    There are so many people who are terminally ill.  They will know when they die more so than anyone else.  If you had a choice would you want to know when you would die or how you would die?

    I would want to know about when I would die.  I already know how I would spend my last days.  To choose how to live in the end is liberating.

    What would you do if you knew?

      I would do anything different, because my situation would most likely remain the same as it is presently. wink

      I already know exactly when I will die, but I don't know how. As an organ donor, how is important for me.

      I do not know if I would want to know when I die, I just want to know that I did live and did not just exist.  Death is part of life it is just the last part.

      I might like a general idea. For example, "In your seventies" but no, not an exact date. Surprise me.

    Had a friend who knew he was going to die within a given period of time. He didn't tell anybody and didn't change a thing.

    Absolutely not! I would spend my entire life freaking out about that day, wondering what's going to happen, how I'm going to die, am I going to have all the time I need to do everything I want? It wouldn't be worth it.

    I wouldn't freak out. If I had a time frame for when I was going to die, I'd spend that time chucking caution to the wind. Because let's face it, I'm leaving this stage on my own terms.

    I never want to know when or how I am going to die. I don't even believe I will ever die.
    But, if I knew for certain that I was going to die on a given date, and that it was totally unavoidable, I'd just make sure I have a damned good time until the end. First thing I'd do is take out several bank loans I could never possibly pay back. Then the party would begin.

    Having watched someone slowly dying and sad that they did not fulfill all the things they wanted I have my "bucketlist" and until the day I do die I will continue to knock things off.  Things i want to do for me but more importantly things I want to give back to others, for people less advantaged than myself.  I only hope that I can continue to do both right till the last moment whenever that will be.
    My father dropped dead on the dance floor.  Thats just the way I would like to go.
    Live life full on until you can no more.............

    If it were now yes I would want to know, as I would make plans for my young children, record video messages, tell my husband he must remarry again, but only to someone who would love my kids like their own, prefeably one of my friends then and other things like that...if I live to old age I think then I would rather just drop down dead!

    No definitely not.I don't want to know about this.Because all of us will have to die someday.Its destiny.So,knowing it before time,I don't want to be sad anymore.Just want to live each moment fully before that tragic end comes.Not at all interested to waste any single moment thinking about that one which is obvious.

    Nobody knows when they will die exactly, but I do know how I want to die -

    I want to be shot by a jealous husband while exiting his wifes bedroom window by shinning down the drainpipe - at the age of 98
