    If you just found out you were going to die in a week, would you be ready? Why or why not?

    Yes I would be, I have been at peace with the reality of my own mortality for sometime now. I have a will signed, sealed and delivered, and my partner knows where to scatter my ashes. Can't think of anything else I need to think about.

    Yes, and I want to be chopped up and fed to the sharks to continue the circle of life icon_smile.gificon_smile.gificon_smile.gif


    Serious, not kidding! The Tibetans do this with vultures in the Himalayas too... and I lived in the Himalayas for 6 months, so I want at least that in the mountains honour too...

    If not, I will come back and haunt the world for their trespasses of my dying wishes icon_razz.gificon_rolleyes.gificon_cool.gif

    I think it would be a blessing to know a week in advance. I could prepare my children and my partner, as well as my family. Fortunately, as far as I know, I'm as healthy as a horse.

    I'd be cool with it. But it would take a lot of that time to go through my crap and throw stuff out, make a will, say goodbyes, delete my porn. More than a week would be helpful.

    No, I'd like to truly fall in love at least once before I die. Sounds saccharine but it's true.

    In terms of legalities, I think so. I already have a will in place.

    All the paperwork was completed years ago, thanks to a wake-up call. Would spend time with friends, check off a few more bucket list items, and pass away in my sleep late Sunday evening at 11.59 p.m. EST just as the church's start broadcasting their bs. (-;

    I think most guys approaching or past middle age have thought about this and done some preparation, if not complete prep. Younger guys probably don't think of it as much. I've certainly prepared myself and given it thought, more so as to keep from burdening my family rather than definitively choosing all the final arrangements and distributions.

    Would just as soon hang around a little longer but when the bell rings, I'm out of here!

    Once you die, you won't be able to miss it. You won't care about what you didn't do.

    True enough, but then that can be said about pretty much everything once you die. You won't be around to care.

    I wouldn't be ready in a sense because I still have so much to look forward to. Dreams that have yet to be fulfilled.

    Then again, I figure that when I die I will finally know what happens, where I'm going (if anywhere), and can let go of so much that I hold onto while in this fleshy shell.

    If nothing happens then I imagine I won't feel good or bad either way so I really have nothing to lose if that's the case. Well... except this life.

    Based on all of that, I would say that I would spend my last week facing lots of fears and doubts. I would also spend it trying to get as much laughs and good times with loved ones in before transformation or oblivion.

    ...

    What a cheery topic. :-P

    Nope. There's something I want to do first. I really should get on that.

    No. Though my friends and family are all doing fine I'd think about all the things I will never do and the events I'd miss (like my nephew growing up). I know I would try to be calm and peaceful but in reality I wouldn't be over the shock in a week's time.

    Hellll no, but I would use Tim McGraw's "Live Like You Were Dying" as my new mantra, and just have fun with my last week on Earth

    Oddly enough that's been my shower song for the past two days!
