Oh no, so sorry the school officials you shipped your kid to since you couldn't be bothered to raise him yourself found out he died before you did.

At least he was hit by a Range Rover and not a Hyundai or a Kia. How horrible would that have been? You'd never be able to show your face at the country club after that.

Gyrfalcon: doglover: I don't think that's such a problem. They were already aware their son was in the hospital greviously hurt and they were en route. It's not like the school didn't contact them ASAP. And quite frankly, if you send your kids to boarding school, they're out of your family for the time and part of that organization. That organization has an obligation to its members when something happens to one.

Tragedy, but compared to the Syria situation and stuff like that it's a non-issue.

Yeah, mostly this. Welcome to the age where instantaneous communication is now possible. Yes, it was very sad that someone at the school jumped the gun; but would the parents be "suing the school" if one of the kid's classmates had found out and posted it on his Facebook first without the school's knowledge? Or would they now be suing the doctor for daring to pronounce the boy dead before the parents could get there first?

I now foresee a whole new era of people being kept alive on breathing machines so this doesn't happen--"Yes, your son died 14 hours ago, but we didn't dare pronounce in case you felt like suing us because his friends wanted to tell you how sorry they were ahead of your official grief?"


The whole doctor pronouncing you dead thing, that has to go in garbage.

You're dead when you're dead. We have to define what that means specifically, but it doesn't matter if there's even another human in the galaxy you're in when you die. It doesn't matter if medical science finds a way to resurrect you after you die. The fact is when your body is dead it's dead and that's it. The doctor's pronouncement is a legal formailty from the age of lawyers, which is an age whose time has come. We must reject the lawyers and those who support their dark arts like the Aztecs abandoned human sacrifice and became the Mexicans.

I'm having more heart surgery in the next few months. But compared to the Japanese bombing Pearl Harbor and stuff like that it's a non-issue.

(you see how maybe you're making slightly unfair comparisons?)

I see the normal FARK hate for anyone successful is alive.

The reason you can't send your kid to a high-dollar school is because you are a LOSER. You are stupid and/or lazy, most likely both. Just because you will never, ever do anything significant in your whole life is no reason to relish the death of another persons kid. FARK all of you.

The school did nothing wrong as schools are above the law. If you don't believe me, just ask them.

Dear Penthouse Forum:

30k a year for tuition and the school couldn't be troubled to work in "look both ways before crossing the road" into their curriculum? I'd be pretty litigious if I were paying that kind of money and I hadn't taught my kids the basic rules of crossing the road before preschool.
