RE: Do you fear death?
I don't fear death itself. It's the dying part I am not fond of. There are so many ways to check out and few are pleasant. I would bet that most with to be very old and just now wake up in the morning but in reality most of the time it's a rather unpleasant process.

The very idea of God is a product of the human imagination."

RE: Do you fear death?
I always remember my mother's friend who is a bit of a bush guy... I remember he said something about he'd like to get taken out by some wildlife - lion or hyaena or leopard... He told me this when I was a kid so I wasn't exactly prepared for the thought... but since then... I never forgot it... I think I'd like to go like that too. Sure it's gonna hurt, but... you go back into the cycle of life... Provide some energy for an apex predator... Get turned into lion poo...

I'd be happy to die comfortably and either be cremated and scattered, used in medical training, or donated to a body farm somewhere. No lion required.

Give me your argument in the form of a published paper, and then we can start to talk.

RE: Do you fear death?
I don't fear death or dying at all. I do fear dying in some goddamned hospital or hospice filled with morphine and having tubes sticking out of me. I figure that dying will be the last thing I experience so I want it to be exciting. I have a vision of getting ripped off the back of my horse by a 180 pound mountain lion who bites through my neck just as we hit the ground and I stay conscious just long enough to see the blood spray around me.

Re: Do you fear death?
I've told my family that when I die, I want my body to be of use. Whatever organs they can use, use them. Skin for a burn center (we did that with my father).

I'd like the idea that my body should be used for a criminal or medical body farm. If the data from my corpse can be used to prosecute a killer, great.

After that, I want my bones to be used as a skeleton for a university or school. I have enough bone breaks (skull, foot, ankle, etc) and mild scoliosis that they could learn how it looks for real.

Basically, if my used-up husk can open a mind, it's great. I'll never know it, but let me have that one fantasy while living.

RE: Do you fear death?
Sorry lady wallflower to be crude about a serious subject, but I honestly think I want to go when I can't get it up anymore. That seems more fearful than death, and would feel like not being alive. Is this an unreasonable criterion? I suppose it's possible I'm overestimating its importance.

With jackoff medicine being what it is, I wonder what the longevity is? Anyway, it really does make me realize there will come a day when I know it's time to go, and hopefully be at peace with it.

I understand that. My husband has said the same type of stuff. He says when he's so old that he's no longer independent, he'd rather be dead.

That's partly why I want to workout, do yoga, and change my diet. I want to live a long healthy life (also, I want a smoking hot body...hehe Blush ). I no longer rely on prayer or "gods timing" for my health. I might not be able to control everything life throws at me, but there is a lot I can do to be healthier! Of course, it's easier said than done.
