No, it was definately 2008. "Stop 'n' Drop, America's favorite suicide booth since 2008".

I listened to the "Spanish Fry" commentary last night, and Billy West did admit it's possible to create a Suicide Booth right now.  All the methods of death are available, and it shouldn't be that hard to put it all together.  But, as the commentators said, there are none because suicidal people are just lazy.  smile

Is that like when someone says they're gonna bury someone in this one place, but then take the lazy route and just throw them off a bridge or something?

They guessed, because the people being killed didn't go "Aaarrgh, my arms, my legs, this is the worst pain imaginable!" for the few minutes prior to death.

Oh sure, blame the wizards...

I've been thinking about this and suicide booths should be legal, they would actually save lives. Think I'm insane? Read on...

First of all, when a person commits suicide, their body is wasted. In a suicide booth their organs could be harvested and instantly delivered to hospitals for the patients that need donors.
People sometimes take out others when they kill themselves. Today in the UK, there was a train crash caused by a guy parking his car in the middle of the track. He got his suicide, but derailed the train, killing 6 others.
This won't make any difference to the insane suicidal that wants to kill everyone then top himself, but it makes sure that people who don't intend to kill others will not.

So overall, there would probably be more people alive with suicide booths around.

Zmithy has a point.. sorta but wouldn't there be deranged killers pushing people into suicide booths to kill em anyway, to make it 'look like an accident'?

ah screw it.people are going to die anyway, suicide booths should be legal so people can put themselves our of their misery and the rest of us don't have to hear about it...

What if the guy commited suicide because he was really sick and then they wouldn't be able to use his organs?

I have one question, what would you do about the noise?
Don't get me wrong im all for the utilitarian approach, what with donating organs and all, but I mean imagine the horrific screaming as someone was sliced'n'diced. Also, going back Prof.Killbot's thing about diseased organs, maybe you be able to choose if you wanted things to be donated?  big grin

No, because one in they'd have to insert a coin to get killed, and the killer would be unable to get in with them as the door would shut behind them, rendering it impossible to kill them without killing themselves. The booths probably only work when the doors are opened, just like microwaves.

Oh sure, blame the wizards...

Maybe people would trick others into thinking suicide booths were actually phone boxes by disguising them and then end up killing loads of people...
But I guess if someone walked into a phone box without a phone or advertisements for prozzies and sex-lines, they'd probably notice and wouldn't put any money in. Right, I've just answered my own theory.

Actually, I thought it was "Three Hundred Big Boys" that had the comment about the suicide booths in the commentary. Or I could be going crazy. Whichever.

But, yeah, unless the South secedes from youse guys within the next four years, I don't think suicide booths will be legal in the US for many years to come.

i'd rather go via the booth, one coin, a quick death etc, than have some smelly prison death row guard/doc stick a needle in my arm and then have to wait as my heart slows down and lungs stop breathing, knowing i was about to die. even slow and painfull option sounds better than that! or is that just me then?

The initial shot of a lethal injection knocks you out, so you won't have to actually feel yourself dying.  But yeah, the 12 years before that would majorly suck.

Booths are probably a little to conventient...I mean, every teenager in America would line up to use one at some point.

We can start a write-in campaign to the governors of all the states to have suicide booths legalized. Probably be a tax on them, however, to make up for that you can rob the dead.

Also one thing I love about the idea of suicide booths are, that if you suddenly back out at the last moment..all ya gotta do is move to the side!!  big grin

First, it's "bodies" not "bodys".

Second, the real life version of the suicide booth wouldn't have the flash. We don't have that technology. Or, to please you, you rob them before they disappear. (Duh)

i must mirror all of the previous thoughts, i do believe they would not only be economical but efficient as well... however another question presents itself... how would the harvested organs be transferred long distances, and also, how would the booths be cleaned?!?!?

Cujoe169> It's the future baby! Anythings possible..Anyway, they could just have a transporting tube doodle in the floor or something, there could be special sensors over each one, allowing those respective organs to pass through?
Who said anything about them being cleaned?  tongue

I dunno..I keep thinking of that Simpson's Halloween special when Homer gets a hair transplant from Snake and goes all psycho  eek

If ignorance if bliss, you'd think more people would be happy when you tell them they're an idiot!

Where's the money in this? How many people contemplating suicide will want to spend a quarter to kill themselves (I know you can't takeit with you, but it's the principle of the thing)? Is it worth walking all the way to your nearest booth when you can simply jump from your apartment block or shoot yourself? Can the consumer of today cope with having to actively search for a stationary suicide booth, or is it just too much hassle in today's hectic lifestyle?

Yeah what about knives and gas? They are easy weapons to use for committing suicide.
