Once in a while I've woken up in hotel room in total darkness, aware only that I don't recognize the bed I'm in, and have no idea where I am. (not even aware I'm in a hotel room as I can't see a thing). It's bizarre and disconcerting.

But maybe that's more like full-blown Alzheimer’s than death.

I do not fear death.


I fear coming home at 2:00 in the morning and not having a good excuse........

This bodes well for this forum if we ever go to war with a micronation of system bettors led by President Logan. Our side may have fewer people, but 12 out of 16 not fearing death is better than militaries, what with all those 35-pound armor suits - we can take these pansies in a bayonet charge while they're cowering in their trenches.

that quote made me laugh, good one.

I don't think I fear death because I believe in the Resurrection, but I am a little scared of dying if that makes any sense.

I will say it does make sense, and I'll spare you the commentary.

Oh, BTW, I plan to live forever. So far so good :P

I knew life wasn't fair when the Catholic Church stop saying the mass in Latin. And me, a 2 year student of Latin at Mt. St. Joseph's in Catonsville. NO FAIR

Total sense. An unsuspecting strike to the head, not bad. Breaking a leg in the wilderness and wasting away for a week, very bad. I feel the same way.

I fear death in the sense that when faced with it, I fight it tooth and nail. Certainly, I'd suspect that nearly every living creature is the same way. But I'm not so scared I won't do things I want. I'd hate to fall 150' onto rocks, but the view from the edge of the gorge was great. I'd hate to suffocate, but I wanted to hold that 160lb python. I've nearly drowned twice and it was terrifying, but whitewater canoeing is so much fun.

I've always said I'd never tip toe through life just to arrive safely at death. Experiences like those listed above add value to my life. Fear would take that away.

One life. Live it.

The joke goes: grandpa didn't fear death; it was all his passengers screaming at the top of their lungs
