Pretend the title is so. What now?

Are you going to change any routines you have?
Are you going to go out and 'start living'? (if what you're doing now isn't 'living', then why are you doing it?)
Are you going to be remembered?
Are you going to try to be remembered?
Are you going to pray?
Are you going to kill yourself?

Quantity of experience over quality? The reverse?

What are you going to do with your death sentence.

@mister kitten,
Holy **** I am going die tomorrow?

Since I don't love anybody (this is so sad, lol), there is nobody to talk to. That's fine - no strings attached.

Um I will definitely stop studying my chemistry. The rest of my day would be trying to get laid Smile

24 hours. You can bring a clock to countdown. Would you bring a clock?

Is there a difference between what you think you would do and whatyou would actually do?

I'm going to learn how to say "i repent" in all the languages so if there are any surprises, I'll be prepared... sorta like that guy in The Mummy.

This is an interesting question. I think a lot of people would be so busy freaking out about their impending death and taking care of those pesky "last minute details" that their time would slip away and be gone before they actually lived those last few moments.

As far as any off us know, we could die tomorrow.

I think that's why it's important to appreciate every moment we can.

And watch lots of sunsets.

@Pepijn Sweep,
If I would somehow know that I will certainly (or even merely likely) die tomorrow, I would notify the people I am close to, thank each for everything I feel they should be thanked for (starting with the person most important to me), then apologize to any I feel I should still apologize to, and then make any other comments or wishes. I would then decide on any final wishes I may have, and finally fix up some minor things that will make my death easier for others: make my computer less cryptic is all that comes to mind. Once all that is done, I would spend the rest of the time with a close friend or two as a good-bye party, but I wouldn't do anything I wouldn't do normally: probably no alcohol, even.

You say you would not have a drink but you may find you need one.
But in saying this if you have come to terms with it you would prefer a clear head. You would want to be aware of every last second if you weren't in total terror or denial.
I think i would prefer a clear a head, but then again i always wanted to try peyote so might just for the heck, magic and experience of it give it a go.

So basically you'd spend your last few hours on earth doing chores. Why would you care if your computer is cryptic? You'll be dead!

Because by spending a few hours doing chores I could make things much easier for those around me. I know my computer will go to a certain person, but that using it as it is would prove impossible for pretty much anyone but me: thus, I'd write up some instructions, change keyboard layout to qwerty, reset passwords to something simple, etc. The same logic is for apologizing and thanking: I do not want to make anyone who I thought well of to have to guess it.
