Oh Nooo! You Have One Day To Live! What Do You Do?

Sun Sep 18, 2005 5:59 am

So you've just found out that the world will be destroyed in one day. A giant meteor is thundering in our direction at a speed of one grillion miles per second, and it will hit the earth in exactly 24 hours. And you're the only one who knows!

DON'T PANIC!

What do you do during your final hours?

I can't and don't want to think about that, as every reasonable answer I would give now might be obsolete when reality strikes in with this event.

On a lighter side I would wine about that there probably would never be another update of birdwatching.cc  Smile

I agree, also getting to and from the places might be hard to arrange at such short notice.

If I found out it was going to be my last day on mother Earth, I would probably start off by going and seeing Concorde at Filton. She is such a great plane and would be the last plane I would like to see in real life. Then I would go and do some duff landings on MS flight sim ( the only type of landing I know how to do  Smile ). Church would also be high up on the list, so I could try and find out what tomorrow would bring. An hour before it hit, I would go home and watch it live on a news channel.

But on a serious note, I would probably break in to Foreign Motors West in Natick, somehow steal a Phantom, and drive the hell out of it to the closest airport. I would then proceed to steal an airplane and go on the flight of my life....somehow land safely.....return to the Rolls and drive to my gf's place.

Have a feast with my family. Arabic food, country food, drinks, the works. Play with my dog, go swimming, go tanning. Relax. Drive the Porsche real fast. Test out how well quattro works on my Audi.... get on A.net and look at pretty pics of airplanes.... go to Neiman Marcus and spend 20,000 dollars on clothes for me and the family. Prada, Gucci, Loro Piana, Ermenegildo Zegna, Armani. I'll make sure we all are dressed well and very much together when its time to go.

Hookers, lots and lots of hookers.

Lots of speeding, and calling people on the phone who I don't like and telling them what I think of them. Unless they live nearby, then I will do it in person.

Heh! I flew 510PC a couple times; one of my friends actually has that plane's reg. number in his IM name  Smile

As for what I'd do, hell if I know. Probably have a lot to do with walking around swigging well-aged Scotch and playing songs on the harmonica, having a grand ol' time! Then take a plane up and skydive without a parachute, making sure the earth blows up before I hit the ground. If I'm gonna die, I might as well have fun and go out with a bang!

Oh hell, this is fantasy.... right.

So....

I'd head out to the airport and take off in my favourite plane and do all the things that the Air Regs won't let you do every day.
Such as... Fly UNDER the Bridge, BETWEEN the Buildings, with a few loops, rolls, Cuban Eights, etc., thrown in for fun.

Then land, spend an afternoon of great SEX with my special lady, followed by a nice BBQ dinner of all the things the Health Nuts say you shouldn't have.

A nice bottle of 15-year-old Havana Club Rum, a Cohiba Robusto cigar, put my feet up and sit around a nice bonfire till the end comes.

Ahhhhh.... dying with a smile on your face.

1. Quickly shoot myself to get it overwith.

2. Screw my friend until about an hour before hand. Then we get drunk.

3. Go to the middle of nowhere and sing show tunes.
