I’d go to Las Vegas. It’s a one-hour flight. Go and enjoy, spend whatever. I’d charge up the credit cards. Go out with a bang.

I’d say let’s screw the “no drinking on the beach” law! Let’s have a big party. We’ll start a fire on the beach and all go out in flames!

We gather up the biggest damn orgy we can find! We have an adult party. No consequences, right? I say we start putting up flyers.

Eat a good meal and have sex all night long. It would be a nice, big ravioli dinner with antipasto. Then I’d make my last phone calls to my children and my family.

I’d do him [points to husband]. Literally. We’d go home and lock ourselves in the apartment with a bottle of whiskey. If I had 24 hours left to live, that’s what I’d do. Hi, Mom!

I would encourage the entire planet to go "clothing optional", coat themselves in vegetable oil, get all "squishy" with each other, drink lots of wine, and when the solar flare happens, watch everyone go POOF!

Why not gas up an old space shuttle, make like an atom and split?
