Because I'm morbid...
« on: 22 Feb 2008, 22:02 »

We may have had a thread like this in the past, but I don't remember, and a quick search didn't bring up anything, so....


Lets say you were given two weeks left to live. Taking into consideration your current financial status, as well as your relationships, promises you've made, etc etc, what would you do? Think about this. Seriously think about it. I want some good well thought out answers.



All things considered, I think I would try to convince the zoo keepers at our local zoo to let me pet the giraffes, and elephants. And maybe feed the penguins.


If that didn't work, I'd organize a group of people to help me break into the zoo at night, and pet/free the animals. We'd either just free them, or arrange to have them sent back to where they belong. Then the people who helped me would dress as the animals who we sent away, and replace them in their exhibits, or we'd place stuffed animal versions of the original animals in the exhibits.


I guess if that didn't work out, I'd go to Chicago for a bit. Maybe just travel around America for two weeks.


So what would you do? I want details. I want to know why. Seriously put thought into your response.

I would devote my final two weeks to creating a piece of artwork that leaves a lasting legacy. On the one hand, that is a noble thought. On the other hand, much of that time would be spent working on a computer, which is pretty sad.

Something boring. I highly doubt doing something like jumping out of a plane or whatnot will make me feel "alive." Maybe just rent some movies and buy some candy... I love candy...

Do you mean like drop dead at the 2 week mark? Or a more realistic slowly degrade till death type?

I would probably go out with my friends one last time, then head into the Rockies, likely dying before my two weeks were up. I have no desire for a funeral, nor to leave a mark or a legacy. I would like to just disappear quietly.

Write and produce an album. Spend time when my family and friends. Take a whirlwind tour of the world with my closest loved ones.


Oh, and set things on fire with impunity. Since I'll be dying in two damn weeks.

That's a very good question.  I can't rightly say what I'd do.

The part of me that wants to live on after I die would finally get around to writing that book I've had planned.  2 weeks isn't enough, though, so I'd have to share with my brother what my plans were so he'd be able to finish it.

Mostly, I'd just want to go visit the good internet friends of mine I care about a lot.  I love a lot of them as family or possibly more, and I'm rather depressed with how hard it is for me to make good friends in my hometown, so it'd be a good way to go out, I think.

I'd have to let all my friends on the internet know, and spend the last two weeks with my family, friends and girlfriend. i'd tell everyone how much i love them and how great they've made my life. only before i'm dying though, parents didn't raise me to show emotions. (they're not like waspy 'stiff upper lip' kinda people, they just didn't really do a good job of raising me) ((i wouldn't bring this up))

Damn it Dan, party foul.

I would drink the tapwater here, and the resulting giardia will give me EPIC diahrrea (which is probably what would kill me), at which point I will go around town shitting on everyone and everything I can get my hands (ass?) on.

Fuck you, I'm a dying man, I will do whatever I want.

I will empty my savings and fly to Egypt. According to Expedia this will take up most of my savings, so once there I will probably live like a homeless person so I can afford to see all the sites.

After that I could die happy.

My last two weeks would involve chaos, fire, and massive property damage (probably of the government's), High speed chases and then shootouts with the police. I'm not gonna die in bed like no pansy-boy.

What I'm trying to say I'd dream of all of this while dying in bed due to whatever the hell was killing me in two weeks, because if I was feeling good enough to be doing all that I'd have trouble believing I was dying.

Fuck PETA, this is happening.

I would procure a rifle that fires tranquilizers and go bear hunting. We've all heard my old plan, but since Randy Milholland stole it, I had to adjust it:

I would find and tranq a bear and drag it to a nearby set of train tracks. I would then chain the bear to the tracks and punch it in the face as soon as I hear a train approaching. I will forever be remembered as "that guy who got hit by a train whilst fighting a bear."

Feasible? Maybe not. But it's my dream.

It sounds like you only have enough money for one try at it, so don't go to Cairo, go to Luxor. It would be pretty pathetic to die in the middle of a tourist trap while all the interesting sites are in another part of the country.

i've always been curious about it, but would never do it because i don't think being a junky would really suit me.
i'd also steal a sweet car, a sporty little european one, maybe an old james bond car.
lastly i would forgive everyone for everything. after of course fucking with them for a little while.

heroin.

That is a really good idea although you'd feel pretty silly if it turns out you weren't dying and you were on candid camera. Surprise! You're addicted to heroin!

However, I am changing my vote to doing heroin and then posting about it on the internet.

I would:

b) Spend all of my money on a trip to London with whoever will come with me and as many jaffa cakes as it'll buy me.
c) Finally see stone henge even if I have to hitchhike to get there and...
d) Wait in the center (after having snuck up there and hiding my whereabouts so as not to die in prison under charges of tresspassing) until I die peacefully so my face will be on the front page and spirtual/crazy people can forever speculate about my death.

My twin brother and I have declared that we're going to do the Camino De Santiago together sometime during our lifetimes. I'd do as much of that as I could in 2 the weeks.

If there was any extra time, I'd probably just get drunk with my good friends, or something. I'd say goodbye to as many of the people I care about as I could, and then spend my last moments just chilling with my brother.

Re: Because I'm morbid...
« Reply #49 on: 23 Feb 2008, 23:57 »

i really don't want to die lately. i say lately because i was totally suicidal for most of the past two years. i'd probably fly to my parents for a half day to say goodbye, get on a plane to emory to see the one person i think i could love, and if she rejected me, i would fly to europe to stay with two of my best friends and try spend half of each day writing a novel and the other half trying to party as hard as anyone ever has.

i met a 65 yr old woman tonight who truly ran away from home when she was 16. her father was trying, but unable, to find her for nearly a year when she did it. she, more than anyone i know, lives life to the fullest. she said that, since then/having no food to eat for a week, the rest of life got a little bit easier. she still goes back to the little town in nantucket each year to remember just how the year felt for her.
