Random Asked Question

Today's question comes the fine folks at Miracle Scripts, Inc.  If it's a bug free script, it's a Miracle.

If you were given an envelope with the the time and date of your death inside, would you open it?

 

Sure, why not?

Good afternoon. It's an Englishman's favourite day: National Tea Day! I'm raising a mug of Yorkshire's finest in a toast to you fine threadpeople, while munching on a chocolate Digestive. (And yes, I'm even quirking my little finger, in the way wot posh people do.)

Yay tea! "Earl Grey, hot" *she speaks into the replicator. It is indeed a day to celebrate. The bird people rescued the eaglet DC4 after it got its leg stuck in the nest. These two are moving around and exploring a lot more than their siblings did last year at this age. Hopefully after an all-clear check up it's returned to the nest without any issues.

Absolutely. It would be nice to know how much time I had to get my affairs in order. However, if it included the circumstances of my death, I'm not sure I'd open it then. I don't think I'd want to know that I get hit by a bus or something like that.

I would take the envelope, but I don't think I'd open it right away.  I am sure I would, at some point, but not today.  

However, like Talligurl, I'd want to know the origin of the information.  

Retreating to the realm of the probable for the moment, if you receive an envelope revealing the date and time of your demise, the originator is most likely the Arkansas Department of Correction.

While Arkansas takes the lead for April, It looks like Ohio's actually the hot spot for the year...

OK and TX better watch their backs.

And, because I love charts...

I log in now and then to change clothes, but that timespan has been something like every 3-6 months over the past 5-6 years.  I actually logged in the other evening though and spent a few hours going through my inventory.  I wanted to take the new 'complexity' issue into account, but tons of my stuff is really old and therefore really high on the complexity scale.  I can't even count the number of outfits I tossed on that aspect alone, plus tons more that just obviously looked ancient. 

I'm not going fancy tonight, but I did find a pretty dress to wear - mostly because while I detest dresses in RL, I like wearing them in SL.

Understood! I love to dress in finery inworld, but in meatspace I usually go out wearing gym shorts & a novelty tee year-round. 

Things are generally a tad on the informal side in Arizona. :)

You can always try hand puppets and pantomime. 

Pantomime .. ? Or is that ... like ... to remove the trousers from one of those silent street performers in the white makeup?
