Designer Creates "Euthanasia Roller Coaster"

samzenpus posted more than 2 years ago | from the if-you-have-to-go dept.

United Kingdom 409

disco_tracy writes "Lithuanian amusement park worker and current PhD candidate in London's Royal College of Art's Design Interactions department, Julijonas Urbonas, has made a design for a hypothetical coaster that could be the future of humane euthanasia. Urbonas says that it is engineered to give a person a way to die with 'with elegance and euphoria.' From the article: 'The three-minute ride involves a long, slow, climb -- nearly a third of a mile long -- that lifts one up to a height of more than 1,600 feet, followed by a massive fall and seven strategically sized and placed loops. The final descent and series of loops take all of one minute. But the gravitational force -- 10 Gs -- from the spinning loops at 223 miles per hour in that single minute is lethal.'"

And being slowly crushed to death by increasing G force doesn't exactly strike me as "euphoric" either. Other than that, this sounds like an awesome plan. Oh, and the fact that that most people looking to euthanize themselves are elderly and too frail for a roller coaster. And would probably be absolutely terrified if they were stuck on one.

I don't think there is such a thing as "too frail" for a roller coaster that is meant to end the life of its passengers.

And, if you are choosing to kill yourself, why would the roller coaster be any more terrifying than anything else?

Re:I've seen people die... (1)

somersault (912633) | more than 2 years ago | (#37472518)

Perhaps you missed the "long, slow, climb" part. That's bad enough even when you're not sure you're going to die. By the time you hit the top you'd be wishing you had a gun. Maybe they'll put guns under the seats.

Re:I've seen people die... (1)

icebike (68054) | more than 2 years ago | (#37472626)

I don't see why it would matter if you died on the way up from fright or died on the way down from a snapped neck or simply crushed to death.

In either case you arrive at the end of the ride with pee soaked pants, vomit caked shirt, and underwear bulging and smelling worse
than you ever did while living. Probably to be unceremoniously dumped into a coffin by uncaring attendants dressed in Tyvec suits and breathing gear.

Such Elegance!!

Re:How nice (2)

AK Marc (707885) | more than 2 years ago | (#37472636)

10g is not enough to crush you. It's enough to cause the blood to pool in your extremities, depriving your brain of oxygen, but wouldn't otherwise harm your body with any long-term effects.

Re:How nice (1)

DarkOx (621550) | more than 2 years ago | (#37472396)

If not crushed to death subjected to cardiovascular stress your body can't cope with, neither sounds fun.

If you look how Medical doctors who commit suicide do it, barbiturates are their most common method. Which makes sense because doctors have access to drugs so they are more likely to choose drugs, but the fact they select that class of drug, suggests its probably the most comfortable way to end it all. They would be the experts after all..

Re:How nice (1)

shutdown -p now (807394) | more than 2 years ago | (#37472490)

What I've never quite understood is why any kind of drugs is preferable to, say, a .22LR (to prevent it being overly messy) bullet to the head? Surely the latter is instantaneous, and likely much more foolproof in a DIY case than any chemical solution?

Re:How nice (0)

Anonymous Coward | more than 2 years ago | (#37472558)

Mostly because the bullet isn't foolproof either. I've seen people who tried to commit suicide and failed. Brain damage and worse. One guy blew his entire jaw and part of his right cheek away with a shotgun and was left paralyzed from the neck down. Now he can't kill himself if he wants to.

Re:How nice (0)

Anonymous Coward | more than 2 years ago | (#37472688)

22LR is adequate, but there are cases where people have taken larger bullets through or deep into some parts of the brain and lived. In death as in life, caliber is secondary, shot placement is everything; I suspect fear you'll be one of the horribly unlucky SOBs who gets it wrong is why some choose drugs, although doctors especially should have no trouble doing the research and getting it right...

10 Gs isn't lethal (0)

Anonymous Coward | more than 2 years ago | (#37472240)

Plenty of test pilots have survived much, much more. Of course anybody on an asisted suicide ride is nowhere near flight shape. Still, you don't know who is going to survive 10 Gs. To make sure it works, the track should just end on the last hill at 200 feet up, and it should drop you on rocks, roll you through cactus, and then land you on the roof of a pillow factory.

Re:10 Gs isn't lethal (0)

Anonymous Coward | more than 2 years ago | (#37472334)

Here's what the article says:

"So how exactly does one physically die by rollercoaster? The science behind it is pretty simple: spin fast enough and hard enough and your brain won't get enough oxygen to keep functioning. The vertical rolls of the coaster would essentially create enough centrifugal force on the body that the blood rushes down in the body instead of up to the brain."

Personally, I think it'd be more fun if they just lifted up the safety bars after the initial climb.

Re:10 Gs isn't lethal (2)

fuzzyfuzzyfungus (1223518) | more than 2 years ago | (#37472420)

The real problem would be the moderately sub-lethal cases:

According to TFA, the plan is that inertia prevents blood circulation to the brain, starving it of oxygen and inducing death. Unfortunately, there are a lot of increasingly impaired outcomes short of death that depriving the brain of oxygen can give you. Suicide certainly isn't for everyone; but I don't know of anyone who is looking for some serious permanent brain damage...

Re:10 Gs isn't lethal (1)

sjames (1099) | more than 2 years ago | (#37472526)

It's not the peak G load, but the duration that matters. 10Gs without a suit for a few seconds will be a blackout. Go for a minute and it'll be death.

Test pilots have physical training, G-suits, and a supply of pure oxygen to get them through brief exposures to high Gs.

I'm not sure a high-powered death-coaster is going to qualify as "humane" for anybody who isn't a bit of an adrenaline junky prior to their planned demise.

It lacks some of the sculptural potential; but I have to imagine that there are dozens to hundreds of possibilities taken from the anesthesiologists' "Don't do this or the patient will die." course that are at least as euphoric, quite as lethal, and not so disquieting to the inner ear...

Clearly the solution is to pack them in coffins first and end the coaster at a conveniently-located cemetery. No clean-up necessary, just drop them in the ground and load up the next batch (though someone would need to verify death, safety first). I doubt they would have more than one rider at a time anyway, so you could design the ride around a tricked-out coffin (Profit!) and plan a ceremony around the event. Now, if you'll excuse me, I have a screenplay to write. "In a world where amusement parks are run by undertakers..."

that sounds like a horrible way to go. The loops will basically try to rip your internals apart. and the first loop doesnt appear to be enough to do it. so you could potentially be in sever pain for 40 or 50 seconds. Presumable there are also folks that could survive. End up at the bottom crushed bleeding internally, but still alive.

Best of all, no mess and no fuss.

I had always imagined that the most euphoric way to die would be fulfilling some religious or quasi-religious mission. So if you hype yourself up to, say, mass killing for your cause and the prospect of a glorious afterlife, the seconds before you hit the detonator must feel wonderful.

Fortunately, I'm not a thrill-seeker, I don't like killing people, and - most importantly of all - I don't think random attacks on civilians for political causes are likely to be effective. Especially not since the IRA has moved on and the US propaganda machine tells the world to dislike the current crop of boogeymen.

hesaigo999ca (786966) | more than 2 years ago | (#37472680)

As the person rides, they will encounter at last second a blade that whips out from nowhere, and slices the head clean off....if the person is willing to go through a roller coaster 1600 miles long, then I guess they are determined as hell to go...so why not make it easier...

Well, for me this wouldn't work, because roller coasters activate my hyper-barf reflex. So, not only would I know I'm about to die, I'd be getting covered in my own vomit in the process.

Nitrogen Asphyxiation (1)

Nitrogen asphyxiation is probably the best way to go. The body doesn't realize when it's running out of oxygen. It only senses a high level of carbon dioxide. Therefore, inhaling only nitrogen will result in death but there won't be any gasping or discomfort because the body thinks that everything is just groovy.

Wow, there are people here actually taking this seriously. For those people I have a bridge, some prime bottom-land in Louisiana, a derivative-based mutual fund, and homeopathic medicine to sell you.

For the rest of us: Bah! This is old news! John Cleese had a better proposal. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e2PyeXRwhCE [youtube.com]

I made the same thing in Roller Coaster Tycoon last week, but the intended goal was murder, not euthanasia.

What do they do if people have an epiphany in the first couple of minutes of the ride and want to live? Ejector seats?

Warnings? (0)

I guess this would be the only roller coaster without "Keep your arms and legs inside the car" and "Do not ride if you have a bad heart/stomach/brain/back condition" warning. I guess the only restriction would be "one ride ticket per customer".
