    I guess since I'm pretty much out of my middle age and on to my senior / elderly years, I'm thinking more about topics such as this.

    It's something to talk about, not sure if doing it over dinner is the way I'd go, though. My wishes are fairly simple, cremation and then have my ashes planted with a sapling.

    No, that's just terrible.
    You never know how many of your guests are contemplating suicide.

    thecoochiesthejuices saidthat's keeping it real. everybody should be writing a will these days to be on the safe side. you never know when time's up. that clock could stop any minute in the future. that's a topic appropriate for any age even kids.

    have discussions about death with my mom sometimes. told her to cremate me, pull the plug if i'm brain dead or living off of life support, to not hold some wack ass funeral with me in any religious based place or anything pertaining to religion and lastly but just as important, don't scatter my ashes in any part of the state of new jersey. scatter that shit in the upstate new york woods. she told me how she doesn't want us to be crying over her and etc. something that reminds you about your mortality.


    Yep, my grandfather died 49 years ago at about the age I am now of a massive heart attack .... there one minute and gone the next. I've had lifelong high blood pressure ... and a big guy with a very hot temper so I'm ripe for the same. Sure beats the way long painful process my dad went though. I'd much prefer to go the way my grandfather did, just a little later. So hell yeah, I'm thinking about this.

    EVERYONE should have a will. Period. The endless clusterfuck having no will causes is easily avoided by seeing a competent lawyer and having a will made up according to your state law. My partner's cousin is an estate and trust attorney, he set everything up for us, even making suggestions when asked after explaining all the possibilities.
