While I can understand Lisa being upset, I think cdale
is simply expressing an opinion, that being her opinion
of the best/worst way to die. Thats legal in my book.
I don't know about anyone else, but I often consider that
if I am stricken with a terminal illness, such as cancer
or HIV/AIDS, that I'd prefer to live my last days as
fully as possible. So, I've thought about maybe
stopping health care, keeping around some really strong
tranquilizers (for the day things get too bad), and
blowing all my money on something fun.
Perhaps as an alternative, sign up for a really risky
but fun job/assignment.
But thats just me..
