So he wasn't dying then?


attanai t1_j9tsz4v wrote

He was dying when they found him. Poorly worded headline.


Ttffccvv t1_j9u7pjv wrote

So then everything that isn’t dead is dying?


VoraciousTrees t1_j9u900w wrote

... man, I need some time to think on this


shandangalang t1_j9uym9c wrote

Don’t bother. The answer is yes.

The axe man comes for us all; and the best we can do is ensure that in our final moments, we can look him in the eye and say “fuck man what a beautiful thing life was”.

“So live your life that the fear of death can never enter your heart. Trouble no one about their religion; respect others in their view, and demand that they respect yours. Love your life, perfect your life, beautify all things in your life. Seek to make your life long and its purpose in the service of your people. Prepare a noble death song for the day when you go over the great divide. Always give a word or a sign of salute when meeting or passing a friend, even a stranger, when in a lonely place. Show respect to all people and grovel to none. When you arise in the morning give thanks for the food and for the joy of living. If you see no reason for giving thanks, the fault lies only in yourself. Abuse no one and no thing, for abuse turns the wise ones to fools and robs the spirit of its vision. When it comes your time to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with the fear of death, so that when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way. Sing your death song and die like a hero going home.”

Idk man, I've never died before.. i'll just vaguely hope ill become immortal somehow or subconciously hope there's an afterlife and not think about it. I got bills to pay.



shandangalang t1_j9vd45j wrote

No shame in that, buddy. It’s what most of us do anyway


Hobbs512 t1_j9ve0xz wrote

Or I hope maybe one day I won't have any problems anymore, even though you always will have problems, and then I can make a difference in the world, and take comfort knowing I made the world that will continue after me a better place haha.

Everybody’s got problems, maaaaaaan. But financial security sure as shit alleviates some of the most important ones.

Breathe oxygen long enough and it's fatal.

After we're born, we're all dying afterwards... It just a matter of how long it takes.


AskingForSomeFriends t1_j9z1kok wrote

We have been dying from the moment the gametes that we are composed of were created.

Scenario A: Dad rubs one out or mom has a period, and your gametes were in those discharges, which shortly after die.

Scenario B: A boy gamete and girl gamete meet and you are conceived, yay! But wait a tik, bazzel: that means life is being created. But everything that is living is dying at the inversely proportional same rate. That means from conception, death is being created in your mothers womb, because of your fathers big boom.

By default, when anything is born, starts dying. Some things die sooner, some later. Unless you are a magic jelly fish that lives forever and regenerates its cells. Why magic? Cause we have yet to comprehend how it does that, and until we know, anything that's not explainable is magical by default. 🤣

Yes, in the Tibetan philosophy, Sylvia Plath sense of the word, we're all dying. But that turtle's not dying the way Chloe is dying.


OreganoJefferson t1_j9vmu6y wrote

What happened to Chloe?


BizzyM t1_j9w22us wrote

Did you really care?

(We're still doing Fight Club, right? Cause I'm quoting Fight Club.)


Yorkshire-Teabeard t1_j9vkyzn wrote

There is no such thing as a dying man, we're alive 'til the moment we are dead And a drowning man is just a living man who hasn't run out of his last bit of breath.


Treyen t1_j9vyyx9 wrote

Yes. Every living thing is on the clock. Every hour spent on reddit is one less hour from the total. Could be 50 years from now, could be 6 seconds from now when that unknown aneurysm pops, who knows, but it's coming.

We are all slowly dying

She was dying of hypothermia and dehydration, but they saved her, so now she’s not dying


MeccIt t1_j9yfsnf wrote

She was also <2% of her expected weight (1 pound instead of 45-90 pounds) at ~1 year old.


ionlydateninjas t1_jadpz00 wrote

She weighed 1 pound, when she was supposed to weigh over 75. A scientist is caring for her until she's healthy enough for Navy to move her to Canary Islands. She was dying, but now she's surviving.
