    Re: RIP Tony Scott

    What exactly makes this guy great? Does dying and being moderately famous always make a person great?

    When I get that old, I hope I jump off a bridge (or something similar) as well.

    No offense to seniors on here - but what people see in old age is TOTALLY beyond me.
    Roger Daltrey sang: "Hope I die before I get old."

    He's old now, but enjoying new life by touring with The Who once again. No doubt, he regrets those lyrics.

    RIP, Tony Scott. I enjoyed The Fan not too long ago on Netflix, and thought it was an underrated movie.

    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    Why choose to jump 185 feet to your death? It takes a while to hit and what goes through the mind during those few seconds? This sound harsh but someone has to clean that mess. My neighbor put a deer rifle in his mouth and it took days to clean and remove carpet, dry wall, window curtains, the ceiling, floor boards, etc.
    It's nothing more than X's and O's.

    I'm reading the poor guy had inoperable brain cancer. Who knows how you will face your end when you have news like that.

    He was a maker of mediocre action fliks. His exit scene seems appropriate to the genre. RIP
    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    Not that I feel anybody should have a death more "special" or "meaningful" than anybody else (death is tragic regardless of how well known you are), but don't take it out on the poor guy. Just because he's famous it doesn't give reason to spite him after death. Especially a suicide.

    but that was kind of clever

    Possibly true, however, having watched someone die of cancer and knowing the pain involved ... I would like the opportunity to check out. Jumping from a bridge is not quick in my book. And being in a bed with more tubes in you than an automobile air conditioning system also rules out that option.

    Jack K. had it right. And I do not think you have to be crazy to check out.

    I agree with the cancer thing, I already have the beautiful spot on my land picked out where I will pull the trigger if that time ever comes. Does that seem morbid?

    Not at all. Eating a bullet is what I would do as well.

    I have a question though ... will the gubmet actually allow you to be planted there or is there some current or future zoning regulation that will stop it?
