Death by cancer

DEAD AT 79

cancer



WHY YOU DIE?
56% cancer
24% car accident
13% loneliness
5% drowning of the lungs
2% wounds


You have 21221.0 days left on this earth.
You've already lived 27% of your life.

Hopefully, there would be better cures for cancer by then. That would mean that I would die of a car accident, of course. What fun. Not as good as death by firing squad, but still.

In other news, I'm home! Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!
That's one 'e' for every day I'm staying here. wOOt!

Bite me if that's one too many exclamation marks for your liking.

Addendum:

I really liked this Lovecraft quote.

" That is not dead
Which can eternal lie,
Yet with strange aeons
Even Death may die. "

Note to self: Pick up one of his books soon.

Death by cancer? I wondering if car accident is better....

You know I checked the site out and apparently I'm too young for it. The closest I can get to my birthday is 31st December, 1987. Sigh... Maybe next year...

I'm curious.

How did Curiosity kill the Cat? No one seems to know.

The problem with cancer is not so much the dying but the living with it.

Depends on how severe the car accident is. I don't want to be one of those people who are completely conscious, able to talk, and have a metal beam running through them.

And curiosity killed the cat, not the human. At least, so I keep telling myself. :)

the quicker the better.

What human? There must be a story behind curiosity killing the cat. no one knows the story! I always imagined it to be one of those Aesop's Fables with the morals until I realised I didn't know it at all...

Umm... all I know about cats and adages is the story about how a cat always drank milk while closing it's eyes, and got burnt one day because it tried sipping something that was really hot.

How it could have seen the temperature is beyond me.

But wait! Why break our heads when there's wikipedia!

Tada! Ok, so it's not as interesting as I hoped it would be.

Sigh...yes. I expected a nice little story that you can tell kids...
