question for everyone: why is this hypothetical scenario not worth thinking about?

@bp22, your situation is more relevant to euthanasia, which is really a completely different debate. here you wont be pulling the plug yourself or anything of that sort.. the kind of death in the question may even be sudden like an accident or instant heart attack...

anyway, since ur answer is related to a real-life situation/experience, i guess ur answer is an unequivocal NO...

^cjoy, u havent given ur answer yet...

@marcelianox, ur mom for real? i guess moms have a different point of view on this whole thing...

mga moms ng PMT kaya anong masasabi...

          ^ "sige anak kunin mo na yan" well ,that is me ha.I was asked the same question before kung sino ang sasagipin kung asawa or nanay mo, my reply went like this" if i were the mom,i will ask my son to save his wife,i am old na kasi by that time at dun rin ang patutunguhan ko.

^agree.. but as a daughter, i don't think i would take any amount of money kapalit ng 1 day na makasama ko ang mom ko.

If I were your momma, I'd tell you to take it. What could possibly happen to me tomorrow that would be more exciting than you having 5M? 9 months naman ang gawaan ng apo :D

nope it takes only 30-60minutes. for most men, 3-10minutes lang ata.  :D

@vicces, tindi mo! heheehe gender detective ka talaga!!!! :)
leading question
process of elimination :D

@samsam, ngayon lang kita nakita dito ha, thanks for sharing ur thoughts. :)
as a mom (a dying mother in this case), my answer is yes.. but as a daughter, no.
see... why not as a daughter? is it because of guilt? pano if u dont live with ur mom naman, you/she will sleep the 8 hours off, so u only have 16hrs left... pupuntahan mo pa sya, etc...

If I were your momma, I'd tell you to take it. What could possibly happen to me tomorrow that would be more exciting than you having 5M? 9 months naman ang gawaan ng apo :D
exactly cjoy. napaka-iksi ng 1 araw, 1/3 of it will be spent sleeping, and kung OFW ka, di mo na rin mapupuntahan ung nanay mo para sulitin ang 1 araw na yun.. tapos pag sinabi mo sa kanya ung dilemma mo baka batukan ka pa, "di ako nagpakahirap ng ganito para magpalaki ng tanga?! take it, take it!"

i think this hypo problem can also apply here:
naalala ko yung dati kong officemate, namatay ang nanay nya sa probinsya. mga kapatid nya dun lahat walang trabaho at pagtatanim lang ang ikinabubuhay.. nangutang at nagpadala sya ng P20k pampalibing, pero di na sya umuwi doon for the burial. sobrang ingrato at at tigas ng mukha naman nito sabi ko sa sarili ko. sa unang tingin -- praktikal, pero ingrato. but if you really think about it, it was the rational thing to do. uuwi sya dun ung 20k nya mababawasan ng 10k dahil sa pamasahe. poproblemahin pa nila pano mabubuo ung pampalibing.  

@vicces, tindi mo! heheehe gender detective ka talaga!!!! :)
oist GS wag ka ganyan baka maniwala sila hehe...
(me wonders what freefront would say about all this... nakikibasa yun malamang.. ayaw lang magparamdam, tinitikis ako loln...  :D )

i only said ^^that kasi nga moms are usually very practical (wintan is a good example right there; si mlangseth kaya? homeschoolmomma? etc). so, if u know ur mom as a very practical person, u can assume that she will understand that if you did accept this offer, its really for practical reasons not because you want to get rid of her. yet as the child, your heart will probably never get over the guilt and u will be torturing yourself the rest of your life. meanwhile ur mom would probably be sitting pretty up there, very happy and proud that you did what she wants u to do in that case -- choose urself over her...

this is really confusing huh?

again, just to oversimplify things,

practical vs sentimental/emotional

we'd like to know which side of you will prevail in this extremely unlikely scenario...

I think the answer depends on a number of factors....Parent-child relationship, financial status & values in life.
