I did mean the former. In other words no truly silly ability to survive
things that should just plain kill a person/character should be allowed. It
is a game and characters, especially in things like Shadowrun, can die
(horribly) and should if they are stupid or careless.

As to taking too much time ... raise the difficulty ridiculously or make 5
rolls raising the difficulty exponentially. This will cut down on the rolls
if players must be given their chance to survive sudden death. OR they
forfeit all of their Karma to date and survive teetering on the brink of
death and be laid up in the hospital for month = damage over flow in months
