The first few ads for me (in the UK) are for suicide helplines. I think it`s really great actually. You never know what small thing could help save a person`s life.

> Would it work in other countries?

No, not at all. I typed it and got normal, standard Google results. Interestingly, the "Feeling Lucky" button takes me to a site which DOES list lots of ways to do the deed, with pro`s, cons, preparations to make, etc.

at least they didn`t actually list a bunch of ways.... of course if you`re depressed wnough to do it, and too stupid to figure out how on your own, perhaps your death will do a service to humaity by removing your genes from the pool... go Darwin.

the suicide prevention thing should come before all of those things like suicide methods

I thought for these google things you were supposed to type in part of the phrase and let google complete? At least to have a working joke, I guess.

If you can find a suicide hotline through Google, wouldn`t it be more prudent to say "You SHOULD Turn to Google If You`re Depressed"? I would think being presented with a suicide hotline would be a lot more useful than just sitting in your room contemplating death.

I`m happy that Google has this. Granted, the only reason they probably have it is to avoid being sued.

But still.

No horrible idea. More health care expenses if they dont commit suicide. Juuuusssst Kiddding. suicide is nothing funny and a lot of families are affected each year, and the sad thing is that the people that do it dont really think in the harm that they will cause to their loved ones. A truly selfish act of abandonment. Google should be praised for this, not ridiculed

Google saves all your searches, So if you do this search `ways to commit suicide` will be in your profile.

Problem is, What happens if you later turn up `missing` ? Trust me, Your friends, cops and investigators can find out what you search for and they`ll think you committed suicide. If you just happen to be lost in the boonies or been kidnapped, That could be a major problem. They may not even search for you.

@PENtrap, they don`t approve good stuff that we upload unless they absolutely love it. Its a very strong biased system, but their bias is usually 70% correct in the humor lane. So the other 30% we just ignore.

Yeah, it does make perfect sense. Who is Google to tell me what I can or can`t do?
