Buy one of everything.
Alright. Maybe two. On credit.
Alright. I'd probably head to Africa with some clever "birth of civilization, end of civilization" excuse. On credit.

I'd die......no I would turn myself into a robot, and survive! MWUHAHAHAHAHA!!!! :P :D :lol: B) :blink: :huh:

I'd go swiming in water, its like WET. :o

IŽd just continue with my life - after all thereŽs not much more you can do in a week, is there? Everything would be over in a instant - well perhaps 8 mins. or so, when the explosion actually arrives & converts the Earth into a cinder! :(

I buy a few bottles of factor 5000! :P
2004-Feb-26, 01:45 PM
I'd steal a machine gun, break into Woomera, hijack a scramjet rocket & blast off out of the solar system! (First I would fill the spaceship up with booze, drugs, women, and frozen pizzas!)... :lol: :lol: :lol:

If you sold tickets I'd buy one. Stay on earth and fry, or see the galaxy... easy choice really.
2004-Feb-26, 06:26 PM
I would just kick back on my lawnchair with a bud light in one hand and a bottle of Jack on the other hand. WHOO HOO!!!!
2004-Feb-27, 01:18 AM
LOL I think you'd find it hard to buy *anything* if it's common knowledge the world was gonna end... also, I should think they'd put a stop on all credit transactions and unnecessary travel to avoid exactly these kinds of scenarios LOL
But yes, it wouldn't stop me from trying to be with those I love.

I was wondering, if some doomsday scenario like this DID occur, would the governments of the world continue to "govern" right up to the last minute? I mean, a few hours before the Earth blew up, could I still be fined for jay-walking?
2004-Feb-27, 04:38 AM
LOL Good point - but what cop in their right mind is going to be patrolling the streets anyway??
2004-Feb-27, 06:11 AM
An anal-retentive one.
2004-Feb-27, 07:09 AM
I'd tell my students what i REALLY think...:lol: :P
2004-Feb-27, 07:52 AM
Wait a minute....you said lets just say the Sun is going to become a white dwarf in a week.......but doesn't a star become a Red Dwarf before a White Dwarf? Also, when it becomes one, probably since it will be so massive it will consume Earth. So really forget about the week to live comment......

wine, women and song what else would there be to do!
I like the SP5000 idea though!
but then Faulkner, if I beg really, really nicely and say you were the bestest, could I come too?
2004-Mar-04, 01:29 AM
No, steal your own spaceship! :P
2004-Mar-04, 04:24 PM
Didn't your mum teach you to share?
Or are you just like Golem! :lol:
I would have to do all the crazy things I daren't do for fear of death... I'd buy the most powerful motorbike I could get my hands on and race around like there was no tomorrow, literally! :ph34r:
2004-Mar-04, 04:34 PM
I'd go up to northern (really northern) California to Mt. Shasta and enjoy my favorite view, not to mention the night sky is absolutely lovely up there. B)
2004-Mar-05, 02:51 AM
wine, women and song
I think more along the lines of "sex, drugs & rock'n'roll"! B)
But seriously, if I couldn't steal a scramjet rocket - (or if, say, it hadn't been built yet :P ) - I'd probably loot a bottleshop & take myself a long, long way outa this city! Somewhere out whoop-whoop! :lol:
Maybe I'd find a cave & go down it & be protected from the Sun's supernova, so when I came out I would be the OMEGA MAN and everyone else would have turned into VAMPIRES!
2004-Mar-05, 12:38 PM
Omega Man... eh? :huh:
Is it my youth or nationality working against me here? <_<
(Does it mean the last man alive? Is this a pop culture reference? It's as lost on me as The HHGTTG is on you Faulkner!) :lol:
2004-Mar-05, 02:03 PM
Weaselbunny, "The Omega Man" starring Charlton Heston ('71) is one of the coolest films out there! Go rent it, you'll love it! ;)
It is actually a remake of "The Last Man On Earth" starring Vincent Price ('64). Both films are based on Richard Matheson's haunting novel "I Am Legend".

If you like reading fiction, I highly recommend the Matheson book.
A plague has wiped out humanity, leaving one man alive, all alone. There's a nice description of him walking through a park & hearing birds singing. He thinks to himself how (before the plague) he used to hear birds singing & thought they were happy & all was well with the world. Now he realizes they sing because they're just brainless...
I liked that, for some bizarre reason...!? :lol:
Hey, what was this topic about again??
2004-Mar-05, 06:54 PM
A Doomsday scenario, so you're not too far off. And I agree, I like it too. I'll get the book. (That's if the sun don't explode at the end of the week ;)
2004-Mar-06, 10:07 PM
I'd probably do something like sky-diving and bungee jumping.
2004-Mar-06, 10:43 PM
