What if scientist found out that a year from now an asteroid was going to completely destroy the earth, and that there was no way to stop and we are all doomed. Would you rather they told the whole world that they only had a year to live or just keep it secret and have everyone die unaware.

Secret probably. I'd totally panic till it hit.
There would be a massive increase in crimes like theft, rape, murder etc. so it would probably be for the best if people were kept in the dark till it was here.

You'd be able to see the astroid days before it hit with the naked eye, let alone months before to the thousands that look into the night sky with telescopes.

It would be the only instance in humankind where all the nations are united.


OT: We'd get Goku to Kamehame-ha it out of the way.

The username. Who wants to be known as the poop kid? That's like the kid that poops in the urinal at school and everybody finds out about it.

This, this right here is the correct option.

I like this.

But, we should have it in a giant stadium, and then we should arrange a giant hotbox within the stadium. We record the concert and send it into space via rocket. Then aliens will find it and make sitcoms on how retarded humans are.

I personally would prefer to know, but letting the masses know would result in all kinds of hell breaking loose, and I don't want that. I would like to spend my last days in peace.

Secret. The world would be complete insanity and anarchy. We would probably kill off most of the earth before the asteroid did.

I'd let the world know, just for that one guy who's taking shit from his boss while he sits in his small cubicle hating his life, or the kid who's working graveyard at McDonald's.

Tell everyone. I would have much better chances with the ladies because of the "eh, why not, the world is ending" effect. It's science.

Keep it secret.

Letting people know the world is ending results in mass hysteria and pandemonium.

You make it sound like we'd be powerless. What about that one movie where a team of astronauts lands on an asteroid and sets off a nuke? Go all Bruce Willis on that thing. I think it'd actually be possible.

Keep it a secret.

I personally think that an astroid apocalypse is just about the WORST way to die, dying in a zombie apocalypse is much more honorable and entertaining.

I'm willing to bet a solution to either change the course of the asteroid or destroy it could be figured out before we got hit.

so tell us i guess?

OT: I dunno I would kinda want to know. But then again, crime would go up surely.
However if you didn't know until like moment before it hit. you'd be like "Well, I sure lived my life well " If you really didnt do anything significant in your life its like... too bad.
Apparently this is a signature

Yessir it is

People are so concerned with these 'end of the world' scenarios, but it really doesn't matter at all. If you fall down the stairs and bonk your head on the end table, that's the end of your world.
