hanged vs. hung

Dear Porsche

Of course, i won the bet. In addition, I think our great language has evolved (or maybe "devolved" is a better term) to the point where if enough people are using the incorrect form -then is becomes the norm.

P.S. is devolved a real word? lol
thanks for your help

hanged vs. hung

what is the proper way to say:
1) he hung himself or 2) he hanged himself

I understand that the word "hanged" is a proper verb for capital punishment, what about if it is self-inflicted?
Thanks for your answer, you will be settling a bet between me and my overeducated husband (who can't spell or write properly).
