    No, not bad at all.

    However, and I am definitely going out on a limb here when I say this, I don't think you were ever truly unafraid of death. All too often people make such claims. They sit by idley dicussing, philosophizing and intellectualizing their so called "Absent fear of death". But they do so from the safety and comfort of thier own living room or while at dinner with friends or at a book reading. Nothing is ever frightening when it is merely an abstract concept. But fear is a part of survival - part of the genetic fabric of all living creatures. Including us. If you were trekking through the low lands of Alaska or the jungles of India while being stalked by some large predator, leading a small convoy of Marines through the inner streets of Bahgdad, or find yourself shackled and uniformed while being processed into a maximum state penitentiary - Fear is no longer abstract but real. Very real. This is not to suggest that you are without courage. A person can face death by risking life if they know it is something that has to be done and yet still be inherently afraid of dying. Nor is there anything wrong with being afraid. It is a very human thing. Hell, it is an inevitalbe living thing.


    Anyways, congrats on beating your cancer.

    thanks, and I never had cancer, I had the prelude and it was caught in time.

    Meanwhile, I do get your point and when I said before on that other forum, I did not fear death, I was told then 'you will if ever you are faced with it'. And so that moment came. Rather swiftly after the comment was made as it happens.

    When I say I did not fear it, I mean (forgetting instinctive survival drives) I almost welcomed it. The same way that very old people do, they grow weary of life. I guess I wasn't a very happy person.

    BUT with regards to those wild beasties, I've been faced with those and I did not run. I should have, but I did not. But that's a whole other story.

    I sat down on my bed and felt a 'prickly' sensation on my bare bottom. I was getting ready to go out, so was naked. I thought I'd sat on my hairbrush so didn't immediately get up, but then the prickle became a burning and I realized I had in fact sat on my very hot curling tongs! I had a 4inch brand on my butt!
    Well now I understand why it's out of your realm to get a hold of the whole subject of science (see other thread)
    Build a man a fire and he will be warm for a day, set a man on fire and he will be warm for the rest of his life.
