“I don’t have a burning desire to go out and document anything. It just happens when it happens. It’s not a conscious effort, nor is it a struggle. Wouldn’t do it if it was. The idea of the suffering artist has never appealed to me. Being here is suffering enough.”—WILLIAM EGGLESTON (via bbook)
if you live in the US and have ever sent a message telling the recipient to kill themselves, you’ve committed the felony of encouraging suicide and, depending on the state’s laws (meaning, what class of felony it is), you could be looking at a fine of $25,000+ and 10+ years in prison, just for encouragement
and if they actually do it, you are legally responsible and, in some states, you can also be charged with manslaughter
Which translates to: don’t be a dick. People need help at times. Not encouragement to kill themselves. And if you do it, living with what you have done could be the least of your problems.
