    Another Nickelback song that has had a massive impact on my life. It's food for thought. What would you do if today was your last day? What if tomorrow were too late? How could you impact someone else's life at the expense of your own. Would you spend it selfishly? Would your last moments be filled with self gratification? Or will you rise above the human condition and save a life, or perhaps push someone to an unreachable potential and beyond their means? It's a question of unquestionable importance. Our time on this Earth is so short. Regardless of belief, there is pain and suffering everywhere. If you knew you were going to die in the next 24 hours, could you willing turn your back on the needy, the poor, or the people who just aren't as gifted or blessed as you were?

    Personally I could not. So why not live every day like it could be your last? Why not every day take a step back from the hustle and bustle of life and give a little like you'll never have another chance. You don't have to do anything drastic, just give. That piece of furniture you don't want? Take that to Goodwill or another donation place. Food still good after a spring cleaning? Take it to a food bank where it will be put to good use. Would you apologize for an old wrong? Forgive someone who needs it?

    So I ask you GBAtemp, how would you live your last day?

    I would probably sit at my desk and mess around on the internet while drinking beer.

    I'll quote my reply from a similar topic we had a while back.

    And depending on what I would die of after the day is up, I would donate all my organs.


    (inb4 Nickelback shitstorm).

    nice song.
    OT: dunno. If there's something I have to do, I'll finish them all, or not. Depends on my mood. It doesn't matter anyway since I'll die tomorrow.
    Oh wait, maybe I'll find a way so I won't die.

    Probably tweet it out and update my GBATemp status then run around in circles screaming for 4hours. Then I don't know. Never really done any bad stuff.

    Nickelback? If I was dragged to one of their concerts, I'd want more than just a nickel back. *rimshot*

    Of course, it would figure that my last day would be a Monday.

    it's hard to ignore if you knew what's going to happen with your future.

    however since I don't know
    probably I'll just do my daily activity just like usual
    which is sitting in front of computer while receive money from someone else.

    but well.. probably writing a will or something to everyone that I love.

    If Nickleback is the music that has an impact on my life, I'd want it to be my last day.

    With that said, I certainly wouldn't be going to work. I may go find my last boss, though, especially if I knew the moment I'd die. I'd tell him it was all his fault, then die.....maybe in an embarrassing position.

    Or, I'd probably just try to fuck my girlfriend as many times as I could before I go.

    I would try to find a girl who'd be willing to have sex with me, and I'd have sex the rest of the day while listening to music I like really loud.

    Nickelback is brilliant. You're entitled to your opinion, even if it's wrong.

    So, why do you dislike Nickelback?
    Don't give me some bullshit answer like "They suck" or similar answers.

    They are a terrible band who write terrible middle of the road music. They have no redeeming quality.

    They do however enjoy a lot of success. Like Coldplay. Yet they are utter shit. Like Coldplay.

    Tl;dr: Nickleback and Coldplay are shit.

    Their powerchord progressions are trite (though what else can you do with powerchords?) and lyrics cliche. They had a passable debut album yet every album since has sounded exactly the same. The singer has long fallen into the trap that it seems every other radio-rock singer of the past ten years has...the longing for and failure to sound like Eddie Vedder. And they're from Canada.


    On topic:
    If today was my last day, I would have drank one less beer last night so I could have two left for tonight. And I would have worn clean underwear.
