It is announced on the Emergency Broadcast System that an enemy state has launched a nuclear weapon. It cannot be intercepted and you have 5 mins to live. How would you spend those last 5 mins?

Personally, I would take a beer and sit on a bench in my garden.

Humpy - will have a second beer, and will the bench be big enough to accomodate a visitor? If so, I'll head to your garden (make sure the beer is cold please).

This should be in Chit Chat.

Uh...5 mins? I would probably just carry on as I normally do. Now if I had 24 hours, that would be a different story

posted on Apr, 13 2004 @ 06:43 AM
errr...well I think most people would just be like "OH MY GOD!!!!!! WE'RE GONNA DIE!!!!!!!!!!! ARGH!!!!!!!!!!!! HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" and generally run around flapping their arms about.

Or some kind of variation like that.

I'd tell my boss what I really think of him

I would relax, light a marlboro, pop open a bottle of single malt, and just chill.

Ah, peace at last.

if that ever came about, hopefully i'll be surfing, if not, and i was a home, i'd have to say that i would lie on the grass in the sun, and close my eyes.

I would totally jump off a really tall building and spend those last 5 minutes free falling.

But if someone walked up to me and was like oh I forgot to tell you, you're about to die in 5 minutes, and I didn't have time to get to a realy tall building, I'd run down the hall, grab my lover, and lets just say go crazy woooo.

U would have to get to the top of the really tall building before u jump off basically ur gonna be sooo tired that ur just gonna wanna die anyway

I doubt we would even get 5 mins notice, especially since i live in the UK and am way closer to the threat of certain nations than any of u in the US...well have a nice 5 mins if it ever comes to it...ill be crying like a baby

I'd probably get on ATS and make a thread called: "We have 5 minutes to live, what's everyone doing?"

In the following minute I'd make another thread called..

"We all have 4 minutes to live now, what's everyone doing?"

then I'd make another thread called

"We now have only 3 minutes to live, what's everyone doing?"
That is bound to upset some mods though, and maybe my first 3 threads will be trashed, and this would take about a minute, so now we have only 1 minute left. I'd then check ATSNN to make sure we're still the best news agency in the world, cuz we'd have the countdown timer with thread replies and everything!

With 20 seconds left I have time to realise that 5th density won't be so bad at all, I'll have no physical body, I'll not be affected by "time" at all, and I'll be able to haunt Colonel and write "repugnant" on the condensation of his bathroom mirror for the rest of his days, if he survivies the nuke. What could possibly be better?

Ah but on a serious note, knowledge protects! The beginning is the end and vice versa. Death is Birth. Death is only the expiration of the physical body, but the consciousness lives on, so unless you're attached to the physical, you shouldn't worry

Buy some pizza, and go down in the sewers of N.Y, I don't know if thats a good idea though. It probably needs to be deeper.

hmmmm sex with gal pal................or 2

if no women are around/don't have time, I think I would try to find a bunch of heroin and try that - what the hell, i'm gunna die anyway right? besides, I hear it's better then sex

that single malt does sound good - i have a 30 year old bottle i've been saving

call my mom dad - fam in general, and tell them I loved them.

Praying sounds like a good idea.

Maybe I'd go throw a TV out my 3rd story window - nothing says "WE'RE ALL GUNNA DIE!!!!!!" more then a little chaos.

ohhhh - and eat all my roomates food - since they always eat mine
