What would you wear . . .

. . . to the end of the world? And I don't mean the other end, I mean the FINAL end. Watched "Knowing," a fairly new Nicholas Cage movie, last night. To cut to the chase, Nick and another single parent find themselves running around like headless chickens trying to save their children from THE END. It seems a very pesky solar flare is about to destroy the earth's ozone layer and will "kill every living thing" on the planet. Nick and the woman seem to think they can hunker down in some local cave and maybe have a chance at survival. The children, a boy and girl, each about ten years old, just kind of follow along like little zombie kids. Here's the trailer:

So here's my question: following the scorching of the earth by the giant solar flare, what are these people to do when they finally deem it safe to leave the cave? My best scenario, which I've thought about for a really long time, is they have to break into the local Walgreen's. They may be able to find some Coke and chocolate bars that haven't been destroyed. They could play a couple of games, read a magazine and try on different colors of nail polish. When they've had enough, they could climb over the remains of the pharmacist and find enough drugs to bring about their own peaceful ending.

To me, it would make more sense to heed the warnings by partying large. How about you? Leave a comment, tell me what you would do if all life on earth would end tomorrow. And I'll email the uplifting end of the movie to you, in my own words, of course.

Don't tell me the end, unless you think I shouldn't watch it? It's in my queue.

I agree with you, I would want to party really large (as well as at least one other thing that I won't post on here). I wouldn't want to be one of the only few left.

Although I think most of the food I eat would survive.

Well I tend to think along the same lines as you but then I was wondering would THE END be worse than having to watch the coverage of the Michael Jackson Death Investigation over and over and over again? hmmmm

I'm going to say my end is similar to yours except I'm going to go with COSTCO for my finale. I think I might take a little road trip first. You know, just to make sure the weather isn't just cool and balmy up in Canada or something.

Like Heather said, don't tell me the ending, this looks like it will be good.

I think that partying and sex would be in order. Also, you could try things you never thought you would do, that is if you could find these things.

I don't know if you received my other comments, but definitely party, try a few new drinks if you can find any booze. Experiment with different makeups and hair colors and find the tackiest of them all,along with a tacky t-shirt to say good bye in.
