Ramblings about death

I’m guessing that most people have their own ideas of the ways they would like to die and the ways they would rather avoid. Is it better to have some time so people can prepare for your death, or is it better to die instantly (e.g. a heart attack)?

I think it is better for  my family and friends to be able to prepare for my death, but on the other hand, I wouldn’t want to be hospitalized for an extended period of time and would not want to be in excruciating pain as I approach death.  Can I pick a terminal illness that wouldn’t leave me in excruciating pain during my final days? 😉

If I am going to die suddenly, I would like to die in a blaze of glory like a 62-year old Michigan man. Right after bowling the first perfect game of his life during a league match, his teammates were congratulating him. Unfortunately, while he was being congratulated,  he had a heart attack and died.

I think it would be great to achieve something I had never done before right before I die or find out that I am going to die. Of course, I hope this doesn’t happen for a long time…

What a way to die…

A burglary suspect went over a  3-foot wall to avoid the police, but didn’t know that there was a 200 foot drop. I wonder when the inevitable lawsuit from his family will be file, claiming that there should have been a warning sign on the wall.

All I can really say is that whoever came up with the phrase “Look before you leap” was a very wise person.

Teenager’s stupidity caused his own death

A 17-year old boy lost his hat while riding a roller coaster at Six Flags in Atlanta, so he jumped over two fences to retrieve it, and was decapitated by the roller coaster. This “death by idiocy” should be a strong nominee for a Darwin Award (though there are a lot of other strong nominees.)

This kid is was obviously an idiot, so let’s hope his parents don’t sue Six Flags and prove they’re just as idiotic as the kid.

George Carlin – R.I.P.

Comedian George Carlin died earlier today (Sunday) at the age of 71. I wasn’t too familiar with his comedy work, but I loved his work as Rufus in “Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure” and “Bill and Ted’s Bogus Journey.

Maybe I should drink more coffee…

I am not a morning person, so I definitely have to have my 2 cups of coffee every morning at work. A new study has concluded that regular coffee drinking (up to 6 cups per day) decreased the risk of death (mainly due to the decrease in the risk of death from heart disease.)
