Nah, I wouldn't be worried
 
I voted yes. At least, I could do things that I like for the rest of the time and to prepare myself to witness this unprecedented and unrepeatable event.

Now lets be honest, I think the poll should be, if you knew the world was going to end tomorrow, would you go out and... hurt people? Then I'd vote in it...

I would consider taking up heroin as it is meant to be the greatest high. Although too destructive to have in real life.

I find the form of this question rather paradoxical. Of course, this isn't the Philosophy Forum, so I wouldn't harp on some small mistakes or anything, but this one really makes the question unanswerable to me. How is it possible for me - at the time when the world was going to end soon - to choose whether I want to know about it or not? That'd be like asking, "if you were about to get wacked on the forehead, would you want to know about it?", why should I even ask if I didn't already suspect it?

Well I think I see your point. How about: If the world was going to end tomorrow would you want to know today? I don't know how I missed that.

I often write these posts in between long work sessions. Sometlimes me thingling gots a loottle cornfosed.

LOL!! We forgive you.

So, basically, you are asking, "if there were someone capable of telling you whether the world would end tomorrow or not, would you ask her?", right?

How about this? Assume that I know when the world will end. I am telling you that it could be tomorrow. Do you want to know for sure?

Okay then, yes. I don't much care for the idea of the world coming to an end without my having done at least some of the things I've wanted to do.
