Drug resistant infections are going to be a very popular cause of death in the near future.

Burr: So pretty much every death now has a cause right?  I can't remember the last time somebody died of just "natural causes"


"Natural causes" isn't a thing

People die OF something. Some times, that's a lack of something...such as organ failure. But there is always a cause. Saying someone died of natural causes is childish, mealy-mouthed code for "I don't want to talk about actual grown-up stuff like why grandma actually died, and I'd rather BS you into thinking it was peaceful and painless and somehow dignified, so...yea, she didn't have renal failure and die in mortal fear of not being able to breathe while stewing in a filled Depends, it was "Natural Causes"...

Ambivalence: Almost any infection can be lethal when you're 91 years old.


91 years old also lends itself to a life in constant contact with facilities where you can pick up drug-resistant bugs.

I suspect people are misunderstanding the difference between "cause", "mechanism" and "manner" of death.  They're different things.

The cause of every death is ultimately heart failure.

Miss5280: Considering how hardened his immune system must have been from the thousands of STDs/STIs he's probably dealt with over the years, I'm surprised that anything like E. coli killed him.

/ I figured he'd die after tripping over one of his girlfriend's little dogs and falling down the big staircase in the mansion.


I wouldn't be surprised if there were open bulk bins of antibiotics on the premises for folks to chuck back a handful whenever they felt itchy. Hef could be patient zero for his very own new strain of resistant E. Coli, among other things. Hopefully he's being cremated.

I've been reading Seneca's letters on death, dying, and suicide, and natural causes are over rated

I think the term "contributed" here is a bit nonchalant when referring to a 91 year old.

Tax Boy: [media.tenor.com image 496x280]


Whenever I watch that movie, I can't help but think of my mom advising me to never go ass to mouth. Which is nothing compared to when grandma lectured me on the importance of lube.
