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

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.

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

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.
