I am a diner and would happily accept an organ.
Whoa there! This thread took a turn! :-D
(Sorry I saw it and couldn't resist, that's the funniest typo I've seen in some time, lol)
I believe eve that life is a wonderful thing, and if we can do anything to prolong it or enrich it then all the better by me.
Life isn't a wonderful thing @tricia3006.
It has wonderful moments, but the truth is that if you actually break down what life is into it's constituent parts you'll find what it is really like.
For instance did you know the average human being is reckoned to spend a whopping 33 years of their life sleeping or trying to get to sleep? Or that we spend almost a year of our lives stood in queues?
That's 34 years gone to absolutely nothing. Just wasted.
Then you've got the eight years, (rounding down), that we spend in front of the telly, and the three years and rising, (rounding down), that we spend looking at our phones and all of a sudden that's 45 years gone.
Add twelve years of work, a year and a half of overtime and a year of school, (excluding university), and you're now up to a whopping 59 years gone and you've yet to do a single thing that you actually want to do.
I'm sorry to be Debbie downer here, but all this "life is wonderful"/"life is a gift" stuff is nonsense. It's literally the stuff of fantasy.
In an average 80 year lifespan we only get about eight years for the good stuff and even then we still have to make the effort and work hard to get that good stuff, many simply can't be bothered a lot of the time because they're too tired from all the other stuff, or they're ill, or some other reason.
I'm serious, break it down, then come back and tell me that it's "wonderful" or "a gift" and worth prolonging, (which only tags time onto the end when your body is breaking down and you're becoming less and less able over time, as you slowly fade away to nothing).
Like I said, sorry to be Debbie downer, but I can't tell myself the lies that other people do, I can't bury my head in the sand and pretend it's all roses. Like I said, there are wonderful moments, but most of it...
