Repo Man: I_Am_Weasel: 

And you're right.  Suicide is often the penultimate in selfishness, doing it this sort of way is doubly so.


What's the ultimate in selfishness then?


Yeah. Penultimate is a funny word. We seem to wish it to mean more than ultimate when in reality it means almost but not quite ultimate. Next week, we'll debate flammable versus inflammable.

Of course they jumped in front of a moving train, do you have any idea how long it takes to die if you jump in front of a stopped train?

itsaidwhat: lasercannon: Repo Man: I_Am_Weasel: scottydoesntknow: Actually I'm pretty sure they died within seconds of each other.

So you expected your wife to immediately bounce back from a BRAIN ANEURYSM? And since that didn't happen you decide to kill yourselves 2 months later? It can take a couple years to get over that shiat (former boss had an aneurysm years ago, still has some trouble but overall very functioning).


Yes, some may bounce back after jumping in front of a train, but it generally will not do them any good as it will often result in a bigger mess.

And you're right.  Suicide is often the penultimate in selfishness, doing it this sort of way is doubly so.

Taking the last donut.

So the penultimate in selfishness is taking only a bite out of the last donut?


Actually I feel that's worse. Not only have you taken the last donut, but you didn't even finish it and left it to suffer like a mortally wounded soldier on the field.. You just took a bite and ruined it for everyone else.

Farking bastard.

I'm pretty sure a podium is something you stand on; a lecturn is something you stand in front of and can put your speech down upon.  But I know people (at least where I work) use the term podium when they really mean lectern.

I think of it like "pod is to Podiatry = foot = stand on". "Lectern" sounds like "lecture.

If this helped, please press 1 if very satisfied....

I think the title in the URL would make for a pretty interesting article too:

Disabled wife devastated when husband kills a speeding train. Makes an apologetic call to their son.

Wanting suicidal people to stay alive against their own wishes as if being alive was a prison.

So what is the ultimate in selfishness?  I'm going to guess homicide.

That's where I stand on the subject, but peeing on the toilet seat is reason enough to move suicide to third.
