    Points have been made in the Carradine thread that warrant a philosophical discussion.

    Since we are loaded with the learned, the warriors, and the perverts, I ask:

    If you could choose your death, how would you go out, and why?

    Battlefield. Swords.

    I've seen how merciless old age is. I'll die young and stay pretty, as soon as I can find a war. With swords.:cool:

    I prefer to be raptured while walking a trail with my wife.

    Having just had my second close encounter with the Gravelings, I am going to refrain from tempting Fate any further on this topic.

    The two ways I would NOT like to go are as follows:

    1) A backwards rolling boom truck ride before being thrown into a 12.5kVa "hot" power line resulting in body contact.

    2) Blood Poisoning resulting in hospitalization/surgery in the Cayman Islands....

    :eek::eek:

    My grandma went slowly and wasted away mentally.

    My mom went slowly and wasted away physically.

    If I find myself in either of those situations, I'll be going out with a bang.

    If I were to off myself, it would be through a massive heroin overdose.

    Otherwise, I'd prefer to go quietly in my sleep.

    However, whenever or wherever, I hope it's quick and painless with my self dignity and personal integrity intact and satisfaction that I have accomplished all that I have wanted out of life. Oh yea, and a big ass smile on my face. :D

    I'm not entirely sure I'm going to die, but if it's a foregone conclusion that I must die, I'd choose something painless for my family to have to endure.

    Benning, you'll have to ask the fine folks in our Government. Seeing as they know best how I should be living my life they must surely know how I should go out. :rolleyes:


    FWIW - when I am gone I want an old fashion Pagan farewell. Lots of music, singing and dancing, lots of food and beer, some Celtic games and a big ass bonfire with me sitting on top. ;)

    There can be only one. I am the Highlander I will never die. If I do it will be 300 years from now at the hands another immortal.

    I just hope that I retain all my faculties, however I go. My dad died of pneumonia in a nursing home after suffering from Alzheimers for years. In the end he couldn't feed himself, toilet himself and he had forgotten who I was...luckily i still think he knew who my mother was. In the end you just end up infant-like & utterly dependent. He also had periods of intense fear as he didn't know where he was which must have been personally terrifying...a terrible thing to see for someone who was always so capable, and had survived fighting thru Burma in WW2 :(


    Don't want to go that way, with so much indignity.

    Truly old and pass in sleep
    Or
    Truly fast (150 mph+) in a muscle car.

    Either way with a smile on my face
