Suicide Barbeque

Suicide Barbecue
Originally uploaded by timtak.
No joke, this is the suicide method of choice, when young Japanese get together on the Iinternet and meet in groups to commit suicide. They get together in cars, tape up the windows, and put a small traditional Japanese barbecue (shichirin) on one of the seats and inhale the carbon monoxide fumes. As well as feeling this to be a tragic loss of life, I hope it is not too painful.
