    How would you spend your remaining time on earth?

    If the world were to end approximately 5 years from the day you read this question, how would you spend your remaining time on earth?

    Interesting question.  But if I knew this for sure, I'd definitely start by cashing out my retirement!

    The idea would be to support doing what I'd want to be doing--which would be good work and enjoying (and supporting) friends and family.

    I don't think that the value of good work is dependent upon its permanence, hence I think it would still be worth doing.  (Though I'd prefer to actually finish projects before 'the End.')  And being with others whom we care about--well, what do I really need say on that score?

    After all, we're all under sentence of death from the moment of our conception--even if we tend not to do a great job of getting used to the idea.  This would just be a more definite version of the same thing.

    hmmm well ... If I only had 5 years left I'd make sure I spent my time wisely.

    Ofcourse I'd make Haij, which is a Muslim migration to the Kaa'ba in the Saudi Arabia. I mean if I'm gonna die... might as well make my truce with the big guy up there smile

    I'd also spend as much time as possible with my family, because to me family is the most important thing in anyone's life. I'd make sure everyone who is important to me knows just how much they mean to me.

    In my final year, I would devote my entire existence to Palestine. I refuse to die before Palestinians get atleast some of the rights they are entitled to but have been so vemenintly denied.

    and ofc I would abduct Noah Puckerman from Glee .. That boy is FINEEE!!! =P

    So basically .. God, Family, and helping my people - the Arabs (althought I'm Egyptian, I see myself as an Arab first .. unity is important) oh and Noah big_smile

    Well, I wouldn't bother too much about what I'd eat and drink, I'd spend the last days praying hard for forgiveness of my sins

    I would keep doing the same things i am doing now which is  helping people as much as i can, developing myself everyday, thanking God for  my life and praising him for his gift of love towards me and his son Jesus,

    Live every moment like it counted (because it would) Spend more time with family. I would not worry about the future very much.

    This might be quite liberating for many people - in otherwords no need to worry if you have enough saved for retirement, no need to worry about growing old etc. So I would spend the time with my family and my dogs and have as great a time as possible!

    Who knows that life will end tomorrow. Whether it ends after 5 years or 50 years. One must be true honest and should live a happy and healthy life.

    5 years left...that's quite a time. I will continue working for my family since; food and shelter is still needed. My spare time would be spent wisely by  volunteering instead of partying. Gotta fuel up on my karma points smile

    I would share the gospel of Jesus Christ with as many people as I could before it was too late.  If they die without Him, they will spend eternity in Hell.  I accepted Christ as my Saviour when I was 7.  Will you accept Him today, for we do not know how much longer we will have!!

    I will maintain the same pace of my life and will give some more emphasis on my charitable services to the community not to earn credits from God but to be happy until last minute

    Exploration of what human's life is all about.

    Asking questions like:

    1. Why are we born on earth?
    2. What is our purpose in life?
    3. What are we suppose to learn?
    4. What objectives are we to achieve?
    ...and many more questions as why we are not living in the spiritual realm.

    Maybe it is a test we are here to go through and understand the Good & Evil before returning to enlightenment.

    I would spend the time worrying about telling others about the long-term, after life.  I would tell others about Jesus and His death on the cross for our sins, so we could have eternal life.  Five years is nothing.  I would not be worrying about a car payment, a house payment.  I might very well prefer to take a live-in volunteer position at a homeless shelter.  People who are as low in life as they can be are excellent targets for discussing the Gift Jesus Christ has to offer.

    Praying and thinking of God. There is no succor other than God for all the beings in the world. Some realize it, some do not realize. This is the only difference.

    Carry on just the same way, because there is nothing one can do to change it. By it I mean the "The End".

    Wow, like if a rogue planet were spotted by astronomers, headed straight for Earth? Even if all of our atomic arsenals were sent to a large planet could such an object be diverted enough from its path. Is that the kind of inevitability you're talking about?

    I would spend every possible moment attempting to understand God's love and giving my love to others. I would hope to achieve full Enlightenment (spiritual awakening).

    I would live as I do now. I am extremely happy with my life and everyone involved in it.
    Would I change for better memories?  What good would more memories do with the world ending? The people I love would be going also. With me. Together.
    What happier thought could there be at the end othe world?
