I'd certainly take such a treatment, for the simple reason that reversing the decision at a later time is very easy indeed. Althought not completely painless, jumping (or otherwise placing yourself) in front of a heavy, fast moving object is a tried and tested method :-)

      This is a side effect of life even without anti-ageing treatment. Even so, I'm sure I'd manage to be annoying enough to have someone help me solve that problem. Next time you see a senior citizen act in a manner that makes you consider throwing him or her in front of a train, maybe that's exacly what he or she is trying to accomplish? :-)

                      but I'm not going to treat that as advice I should follow: the State's Attorney/Prosecutor/DA/County Sheriff/Chief of Homicide just might not buy that as an exculpatory explanation.
