Public Service Announcement: Only do it to yourself
If you decide to kill yourself don't do it by walking in front of a bus, train, or getting in your car and running the opposite way down the road. Not only do you have the potential to kill someone else who probably had no desire to die with the last one, but you'll inconvenience lots of people who just want to get to work, home, or one place to another.

[Lindbergh] MARTA Station Closed After Person Hit By Train
I wasn't directly affected by this, but I can easily imagine that most around me were or will be. My bus heading away from the affected area was a little fuller than usual because of the delays causing people to bunch up, but not unbearably so.

Of course this may have actually been an accident, but I'm just saying in general...

Current Mood: okay okay

Better idea

If you kill yourself at all you needlessly inconvenience people with grief. Probably best to just not kill yourself in the first place. That being said, if you really want to die by being hit by a bus there are not really any other consequences once you are dead. Its not like you'll care people are late.

Re: Better idea

I've always felt that to really leave a message I need to make someone, somewhere have to scrub a stain out of carpet.

That way they'll always remember you.

Speaking from experience I want suicidal people to cause more inconvenience before they're committed to going through with it.
