"Serenity takes place approximately six months after the last Firefly episode, 'Objects In Space.'

The events between the final episode of Firefly and the beginning of Serenity, including Inara and Shepherd Book leaving the ship, are chronicled in a three-part comic book series written by Joss Whedon, called 'Those Left Behind.' "

Well, fuck. Either way, more Firefly stuff for me to consume.

I still want more Firefly. I'm willing to pull at straws for anything at this point.

Well, I heard there are 30 minutes of deleted scenes. But I am afraid they will not be integrated into the movie in the Bluray version (for now).

You did come off as a cunt at first but I understand where you're coming from. It's a different value of life. You have an absolute value for the life, the continued beating of the heart with the person's consciousness. I have compassion for other people just as much as you do, but not in the beating of their heart. In their personality, desires, wishes, etc. How they feel. Rather than just making them live for the rest of society's sake.

I get that it can be hard watching your friends die at their own hands. I had one just this past year go. Drove her car right into a tree, died almost instantly. She hadn't even graduated highschool yet. Quite sad, but that was her decision to make, and though I mourn the loss of her, I respect her decision to do so.

It's not that either of us is wrong, despite how much I want to say you're wrong. It's just a difference in priorities and values that can't really be changed for either of us through simple discussion.

But nobody owns that life but them. There are people who legitimately want to die. For instance if I lost my entire family, I would probably off myself. Privately enough, of course. Nothing as dumb as sitting on a ledge in public like this chick did, but I would still do it. You can't just assume that because it's not within your scope of reality that other people don't feel that way. During the Great Depression, people killed their babies so the baby wouldn't have to starve to death. There are some existences in this world not worth having. Was hers a situation like that? Probably not. But it's still her decision. Why should the Government be able to say "we don't agree with your thinking so you must be in an irrational state of mind, therefore we can force your hand".

TL;DR personal freedom trumps our feelings of paternalism. Want to try to talk them out of it? Go for it. But don't force their hand. It's wrong and 9 times out of 10 will make their life worse through shame, expensive therapy costs they're forced to undertake, etc.

Saving someone's life doesn't make it worse. Like I said, I understand what you're trying to say, I just don't agree. I'm clearly a bit more passionate about others, probably coming from seeing three of my friends dead at their own hands.

Sorry if I came off as a cunt :/

Whys he should have killed herself? I don't know. I don't know her situation. But killing yourself is a personal choice and who the fuck are you to say you know better than them what is best for them? Who the fuck do you think you are that you can take a consenting adult's decision away just because you think "oh they must not be in the right state of mind" adults make decisions that they regret all the time. You can't take away a choice just because you think they might regret it. Freedom doesn't work that way. She's an adult and can make her own decisions. If she decides halfway down that she doesn't want to die, that's her own damn problem.

You're the one who doesn't care about people. People have freedom of choice and free will and that's what makes us people and not just machines. I'm saying that if she wants to kill herself, she should be able to and nobody should be able to take that decision away from her. I'm saying she could be stopped from doing it in a way that will harm other people or damage property because harming other people and damaging property is understandably illegal, while killing yourself is not understandably illegal.

Get the point? You can't be everyone in the world's dad and make them act the way you fucking want them to. Jesus what the fuck kind of lack of tolerance is that? Let people make their own decisions. Because the second we start taking away decisions, we start taking away other decisions.
"Oh, you shouldn't eat that burger, it's bad for you. So... you know what? You can't eat that burger."
"Oh, you shouldn't drink. It's bad for you. You can't drink. There ya go. I just saved you, be grateful."

See the problem with that?

If somebody is put into a state of mind that they feel like they want to die, they are never thinking straight. They've fallen into despair, and they've been made to think that there's no way out. No right-minded, rational thinking human being would ever end their life willingly. As shit as we can be, humans mostly have a natural urge to not die, and if that urge is taken from them, it's because something else has happened.
I've had friends contemplate, I've had friends attempt and I've had friends succeed. Every one of them who got to the point of attempting had never tried to talk to anyone about it. If they survived, they regretted it. Nobody wants to die, but for some it feels like the only way out.
Denying someone a burger because it's fucking greasy is not the same as preventing someone from ending their own life. Don't even try to pull that bullshit. It's not about being everyone in the world's dad, it's about being a passionate person who really doesn't want to see someone die.

I get where you're coming from. You're in the standpoint of "it's their life, it's their choice," which is fair enough, but I feel that a human life is the single most important thing on this planet, and we should all be trying to make sure everyone gets to keep theirs for as long as possible. So, if I see an opportunity to prevent someone from dying, I will take it. A lot of the time, people who stand up on the edge of a bridge, or press a blade to their wrist can be talked out of it by a normal, human conversation.
