One may be a big chicken and wish to do the job well, in as painless and certain a style as possible. Maybe one doesn't wish to leave a bigger mess than necessary. We had to deal with the aftermath of a tenant who chose the pistol method. Just leaving your corpse lying about is rather upsetting to the finder, no matter how tidy the death...

At the same time, they gather your insurance papers and financial records so that any residual wealth you leave behind can be directed to benefit "Da Machine." The appropriate information enabling you to vote from the other side of the grass for the next few decades is also scooped up.

The system not only works well, it's totally self-funding and self-perpetuating. The best part is that you don't even have to be sick to use it! In fact, if the folks "concerned" about you wish, they can arrange it without your knowledge for a fee.
I like it. That could form the basis for a modest proposal.
