Dead man walking, or bionic dude?

Around h2g2 since March 24th, 2004, ...
This intro updated as of May 7th, 2018 ...

Today is the first day of the BEST of your life
Stay true to yourself and enjoy it
(a personal sentiment)

I am Canadian, (one of many here,) in my later 50's, and in the 31st year of my 2nd marriage. My baby from a first marriage has made me the very proud "Poppy" of 4 delightful grand-kids, and now there is a great-grand-child. I served our military for 21 years in uniform and 16 years more as an 'embedded' contractor. Before all of that, I was a farm lad, son of a general contractor and generally adept at many things.

In June of 2014, I was medically forced into work retirement when my heart went silly. After nearly 40 years of working and paying into "systems", it has been a helluva challenge to now depend on those systems.

I might appear to some as a bit rough around the edges, even brutally blunt at times. Please, don't let that put you off at all. Have a seat, choose a relaxing or refreshing beverage, and let's just visit for a while. Please mind the cats though, they always want the chair you choose ...

"Only the dead are without fear" is a line from an old western
movie (The Magnificent Seven). I have faced it many times,
I don't fear it. Death has long been cheated, and over-due.

I have more false fangs than real ones, my vision is acceptable because of corrective lenses
of bullet-proof glass, both ears are assisted 'bionically', and I have a teeny computer
and batteries in my chest - I have my own personal defibrillator built-in.
Just call me "The $60,000 Man" (Canadian funds, all taxes inclusive).

For any 'fundamentalist' atheists or religionists to ponder:
'Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence'
(Carl Sagan)

Atheism may be a result of personal rationalizations,
but blind hatred is simple stupidity.
