If someone knows that an upcoming meal is to be their last, the specific food choices would appear to be the least of their problems.

Execution, the final days of a dreadful illness, or a psychic understanding of catastrophe in the making would likely be involved.

And yet, countless people on the internet thoroughly enjoyed discussing what they'd like to eat for their last meal in a recent Reddit thread.

Some were dedications to home-cooking and fond memories. Some showed commitment to out and out decadence. And others were sneaky ways to cheat death.

MunchkinsOG asked, "What would your last meal be and why?"

Parting Surprise

"Raw popcorn kernels. They're gonna have a blast when they cremate me." -- Fordawinman

"Going out with a bang" -- shiny-spleen

Living It Up

"Super spicy pizza - I won't have to worry about acid reflux." -- Jedi_Fisherman

"Yes! Get all the spice and none of the regrets." -- MunchkinsOG

Seasonal Chaos

"A Mcrib and a Shamrock Shake. What are the odds that a Mcrib and a Shamrock Shake as re gonna be out at the same time?" -- TheUrbanSaint

"Guess they'll just have to postpone the execution until they get both at the same time!" -- mart1373

"Just request one Mcflurry from every McDonald's in the world. Guaranteed at least half the machines will be down meaning you won't die" -- SithLordScoobyDooku

Buying Some Time

"I'd ask for the world's rarest truffle. Then while they were searching for it, I'd tunnel my way to freedom."

"Of course, then I'd miss eating the world's rarest truffle."

-- foofan22

A High Carb Fountain of Youth 

"The Never Ending Pasta Bowl (olive garden)." -- arachnidtree

"taps head Can't die if your last meal is never-ending" -- justabill71

"But you have to spend the rest of your life only eating Olive Garden pasta... so you're alive, but at what cost?" -- Yourstruly0

Fancy Finale

"Lobster cause I want to know what it tastes like but I'm not rich enough to get it. Plus happy cake day." -- TheIceCreamCones

"Fun bit of history, they used to feed lobster to the prisoners in Boston because it was so plentiful that it wasn't even considered a delicacy. How the times have changed!" -- PlaneShenaniganz

Going Out Stuffed

"Enough sushi to put me on a good coma before I get the juice." -- FreeSirius

"I love sushi but I'm allergic, every time I eat more than 80 pieces I barf." -- chesterSteihl69

"My only issue is bad sushi is really bad while good sushi is heavenly and I don't trust the sushi chef skills of a prison cook." -- mousicle

Full Circle 

"Tortilla with black whole beans, with a side of crema, and pan fried platano. To remind me of my homeland one last time." -- interceptor101

"Mmmm i'm Salvadorian and this is one of my favorites. The Platanos Fritos hit different." -- Wisegangsta7

"Not hundurean, salvadoran here but hey, can totally relate to that my dude" -- Omira_Motaki

Just a Solid Meal 

"Nice big ribeye, baked potato with butter and sour cream, asparagus, grilled, or sautéed in butter, lobster tail and/or a good crab or lobster bisque..."

"...all washed down with a quality beer, like a Heady Topper, or Pliny the Elder."

-- justabill71

You know, I've seen countless "no texting while driving campaigns" and I agree with the premise. I think it is dangerous not to have your eyes on the road. That's how accidents happen. With that said, don't car manufacturers think it's counterintuitive to include touchscreens instead of knobs or dials in new cars these days? You have to take your eyes off the road to adjust anything. I think it's hazardous, especially if you happen to be driving in inclement weather.

After Redditor TheTenthDimension asked the online community, "What's your best example of 'Whoever designed this must not use their own product'?" people shared some suggestions.

If only all the things we excelled at were also the very things we loved to do most. But sadly, that is not the way it goes.

Instead, some horrible force of the universe made you way better at, say, sewing the holes of pants than playing guitar. The universe can be a spiteful, fickle jerk.

In a perfect world, family has your back harder than anyone else.

In the real world, it can sometimes be your family that cuts deeper than anyone else. Intentional or not, the people closest to you have the ability to seriously super suck.

No, you're not the only one who has dealt with a mom who just, for the life of themselves, can't NOT be critical. Or a dad who just always seemed chronically underwhelmed by you.

Society is an odd conundrum when you attempt to wrap your head around it. This phenomena typically occurs whenever you witness a new trend or share experience and everyone seems to go along with it. Only much later, when you think about it with a bit of critical thinking, do you notice something might be off.

Going against society can be strained, difficult, like pulling back a sticker that's been on way too long, however sometimes it's necessary to get rid of what we probably shouldn't be so welcoming of.
