    Ever Since That One Time...

    Kill Me Anyother Way Except Drowning, Any. Other. Way!!!

    I hate the thought of drowning. It isnt the water that scares me, but the fact that I wouldn't be able to breath if I was drowning. Being strangled, hanged, gassed, suffocated, any way to die that involves obstructing my air-way or preventing me from breathing is absolutely...
