RE: 3 days till the end.
Ok so most people will agree that its best not to let the public know....maybe a few would let on.

A year before the event you are still in power and the same trusted and reknowned scientist and his huge multinational team find some alarming results in a connection between tumours/cancer in people through wi/fi and mobile phones......the numbers are small maybe 0.5% of the world population is proven to be affected but for some reason the growth is expected to shoot up to an estimated 15% in 30-40 years time. (this is all hypothetical of course)

Do you announce the news to the public???

For no matter how much I use these symbols, to describe symptoms of my existence.
You are your own emphasis.
So I say nothing.

Ha ha.

Im just giving some pretty random scenarios to see peoples opinions on what must be pretty tough decisions......to see how far people may possibly go "for the greater good"

RE: 3 days till the end.
In scenario 2, I would indeed warn the public. Hopefully people would stop using cell phones, but they wouldn't. At least I would be able to sleep at night.

Scenario 1 had no real solution, so it was all about how to get to the end game. I think most of us wouldn't want to know when we are going to die, and I think that if we all knew the world would end tomorrow bad things would happen.
Scenario 2 could actually be benefited by the public being aware.

I like Zat-light. It's less ... argumentative.

RE: 3 days till the end.
Through the research the cure to something else could arise or possibly even the cure to cell phone cancer this saving people the pain in the meantime.
Or at the very least it could serve as a distraction for the impending disaster. Plus I hate cell phones so I'd at least likely see a reduction in asshole cell users.

RE: 3 days till the end.
Humans don't want me in charge. I'd let them die =p
I'm on Observer's side, anything to thin this oversized population.

I'm not a non believer, I believe in the possibility of anything. I just don't let the actuality of something be determined by a 3rd party.
