    Killer robot shoots man dead on driveway

    * Man gets plans for suicide robot on web
    * Man builds robot; robot shoots man dead

    AN 81-year-old man has shot himself dead with an elaborate suicide robot built using plans downloaded from the internet.

    The Gold Coast man, who lived alone, left notes of his plans and thoughts as he struggled to come to terms with demands by interstate relatives that he move out his home and into care.

    He spent hours searching the internet for a way to kill himself, downloaded what he needed and then built a complex machine that would remotely fire a gun.

    He set the device up in his driveway about 7am yesterday, placed himself in front of it and set it in motion.

    His notes explained that he chose the driveway as he knew there were tradesmen working next door who would find his body. The plan worked as the workmen heard the gunshots and ran to investigate.

    The machine was attached to a .22 semi-automatic pistol loaded with four bullets.

    It was able to fire multiple shots into the man's head after he activated it.

    -----

    Where can I get the plans for this killer robot?

    The real question of course is: are a robot's right to keep and bear arms protected by the 2nd Amendment.

    :werd: There are so many easier, cleaner, and less painful ways to kill yourself. And :rofl: I wonder how he came to that conclusion.

    Hmm, run a hose from my car's exhaust into the cabin? Hook an IV up to the suction part of the toilet? OD on sleeping pills? Naw... I'll look up how to make a killer robot and use a .22lr pistol to off myself. :rofl:

    Exactly what I was thinking.

    Can my suicide robot stay in California as long as it doesn't have movable hands or a nose over 6"?

    This can't be true.

    No 81 y/o man knows how to use the internet.

    What I want to know is what terms did he google to find the plans?

    A few quick modifications and an added motion sensor and remote control and you have yourself a sentry gun.

    hell, anyone remember the guy in Texas who set up the internet controlled hunting rifle in a blind and people paid to log in, control and hunt??

    Do you NOT see how fucking huge that would be???

    You want to die? pay me $200 and I'll set it up. Now, put on this deer head mask and stand behind that bush...


    You want to kill a deer? Pay me $200 to log in and do it remotely.

    Win win for everyone
