I'm going to end it all

Thanks Trace - whom I wish much success with the launch of her ebook, Repo Chick Blues. Sorry I won't be around to see its success, but it's nice to know I won't drown. I have a fear of drowning, ever since I almost drowned when I was 10.

** I'm not displaying the graph because it doesn't work properly.

But here's the conclusion:

You scored as Suicide. Your death will be suicide. What more can I say? Fact: Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem. If you want to know hwo you will commit suicide, take a look at your second highest percentage on the bar graphs.
Suicide - 87%
Gunshot - 80%
Bomb -73%
Posion - 67%
Disease - 67%
Stabbed - 60%
Cut Throat - 53%
Disappear - 40%
Accident - 40%
Eaten - 40%
Suffocated - 27%
Natural Causes - 20%
Drowning - 7%
How Will You Die??

Sandra? This is macabre.

So much so you said it three times?

Yeah, I thought it was pretty morbid. Seems there's a quiz for everything.

And people should visit John Rickards and do the 'porn or pony' quiz. So far, John Rickards and Sarah Weinman know the most about porn stars and My Little Pony. But I think Boy Kim could rival them for top spot.

M. G. Tarquini said...

my little pony?

There's a whole fandom for that, you know? And I don't know what it even is.

Blogger has a twitch today. I'm only going to click that little button ONCE from now on in.

Sandra Ruttan said...

Oh, and if you want macabre, Kev's brother committed suicide by putting a gun to his head.

Even if I desperately wanted to die, this is an option I could NEVER consider.

Trace said...

Eeeek! You can't shoot yourself in the eye until my book launches! You just CAN'T!!

Plus, who will maintain my super-cool, kick-ass website which YOU designed?!

Sandra Ruttan said...

I suppose a bomb is better than being eaten. Yuck.

But Trace, there's always Stuart. He's web savvy. And so is John. And without me to nag him Kev would have lots of time to sit at the computer and eat Doritos.

I shouldn't be so flippant about this. I put my mother in a psych ward after she tried to kill herself - three days of intensive care before she was in the clear - so I don't mean to sound brutally callous. It isn't a funny topic. I just have a very demented sense of humour.

Trace said...

Sorry, Sandra :( I have a demented sense of humor also. Like a long time ago this woman was doing a history on me and she was asking about all my family members, and then she says, "Okay, what about your dad? How's he doing?" And I said to her, "Not too good. He's dead." And I just started laughing my ass off. Black humor. Can't help it. But I'm the type who will get the giggles at a funeral.

Sandra Ruttan said...

Yeah Trace, I'm with you, totally. I was doing registration for a conference and made a tiny slip with something I said, started to correct myself and said, "I had a little brain-damaged moment there."

The woman threw a complete hissy fit on me for what a terrible thing that was to say. And I was trying not to laugh. I wanted soooo bad to say, "Look lady, you want to go toe to toe? My grandfather died in a mental institution, my grandmother suffered brain damage in a fall, and my mother is in an institution and I went through professional therapy as a teenager. If I can cope with it, you can too!"

Geez. People.

Trace said...

Humor is a real defense mechanism. It helps. And hell, if you can't laugh, you'll go nuts. Right? And my dad was a dick. And that's an understatement.

Boy Kim said...

There is NO WAY I'm going anywhere near that porn/pony quiz!

Some, if not more, of the porn stars are male. If you think I'm admitting that I have an extensive knowledge of male pornstars as well as...

Oh. Hang on.

Ah well. Not good Kim. Not good.

Lucky guesses, that's what they were. Yeah, that's it. Lucky guesses. Nice weather, isn't it?

Sandra Ruttan said...

Trace, we're cut from the same cloth, methinks. Sisters in spirit.

Kim, come on. What was your score? At least go post it on John's blog. Pullleeeeeease! I'm dying to see what you got. It'll make my back feel so much better.

Boy Kim said...


I didn't get them all right.

*Hangs head in shame*... although not sure whether 'cos I knew them or 'cos I got two wrong. Like I said, some were blokes.

Stuart MacBride said...

I'm going to disappear:

"Your death will be by disappearing, probably a camping trip gone wrong or an evening hike you never returned from. Always remeber that one guy who was hiking alone and got in a rock slide. He could have died, but he cut his own hand off to save himself. Don't end up like him (or worse, dead)."

So if it comes to it, I'm going to take my hand with me.

And how come there was no death option of 'humped to death by adoring groupies on your 120th birthday'?

Sandra Ruttan said...

Maybe because the site of your groupies naked would have been enough to stop your heart before they tied you down?

Anonymous said...

I got:

"You scored as Bomb.
Your death will be by bombing. You will probably be an innocent bystander, not doing anything wrong and not a person who was targeted at, just in the wrong place at the wrong time."

I suppose since I said I can swim, don't belong to a gang, don't tease animals and have a generally safe and hygienic life they had to kill me off somehow.

I'd like to live as long as possible so I'll also stay away from adoring groupies on my 120th birthday!


Sandra Ruttan said...

LOL Kate, I would have thought for sure you'd be a 'natural causes' person.

But if we set up the spy system on Stuart we can study the whole groupie sex death thing. He's what, four, five years away from the magic number?

Cornelia Read said...

Ach... suicide. Cut throat. I was figuring "disappear."

Sandra Ruttan said...

Oh Cornelia, that's no way to go! It must just be because the groupie sex with Stuart option wasn't on the list.

Of course, I bet there are some that would like to make Stuart disappear... Then again, Trace scored 'disappear' as well.

And where's 'alien abduction'? And death by kangaroo kick? That's one for Kate.

Gabriele C. said...

Wow, I'm even 100% suicide.

Getting out somewhere into the wilderness and taking poison seems to be my way to go.

Could work, in fact.

Sandra Ruttan said...

Go out in the wilds of Australia and let the poison find you. Snakes, spiders...

Sandra Ruttan said...

Not that I want you to end it all Gabriele!

Boy, how'd I go from wishing everyone success and happiness to assessing their options for death? Whew!

But I really want to know how John's going to do himself in.

Spy system? No. Reality TV! By then the world will be ready for Crime Writer House!


John R. said...

Natural Causes for me. A cut throat and disappearing were lagging way behind.

I was a fan of TheSpark's Death Test, back before you needed an account with them. Apparently, I'll pop my clogs at 67, of either heart attack or alien abduction.

Or one causing the other, I guess.

Sandra Ruttan said...

Come off it John. Somebody will take you out long before then!

Kate, what a brilliant idea! Can you imagine it? Who would you nominate for the Crime Writer House? That could be hysterical - esp. the groupie sex with Stuart. Of course, it isn't hard to imagine what John would do to him...

Dana Y. T. Lin said...

Sandra! You have GOT to stop posting things that I was gonna post! Too weird! I took a bunch of quizzes the other day and kept forgetting to post them.

But I'm gonna die of - drowning.

Best career? Clown salesman.
What I should write? Rock Lyrics.
If I were a comedian, I'd be - Jeff Foxworthy.

Yeah, that's me, a Redneck clown rockin' it out, keepin' it real who's gonna drown in a puddle of gin.

Sandra Ruttan said...

Dana, that's priceless! Absolutely priceless!

Yeah, you're a redneck. HA HA HA HA HA!

But the gin's not all bad.

Russel said...

Dammit, I get to dissapear with Stuart when I die... Actually its very accurate (except for the part there about being with Stuart)... I get lost very easily so one day I will probably just dissapear. Probably lost at the back of a cupboard somewhere under a huge collapsed pile of books...

Sandra Ruttan said...

But think of it this way Russel. At least you don't have to deal with the group sex thing with him and John when Stuart turns the big 120.

But this whole Crime Writer House - I can see it. You, Stuart, John...oh my gosh, I just had an image of Stuart that's just wrong. I need to go look at porn or my little ponies or something to get THAT thought out of my head.

Stuart MacBride said...

Right - that's quite enough smut on this thread. Everyone needs to go have a cold shower and a nice cup of tea.

Vincent said...

I will die of natural causes. I'm not sure if that's a good thing or not. Unless Stuart's groupie death option counts as natural causes.

You realise in Crime Writer House that contestants wouldn't be voted out, they'd be voted murdered in various horrific ways. Hmm, I wonder who'd be the first to go...?

Sandra Ruttan said...

Stuart, you started it.

Good point Vincent. Who would be the first to go? You know, I think John might be the one who'd bite it first. That Russel, I think he might take the prize.
