    I'd like to know if both the Brit and the Thai had licenses, tax, insurance, not drunk/no drugs etc. and if either are a fail on this front then they are at fault as they shouldn't have even been on the road in the first place. If both flunk it on this issue then toss them both in the slammer.

    I agree with you - except with the slammer - let them pay and if they cannot slammer but not more than a month.

    I gave up drinking and smoking.  I'd want to know and have the doctor buy me a carton of cigarettes and a bottle of whiskey. 

    hopefully in the state then you will be able to enjoy them


    Most people when they talk about dying think they will be in their healthy, happy and good mental state they are now, except having a fatal disease. Most of the time this is not the case.


    When I was younger I always thought that I knew what to do in case I am told I have cancer or going to die. The more patients I have seen in that state and the older I am  the less I am sure how I would react myself

    Absolute rubbish. It is the doctor's job to tell them what they need to know, not what they want to hear and then rely on them asking the right questions to get the right answer. 

    It is not one sided, you know. The patient has the right to know, but he also has the right not to know. Their decision.

    The doctor's duty is to respect the patient - and not force unwanted information on them. Not telling the truth does not mean lying - you just don't mention what they don't want to hear - always ready to give them all the information you have. And never forget - it is very difficult to tell how long - I have seen many survive much longer than expected and sometimes the opposite as well.
