((You might notice a theme in these topics:P))

Say the end of the world was nigh and there was nothing that can be done about it, would you want to be warned? Do you reckon the world should be told?

No. There would be to much carnage before the world ended. Just let everyone go about their business until the end.

Oh that's fantastic!

The world is going to be completely annihilated, and you're worried about the streets being 'a bit messy'. Laughing







You weren't being serious were you ? Confused



Personally...

Remember when the Large Hard On Collider was going to suck the planet into oblivion? something to do with Hard Ons colliding ( you may spot a theme in my responses ) - we all got told weeks in advance about that.

Yeah course i'd want to be told, I could go out with a bang then not a whisper.





T.S Eliot, i'm so very sorry...

Knowing is no good. Pretend some one is aiming a gun at the back of your head and they pull the trigger before you finish reading this sentence.

You would prefer they step around to your side/front and alert you that you cease to exist in a split second?

I wouldn't want to know. I'd rather just get on with everyday life until the end.

I have to agree with you there. I don't see what benefit it would bring if everyone where to know.

I would love to know when the world was coming to an end. There is pessimists and optimists . I would like to have closure on a lot of things.
1) Spend all the money I had saved for a rainy day .
2) Say goodby to all my friends and wish them well.
3) Do the things that I was putting off , Like have sex with a beautiful hooker and not worry about dieing from a disease.
4)Travel to places that I wanted to go to.
I could go on and on. Some people are like sheep and do not think. They do not care about what happens tomorrow. I do.

This is not a Theory , it is a known fact that Yellowstone park is going to erupt and cause world devastation. You do not have to believe me ,just go and research it yourself .
they do not know the exact time it will erupt , but I bet that they are close to knowing when,. have a nice life

It it is imminent then I'd rather not know as I wouldn't really be able to do much to prepare, but if we had enough warning to allow me to fulfil my final wished then I would like to know. Then I could say my goodbyes, stop doing those long projects that will never get finished and see everything I wanted to see and die a lot happier than I would otherwise, feeling that I hadn't wasted my final days.

This thread continues to bring a smile to my face Smile

The world is going to end for all known life upon it, and you're wishing your friends 'well'.

It doesn't matter... ...In fact, in a couple of minutes they wont even be matter Very Happy - and you're wishing them well Very Happy

I can just imagine how you would say goodbye 'Go ahead make my apocalypse' ?

Welcome to the forums btw! Very Happy

You can do that anyway surely? - i'm sure she ( or he ! ) would be very willing to use protection.

What is stopping you from doing this anyway? - The world for you is going to end in about 60 odd years time, make sure you do all those things before then Wink

There's another hypothetical scenario which involves a volcanic eruption on the Canary Islands which would cause a mega sized tidal wave and wipe out most of the Eastern coast of the US, again this is a 'when' not 'if' due to the geology of the Canary Islands.

Here's the BBC article on it

http://www.bbc.co.uk/science/horizon/2000/mega_tsunami.shtml

At most, Eastern America will have a hour or so to do something about it. Hmm, how fitting for this thread.

Eastern Americans, would you like to know you have 1 hour left to live?

After thinking about it,,,, nope, I don't want to know. It would be like sitting on death row awaiting execution. Too much stress.
