    One Week to Live...

    Imagine you only have one more week to live... What would you
    do? And don't say anything stupid, either. Keep it realistic. Let's
    say you only have $500, so "traveling the world" is pretty much
    out of the question (besides, by the time you got anywhere
    interesting, you'd already be dead).

    Also, you still have bills to pay. Rent, Car Payment, Internet,
    etc. All of those are due tomorrow. Would you do the moral thing
    and pay them, or would you just forget about them all together?

    Oh, and it's the middle of winter. Snow everywhere. No chance
    of doing anything 'extreme' that you've always wanted to do.
    Like Skydiiving, or Surfing, or any other Hippie-sport.

    Would you tell anybody? What would your last meal be?

    One more thing. Let's not say that your death is 100% going to
    happen. No, only... um.... 90%. You may still live, and if you do,
    you're going to have to live with all the decisions you made when
    you thought you were going to die. So if you quit your job, and
    you end up not dying -- you're screwed. Hehehe.

    If I told you what I'd do, this board'd get mad at me. Basically, lots of

    sex
    drugs
    killing
    destruction

    Re: One Week to Live...

    >>Imagine you only have one more week to live... What would you
    do?

    I'd be honest with everyone important in my life, and say anything that i felt needed to be said. I would write my will, and try to arrange it so that i would not only see all of my family, or as much as i could, but make sure i didn't leave any insane debt behind me.

    >>Also, you still have bills to pay. Rent, Car Payment, Internet,
    etc. All of those are due tomorrow. Would you do the moral thing
    and pay them, or would you just forget about them all together?

    Pay them, i used the services, besides, what if i live?

    >>Oh, and it's the middle of winter. Snow everywhere. No chance
    of doing anything 'extreme' that you've always wanted to do.

    I've always wanted to try snowboarding down insane hills. HAH! Thats extreme....boya!

    >>Would you tell anybody? What would your last meal be?

    I wouldn't tell anyone, just make sure i got to see them. My mate, should i have one at the time, would know, maybe. I wouldn't want them stressing more than they already would.

    Right. So I grab by board and do some drops off the neighbours roof. ... So basically... life as normal.

    Then maybe I guess go live life a little... Go get wasted with the guys, get chased by the cops, end up at a girlfriends place for the night. ... Damnit... Its looking a lot like my weekend again.

    >>What would your last meal be?

    Something out of a can or box. If I've only got a week to live, I'm not wasting it eating or preparing to eat. ...
    * 'fesses up * Aw, hell; So it looks like absolutly nothing in my life would change. What can I say? I already do everything I want to do. Life is good.

    If I was absolutley certain I was going to die, I guess I would just do things I have always wanted, not sure what those would be though..

    I would make sure to write up a will, and do all the necessary things, arrangements for family etc.

    I would probably tell most people, but not everyone... most likely family and really close friends.

    Oooo, that's tough. Basically, I suppose, I'd be focused most on enjoying the final days of my life - do things I wouldn't normally do as to not sacrifice my dignity, etc. And pretty much everything that RoD said, but to hell with bills and payments

    Are you actually capable of doing all those, Krak??
    I am against the teaching of evolution in schools. I am also against widespread
    literacy and the refrigeration of food.

    Why would you ask us such a dismal question? You negative creep
    If I had a week to live and 500 bucks to blow, I would not pay the bills. /*Weird circumstance, I usually pay the bills. Im not cheap */ I would call in sick for a week, and then....

    $500.... hmmm

    Hire a hooker a day for a week. 500 should be enough for that

    steal some more money then gets lots of alcohol and women. Thats the best idea I could think of, but I doubt anyone would do that. If you had 1 weeks to live youd be in hospital dying.

    I don't think anyone would belive that he is going to day at a certain date, but if that happened, I think people will do things that they wouldn't do if they are not going to die after a week, and you can imagine that... every person choose make things that he won't do if he was to stay alive for a longer period of time.

    I don't know what I'd do - probably about what lightatdawn said - just live it up for a week - go out happy.

    That's something he would not do if he know he will be alive for more than a week.
