It appears that every year, quite a large number of residents in the USA are killed by lawnmowers. :lmao:

Japan is the only country where people die of old age. :crazy:

This is as close as I have come to being killed by a lawn mower. Fortunately, that is just a video game.

Me? I will die in the Philippines, why? The Philippines is the only Country I have known in Asia in where when you die your body will be in Burial for 7 days and that is the time there will be a reunion and your relatives will meet each other and get to know each other.

In the future, malware will infect robots and they'll be programmed to kill all of the Malware Response Team. Scary, but true. :busy:


EDIT: I'll probably be in my office :)

Love that video!

Interesting odd fact: more people were killed by a fart in Egypt than any other country in the world. :hysterical:

Okay I need to be enlightened as to the circumstances behind dying due to flatulence :wacko: :wacko: People do that everyday at one point or another so there has to be more to this :whistle: :whistle: :whistle:

Well, it is carbon monoxide gas after all. So if your nose happened to be located at the business end of some fat egyptian who'd eaten too many baked beans that day, you might be on the receiving end of a lethal cloud. :rip:

I've had this odd thought for a while now.

Do people that die in their sleep know they are dead?

I know the answer is no, ( unless there is an afterlife etc.)

May be just the ambien talking. :blink:

It's an interesting subject actually. Presumably not since you're unconscious when asleep. It's a question of whether the act of dying is sufficient to wake you up, however briefly.

Also, since you've never died before, there's no way of knowing whether what you're experiencing is actually death, or some ailment or other.

I must admit I'm rather intrigued by Steve Jobs last words which were, quote: "Oh wow, Oh wow, Oh wow!". That being the case, I don't think I want to die in my sleep because I want to know what he was seeing, or experiencing.

Been there, done that. So I don't worry about the where and the how. Frankly, I really would not want to know.

Being told "You flatlined in the ambulance. One shock got your heart going again. You flatlined again just as the paramedics got you into the hospital. 3 more shocks and here you are still alive. You are not out of the woods yet-it could happen again and you can die" gives you a totally new perspective on life.

I've been told by several doctors that despite what you see on tv very few people who go through what I did survive. Well, not only did I survive I came out of it without having damage to my heart that they usually see in those who do survive.

That was 5 years ago and I'm doing great today.

You have a purpose here...

I am like a few others here - don't know, but accept it is coming. I too have been faced with my own mortality. You do see things in a much different light.

If I had to guess, I would say I will be killed in a car accident since I spend two hours a day driving. Next I would say I will be killed by a patient (their blood or bullet)/ or a fire.

Bottom line... I will be okay, and my family will be taken care of. :thumbup2:

I did also Queen-Evie in an OR when I was 16 many moons ago, but I did suffered heart damage which caused my R-wave to change. I've had to carry an EKG card in my wallet since then because my base-line EKG looks like I'm suffering a massive cardiac arrest in comparison to a normal EKG

Poor guy. I'm really sorry to hear that. It must be awful to have to live with a condition like that.

I developed arthritus is my knees four years ago which affects my mobility and causes me a fair amount of pain every time I take a step forwards or backwards, but it's not life-threatening and I've learned to live with it. My doctor tells me the only course of action now is a prosthesis to replace the knee joint, but I'll wait until I'm virtually immobile before I go that route I think.

But to have suffered a life-threatening condition like you guys have must change your whole outlook on life.
