if there were 2 people left on earth, you being one, the other being a stranger, what would you do to survive? assume that that you were left with all of the tools available to you were provided to you for a long time.

also, what would you do with your time, in general?

I’d put that fuxxxx to work!
Go kill something I’m hungry!
Collect some wood!
Hey build a fire!
What would you do without me! 🙂

Wouldn’t do a thing. Just lie down and watch the stars go by. I’d prefer absolute solitude till the end of my days and so run away before the other person even realize I’m around.

spookichick 5/26/2019 - 7:11 am

the key point is that you and only you would have the power to make that choice. xox

It’s kinda strange asking people who want to die, what they would do to survive..
but the concept you’ve put forth almost gives the person a reason to live. You’ve basically given them a different life. One they might care to exist in.
Not me though. For my reasons for depression sums down to loneliness. And although I’d obviously become close to the person I’m with, the odds we’d becone great friends is unlikely. Its like pulling out a card from a bucket of 7 billion other cards.. our mindsets are probably billions of miles apart. No common interests.
Interesting to think about though

yes, asking people to assume that they would survive in this hypothetical situation is challenging, especially if depression is working against you. i can relate. loneliness, for me , is palpable. however, taking risks for me at this point in my life, are essential to my ability survive. remember that the world that i put forth would have a pharmacy with a variety of psych meds, and maybe the stranger would be a great therapist! xox

Probably annoy the other person until they kill me xD

spookichick 5/26/2019 - 7:30 am

self destructive behaviour has been a challenge since i was 15 years of age. i get it. it’s a work in progress, but i really want to stop myself from letting it get the best of me. xox

I’d live. The only reason I want to die is because man has driven me crazy. If it was just me and another person I’d relax. Enjoy life. If the person annoyed me id kill them. What are they gonna do, put me in jail for murder. Lol

spookichick 5/26/2019 - 7:03 am

LOL! if i were the stranger in that scenario, i would try my BEST not to annoy you! xoxo

Assuming that everyone but the two of us vanished, or went somewhere out of sight /smell range, and they departed and left everything behind and intact, I would be driving fine cars and flying every airplane I was capable of while living in the finest accommodations. Assuming this other person was an agreeable sort who spoke English, we would be doing a ton of grieving together.

spookichick 5/26/2019 - 7:36 am

WOW,! those activities sound thrilling to me! can i be your “stranger”? lol i think that your choices are very cool! grieving the loss of your family would possibly be helpful in the company of an ” agreeable sort”! xox

It an amazing thing I like to think about sometimes. Keeping things going, procuring what two need, learning all about how to live using the wits and abilities of just two people, and oh by the way, hoping the two would be able to relate and work cooperatively all without the vast amount live human input we use from a good sized army of other humans every day.
It would be a full time job to stay healthy and comfortable.

Hey Spooki, you must be doing a bit better, that’s good! To answer your question it would totally depend on if I liked the other person. I either like someone or I don’t. If I didn’t like the other person in this scenario things are gonna get problematic. If I liked them I suppose just conversing could pass the time. Then we could use the aforementioned tools to ensure our mutual survival. But it all depends on the like word.

spookichick 5/26/2019 - 7:00 am

thank you so much for acknowledging my “doing a bit better”. you are accurate in your assessment. i am indeed continuing to fight to stay alive. i understand that that “the like word” is significant to your survival in the “new beginning world concept ” that i presented in my post. i do think that you have the strength to confront the challenge of getting to know the “stranger” in that scenario,. that in itself can be daunting. i think that if i were the “stranger” , that we would like each other…even though we have never met in person, i like YOU. xox

rivets 5/25/2019 - 1:14 pm

Depends on who the other person is. Are they a cranky old man? Bah, I’ll go live in the mountains.

spookichick 5/26/2019 - 7:26 am

can i come with you? i love the mountains. if it didn’t work out, we could always go our separate ways. if it did work out, we could have a blast.

spookichick – I am starting to see the genius of your question put to an audience of people who usually prefer to plan their demise. Imaging a world we would try to survive in is amazing . I only typed about two sentences outlining four activities, but I have thought of many more. In fact, irl, I am setting up my present surroundings to be as ideal as they can be and that is in the face of horrific memories I am still processing with the help of my capable therapist.

spookichick 5/26/2019 - 6:46 am

i am so pleased that you are continuing to work so hard on with your therapist to make your situation livable, and “ideal as they can be.”. you are strong, brave, and using your intellect to face the memories that are haunting you. being kind to yourself is important too; you need breaks to reinforce your strength, and resolve. you are a truly a warrior with a big heart. xoxox
