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?
no, I want to live my life to the fullest. if i knew when i was going to die I would spend the rest of my days curled up in a corner crying about it.....jimmy
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.
No i don't want to know, i want enjoy every moment of my life without any fear.
Yes, and then flash that Men in Black memory eraser in front of my face!!
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.

If you knew the exact moment you were going to die, what would your last words be?To whom would you say them? We should always consider our words, as we never know which ones will be our last.

If possible: Would you be interested in knowing the exact date of your death. ?Will fear attach to it or you will live the life as usual after knowing it. ..

Here is an idea I've been pondering lately--it may be a symptom of growing older, now that I'm only about a year and a half from turning 70, and therefore knowing that my life is at least half or more over, given the general longevity statistics for this day and age.I would love to see others' take...
