I respectfully disagree. Are you seriously comparing taking drugs to being in an airplane? There are people with bad heart but live long because they take care of their body. You're reacting as if he had no chance of living long regardless of how he took care of himself.

I'm not gonna say Bias was an idiot if he wasn't aware of his heart condition, but OD is an OD. He took the drugs knowing the consequences. He has nobody to blame but for himself.
