Main Question or Discussion Point

What would you do if you knew when you'd die? Would it make any difference in your life?
What would you do if you knew you would be alive less than 1 year(or 1 month, 1 week...)? :rolleyes:

I don't think I would change much. I never assume the morrow will come.

Well, if I knew I would only be around another week, I wouldn't be worrying so much about moving in a week and a half. :biggrin: And if I'd only be around another month, I'd definitely join Zz for his September Disney trip instead of waiting until January. Anything further away than that and I probably wouldn't change much.

Oh really? You don't want to kiss and make up with God whether he exists or not? o:)
Aw I think I'd have alot to do. Perhaps I start writing one of stories in my mind. But no let's forget it, I don't want to become famouse after my death. :zzz: I should do whatever I like.(I'm doing the same now) :rolleyes:

By the way, how would you feel? Happy or sad or even excited?

Good point. But you know I would join Zz for a trip whenever I decide to kill myself! :tongue2: He's not around here, is he? :uhh:

I hope that I am awake and aware. I want to know what people see when their eyes grow wide with awe.

A close friend of the family died recently. As has happened with others, at the moment of death his eyes grew very wide and he looked all around the room as if it was filled with people.

There was a hospice nurse who wrote a book in which she proclaims, "you don't want to miss your own death". Apparently it can be quite a beautiful experience.

God and I are just fine.

Yeah, I'm really curious to know what happens. I think death is the most mysterious and intersting event or perhaps travel in everyone's life. Sometimes I envy people who have died, I don't know why. Because I enjoy my life but I think when someone dies s/he feel superior to alive people. And laugh at people who are afraid of death.

I think the power to die is within your hands,you just need a bit of courage.!
And you can anytime become superior!

:rofl:What do you mean by seriously joking? What you're saying is for people who don't have enough courage to continue their life. :wink: Death is a part of our life and for sure it has its specific time.

Aw Ejffel tower? You know I love jumping down from a high place because I'm so curious to know how it's like. :rolleyes: I don't know why we don't stay health when we jump down from high places but cats do. You know I think cats know physics rules better than us and they know how to use them in their lives. :wink:
Anyway I always need to be so careful when I'm standing on a high place because sometimes my curiousity is about to make me jump down! o:)

If you jumped from the Eiffel Tower, wouldn't you hit some lower metal poles?

If I knew I was dying within a week or a month I would:

-Assassinate President Bush and Bill Gates
-Go sky diving
-Have sex in public (got this one from another site)

There are probably some other good ones, but I can't think of them now.

You mean you try to know what hell is like by spending time in PF? :wink:



How do you laugh when you see some people are worried about silly things or love something damn stupid?

Aha! Clever guy, you get my point. I wanted to know if anyone would kill someone else since he knew he would die soon anyway. :wink:

Has anyone heard this one?

This guy goes to see a doctor who gives him a checkup and does tests. After looking at the test results the doctor says to the guy: "I have some terrible news. You're going to die in ten..."

The guy asks in puzzlement: "Ten what? Years? Months? Weeks?"

Doctor: "Nine... Eight... Seven..."

i thought this was heaven. o:)

i smile, and if they are damn stupid i laugh ha-ha-ha (i mean truly stupid, not acting as stupid).
usually i only smile, cause i know that i myself have some weird traits (damn, lisa, im a physics/maths/philosophy nerd, i got to have some weirdness to laugh at).
