Subject: On the issue of never choosing death...
Date: Wed, 30 May 2001 11:00:09 -0700

Several different individuals have expressed their views on this issue and
supported their positions fairly well.

The idea that one should NEVER choose to die can be challenged quite
effectively by (to paraphrase the BBC lead character in the comedy
television series "Black Adder") my taking you into another room for five
minutes with THIS pencil!

With sufficient applications of physical pain I suspect anyone can be made
to beg for death and mean it!

I suspect my supposition is true though I have no intention of testing it!

Best Wishes,

George Smith
