"It was ironic, really - you want to die because you can't be bothered to go on living - but then you're expected to get all energetic and move furniture and stand on chairs and hoist ropes and do complicated knots and attach things to other things and kick stools from under you and mess around with hot baths and razor blades and extension cords and electrical appliances and weedkiller. Suicide was a complicated, demanding business, often involving visits to hardware shops.

And if you've managed to drag yourself from the bed and go down the road to the garden center or the drug store, by then the worst is over. At that point you might as well just go to work."

— Marian Keyes (Lucy Sullivan Is Getting Married)

Well, Marian, there are other ways of dying that doesn't involve visits to the hardware store. I could think of jumping down a building. Or jumping in front of the MRT train. Making the journey will to the train station will take some effort though, and disrupting the train service would be such a selfish thing.

Not that I'm feeling suicidal or anything.
