I know you mean death, but let's play with another alternatives. Which is worse:

- Going back to the clueless days of your mid-30s where you still clung to the idea that you're immortal; or

- Going forward to your late 70s where that immortality idea is but a fleeting memory and you know your body is slowly going to kink out on you?

For the last couple of weeks my mojo has been nogo. I got new paint, I got a new brush ,and every time I look at a model it's meh.

I want to, but I can't move.

We're getting dark in this thread, aren't we? My body is already failing and I haven't reached 50 yet. I'm just hoping to build some more starships before I keel over.
