Pull the plug simultaneously on 8 patients unable to survive w/o life-support. The last one breathing wins... hmmm... a swell casket? a free cryogenic capsule? Maybe just some $ for their family.

       There's a joke in this idea, I think ... but it still seems creepy to me. A couple of weeks ago, some 200 people crowded into a room to watch the video feed of their most reviled criminal being put to death by lethal injection. (This broadcast, we were meant to understand, would provide them with "closure".)   

       A thing like Senior Survivor can't be that far off -- at least not here in the good old US of A.

       Like Mephista said, I would like to see old geezers toughing it out and everything other then youngens (like me) I think it would much more interesting and no offence but very funny.
