    Fade away? Like "dead Jedi becoming One with the Force" type of fading away? Or like "getting dusted by Thanos finger snap" type of fading away? Or will you implode to Inner Space like the Frielings's house in Poltergeist, and go into the Light?

    I wouldn't want the eaten by a bear thing - that seems like it would take several minutes for the bear to devour you and snack on your intestines.

    If you're going to the mountains, just find a cliff to jump off. Nice and quick.

    I would OD on painkillers in the woods in the winter.

    Jumping off a cliff carries the risk of not quite managing to kill yourself and instead living a long and miserable life in a hospital bed eating through a tube.

    Speaking of gallows humor at Fort Rucker I knew a guy who shot himself. He only had two or three years to retirement, a long career after that as a contractor if he wanted it, a wife and two great sons, etc. etc.
    When I told my wife about it she said "what was going through his head?" and I told her "a nine millimeter bullet apparently!" :shrug:

    I guess you had to be there.

    True. I want to know if the creators of TNG brought that character in as an identifiable character for ST fanboys.

    That sounds like the old joke of how many packs of cigarettes does it take to stop a bullet? 2 pack

    I’ll go down to the beach and just swim out into the ocean until I can’t swim any more.

    I would avoid pills myself. From what I can see it is not terribly reliable as the body might vomit or somehow survive. It is also slow and allows for rescue. If you are going to go the painkiller route just get a crapload of heroin and slam that shit into a vein. Really, you don't want to wake up to massive organ failure and some brain damage.

    Yikes! So sorry to hear of this.

    If it wasn't so damned expensive, I'd send you some genuine U.S. peanut butter. ;)

    think of it like "surprise" and "surprising".
    "shock ending" is quite correct.

    so about 30 seconds worth for me - would I even be over my head by that point? :lol: yeah my swimming ability sucks. :no: I must be very dense - well above the neck that's for sure!

    yes that does make sense I guess - but for some reason "shock" versus shocking just sounds awkward & wrong to my ears. :shrug:

    I'm hoping for critical system failure of whatever in my sleep... don't wanna think about it.
    Had a friend who drowned in the tub after taking her regular meds a couple years ago... I suspect Chup is something similar given the info to date.
    Shitty thing is not wanting to die so much as simply not having a reason to live....

    Anthony Bordain really threw me for a loop - rich, famous, talented with a hot girlfriend. :jayzus: Evolution needs to get rid of that part of the human brain that would make us suicidal.
    Anything in your brain that can override the "stay alive" mechanism has to go, sooner versus later. No other species does this unless it's a ploy to lure predators away from the rest of the group or something.

    I don't think we have cliffs in the Ramapos. They're the gentle-rolling Appalachian kind of mountains. Best I could probably manage is a 15 foot drop onto a moss bed and a long roll downhill.

    Here's a view from halfway up the 'ridge' I live on looking west across to the next ridge. Not much in the way of cliffs. Just forest over there, no roads, and a couple of miles until the next town.

    film it! With slow motion and artful editing it would be EPIC! Or it would make a good shampoo commercial....either way I'd watch it.

    Would make a fun scene.

    Woman running down a wooden corridor, sunlight from between the beams strobing over her terrified face, her wide eyes. A metronomic rhythm of a stump hitting the floor as her pursuer moves relentlessly forward.

    She reaches a door, but it's locked, and she starts to bang on it crying in terror, and you hear the asthmatic repetition of "onefineday... onefineday..." getting louder as the stumping comes ever closer.

    She screams in desperation, slapping the locked door frantically "Please, someone, anyone, he's threatening to educate meeeee"

    Drowning is not my first choice.

    .357 Magnum to the brain. Good night.
