Okay, this may seem incredibly bleak, but I just had a great idea for an iPhone app: a suicide recipe generator.

 

Basically you tell it what you've got in your house - "I've got 16 1mg Ativan, four Lunesta, nine Tylenol, six Alka-Seltzer dualtabs, 46 Aleve, 134 450mg Wellbutrin, 31 20mg Lexapro cut in half, about 15 Buspirone (whatever those are), 441 2,000 I.U. Vitamin D gelcaps, A brand new bottle of Centrum, a 3L box of wine, two Mike's Hard Lemonades, 1.5 pounds brown rice, a 3-day-old ham sandwich, and some frozen home made bean soup. And a lime, I have half a lime."

 

It returns, you know, instructions on what to ingest, in what order, to get you dead without vomiting or convulsing or making a scene.

 

I suppose the app would have to be free, maybe ad supported ("tap here and your friends will receive this list of funereal options at a discounted iSuicide price"), but it seems like a nice public service, doesn't it?

 

Anyone?

And a free option to modify your Will (and donate to the app's creator)?

Ingredients onhand based on barcode scanning would be easier than typing names (name brand/generic) or marking checklists when one is feeling that distressed.

Might want to include prevention hotline numbers with easy-to-click insta-dial links.

Good point, Yap. A scanner. 

 

I'm thinking this would be ad-supported, by funeral services and stuff. You could create a list of recipients and they'd get a message: "So-and-so has just humanely ended his/her own life. Tap or click one of the following banners to set up discount funeral, flower, or catering services. Thank you for using iSuicide."

The command button for 'cancel' shall be small, coloured nearly the same as the background, and impossible to remap. Attempts to cancel shall be rewarded with the 'Are you sure you oughtn't continue?" FMV clip that can't be skipped.

You might have something here.

A "Like" button would be nice for those of us too busy to send flowers.
