"And a treadmill in every Rec Room!" - finished it for you.

If you are passionate about everything you do, I would think it would be pretty hard not to die doing something you are passionate about.

Web- YES! Yes. Although I do think I prefer elliptical machines.

I think you have a point. I remember when my mother in law died during Mass. Everyone was like, "She died during church?!" and I would always reply, "The probability if dying in church is greatly increased should you go EVERY day." I think the twist was she died on the altar leading the rosary. That probability was low... not something she did every day.

So, yeah, if I'm passionate about most everything, perhaps that probability is just a little higher I'll be doing something I like...

This time change is KILLING ME. Holy crap. I feel like I should be hibernating...

Good Lord, it's like you're in my head! The whole dying while doing something you love... I was thinking the same thing, the only change being I'd probably die in front of my computer and that's worse than dying while eating a doughnut... at least doughnuts are tasty.

I loathe this time change thing. I have not seen a single person who admits to liking it... so how is it we still have it in place??? I want to find every single elected official's stance on changing times twice a year. If they are for it - throw the bum out! I want them to pick a time and stick with it - I don't care which one just pick one for crap sake! I want THAT to be the question they ask all these idiots during debates.

As soon as you start that country just let me know - I'm moving there.

I'm not a big fan of my paying job. It keeps food on the table, that's it, But if/when I go, I hope it's at the zoo, where I volunteer as a docent and see lots of neat animals and meet lots of nice animal-loving folks. I spend my days off there. I don't get paid in money, just peace of mind. Everyone should be so lucky to have such a "hobby."
As for the time change thing? The no problem, the biggest hassle is having to look up how to change the clock in my car.

But Bou, you are very passionate about a lot of things.

First and formost is your kids.

And Next is Math.

So you should die while doing the quadratic formula. Then they can say she died while doing what she loves.
