    Default Shut up or shut down?

    Okay, so here's the scenario: Your doctor tells you that you have rare disease that will take a year to heal. You will function otherwise normally, but you will not be able to speak for a year. On the other hand, he also says he could put you in the freezer, which will also take a year and heal the rare disease, but you won't age (and it's perfectly safe?).

    So, if you were given a choice, would you shut up for a year, or shut down for a year?

    Shut up. To many spoken words floating around helplessly anyway.
    And... hail the WRITTEN word!
    I'd hate to know I missed so many events.

    .......... I don't think he would mind much.

    But I'd shut up. I mean I don't talk much anyways. Mostly because if I need to say something I just txt it to who ever needs to know. Ahaha. Not only that but so much goes on the the world in so little time.

    I would shut up. I have very good handwriting, so why not just write for a year? Oh, and are you able to speak? I mean, if you say something, then you spontaneously combust? Or are you completely unable to move your mouth? Either way, I would write.

    Antlers make me horny. And Green is my favorite color. And spontaneous human combustion is Eco friendly.

    I would shut up, though I might start taking with me something that makes a lot of noice... for the off chance that I fall down and can't get up, or something like that.

    But yeah, spending one year in silence will finally push me to learn sign language and will make me a pro in charades.

    Being completely quiet for a year isn't bad at all. I'll go with that.

    Difficult question.

    I am actually a very talkative person. I'm in love with the sound of my own voice talking.

    On the other hand, I have nobody to talk to. And I'd kill to sleep for a year straight.

    I would shut down for a year just to keep myself one year younger.

    I'd probably shut up. I really am not one for many words anyways, and being in that freezer would be such a boring waste of my precious lifetime.

    Keep in mind that you do not age while you are frozen. If you were going to die in 2065 if you chose shut up, you would die in 2066 if you chose shut down. So it isn't so much a lost year, as it is a delayed year.

    I would have to shut down. I talk a LOT. If I am not constantly talking I think I would overflow.

    One extra year of life won't postpone getting hit by that bus, and I cannot be shut up. I must annoy, deny, shoo off, laugh at, insult, demotivate and reject people to defend myself. Also, given the ridiculous conditions of this rare condition, it is hard to resist telling a doctor to "stfu noob lol!".
    So get ready for a flaming-hot, green stud.

    On the other hand, being missing for a year will lead you to be in different circumstances for the rest of your life, so you might be on another street from that bus that might hit you had you chosen to shut up.

    Random events are random. You might be hit by lightning the day they thaw you and you may live to be 100 if you shut up, or the other way around.

    I can't talk anyways so shut up. Lol jk. I'm not the talkative type anyways so probably shut up.

    But if the doctor tells me he can keep me in that freezer for 20-30 years I would definitely change my mind and pick the freezer.

    I can't magine that to be safe.

    I'd shut up. It's okay with me if I have no voice for a year, because then I'd be able to see my doggy and stuff.

    But the delay would change my life. I would rather live in continuos motin whether it be sick or otherwise than to be away from friends , dfamily for a year. Who knows in that year my mother could die and i would have missed that all together. i wouldn't have been able to say good bye; greive with the rest of my family nothing...

    The probabilities are roughly the same. Suppose you get out of the freezer, and just like any warm-blooded American that's been isolated from their habitat for a year, you desire to eat a hamburger for the flag's sake. And you start eating junkfood for a change, or you slouch when you eat, or you quit jogging, or pick up habits that will recede your lifespan. Or suppose you don't choose an extra year; you cells will atrophy faster by a small ratio, and you're prone to get more diseases; but what if in the meanwhile you get a/few blood transfusion(s), use advanced cosmetics, or eat healthy? You'll more likeley gain a year or two.
    Or eventually, one day, as you said, you'll go pole vaulting in a lightning storm, and the outcome will be the same in both cases.

    My same justification applies when the doctors say a cigarette will take away a day from your life. I could be half way through my life any time, why stop?

    Shutting down for a year does not seem like a wise decision at this point in my life. I feel like "wow, I'm 20 and I still haven't done that?" about too many things in my life already. Plus I'd fall out of touch with all of my friends, and it would create an awkward situation at work (how odd would that look on a resume?) and schooling options, and I'd miss out on a lot of personal experiences, and these are supposed to be the best years of my life after all... really, I don't think it would work out.

    The only positive benefit I could reap from being shut down is, if I put all of my money into some kind of one-year investment and collect when I get out. But considering that I don't really have that much money in total, I have a feeling that the amount of money I'd collect wouldn't amount to much more than I could make back in a week or two of work. I can't really think of anything about the world at large that might benefit from skipping a year, either.

    Besides, not being able to talk for a year wouldn't be that bad. It'd be as much fun as it would be a hindrance. Using the phone would be difficult - maybe I could handle calls at home with MacinTalk, but I'd probably wind up with an unlimited data plan to handle most communication (other than AIM and E-mail and Facebook). I'd also learn Morse code, but I'd probably also have to keep cards on me that teach Morse code to people who don't know it, which is probably a lot of people (e.g. me).

    From what The Simpsons has taught me, the secret is to carry around a tiny chalkboard, and that can help clear up any communication errors in person. I almost always have a pen and paper on hand, anyway. Who knows, maybe people will find me more charming over the course of that year as well, just like in that episode. That would be quite the backhanded compliment from the universe.
    Get some exercise this summer and raise money to fight disease. Find a free charity walk in your area:
    AIDS Walk | Walk to Defeat ALS | Walk MS | Making Strides Against Breast Cancer
    Light The Night for Leukemia & Lymphona | Great Strides for Cystic Fibrosis

    Noooo, that will just get you anally inspected against your will, like in that episode with that fat woman, in nip/tuck Season 5.
    But my main point that it's not worth choosing either. I, for one, welcome our flaming, horned and green overlords.
