Re: The question of the day thread

I gotta go with B.

Though C sounds tempting, I can be a total ***** for no apparent reason and get away with it.

B.) I'm guessing I will still be sexually attracted to women after I get reassigned so I'll probably just hook a U-Haul trailer to my Ford Super-Duty and head on down to the local Dykes on Bikes watering hole.

Re: The question of the day thread

This is BBV4L. Our attention span and intelligence level sometimes get in the way of good threads having long lives.

We need another good death or dismemberment challenge, involving ridiculous amounts of money, and celebrity women.

Imo, too many QOTDs along the lines of "Which would you prefer: (a) something terrible, or (b) something disgusting?"

Re: The question of the day thread

+1

Questions don't really invite any type of discussion. Basically, it's : A blablabla, and I'll come back tomorrow for the new question.
Maybe a lack of dedicated posters as well.

Re: The question of the day thread

QOTD

You are at the doctor’s office and he has just informed you that you have approximately one month to live.

Do you tell anyone/everyone you are going to die?
What do you do with your remaining days?
Would you be afraid?

Re: The question of the day thread

What's the point in not telling anyone? I'm not posting it on facebook, but will definitely inform all persons in my social circle.

Try and get a loan, or just sell everything I have & start doing the things on my bucketlist.

It's hard to imagine being told this, so I can't really say. I'd like to think I wouldn't be afraid but I probably will be. How do I die? Is it slow and painfull or will it be quick and painless?

Re: The question of the day thread

Reason for not telling anyone; so your final days aren't surrounded by people crying, and asking "how are you doing?".

How about; the death comes as 24 hours of increasing pain until you pass out from the pain, and never recover.

Re: The question of the day thread

I understand your reason for not telling people. But I'd rather deal with those type of questions, then to leave my family and friends with a bunch of unanswered questions when I'm dead.

If that's the way I'm going to die then yes, I'd definitely be scared.

Re: The question of the day thread

ok... so mixed feelings about telling people:

1) I'd want to tell my closest, but it would make them really upset and i don't want that
2) If i don't tell them and then die, they would find out from the doc that i knew and they would be REALLY upset.

I guess i would tell them, and give them time to come to terms with it.

I guess i would keep living my life as i do, maybe arrange 1 last vacation, or try and do things i've always wanted to do. Just mainly try and have fun.

I'd be afraid for sure. Not of death, but what comes after. My biggest fear would be leaving my family behind and them living on normally/sadness

Cliffs: I think about this often but **** it

Re: The question of the day thread

I'd tell my family, but I would have to leave them with 2 days left and die alone.

Re: The question of the day thread

I would probably tell my parents but then make them tell everybody else. I aint dealing with that ****. Then I would most probably spend all of my savings going to Vegas and other fun places. I really don't think death is something to fear but lets be honest I have no idea if I would be afraid or not.

Re: The question of the day thread

i would probably tell my family and close friends immediately. Then party, bungie jump etc for 3 weeks. Then on the last week I would have my funeral. I would literally attend my own funeral which would be like a party with jokes, and drinks etc. i would make alot of jokes about my own death. The with 24 hours left, I would volunteer to put myself in one of those medically induced comas, cuz Im not with excruciating pain until I die.

Re: The question of the day thread

I wouldn't tell anyone. If they are going to be sad after I die, so be it, but I'm not spending my last 30 days having everyone feel sorry for me because I am checking out and there isn't a thing they can do about it so I don't want them to feel guilty.

I will make a video/DVD that will explain everything after I die. I'll also say a few nice things about all of the people that I've encountered in my life, how much they have meant to me. This record will allow those in my life to check in with me if they ever feel the need.

Actually, this question hits home with me right now. A few nights ago I got a text from a friend of mine that I have known since high school. More than 30 years. Another friend of ours died March 23 this year. Just turned 50. I had lost touch with Kip over the years but I thought about him the day my friend Shannon told me he had died. I had been looking at used sailboats on Ebay and I ran across a Hobie catamaran for sale. Kip and I had plotted and schemed to try and buy a Hobie 16' when we were about 19 or 20 years old. The night she sent me the text telling me she had just heard he died. She told me he had asked for my number sometime back but I never heard from him and I didn't know she had been in contact.

I had hoped to run into him again one day. I know it wasn't the same scenario as the question, just a death and dying topic.

Re: The question of the day thread

Why are people so focused on spending the last days alone?

I'd tell my friends "Ok, so I got another 30 days to live due to a rare disease. In the next 5 minutes you'll have time to tell me how sorry you feel for me. After these 5 minutes have past I don't want to hear about anyone feeling sorry. I only have 30 days left to enjoy. Let's make this a month for you all to remember and for me a month worth dying for".

If I could count on them blubbering for only 5 minutes it would be terrific but I know my 76 year old mother would cry every time she sees me and my 76 year old father might have the final heart attack of his life worrying. The rest might agree to my terms but in reality they'll feel like crap for the next 30 days and feel guilty if they tell me no when I call them up and say, "Hey, let's go grab a beer, some hookers, and some blow. I've only got 30 days left."

I may do something that I've never done before, like bang a hooker, but I don't want anyone guilted into hanging out with me. My parents will already have to deal with the grief of losing a child, even if I'm old, and I won't start their misery early. But now that you bring it up, I might ask them if they would want to be told so they could prepare for it.

Today's question is based on that horrible way of dying thread.

Would you rather be eaten by a shark, burned alive, or drown in a pool of poop?
Eaten by shark all day them uver 2 must suck

Yeah I understand that. I'd probably leave it up to them though. They're wise enough to decide whether or not they want to see that. And I would prefer to give them a choice rather then keep quiet and die alone in a corner somewhere.

who's talking about a grandma? I was talking about friends. You'd feel bad for them to be forced to participate in your activities? To hell with that man, if they're good friends they would offer it themselves.

Even in the case of my friends, at my age of 48, my friends aren't going to be as carefree and available as we were 20-30 years ago. Getting drunk and buying hookers and blow takes a toll on us old farts. We need recovery time and sometimes that just doesn't fit in. Plus most wives aren't going to be happy with the hookers at all and probably not the blow.

I envy that you young turks can go out in a blaze of glory. I'll be rolling out on my Hovaround or Rascal scooter in a bathrobe and slippers.

Well at least you had the pleasure of becoming twice as old as me. As it wouldn't exactly be my dream to die young. But I understand what you mean and the situations differ like night and day.
