THE HAUNTINGS![rebelmouse-image 18355823 is_animated_gif=
Life, we hope is eternal. We all know we're going to die eventually but that knowledge is quelled by the hope that there is 'something' after. But what exactly? And if there is 'something,' what do we do with all that time? I know... haunt the hell out of everybody!!
Redditor EpicSpooder asked the currently living After you die, you enter a "spectator mode" and get to watch the rest of another person's life play out from their perspective. Who do you choose and why? Answer carefully... "they're watching!"
BETTER THAN A DVR.
So if I'm in hell, then. I'd pick someone who watches a lot of the shows I like so I don't miss out.
YES! CILLIAN MURPHY! THAT IS ALL![rebelmouse-image 18355824 is_animated_gif=
My last words will be, "start watching Peaky Blinders at season 2 episode 3, or else!"
NO PASSPORT REQUIRED.[rebelmouse-image 18355709 is_animated_gif=
I think someone who travels a lot, so I can see parts of the world I never got to while I was living.
Or someone who will one day travel in space. That would be amazing.
GRANDMA LOVES YOU.[rebelmouse-image 18355825 is_animated_gif=
My granddaughter. I was 67 when she was born, so I'm not going to see much of her adult life, and I'd love to know what kind of person she turns out to be, and if she gets to have grandchildren of her own.
MOM![rebelmouse-image 18355826 is_animated_gif=
My sons, because I'd love to see him live his life to the fullest even when I'm gone.
AVENGERS ARE ESSENTIAL![rebelmouse-image 18979291 is_animated_gif=
A Marvel fan. Cause damn if I'm missing "Infinity War" a month before it's release.
LET'S PLAY "THE DATING GAME."[rebelmouse-image 18979292 is_animated_gif=
The real angle would be getting all your friends together at the old folks home and agreeing on setting up a hobby by agreeing to all spectate the same dude.
TO EACH THEIR OWN.[rebelmouse-image 18979293 is_animated_gif=
I choose Kim Jong-un. My reasoning is quite simple instead of just watching a family member or a random junky I'll be watching the leader of North Korea.
LET'S PLAY THE VEGAS ODDS.[rebelmouse-image 18346879 is_animated_gif=
I'd pick a random newborn baby and then make bets on how it's going to turn out.
Like - will be a bully or bullied? Likes eggs and bacon or cereal for breakfast?
Keep a tally of how much I get right.
You know, to entertain myself.
Maybe once I get good at being a ghost, I might try to scare him/her now and again. Just to make sure they know what's up.
Not like a guardian angel, more like that creepy aunt that constantly smokes and when your parents aren't there tells you to go and buy her a pack of smokes and a bottle of gin. Keep the change.
ALWAYS CHOSE A 'DANGEROUS LIASON.'[rebelmouse-image 18979294 is_animated_gif=
John Malkovich, obviously.
WELL YOU'D NEVER BE BORED.[rebelmouse-image 18347585 is_animated_gif=
Assuming I die right at this instant, Trump, politics aside, is one of the most interesting public figures currently. There is so much up in the air in terms of his term in office - anything could happen. I just want to see where it goes.
NEVER LET GO JACK![rebelmouse-image 18979295 is_animated_gif=
My SO. He's had a tough life; lost his parents as a teenager, married young to a girl who milked him of all the money he got from his parents estate and then cheated on him. His siblings are all either dead or in jail, and most recently has been struggling with crippling anxiety. I would just want to make sure he would be okay without me.
BFFS ARE FOREVER!![rebelmouse-image 18979296 is_animated_gif=
My best friend Austin. We've both struggled in life and I really look forward to seeing him succeed. No afterlife is going to stop me from that.
I SEE YOU GIRL![rebelmouse-image 18979297 is_animated_gif=
One of my friends, we're all pretty close, young and have the same interests so it would be like watching how my life would play out.
SIT IN WITH THE BAND.[rebelmouse-image 18979299 is_animated_gif=
If I can also play guitar while I watch id choose a band so I can play with them without all the stress of being watched and nervous of messing up in front of thousands of people. Also I'd be nice to play along with people instead of some backing track while I cry silently alone in my room.
STICK WITH THE CLASSICS![rebelmouse-image 18979300 is_animated_gif=
Steven Spielberg. He has always fascinated me and I would love to see how he lives and see some future cult classics in the making.
DASVIDANIYA!!![rebelmouse-image 18979301 is_animated_gif=
Vladimir Putin. Do I get to understand Russian?
PICK ELLEN!![rebelmouse-image 18979302 is_animated_gif=
Is it First or third person spectating? Also what are the rule? Can I only see what they see or can I hear/smell/feel/etc?
If it's first person with access to all the senses (but not muscle/mind control). Someone who adventures a lot and travels the world. That way I get some semblance to the life I wanted but haven't yet attained.
OK NOW LET'S GET IN 'FORMATION!'[rebelmouse-image 18979303 is_animated_gif=
Beyoncé. Show me that rich, lavish life Queen Bey.
I WILL HAVE MY REVENGE![rebelmouse-image 18979304 is_animated_gif=
Whoever killed me, like in fortnite.
GO STRAIGHT TO THE TOP!!![rebelmouse-image 18350898 is_animated_gif=
Being an emergency responder is a high-stress job.
It's a career with long, laborious hours.
There is always a hint of danger. And death is always around the corner.
So we as a society could try to help these people out and not put ourselves in unnecessary danger.
These workers and the world already has enough trouble without my stupid.

If it's not a true emergency dial 311. Please.
I hated science classes.
As soon as I could I ran.
But it follows me.
Because science can be downright disturbing.
That's why I blocked out so many of the details.
"What's the scariest thing that science has proven real?"
As if knowledge isn't scary enough, let's her more...

Now I can never UNKNOW about prions. Perfect.

"Gamma ray bursts. No warning, no escape, no defense, no survivors."

"That hearing is the last sense to leave, when dying."
Well that is the antithesis of comfort. Life is so fun.
Ever since Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope opened on May 25, 1977, a devoted fanbase developed.
And that fanbase has opinions.
Lots and lots of opinions.
Redditor Ebo8000 wanted to know:
"What is your most controversial take on Star Wars?"
"LASERS LOCK DOORS. LASERS OPEN DOORS. LASERS KNOW WHAT YOU WANT THE DOOR TO DO."
"…you shoot the bloody door panel!"
"Why put the door control RIGHT NEXT to the door? Put the door control system in a breaker box."
"Shoot the breaker box, now the whole floor is closed until someone can figure out what happened."
"Almost look like those doors just exist as dramatic elements..."
"Not sure if controversial but they need to take the franchise and yeet it 200 years in the future."
Design Fail? No!
"The Death Stars weren't badly designed they were just badly managed."
"All in all it sounds like a fairly effective defence when you consider the design philosophy."
"The entire universe has a cool factor that outweighs the atrocious storytelling."
"Bro imagine the following movies, but if they were in Star Wars universe."
"Top Gun - But it's you know, Wedge or something"
"Ford versus Ferrari - But it's podracing or swoop racing"
"He was never a character. He was a cool helmet."
"He was a cool jetpack too."
Time for the weather...
"Han is actually older than Obi-Wan due to Time Dilation."
"Time dilation in a universe where every planet and moon has the same gravity and atmosphere?"
"And just 1 biome."
"That way they only need one Weather Channel per planet."
"And over to Klaatu for the Tatooine weather report. Klaatu?"
"It's still sunny."
These are the droids we're looking for.
"Star Wars is actually the life story of C-3PO—think about it."
Fan is short for fanatic.
"Fans ruined the whole franchise."
So, did your controversial Star Wars opinion make the list?
People clarified what actually terrified them most about death
"I don't fear being dead. I fear dying."
"Yeah, that's usually the issue. It's why that quote doesn't mean much, to a lot of people."
Concept Of Loss
People provided an analogy to articulate what ceasing to exist must feel like.
It's About Time
Consciousness Is Life
Like Being Under
"That is very true, but for me, that's the closest amalgamation of what it probably feels like."
When In Deep Sleep
"Yeah in contrast to sleep where you can actually feel like time has passed when you wake up."
Think Line Between Death And Slumber
"As CGPGrey puts it, your bed might very well be a suicide machine."
People opened up about their insecurities around the concept of death.
Fear Of What Comes Next
The Circle Of Death
"But you won’t be able to. You just won’t!"
When Faith Fails You
"what do you mean I'm going to hell?! I was a good person and attended church regularly!"
It was sweet and beautifully done. The 1962 episode was titled, "Nothing in the Dark."
That's how I imagine it to be.
