Edgar R. Fitzgerald 4086 Sumner Street Santa Monica, CA 90401
High-priced defense attorney Alan Dershowitz has joined the legal team for three Michigan residents accused of conducting female genital mutilation on two young Minnesota girls.
This is the first such case prosecuted in the United States. The defense team is expected to make a two-pronged argument, saying that what happened to the girls does not qualify as “female genital mutilation” but was instead “legal and benign.” Moreover, they are expected to argue that the practice is constitutionally protected as a religious practice.
Dr. Jumana Nagarwala, along with Dr. Fakrhuddin Attar and his wife, Farida, belong to the Detroit-area Dawoodi Bohra community, a sect of Shiite Islam with more than a million adherents worldwide.
The Dawoodi Bohra’s religious leader, Syedna Muffadal Saifuddin, endorsed female genital mutilation at a Mumbai mosque last year, saying it “needs to be done.”
Dershowitz, whose past clients include Jeffrey Epstein, Jack Kevorkian and O.J. Simpson, was retained by the Dawat-e-Hadiyah, an international organization that serves as the administrative arm for the Dawoodi Bohra community, the Detroit News reported.
The trial will begin on Oct. 10 in a Detroit federal court. The two doctors face up to life in prison if they’re convicted, while Farida Attar, Fakhruddin’s wife, could serve 20 years. All three are currently being held without bond after it was determined they are a flight risk.
A central legal question will be whether the procedure—also known as “khatna” or “female circumcision”—harmed the two seven-year-old Minnesota girls.
Because male circumcision is not deemed harmful and can have health benefits, it is not unlawful. In contrast, courts have historically ruled against parents deemed to have caused their children harm when adhering to a religious practice, such as Jehovah’s Witnesses who denied their children medical care.
Shannon Smith, a defense attorney for Nagarwala, has said that instead of mutilating the girl’s genitals, her client used a “scraper” to wipe off a portion of the mucus membrane around their clitorises. The practice did not cause harm and had cultural and religious significance, she said.
But the World Health Organization said the practice has no health benefits. And according to the 11-page complaint filed against Nagarwala, one of the seven-year-old girls described screaming, feeling “pain all the way down to her ankle” and scarcely being able to walk after the procedure.
At a May hearing, U.S. Magistrate Elizabeth Stafford denied bond to Fakhruddin and Farida Attar, calling their religious defense “a shield,” the Detroit Free Press reported.
“It is important to me … to take religion out of it and focus on the allegations that young girls’ genitals were mutilated and that the defendants played a role. … I think it’s common knowledge that the cutting of the genitalia of a 7-year-old child would be painful. I find this to be a serious crime,” Stafford said.
Don't bother whether your sex is legal or illegal. Just go for it. Because the eternal life of your soul depends on whether your sex is good enough on earth.

Wondering how to have the best night ever with your darling? It's no secret that cannabis relaxes you and makes everything feel like all is right with the world, but did you know it can actually make sex better?
Yes, marijuana actually has the power to improve your sex life! We all know getting high is fun, and actually has some health benefits, but throw in a few ultra-intense orgasms and it's a crazy that everyone isn't smoking every single day.
Haters love to say that cannabis is a gateway drug (it's not), that it's super addictive (it's not), and that it ruins your life (it doesn't).
Cannabis really is a beautiful thing. It makes you feel amazing and, yet, you never get a hangover like you do with booze.
By now you must be wondering, how can it possibly make sex better?
Let me blow your mind with the enlightening and ever-so-tantalizing facts about cannabis and your sex life.
1. Cannabis can help you achieve orgasms
A lot of women have trouble achieving orgasms. In fact, about 1 in 3 women find it very difficult to orgasm during sex.
Luckily, your old pal pot is here to save the day. And here's how:
The CB1 is the brain's receptor that is affected when we smoke cannabis. When this receptor is activated, we get randy, baby.
As Dr. Mitch Earleywine, professor of psychology at the State University of New York at Albany told NY Mag: "That CB1 receptor seems to be involved in improved tactile sensations and general euphoria." Meaning cannabis has the power to enhance your physical stimulation and give you a serious body high.
2. Cannabis increases sexual stamina
Who doesn't want to last longer in bed? You become the superman of sexual partners when you introduce it into the picture. According to a study cited on About, 75% of participants reported an increase in the duration of their sexual encounters when they smoked cannabis beforehand.
3. Cannabis makes orgasms more intense
You know what is better than an orgasm? A really, really intense, earth-shattering, life-altering orgasm. Cannabis has the power to make your orgasmic experience unbelievably mind-blowing.
As a marijuana loving man noted to NY Mag's Maureen O'Connor, "Pot tends to make time move slowly for me. Orgasms seem to last for 30 seconds and are incredibly intense. The best orgasms I've ever had have been while stoned, whether with another person or solo."
Unlike with alcohol, which can take the wind out of your sexy sails, cannabis actually does the opposite. It strengthens it!
4. Cannabis is good for relationships
Couples who smoke together are couples who fight the least. It would appear that marijuana might be the key ingredient to having a happy, healthy relationship with your partner.
According to The Daily Mail, the use of cannabis in relationships is actually linked to lower rates of domestic violence. "Findings suggest that marijuana use is predictive of lower levels of aggression towards one's partner."
According to the Washington Post, the University of Buffalo studied over 600 couples ranging as far back as 1996 and found that couples who smoke cannabis really do fight less.
It brings couples closer because it chills people out. No one wants to have an argument when they're feeling mad mellow and relaxed.
5. Cannabis is an aphrodisiac
It has long been known as an aphrodisiac. It has the power to enhance sexual desire.
Psychiatrist, Dr. Lester Grinspoon told High Times that cannabis "greatly enhances the sexual experience for many people. There's no doubt that when people are high, they're more sensitive to their sexual feelings and urges."
So, next time instead of eating oysters with bae to get in the mood, smoke a joint instead. But maybe still have the oysters because we all know the munchies are a real struggle.
6. Cannabis relieves tension
Everyone knows that smoking cannabis has the ability to relieve your aching anxieties. This can be especially useful when you're about to get naked.
It can relax you and put you in the right mindset to get it on. All the horrible sexual tension that plagued you suddenly washes away, leaving you relaxed and ready.
According to Medical Daily, marijuana is like nature's Xanax: "It has a calming and relaxing effect that must be associated with decreased anxiety."
The effect marijuana has on the brain can be used to treat chronic anxiety problems. Cannabis can "exert an effect on stress levels through the endocannabinoid system, which regulates pain and appetite. THC interacts with anandamide, which is a neurotransmitter, creating a happy, relaxed feeling, as well as sleepiness."
So, after you decide to indulge, you're going to be ready to indulge in a little more fun once that old Mary Jane kicks in. When you're high, you're relaxed - and relaxed sex is good sex.

DANNIELLA WESTBROOK has gone through many highs and lows in the spotlight, but today she took things a step further.
The actress happily filmed herself undergoing "designer vagina" surgery live from the operating table for her Snapchat followers.
Insisting the op was far from painful, the 43-year-old beamed at the camera as she talked her fans through the procedure.
"Just another normal day in my crazy world, the life of Danniella Westbrook. No longer is it Snachat but Snatchchat… getting ready for that designer vagina people," she commented.
Danniella looked very comfortable as she continued: "The thing is, when you're having this laser done - this designer vagina - everyone thinks it's going to really hurt. It don't!
"I'm currently having my treatment right now… I'm not a wimp," she continued before cutting to a female companion.
Wearing a grey hooded top, Danniella seemed calm and upbeat as she added: "And, there we have it, I've finished the 20-minute laser treatment. Time to get going."
The star appeared well despite recently splitting from boyfriend George Arnold - prompting a cocaine relapse and a suicide attempt.
Speaking recently on This Morning, Danniella revealed: "I did relapse, I thought my whole world was over when he walked out, because he just got up and it was like he’d never been there.
"I tried to overdose a lot when George walked out, but it just turns out he never had a girlfriend before me, so it all unravels - it was very difficult."
Meanwhile, Danniella's procedure comes just weeks after Sinitta announced she was set to front a new show focusing on vaginal surgeries - including her own.
The destruction of the Western World will not be achieved by suicide bombers but by arsonists. Suicide bombers are a waste of human resources because the dedication of just one suicide bomber could set hundreds of square kilometers of forests on fire. And the personal risk? A comfortable prison sentence of just a few years.

Opinions surrounding intraoperative awareness may vary, but one thing is certain, even a single case is one too many.
The clinical definition of intraoperative awareness — consciousness during general anesthesia — is a seemingly simple explanation for a complex, and controversial, phenomenon. Opinions surrounding how often intraoperative awareness, also described as anesthesia awareness, occurs, its implications for victims, as well as the best methods for prevention are varied.
But for Carol Weihrer, the issue is crystal clear. Weihrer, who claims she was conscious during a 1998 surgical procedure to remove her right eye, believes that anesthesia awareness is more widespread and debilitating than people realize. And she has the proof, she says, to back-up her claim.
“I have spoken to thousands of people with experiences similar to mine,” said Weihrer. “People like me, whose lives have been turned upside down because of it.”
As founder of the international Anesthesia Awareness Campaign, Weihrer’s goal is to educate the public about the phenomenon and to be a touchstone for other victims.
Weihrer is also lobbying for the mandated use of brain function monitors for patients undergoing general anesthesia. She believes that until these monitors become a standard of care, patients must be proactive in protecting themselves in the OR. “It’s not enough to ask whether a facility has brain function monitors or whether they use them. You must demand that they use them on you during your surgery,” she explained.
Tracking brain waves When used in the OR, brain function monitors reportedly measure a patient’s depth of anesthesia and level of consciousness. One of the most popular tools for this purpose is bispectral index (BIS) technology.
Aspect Medical’s BIS monitor involves measuring the brain’s electrical activity through a sensor placed on the patient’s forehead. The BIS value ranges from 100 (indicating an awake patient) to zero (indicating the absence of brain activity). This information is used to guide administration of anesthetic medication. Aspect’s BIS technology is available as a stand-alone monitor or as a module that can be incorporated into other manufacturers’ monitoring systems.
Irene Osborn, M.D., associate professor of Anesthesiology, Mount Sinai School of Medicine, New York, and director, Division of Neuroanesthesia, began using BIS technology in 1996 while at NYU Medical Center and currently uses it in about 80 percent of the surgeries she performs. She says it has definitely made an impact on her ability to care for patients.
“The ability to monitor the brain really helps you improve anesthetic care,” said Dr. Osborn. “There is variability in patients’ response to anesthesia — not everyone requires the same dose or concentration,” she continued. “With BIS, I can separate out the different components of anesthesia and determine how much anesthetic is needed for a particular patient.”
Dr. Osborn uses BIS technology to improve the quality of anesthesia and also to monitor for awareness. Often times Versed is administered just prior to surgery to produce amnesia. With the BIS monitor, Dr. Osborn says she can see the effects of the Versed dose and increase it if necessary.
“In the OR there is a lot of monitoring going on — heart rate, blood pressure and various body systems. With BIS, I can also monitor the brain,” Dr. Osborn said.
Not ready for prime time? The American Society of Anesthesiology’s (ASA) “Practice Advisory for Intraoperative Awareness and Brain Function Monitoring” makes several recommendations to assist decision-making for patient care with the goal of reducing awareness, but stops short of mandating the use of brain function monitors for this purpose. Instead, the ASA advises anesthesiologists to use their own discretion when it comes to using the monitors.
Although she personally chooses to use brain function monitoring, Dr. Osborn understands why many of her colleagues have yet to embrace it.
“Brain function monitoring technology is not yet good enough, it’s not real time,” explained Dr. Osborn. “What you see on the monitor reflects something that happened 15 seconds ago.”
Others may simply not want to take the time to understand the monitors. If, for example, there was no muscle relaxant administered to the patient, there may be EMG artifact on the monitor and anesthesiologists must be familiar in working around that, says Dr. Osborn. The monitor will not predict movement, rather, it tells how asleep the patient is.
At Mount Sinai, Dr. Osborn estimates that one-third of the physicians use the technology quite frequently, one-third use it for special cases and one-third refuse to use it at all. She does believe, however, that brain function monitors will become standard operating procedure in all hospitals in about 10 years.
“As the technology matures and as we train another generation of anesthesiologists and nurse anesthetists on how to use it, more will want it and the timing will be right for it to become a standard of care,” Dr. Osborn said.
Determined that this is the case — sooner rather than later — Weihrer has taken her Anesthesia Awareness Campaign on the road, speaking both nationally and internationally to physician groups and other organizations. She has performed Grand Rounds, speaking to anesthesia staff at several East Coast hospitals about her own and others’ experiences. She has worked with The Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO), American Association of periOperative Nurses (AORN) and the American Association of Nurse Anesthetists (AANA), and says she is currently collaborating with the ASA on an anesthesia awareness victims database. MedicAlert bracelets are available through the campaign for patients who have suffered awareness in the past or have a familial disposition to anesthesia awareness.
“The Anesthesia Awareness Campaign is definitely gaining momentum,” Weihrer said. “The public is becoming more involved and demanding assurances.”
Weihrer says she will continue to advocate for change in the OR until her efforts are no longer needed — until brain function monitors are used on every general anesthesia patient and there are no more anesthesia awareness victims.

This post from Natalie Engelbrecht, psychotherapist, naturopathic doctor, and researcher, originally appeared on Quora as an answer to the question, "Why do we kiss?"
The scientific study of kissing is called “philematology” (philos in ancient Greek = earthly love). During a kiss, couples exchange 9 mg of water, 0.7 mg of protein, 0.18 mg of organic compounds, 0.71 mg of fats, and 0.45 mg of sodium chloride, along with 10 million to 1 billion bacteria according to one estimate
Kisses use as little as two muscles, burning only 2 to 3 calories, while passionate kissing involves up to 34 facial muscles along with 112 postural muscles and burns around 26 calories per minute.
The original theory was that primate mothers chewed their food for their babies. However, as evolution continued the kiss began to be used to pass on information regarding biological compatibility of a mate via pheromone chemical signals as well as promote social bonding and expressing love, with the ultimate goal of procreation.
With the kiss, partners are able to get close enough to each other to assess essential characteristics about each other, none of which are consciously processed. Although the vomeronasal organs—which are responsible for pheromone detection and brain function in animals—are thought to be vestigial and inactive in humans. Research indicates we do communicate with chemicals.
One study found that when women were asked to smell T-shirts of different men and choose their favourite, the choice was not made randomly but was based on the man whose major histo-compatibility complex (MHC)—a series of genes involved in the males immune system—was different from their own. The importance of this is that different MHCs mean less immune overlap which indicates more healthy offspring.
While men are not selective in terms of kissing, women are very choosy. This is because on an evolutionary level women were looking for a mate to raise their offspring with, and kissing could be an unconscious but accurate way for women to assess the immune compatibility of a mate, before she invests too much time and energy in him.
While males will have sex with women without kissing them beforehand as well as have sex with a woman who is not a good kisser, most women will never have sex without kissing first. Men tend to initiate French kissing and research suggests this is because saliva contains testosterone and this increases the sex drive of their mate. Furthermore, men are able to sense a woman’s level of estrogen which is a predictor of her fertility.
“There is evidence that saliva has testosterone in it,” said Rutgers University anthropologist Helen Fisher, “and testosterone increases sex drive. And there is evidence that men like sloppier kisses with more open mouth. That suggests they are unconsciously trying to transfer testosterone to stimulate sex drive in women.”
Hormone levels change after kissing. Specifically cortisol (stress) levels decreased in men and women after kissing, and the longer a couple is together the lower their stress hormones get. Interestingly oxytocin levels increase in men, however women’s levels decreased.
One theory is that women need more than a kiss to stimulate attachment and bonding. Kissing raises testosterone which increases sex drive, and also increases dopamine promoting romantic love, and oxytocin (men only) which promotes bonding.
Other benefits includes a modest increase in blood pressure and heart rate which helps our cardiac health, increased saliva produced during active kissing which helps to prevent tooth decay, and men who kiss their wives in the morning live 5 years longer on average and also make more money.

The current invasion of Europe by “refugees” from the Middle East, North Africa, and Asia is engineered and enabled by politicians (with the exception of Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban), without the support of Europe’s peoples. That raises the obvious question: Why are European politicians promoting what Buchanan, Orban and any person (whose mind hasn’t been turned into mush by PC propaganda) so clearly see — the systematic destruction, via demographics, of European civilization and its people?
One explanation reaches back to the 1920s, to a plan drafted by a bi-racial Austrian-Japanese named Richard Nikolaus Eijiro, Count of Coudenhove-Kalergi (1894-1972), whose parents were the Austro-Hugarian diplomat Heinrich von Coudenhove-Kalergi and Mitsuko Aoyama, the daughter of a Tokyo oil merchant, antiques-dealer, and landowner.
Richard Nikolaus, more commonly known as Coudenhove-Kalergi, was a Free Mason and an advocate of racial mixing. He is regarded as a father of the European Union, being the founder and president for 49 years until his death of the first movement for a united Europe, the Paneuropean Union.
In his 1925 book Praktischer Idealismus (Practical Idealism), Coudenhove-Kalergi wrote that “The man of the future will be of mixed race. Today’s races and classes will gradually disappear owing to the vanishing of space, time, and prejudice.”
Though not himself a Jew according to Wikipedia, Kalergi extolled a kind of Jewish supremacism, characterizing Jews as “a spiritual nobility of Europe” — “a new race of nobility by the Grace of Spirit” formed just “when Europe’s feudal aristocracy became dilapidated,” in the crucible of antisemitism wherein “Instead of destroying European Jewry, Europe, against its own will, refined and educated this people into a future leader-nation through this artificial selection process.”
As Europe finds itself overwhelmed by the incoming hordes of “refugees” and “migrants,” some have turned to what is called the Kalergi Plan to explain why Europe’s political elites encourage and welcome the invasion.
Mass immigration is a phenomenon whose causes are still cleverly hidden by the system and which is falsely represented as inevitable by the multicultural propaganda. With this article we intend to demonstrate once and for all that mass immigration is not a spontaneous phenomenon. What appears to you as inevitable is actually the fruition of a decades-long plan to destroy completely the face of the Old Continent.
Few people know that one of the main architects of European integration was also the one with a plan for the genocide of European peoples. He is a dark character whose existence is not known by the masses but whom the powerful consider as the founding father of the European Union. His name is Richard Coudenhove Kalergi. While he was alive, he moved behind the scenes, away from the spotlight, and managed to attract the most important heads of state in Europe, who became his supporters and promoters of European unification. In 1922, he founded the Pan Europa movement in Vienna. Its goal is to bring about a New World Order based on a federation of nations led by the United States. The unification of Europe would be the first step towards a single world government.
With the rise of fascism in Europe, the plan suffered a setback, resulting in the dissolution of the Pan-European union is forced to dissolve. After the Second World War, Kalergi redoubled his efforts and, aided by the support of Winston Churchill, the Masonic B’nai B’rith lodge, and major newspapers such as the New York Times, Kalergi succeeded in pushing his plan to the US government.
THE KALERGI PLAN
In his book Praktischer Idealismus (Practical Idealism), Kalergi declared that the people of the future “United States of Europe” will not be the original peoples of the Old Continent, but a kind of bestial subhumans made ??by miscegenation. Kalergi stated in no uncertain terms that you must cross the peoples of Europe with Asian races and color, to create a multiethnic flock without quality and easily controllable by the ruling.
Although no school book talks of Kalergi, his ideas were the guiding principles of today’s European Union. His belief that the peoples of Europe should be mixed with blacks and Asians to destroy European identity and create a single mestizo race, is the basis of our present policy of protecting and integrating minorities. Disguised as humanitarianism, this policy is aimed at the greatest genocide [of whites] in history.
Europe’s Coudenhove-Kalergi prize was created in his honor. Every two years, Europeans who excelled in pursuing Kalergi’s criminal plan are awarded the prize, among whom are the likes of [German Chancellor] Angela Merkel and Herman Van Rompuy [former Prime Minister of Belgium and the first President of the European Council].
[White] genocide is also the basis of the UN’s welcoming policy toward millions of immigrants to compensate for Europe’s low birth rate. According to a UN report released in January 2000, entitled “Replacement Migration: a solution to declining and aging populations,” Europe would need 159 million immigrants by the year 2025. One wonders how it was possible to make such an accurate estimate if immigration was not a well-rehearsed plan. Certainly, Europe’s low birth rate can easily be reversed with appropriate measures to support families. It is equally clear that the genetic heritage of Europe cannot be protected by introducing nonEuropean migrants. On the contrary, mass immigration will only accelerate the disappearance of Europeans. The sole purpose of mass immigration, therefore, is to completely denature a people, turning them into a collection of individuals without any ethnic, historical and cultural cohesion. In short, the Kalergi Plan has been and still is the foundation of the official mass immigration policies of European governments, at the cost of the genocide of the peoples of Europe.
If we look around Europe, we can see that the Kalergi Plan seems to be fully realized. We are facing a “terzomondializzazione” or Third Worldization of Europe — a “New Civilization” supported by multicultural missionaries, formed from forced mass immigration of hordes of Africans and Asians. Each year, miscegenation and mixed marriages produce thousands of new individuals of mixed race — the “sons of Kalergi”. Under the media’s dual pressure of misinformation and the propaganda of humanitarianism, Europeans are taught to deny their origins, to deny their ethnic identity.
Advocates of Globalization strive to convince us to give up our identity as a progressive and humanitarian act and to think that holding onto our ethnic and cultural identity is “racism” because they want to make us all into blind consumers. In these times, it is more necessary than ever that we expose the lies of the system so as to rekindle the spirit of rebellion in Europe. Integration is tantamount to genocide. We have no choice but to rebel for the alternative is ethnic suicide.
The world is full of multimillionaires who can't handle money. Because, if you have money, you want to convert it into the best sex ever. Otherwise it's useless.

In 2010 there were 38,364 documented suicides in America. This is roughly 1/10th of unsuccessful attempts (or parasuicides) committed. Though many of these are “cries for help” and are intentionally foiled by the person committing the act, some are genuinely unsuccessful. 25% of parasuicide victims will go on to success within a year. By far the most common and successful method of committing suicide is by gun, with 53-55% of successful suicides in the US using them. Second in popularity and success to suicide by gun is suicide by suffocation/hanging with roughly 22-25% using this method. Third to suffocation is poisoning, which includes intentional drug overdoses and consumption of toxic substances. About 18% use this method.
There are many other methods used, some uncommon due to circumstances such as the high amount of pain and discomfort experienced, or the fear associated with these methods. Some of these methods are downright unsuccessful, or are accidents occurring whilst crying for help.
These methods are as follow: Falling/jumping, cutting/piercing, drowning, self immolation, and transportation related suicides such as driving into walls, throwing yourself into a train, bus, car, etc. All methods, of course can be used in combination. ex: Slash your wrists, eat 80 Benadryl, douse yourself in gasoline, light a cigarette, and throw yourself off of an overpass in front of a Greyhound, semi, truck, Prius, etc. This will make a particularly newsworthy story, getting you the attention you sought in life for all of four days.
Suicide by Gun:
Chances of success increase when a shotgun is used in comparison to a rifle or handgun. This is due to the energy delivered on impact, as well as the scatter of projectiles, rather that one. However, a shotgun is harder to aim at more fatal points, such as the side and back of the head. Aiming at the head is of course a more fatal delivery point, as opposed to the chest or abdomen. By far the least successful method and delivery point being a handgun to the chest and/or abdomen. For a best possible result, use shotgun equipped with a solid lead slug, or double-aught (or larger) buckshot. Chances of success fall when using an unmaintained firearm, or old ammunition, as aged ammunition may not reach proper velocity or even discharge. The same effect applies to an unmaintained firearm. FMJ (full metal jacket rounds) also have a lesser chance of success as the round when expelled does not expand, creating a cleaner wound, and inflicting less damage on impact. A firearm is not suitable for a suicidal gesture, as the chances of success are much higher than other methods. Possible effects of failing: Disfigurement, paralysis, pain, infection, brain damage, damage to liver, spleen, diaphragm, and collapsed lungs.
The scene left behind, of course will not be pleasant for the person who finds you. Blood, bone and/or brain fragments spread over the area, facial disfigurement, and significant blood loss.
Suicide by Hanging:
There are two basic methods of hanging: simple suspension and drop. In simple suspension, death is most likely caused by asphyxiation due to the weight of the body being suspended in the noose. Death is also possible by arterial and/or vein compression, cutting off blood supply to the brain, or heart and lungs. In drop hanging, a platform is kicked out from under the person, and the person drops, instantly breaking the neck and rupturing the spinal cord, causing an almost instant death.
A key part of hanging is the knot. Tie a simple noose with some sturdy rope, such as hemp or manila. Test the noose, as it should tighten with applied pressure. The knot should sit behind your neck. The other end of the rope should be attached to something sturdy that will not move, or break, such as a hook, rafter, or railing. The knot should be tied securely to ensure that it doesn’t slip off of the surface. Strangulation can be achieved by sitting down, bending the knees, laying down, or kicking a platform (such as a chair) out from under you. Of course, it should be mentioned again that the rope should be sturdy, as the body will thrash in its death throes.
If the hanging is interrupted by discovery, rope breakage, or slippage, brain damage can occur. As with before, the scene left behind will not be pleasant for those who discover you. Often, the tongue will swell and protrude from the mouth; the face will often turn blue due to oxygen and blood deprivation. In all cases there will be defecation and urination.
Suicide by Drug Overdose:
When used as a sole means of suicide, drug overdose is seldom successful. The potency of street drugs commonly used (such as heroin) is commonly unreliable. MLD (minimum lethal dosage) is often hard to calculate and is somewhat unreliable due to outside factors such as weight, tolerance, and whether not a meal has been eaten recently. Contrary to popular belief, this is not a quick and painless method. It takes anywhere from 3 to 10 hours on average, depending on the drug taken. Several drugs cause convulsions before death. Even more drugs cause vomiting, fever, heart palpitations and pain. Drug overdose a risky and unreliable method.
An exit bag is a suicide apparatus that brings about a relatively quick and painless death. Manufactured out of a large plastic bag with a draw cord or a Velcro strap for neck fastening and an inert gas such as helium or nitrogen; it brings a quick end to things, without unwanted pain or panic. Unconsciousness sets in within minutes and death sets in within twenty minutes. The result is a quick and painless death with a body that seems serine and at peace. Of course if the act is interrupted it can result in brain damage, which is why it should be carried out in an undisturbed setting. A suicide bag is sometimes used along side with a drug overdose, in order to ensure the desired result.
Suicide by Jumping:
Death by jumping is effective if done from a sufficient height, and while it is not common in the United States, it makes up a large amount of suicides in many cities and countries around the world, such as Hong Kong. A jump should be performed at a height of 150 feet or higher above land, or 250 feet or higher above water. Of course, care should be taken to land on your head, as it would result in a quicker death. It is key to avoid a foot first water landing, as this could result in nonfatal injuries. Jumping is a difficult way to commit suicide as the natural self preservation instinct is to not fall from a great height. This is hard to overcome. This method, of course results in a fairly gruesome corpse.
Suicide by Train:
Suicide by train is a rather uncommon and extremely gruesome method to end your life with. Death can be rather quick, but it can also be drawn out and extremely painful. If you aren’t decapitated, there is a chance that you could bounce off of the train, and find one of your limbs on the tracks. Injuries can range from broken bones to amputations, and severe brain damage. Suicide by train can be traumatic to many people such as train drivers, cleanup crews, and the family member/ loved one that will have to identify your body later on at the scene or in the morgue.
Wrist cutting is mostly practiced as a method of self harm rather than suicide, though it occasionally leads to death due to unchecked bleeding that can lead to shock, and loss of consciousness. Often survivors find that they have limited use of their hands due to severed tendons and loss of nerve use and the ability to touch. Though it may seem like the only option or a quick way out of your problems, suicide is effectively stealing everything from your, as well as your loved one’s future. Often the reasoning behind it is faulty, selfish, and subjective. One should always look at every available option and make an educated decision when it comes to serious situations and decisions such as suicide. When you say you’re alone in something remember that there are over seven billion others, most living and functioning in worse condition than you.
If you are still invested in the real estate of European cities, get out! A terrorist attack with chemical weapons will happen. And it won't be just one. Chemical weapons are just so easy to produce.
