1. being in extreme physical pain
2. death being imminent, let's say a matter of months but not years, a lot can happen between now and several years
3. no possibility of cure, so death has to be inevitable

With that said I think I would oppose euthanasia altogether if someone discovered a wonder painkiller and permanently settled the #1 issue and if there was a way to constantly administer it so that you never experience even a minute of that pain again. No idea if that's possible, but waiting...



I draw the line at the end of my nose.

Or we could just ask Nesslig20. But I think the fact that he hasn't made a 50,000 word long post with 1,000 different graphics explaining to me exactly how I am wrong is probably more convincing than any other empirical evidence I could provide you with which shows I am right.

Well, maybe I'll write you one the moment you muster some form of evidence for the contention.
