Tony Scott dead
« on: August 20, 2012, 12:54:39 PM »
Tony Scott jumped off a bridge in LA to end his life.  He was diagnosed with a fatal brain cancer.  I can understand why he would not want to go thru the pain and all but having to jump from a bridge seems wrong for a country that is suppose to be exceptional.  Why can't we help those who want to go under these circumstances go with dignity and no pain?

I love Tony Scott's films: True Romance, Crimson Tide, Enemy of the State, Man on Fire, Deja vu, Unstoppable, Taking of Pelham 123, Revenge etc.,

Great director and producer. So sad.

This thread is about lab-grown dicks, not some mincy, old, British poof of an actor. 

Let's get back on topic, please.

Tony Scott's mute last words

"You ain't the boss of me..."

...and agreeing with Nick, the fact that he had to jump in this day and age is absolutely unacceptable.  This too shall pass, but not soon enough.

I know personally I laugh at the idea that idiots can pretend to legislate to stop this behaviour, while causing it.
Idiots rule.

I show affection for my pets by holding them against me and whispering, "I love you" repeatedly as they struggle to break free.

I'm a strong proponent of death with dignity. In Washington state they have a law that says if you're terminal, with less than 6 months to live, you can choose your own time. I think its a very important step. I mean, c'mon, for my entire life I've been told that its the humane thing to do to "put down" an animal who's dying and in pain. And yet for humans, even if the patient really, really wants it, they're doomed to stick around through whatever pain and agony is in store for them, usually in the hospital, and often with extreme measures being taken to prolong the misery. My family has at least all signed living wills, but they don't go far enough. Its my body, my life. If I'm dying, I don't see why its anyone's business how I go out. I'd prefer to go out quietly, peacefully, and painlessly, in my own bed, surrounded by loved ones. That's how it should be. My choice.
If we ever travel thousands of light years to a planet inhabited by intelligent life, let's just make patterns in their crops and leave.

It should be your choice.  That is prob the next thing the Repubs will go after.  Remember Terri Shivo?

He was Ridley Scott's brother.
When I was a kid I used to pray every night for a new bicycle. Then I realised that the Lord doesn't work that way so I stole one and asked Him to forgive me.
