A Drug To Really Trip Out With…….

March 11, 2008 at 7:40 am 4 comments

….. when you want to exit the planet on your own terms.

If you stop to think about it, either using a gun or leaping out in front of a speeding bus to end your days may well work, but either of these will leave a mess that someone has to clean up (and a bus driver who might have difficulty sleeping), and it also might make the idea of having an open coffin service a tad unsettling for your family.

It seems to me that if there was a drug that was 100%  reliable in allowing one to pick their exact time and place to really “Leave the Building”, it could be the biggest money making pill ever  made, one that would pass Viagra, and I have to guess that the Pharma suits are busy at work trying to get it past the research phase to wide release.

The first (and main) problem would be getting past the FDA, convincing them that it’s safe for consumers. This would be a difficult sale since the intended purpose of this drug is to end your (the consumer’s) life.

The second obstacle would be figuring out how to do the required placebo tests, it’s not like you could just use a bunch of crash test dummies. Simply described, all it would have to do is take away any pain and then put you into a deep and peaceful sleep that you’re not going to wake up from, with no chance of leaving you to spend all of your eternity on earth as a vegetable on a respirator because it wasn’t strong enough to close the deal.

I’m sure that the religious right would oppose any sort of self administered stuff that would help you to end the “sanctity” of life, even if you’re deep in the tertiary stages carcinomaville, but I’m also sure that I’d run right over you (or them) on my way out to buy a few of these get out of hell free pills at any price in a skinny minute, just to have something on hand as an option when and if it suddenly became required.

I was never a boy-scout, but I can tell you I get “be prepared”. Can you honestly tell me that you wouldn’t stock up? Thinking of how I’d like to be able to leave this best of all possible worlds has been an occasional thing for me for the past few years, for no particular reason as my health is mostly good and my everyday life isn’t too bad either. Maybe it’s the people I have to deal with on a daily basis? I’m thinking when the time comes I’d like to be checking out something like I saw the actor Edward G. Robinson do once do in a film. He was wearing a comfortable robe, laid back and sedated, listening to some beautiful music which I think it was a part of the 9th symphony by Beethoven.

My audio choice for the last tune echoing in my ears at the end? At this time I’m thinking it would be “Lady of Shallot” by Loreena McKennitt, with the volume way cranked up enough to make my ears bleed.

I’m not actually suggesting I’ll do this or even preparing for this now, but that is a kind of relaxation that would make the transition into worm food a bit smoother for me.

What would you be listening to?

    Why would you have to stock up? This sounds like the kind of thing you would only use once.

    Yeah, good point Bob. That’s what I was thinking.

    Dude I love your writing. I only came across your blog now and just spent an hour reading your posts. Ha – i just bookmarked you on this computer even though it’s not mine….I’m in the middle of Utah roaming around. Maybe the next lone traveler who sits in this spot will read this too…

    I’ve seriously been considering getting my amygdala wired up (I’m thinking professionally, trepanning just seems overkill 🙂 with an inductive pickup underneath the scalp. If the time ever comes that I can choose my ‘exit strategy’, I can pop a small speaker over the pickup, connect my music system, slip into my Depends, and blast out of here in a 10-day blaze of musical ecstasy.

    I’d actually prefer a subdermal 3.5mm TRS connector, so I don’t accidentally trip out walking past radio towers, but the body is excellent at munging up metallic cavities. Personal experience. So I’ll just stay away from radio transmissions.
