Here is instruction list from MS site on how to create a local account from within the Windows itself (not easy).
Swipe in from the right edge of the screen, tap Settings, and then tap Change PC settings. (If you're using a mouse, point to the lower-right corner of the screen, move the mouse pointer up, click Settings, and then click Change PC settings.)
Tap or click Accounts, and then tap or click Other accounts.
Tap or click Add an account, and then tap or click Sign in without a Microsoft account (not recommended).
Tap or click Local account.
Enter a user name for the new account.
If you want this person to sign in with a password, enter and verify the password, add a password hint, and then tap or click Next.
If your PC is on a domain, depending on the domain's security settings, you might be able to skip this step and tap or click Next, if you prefer.
Tap or click Finish.
Where do you get ALT F4 on a tablet? Which is what we are discussing here
Really? Please track this thread to its beginning and tell me where a tablet is mentioned for this particular issue?
Also, on a tablet you can get ALT+F4 with a virtual keyboard, if you would absolutely need it.
And third, there is still the bloody little X in the upper right corner if you do not like the ALT+F4 option or if you actually have to be on the tablet. And I mentioned that option, but you choose to ignore it and rather point to an issue that doesn't exist.
Approaches like that already exist in other areas.
For example, you generally cannot simply show up for a sex change operation. You have to go through (often) several years worth of consultations and evaluations, before you will be allowed to proceed.
Similar situation also exists for people that have "extra phantom limbs" (they feel that one of their legs doesn't belong to them and should be removed, for instance). Depending on where they are, they will also have an option to consultations, therapy and, eventually, removal of the limb. Alternative can be a person that will go and sit on the railway tracks in order to have his leg cut off by a train. I think you can imagine how well that can work out.
In my opinion you do have a right to do anything you want with your body. But in some cases (like in other areas of your life) you don't actually know what you want and may make a different choice if you are well informed and have the support of your environment that helps you research all the options that may be open to you.
If you feel that you should take your own life, I believe that you are well within your rights to do so. The discussion here is about the people who are attempting to end their lives on a whim, for a lack of a better term. And when they do, they realize that they made a mistake.
Examples that you are giving are also, potentially, mistakes. But they are reversible or correctable. Or in some cases, just life. Suicide attempts, that result in death are not reversible or correctable.
I don't see that as a small number.

It's definitely a new way of presenting a troubling subject to the audience. While video games have long past reached a maturity and are not considered just entertainment for kids, it's not everyday that we can come across one that dares to take us into themes that cannot easily be referred to as "entertainment"."

I'm left handed and I've always carried my watch on the left hand.
I'm a left-handed person and I always wore watches on my left hand. First of all it didn't cause me any problems to do so. Second of all it would be awkward to operate the watch on the right hand, since button-placement is ergonomically better suited for wearing watch on the left hand and operating it with the right one. Try winding a "legacy" analog watch with your left hand, while wearing it on the right one. You can, but it's damn uncomfortable.
The only alternative is then to wear the watch with wrong-side-up, which isn't any better
You can choose which company you work for, and you can found your own company. Both of those are a lot easier in the US than in Europe.
Exactly how difficult do you think it is to found your own company in Europe? In my country all that you need is a bit of starting cash (a few thousand Euros) and you're up and running in a day.
And as for choosing a company to work for, I can assure you it's like pretty much anywhere else. If you're qualified, you'll get a job pretty quickly. How good a job that will be will depend on the current economic situation, but that's also like anywhere else.
