Does the runner-up get a chance to put their face in a deep-fat fryer?
Life is like a musical by Andrew Lloyd-Webber. Very popular and not as bad as some would have you believe. That is, unspeakably awful but mercifully brief.

Ok, you are far too relaxed with all of this. I can only express respect for your perspective on the matter. Even with the fox' humoursus take on it all.

That sucks. Can you retrain those fingers or something? Maybe it'll come back itself.

It's not as bad as it was, I've lost some flexibility some days worse than others.

It should get back to normal... at least there's no reason why it shouldn't.

has anyone started a death pool on this guy yet? if not i say august of this year

Last December I was told I had 5 months left so I'm almost in extra time which makes August quite a good punt. I do think think it's too broad, you could have the first week or second week, etc. It would give others a chance.

As Dave C points out how can you be assured you'll get reliable data that I am dead, after-all death would make posting a tad problematic.

i suppose I can add it as a codicil to my will that the executors come here to announce the date. Apart from the joy of being right what is there to win?


Have you given any thought to not dying? On the whole it's an overrated enterprise. Charmless

A man goes to the doctor. Says he's depressed. He says life seems harsh and cruel. Says he feels all alone in a threatening world where what lies ahead is vague and uncertain. The doctor says "The treatment is simple. The great clown Pagliacci is in town tonight. Go and see him, that should pick you up." The man bursts into tears. He says "But doctor... I am Pagliacci."

If I could choose I'd prefer a stroke than a violent death like stepping off a curb and bang get hit by a city bus. Zooloo: as long as your whole right side isnt paralyzed and you dont have to limp along the streets and speak out of the left side of your mouth its gonna be okay.

Mr G Reaper has denied your request.

According to him we are born immortal but it wears off.

It's only two fingers not quite right, I've been spared the Elephantman impressions.

I liked the film, it's the only time I've been in the cinema and people didn't rush out the moment the film ended... it was a little bit eerie when everyone stayed sitting there.

Must be because i've seen it on tv so it didnt work too well. On second thought I remember Anthony Hopkins being brillant as usual. In fact what I didnt like was the story. I thought it was grotesque. Not the performance.

I hate strokes. Never had one myself, but I still think they're pretty sucky. I suggest a long hot bath and a new hair cut and shave. That always makes me feel better.
