Now everyone is talking about the Mayan Prophecy of the end of the world. - To the Mayans - Only South America was the world to them. So - the thing is it just might turn out to be a really big storm - kinda like 'El Niņo'
But let's just imagine it were to really be the end of the world. - what would you do in your final day?
If you don't know, how about I offer some suggestions:
1. build an underground bunker
2. buy scuba gear even though you live in Nebraska (learn to swim)
3. buy all the junk food you ever loved and just pig out
4. have a movie marathon of all your favorites
5. have as much sex as you possibly can
6. gather all your family together
7. build an Ark with your community
8. max out all your credit cards
9. buy that dream car you always wanted
10.go around shaking everyone's hand
11.get a gun and shoot all the trespassers that keep breaking in.
12.smoke and drink yourself to death before the end comes.
I would visit all my ex-girlfriends and say goodbye one last time and hope to get some action. With my luck - the end of the world won't come and I'll be stuck paying a whole bunch of child support. lol.
I'd say "Well, that sucks." and go on doing what I usually do until the apocalypse. I don't have the best life, or even a good one, in some ways, but I'd kinda like to see how it goes without the world ending beforehand.
I think I would make peace with myself as well as be there for my loved ones... and that means clearing my conscience as much as settling old scores. I couldn't say now whether that would mean turning to religion.. I think I would have to experience the impending doom to know truly whether I would do that or not, but I would certainly try to clear all outstanding 'business' on my mind.
On my last day I would probably watch the Star Wars prequels back-to-back, at least then I could look forward to the sweet release of death...
What I find most disheartening about that statement is that you'd only watch the PREQUELS back-to-back?! Did you forget about 4,5, and 6? If not, perhaps you don't like them, but they all seem damn important to me being a HUGE Star Wars nerd.
Anyways, I think I would just chill out with my wife in Ireland. We'd just take all the money we had and go to the countryside and stay there. If 2012 were to come(which it will on the calendar but not end of the world status) and you couldn't stop it for any reason, it would be important to be with family and friends in the end.
I think I'd find the biggest party I could, get thrashed and do things I usually don't in polite society, maybe travel if I had the time. If it was global or something I would probably get family oriented in the last couple. If it was escapable like the cities mall got wasted I think heading for the boonies would be called for probably try to get me and mine as far away from the danger zone as possible. Start stockpiling canned food and shotguns and all that.
Find a Bugatti Veyron, preferably the EB 16.4 Veyron Pur Sang, nick it and go for the ride of my life. I mean 1001 HP and over 400 km/h make for a shitload of fun.
For those who've never seen one, this is a Bugatti Veyron :
It is only the ignorant who despise education.
So god made me an atheist. Who are you to question his wisdom?!
