Writer's Block: Going down  
You're on a crashing plane and your partner is fast asleep. Would you wake her/him up to say 'I love you' one last time or let her/him die in her/his sleep?

I'm pretty much a jerk, so not only would I wake Seanie up, I'd probably do it not so that I could say "I love you" so much as scream "PUMPKIN WE'RE GONNA DIE WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH*SPLAT*"  Poor guy.  He really deserves better.

In a flipped scenario, I think I would prefer to be awake when I die; there's something creepy to me about falling asleep and never waking up.  As horrible as death from a plane crash would be, I think I'd rather experience it and be certain of death than just drift away.  Does that make sense?  Probably not.  Like most Americans, I try not to think about death unless absolutely necessary, and sometimes not even then.

Yeah, I don't like to think about this either.

I was actually wondering if I would have the composure to wake you up and try wake you to get you to get in that safety position that that mythbusters episode proved could plausibly save your life. Then I was wondering if I had the composure to TRY to get you in that position, if you'd have the composure to actually do it.
