "No officer, he fell on the knife... thirty-two times... backwards."
2003-04-03 04:41:40 PM  
Well then, I guess cryogenics is out of the picture...
2003-04-03 04:41:41 PM  
Ah yes, the old "antifreeze in the coffee" trick. It has served me well.

It's sweet which explains why animals like to lick it.
2003-04-03 04:42:50 PM  
So, how do you make antifreeze?
2003-04-03 04:42:57 PM  
I mean it's one thing to be American and steal from America, but it's quite another when you're German and you steal from America.

Or something like that
2003-04-03 04:44:24 PM  
Past the teeth, past the gums...look out stomach, here it comes.

You cut off the power to her trailer.
2003-04-03 04:45:14 PM  
They put antifreeze in the wine? That is a very serious offense.

2003-04-03 04:45:31 PM  
I'm told that anti-freeze tastes quite sweet.

Mmmmm...(poly)Ethylene Glycol.

This is what I think happaned, guy was handed a cup of blue liquid one morning after finding two friends in his house. Now dead guy says he won't drink it, friend calls him chicken and the following words are exchanged:

"Grow up. You think I'm going to drink that piss just because you call me chicken? Just hand me the cup, jerk."

and his father was heard saying:

"My son's a homosexual, and I love him! I love my dead gay son!"
2003-04-03 04:46:20 PM  
I wonder if that's a good way to kill yourself.
2003-04-03 04:47:02 PM  
LOL!! TommyymmoT, I needed that.
2003-04-03 04:47:15 PM  
thats cool, now since they didnt prove it in court that he stole and hes dead, the family now gets to keep all that neat stuff.
2003-04-03 04:47:43 PM  
Unlike most Windows users, HE was caught by the BSOD (Blue Solution of Death).

2003-04-03 04:48:04 PM  
I wonder if that'll save money on getting em-Baum-ed.

/nope. nothin' here either.
2003-04-03 04:48:22 PM  
This happened to a couple of our dogs out on the farm. Some jackass left an open container of antifreeze sitting out and two of the dogs drank it. One died within hours. The other made it through the night but died the next morning. Pretty miserable way to go.
2003-04-03 04:49:10 PM  
Well, I guess his last words weren't "Hey yall, hold my beer and watch this" after all.

The medical examiner's office could not say whether he ingested the poison intentionally.

and Microsoft isn't saying anything...

Junin: They were referring to "hull" cleaner. Why anyone would have barnacle remover in their kitchen...I dunno. But it was hull cleaner.

Better to get a friend to do it. Why risk eternal damnation just because you're having a bad day?

For morbid quiz takers: The "how would you commit suicide?" quiz

thanks. Really tiny grey fonts on a black background do make me want to kill myself.
2003-04-03 04:53:31 PM  
I guess the guy did it because he did not want to be imprestoned for 20 years.
2003-04-03 04:53:53 PM  
You know, I'm not sure, but this could be an epidemic in the Seattle area, also known as SAAS: Seattle Area Anti-Freeze Suicide

Your farkers that are partying there this weekend better be careful, don't let anyone watch your drink for you
2003-04-03 04:54:21 PM  
maybe he thought it was this...
2003-04-03 04:55:33 PM  
That sounds like how a girl I used to know would describe herself

Damn her pussy is so sweet it tastes like antifreeze!
2003-04-03 04:55:39 PM  
I think we may need a ruling on this, does anyone know if this is the first Heathers reference on Fark?

Excellent movie by the way...

In other news, Bill Gates was seen deleting howtokilwitantfrz.doc from his computer.

2003-04-03 04:56:43 PM  
If you notice anti-freeze has a "fishy" smell. I always heard that it tastes that way, so dogs and cats like it. But what do I know?
