    wow

    he did say she was taken off life support.. that usually means that the person has passed..

    • EricDraven86

      No that means that they are no longer trying to keep the person alive. Generally death follows being taken off life support, but a person does not instantly pass when taken off the machines.

        why I said usually.

  • SweetCyn

    Fight Mae! Take that Scythe out of the Grim Reapers hand and shove it up its ass.

    Come on Mooneyham. How about a little confirmation before you post a story like that. Not very professional reporting at all. Almost as bad as CNN declaring that John Kerry had won the presidency a few years back. Way to drop the ball.

    Richard, when is Cena turning heel?

    • JR Texx (Jamie)

      At the same time he stops getting the “Let’s Go Cena, Cena sucks” chants. Chances are of him turning heel, are VERY slim to non, positive or negative, he gets a reaction, and the stuff he does for the business, outside the business, is amazing. So probably never.

    What’s the obsession with keeping old people alive? When I get old I don’t want to be kept alive through constant medical intervention whilst increasingly losing my faculties. People have this fear of death – it’s only going to sleep and not waking up again – and how many people are afraid of going to sleep? Childish superstitions like religion don’t help – threats that your maker will torture you in fire for eternity after you die if you’ve displeased him in life really aren’t helpful because some people fall for it.

      How do you KNOW it’s just a superstition? Bottom line, don’t knock what you don’t KNOW.

      Funny how many people have said that in their youth before you, yet when they’re on death’s doorstep, suddenly have a change of heart and want to be alive for as long as possible. It ain’t just a cheesy movie line, bud. As human beings, it’s in our genetic makeup to fight for as long as we can to live. Beyond that, you can choose to believe whatever you want. Just don’t go knocking others for their beliefs.
