I watched an episode of Torchwood: Miracle Day last night. I thought the idea that no one could die was positively intriguing! Not to mention a tad bit disturbing...
So as we watched the episode my friend asked the question:
"What would you do if you couldn't die?"
So I sat there and thought for a few long moments. What was surprising to me is that nothing came to mind right away... I'm not a daredevil by nature so bungee jumping, hang gliding and the such just doesn't interest me all too much. But what I did think of is what most people would think about doing.
I thought it would be fun to post this to my fellow Hubbers and see what your thoughts are on this topic. If you could do anything without the fear factor of dying, what would that be? Would you jump out of a plane and fly? Would you run with the bulls? I can see where the possibilities could be endless. I am hoping for some really great answers here, folks! Don't let me down. Let's have fun with this!
And just for the record... I finally decided at the end of the show what I would do.
I would go very slowly mad, and I would have lots of time to do it
I haven't watched any of this series Torchwood yet, hubby likes to save them so we record and burn to dvd, once the dvd is full we watch. We had some problems with recordings so have had to wait for re-transmittions so I probably wont get to see till like christmas!
The premise of Torchwood is whacked. I get immortal, but some of that stuff is too far fetched, even to be entertaining.
But, if I was immortal I'd probably start violin lessons. Yes, I realize it would make life hell on earth for those around me for the first few hundred years, but I honestly believe I'd eventually get the hang of it.
I don't watch Torchwood. Is it a new series? To answer your question... like you, I also couldn't think right away of things to do IF I were immortal. Ok, I'd thought about it... I will continue writing here on Hubpages to see if my hubscore will ever reach 100. That should take care of the first hundred years, at least. Do you think I should go out more?
I would climb a mountain. I'm scared to death of falling off one, so if I knew I couldn't die I would probably give it a go. Until I come to that conclusion however....there just ain't NO WAY! Maybe walk across the ocean on the ocean floor too? Hmmmmmm.......
I've read about many different theories about death and what happens. It is the main question that is in the back of everyone's mind. It's very difficult to picture it or to question the point of existence. The fact...
