Re: BFS Proponent Rescued at Sea
Well, I'm the age of majority, and I should know better, but I still don't.
I know alchohol will kill me, but I still drink it.
I know I will break a leg skiing, but I still challenge the black diamonds.
I know sailing will kill me, but I still want to circumnavigate.
And if none of THAT works, I still have the old standbyes, of high cholestral, high blood pressure, or plain old heart attack.
Fact is; none of us are going to make it out of this alive. You can't live forever, and you can't take it with you.
If I have to live my "mature years", wrapped up in a blanket, sitting on a rocker on my front porch, grazing on cardboard flavored "health food", I'd rather die.
If my ship smashes into an uncharted rock while rounding Cape Horn during a force 10, (in a cheap production Hunter), you can put on my tombstone, "he died living his dream".
At least I'll have died living, instead of lived dying.
