and you chose not to stop them, and to die, is that suicide?
You shouldn't have to stop someone killing you.
knowing that youre going to be hit by a car
if you act in a way that is going to get you killed, and have the power to stop yourself getting killed, but continue, and end up getting killed
through your own, conscious choice?
and that christians are bad, yeah?
"jesus died for your sins"?
a good explanation here:
this thread is inspired by the date
'Jesus is my Aeroplane'
for your sins you filthy creature.
anyway, he chose to die
sacrifice or dirty, sinful suicide
it would be a massive sacrifice for the whole of womankind.
But yeah, I meant that women across the globe would never get to meet me. Cause I died to save them from myself. That's a big sacrifice they're making by paying me no attention for 19 years.
sacrifice for their benefit
this is just the plot to that 'stranger than fiction' is it not?
But good film :)
Not that semantics aren't nice to pin down.
I think the distinguishing factor here is deliberate mental intent, not whether the act is physical an active or a passive one.
That said if you only find out someone's trying to kill you at very short notice, and you let it happen, it might be argued that you hadn't had time to develop a considered delibarate intent to die.
