U mean: provenance (history of title) ?

As I remember, the English used to give farmland
to disabled military personnel.

If he were disabled enuf, how coud he work it?

Maybe hire some serfs ?

@OmSigDAVID,
Snopes has several explanations for "bought the farm".

Thanx for trying, Firefly, but this is error,
judging by the fact that during war,
soldiers who were permanently disabled in battle
and were being removed in medical evacuation
were optimistically told by their compatriots
that thay had "bought the farm" or had gotten "the million dollar wound."

Thay 'd not be celebrating fatal injuries.

Achieved a state of decomposure (makes it sound like an accomplishment)
or
Transitioning into dust (makes it just another phase of the life cycle)

Actually, I don't think I ever use any euphemisms for death or dying.

@OmSigDAVID,
I do like the thought of a 'passing' or 'transition' because we don't know what is really happening beyond the fact that the person who is dying is leaving this reality and moving on to whatever the next stage is - even if it's nothing.

I was able to be with my father when he died and it seemed exactly as if he was passing away from us and into or on to something else. I don't know what...but I know what I saw and it was definitely a passing (away from where and what he'd been).

When I was informed of my mother 's alleged death in the hospital,
in my cousin 's kitchen, I passed out of my body; very abruptly.
I felt like I was liquid (the REAL me) and got squirted up about a 15 foot distance,
into blackness. I was aware of the scene below, including myself.
If u 'd have been a witness, u 'd have seen a guy marching very formally
around the room shaking hands with my relatives, solemnly thanking them
for their support during the final months of my mother 's earthly life,
but that thing marching and thanking was only a robot, a false front.
The real me was above, fugitive in darkness for a few moments, aware of the scene below.

People who have returned from death
( = no EEG, no EKG, no respiration for a while)
have been resentful of their rescue. Some of them have complained
that it was like being put back in jail, or forced into a mayonaise jar.

@OmSigDAVID,
Death merely needs to be better defined as a state from which there is no reversal. Certain enzymes in reserve can act like an epi shot to kick a stalled heartbeat for several minutes since a last normal sinus rhythm. I know you are a big fan of NDE but the Full death experience still has had no reports .
Galapogos Iguanas can stay pout underwater with no heartbeat for up to an hour and return to "life" as can frogs held in torpor dur to freezing in their burrows. That doesnt mean they enjoyed a NDE.

The consciousness of a man, the REAL MAN, can leave his human body
while he is actively going around doing his daily activities.

Some of my own included separating from my material body
while I was actively taking testimony in court; this happened
3 times in the NY Supreme Court, over several years.

Playing with words and jiggling definitions does not change what happens in Nature.

That would be signs of mental illness, Om.

Nope - I've met him and I'm still here (as in alive = living and breathing).
Healthy too! No sign of dying/imminent death.

"Passed away."

Ok so I don't think it's that good really but it must be terribly popular because I hear it all the time and it DRIVES ME NUTS!

... Must be time for my medication ...
