    No. We all have a time we must go. But, If this was shown to you and it was 1 month from now in a terrible car accident, Would you get into a car again?

    Did you just recently watch Big Fish? That guy learned how he was going to die and used it to his advantage.

    In this case, it's easy to say no because you don't want to think about it, you'd rather it be a surprise (in a sense), and you don't want to live a life of fear. But, I think knowing would make you feel all the more liberated. Even if you found out you'd die in a week, wouldn't it motivate you to make the most of that week instead of doing what you normally do and dying completely by surprise?

    Also, if you knew you would die farther down the line, then you could be certain that no other things would kill you, thus you could live without fear of consequences which is usually what prevents us from experiencing life to it's fullest. It seems pretty clear to me: accept the offer and prepare to make the most of the time you have instead of living a life of reticence.

      It's funny....My brother answered word for word the same answer you just gave....I guess great minds think alike..... I have seen big fish, excellent movie, I like how the characters in all his tails came together in the end.

    I don't think I want to know. I would probably agonize over it and try to change it all.

      There is no changing it because everything you would do to try to change it would just lead to that moment.

    I wouldn't want to know. There are some ways that are painful. If my death was one of them, I would fear it above all else and probably loose my sanity.

    I definitely would not want to know. It would drive me to insanity to know exactly how or when I am going to die. I mean, ever seen Final Destination? I do believe, however, that God will call me home when He sees fit.

    So, assuming there is no way to change the outcome, then yes, definitely.  Of course!!  We all know we have a finite amount of time,  From my point of view I am hoping for another 40+ years.  If I knew for sure I only had one month, I would cancel my dentist appointment and schedule more parties.
