Thank you Matt Damon.
In other news, Microsoft is marketing a line of edibles ("Blue Food") and an app that will tell you when to eat it.
But the technology hasn't been "perfected" yet, of course. Using terrorist-target fuels and generating kilo-year-toxic waste really kills the attraction. So much so that you need military-grade oversight and liability limited by law in order to enable it. Somehow though, this is considered acceptable, and the industry is stuck there.
So the goal is (correct me if I'm misunderstanding) to have your choice, whatever it might be, available, identified, and enforced when you are dying, even if you're not of sound mind to help enforce it.
So let's work towards:
----letting people know what all their options are when dying,
----maybe making some options available that don't legally exist yet, if you find you want that.
----getting them - that's you - to choose you option(s) in advance, authorize it, and choose executors to help enforce it.
----eliminating the potential for slippery slopes (like being forced to die before you might be ready)
Because stuff doesn't change on its own.
Most of the above is available today. Fill out a POLST with your doctor, or get a blank and fill it out and sign it, with witnesses, today.
As far as stuff that's not available yet, Oregon and Washington have a Death with Dignity act.
i'm not buying it until they shrink the pixels to zero too.
But if they're just harmless water and carbon, why do they need to be dumped beyond easy reach? Hmmmm?
This is about my level of faith in the Cloud too. It's out there and it works for you, until it's not and it doesn't.
Agreed, FWIW. I love (loved?) the Winamp interface. I just wish it supported DLNA.
This might be the ultimate fate of FB and other social sites: to avoid being mis-represented or privacy-violated people may choose to delete their profiles and content.
>>perhaps even risking parole....
But definitely not risking reversal once the convict has been executed. There's been a pretty high rate (significantly > 0!) of wrongly convicted people on death row. I guess the solution to this problem is to kill them more quickly - ?
Don't they know that boycotts don't work?
Somebody please tell them, so we can go back to killing our convicts with propofol instead of just impunity.
with a capital "P", whatever its name is.
As others have said in other ways, this isn't compromised from the beginning, how?
Then I would also assume that a Court employee would be preoccupied with, um, fairness and justice. And obviously wrong both times.
Hair protects you from sun >> skin cancer, so take or splash on drugs, and later find that they're increased your risk of
I'll go with the hat.
Or, put another way, the court cannot perceive how it is the same as an extortion ring.
