Unfortunately they do die. Count me sentimentalist, but I didn't find the topic funny, as it reminded me of the late Nick Ing-Simmons.

Well, perhaps it's not funny, and count me as a sentimentalist too, but also as a person with a severe kind of cancer I feel like reminding you that sometimes it's good to laugh even at the most serious and sad things. I often make jokes about my own disease and, believe me, it helps. (A magic want to just switch it off would help more of course!)

    I am also very sorry to hear about that. I do agree with you. I know a hand full of people who laugh at problems and live long happily. I heard them never complain about their problem, but they laugh at it. May the almighty be with you to defeat the cancer bravely.

    That's a cruel irony - a carpe diem joke from a person with cancer is missed on another without. I'm not changing my opinions, but I do wish you, personally, all the luck and bravery you may need.

      First of all, thank you. I had already /msg'd my thanks to demerphq and now I collectively thank all of you: demerphq, vc_will_do and dk and the others who /msg'd me in the first place. But really, for those who would also feel like dropping a line or two to me on this subject, I would prefer them to choose the /msg way too, not to make too much what is intended as a funny poll into a melodramatic series of fellowship messages.
