So sorry for your loss. When you are feeling up to it, I'd love to read some good memories of him that you have.

RE: My Brother Died Today.
Woulda been BrotherMan's 48th birthday a few days ago. Cleaning my room I found this:

gotta ground the reference ...




So I had a conversation with him.

Me: Dude, your demise was unexpected given your actuarial e sub x.
BrotherMan: You know enough statistics Bro to know a particular person may well die many years before or many years after their "expected" survival.
Me: Yeah. I checked with my Doc about this "Sudden Cardiac Arrest" business which apparently is quite different from a "Heart Attack" or "Myocardial Infarction" 'cause the heart don't actually just stop in those and yours just did. Doc said, "Sudden Cardiac Arrest means we don't know what the fuck happened."
BrotherMan: Yeah, I can't help you with that one. I don't fucking know either.
Me: What should I do?
BrotherMan: Well regular stress tests and echocardiograms with your cardiologist can't hurt none. And you remember that conversation we had at Uni regarding "trickle down" economics equaling "tinkle down" economics 'cause it's just the rich pissing on the poor and trying to convince them it's golden manna from heaven?
Me: Yeah.
BrotherMan: Make sure they realize and understand and appreciate that.

....

Miss you, BrotherMan.

As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

hugs ( T_T)\(^-^ )

When you are courting a nice girl an hour seems like a second. When you sit on a red-hot cinder a second seems like an hour. That's relativity.

You cannot successfully determine beforehand which side of the bread to butter.
