Jon, have you noticed the ads for the new movie titled, "Breaking
Bad"? My intuition is that the desire for alliteration dissuaded the
producers from the use of the cooler and the goner, "Breaking Nasty."

All say, "How hard it is that we have to die"---a strange complaint to
come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
