I never thought learning that suicide barriers had been installed on the MacDonald bridge walkway would be this disappointing.
I’ve been looking up the statistics… Because that’s what I do. I like facts. And the facts are that slitting your wrisits and swallowing a bunch of pills have a very low success rate. Like less that 1 in 6 succeed. Nearly everyone with a gun or cyanide does but I don’t really have access to those.
Which is a good thing.
So jumping off something really high has pretty good results, but I don’t think I could ever convince myself to jump off a building into concrete, so the thought of water at the bottom was nice.
I’ve always been terrified of drowning but the fall would break all my bones anyway so I feel like I’d be knocked unconscious first.
But there’s barriers and people and I’m not very good at climbing fences so.
I guess drowning is the next best option. Just fill the pockets full of rocks and walk like virgina woolf.
I wonder if I could do it.
