Time-Travel : something almost every writer of science fiction has written about and something almost every human who reads books or watches Sci-Fi filims have heard about,

Travelling in time is a real amazing thought, go back and correct things you have done wrong in the past or things others have done wrong in the past, With a way to travel back in time we might be able to go back in time and kill Hitler and not starting world-war 2 itself (is the reason why world War 3 didn't come is because someone has created a time-machine?).

But this is where problem with time-travel comes in, if I go back in time and kill Hitler before start of World War 2, there will be no world war 2 causing me to go back in time to kill Hitler, classic time-paradox, What if I kill my own grandfather? Then how will I ever be born to kill my own Grand-father in the first place?
Another thing, if anyone ever invents time-travel, he can go back in time to give himself the machine, that will prevent him from inventing Time-Travel from the first place.

So as a rational thinker I have to believe that Time-Travel will never be possible, the maximum I think we can logically think can exist will be a time-stoping machine, Click a button and time-stops for everyone but the person who is holding the machine.

This person can never be late, get out of the house 1sec before the big metting happening half way accross the world stoping time, travel accross the world and then restart time, for people who are living in real time it will be like he appeared out of no where. Think of the amazing power anyone could have if he could stop time, could rob banks, could stop wars - stop time wade into the opposing leaders house and kill him and wade out without anyone so much as putting a scrach on you.

But let me think like this, what if this time-stopping equipment was as common as our mobile-phone, (after all isn't it unfair if power is only with one person {Life's always unfair Savio} )with everybody able to stop time, As soon as I stop time to do something, like rob a bank, the banker stops time with his device, now how will this react? will my time which is already outside the real time also be stopped or will the manager enter my time and catch me? Interesting to think about right? now what if i have two devices with me that can stop time? With 1st I stop real time, then what will happen if I activate the second machine with the real time stopped?

 [Why am I thinking all this? This is Thoughts of a Guy remember]

I don't know what you guys thought when you saw the title of this blog, but this blog is called thoughts of a guy and I sometimes thinks of suicide, Now wait before all you so called well wishers and friends of mine pounce on me saying how can I even think of the cowardly way out

I would like to declare right now I think, "Anyone who does commit suicide is a coward who really is doing a real stupid thing"

Now again, I would like to meet a person who could truely say they have never considered suicide, I know many would argue against this statement, but I feel everyone on this world sometime or the other would have though how much better if I was dead. I can see you sub-consciously nodding, so when was the last time you thought of suicide?

As a kid? After your father scolded you for breaking something precious? After your first break-up? After flunking your exam? At job when you felt the pressure of the job is too much? When feeling you not making enough money to keep your loved ones happy? Sometime or the other we have thought about taking our own life, didn't we? (I hope i have prevented a lecture here which would get directed at me)

Anyway, now getting back to topic of my thoughts, All people say, you should have control over your own life, do what you want, and all such crap, then why are people against me taking my own life, aren't you people a bunch of hypocrites? Saying you are the master of your own life and destiny but still don't allow me to take my own life (Almost all governments have laws banning suicide, I don't get the point though, if I am dead how are you going to punish me?)

So that's what people say, what does religion say? I am not a expert in religion but what I have understood about 3 major religions in India,
In Christianity you are forbidden to take your own life as that's murder, you commit suicide and that's a first class ticket to hell, no matter what other good things you have done in life (hypocrisy?)
in Hinduism, its said after death you get reborn as something else depending on what you have done in your life, i.e If I am bad, i will be reborn as a bug and if you are real good you will attain moksha (freedom from life-death cycle). So if we put suicide into the picture then it should be something like a re-boot button on the PC, you are bored with the game, lets start again, hit re-boot (suicide) and you lost all your memory and are reborn again, New start, fresh innings.(Fresh innings to hit re-boot again?)
Islam, Islam really is a religion of peace, but people and fanatics have twisted the words and now Islam is portrayed as a very violent religion, But from what I have heard, then Islam is the best religion for committing suicide, If you commit suicide murdering people of other faith while propagating your own faith, in heaven you will have crowds of virgins waiting for you. (interesting)
Atheism :This is not a major religion but let me put it, if you are a atheist then it doesn't matter if you live, die, murder someone or kill your own self, there is no heaven or hell waiting for u :). So if there is no after life and no after life effects of if you live or die, better die right?

Now putting religion aside, If anyone wanted to commit suicide what would the best way to do it be?
1) Bleeding : Nope, you cut your wrist the pain is a lot, and the blood, you will never make the second cut, you will panic and run to the doctor.
2) Shooting yourself: Here we have a difficulty in getting the firearm, but then unless we shoot in such a way that you are killed on the spot again a very painful way.
3) Hurting yourself badly :a) Jumping off tall building, b) jumping in front of a train or vehicle, again chance you won't die, just hurt yourself a lot and spend rest of your pathetic life in a wheelchair
4) Suffocation : few ways to do this, a) hanging b) drowning c) Carbon monoxide poisoning etc, explain very simple, cut of oxygen to the brain and lungs, again for the time before you die for lack of oxygen, when your body is grasping for air, real painful
5) Poisoning : this is good, overdoes of sleeping pills, you die in your sleep or some other medicine overdoes, but problem with this is, its not instant, if by chance someone rushes you to a hospital while you are unconscious, you will still live with the shame of a unsuccessful suicide

I guess there will be plenty more methods but everything is like if you don't die then your life will become more pathetic than it already is, hearing your family and friends condone you, if you are hurt or something, spending remaing life as a paralytic. So better don't try suicide, live through life, even if life is hurting you like hell, there will always be something positive coming up later.

Just to make a point, an average normal person lives till he/she is 80 so right now if you are less than 40 you still have more than half your life remaining, still plenty of sun-rises to see, plenty of roses to smell, plenty of good-looking humans to lust after, this much is sure, what ever is troubling you to think of suicide won't last more than 2-3 years max, why let go of the ice-creams you can have for the other 38 years?

Just ending this, if someone after reading this is still wanting to commit suicide, I have read of a way that sounds too good!! breathing in helium or N20,

Again anyone really thinking of suicide, please contact me, I might be able to talk you out of it, if not we can do research on the most painless method together :)
