You never know, dying could be awsome. We will never know until....

Never been there, never done that. Who knows, maybe it's better than green eggs and ham.

I think the thing that is worse than death is knowing you didn't live a full life, and didn't make the most of it and your potential. Dying knowing your life was wasted is probably the worst thing in the world.

i think that being kept alive via life support while in a persistive vegetative state would be worse than death.

I worry more about leaving my family behind than death itself.

Yeah I agree with that, that would be the worst part. Leaving everyone else behind

I thought it was crap. Pretentious crap except lacking the true intellect to make it pretentious in the first place. Two of the most excruciating hours of my life.

As for the original question - in my experience when you see the worst of humanity, you also tend to see the very best. It is a strange paradox. But it mostly makes life brilliant.

I liked the movie, and my ex-wife who's not even a big U2 fan loved the movie. I thought it was OK but she loved it. I thought it was better than End of Violence and Until the End of the World, two other Wim films.

But now back to the topic.

there is no such thing as a painless death, think of all those who love you, there is pain there, I had a friend commit suicide as a way out 4 years ago, he was in pain and I hope he is in a better place, but there is pain to all of us who loved him.
