Well, instead of acting like a gerbil, you could act like a lemming and jump off a cliff. Or, you could run to the nearest saloon and order as much beer as you can handle. Or, you could decide to go to bed because that was a stupid statement. When you die in the morning because the super-nova burned you to a crisp, you might have a split-second to think "Oh, I cudda had a V-8" (I hear its good for the hangover you might have had if you had time to have one.)
Kinda reminds me of the short-story where the moon was suddenly 10 times brighter. Everyone is enjoying the evening event except one guy who realizes right away this is his last night of life. Turned out half the planet died because of a superflare, not a nova and they were OK. Then the catastrophic weather killed everyone else, it just took a while to reach them. Real up-beat story.
