If the world was about to end, would you try to stay calm or would you start to panic?

I think it would be a relief.

If it's inevitable, why worry?
14 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Saturday 1/19/08 - 10:45:49 PM EST (GMT-5)
Well, I'm sure I would TRY and stay calm, but I'd probably fail miserably.

I would stay calm. I would walk calmly to a store, get and do whatever i wanted, eat as much as I wanted, and do something crazy like BASE jumping

Be calm, there's nothing we can do anyway.

Knowing I'd go to Heaven I'd be the calmest person in the world

I doubt it.

I'd like to say calm, but I probably will be a heap of hysterics.

haha. i think there would be less panicking and more destruction. people would be committing crimes and doing sh.t they wouldn't normally do since the world was ending, and in a few moments absolutely nobody will have any recollection of all the chaos that went on.

I don't think people would be committing crimes actually. I think they would be spending time with loved ones.

You're far too optimistic.

But what would be the point in stealing a tv, or killing someone?
The world would be ending in a few hours, why not spend it with friends/family.

I think you're forgetting that people aren't rational, especially if they think the world is going to end.

14 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Tuesday 2/26/08 - 12:03:25 AM EST (GMT-5)
That is true.
People panic too easily.
14 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Tuesday 2/26/08 - 3:17:01 AM EST (GMT-5)
What good would it do to panic?
14 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Saturday 3/1/08 - 6:29:10 PM EST (GMT-5)
I would think panic but usually in a crisis I get calm so I don't know
14 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Saturday 3/1/08 - 6:42:01 PM EST (GMT-5)
Everyone is so full of sh-t...

No one is going to sit around calmly waiting for the world to end
14 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Saturday 3/1/08 - 8:17:53 PM EST (GMT-5)
Ahahaha, what kind of question is this?
I'd be flipping the hell out.
And trying to call everyone and hug my lover.

This whole conversation made me laugh. My first thought when I saw this question was looting.
Of course I'd still spend time with my family. I only live a few blocks away from them.

ok- if your home was gonna die, youll die a painfull way, and everyone would be dead youd stay calm?
13 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Monday 6/2/08 - 3:59:34 PM EST (GMT-5)
theres no reason to stay calm. THE DAMN WORLD IS GONNA SPLODE!
13 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Saturday 7/12/08 - 12:03:34 AM EST (GMT-5)
I like how this was worded: "would you like to stay calm" Not "would you stay calm". Sure we would want to stay calm but are we actually going to, probably not.
13 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Saturday 7/12/08 - 12:08:00 AM EST (GMT-5)
how long do I have and who am I near? I've always wanted to have "we're about to die a painful, certain death sex." so hot.
