    I used to have a gun, but lost them in an unfortunate boating accident.

    They're rather useless if they're unloaded and locked away, aren't they? :rolleyes:

    The second I realize the call is a survey, of any kind, I hang up. Even if it wasn't a complete waste of time, I feel no need to discuss private matters with a stranger.

    Roger that!
    And isn't it ironic that laws have been passed allowing a senior to end their life with a doctor's assistance? Seems to fly in the face of the above written article. :eek:

    There are those of us that don’t believe anyone was actually surveyed. Numbers aren’t that hard to make up.....
