OpinionIf you had good reason to believe that you only had 48 hours to live, you'd be able to think of something truly special to do.

I'd kill every motherfucker I could.... Probably not actually. I don't know.

Whenever I see this sort of question posed, or one like it about whether or not to exchange your life for someone else's, I always wonder how you could possibly be certain enough that you'd let it affect your decision making? I mean, in the real world there are only a couple of circumstances in which you'd know how and when you're going to die, and they're not ones where you'd be able to do anything special. Personally, I'd be so sceptical as to not change my behaviour at all. You'd practically have to be god-like to know for sure that you'd get away with doing something anti-social, for example.

I love weird hypothetical situations. I suppose I could think of something awesome, but would end up wasting 24 of those hours plotting ans setting everything up. Of course I wouldn't sleep those two days.

Hmmm, I'm never quite sure... I have a list of possible ideas from a song by May Contain Nuts, which is about what you'd do if the end of the world was here, gems like 'would you punch a baby in the face, and live your last few minutes living that disgrace?', or 'go and find a bar, and drink it dry as chaos unfolds'. I think I'd probably just go collect all my best mates together and get thoroughly trashed at an awesome pub I know, which would gladly open for 48 hours straight if it was a situation like that! :) At present I would probably go find my ex as well, as I KNOW we'd have fun if I only had 48 hours left ;)

OMFG! Having sex with your SO until the end of the world sure is an awesome way to spend your last hours. I suspect Viagra would be quite scarce those days though, with so many dudes needing a 48hr boner.

The end of the world is a different thing altogether, and easier to envisage when you think of something like an asteroid impact. In that case you'd expect everyone to go crazy, and society to break down rapidly.

Fair point, I guess that's why I answered end of the world - cause I have an answer for that! Maybe I'd set up the ultimate suicide I've worked out... Stay up the first night building a guillotine so you're tired, then go to bed, having rigged it to 'go off' in 4-5 hours. Before bed you OD on insulin big time to make sure you wont be awake... Voila, an awesome way to go!

Incidentally insulin OD is my chosen suicide method... I've nearly done it once already! :s

The ripped-my-own-head-with-my-bare-hands suicide it very plausible, with minor tweaks. http://uncyclopedia.wikia.com/wiki/HowTo:Kill_Yourself#Method_8:_Emotionally_Disturbing_Piano_Wire_Beheading Looking for this link I found out that making your own time-guillotine has been already done. sheesh. http://nosheep.net/story/man-commits-suicide-with-homemade-guillotine/
