A woman in Taiwan killed herself on her birthday while chatting with her “friends” on Facebook and the most anyone did about it was to give a Willy Wonka-esque “no. stop. please. dont”…
Everything about this story is awesome except the part where she succeeded in killing herself. Unfortunately, this woman is dead, and thats a sincere bummer. but the rest… ho man. listen to this shiz: It’s her 31st birthday and she decides life sucks and she’s gonna check out. So she gets together a couple stuffed animals, lights up a charcoal barbecue in her apartment to carbon-monoxide herself to death and logs onto Facebook to tell everyone about this awesome new game she’s playing, called “slowly dying”…
[Claire] Lin’s last Facebook entries show her chatting with nine friends, alerting them to her gradual asphyxiation. One picture uploaded from her mobile phone depicts a charcoal barbecue burning next to two stuffed animals. Another shows the room filled with fumes.
One friend identified as Chung Hsin, told Lin, “Be calm, open the window, put out the charcoal fire, please, I beg you.”
Lin replied: “The fumes are suffocating. They fill my eyes with tears. Don’t write me anymore.”
A few of the Facebook friends chatting with her tried to stop her and track her down on their own, but none called police. Chung did not respond to attempts to reach him for comment.
Let this be a warning to all you attention whores: Sometimes your cries for attention end up with you not being alive to get the attention you were crying for. Evidently she was upset because her boyfriend was ignoring her so this was supposed to be an “I’ll show HIM” kind of thing that i’m just assuming she didn’t expect to actually work because someone would come save her. Nope. bitch is dead. and guess who found the body? lol. thaaaa boyfriend who came over the next day (he was not in town for her birthday).
Lin’s last words, in Chinese, were: “Too late. My room is filled with fumes. I just posted another picture. Even while I’m dying, I still want FB (Facebook). Must be FB poison. Haha.”
Creepier? We have the same birthday. March 18th. Sure, I kinda wanted to die a little, but i fkkn got over it. do they not have Coldstone Creameries over there?? a large Cotton Candy with gummy bears and sprinkles may have saved my life. could have maybe saved hers too.
