The nuclear option

Gene Weingarten on

Leave all the toilet seats up.

Eat a pound each of cherries, figs and strawberries. (The bomb will get you before the squirts do.)

See if autoerotic asphyxiation works for you.

No reason not to head to the zoo and have the most exotic barbecue in all of human history.

Change into a comfortable but attractive outfit in case it's what you end up having to wear forever in the afterlife, or as a ghost.

Use up all the hot water. Then go to every room in the house and turn on the lights. Then turn on an iron, leave it on the ironing board, and walk out the door.
