If this were the last day....

People are always offering up that trite crap that we should live each day as if it were the last. This sounds like a great and fluffy hallmark idea until you actually think about it. If you knew with absolute certainty that you would fail to be alive tommorrow, what would you really do with the time? I'd imagine most people would be franticly calling friends and relatives and have the psychological profile of a fruitcake. It's hard to imagine that many would actually be having a day they would want to remember.

Applying the entire situation to myself, I'm not sure I'd do anything all that interesting either. While it's nice to believe that this might actually spur me on to initiate a bloody rampage where I would mow down the seeds of humanity like sheep, I'm pretty sure laziness and apathy would stay my hand. I mean, it's one thing if the hoards of humanity were willing to make a housecall so I could sit in a comfy chair and mow them down with a machine gun with the tv on, but I'm not sure it's worth it if I have to go out there and find them while lugging my hardware. Just think about how much those ammo belts and clips must weigh after a while.

Oh well.
