...If you found a ticking time bomb with two minutes left on the clock what would you do? How would you deal with the bomb?

Get Hulk to swallow the bomb.

I would grab the bomb and run to any of the parking lots that's close to my place and throw it wherever there's no civilians there.

Screw the cars, at least civilians won't be harmed

I'd panic and throw it. Immediately. Then I'd run like a coward without making any kind of heroic effort and live with that guilt on my conscience for the rest of my life.

Depends where I am. If it's at some suburban place, I'd scream that there's a bomb, and then get the hell outta there.

If it was at a really populated place, I'd probably do the same, actually.

I would just probably throw it to the sea/lake/river if there is one nearby and run as fast and as far as possible, telling people about the bomb along the way.

Yeah, same here. I'm too much of a chicken to do the captain america thing and cover it with myself. :\

That's not being "chicken", that's called having a brain.

It depends on the type, really. If it's the sort of thing that's easily thrown and I'm in an open, non-busy place then obviously I'll try get it to a safer place to blow (though I have to say I'd be a tad worried about even handling it), but in a city or other place where there's nowhere to put it? Run like hell and (I suppose) scream about the fact that there's a bomb in the place. Though you know, the stampedes and stuff would probably kill more than the bomb itself.

I'd run away from it as quickly as possible and probably shout that there's a bomb.

Jess, the bomb will explode in 2 minutes and knowing the police, they would probably arrive in like 15 minutes or so xD

I'm not sure even specialists can defuse a bomb in two minutes, and that's assuming they were on the scene already.
All one could reasonably do is avoid it and make sure others do too.

It'd still be wortwhile to call the police anyway, to investigate the matter.

Like what others said, I'd throw the bomb and run for my life. However, I'm not exactly the best thrower, and I'm not a very fast runner either, so there is this small chance I would survive, unless the explosion covers a small area.

I'd wait till 10 seconds to go before slowly walking out of the building, taking my sunglasses off and not turning around to look at the explosion behind me as it brushes past my hair so I look badass.

... nah, I'd run away and scream like a little girl. I don't know what other rational responses there would be in this situation, is it even possible for specialists to arrive & disarm a bomb in that amount of time?

lmao xD

I honestly wouldn't know what to do. I mean since there's 2 minutes left it'd be useless to call a bomb squad to deactivate it. The best thing to do is to yell that there's a bomb so that everyone around can get away as fast as possible, though in the chaos people will be trampled which will harm a lot of people but ayy at least, hopefully not as many people will die from the bomb explosion.

I don't have the know-how to diffuse a bomb, so I'd probably yell to everyone that there's a bomb, we all run like hell, and then call the bomb squad.

Also, I don't think modern bombs tick.

I'd probably throw it into the gutter, or even in the sewers, then just run like the wind. 2 Minutes is not a long time to think...

I would run as fast as I could screaming "BOMB! BOMB! RUN!" but making sure I was far enough away before I began the stampede because I don't wanna die

A lot of different variables would determine what I did, but most of them would probably end in me running like a mad man. If I'm at home, I'll make sure everyone gets out of the house before we get away, but if it were in a public place, I'd probably just get a small head start before yelling and hope for the best.
