Is the chance of dying by "legal" execution actually close to the same as dying from lightning or bee/wasp/hornet stings? That seems odd. If it's so that is truly pathetic.

Most of us don't have a choice in "how we die." When our time comes, it just does.

@kickycan,
Hey, Kicky, there's such a thing as a fate worse than death (ahem):

@cicerone imposter,
Tell me not, in mournful numbers,
Life is but an empty dream!
For the soul is dead that slumbers,
and things are not what they seem.
Life is real! Life is earnest!
And the grave is not its goal;
Dust thou art; to dust returnest,
Was not spoken of the soul.--H w Longfellow

@Robert Gentel,
I have a poorly functioning heart valve, which will eventually need to be replaced.

I have plaque in my arteries, which is controlled by Plavix, which keeps platelets from sticking together. The bad news is that if I get the slightest cut, I bleed like a stuck pig.

I don't know exactly how I will die, but apparently my body is setting me up with numerous possibilities. I do know one thing, though. Either I will drop like a rock, or if I become involved in a protracted death scenario, I plan on taking matters into my own hands.

@kickycan,
I just got back from the doc's. My liver is in swell shape, blood chemically speaking. And my cholesterol is screaming on the good side. Ring a ding ding, pass the Maker's Mark and that bowl of ice, which others push to the side, room temperature being better for flavor, lack of dilution, etc.
Temperance, as in less is more for longer, renewed motto.

Please, no lectures on booze=bad. I think binge culture is bad.

(Keeping eye out for sinkholes..)

Death is something I want some control over, unless that turns out to be impossible.

Dys and I have talked about having something around that will assist in suicide if we have some terribly painful, long lasting disease.

Dys' mother had made plans for taking her own life, if she developed a severe illness,with the help of her doctor, who provided medication that would do the trick. She seemed set, until she got alzheimers and forgot all about it. Mercy!

@mysteryman,
Just about like wilso, looks like, mysterman.
My hubby says he wants to take a hang glider off a cliff if & when he gets any bad news of the terminal type! I haven't thought about it that much. Too busy livin'!
S'pose you could call me a smart aleck, but I think I remember something I read once about all deaths being caused by lack of oxygen to the brain - some science journal or something.

@OGIONIK,
I smoke daily 40 DUNHILL which costs 10 Euro.
I have no cancer. Churchill is a chain cigar smoker.
he died out of old age.
But death will come and we all leave this planet one by one.
Be brave and fear not about death.
Make jokes and help the local community.
sing some song and walk a little.

@High Seas,
Then there was the one about a man who went to see his doctor. He came out of the doctor's office and told his wife that the doctor wanted to see her.

She went in and the doc told her that unless she cooked gourmet meals every day, had sex whenever her hysband wanted it and kept the house sparkling clean, that her husband only had six months to live.

As she came out of the doctor's office, her husband asked her what the doc said. She replied, "Oh, he said you have about six months to live..."
