"What a noble animal is man, splendid in ashes, pompous in the grave..." --Sir Thomas Browne (1605-1682)
The article raises more questions than it answers. How come he didn't die if he used the majority of the heroin? Kind of ironic too, this situation, when he was engaging in a suicide pact, hoping she would not die. Weird.
It's possible he was a chronic user and had thus built up a tolerance whereas she could have been someone who didn't have a tolerance for narcotics.It's also possible the guy was lying. Whether he was really trying to die or no, though, the incident suggests to me that an unsuccessful attempt nearly always leads to less than desirable consequences.
