After riding motocycles for decades I did a living will with my sister's law firm. A DNR is in order &lt;Do Not Resesitate&gt; so none of that nonsence could happen to my family. I am gonna leave my bad attitude to KATO...he needs one!! /ccboard/images/graemlins/wink.gif

My family doesn't need money, and I have no (known /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif) dependents. If I get hit by a truck tomorrow, might as well spend mine keeping me alive until they can perfect human cloning. Or pay someone to wipe my hard drive before mom comes to the house.

I just finished mine and sent it to my daughter (lawyer) for review.

I basically stated that if I am not conscience and it's more than a hangnail, I'm outta here. I value life a little but not mine in particular, especially if I can't do what I want and be where I want to be.

<font color="blue"> Why do we call it a "Living Will"? Wouldn't "Dying Will" be more appropriate?

Why call it a "Will" when you "Won't"?

Doesn't "Will in Testate" sound a little gay?

Could someone make up a "next to last will and testement"?

The shortest Will ever written was simply "all to Mom". It was protested because he had often referred to his mother and wife as Mom.

If you leave it all to your cat, does her kittens get it after the cat dies?

Can John Edward change you will after you die if you ask him to?

If you declared that you wanted to take it with you, would they bury the money with you?

If cloned, could you leave it to yourself?

If you murder your benefitciary, can their survivors sue you in civil court for theft and loss?

Just curious...

Sounds like a disease that may result in sore cojones

If you're like me, you don't need one.

You make jokes about some extremely serious [censored].
It really ain't funny.

Cool! My daughter is a lawyer too. Lawyer daughters can come in very handy sometimes - I know mine does.

<font color="blue"> Troy,

Lighten up. If you think no one should ever make fun of death, wills and such, you have not been paying attention to life and death as well. I didn't make fun of the discrete suffering of an individual, just a couple of silly questions about wills, not human tragedy.

If I offended your personal sensitivities to death, I do apologise as I certainly don't want to offend someone who holds death and wills in such serious esteem. </font color>

Deeman
really didn't know wills were such a sensitive PC topic, really...

When you've walked in my shoes, then you can talk to me about lightening up.
Until then, your so-called "jokes" aren't the slightest bit funny to me.

I have been lucky enough to have never been seriously ill but have been faced with a situation where my death was a real possibility and in the end it just didn't really matter. In the last few weeks we have seen the ridicules circus surrounding the Terri Schiavo case, while at the same time everyday soldiers whose names we will never know are dying in Iraq. I think the longer you live the more you see what an absurdity life is.
