So, Ive just watched Deep Impact on TV.. for the I dont know how manyth time. And everytime it gets me thinking ??? Would would I do.
I want to pose this question to you people here at ASF and see what your varying answers are, and ill share with you my answer.
Ok, so lets just say that there is an extinction level event about to happen on earth, lets just say this happens to be a meteor impact that will strike the ocean, yet will still cause a extinction level event due to its size, so that in a week the world is blanketed in dust and within a mnth all plant life is dead and within 4mnths all animal life is dead. Obviously when i say "all", there will be species that survive.. but we'll just say all for convienience.
It doesnt matter if your city is destroyed instantly by the tsunami, within mnths you prolly will be as well from lack of food and water or from other people in gang warfare for survival.
WHAT WOULD YOU DO ????
Would you seek survival at all costs and try to survive as long as you can, as a prime directive that all organisms have embedded in their brains. Or would you commit suicide b4 or as the event is happeneing without trying to survive, or would you try to survive but if you found it to hard would you kill your self ?
I know your going to hear people saying, yes i can survive woithout technology, all humans did only hundreds of years ago.. YES.. but not in cities the size of brisbane where all our food is imported. Cities today are not self sufficient.
This is what I would honestly do. Im in brisbane on the coast, so if i knew the meteor was hitting the pac ocean, id go to the beach and get so drunk and take as many Ecstacy pills as i could and live out the last few hours as the happiest and most carefree person on this great planet. I would be killed without fear or pain. Id take a portable boom box with me and blast it and dance away, and take friends if they wanted to do the same.
Regardless of what my family was doing, thats what i would do, if they wanted id give them a stash of substances they could keep if they ever felt the need to painlessly kill themselves.
If i wasnt going to be killed from the wave instantly, i would try to survive but have the pills as back up incase it got to hard.
With out a future, i can see no point in living.
thoughts, people ????
By the way, im 19 and have no kids or anything, so for me, ending my life wouldnt be like im leaving my kids to fend for themselves or anything.
Even though its pretty impossible to say what i would do if i had a wife and kids, id like to think we could all go out together, happy, together and without fear of trying to live in a dead world.
