Random fact of the day

Suicide is a criminal offense in many legislative frameworks across the world. The reason behind this is often deemed to be paternalism, meaning that it's the state's way of protecting you from yourself. By discouraging you. From killing yourself.

You should be discouraged by a law stating that if you fail to kill yourself, you go to jail.

I don't know about you, but I would look for an extra-tall building just to extra-'stick it to the man'.
