So it's sort of absurd to think about death except as a practical plan to use your time as you will look back on with satisfaction.

Get your book done. get rejected by a girl too hot for you, buy the guitar you want, go to that far off country before you go to the Undiscovered Country.

Death is not to fear but slow death is. Particularly slow painful death.

RE: Fear of illness, old age and dying alone
How old is the OP?

I bet I am double his age or close to it.

I don't worry about dying, I worry about living.

Living a life that is fun, exciting and rewarding.

For the dude talking about checking out by the time you are 40, yeah let me know how you did it once you reach that point.
