    But Never Afraid

    I always end up thinking about the scene from Final Destination. I never really take it seriously, unless the plane is moving around too much, but usually I laugh the nerves off.. We're all gonna die sometime. Why be afraid of it?

    If a person won't be able to function in society after their sentence, and we help pay to fulfill their sentence, I'm really surprised the death penalty isn't more common.
