I would have applied if I realize that my health would not knock me out of the game easily.
I'm just a serious loner and also, that, in my lives, face multiple time near death situation. From lightning strike to hydro planing on a motorbike (or a car hit me from behind) and landed so close near another vehicle (like those movies where the car inches away from your head thing - and today newspaper tells of a cyclist that is right underneath a car - not much injury lucky). and I no longer fear death - just pain.
And the thing is, depending on the pain, and your level of empathy, it at times look more painful than it is.
My brother was with my dad as he (my dad) dies, and we talked a lot about this.
Worst come to worst, it will be just like the ending of space cowboy. You just stare at earth until you dies. I don't think there will be rescue mission - there is already live cost if I understand.
