A euthanasia expert has unveiled his latest machine designed to bring an easy, quick, and painless death to anyone with the press of a button. The suicide machine was 3D-printed by Dr. Philip Nitschke who opened up his latest suicide-assisting machine "Sarco" (short for sarcophagus) to the public at Amsterdam's Funeral Fair.

Anyone will be able to try the machine out for themselves, but it isn't lethal yet. In fact, this machine offers a virtual reality experience that offers users a glimpse into how the suicide machine works. Dr. Nitschke plans to release the 3D-printing plans online by next year so that anyone can assemble the machine anywhere. The intent is to "allow a person a peaceful passing" at a location and time of their choice.

A complex, online system has been developed to allow users of the real deal to fill out an online test that will gauge their mental fitness. If they pass the test, they will then be given an access code valid for 24 hours. They will then need to enter the code and then another confirmation from the user must be given. The Sarco machine is designed to sit on a generator that uses liquid nitrogen. When the liquid nitrogen is released, the level of oxygen goes down which will induce hypoxia.

When the brain experiences too low of oxygen levels the body begins to slowly shut down. The symptoms are confusion, increased heart rate, rapid breathing, shortness of breath, sweating, and wheezing. But the Sarco offers a death with "style and elegance" within just one minute as the user loses consciousness and dies.

Dr. Nitschke wrote, "A Sarco death is painless. There’s no suffocation, choking sensation or 'air hunger' as the user breathes easily in a low-oxygen environment. The sensation is one of well-being and intoxication." Nitschke has been dubbed the "Elon Musk of assisted suicide" and the death machine is his "Tesla". Euthanasia has been a topic of heated debate where proponents argue it is a person's "right to die" as they wish, especially in cases of severe or terminal illness or suffering.

So, "Te sensation is one of well=being and intoxication." Has someone actually experienced it and come back to tell about it? If not how can they prove it's all that wonderful? Sounds like their looking for customers. Another way to cut back on the population?

Scenario: Mrs. Clinton, Mr. Obama we will gladly pay you Tuesday for a hamburger today. Just give us all of your federal reserve notes in exchange for___ and step into our nice spa for a little rest and relaxation.

I wonder how long it will be until we see political applications of this technology, such as getting rid of politically incorrect critics and opponents.

We are told it offers a death within just one minute as the user loses consciousness and dies.

QUESTION: If the human body lasts up to 4 mins without O2. Then how is death possible in 1 min, if it is solely being accomplished by lack of 02 causing the death?

Doesn't this mean a Person could be CPR'd to recover?

Right next to the button that activates the suicide machine there is a sign that reads, "No Refunds."

Nitschke has been dubbed the "Elon Musk of assisted suicide" and the death machine is his "Tesla".

With all the problems coming out about the Tesla car, and Musk himself joking about possible bankruptcy, is this really the best comparison to make? (Or maybe that was the point.)

They should take all those sick people who goes after little children who milled them should be put into that machine

>>23552 yes, no refunds but also no returns.

Oh and there's no coin return button either.

Perhaps replacement for executions by lethal injection, firing squad, hanging,gas chamber and electrocution.

of course I think that there should be execution "in kind". If you shoot someone, you should be shot. Stab someone, get executed by beheading (guillotine). Strangle someone and get hung.

Maybe this device would be too kind to the criminal.
