Thatís hard to believe.


I would say the same. It might be easy to say it now...but I suspect no one would react casually to a death sentence, unless you were psychotic.

People's reaction to possible death can vary quite a bit. The same woman who will scream when she sees a spider might charge a grisly bear threatening her child.

I may be wrong but until that time comes I really don't know. I was expected to die when I was 13 years old but obviously I didn't. I have had 22 or 23 operations and I assume that is what "called" me to work in the medical industry when I was younger. I dealt with dying patients on a somewhat regular basis. Most of them were terminal so I was around death regularly.

I HATE when a sportscaster mentions that player x definitely deserved to be selected for the Pro Bowl but WILL NOT mention which player should be removed. Pretty much every Bills announcer has been crying about Justin Poyerís exclusion, but I have not heard ONE yapper say who he should replace.

Same issue arises for the MLB, NBA and , NHL all star games, and oh yeah, the NCAAB tournament. FYI. Robert Tonyan should be added and Evan Engram shod be replaced

When people accelerate full speed up to a stop sign and slam their brakes at the last second.

Why do the people at the players club ask me if I've had a card before when I give them my ID and ask for a card? There is no purpose to that question. If that information is not kept on file, there is no reason for the the players club to exist.

The people at the cage should stop asking me "Do you want large bills"? The number of ways you could pay me for my $245 slot ticket is huge. The default should be to do it in the fewest pieces of currency possible (or as reasonably close as they can get with whatever they have on hand). Then if I want a different collection of bills I will ask. The only reason why I am even going to the cashier and dealing with a person is because the ticket redemption machine doesn't give out all $100 bills.

You should just ask them next time. I can think of a reason but not a good reason.
