It's scary to think that someone can find plans online to build a suicide robot made to shoot themselves in the head. What's really disturbing is that it was an 81 year old Australian man that did just that. He "spent hours searching the Internet for a way to kill himself," downloaded some plans and built a menacing machine to end his life.

From the report:

The machine was attached to a .22 semi-automatic pistol loaded with four bullets.
While we joke that our older co-workers or parents send us annoying FW:s and videos that are years old, remember that (when categorized by gender and race) white men over 85 have the highest rate of suicide. Send your parents an e-card today.
