Life is short, you are right. And like Boba said: "Everybody dies."
I was at a funeral yesterday, the funeral of a 40-years old man. His wife looked almost 10 years older than what she looked like a month ago. I mean bad things happen, nobody is happy his/her entire life.
I'm not sure what your brother means, though. If he quits his job, shouldn't he have time to come? The thing about your game, I understand, though. About 5 years ago, I borrowed a game from one of my friends, and two days later he told me he needed it back. Turned out he had borrowed it from one of his relatives. I just handed it back next day. Just tell your brother again you need it back (that is, if you do need it), I'm sure he'll get it for you.
By the way, one of my neighbours is really irritating. I have let him use my computer 3 times and 3 times he broke it. 2 times I fixed it, 1 time I had to bring it to my uncle (who fixes computers as a job). He tried to fix it, but didn't manage to, so I then had to buy a new computer, thanks to my neighbour.
Bad luck, and even worse: My neighbour ALWAYS broke my computer by mistake. I mean it would have been ok, if he would have done it by purpose... But no, he really is such an idiot.
Everyone should check out this movie. Too bad only chapter 1's ready.
