    You have 20 years left to live

    with absolute certainty, you KNOW you have 20 years left to live.

    how do you plan on living out the rest of your years?

    what changes are you going to make to your life right now, in the short-term?

    bonus question: does it make a difference at all if you know that all of humanity will die with you?

    Well... it puts an end to my career as an extreme base jumper. Though admittedly, even if I knew I'd live until my time was up, I wouldn't go that route until I had a better handle on how well I was going to heal. I'm not sure how much wealth it takes to offset the inconvenience of 19 years as a pile of mush, but I'm pretty sure I'd never get it.
    Most of time, when people ask why something terrible happened, they don't realize they are looking for someone to blame.

    Am I the only one with knowledge of mankind's fall?

    It'd be like the worst waiting room ever. No way I make it.

    if it were just me, that wouldn't change anything. if it were all of humanity, that'd change everything. society would go into chaos and collapse.

    but what would you do? that's what i'm getting at.

    would you drop out of your school? would you change your career? would you say "fuck it" with your 9 - 5 job? would you finally travel the world? would you work harder on finding your life partner? would you commit seriously to getting fit? would you be kinder to people, more honest? would you wake up every day remembering that your actual purpose in life is X? would you get the fuck up out of your seat right now and ask yourself "why the fuck am i wasting so much time?"








    i may have overestimated everybody's love of life here... but i thought about this and immediately got up and took a frenzied shower (which doesn't mean anything; it's just what i did). like, if i'm gonna die in 20 years i wanna achieve goals that are important to me and enjoy as much as possible the time i have left. i specified 20 years cuz it's a more "real" scenario. it's entirely possible. i mean it's likely we (reading this) won't all be here in 20 years.
