    Assisted suicide.

    As a farmer I had to "put down" a lot of animals over the years for a variety of reasons. Mainly because the animal was suffering and would die an agonizing death if I didn't.

    For some reason though I find the idea of the "mercy killing" of a human being repulsive.

    On the other hand if one's death is inevitable, and no amount of pain killers are going to alleviate the pain,..

    Personally, I think I'd hang on to the bitter end.

    I tried 2 other failed new threads with an intro twice but was rejected because of innapropriate content. Which was a mystery to me because I hadn't sworn in it or anything but was still rejected. Then I started this one which also didn't come up immmediatelty (5 min). Then, lo and behold they both just came up at the same time.

    Yootha Nasia is actually a "guy" who changed his name from Craig.
    He stands at 6'5" but wieghs like 40 kilos. Not anorexic. But just abnormally skinny.
    But his physical dimensions pale in comparison to his eccentric personality.
    When you see him he looks like an alien crossed with a human.
    He is a bisexual love master and has developped his own system of numerology.
    Crazy guy right? Thing is he was always the most enigmatic person in any group he found himself in.

    So you're not really talking about euthanasia? You're talking about a movie about a freak?

    The guy came into his government job naked and preceeded to hug everyone. He didn't get very far and was quickly escorted. He changed his name to Yootha Nasia and went on the pension. He got married to a friend. He went "travelling" and got over 150 face piercings. He featured in many bikey and tattoo mags but was never paid a cent. His physical features were absolutely mind boggling if you saw him. 6'6" although he shopped at the kids section in thrift shops. Couldn't weighed more than 43kgs. Not anorexic.
    Not "in your face"
    Geunily "alluring"
    Friendly...

    and a "sex god".

    Sounds like a description of a freak. One that you're apparently enamored of.

    Yes. After not seeing this guy for 20 years I am still enamoured by him.
    He looks very freakish indeed, however he is one of the most loving people I've ever met.
    That includes a Tibetan monk who had attained the title of "geshe-a" (teacher of divinity).
    Poor old Yootha had been physically abused many times just for being himself.
    He was constantly taunted by cars driving by, yet he always kept his sense of humour.
    He didn't have an evil bone in his body , and was always the central piece of any party/gathering he found himself in

    Eligibility
    a resident of California, Colorado, Oregon, Vermont, or Washington; and.
    18 years of age or older; and.
    mentally competent, i.e. capable of making and communicating your health care decisions; and.
    diagnosed with a terminal illness that will, within reasonable medical judgment, lead to death within six months.

    So a few states so far.
