I’ve been thinking a lot about life and death lately – specifically how much time I likely have left with certain family members, and what to do with that knowledge.
I haven’t yet come to any huge realizations, but this scenario definitely sparked my interest:
So, what would Reddit do with its last hour on earth? Predictably, the answers are all over the place.
1. The usual
Hang out on my couch with all my pets i guess. The usual
Panic for an hour then die
3. Look it up
Google “one hour to live scam or legit?”
4. Enjoy the view
Load the kids into the car, drive out to my parents’ place, give them all hugs and kisses, grab one of their whiskey bottles, walk out back to the lake, sit on the pier, and spend the last 10-15 minutes drinking and enjoying the view.
Smile as my last hour will be spent doing absolutely nothing with my life
Like the other 28 years
An hour huh? That’s enough time for a drink
7. Drop ’em
Well I sure as h**l won’t be spending it wearing pants.
8. Just vibes
Say goodbye to friends and family, make a quick will, then just vibe with them.
If it’s natural causes I’d go to the hospital so they can harvest my organs fresh and I’d call my family on the way to say goodbye unless the 1 hour is a huge asteroid or something globally cataclysmic I’d try to get a good view.

Assuming I’m at home when I find out…Facetime my family and tell them I love them and talk about the good times we’ve had and tell them that they’ve made my life amazing.
Text my friends and let them know how much they mean to me and thank them for their friendship.
Hug my dogs and give them scratches.
Sit on my balcony with my girl in my arms, dogs beside me, and let death take me.
11. Go full Cage
steal the Declaration of Independence.
Hug all my immediate family.
Make videos to send to all the people I love.
I just lost someone and I’d kill for more voicemails and videos of them to replay when I miss them.
I don’t wanna forget how they looked or sounded.
13. Pupper time
Snuggle with my dog.
14. Just drive
Get in my car and drive as long as I can and as fast as I can.
I’m talking 5 star wanted level; I want to make national news.
And right before my timer goes off, I want to drive straight off a cliff and put on the most spectacular car crash anyone’s ever seen.
15. Find your peace
Tell nobody, grab my earbuds, and find somewhere nice outside to sit and draw in my sketchbook until I’m done.
16. Leave a message
Record messages to my daughters for all of their major events in their life they haven’t gotten to yet, graduations, weddings, births, that I won’t get a chance to be there for.
I would tell them how proud of them I am, and how they need to always look out for they mom.
I would tell my wife I love her, and my dogs they are the best boys/girls.
17. Trip out
Eat a handful of shrooms, hug and kiss the kids and family and go away from this place tripping to the next dimension.
18. Play the odds
Drive to my former best friend’s house, tell her I’m sorry for the s**t I said to her.
En route, call my closest friend, say bye, love him.
Then spend the rest of the time on the phone with my parents while driving. Get my apology out, tell her I love her, then die.
Maybe throw in a ,”I accept Jesus Christ as my lord and savior, and that he died for all of my sins.” just to be safe.
19. The last memory
The woman I love is about a half hour away right now. I would drive to her and order a drink to share with her. I would remind her that she is my everything, my world, and that I’ll always be there for her, even when I’m not around.
I’d kiss her gently, listen to that little laugh she always does when I tell her something sweet, and let my life end with her as my last memory.
20. But really…
I have four young daughters.
I also have a 5 million dollar life insurance policy. I would talk to them and tell them I am really sorry I won’t be there for the rest of their lives but that I love them very much and I hope they will be taken care of without me being there.
That was a little too honest for me to write out and is making me emotional
21. Yours and mine
Ill just play minecraft until i die
Get really high, with my parents and wish them a final good by.
Before I Spontaneously human combust
23. Never too late
Learn to play the piano
24. Love you, mom
I’m spending time with my Mother. Last year she got diagnosed with stage 4 Pancreatic cancer. She stopped chemo last week.
Her case of PC is very aggressive and they don’t expect her to stick around very long.
I feel super blessed to be able to make some memories with her today, as so many haven’t been able to similar with their loved ones in this last year.
Rewatch the josh fight
26. Skip it
If I knew there was an hour left , I could die of shock!
This is likely to happen
27. My Chemical Romance
Say goodbye to my fiancée, grab a few Arizona green teas from the corner store, then drive to my favorite place and smoke cigarettes and drink the teas in my car while blasting my music.
Try to time MCR’s “Helena” so the last words I ever hear are “So long, and Goodnight”
28. Light ’em up
Turn my phone to record and tell the story of my life in one hour.
I will also be smoking some weed like everyone else
29. Think of the kitty
Pet my cat, and tell her that she can eat me when I’m gone
30. Beat the system
Drink 5 hour energy
I think that last guy is really onto something.
But what about you? What would you do with one hour left on the clock?
