If you could press a button that stops the universe forever, would you press it?

You must press or not press the button, so it is a yes or no situation.

If you mean end all life as we know it.
NO. Heck no. Not my choice. I don't deserve to end everything and everyone else's life. To be responsible for the end of the universe? I'd have to be a pretty special person to do it. And I'm not. I'm just one in over six billion humans. And I'm one organism in Billions of Billions of living creatures.

I pushed that button as a kid. It worked! We are still in the 80s. George Bush is still president. We are still at war with Iraq. Music is all vacuum and electronics.

Now I wish I hadn't.

No the universe is too interesting to destroy. Now if the button destroyed all the bad, unpleasant, cruel, evil people on this planet than probably yes even if I don't feel I don't really have the right to make that kind of decision.

No, it wouldn't be fair on the people that actually enjoy life.

If I could draw a circle around myself and stop that from spinning then yes, but not for anyone else.

It is now drifting backwards... We are heading back into the 60s.

No, of course not. That would be rather selfish, wouldn't it? Plus then you'd miss the good stuff (and there is good stuff)

If you mean blow up the Universe. Definitely no. Gees how much energy would that take anyway?
If you mean freeze the universe in it's current state (remembering it's expanding all the time). Also No. As I look for ward to seeing Haley's Comet spin past every 90 years or so, and I also enjoy the gravitational effects that a spinning planet and universe provides. Well, most of the time.
If you mean stop time... Well more hours in the day would come in handy, but a day that lasted indefinitely would start to annoy me after a while.
But I'll vote No, because even if I wanted to jump off the planet, I wouldn't wish it on anyone else.

More like the 50s if television is anything to go by. There seems to be a growing trend in tv shows looking back at the 50s through rose tinted glasses whether it's regarding education, parenting, discipline, television or playing in general.

I´d press the button only to stop...and turn back in time...I would change so so so many things!!! Oh, If everyone had the chance, for once in lifetime, to go back in time and change a thing, just one thing!!
What would you change??
I don´t think I could choose just one....

Personally, no. I missed Halleys comet by being six at the time and I fully intend to catch it in 2061. also, I suspect such a button might not have the desired effect. Here is Nicolas Gurewitch's take on the matter.
