Re: Should you worry about being a little bit overweight? (PM Modern Medicine Friday, 03 April 2015) – Why is it I know more healthy (usually fronted by 4 beers and a pack of ciggies), senior fat people than thin ones? Old people, in general, cost everybody a lot of money so why make all these time consuming, money gobbling, ideas, machines and, replacement parts to keep us alive? Better a more sane way to take a “Final Exit” (stolen from Hemlock Society writings), when/if a person decides it’s time to go as many have and had to use painful/ugly/often unsuccessful means. “We shoot horses don’t we”, (more stolen words from another writer).
