Peacefully in bed, at a grand old age

At the moment of orgasm ;)

If you could choose how you'd leave this mortal realm, how would it be?

I'd like to die peacefully in my sleep like my grandfather, not screaming in terror like his passengers.

I intend to live forever but I'd accept a few thousand years.

Me, I want to go like the Great OX that was John Entwhistle (ie a heart attack in a hotel room after a drug fuelled orgy with a number of ladies of negotiable (negotiated??) virtue; almost the PREFECT Rock`n`Roll death*)

WMS

*The perfect R`n`R death is of course NOT choking on your own vomit after a night on the town, but choking on SOMEONE ELSES vomit!!

Not too worried, except that I'd rather not see it coming, and I don't want to spend a long time in pain or with a debilitating illness first.

Oh, and I'd like to live long enough to squander all this money I'm stuffing into my pension fund Smile

As my old man died earlier this year I hope to get past my 86th birthday too, and it'll be inevitable I miss out on the party after the bonfire Laughing

Unlike the Daily Mirror pensioners, who lived long enough for Robert Maxwell to squander all the money they stuffed into their pension fund.

Maxwell couldn't even hang onto the handrail of his boat, and an inflated anything would have helped him!

His inflated fat gut, and inflated ego didn't do him much good though.

So, no one for a 'Bonny & Clyde' // 'Butch Cassidy & Sundance' type ending then?

No, but I'm quite willing to brush up my bicycle skills if Katharine Ross needs a lift anywhere... Wink

I don't have any guns to blaze away with, except my old gat gun and that wouldn't knock a copper's button off.

What will I have done to deserve such treatment?

Nope, quiet death in my sleep (preferably not for a couple of nights at least) will do me fine.
