The reasons a man might choose to die are as varied and valid as the reasons another man might choose to live. I stay alive because my curiosity about what this existence holds is stronger than my curiosity about what is on the other side of the veil. If the movie no longer holds our interest, who has the right to tell us to remain in the theater?[/quote]
I get his point though, because if you off yourself because you think you have seen it all and life is not worth living there is something you are missing.
You have not seen it all, how could you and if there is nothing you care about you have nothing to lose and are truly free.
Time to shake things up a bit.
Bike through India, open a call girl ring, learn how to drive a race car.
Pfffft, you wanted to kill yourself anyway.
Most people are not so much afraid of dying, they are afraid of living. [/quote]
Oh, don’t worry. I have no intention of ever snuffing myself. And interestingly enough, all three of your suggestions have both occurred to me and hold appeal. Regardless of how boring life might seem. Although in my case, I would bike across Indonesia, learn to fly an airplane, and open a video brothel, whereby the prostitution laws would be circumvented by the addition of a video camera (“those aren’t prostitutes, they’re actresses”).
