One hour left - what would you do before the end of the world? - Page 11

I would wait to see if it was a false alarm.

Sometimes, while making my weekly trip to see my son (which is a two-hour round trip out of my way), being tired and all, I'll ask myself if there's anything else in the world I'd rather be doing if I only had a few hours of life to live, and the answer is always the same.  So I keep making my trips just to see his smiling face.

 

Life is Good.

 

Cheers.

last hour..eek.gif

 

I guess I have no more excuses to put off setting up a double blind A/B testing between lossless vs 320kbs...

I'll be damned if I depart from this world without answering the "audiophiles" ultimate question of whether my super hearing can differentiate between the two...mad.gif

Uh I dunno -consider this a bump for now- maybe someone will come along and spark off an idea...

Climb in my car and finally see if it can really do 168mph like the manufacturer claimed all those years ago. Of course with my luck it'll be gridlock everywhere...

I'd probably have sex until I died.

I've always wondered how many of us would finally express and show who we really are inside. The best and the worst of ourselves finally revealed...many whom you thought to be good turning not to be, and many who you thought of as bad surprising you. In life the smallest details reveal our true self, but during dramatic events this shield is impossible to keep up for most.

Reminds me of the Joker when he was in the cell,

 

I agree with Happy Camper, still can't find my own I think I would wait calmly til it happened. I feeling like saying I wanna be piloting a jet but it sounds hollow...

Keep in mind, end of the world means no atmosphere, no food, no water. Better savor that vault cause it will be your casket.

I've got to stop looking at the left-hand-column "current discussions" at the bottom of the Head-Fi home page.  This topic would seemingly have nothing to do with the theme of the site, and it is strange in terms of a general "community-building" thread.  Still, it reminded me of a scene from a science fiction classic I read 30+ years ago:

 

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lucifer's_Hammer

 

A Los Angeles County sheriff deputy is evacuating the jail facility, since the end of the world is basically at hand, and he opens the cell doors for some inmates, telling them to "get out" and then, with others, he takes his shotgun and appoints himself judge, jury, and well, you know.  We tend to discount the darker side of human nature, but I wouldn't want to deal with an amplified case of "road rage" with a motorist (possibly armed) trying to get home to say goodbye to his family.

 

What a cheerful way to begin my day.  Maybe I'd fire up the computer audio system one last time and listen to R.E.M. sing "It's the End of the World as We Know It (and I Feel Fine)."

Go to the place where it was supposed to hit, and punch the asteroid in the face for being a total jerk.
