RIP question

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

RIP question

Post by phuketrichard »

is there anyway i can OPT out of having my death reported here when i pass?

See no reason for people that dont know me, posting random comments on my death or how i died
for those that know me to see, if they do a duck duck go search
In a nation run by swine, all pigs are upward-mobile and the rest of us are fucked until we can put our acts together: not necessarily to win, but mainly to keep from losing completely. HST

Same, please don't post any reports of my trip over the rainbow bridge on here when it happens, thanks.
No matter how much it rains, the dirt never washes away.

@PR If you don't get pushed off a balcony by a ladyboy while high on meth, slash your wrists in a public place while naked, or create some sort of drama, will the Thai press even report your death ? Serious question.
The Thai press seem (a little) more responsible and discreet than the Khmers. Say you die in bed at home of a heart attack or illness, unlike in Cambodia, the Thai press won't come and take photos of your remains and post them all over the local news, will they ? That is the impression I get anyway.
In that case, (if your death is not "newsworthy") then it will be up to your nearest and dearests to announce your departure to chosen friends and/or to make a public announcement of decease (without photos). Just tell your girlfriend what you want to happen when you die.
I'm sure that CEO would be fine with "RIP PR, longtime member of CEO, died whenever."

(Mind you, GM may already have your obituary ready to go. I couldn't say. :stir: )
Wishing you the best of health and a peaceful demise. AM.

You'll be dead. You won't care.

she already knows, a viking funeral, setting my body in a wooden longtail and casting it off into the sea on fire :-)

Namaste'

How idiotic a question.

OK, anyone who doesn't want the local news report of their death to be reported by CEOCambodiaNews just list your full name, date of birth, place of birth and ethnicity here and we'll create a database.

Anytime a death of a foreigner is reported in the local press, we'll cross reference the name with those listed in the database and then make sure the news is not posted.

Like most of us here even know who the fuck any of you are in real life.

Some of you have an inflated sense of your own importance.

You better also touch bases with Khmer440 PhuketRichard, they'd have a field day with you, I'm sure.

And I am not frightened of dying
Any time will do, I don't mind
Why should I be frightened of dying?
There's no reason for it, you've gotta go sometime


Who let all of this riff-raff into the room?

You can relocate to a civilized country were the police doesn't leak your death pics to a press clown who is sharing it with the whole web.
But like another poster said - you will be dead, you won't care
