Suicide is “illegal” because the cops wouldn’t be legally allowed to enter your goddamn house and save your life if someone phones in that there is a suicidal person at a location. They need probable cause of a crime to enter a building without warrant.
The “Illegality”, or just common law illegality, of it, is what allows you to call the cops and give them the address of the friend who just told you they’re about to kill themselves and save their life.
But I guess that’s a BAD THING.
You don’t go to fuckin jail or get fined for attempting suicide. Once upon a time maybe, but in the USA all of these laws have been repealed. The worst that would happen is that some states may consider it a misdemeanor (not sure on the legislation of that still) and many will have you hospitalized and put on suicide watch.
^ I love you
The only thing hospitalization does is dehumanize people and make sure that if they still decide to go through with it, they’ll make sure they’ll succeed so they never have to go through that hell again.
You had a bad experience. That isn’t the case for all instances of hospitalization. Especially for people who hospitalize themselves. (I’d give you the specific and personal example I have, but that’s kind of a breach of trust) Please don’t reblog this post to tell people not to seek help. That can only do more damage.
You can’t choose the House you’re born into in life but whether it be a blessing or a curse is the choice that’s all yours. Unfortunately there are no House Brooks banners (“When You Stare Into The Abyss of the Internet, It Also Stares Back At You”), but Oliver has created these ornate designs for all the major Houses in Westeros, available for purchase at Redbubble so you and your Bannermen can proudly match before their chosen King (or Khaleesi).
"Wait for me, little Cat," he’d say. "Wait for me and I’ll come back to you." And I would sit at this window every day when the sun came up, waiting. I wonder how many times did Bran or Rickon stare across the moors of Winterfell waiting for me to return. I will never see them again.
Isn’t it amazing how nobody ever listens to Elrond
Elrond’s like that one guy in all the movies and shit who’s just ‘don’t do the thing’ and everyone else is just ‘Shut the fuck up. What do you know?!’ and then later on it turns out they shouldn’t have done the thing..
Elrond would survive a horror movie
Elrond has already survived several horror movies.
