    Okay, so you have 10 days to live. Money isn't a problem and you have plenty to spread around. What would you do with those final 10 days?

    My answer is that I would take my whole family to Maui and have myself cremated at the end of the trip, sending my family members with an offering of my ashes to spread over the beaches of the island.

    Good post and worth a muse - if it was a "change the world" opportunity then I think it would be a bit more of a different response - though I guess it would be the box standard reply of spending "Quality" time with one's love/r/s before departing with quiet dignity in/with an exit of personal choice (mine being - following cremation) dispatched into the breeze from Glastonbury Tor :)

    10 days to live, but I don't know if it is in the public eye and if they could take over control like they already did on the computer keyboard.

    hopefully id be able to act normal the whole time and then just take a long walk on the last day maybe sit at my favourite lunch spot instead of walking

    that's too short a period of time to really get anything out of doing anything differently then you would anyway. oh if i were working a regular job at the time i'd call in sick, depending on the culture of the work place, or just not show up if it were someplace i had no particular simpathy for. i'd try to make sure i wouldn't have anything to worry about for at least that long. but you know, i really wouldn't think of this as having that much effect on the world i'd be leaving behind.

    this is more a phylosophy and religion question then anything that would greately affect the future of anyone else.

    i really don't see very much as being all that much about my own ego.

    i would prefer though, to die alone in a state of meditation, then with anyone around making an annoying fuss about it.

    First, not telling anyone else my time's up...then,

    Giving money away, smoking cigar sized joints, meditating, and I hope making love.

    Then with 24hrs to go I sneak out in the early hours and disappear like Bilbo.

    Give money to those who need it, and die at home.

    Probably sit around a few days contemplating my mortality while working up the courage to kill myself.
    My entire life has been the story of a fatalist, so committing suicide upon the discovery that I have only 10 days to live seems to me to be the only righteous ending to my life.

    If money wasn't a problem, I'd donate a lot of it to MSF, to help with the efforts to contain the ebola epidemic in West Africa.

    And I'd use part of my savings to take my husband to snorkel and dive with whales, dolphins and sharks in the Pacific, far from other people. I'd eat lots of chocolate and ice cream and spend as much time as possible feeling his scent, his skin against mine, telling him how much I love him.

    These are things we already do/have done, together, or alone, but if I only had 10 days to live, I'd do it again immediately, instead of waiting for our next vacation.

    like any natural creature, continue to be my true self, right up to the moment. and of course that doesn't mean doing anything different then i would anyway.
  15. This thread was made 53 days ago, so I've been hypothetically dead for 43 days

    If money was no problem, I'd give everyone in the world 100 million dollars, course then the value of the dollar would plummet and everyone would be back to where they started

    And Maui is kind of boring, Oahu is where all the people are, and the Big Island is where the Volcanos are

    go skydiving in the tropics

    pay money to have dinner with some of my favorite current living musicians.

    buy one of my oldest friends a house because he comes from a very poor background.

    every night regardless of where I am id probably have 6 or 7 naked women walking around cooking and watching a movie with me when im at home.

    I wake up and pour bleach in my coffee cup
    30 more pills swallowed and now im giving no fucks
    Just 24 hrs left until I meet death
    Got a whole day of living gonna live it till my last breath
    I took some rolls to the nose, fucked some hoes
    Grabbed the .44 shot the mothetfucker at the front door
    Then snatched his keys to his 5 series
    Now I'm sittin in the front seat gunnin' at police
    On my way to the next stop
    Free mace and crack rocks
    AK47 tearin up the whole block
    Then pulled up to the Bank of America
    Steady dodging bullets like a cartoon character
    I grab the clerk by her hair told her empty out the safe
    Through all the money on the floor and shot the bitch in the face
    Only 23 hrs times running out
    Fuck all this waitin, I put the gun in my own mouth.

    I got the bad news in a phone call from a doctor sayin that I didn't have long
    24 hrs and my life's a wreck
    Now Imma spend it like a motherfuckin maniac
    Pulled up at my old job from way back in the day
    Let the window down and spray an AK
    Pull it off, roll it up and when the cops show up
    Roll the window down and throw a wicked clown sign up
    Times up in another 8 hrs
    so I wound up at my baby mammas bridal shower
    Walked up to her with my ax in hand
    Cut her head off in front of her new man
    Another quick chop to her mom and dad
    And now I'm covered in blood im headed back to my van
    My shit list is almost complete
    I got one more person to kill and that's me.

    Go Camping and spend it in nature. Where it is quiet and away from people...where I can finally breathe..

    Then die. And either be stuffed into a cool fun pose or..

    use all the money I have to get someone to not embalm me and wrap my naked body in canvas under a tree so I decompose into the Earth's womb...

    It would be Perfect.. and I would Love it.

    if not already living far enough from everyone to be sure of being able to be in undisturbed meditation when the time comes, do so.

    if there were no monetary obsticals, i'd be doing so already anyway.
