There's this Lighthouse on a conveyor belt, manned by a coughing Chicken. One day, a QF maintenance log arrives on the Chickens desk.

"Qantas doesn't fly B52's" says the Chicken, and promptly begins to cough. Just then, the whole world, including the USS Nimitz, shits itself!

I think that was it BD...

I would imagine the most comfy & painless way of topping oneself is to lock yourself in a room with a big old bottle chemtrailers. You'll not go far wrong with them me laddo.:D

One would presume a large syringe filled to the brim with the finest of Afghani exports, duly refined of course. Columbian marching powder, liquified, might be just as comfy. Doesn't leave a mess either.

There you go, free advice from the Flip Flop School of Comfy Suicides. At your service :ok:
