I never caught this in 2011 but since this forum has been unused since April 2011 I thought it fitting to post it incase others missed it.

I guess he has( still living) alzheimers and is a discussion on assisted death and wether it should be legal.

Run time is about an hour and it's free to watch from this link, he goes to a place where they... do the procedure etc.

I plan to watch it tonight, I'll let you know how it is.

A hard drive containing unfinished works by Terry Pratchett has been crushed by a steamroller, as per instructions left by the fantasy novelist.


Boy...this hits me with all sorts of emotions from all sorts of angles. I'm glad they did it -- nobody wants to release unfinished, subpar work into the world, especially when it would be their last contribution ever, but I can't help but mourn the loss of a huge number of unseen pieces of such a legendary universe.

And the article is a reminder that he was only 66. Man, fuck Alzheimer's.
