...as it inevitably will, what would you do? Try to survive as long as possible? Wait for the impending doom? This situation will really happen if humans are still living on earth when the sun comes to the end of its life. This is an apocolypse scenario that is worth thinking about.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sun#Life_cycle

The Sun does not have enough mass to explode as a supernova. Instead, in about 5 billion years, it will enter a red giant phase, its outer layers expanding as the hydrogen fuel in the core is consumed and the core contracts and heats up. Helium fusion will begin when the core temperature reaches around 100 million K and will produce carbon, entering the asymptotic giant branch phase.[29]

Earth's fate is precarious. As a red giant, the Sun will have a maximum radius beyond the Earth's current orbit, 1 AU (1.5×1011 m), 250 times the present radius of the Sun.[94] However, by the time it is an asymptotic giant branch star, the Sun will have lost roughly 30% of its present mass due to a stellar wind, so the orbits of the planets will move outward. If it were only for this, Earth would probably be spared, but new research suggests that Earth will be swallowed by the Sun owing to tidal interactions.[94] Even if Earth would escape incineration in the Sun, still all its water will be boiled away and most of its atmosphere would escape into space.

And this as well. Solar expansion comprehension fail.

I'm surprised nobody said they'd do some weed or hallucinogenic drugs and enjoy the show.

I'll be surprised if we make it five hundred more years, let alone five billion...

If it happened in our lifetime? Burn.
It didn't take long to realise
The safest place was not her arms, but her eyes
Where she can't see you
For her gaze, it blisters;
Grey skin to cinders

In about 5 billion years, it will enter a red giant phase

5 billion years is quite a long time. In fact, life on earth hasn't been around for 5 billion years, seems kind of unlikely that mankind will still be prancing about when the sun engulfs (or fries) the earth.

Wouldn't be at all surprised if there were humans living far away from earth by this point (if they're still around by this point). Six billion years is a long time... >_>

If it would happen right now, I'd **** any woman that's a 9/10 I'd find.

I'd have 2 minutes to get to the nearest club (achievable) and 6 minutes to find a 9/10 and have sex with her.

And about 40 seconds to spare
