Death
« on: February 11, 2019, 12:43:18 PM »
Since we have a thread on taxes, I thought I'd start one on the other inevitability in life: death.

I'm generally against it. Unless you disagree with me, in which case I'm for it.

We all pay the same in death, ultimately. No one escapes, no one gets out alive. The how can vary greatly, of course.

Taxes...yeah...a lot escape.  Mileage will vary significantly.

My father-in-law is gonna outlive all of us.

I joke to my kids: "In 50 years or so, after Mom and I are gone, y'all are gonna have to take care of Grandpa. He'll only be 142 then, and he'll still have a lot of years left."

Sounds like my FIL. Almost 90 and he still cuts the lawn, paints and maintains the house...and always volunteers to help us when we have painting or house repairs to do. I get tired just watching the guy.

Everybody dies.  How did you live?
Luke 6:45   ...A good man produces goodness from the good in his heart; an evil man produces evil out of his store of evil.   Each man speaks from his heart's abundance...

It is better to be fearless and cheerful than cheerless and fearful.

Every man dies, not every man truly lives,

Life is short, then you die.

And I am not frightened of dying. Any time will do, I don't mind. Why should I be frightened of dying? There's no reason for it – you've got to go sometime.    — Gerry O'Driscoll

Oh, don’t worry.... this one will turn political soon, too.  Then you can have your fun. 
Wow, I'm very concerned for Benny.  Being able to mimic Myron Medcalf's writing so closely implies an oncoming case of dementia.

Good to see that someone finally has the courage to take a strong anti-death stance around here. Far too many are unwilling to take on the BIG DEATH lobby.

Life is short, then you die.
I used to hate it when I coached and kids would strike out looking.  I used to make the team run laps after every game for every time someone struck out looking.  I used to say over and over again "Life is short, swing the bat."
Calvin:  I'm a genius.  But I'm a misunderstood genius. 
Hobbes:  What's misunderstood about you?
Calvin:  Nobody thinks I'm a genius.

My GF while I was at MU used to repeat the "live fast, die young, leave a good looking corpse" philosophy. It sounded good to me too...until I realized I was well past "young."

Now I just hope to leave a mostly intact corpse....

They could tie it together with a database where Arby's tracks your cc information so the clock speeds up every time you buy a Beef & Cheddar or curly fries....

...until I realized I was well past "young."

My wife called me today to ask about a hotel room she was reserving for us this weekend.  For the first time in my life, I told her, "check to see if I qualify for a senior discount."  I died a little.
