Death by seppuku...

or, as it's quickly being labeled, detergent suicide.

I found it interesting that people are starting to turn away from the usual leap from elevated places, hanging, stepping in front of the train, and strangely, walking around in a pastoral forest. Instead, folks seem to be opting for the gas chamber method at home, via the hydrogen sulphide produced from mixing household toilet bowl cleanser with other chemicals.

Surely, with stricter laws on rope and household cleaners, the land of the rising sun can cure their epidemic of suicide. Or maybe Japan should reclassify these as "building deaths" and blame an architect for the height of the building, or sue rope makers, or SC Johnson, or... *snark alert*
