In accordance with his plan, Goodall died Thursday [10 may 2018]

[T]he 104-year-old man burst spontaneously into song, singing in German:
Freude, schöner Götterfunken
Tochter aus Elysium,
Wir betreten feuertrunken,
Himmlische, dein Heiligtum!

I've known enough people in their nineties to believe that being in your hundreds could be a harsh state of being even without any particular medical condition.

I hope he finds a peaceful method and a beautiful place to finish

"Gonzo-style" included blowing his head off with his son and grandson in the next room.

The final act of thoughtless fucking prick.

There's a well-known effect of aging where time seems to move ever faster. It seems like that would be disorienting and annoying as hell at 100+ years.
