    Default Man Gunned Down in Driveway by Killer Robot

    An 81-year-old Australian man has shot himself dead with an elaborate suicide robot built using plans he downloaded from the Internet.

    The Gold Coast man, who lived alone, left notes of his plans and thoughts as he struggled to come to terms with demands by interstate relatives that he move out his home and into care.

    He spent hours searching the Internet for a way to kill himself, downloaded what he needed and then built a complex machine that would remotely fire a gun.

    He set the device up in his driveway about 7 a.m. Wednesday, placed himself in front of it and set it in motion.

    His notes explained that he chose the driveway as he knew there were tradesmen working next door who would find his body. The plan worked as the workmen heard the gunshots and ran to investigate.

    The machine was attached to a .22 semi-automatic pistol loaded with four bullets.

    It was able to fire multiple shots into the man's head after he activated it.

    And somewhere in the world, a high school student gets an "A" on his mechanical engineering project.

    There are much easier ways to kill oneself, but he definitely gets an A for effort.

    If he could build an elaborate killing machine, it doesn't seem like he needed to be placed in someone's care. And he had well thought out plans to make sure he was found. Hmm, sounds like his family might have been jumping the gun.

    Hmmm, somewhere, someone is reading this story in a local newspaper and thinking up a plot for a killer novel.

    That's pretty damn funny. I wrote a story about an old guy who goes to a hospital, steals a drug that instead of killing him just paralyzes him...he then gets autopsied alive. Fun!

    That also happened on an episode of "Crossing Jordan" from last year, part of a "CSI (Vegas)" show, in a feature length film (that pretty much went straight to video a few months ago, the title of which I forget), and in a couple of novels as well.

    It's a popular, if somewhat grizzly theme.

    It also almost happened in a Stephen King short story, I think it was called "Autopsy Room Four." That was a great one.

    Well, it was originally built by Gallagher as a way to kill off the watermelons. As you may know, he eventually adopted a much more efficient method, and ended up selling his old unit on eBay to Kervorkian.

    I remember that story. It was good. Then they made it into an hour-long mini movie last year on TBS or TNT. They also did 7 other King short stories. They didn't do a very good job with this one.
