    If you could learn the exact date, time, and way you were going to die, would you want to know?

    I have always been fascinated by the concept of mortality. We are born with one life to live. I wonder if we knew when our time was coming, would it change the way we live? The decisions we make? How we spend out precious time?

    My Great Grandfather knew exactly the date, time, and how he would die.

    A Judge told him.

    Sorry couldn't resist that old joke.

    Personally I want it to be a surprise. I think most people would be paralysed by such knowledge.

    I prefer to believe that my future is unpredictable and may change at any time so my date of death cannot be defined either.
    Otherwise I would be devastated that my whole life is set - what would be the point of living knowing that everything was pre-planned already!

    "Way I was going to die" - Simple. I'd watch out for that car.

    Seriously though, if I knew how I was going to die, I'd ask my Doctor how to survive it, or an adventurer, or whomever may have the correct knowledge and understanding of my death experience. After-which I would keep track of my life, then when the occasion arises I'll be comforted in knowing I won't be at the place I will die, or I will have the correct medicine to stop the death.

    Assuming I'm disallowed to stop the death, I'd obviously try to cram in as much as possible, assuming I live under the average age in UK (85) - if I live over however, I'd just resume day-to-day business with the understanding I still have a good 70 years left in me.

    Yeah. I'd love to know. It means I'd be immortal up to that point and could do pretty much anything I pleased without fear of ending up dead. Also, when the time came, I would have the opportunity to take out a few hundred thousand dollars in loans, max out my credit cards, and go out with a good bottle of scotch in my belly.
