Sitting in my car at a 4 lane intersection, waiting with a couple dozen cars waiting for the light to change, I thought:
Wouldn't it be fun to have a fake gruesome head or a big snake that you could hang upside down from the end of a telescoping pole that you could poke out your window and extend it out to the front of the car in front of you and hang over their front window?
We have heard anecdotes about the reactions from people just seconds before they die, such as when Steven Jobs died, he said Oh WOW! and died moments later. And we hear from people who have had NDEs (Near Death Experinces) where they were clinically dead for short periods, and they come back and tell us of the amazing beauty they saw on the other side.
And for the people who experience those NDEs and come back, they often tell of refusing to die, that there was someone or some people they still wanted to spend more time with, such as their children.
I wonder how often people in those situations actually have an option of refusing to die, and how many of them are so overcome with the beauty on the other side that they think - heck, this is nice - I'm stayin'!
Seems like more and more over the past decade you can tell whether someone is more likely to vote Republican or Democrat by figuring out first and foremost which upsets them more:
How little the rich have to pay in taxes or how little the poor have to pay in taxes.
