The fact that a person is dead at their funeral, and therefore “in no position to care” is also not…

It is. Read the sentence in question — “If four people are bawling at your funeral, you nailed it.”

What matter of relevance to you can you possibly nail when the nails are already in your coffin?

A point of making your life relevant ought to have been phrased differently. Words do matter.

If the point is ‘being remembered after death’, that is a maudlin and egotistic concept.

Unless there are people with agendas and funds interested in propagandizing us after our deaths, the majority of us are going to have the same fate as Ozymandias.

And now I’ll go make better use of the time that remains to me.


One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
