Though I already have the ill fortune of it starting to happen...rather early.
Total paralysis sucks. Fortunately for me it was only temporary.

Keep in mind though that if it happens, unless you live in one of the few areas that offers assisted suicide, that option is off the table. In retrospect, that's what scared me fifteen years ago when I experienced it.

Discussions like this are one of the reasons I've never looked into my family medical history. I have never been good with having shadows hanging over me, and have a lot of respect for those who can make the best of such situations.

If I start to decline like that, I'll opt for a peaceful way out that won't result in suffering for myself or my loved ones.
If I ever run into such extreme decline, I'm gonna use the last of my wits to demand a pudding cup laced with anything that will kill me (but won't ruin the pudding).

Yeah but generaly if something is wrong with your family medical history, you don't need to search to know what. :P
At least, the wost I can have is apparantly die of a cerebral edema or other problems related to blood tension. ( my maternal great-grandparents are dead relatively young because this kind of problem, and my maternal grand-aunt is dead around 50 because by an cerebral edema after a week of coma; and the general hypertension among males of my paternal side would certainly don't help me for this kind of problem :mrgreen: )

True. Takes a bit more effort when you were adopted as an infant, though.

Sure it's scary to know this kind of risk, but sometimes it can be used to prevent some things. (if these risks are real, it's not like don't knowing them will makes them less real)

*nods* Based on my own knowledge of myself, I've made a calculation that the damage to my health from the stress of knowing something of that nature is likely to be greater than the chance of prevention or mitigation. That calculation may change as I get older, but for now I'm comfortable with it :) .

Well this got awfully morbid fast. And not in the "ha ha black comedy" way, either. :?

I'm a little surprised this doesn't happen a lot more often around here, actually.

Hum... is the "book club" quoted in the game the same as the "literature club" quoted on the wiki ?

I wanted to knew what these people are doing in this club, is it about exchange recommandations and opinions on their readings, or something else ?

So far I've traced the cause of death back for eight generations. Throat cancer. Lung cancer. Stomach cancer. Lung cancer. Cancer. Cancer. Cancer. Cancer... Apparently all my ancestors on one side lived so long that they got cancer and died. That's one way to think of it. My disabilities, however, come from the other side, all on one chromosome that has been religiously passed down to some poor unfortunate descendant(s) in every generation. Those calculations mean something; they make me want to do stuff and get it out of the way, before stuff does me and gets me out of the way. :)

Don't know, but wish I knew! Why not ask it over at the 'Ask' thread and see if some dev will give you a straight or semi-straight answer?

I imagine that they are indeed the one and the same. "Literature club" is probably the more official of the two names.

Taking a leaf from other book clubs, they probably focus on a selected reading and discuss it whenever they meet. Like Oprah.

I'm either going to get my lifespan from my mom's side, in which I'll likely die of my heart exploding at 58 years old (specifically 58 for some reason), or I'll get it from my dad's side, and be falling apart with diabetes and cancer (and possibly other maladies), but make it into my 90s or even further.

Well, either way, I'll probably end up with the 'beetus...

Thanks for the answers, i'll maybe ask this tomorrow

I'm a bit confused with the term "literature" because I thinks it means a different thing in english (I'm french) so I don't know if the students (especially Suzu, because I plan to write something about her) in the literature club discuss about books or write some ones

Also, I don't remeber when one of the girls said to Hisao that the book club don't take new members because they are too many (don't go watch all the scenes just to answer me, it's not a big problem that I don't know that)
