6mths to go

Discussion in 'The NAAFI Bar' started by down_under, Oct 7, 2008.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. A COY Comd here has, regrettably, been told he has 6 mths to live due to pancreatic cancer. He's the type of bloke that puts a public brave face on his situation and seems to have accepted his fate. He has already organised a massive p iss up prior to his due date.
    So how would you spend your last days before stepping off the LD?

    Have not done a search, so if already done my apologies.
  2. I'd go to a casino, after selling all I possess, and bet on black. I'd have a great last 6 months, or a skint one :)
  3. It really saddens me when i hear a story like this, i know the enevitable happens to all of us in many different ways but it pisses me of when you get chavs running round smoking 50 a day, drinking into oblivion and taking god only knows what kind mixtures of drugs and getting away with it. then you get good honest hard working soldiers that get told they have six months. :( I hope he does what he can in his time left and enjoys it thoroughly. I personaly would load my yaht up with as many supplies as i could and simply sail into the sunset. Im happiest when i feel free.
  4. Have lots and lots of surprise sex, and not bother to bury the bodies.

    Same thing happening to mate of mine. It's very sad to see him looking like a concentration camp victim.

    Think I'd go out and do all those bad things you'd get locked up for whilst trying not to get caught. No doubt I'd get better and thne be locked up....
  6. I guess I would quit worrying about the humdrum that tends to trap us and stops us looking at the really important stuff. Spend 6 months making sure everyone who mattered to me knew how much I cared about them and do the stuff I always wanted to do but put off because of normal/work life.

    Oh yeah, a shitload of parties!
  7. Feck knows what a pancreas is or does, we didn't bombard with those questions yet. He rang us with the news and the ins and outs for his piss up. It is saddening, and it certainly does bring home the mortality of ones self and what we do to our bodies. I hope I have the gumption he does if I was ever told this kind of news.

    I'd go superhero vigilante, get myself a big kevlar suit and and obscenely huge motor loaded with weapons of major death and destruction, and wade in. Got to be better than wasting away.

    Obviously this would all be after the parties and shagging. If I could handle the situation as well as this guy, I'd feel duty-bound to create as many b*stard children as possible to carry on what must be a pretty solid set of genetics - and then I'd give them some stories to tell.

    My first TA OC had something similar, they let him die in the job as it were, he'd enough time in and it was a fair way to go but I was surprised as the amount he had drank his liver etc should have been preserved!
  11. When I was growing up, the lady that lived in a house across the street, was told she only had six months left. She then got all her stuff sorted, and then took out a MASSIVE loan, along with loads of Credit Cards, and spent her final six months, spending all the money she could!

    Same here. I would set up a roof top sniping position in Croydon town centre and bring down a rain of pain on all the chav scum that populate the area. I think we are long overdue a cull, natural selection appears to not be working too well at present.

    The double-edged sword that is modern medicine, and the curse of our current government. Ho hum.
