    I will like to love more, live more, smile more, eat more, cry more........sorry just joking :-)
    For me it will be as normal as it can be. Because its the ultimate truth that if one is born one is going to die. Never mind what is the cause and what is the date.  Above mentioned situation will dampen my mood as the mysticism about life will vanish with the secret being open. I will prefer to live with the enigma of life. Then so called people around will feel pity which I will never enjoy. For me the unknown future is the key for a new energy to move on with life. if this is no more then life will be like a delicious looking salted dish without the salt and spice. i will embrace the mystery of death about the time and cause rather then the knowledge of it.
    Good question.

    Before my time was up, I would carry on with life as best I could.  I would find it very hard to not focus on my end and not trying to change my fate.  Don't get me wrong, I know we all have to die at some time for one reason or another, but tell me that it will be at a certain place and at a certain time, I am going to try and mess it up.
    I would go to all sorts of effort to be somewhere else than where I should be.  I would then be amazed if I found myself somehow ending up at the one location that I was trying so hard to avoid, but not for long.

    You meant differently...

    What would you do if you knew the exact day and cause of your death in the future?

    Nothing different from how I am conducting my life now,

    I would feel like I have not much time left, so I would start my bucket list right NOW!

    I honestly would not want to know how or when it was my time to go. Life is short as it is.

    I would do everything I had remaining before then and do a whole bunch of supremely riskier things than I normally would and say what I truly thought to people. After all, I know they won't be my cause of death!

    Oh man.  I would probably do a lot of things.  First of all, about a month before the dreaded date I would sell off anything of value, empty out my bank account and put it into my pock, make sure I have plenty of credit cards, and kidnap my best friend.  Then I would go on the biggest, baddest adventure around the world, going to all the places I have always dreamed of visiting, and then end it all with the strongest alcoholic beverage known to man in my hand.

    Cool question...I had to think about it and come back. I would do what I could to prevent it. If it was something I had any control over. If there were nothing I could do, I would live my life and embrace the day coming where my new life will be beginning. (So I would probably throw a party and have a drink, and I don't drink.) Not the deepest answer in the world however we all are going to die someday. What makes us feel a bit better is not knowing when we are going to die and how. That could be at any moment though. Everyone I hold dear to me knows how much I love them now. Maybe I would do some things that I haven't done yet but over all, I don't think I would change a thing with that knowledge.

    The cause matters little to me; rather, the timing will dictate my future actions. If death had designs for my body many years later (70 and older), then I will conduct my life just as I am presently. However, if death were to command my last breath in the next few days to months, then I would attend every Cirque du Soleil performance I desire to see, paraglide, hang glide, take trapeze and aerial art classes, bask in one last sunset at the beach and wantonly consume my favorite junk foods around the country. If I had only an hour left, I’d write a note to those I love then listen to a song that reminds me of the one I love.

    This is a wild one! I would definitely have to skydive (at least once); travel around the world kissing random people, for no particular reason; write a will for my daughters and family; touch Halle Berry's hand (or any part of her being); and confess all my sins at confession. That is all.

    What I would do would change very little from what I do now. I breathe in and out, I love everyone each moment, that won't change.

    There would be a few practical things - like knowing the right moment to buy a really big life insurance policy!

    I'm assuming that this knowledge is of a moment of death that I cannot change. If it is something I can change, and it was happening sooner than I wanted, I'd work to change it.

    Sometimes, it can be a blessing in disguise to know when and how you are going to die.

    In Feng Shui, we do know that our destiny of fate can be changed. So if you happen to know when and how you are going to die, it maybe a sign to make changes that helps to avert the danger or disaster that has yet to happen.

    Many times, I have witnessed people resign themselves to Fate but I am a believer that it is not necessary to be this way. Certain things in life can be changed provided if you want to do so.

    It is like a decision that decides your Fate. For example, when you walk on the road and come to a junction of a fork road. You either take the right fork or walk the left fork road. This sort of decision is like what you want to do in life.

    For me, depending on when & how I am to die and if there is a solution to avert it, I will take my chance to make the necessary changes.

    I would not get out of bed on that day and make the most of everyday leading up to it.

    I would try to forget it as quickly as possible. That kind of knowledge can only lead to trouble. Thinking about one's ultimate demise, will certainly rob one of many victories today.

    Tell my family and friends how much I loved them.  Something was nagging at me all night the night before my son passed telling me "Tell him you're proud of him...Tell him you love him".  Well that morning I did tell my son how proud I was of him but never told him that I loved him....why....I don't know....I guess he would have wondered why  I was being so gushy.  Maybe thought I was being weird since I saw him every day and he was a man (27).  So I let it go at "I'm proud of you".  Damn how I wish I would have told him I loved him cause he was gone soon after he left our house.  He didn't get a half a km down the road.  I love you Luke.
