In some way I can not explain, you wake up on a beautiful summer morning and you realize something, tomorrow you will not wake up. If this were ever to happen to you; How would you spend that final day of your life. You can do anything, and everything is at your disposal. You have 24 hours... Go!

I'll begin with my final day; IMO I think spending this final day with those your going to miss seems wrong. My last hours are not going to be spend depressed for those who I am going to leave behind. So basically I tell nobody about what I know. I give everyone in my family a hug and a kiss goodbye and set out.

I start with seeing all major landmarks that I have never seen in my life, whether it be Paris, New York, Africa, China. I would like to see some different cultures and i would make sure I fit a few of them in. After seeing parts of the world that I have never before, I think i would begin my final party. Probably seems off to some people but if its my last night, You have to have some fun. So my final night would be an all out bash with all my best friends, and while they think about the hang over they will endure tomorrow, I smile thinking lucky me. Optimistic til the end and always with a smile. Thats how i try to live and thats how I am going out.

Im sure any posts after mine will blow my final day out of the water; but I would say that I went out a happy man.

I'd wake up and make a good old fashion breakfast with my mom's pancakes (the greasest in the world). Then I'd hook up with some old friends play a couple games of basketball. Final thing i'd do is climb Mount St. helens once more and watch the sunset with a 40 in one hand a lit cuban in the other complete with a one finger salute.

I don't think I'd tell anyone, either. Except for my step-daughter--only because I'd have to give her the charge of looking after my mom (who's 80--I live with her and love her dearly) in my place. I know she loves her as I do and so I trust her to do right and be responsible toward the main things (my mom's happiness and sense of safety.)

I think I would write a few letters, not many, and not long--because even as I wouldn't need to burden anyone before I left, at the same time, I wouldn't want to leave those things unsaid that should be said (one more 'I love you', you were my truest friend, thank you, and yada yada yada).

If I had any money, at all (which is a big IF) I'd give it away to someone in need. I'd say I'd give my stuff away, but I really don't have much--I've given most of it away or otherwise unburdened myself already. I would leave something for my dog to sniff so she wouldn't get lonely for me. I'd go to the river and look for a sandhill crane, and listen to Led Zeppelin and Jimi Hendrix, in memory of all the times I'd been there before. I might carve my name in one of the pecan trees in our yard.

Other than that, I think I'd just wait (inwardly celebrating--I think I would be rather excited and I'd have to try to conceal that fact.)

Most people don't want to think about such things--I must honestly say that I'd be eager for the adventure. I love my life--it is truly good; full of simple happiness and true peace of mind. But I don't believe that death is the end--I feel certain that it is more like a doorway--the threshold to the other side which will make this present reality seem like a plastic dream. If I'm wrong (possible but not probable, IMO) then that's okay, too--I'd rather leave this world in my prime as opposed to wasting away from it, day by day, confined to a bed in a sickroom somewhere. No matter what, I'd be happy till the end and have no regrets, unfinished business, or unsettled grudges.

I will sleep over whole day, it is just because I never can get decent sleep.
And because there is no tomorrow nothing to worry about.
I was thinking what would I do and this is the result of thorough thinking, first anyone would do is something spectacular and then you set back to what really means something to you. And then I found out it is sleeping!
After thinking of the possibilities I dismissed one by one as nothing really important and of course it can't change anything for the good.
I think I would like to pay my debts to people I borrow money from maybe that is.
Well is this about my last day or World last day in this latter case I am sure it would be interesting even without mine ideas.

I suppose I'd buy a bunch of life insurance policies for my family, put together my own video obituary, and then start drinking while I watched home movies with the family.

I think I would probably get on a train with some family probably (I'm not sure) head up into Scotland Get off the train at fort William and Walk up ben Nevis again, and spend the night up there. It's some of the most beautiful scenery I know of.

I think that I would break out a few lawn chairs, grab a cooler filled with ice -- a run to the beer store would fill it , and then I'd sit on the front lawn....waiting. I don't know how the world would end but I wouldn't want to miss it.

Of course, sitting out on the front lawn, I'd have a chance to say good bye to all of my neighbors and I'd invite them to join me. If I'm lucky, I'll have a good street party going before the meteor smacked into the earth or the poles flip or a gamma ray burst hit the Earth. Whatever, I'd be out there partying, having a good time while toasting humanity for it's "good run". To bad we didn't last longer than the dinosaurs!

I might want to go out and spend 100k on some really hot prostitutes. If the world is coming to an end why not go out with a bang.

More to come of this end-of-the-world scenario.

I would... Probably have a nervous breakdown.

I wouldn't tell anyone either.

I'd take out as many life insurance policies as I could with the beneficiaries being a few of my favorite nurses, developmentally dissabled children, strippers, security personnel, and distant family members. (I have an interesting support group of friends that cover the tax bracket spectrum, society classes spectrum, and well .... you get the idea. I have friends who are bishops and friends who are prostitutes and friends who are employesd at the pentagon, and friends who are ... well, friends.

What I would do for myself:
2) Nearest Largest Aqarium visit
3) Visit a nursing home or retirement home to spend a couple of hours with the most distant vacant eyed soul I could find.
4) Go watch David produce a porn (David is one of only 2 legal liscened porn producers in Las Vegas, and has a wharehouse compound complex near the Luxor on the Strip). David is a friend.
5) I'd devulge all I know and have logical deductive reasoning to support and write it on paper and send it out.
6) I'd make love to something or someone.
7) I'd cross the line at Groom Lake / Area 51 with a nothing to loose attitude (not like I have anything to loose now).
8) I'd spend 3 hours on BTS / ATS telling all I know to include the classified stuff.
9) I'd meet a few of you in person.
10) I'd spend some time looking at Stars I've never seen.
11) I'd walk the busy big city streets most of the early morning hours.
12) Public transportation, I'd ride the bus for a while and people watch.
13) I'd video record my own eulogy (spelling?), because no one else should have to, and I knew myself better than they did.
14) I'd mail my personnel video collection back to the women that made them with me.
15) I would go have a talk with Osama Bin Laden. Seriously.
16) I would go have a talk with President Bush. Seriously.
17) I would go have a talk with the Pope. Seriously.
18) I would wax my entire body.
19) I would request the morticians or the funeral home hook up a coulple dry-cell batteries to my body and attach them to the motor of a RC controlled device and that they activate the device to make my body start twitching during visitation.
20) I would take a lot of poop inducing meds. (I never enjoyed having to push on the lower abdomen of individuals that just passed to clean out their "rectal vault", and I don't want anyone to have to manually remove the last of my bowel movements from me, and clean it up on my behalf. just lookin out).
21) If I still had time I would go outside the Earth's atmosphere to the space station or space shuttle, whatever, as long as I can see the Earth from up there and see how the stars really are without the 70% of light missing that is refracted by the Earth's atmosphere.

I'd take out a huge loan and throw a party for everyone I knew. I wouldn't tell them what the party was for, though. Then when I die the next day, the bank can suck up the costs
