It Will Kill You AND It Smells Good!


The below quoted piece of twisted thinking was posted on an assisted suicide list serve whose members are obsessed with "self deliverance" methods (my emphasis):
If you are planning to self-deliver with helium and want to make your own "hood" but cannot find turkey-roasting bags, you might consider panettone bags. Panettone is an Italian sweet bread that is sold around Christmastime and is shipped to many places outside Italy. A one-kilogram panettone (2.2 lbs.), which comes in a box that is 7 1/2" square and 7 1/2" high (19.5 cm.) is wrapped in a very strong clear bag that measures 15" x 19" (39 cm. x 49 cm.). A plus: the bag smells wonderful (though this might no longer be true after the bag has been inflated with helium).

Meanwhile, the 2008 international convention of the World Federation of Right to Die Societies will be meeting in Paris. Hmmmm. I like Paris. Maybe I'll attend.
