Man, I know what you mean about the suicide thing. Did you know that one of the states wants to make it a crime punishable by death? He he.. wonder if they plan to do the same thing with this rail-road station.

I also enjoy the fact that it's illegal to commit suicide. If you do it right of course it doesn't matter if you're arrested, however, if you mess up don't you think thats a terrible thing to do to someone. Put them in jail when they're already in that deep of despair. Oh well.

I think that is really stupid... and there are a whole bunch of laws like that. In this one state, it's illegal to bring a lion into a theater, and in another, it's illegal to keep a camel in a bathtub. I don't get these stupid laws! heehee

If you try to kill yourself, you are NOT thrown in jail. You are forced to seek professional help. They send you to a psychiatrist.

Attempted Suicide is illegal, suicide is not. Well, at least that's what it is here in Santa Clara County CA. I'm pretty sure attempted suicide is the national norm, since doing it right leaves nobody to prosecute.

No one ever said it was instant death to humans, only "instant death". Who knows? If it came from the government it could have simply meant instant death to a mouse. Since when do government agencies ever tell the 'whole' truth?

It is a slip up because, according to the verbage, you cannot be arrested until you actually touch those wires. And to touch those wires is instant death.

Actually the railway sign is meant that, 'if you try, or caught in the process of doing so ' you can be prosecuted. So it does make sense. No slip-up.

Well, I agree with whoever said that someone could survive. But they would be in the hospital for months... only to get arrested.
