Somebody has written a suicide note composing assistant for Microsoft Word, helping you to make sure that your last backhander against the cruel, uncaring world you're leaving is a well-drafted one. No idea whether it comes with a database of Nine Inch Nails/Dashboard Confessional/My Chemical Romance lyrics.
(Note that actually downloading or distributing this software may be a crime in Australia.)

It struck me how they looked like the late-capitalist equivalent of Soviet propaganda posters.
Tangent #2: Does anybody know where I could find images of the propaganda posters from Terry Gilliam's Brazil?
