    Cab Driver Cuts His Own Head Off In Suicide
    A taxi driver has decapitated himself in his black cab in what appears to have been a gruesome suicide.




    Eeewww how gross! :puke: See, if he had lived in America he could have just swallowed a bullet. :yup: :biggrin1: He took an awful chance by driving without a head. :mad: He could have killed an innocent bystander. :angryfire2:

    Seriously though, I do feel bad for his friends and family. :frown1: I'm thinking the only thing worse than hearing that a loved one has committed suicide is that they did it by decapitation. :frown1:

    Ha ha ha, this reminds me of Space Balls where Pizza the Hut ate himself to death when he got locked in a hot car.

    In all seriousness though, there is something a tad impossible about that way of committing suicide. You'd get past the first jugular and then you'd pass out/bleed out and that doesnt count once you cut your own spinal cord you wouldnt have control over your arms. Im not sure this guy could have gotten his own head entirely off his body on his own.

    True. Impossible... unless you got a helluva lot of momentum behind that blade.

    Technically, the physics behind the blow would require him to have more than an armslength of momentum behind the blade. I've seen a lot of real beheadings on the internet, it takes a bit of work to saw through the viscera of the neck and whatnot. I just have my doubts, either this guy didnt actually decapitate himself and the news is just saying it because it sounds spectacular, or someone helped him get his head off.

    Well, it doesn't exactly say how he decapitated himself. Perhaps the crashing into the pole gave him the necessary momentum to cut his head off? If that's the case, it could have also been an accident. Something sharp just above the dashboard, he hits pole, body jerks forward, head gets sliced off.

    Who knows.

    Maybe he went thru the windshield and the glass cut it off and he fell back onto the seat. This case make no sense.

    Sorry about that. The article I linked was somewhat incomplete. :redface: This tells exactly how he decapitated himself. While obviously effective and creative I think he would have done better to craft a guillotine from some 2x4's and a large kitchen knife.

    Ouch, imagine the ropeburn the few moments before decapitation.

    But seriously, why not choose a better way to kill oneself? Or better yet, just don't do it!:rolleyes:

    Poor guy must have be desperate to do something as drastic as that. Hope he is at peace now.

    I suppose you think that is hugely hilarious. Would you think it so funny if it was a member of your family.

    OMG, I live in Southwark!! :eek: I didn't even hear about this.

    I think this may be a Brit method. I remember reading about a businessman doing the exact same thing last year, but in an open top convertable.

    The crazy things depressed people do. :frown1:

    Yes,I would have the giggles at the funeral.and more than likely drop the casket,causing the unattached head to roll around inside the casket,causing my brothers to fall to the ground in uncontrollable fits of laughter.From that day forward,all we had to say was " Uncle Ralphie" and the whole room would explode with laughter.Maybe we could get it taped for one of those "Most Funniest" TV shows and win a prize.

    :lmao: Oh My God! I literally laughed out loud reading that! :rofl: I'm one of those people that thinks in pictures so I immediately got a mental image. I also flashed on the Chuckles the Clown episode of Mary Tyler Moore.

    It's from a Chris Morris sketch.He also put it in his final newspaper column which I've blogged.

    I cant even imagine how that could be possible.
