You have to be impressed. Don't you?

This has got to be one of the most creative ways to try to kill yourself......ever.

I mean, this guy must have really put some serious thought into this. I've seen some crazy shit in my days, but thinking you could kill yourself by jamming a pen into your brain - is possibly way up there on crazy. The nose, sure. But the eyes?

Justin Helzer attempts death row suicide by jamming pens in his eyes

"San Quentin death-row inmate Justin Helzer, convicted in 2004 of murdering five people, including the daughter of blues guitarist Elvin Bishop, tried to kill himself and is hospitalized in critical condition, sources confirmed Friday.

The sources said Helzer apparently tried to kill himself by jamming pens in each of his eyes. Although he didn't kill himself, the sources said Helzer did succeed in paralyzing himself on the right side and causing a level of brain damage that has yet to be determined."
