This is what I don't understand.
You've lived a good life. You're in relatively active old age or you've been diagnosed with a terminal condition. You've spent your whole life grabbing every opportunity, really living and loving every minute of it. So what would be a fitting tribute to a life so full of worth and pleasure? Spending your old age drooling into your lavender-scented blouse or cardigan....pegging it in a hospice while your terminal illness robs you of your faculties and your health, or.....
Tooling yourself up with as much weaponry and ammo as you can conceal underneath your girdle/piss bag and blowing the fuck out of Robert Mugabe before shooting yourself in the head before anyone can stop you?
Why don't people do this. The elderly might get a lot more respect if they made themselves useful in such a manner .
