Otherwise a DNR seems like a get-rich-quick or die trying scheme to sue someone because they didn't know about a piece of paper

That cant happen, good Samaritan laws prevent anyone being sued from an unknown DNR or injury that might have been incurred when the person doing the "saving" was trying to help the victim

When revival is impossible.
My uncle hit a telephone pole at 100mph on a harley, bounced off and hit a steel fence post (snapping it off) then continued flying another 200 feet before landing on his butt(compressing his spine into his brain).
The fence post held up a barbed wire fence, which ripped his right arm off, leaving it hanging by the connective tissue in his anterior deltoid. When EMts arrived he had bled out. They pumped him full of plasma and restarted his heart twice on the way to Odessa Regional Hospital.
After a 5 months in am induced coma, a gang of surgeries to remove tissue that died from trauma shock, and another brush with death from VRE, he has survived. That was 17 years ago.

Why should someone want to be saved...just to die later? We can't live forever.
