      A Life for a Life: The Immortality Question

So, what if you could live forever? The only catch is every time you have an accident or something that normally would have killed you happens, a random person dies. It could be a stranger or someone close to you. Would you choose immortality? 


Ol’Darrel’s sure fire way to shit out a candy cane:

  • One bottle of Peppermint Schnapps
  • 7 bags of Large Marshmallows (small marshmallows are for pussies)
  • 1/4 sheet of the best Red Velvet Cake $12 can buy

Now, take a shot of Schnapps, eat one bag of Marshmallows, then eat one huge slice of Red Velvet Cake. Wait three minutes then repeat the process until all the above ingredients are gone. Wait 7 hours for the candy cane to be processed. 

"John Steinbeck once said that ‘socialism never took root in America because the poor see themselves not as an exploited proletariat but as temporarily embarrassed millionaires.’ This helps explain why American culture is so hostile to the idea of limits, why voters during the last energy shortage rejected the sweater-wearing Jimmy Carter and elected Ronald Reagan, who scoffed at conservation and told them it was ‘still morning in America.’ Nowhere does the myth of progress have more fervent believers."
