With a nickname like ‘Dr D****’, you can bet Philip Nitschke isn’t your typical doctor. In fact, he is the founder of Exit International, a non-profit organization that advocates euthanasia legalization, and has written The Peaceful Pill, a s****** handbook.
As if that was not enough, he has also invented the Sarco, a machine that allows people to die peacefully – without any pain – in just five minutes. The said creations can be printed using a 3D-printer and uses liquid nitrogen to k*** the person using it.
Sarco, the d**** machine.
The capsule, according to Unilad, administers the gas, “k****** the person over a period of five minutes” which makes d**** a peaceful and painless process.
Furthermore, we learn that Sarco has “safety mechanisms” in place to ensure that it wouldn’t be used to k*** people and that the user “can stop at any point up until the point they lose consciousness”.
In an Exit International post, Dr Philip Nitchske described the Sarco as sleek and “luxurious”.
The site further tells us:
“Its base contains canisters of liquid nitrogen and a removable capsule compartment that can be repurposed as a casket. The whole operation will be open-source and could theoretically be 3-D-printed anywhere in the world. It is, in short, the Model S of d**** machines.”
Potential users are required to fill out an online mental fitness test and will be given an access code that will work for 24 hours if they pass.
Then this is the part when d**** happens.
“After the code is entered and an additional confirmation is given, the Sarco capsule will fill up with liquid nitrogen to bring the oxygen level down to about 5 percent. Within one minute the user passes out, and a few minutes later, d**** comes.”
The 70-year-old doctor from Victoria, Australia has since sparked controversy after introducing his creation.
Nitschke, who is a believer that euthanasia should be available for people who want it, explained why he holds the view in the first place.
“When I was working to legalize euthanasia in Australia, I met more and more people who wanted to die but didn’t have a medical reason.
“One of them was a French woman, a scholar, who had planned to die at age 80. Not because she was sick, but simply because she thought that was a beautiful age to pass away.
“When I responded with initial skepticism, she answered—and she was right—that it wasn’t my place to judge her. She said it was her decision, one that isn’t bound by the rules I follow as a doctor.
“Partially due to her, I changed my mind. I became convinced that d**** should be a right for any sane human.”
There is no announced release date for the Sarco yet but Nitschke hopes to make the machine available soon.
Ancient 99-Million-Year-Old Frogs Look Just Like Modern-Day Toads
Frogs will always be frogs, whether they were born today or in the Cretaceous Period.
The world is filled with exciting new discoveries from ancient times. Scientists have just uncovered evidence that frogs roamed the Earth during the Cretaceous Period about 100 million years ago. Interestingly, these ancient toads seem to look just like their modern-day descendants.
A new report confirms that scientists have found four frog fossils in northern Myanmar. The tiny bodies were encased in amber and offer a clear glimpse at what tropical rainforests looked like in the Cretaceous Period. In any case, the discovery is groundbreaking since frogs rarely become fossils....
Elon Musk’s Flamethrowers Get Misused On Social Media Despite Strict Terms & Conditions
What better way to start a particularly hot summer?
There is little doubt that Elon Musk's flamethrowers are the hottest new commodity right now. After all, the fiery device produced by The Boring Company have just been sold out. However, it looks like consumers have already started misusing the dangerous product despite its lengthy terms and conditions.
The Boring Company finally rolled out Not A Flamethrower at a celebrated pick up event held at the company's headquarters. People who had pre-ordered the gadgets were given a chance to sample the power of the flamethrower on unfortunate marshmallows. Although safety was reinforced during the event, things took a dangerous turn once everyone got home....
NASA’s Curiosity Rover Finds Ancient Organics On Mars, Possible Life On Planet In The Past
The new discovery might confirm life thrived on the Red Planet billions of years ago.
Curiosity has made an exciting discovery on the surface of Mars. The rover has just found possible evidence of life on the planet billions of years ago. NASA might not quite ready to confirm that creatures once roamed the Red Planet. Nevertheless, the agency believes that the findings could mean positive things for future missions.
The NASA rover has found organic molecules in sedimentary rocks near the planet's surface. These molecules may contain hydroxen, carbon, oxygen, and nitrogen and are usually associated with life. However, their presence in the billion-year-old rocks does not confirm life on Mars just yet....
