What would you do if you were told you had inoperable brain cancer?

Question by Warren D: What would you do if you were told you had inoperable brain cancer?
Of course this question is inspired by the diagnosis for Massachusetts Senator Edward M. Kennedy.

Since I am at an age where such a cancer would likely be a death sentence for me, this disease hits home.

I would get my affairs in order and then I would spend whatever time I have left writing everything I could think of–my memories, my cares, my concerns.

I would try to get closer to God. I would find the books I’ve always wanted to read and didn’t have time and read them. I would stay busy. I would try to do some traveling. I would like to see the Great Wall of China, the Taj Mahal, and the Pyramids.

I would try to find everyone I loved so I could personally tell them I loved them. I would forgive all my enemies. I would try to get at least one flight on a supersonic airplane. I would take at least one cruise. I would try to find someone who would let me drive a train.

I would try to spend my last days as much like a little kid as possible.
I know I said what I’D do…

My question was, what would YOU do?

And the serious answers have been pretty good.
Wow, you guys have some great answers. I hope all of us live so long that they’ll say about us “He (she) lived a great and full life, and I’ll miss ’em until we meet again in heaven.” And, in the words of the great Irish toast, “May we be in heaven an hour before the devil knows we’ve died.”

Darn it, some of us SHOULD live forever. Too bad we can’t.

Q&A: If you were on a sinking ship?

Question by Sam-I-Am: If you were on a sinking ship?
What would be the one thing you’d carry around with you in constant fear?

I had this wacked dream this morning that I was on this holiday cruise with all my friends, the daily activities included bull riding in the sea and tea partys with fancy china.

One of the bulls got out the water and was hella mad, he ran around knocking into people and walls etc, everyone was gathered in this massive room, the the ship began filling with water and thick mud.

So began our quest to escape, only I couldnt concentrate because I was clutching a polka dot china cup under my arm.

Very weird. If only I was more resourceful, I should try Lucid Dreaming.
Seriously, lifeboats and jackets are out the question, youre pretty much going to die. Sorry.

Question by Congi: around what time period were the tigres and euphrates rivers used? also indus and ganges? huang he &yangtze ?

Best answer:

Answer by loveanonymoty
I am familiar with the tigres and euphrates river of mesopotamia. During the neolithic period, men discovered how to domesticate animals and cultivate food and in turn, civilization occurred. Permanent constructions of settlements usually occur near rivers. And also during this period the discovery of using copper alloy in conjuction with tin created a stronger metal, bronze. So I would confidently say during the late neolithic period.
