    I've been considering a tattoo on my chest that reads "DNR - and if you do I'll be seeing you in court!"

    It is comforting to know if need be you can check out on your own terms.
    What was interesting was who got this over the line....country conservative politicians...those guys say no to everything! They head the no vote for same sex marriage.....which also looks as if its going through in regards to the voluntary postal vote.

    Why is there any need for lawyers to get involved?
    The Problem with DNR is that you must have actually "died" before they become effective.
    It is amazing how long a terminally ill person can remain alive against their will.

    Re: Hooray! You can now die with dignity in victoria

    One of the conservative politicians said she didnt vote on account of her personal experience but her mefical experience in which she wittnessed a young man who had cancer screaming in pain only hours before his death. Nobody would wish that on their child. And its just not fair to allow a young person to die like that.lets face it that didnt need to happen. You dont want to be a parent relieved at the death of their child just so theyre not in pain anymore.

    Religious institutions and hospitals can ignore DNR directives too because it goes against their religious beliefs. In the US Catholic organizations have been buying up many of the hospitals.

    My kids sometimes ask me how they're going to find me. I tell them it won't be messy, but I'm sure it will be startling no matter how used to the idea I try to get them.

    How is it a quick death just because youre shot? What are they using? Elephant guns?
    Thats a silly argument! How many have tried to shoot themselves in the head and missed the target.....and thats at point blank range

    Who knows what is and isn't "quick" when it comes to death. I'd bet that in many cases the brain continues to function after the body quits. Near-death experiences seem to support that idea.

    My kids think im morbid because i have plans and in bad circumstances a date (which ill never disclose to anyone, dont worry its a long way off and subject to change) ....they have no problem with my funeral ideas though.....except for one comment "what if we cant get the worktime off" there's a sign of the times! And exactly why i have plans.
