Fair call.

I'm betting that the "instant coffee" was really a kilo of Kopi Luwak, digested by the finest Luwaks in Indonesia, hand fed Sato Nishiki cherries by the purist Japanese virgins, then picked by Monks imported to Indonesia and hand delivered to GE by Gandhi and Fidel Castro

3 short blacks between 4 to 5 am then a nice macchiato take away on my way in to the prison, when I arrive at work I smash a 3 tablespoon maccona number 5 on the hour every hour till 9.00, that's the weekday , weekends are similar 3 short blacks at home between 7 to 8 then I'll brew myself with my pezzetti stove top flat whites for the next couple of hours.

A theory of my Uncles is that water makes you rusty and causes arthritis...

Bloke lived on coffee and beer most of his life.

His Liver is shot to pieces, but he doesn't have arthritis...

Yes or no?

Post by Fuifui Bradbrad »

I was thinking about it the other day. I still don't know.

I was leaning towards yes, because if I was in a situation where I relied on Mrs Fui to look after me 24/7, I wouldn't want to put her through that.

But if something happened to her, it would kill me to see it done to her and I would want to look after her.

I don't know.. I think I'm more on the no side, like 60/40. It's too grey for me.

For me it's more around the chronic pain/quality of life. If life isn't worth living for the person with no reasonable hope of cure I think that's where euthanasia comes in.

Yeah I get that, and I agree with that, but I also feel it could be easily manipulated.

There was a couple on The Project who wanted to be euthanised when they were 80, because they didn't want to go into a home and have to wear incontinence pads. There were other reasons, but not health related, just that they didn't want to rely on others basically. That's not a valid reason, but then you would have to draw a very uncomfortable line in the sand

Yeah, it's a bloody tricky line to draw but I think it's worth it.

I imagine some system where say 3 randomly assigned doctors from a pool must review the case and sign-off. Then there'd be some machine learning analysis of the pool to look for anomalous doctors for review. Issue there is cost obviously.

IMO this is an issue of personal autonomy. Sensible, strict regulations that balance personal autonomy and the basic human right to die have me firmly rusted to 'YES'

I also want dementia to be included as a terminal illness in any legislation. It's a cruel way to die and dementia suffers should be able to go out on their own terms.

Under strict conditions, definitely yes.

Watching the old man go out the way he did, no one should have to suffer like that. And watching my Mum try to keep it together during the process, no question about it, it should be allowed.

Like i said, there have to be strict criteria, and independent assessments, but 100% yes.

1000% agree with Pigman. Not sure, but I think that means I agree 1,000,000% with GE. :?

The biggest debate would be around exactly what these strict protections are.

Maybe a bridge too far.

I think if the sufferer themselves are able to make a call (or who ever has power of attorney), they should be able to make a submission for euthanasia to the treating doctor, if that doctor agrees, it goes to the head of the department for review, if they agree, it goes to panel of independent doctors who review the case, once it clears them, you should be able to legally euthanise a patient. And the kpi from official submission to final decision by the independent board should 5 days

Don't know how feasible that is, or if im missing any glaring issue medically but I think a system like that should be in place

Not without some kind of protections. Maybe a 12 month 'cooling off period' with twice monthly compulsory counselling sessions.
