    Euthanasia coaster - photos

    The Euthanasia Coaster is a hypothetical death machine in the form of a roller coaster. Designed by Julijonas Urbonas, the Euthanasia Coaster kills by inducing cerebral hypoxia (lack of oxygen supply to the brain) by sending its passengers off a 1,670-foot vertical drop, and then exposing passengers' bodies to 10 Gs of force for 60 seconds through a series of seven shrinking loops.

    Not sure one should infer/name euthanasia, as there doesn't seem to be any mercy there.

    I think one would loose solids & fluids before the end

    Why would the passengers care? They won't have to clean it up. Plus, they'd pass out and allegedly expire before then. IIRC, the last few loops are only in case the first few didn't do the job.

    I suppose it depends on the state of mind. Bad enough being sprayed through gauze face mask, (& no water in the park to boot) by doggy doo (ex can dog food recycled through really big mutt) but in last few moments I really think I would not want my own crap all over me.

    Think this quote from the website says it all.
