14 People Talk About What They’d Do if the World Was Ending in 24 Hours

It’s the end of the world as we know it!

And I feel fine!

Do you remember that song…or are you a little young for that one?

Either way, we want to hear about what you’d do if you knew the world was gonna end in 24 hours.

Tell us in the comments below but first check out what folks on AskReddit had to say about this.


1. Thank you.

“Thank the universe for my human experience that it granted me.

We can only hope that the next existence after this, wherever it may be, will be peaceful and rewarding.

The good news is, not a d**n thing is anyone’s problem anymore.”

2. Sit back and watch.

“Listen to music and watch as the world ends.

Giant meteor? I’m watching it crash.

Falling moon? Still watching it fall.”

3. Going out the right way.

“Get my family all together to hug and hold hands.

Look at old pictures.

Distract the kids the best we can.”

4. This is it.

“Grab my wife and our dog and have the best 24 hour date of our lives.

Give her a kiss at 23 hours and 59 seconds and thank her for a wonderful life.

Couldn’t think of a better way to go out.”

5. Why not?

“Kiss my best friend. I’ve been in love and have wanted to do it for so long.

If we’re both gonna be dead in 24 hours, why not?”

6. Now or never.

“Tell my parents I’m gay.

They can kick me out, beat me up, whatever, and it won’t really matter.

Then I’d get on Grindr and lose my virginity.”

7. Make amends.

“Apologize for any wrongdoings I might have done in my lifetime, tell my mother and sister how much I love them, give as much affection and comfort to my cat as possible, kiss my boyfriend passionately and tell him that I’ll always love him even after we die, lie down and quietly let a few tears escape as I hold my cat and my boyfriend, and then go down like a lady.”

8. Gonna be epic!

“I imagine a bunch of bands will put together one massive, final show.

So find out where that’s gonna be, get all the food/water/stuff  I’ll need, and head there.”

9. Fingers crossed.

“I’ll just trust that somewhere behind the scenes Jack Bauer is going to sort it out.

He has a good track record for this sort of thing.”

10. What movie?

“Have fun with my family.

Make and eat some delicious food together, have a little dance party, maybe watch a movie we all enjoy, play some games.”

11. Got it!

“Get Paid.

Get Laid.


12. One last trip.

“Take my kids to see dinosaur bones at the local museum.

He’s wanted to see them for two years now, but hasn’t been able to because of Covid.”

13. Peaceful.

“Go on the longest drive of my life, alone. I’ve always been one to enjoy the silence and peace of being alone.

And I feel like, If the world were truly ending, I’d get in my car and drive in a direction for as long as I could. To reflect, to imagine, and to appreciate the world and all its glory.”

14. Check!

“Gin and tonic? Check.

Ahoy on YouTube continously? Check.

Pack of smokes? Check.

Cats? Double check. (My three legged boy loves sitting with me and watching Youtube, my big boy likes sitting by my head and watching.)

Call my mom, dad, and siblings. Quick conversation with each.

Lunchables for dinner.

Go to sleep and let it happen.”
