Being dead doesn't worry me, only the mode of transition.

oh yes.

i also have agreements with my wife not to waste any time or energy on keeping me around if i flatline. i have no interest in life if i am somewhere else or nowhere, but i would prefer to save her from the decision by just tearing myself to bits on a racecourse somewhere.

interestingly, my 19 year old son has difficulties with this. when i was his age i was much more comfortable with death than he seems to be now.

anyway, the wife is of a different opinion, because she is a better quaker than me, and is perfectly happy to lie forever in a comatose state. i told her she wasnt getting the plug pulled so long as there was any brain activity and that has just pissed her off because she wants me to off her if she stops moving, i guess.

not happening.


set the function, not the mechanism.

At 19 of course he is more interested in living than not living. At 19 he has many happy bridges to cross and ..........probably plenty of yokes to bear.
