I've never wrote Will. That little shit pulled by hair and we haven't been friends ever since.

When you have stuff of value to give away.

So am I.

But if you don't own anything it doesn't matter. If you own stuff write one now. If you have assets over $2 million (depending on the year), create a trust or the fees will kill you.

If you have children you don't love equally.

Just don't tell your kids what they are getting.

When you're not an old man living alone, surviving on cat food and social security, waiting for the end to arrive.

In other words, now would be a good time.

You don't want to die intestate, because then the state decides who gets your stuff.  Recall that this is the same state that can't run a DMV office effectively.

The "Write Your Own Will v1.0" software packages aren't always legal, but they're probably not a bad place to generate some ideas, and maybe start the decision making process.  Afterwards, see the lawyer to make it official.

Everyone over 18 should have a living will, that designates who gets to pull the plug on you. This is a very considerate thing to do for your family, so that they do not have to (and can't) fight over who gets to decide what to do if you go partially brain dead.

'cause if they can't decide, Congress gets to try.

So hoping for some kind of miracle short circuit isn't the best?

I figured it gave me an out, if you know...

Maybe the big guy would see signing a paper that said 'kill me' pretty much the same as killing yourself. I hear he really think the latter is wrong so the short hoping for a short circuit route is safer.

Now is the best time, though it depends on whether you want the next-of-kin to inherit.
