    There are variables.
    We kill animals for food.
    Rank and guide lines is something not totally known.
    One guide line would be intelligence capable to tool and machine making.
    Another might be an intelligence that no longer preys on itself...as we humans do

    Reportedly some of our otherworldly visitors see us as little more than animals.

    It is a balance thing.
    Karma insures balance and meaning to life.
    Yes, one who has always done good could still get a shaft in life. Pass life actions do carry over if they have not been fully satisfied.

    I'm still reading and listening to programs about the afterlife. Mostly the accounts of people who have had Near Death Experiences, as these are the most common first-hand sources I find. There are alot of commonalities in these accounts, and I am pleased to see that all of them discover that they are very much loved and appreciated on the other side, even if they are confronted with their sins and mistakes.

    My desire to learn about the afterlife only gets sharper as more people and animals in my life cross over and I know I will not see them again in this life. Yesterday, my last great-aunt on my mom's side died. Also, one of my cats is terminally ill. I know that death is normal and no one is exempted from it. At the same time, damn, it scares the shit out of me. My own death not so much, especially if I live a reasonably long life. I do feel really bad for those who will mourn my death, but I have to say I am excited to find out what is on the other side. I just really wish I could not fear death so much for other people and animals. I'm sure billions of other folks have felt these same things and asked the same questions before, and will do so in the future.

    Last words - like Steve Jobs saying something like 'oh wow' while staring off.

    Stonewall Jackson supposedly said 'Let us cross over the river and rest under the shade of the trees'
    A lot of talk from a traumatic amputee dying of pneumonia loaded with morphine and whiskey.

    Anyone think they 'see it coming' or are most of these apocryphal ?

    OK. Let's try something different.

    If you could choose your last words what would they be?

    "DUCK !!" or 'exact change, really ?' or 'I didn't save the receipt ....'

    Just do like Homer Simpson and place a bet on every horse in the race:

    "Jesus, Allah, Buddha I love you all!!"

    A good headstone would read... “See you in heaven, if you make the list.” R.E.M. “Man in the Moon.”

    On the evening of May 9th, General John Sedgwick was inspecting his line and directing artillery placements at Spotsylvania. Confederate sharpshooters were firing shots at the Union army from around 1,000 meters [I think it was more like 800 yards but still impressive] away, causing them to duck for cover which prompted General Sedgwick to say “What? Men dodging this way for single bullets? What will you do when they open fire along the whole line?”

    Trying to shore up his men’s spirits, he assured them
    “They couldn’t hit an elephant at this distance.” Just moments after he uttered those words, a Confederate sharpshooter struck and killed him.

    I sure don't blame those soldiers! In the Civil War, if you didn't die quickly from a bullet wound you were probably going to die slowly from infection or receive an amputation- and then die from infection anyway.

    Walter Reed Hospital has a museum about battlefield surgery that's cool if you're ever in the DC area. Got Dan Sickle's legbone in there. Horrifying and fascinating at the same time. https://www.medicalmuseum.mil/index.cfm?p=exhibits.past.nationswounds.page_02

    Those big soft lead bullets do a lot of damage - which is what makes things like shotgun slugs good bear and cryptid medicine. The Geneva convention requires full metal jacketed bullets because they're clearly much more humane and civilized and cause different types of damage to the human body. ?!?

    Uncle John was probably hit by a hexagonal bullet from a Whitworth rifle. Interesting historical dead end. Much more so for the General .....
