Death

By justathought ·
I would be interested and appreciate your views on death, the questions it brings into our life, the way it changes our world.

How does it affect the idea of our own mortality?

How does it alter our priorities and values in life?

The impact on our spirituality, for those who hold beliefs?

how does it affect our own "personal" identity?

Hmm

That's an excellent theory. I'm going to start crying every day to test it out. If I'm hairy as a gorilla and am anorexically thin by the end of the year, we'll know that this theory has some merit. Then I'll publish it in the Journal of the American Medical Association and reap millions from my discovery. Probably will even be nominated for a Nobel Prize.

I think we have the Nobel prize in the bag .. We can use the money to do some research on what to do with the wiper blades ...

Nobel prize money

by M_a_r_k In reply to Muuaahaaahaaahaa

I have to share the money? I think any man that voluntarily commits to baling his eyes out every day for a month should garner all the proceeds from his humiliating adventure. He should also be committed to an insane asylum.

Course you have to share the money ..

The theory is going to help you live longer ... you bale your eyes out for a month and get rid of all your bottled up emotions ...

Since I'll be living longer

I'll need more money to support myself in old age. I've been planning to go out in a blaze of glory as soon as I can get my rocket ready so I hadn't been investing for my retirement. So therefore, I will need all the Nobel money to support my noble balling experiment.

In that case ...

Lets make the share 49-51 .... instead of the even 50-50 ...

I need the money because I have to figure out what to do with the wiper blades...Besides, if I am going to be lighting a match under you rocket ... I need to leave some money to my future kids, in case your contraption blows up ...

You're a tough negotiator

by M_a_r_k In reply to Muuaahaaahaaahaa

except I'm tougher.

The wiper blades -- I thought you're going to give them to me for my rocket. If you have extras, sell them on eBay. Or better yet, sell them outright to the Smithsonian Museum or to NASA. The Smithsonian will want some remnant of my historic mission just like they have the original lunar module for public display. NASA will want the blades for whatever they plan to waste our tax dollars on next.

If my rocket blows up -- if these are in fact future kids that you are talking about, you won't have to leave money for them because my rocket will have blown you up before you've had them. If I don't launch until after you've had them, then bring them along to the launch party so they'll **** up with you.

By the way,

by stargazerr In reply to Muuaahaaahaaahaa

You are only going to be crying for a month ... we (women) have been bawling for centuries .. We have evolved that way ... so I am still going to be living longer than you ...

As for me blowing up ... I am using the wiper blades as an extension, so I will be far enough away.Even if your contraption does **** up in my face, I might get away with a missing nose ... I am going to need plastic surgery ...

I can do you a favor though .. I can give you $10 for a haircut after the month is over

Well, OK, because I'm a nice guy

by M_a_r_k In reply to Muuaahaaahaaahaa

and because you'll need plastic surgery to buy a new nose, I'll split it with you. How's a 92% to 8% split, sound? I won't be needing the $10 for a haircut. Even if I do not go out in a blaze of glory and I return to earth, I will have all the hair burned off my head from the fire on the sun.

If you think I will go down without a fight

by stargazerr In reply to Muuaahaaahaaahaa

You are right

Lets make it 90-10 .. and we are even ...

Out of the goodness of my heart, I will even let you take my pink fluffy slippers to wear as earmuffs..
