    Hanging. How to compress the carotid arteries and as a result become unconscious? Without the effect of "exploding head" and pain.

    Write through the translator. When I pull, I get the feeling of "exploding head". I'm not losing consciousness. No blurred vision. Just a pain and a feeling that my head is about to explode. Maybe you need to do it in some special position?

    [Method] So hear me out on this....

    ....but what about using two nooses at once for partial hanging? My thought would be that the extra squeeze on your neck would make you pass out easier. Anyone tried this? Thoughts? Feelings? Comments? Love and kindness:)

    Are there any videos of people successfully hanging themselves?

    I want to know what to actually expect and how to prepare to carry it out successfully. Not just a bunch of speculation like "well this ought to work like this". Don't mean to be rude. It's just frustrating trying to find something that will absolutely work that is accessible.

    Hanging. What can you put under the rope?

    I bought rope. The thickness of the 1 millimetre. She squeezes my neck too hard during the hanging. That hurts. What can you put under it, so that the sensations were not so unpleasant? To achieve maximum comfort. I'm going to do it by touching my toes to the floor. What can you give more advice?

    Which is riskier-being found while hanging, or the ligature breaking?

    Which of the following is more likely to happen and result in brain damage. I'm assuming that being found is riskier, because if the ligature breaks it would probably do so earlier on, before the person is brain damaged, is that right? But a person can be found and saved at any time in the...
