The Ride of a Lifetime

Hey, this roller coaster looks pretty darn fun! Wanna take a ride with me? Wait, you want to know what the deal is before you get on? OK, fine.

“’Euthanasia Coaster’ is a hypothetical euthanasia machine in the form of a roller coaster engineered to humanely — with elegance and euphoria — take the life of a human being. Riding the coaster’s track, the rider is subjected to a series of intensive motion elements that induce various unique experiences: from euphoria to thrill, and from tunnel vision to loss of consciousness, and, eventually, death.”

Certainly doesn’t sound like the worst way to go… But maybe it’s for the best that it’s only hypothetical, since I doubt that many people could be convinced to vacation at Six Flags Assisted Suicide Kingdom.
