Actually, her longest memory of her dad will be when he puts a shotgun in his mouth to end his suffering and turns the kitchen wallpaper into a Rorschach

"People shouldn't wait to live until they're told they're dying,"

Very well put.  Words to live by.

Very inspiring.  Really makes me reflect on my own life and how much of it I've been utterly wasting.

Anyway, back to porn.

I object to the insinuation that porn is a waste of time.

Anyway, back to the TV

I always lose sight of how little I have to complain about.  Stories like this remind me.

Of course, they also remind me that I'll probably never do anything as amazing as what that guy did.

Found out last night that the 2.5 year old daughter of a good friend has a brain tumor. Again. Only 3 months after her last surgery to remove a tumor. They have already had three tumors removed and gone through radiation and chemo twice. Now the insurance denied approval for the trial medicine that was her last hope. He is quitting his main job to be with her for the few months she has left. I just hope we can support them in some small way as they have to go through this.

Sorry for the downer, but it has been eating at me all day and you unfeeling farkers won't care anyway. :) Maybe someone will come up with something to make me laugh (inappropriately).

/I has the sad.
//My youngest is 1 month older than her.

Insurance companies are evil. I want the entire health insurance industry nuked from orbit, then invaded by zombies pirates and the worst computer virus ever invented. And that's just day 1.

Im actually a always look on the bright side of life type. So, he has gotten busy LIVING,  which is nice. one tries to put off getting busy dying until they face the fire or the dirtnap. By face the fire i mean cremation.

That's great for the guy, and a good story. But just in case there are people in the thread who haven't heard of them, the above is a pic of Dick and Rick Hoyt. He's been doing this for years with his disabled son. But not just marathons, he competed in the iron man. He does the 2.4 mile swim portion by pulling his son in a boat.

Don't forget Connor and Cayden Long. 9 years old and does triathlon pulling his 7 year old brother.
