Interesting thought...

Just thought this would be a great thing to post as I am playing on Facebook instead of folding laundry and eating potato chips instead of fixing dinner...
Imagine that you had won the following prize in a contest:

Each morning your bank would deposit $86,400.00 in your private account for your use...

However, this prize has rules, just as any game has certain rules.
The first set of rules would be:
Everything that you didn't spend during each day would be taken away from you. You may not simply transfer money into some other account. You may only spend it.
Each morning upon awakening, the bank opens yo......ur account with another $86,400.00 for that day.
The second set of rules:
The bank can end the game without warning; at any time it can say, its over, the game is over!
It can close the account and you will not receive a new one.
What would you personally do?
You would buy anything and everything you wanted, right?
Not only for yourself, but for all people you love, right?
Even for people you don't know, because you couldn't possibly spend it all on yourself, right?
You would try to spend every cent, and use it all, right?
Each of us is in possession of such a magical bank. We just can't seem to see it.
Each morning we awaken to receive 86,400 seconds as a gift of life, and when we go to sleep at night, any remaining time is NOT credited to us. What we haven't lived up that day is forever lost.
Yesterday is forever gone.
Each morning the account is refilled, but the bank can dissolve your account at any time....WITHOUT WARNING.
SO, what will YOU do with your 86,400 seconds?


  1. Well, I just wasted 86 seconds of my 86,000 seconds reading this. And another 30 seconds posting this.

  2. Well you obviously learned NOTHING!

  3. The time starts going faster the older you are getting. It is like trying to approach the speed of light.
