    You are right, of course. What I would like to say - without ever being in that situation myself - is that life can be ended (and will), whereas death can't. I don't like saying things like this, as I feel privileged healthwise.

    you don't. The Gravedigger is digging your grave. The pall-bearers carry the coffin and put it into the grave. The assembly is throwing flowers and dirt after your coffin. The gravedigger fills the grave, never opening the casket and making proper introductions I fear.

    The distribution of your wealth to your family and friends.

    Assuming you had a job at the time, the job market is now slightly less competitive. Someone might get a promotion now, maybe a few as the effects of your absence trickle down. A new job position is opened up.

    A marginal effect on the cost of food. The supply is the same, but now there is slightly less demand. Traffic is now slightly less congested and the housing market is less competitive.

    An overall reduction in humanities contribution to global warming.

    Not true, ever heard of the "death tax"?

    You are in for a rude awakening.

    Student loans are unforgiveable, BTW.
