This is why religion is so important! Not God, but religion. In this situation, the law of the land is useless. There is no punitive repercussion to fear.
I would rape and pillage like a rabid viking!
OK, maybe I wouldn't because I believe their is an afterlife of some kind, BUT I would really, really want to! And, if I am ever convinced that Athiests are correct, I will no longer be a civil human being. What is the point!
Whether or not the end comes in 2 years or 80, if you don't believe in an afterlife, why not get all the jollies you can handle now! The only thing stopping total chaos from people like me is this perpetrated myth of something to be good for.
Sadly, I am not ashamed of this feeling. If we are evolved from animals, and there is no intelligent design, universal life force, all-powerful God, then I have wasted a lot of years not taking whatever I want without regret.

On the day it is going to hit, I would go skydiving (the most freedom one could ever feel IMO) without a parachute..

I understand your point, but the total economic collapse(which would happen if we were told of an expiration date of our species) has not happened yet. Thus, if it did, one would likely do things different than
just being in a "recession."
As for me: I will climb to the top of the highest glacier, grip my sword between my hands and shove it into the ice below me.
When the ice shards start to hit my face, I will have only one thought running through my mind:
"For Honour. Destiny Awaits."
