The rules are simple. You get to know when you die, but not the curcustances, so you are unable to change anything. Your demise is certain. But would you like to know when it is or is ignorance bliss?
For my money, I would rather not know.
I want to go peacefully in my sleep like my grandpa, not screaming like the passenger in his car
Don't want to know
Am not even slightly curious, would never, ever want to know
Gold medals aren't really made of gold. They're made of sweat, determination, and a hard-to-find alloy called guts.
I'll go ahead and say yes, I'd like to know.
I guess in a way it would either be very liberating or very troubling depending on what type of person you are. Some people would worry constantly counting down the years, months, weeks, days, or hours, while others would take the opportunity to live to the fullest for the time that they had.
I think I'd like to know too.
"A good burn is like good sex. It's simple, to the point, and leaves your victim totally destroyed."--Kenny Drebsen
Soulless people always do
The set ups are almost too easy these days
That's the way I was looking at it. And it would also help you plan things in your life and make decisions accordingly. Hypothetically, if you knew you were going to die in a year, there are probably a lot of things that you wouldn't bother doing. On the flipside, if you knew you had another 50 years, and you found out tomorrow that you had cancer, it wouldn't be nearly as scary.
Isn't it time for your meds?
His time is all day long
I think I would like to know so I could live every single day I had left (assuming it isn't 40 years in the future) to the fullest.
Life is hard. It's really hard if you're stupid.
I would like to know. I don't want anyone to have to deal with my stuff after I die. I think if I knew what day I was going to die I would have all my possessions down to just what I was going to wear that day.
I would rather know how i go rather than when. I am not afraid of dying, but more of how
I guess I would be more worried about where I go than how I go. If I have to go here...brrrr gives me shivers to think about it.
Stewie goes to hell.
Yeah. Then I'd make sure and wear clean underwear.
Before there was space or time there was rock and roll.
I would like to know when and where, that way I can avoid that place and all is good!
i just hope i end up on a future episode of Ghost Adventures, haunting the f*** out of people.
i figure whatever happens will happen when all is said and done.........but i am afraid of a painful death.
I have no idea why this is so funny to me.
Here is where you are going fish.

I think knowing when you are going to die would be weird. I just want to live man.
