    Default Burn out or fade away

    So come on, I imagine everyone has thought about this.

    Burn out - Enter heaven backwards in a ball of flame, hanging out of the window of your car saying "where's the women".

    Fade away - Live to see the fruits of your labour. Live to see what happens next with the world, your children, the next door neighbours love affair ..whatever.
    Isn't it time for a colourful metaphor?

    How about burning out at age 90?

    Burn until the flame dies, then fade away.

    Where's the option where I think I'll lose all conscious awareness of anything, and cease to exist altogether?

    Is this about me burning out or fading away... or whether I'd prefer Xander to burn out or fade away?
    "Hey Capa -- We're only stardust." ~ "Sunshine"

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    That's my thought.

    than to serve and obey them. - David Hume

    Nah, he burned out a long time ago. His body just didn't get the message until last year.
