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. 


Please... FLUSH after each use.

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.

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.

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.

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.
Red, white, black are our true colours
For these colours we will fight!
Red, white, black will crush the enemy
And will bring back what is right!

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.

Soon as I found out id break up with my boyfriend so hopefully he would move on straight away so I could see him happy and make sure he'd be ok when I went
Id visit all my family and give them all a grand each
Then on the last day id go to the park where me and my boyfriend had our first date and carve our names in a tree then sit next to the tree and sleep till it was all over

i would think it must not be too serious of a relationship if he can move on and be happy in 10 days.

meditate.  ten days really isn't long enough to accomplish any more then any other ten days would have been.  isn't even long enough for things i would otherwise spend the money on to arrive. 

eat well and, if physically possible, travel, because why not.  but not in a frenzied manor either.  but to savor everything.  go to beautiful places.  ride through them alone or with complete strangers.

i wouldn't completely rely on the diagnoses either.  maybe i'll be dead and maybe i won't.  just enjoy as best i can what there is.

i think the dumbest thing to do, would be to run around crazy, trying to do all the things you hadn't done, because you were too scarred, too lazy, or they were against the law.

you'd probably turn your ten days into five, if not three or two.  unless of course that's what you wanted. 

i just can't see that myself.

odds aren't really that good that you actually be able to do all of them, even if you accepted the proposition of spending the last nine of them in straight jacket inside a room with rubber walls.

ten days is long enough to do more then sleep and meditate of course, unless you were strapped down in a hospital be, which the odds are you would be.

but only if you carefully and calmly tend them, and then savor what enjoyment you can squeeze out of them.

and i don't thing the bast way to do that, would be to attempt to do multiple things you moat likely have no idea how to go about.

i would spend them in such simple pleasures as would already be comfortably familiar to me.

for many people that would be with people they know,

but for me, that would be preferably alone. 

and i would spend a lot of that time, sleeping and meditating, and also fantacizing about the kind of world i would like there to be.

and if possible you know, creating the kind of illustrations i do, of it.

 

(most of which is, of course, pretty much as i spend any other ten days now)

I'd prove the doctors wrong, and go on a skydiving trip without a shoot in die in less than 10 days.

Thing is though if you spend 10 days trying to hook up with someone and fail, that's your last 10 days on the planet wasted, why would you not do something worth while to help people when you were gone
