You would still have the same problem though. Plus it will take some getting used to seeing rows of elderly lying in dumpsters waiting to die.

Thanks to homeless, the Los Angeles population is already used to this. When you see them lying in dumpsters , you do not know if they are sleeping or if they have some type of health problem or if they are simply dead. Occassionally i approach some asking them loudly if they are ok. When they open their eyes, i simply go away. But who knows, it is quite possible that some day i passed a dead body without realizing it.

Once actually i read an article about the number of LA homeless who die in the street every year

That is true. But being slim, exercising, and taking meds for hypertension (if you have it) or high cholesterol (if you have it), and avoiding smoking or taking various nasty drugs, almost always will delay heart attacks until you are an old old person. At that point, one must accept that we all eventually die.

I could get used to that.

100 years ago no one expected heroic measures to keep people alive forever. Much less people who abused their bodies and took risks. Death was an accepted normal part of life.

Once Count Dankula finishes up his legal issues he's going to have to deal with those calling him a fat shamer...

Whatever happened to Smeadster?

IIRC he had some health problems, came out of the hospital and was in some sort of Convalescent home for recovery.

That's the last that I remember.

I tried to find his last post(s) but my search from his profile yielded this:

Quote:

Or perhaps the UK jackboots will just arrest him again for internet "hate speech"?

:lol: Watched that vid not long ago. Quite a mix of cringe and laughter.
