Angel of Death

Greetings

I'm co-modding here now as well. If the community gets spammed and the main mod isn't around just contact me on the bat phone.  I'll hop the first plane to Russia, stab them in the face, slaughter their entire family, and then burn their village to the ground.  Or I'll just delete their posts.  I'll leave the decision of their fate up to you, dearest subscribers.


Death, so called, is a thing which makes men weep, and yet a third of life is passed in sleep.

I saw a man die once

..it was in a parking lot. He lay there pissing himself on the cold concrete with his groceries scattered about (a container of sour cream rolling away from him - I helpfully stopped it with my foot) and none of the dozen people that were milling there (including myself) knew CPR. I thought of just thumping him on the chest as I had seen on tv but I didn't. I regret it now, I am human after all. Watching the person that DID thump him on the chest as his lips turned blue and his life's breath floated above him I realized that I should have pushed the person away and thumped him in my own fashion but I did not. I was gutless and walked away after a while, groceries in hand and delicately stepping over the thin stream of urine to my car. Wiping the snot and tears from my face in the car I realized that life was indeed brutal and set out thereafter to take a CPR course. I didn't take that course, instead I decided to take a lazy and convoluted course and have a child that would take it for me years down the road. One day when I myself am laying in a parking lot with a thin stream of urine emanating from my crotchal area, I hope that she will be with me. As an afterthought, I guess I could have thumped him as hard as I could, in a blood-crazed frenzy. Who would have stopped me? Anyone else see someone die?
