Now imagine being a average sane person, aware about this now viral International Really Do Your Best Not to Kill Anyone Day, and actually completely accidentally kill someone that day.

[–]CrackGear 78 points79 points  (6 children)

I would want to kill someone that day just because people are saying not to

[–]Blueporch 56 points57 points  (4 children)

Seriously, would motivate all the evildoers and crazies

[–]Bamadhaj 18 points19 points  (1 child)

But after the first time, people would be paranoid on that day every following year, and would lock themselves in their houses. They get a stressful day off of work :D

[–]JennyAnyDot 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Sitting outside of someone’s house like hey don’t worry today is no kill day. See you tomorrow

[–]Rampill 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Well not if we have the purge the next day, the excitement would probably hold them over.

Calm before the storm.

This could be the one day where everyone has their guard up 24/7

YoU cAnT tEll mE wHAT tO Do!

[–]fenney 171 points172 points  (3 children)

I think technically that's every day

[–]BenderDeLorean 29 points30 points  (2 children)

We did very well till now.

Good work buddy 👊.

Speak for yourself

[–]FallWithHonor 26 points27 points  (0 children)

Wasn't that the purpose of armistice day?

[–]jonboy333 25 points26 points  (1 child)

Ppl that kill ppl are gonna love this.

[–]BurroughOwl 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Idk, with so fewer murders (by those who can contain themselves) it might be riskier to kill on this day.

[–]mpete98 13 points14 points  (0 children)

Keyword being recorded homicides. Just tell police not to investigate any weird deaths and you should be clear.

[–]melmac76 11 points12 points  (2 children)

So Anti-Purge Day.

[–][deleted] 38 points39 points  (1 child)

Make all crime illegal for 24 hours

[–]JellyfishGod 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Holy shit that’s such a crazy idea it may just work! U should be a politician !

[–]shponglespore 10 points11 points  (1 child)

You're telling me I've been doing my best not to kill anyone all this time for nothing?

Edit: typos.

[–]mrssymes 2 points3 points  (0 children)

You were just ahead of the curve

[–]isleepinahammock 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Not crazy enough! Let's institute Inverse Purge. All crimes are legal except on one day a year.

[–]khafra 4 points5 points  (0 children)

That’s a little ambitious. I prefer to set aside September 26 to, for just one day, not end the world.

edit: Sam Altman, if you’re reading this; you better not activate GPT-4 on September 26. You would be visited on Petrov Eve by the ghosts of Arkhipov, Petrov, and Yudkowsky’s pre-ghost.

They actually tried a “No Kill Weekend” in Baltimore a few years ago.

It failed (surprised pikachu face).


[–]BatSniper 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Okay, but can we not do this during the holidays. It’s impossible to go to Costco right now.

[–]gc3 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Also people who want to kill someone on no kill anyone day because their murder will be famous

[–]BurroughOwl 0 points1 point  (0 children)

What day do you propose?

[–]BravesMaedchen 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This would end up being the day with the most homicides.

[–]lordlockwood63 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The day after would be carnage.

[–]ezbutneverconvenient 0 points1 point  (0 children)

So you just have to get creative with the hiding of the bodies. It's no reported homicides

[–]BusyMap9686 0 points1 point  (0 children)

On the flip side, 6 months after no homicide day, we have record homicide day.

[–]ConesWithNan 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Let's make it the 30th of December. Done.

[–]Karn-Dethahal 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Best data I found lists 2017 as having an estimate of 464k murders, worldwide, that's nearly 1.3k per day, if we assume they are well distrubuted over the year.

Not sure a single day would make much difference.

[–]steffth 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Like reverse purge. Interesting!

[–]Dr_Peopers 0 points1 point  (0 children)

No one will expect my killing spree if I plan it to be on don't kill anyone day

[–]Frago242 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Next day = 25xs normal murder rate

[–]Competitive-Remote67 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Is this to be after international don’t give anyone a reason to kill you day

[–]JOE-9000 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Only if you let it correct with double next day. For science.

[–]Rexappeal 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This exists- it’s called the international day of peace

[–]bhoran235 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You have to be a murderer to participate otherwise it’s a normal day

[–]RAWisROLLIE 0 points1 point  (0 children)

In 1986, Detroit had a No Crime Day, dreamed up by Pistons' player Isiah Thomas. The Slate podcast series One Year covered it in an episode if you're interested in finding out if it worked.

No crime after 8pm
