The question heard round the world?

Question from a friend:

If you personally were ever in circumstances similar to those of Terri Schiavo, would want the "plug to be pulled"? The question is NOT about what should or should not have been done in her case. That is only a point of reference. The question is about YOUR preferences for YOU under similar circumstances. Would you want your feeding tube to be removed? YES or NO?

And his answer:
(In case you are wondering about MY preference, the answer is an unqualified YES. In fact, I don’t even want it to go that far. If I cannot hold a Shiner beer and drink it on my own, just shoot me.)

If my standard of living is ever based on Shiner, just shoot me.

Now, my homebrew, or Optimator... that's different. And of course skydiving goes without saying.
