The problem being that its the last few years of delayed death that
impose the most mental destruction on the brain. I'd rather get pickled
while my noggin is still at at least 90%+ of capacity. Delaying things
with geriatric care is like continuing to drive a car down the highway
with a blown rod and transaxle and expecting to get to the garage in
repairable condition. Once the damage starts, prepetuating things only
increases the damage, it's time to pull over and call for AAA.
