That is EXACTLY the mentality I am talking about.
1. people willing to give their lives for scientific advancement = suiciders.
2. according to 1. -> they're crazy.
3. You judge everyone according to your morally superior filter, even deny their rights because they conflict with what you've been taught is "normal" (OK, that mostly applies to all cultures).

Maybe those people would rather live heroically for one year than sit on their asses as couch potatoes for 50-60 years. Yeah, I know they would give up tens of thousands of burgers, not to mention all those tons of ribs and bacon, which definitely MUST be crazy...

I can't think of any purely scientific suicides either

Giordano Bruno?
He refused the offer of a full recantation, which led to his burning on the stake.
Marie Curie - her research led to her death by radiation poisoning.
Harry Daghlian (arguably) - he died trying to prevent a nuclear meltdown from happening.

There were also many scientists who performed dangerous experiments on themselves and lived to tell the tale.

If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the precipitate.

Working...
