It just gets weirder. Got in to work today, and told a coworker. He got this funny look on his face, and asked if I was joking. I assuured him I was not.

Apparently, at nearly the same time as my neighbor, his friend killed himself as well. Used a helium bag, and left a well thought out note. We have 28 people working here. What are the odds of two people knowing about two serarate suicides on the same day?

If this isn't Twilight zone weird, I don't know what is.

I hadn't heard of it, and neither had my coworker. Google found it, under some "right to die" website.

You take a large drawstring garbage bag, and put it over your head. Fill with helium, so the choking reflex won't make you panic and rip it off. Breath normally, but you aren't getting oxygen, so you pass out. Suffocation occurs shortly.

All signs point to the second one being well planned out. Financial situation was bad, and the marriage was falling apart. Guy was only mid-40's.

Suicide is never well planned out.

My father bitched me out for wanting to part out my car for an '95 M3.

I think I'm going to sell my NA and pick up an NB with a torsen, hopefully in black, and a 6 speed would be nice.

Man, I would love a Miata in black. Savington's car in his sig makes me

Problem is, black cars look like poop if you don't wash them every 2 or 3 days in my experience. Do you know something I don't about maintenance?

I've had a black truck so I've dealt with it before, I wash my car (white) a lot anyway so no big deal. I'd seriously trade my white NA w/ a HD double diagonal, new top and new tires for a black (or maybe dark gray/blue) NB with a 5 or 6 speed and a torsen.

I raced some guy in a G8 GT the other day...he rolled down his window and asked "Whatcha got done to that thing? It sounds good!". I replied...


"It's stock!" and drove off.

I hate when ******** do that.

I remember back in the day, we were in a 12 second mustang and race some honda civic. He actually kept up with us (by kept up, I mean only lost by a handful of car lengths) and we were impressed, we wanted to know what he had for power and he replied "it's stock." respect lost.

...which is exactly why I said that lol. Now if I had a chance to stop and talk, I would have been more than happy to tell him, but we were still cruising along at 50mph and I wanted to split because anytime I make any kind of run, I like to dip off the road as a "just in case"....to cover my ***.

I once lined up next to a S65 AMG (sedan) and we took off from a dig. I jumped him pretty hard and when we got to the next light he asked what I was making. I told him "300 horsepower" and in a very heavy eastern European accent he said "seeeex hundred horrrse powa" as he pointed at his car. The "seeeeex hundred horsepowa" is still a running joke among a few friends who witnessed this go down

Bwahaha! Was just reminded of good ole George Carlin. Passing Mammoth Cave Kentucky. Only funny if you saw one of his later live shows about people and their bullshit.
