You've just been told by the 3rd doctor in 3 days, that after thorough , & exhaustive testing you now have 31 to 33 days of life left, & then you will die, quickly, & painlessly. How would you spend your time if you were walking in this particular set of shoes?

First, I'd spend a couple days making some videos to leave behind for the kids.  Then I'd take my six year old son away for a week or so together, just the two of us, go camping with him out west maybe.
Then I would spend a week or so with just my wife, probably down in the Keys or possibly Hawaii.
Then I would take the whole family and do something for a few days.
And finally, when there were just a couple days left, I would go out west, alone, and start hiking into the desert.  Hopefully, I would die at night, under the stars.

Lately, it would be nice if this happened to me.

Life sucks.

No kids, so my wife & I (and my brother & sister if they wanted to go) would probably pack up and go spend most of the time at Cape Hatteras fishing. If/when I have a chance to spend my remaining time, that's where I want to be.

The rest of the time would be spent taking care of all the legal issues so my wife wouldn't have to worry about them later.

I've secretly always wanted to rob a bank.

I would give some of my things to close friends.
Spend some time alone with my son,&wife on a road trip looking at America. The last week I would do all the risky things I never had  the time,or inclination to do, like skydiving, bungee jumping. Base jumping, & the last few days I would say good bye to my friends & family, then fight a grizzly bear with a bowie knife, & have it filmed to make money for my family. If I lived, I would Souix the doctors for the misdiagnosis, & all the stupid stuff I did based on it, because hey it's their responsability.[;D]
I also would spend some time shooting all the ammo I have through all my weapons. & shoot some kangeroos,hyenas,baboons,& vultures if I had the cash to get to where they are.

Grab my off-road vehicle, a rifle and a dog, round up all the cute plump little town girls from 14 to 24, and ...

I'd wait 30 days then go wander around in the desert near Tucson and have my family sue the government for 3 million dollars when I died.

I'd spend as much of it as necessary to track down the one person that I want to make sure dies before I do, and if he's still alive do whatever it takes to ensure that he goes first.

I'd definately be drinking the good stuff for those 30 days, no more Keystone Light and Skoal Vodka for me.

I'd sit in my underwear with my curtains drawn while I gorge myself on Cheetos and monitor the AR15.com General Discussion forums.

In other words, I would change nothing. [:D]

If you took Diane FineSwine and Chunky Schumer with you, I promise that we would petition the Vatican to make you a saint!

Well I would start by walking out on my job, take the family and my cuban cigar collection to someplace nice where we can spend some time together, make some videos for the kids to watch when they get older and then with a day or 2 left, perhaps go hand out some justice to some people I feel need it. Might as well make my death worthwhile.
