    Energetic performance by Berkoff. He wants to be careful.

    I'm just relieved he didn't mention heart palpitations.

    Saw VII: 2 people in a room have to decide whether to suffer a heart attack or have Stephen Berkoff come in and warn them about a heart attack! Terrifying!!

    Relax!



    We're all going to die one day - and this advert doesn't mean that its going end this way.



    Just get on with your life - and when the end happens - it happens. The End.

    I much prefer "...To Be Continued..." rather than "The End"

    It's an effective piece of propaganda and Berkoff (always a Bat favourite) is on top form, but I agree with Sir Olly .... live your life and enjoy it as best you can.

    Agree with all the above.



    It's as if the government want us to live with the fear of damn well everything.



    Is it the bible which says we have nothing to fear but fear itself.

    I don't see it like that at all. To me it seems quite feasible - and indeed, responsible - to alert people to recognise symptoms of a heart attack so that they can be saved in time. Why die if you don't have to? This particular advert. is sledgehammer tactics, but sometimes that's what it takes to get folk to sit up and take notice.



    Do you know what the biggest killer is?....



    Apathy.




    Sure, we're all going to die one day - but later rather than sooner, thanks! I've known so many people who love to use that awful old cliche "when your time comes, it comes" and honestly, it upsets me, because it is such a woeful cop-out. Fatalistic is so apathetic, and what I believe is that if you die of anything other than old age i.e. your systems packing it in, then you have died before your time. Sadly, most people do die prematurely - obviously sometimes for reasons beyond their control, but all too often for reasons within their control - and in those cases it's either through unawareness or apathy, but mostly apathy. And that is really sad and tragic.



    Taking heed of health warnings doesn't mean you're being fearful and not getting on with your life. It simply means you're being sensible instead of apathetic.



    Sensible never killed anyone - not that I know of!

    Um.... I think the bible invented fear... didn't it?

    Nah - It was American President Franklin Delano Roosevelt.



    Mind you, for a while we had nothing to fear but the American President!

    P.S. I meant to say "the biggest killer in western society".
