i'd rather pass on than keep living like that, not by suicide, but by natural means (remove the tubes and stuff).

Well, to properly answer this question one would have to put himself in the position of the deaf/blind/mute/faceless quadriplegic's position... if that is the case then we can't ignore the fact that being a deaf/blind/mute/faceless quadriplegic would leave you with no means of communicating that you'd rather be dead... so it's up to the people around you to make that decision for you! Fun. I would just start seizing and shaking in the hospital bed until the people around me are left with little choice but to put me out of my misery...

... but to answer the question plainly-- yes... Of course I'd rather be dead... show me the person who'd like to live in that state and I'll show you the virtual reality chip attached to his brain that allows him to live as many virtual lives as he'd like in an instant. Or I'd shoot him.

I'd want to die, personally. What's the point in being alive if you can't live life. Not having legs, arms, or a face would be so incapacitating! I personally would rather be dead and live like that. The problem is, without lips, teeth, and a tongue, you can't talk, so how would you tell the people keeping you alive to let you die?

The scary thing is, even though you may be physically ruined, your mind is still the same and very alive.

my question is..
if that was you would you even want to be kept alive or would you just say let me die..

personally for me i would just say kill me now theres no reason for me to live ... and i deff. dont want to be alive just so i can be with myself and my thoughts the rest of my life..


babystarlit: Would you want to live if some Bigot in acts a wish and makes Black Americans enslaved again, and you knew that you were free but now you cant escape being a Slave would you live as a Slave or Die.

i dont think its the same situation but if that did happen then i would still want to live i mean sure id probably be killed anyway for being a too smart independent smart aleck slave who doesnt do what she's told trys to run away and fights back when the guy with the whip trys to get me ... but id still want to live but if i was like the guy in the book .. if i really had no reason to live if my only purpose in life was to lay on a bed id tell them to kill me now that is if i could talk.. but id want them to take me off life support

Biologically, you'd want to live through instincts. But since we're social creatures with emotions, we require some things in life. We need to be happy and to fulfill our emotional desires.

With that said...
what's the point of living if you can't live?

And I don't want my loved ones to care for me and pay for me.

Just put me in a shopping cart strapped with dynamites and roll me down a hill. And a stereo for music so I have dying music. If god exists, he'd be like "wtf. This guy needs to hang with me."

but he can still smell right? that's an important sense, one worth living for even... except not really. if it were me i'd hyperventilate until the pH of my blood dropped low enough to kill me. either that or i'd become a master wine smeller, like a bitch.

It kind of.. makes me want to read the book. How can you write a book about someone who can't do anything at all? Must be pretty boring.

Anyway, if you can't see, hear, eat, write etc., then there probably is no fun anymore in life. I think everyone, or at least the majority of people, would say that they'd want to die if they would have to live like that. And I agree with them.
