Horror as remote-control helicopter stunt pilot, 19, partially-decapitates himself with his aircraft after he lost control

Roman Pirozek Jr, 19, was an avid RC helicopter hobbyist
He specialized in performing dare-devil tricks with his powerful $1,500 model helicopter
His own father watched as the blades of the 6-pound RC flyer sliced off a piece of his head
He was dead when police arrived

Guess he mistimed that last trick about the helicopter falling toward his head , only to be started at the last moment to avoid it....

Sometimes they say "it's not your time" but I guess in this case it was his time?

Everyone who loved and cared about that boy, his parents, friends, etc. will experience separation now that his physical body is dead. And the closer they were to him the more emotion his death will evoke and the more emotional the more they will mourn and remember his death and how he died.

The only way you can escape experiencing separation is by becoming a monk and locking yourself away somewhere, or becoming a hermit and going and living somewhere that you don't have any human contact.


Life is so weird. To avoid experiencing separation you have to completely separate yourself from life.

A dream devoutly to be wished (credit Hamlet). I'm so comfortable alone by now--I wish other people would all go away--and that the business and necessities of life would carry on without my having to see and talk with anyone in person or on the phone. Only by letter or keyboard and only when absolutely essential.

Read this this morning in Paul Theroux's The Great Railway Bazaar--he was lamenting after a fellow traveler talked him into going somewhere together:

"I could have been having a nice drink--alone--relaxing. I need to be alone after seeing people--sort of put myself back together."

Exactly.

A long ago road trip with two girl friends completely cured me of going somewhere with someone. "Together" ends just a few miles up the road. Let's stop here, let's stop there - every Ross store within 20 miles of our stop and go journey was a must see, tons of antique shops, etc. When I drove, I refused to stop at a lot of places. Pout, pout, from one of the girls. I just wanted to get off that crazy ride as soon as possible, get rid of the fangs growing in my mouth. Nothing was better than when our destination ended and I was out of that car. Never, ever again. If anyone is planning a road trip, it isn't lots of laughs. It's an endurance trial where you almost want to see who lives and who doesn't. :-)

Is there such a thing as a Duality/Separation Emotion-O-Meter? What's the upper range? Lower range?

The most emotional thing someone can experience while we are here on this Earth is the loss of someone we love. Nothing else comes close. I cried for three days when my mom died.

I suppose the lowest separation experience might be urinating or defecating? Very little emotion attached to that experience?

Ask returning veterans suffering from PTSD what they think.

Other people are hell. The Baron sometimes questions the wisdom of his living in close quarters with nearly three million of them in only 225 square miles.

Yikes. Poor eyesight and deteriorating proofreading skills are hell, too.
