Now that the Mayan calendar/end of the world hype is over there is a question I would like for you to ponder. I heard this being discussed on the radio this morning and it made me think of my own response.
You have 60 minutes left before the world ends. You will die, everyone else will die there is no escaping. The question becomes how will you spend those last 60 minutes?
One person mentioned they would go on a looting spree, but if 60 minutes is all you have left, then what will looting do? The items you take are not going to be useful, nor will you have a lot of time to enjoy them.
Now I know many people will answer saying they would spend that 60 minutes with their loved ones. I understand that thinking, it will be the last you see them, at least in this life, so you want to enjoy the final minutes.
Some will say they will get drunk, which I guess is fine, but really do you want to spend the last minutes on earth with a bottle(s)?
Some will say they would head to a church. synagog or some other house of worship and pray, which is also very understandable. People want to make peace with their creator and prepare themselves spiritually for the end.
Since you only have 60 minutes it’s not like you can fly anywhere to see someone, you really can’t drive a long distance either. Your options are probably limited to what is around you at that moment in time.
My response, I would gather my family, assuming we are all in the same location, and head to one of the mountains and try to get as high up the mountain as I could. Then just watch and wait for the end. 60 minutes does not leave you a lot of time to get far. Traffic would probably slow us down.
It is fun to think about what we might do, but truth be told when the sh*t hits the fan, how we really react maybe and probably will be a lot different.
Back to the original question, what would you do if you only have 60 minutes left before the world ends? I would love to read your thoughts.
