One hour left - what would you do before the end of the world?

I found this quite interesting: http://uk.reuters.com/article/oddlyE...56630420071011

"An asteroid is on collision with the earth - you have 60 minutes left to live. How would you spend your last hour?"

That's quite difficult, because until it happened, who really knows? But if I had to choose, I think I'd fall into the 54% who'd be on the phone to friends and family, but not for a whole hour

Then maybe I'd get drunk, look at some old photos, play some REALLY loud music, and finish off with something hysterically funny on TV so I could die laughing!

Sadly, the reality is I'd probably waste the entire hour panicking about what to do first. . .

i could go either way, i'd either play the homebird and gather up both my parents, my two dogs, have a cup of earl grey, me and my father would congratulate each other on our amazing foresight and claim we at last got one thing right! we would probably discuss where the likelyhood of its primary impact and whether there would be just one or numerous impact sites. and try and have a game amongst us to see who can feel the impact in some far flung country first, and then time its arrival as the shockwave travels round the globe, assuming its an E.L.E.

or

i might let my dark side loose, grab the car and go do some 'stuff'.

i doubt i would spend it on the phone, one hour?...pleaseeee - my call rates are far too expensive!

I'd take a nap and wait for the eternal darkness.

That split second of pain when the asteroid hits would be too much

Honestly, what else is there to do? How much of your life can you change in an hour?
No time to do anything new and why spend the last hour of your life hurrying to do the things you've done a thousand times before or things you'd never do (and therefore not who you are)?

If I'm around friends and family, we'd relax with good whiskey and reminisce and look to the skies...

If I'm alone, then I'd take a nap. The phones won't be working anyhow.

Kidnap a space crew and force them to take me to a space station where I would spend the rest of my time listing to music and enjoying the view (exploding earth).

Although realistically it wouldn't work out due to several reasons. So I'd probably take my portable rig and go on top of sears tower and jump about 10 mins before said asteroid hits.

Like skydiving with out the safety gear and personal soundtrack.

Be a shame if the moment you leapt - an announcement was made that the date was wrong!

I wouldn't be brave enough to jump, I'd like to disintegrate with everyone else

Honestly I never even tried any illegal drugs in my life only cause I never wanted to..but I would have to agree with you on this...

I would pop every bottle of champagne I have starting with the Cristal and then the last 30mins or so just do some Acid..

Why not? saying good bye to people won't do much cause everyone is going to die so...Party and go out with a smile!

Good thing I wouldn't be able to hear it then (ignorance is bliss... and so is audio)
