  • Yes I would. More than that I would also like to know the method of my death. While it is nice to be able to blasily (is that a word?) go along my merry way, assuming that I will live for ever, or at least until I am three hundred and fifty, There are things to be said about knowing when where and how I will die. There are a great many things I would like to do in life, and many of them get put off for a year or ten because I have a mortgage or rent a house, because the children need help with with school/college fees and charges, because that new car comes first. Knowing that your life is finite, and there is a definite end to it helps in planning what is really important in the time left. If I have one year left do I really want the new car, or is a trip to New Zealand more worthwhile? If my life is measured in days do I care about defaulting on that electricity payment? If I am going to live to be 350, do I really want to commit a crime that would give me a life sentence? Don't get me wrong, though. I don't want to know the gory details of my death. A simple note with "10 Dec 2090, 14:15, Waterloo Station, derailed train." would be quite sufficient for me.
  • No. it would only cause great anxiety to yourself and your family. just watching the clock tick away the minutes would be enough to drive you crazy. I say let nature and destiny take its course. when its time, its time. Just be prepared.
  • Yes, so I wouldn't have to bother getting out of bed that day. Actually, I would do everything I could to make sure I didn't die (like hide in a hole that day). Everyone tries to cheat nature learning about the various bacteria and viruses which should kill us...why not use the Grim Reaper's date book as a weapon against him?
  • Yes. But only if there was no way to prevent it. If I thought I could stop it, I would no doubt become extremly parinoid, thus ruining the life time I have left.
  • Nah, ruin the surprise! Unless, it was terminal cancer, then I'd want to know.
  • no i wouldn't because i'd drive myself nuts worrying about how my family would cope with my passing,
  • Yes, I would prefer to know. Whether I was able to do anything about it, at least I would be able to do the things I would like to accomplish before I die.
  • Yes and No. Yes because i could do everything I wanted to ever do within that time. No because I would drive myself crazy waiting and hoping that nothing happened before that time.
  • Yes and No. Yes because i could do everything I wanted to ever do within that time. No because I would drive myself crazy waiting and hoping that nothing happened before that time.
  • well i dont think i would want to cause then i would be nervous waiting for that moment. sorta likee when u know ur gonna have to go on stage ur nervous.. so thats how i would feel butt as im sitting here typing this im thinking maybe i would want to know because then u would no u could do some wild and crazy things and u knew u werent gonna die like that.. but yet u could paralize yourself... hmm so its kinda a yes and no situation.. lol
  • That's a tough one. I guess if I knew I only had X amount of time left then I could tell everyone goodbye, I love them, quit my job and live a little, and put my affairs in order. But knowing exactly when or how? I think that would be a little too scary for anyone to want to know.
  • It would have its good points, I would get every credit card and loan I could get and go off round the world for a couple of months just before I died. There are also a couple people I would "visit" for a "friendly" chat just before I died as well. I do personally think you should always live for today, because you never know whats going to happen and I would rather die young and happy, than old and miserable anyway.
  • It wouldn't matter if I knew or not because by knowing the future, it means that the future is already planned and can happen no other way. Therefore, knowing this would allow an alternate destiny which would in itself, change the future just by knowing it. But let's just keep it simple and I would say yes, because being able to avoid a death such as a car crash, or something avoidable would be a good thing.
  • I dont think I would want to know, because regardless of what I did in the meantime I would still be bummed, waiting for that fateful day.
  • I dont think I would like to know ... I wouldent be a ble to live my life, I would just worry about death, even if I was trying to "live life to the fullest"
  • I dont think i would like to know when i'm going to die, but with whatever remaining time i have left, i would spend as much as possible with my family and friends, and donate as much as possible to the less fortuanate
  • No, I dont want to know. When it's time for me to go, I just want to go.
  • No. I already try to do things I like to do.
  • I would def not want to know, but if I did, I would have to make a bet with my friends on the day, just to freak them out, and hopefully give them something to smile about at my funeral...weird, I know, but you really have to know me. I hate taking death too seriously.
  • I think I might already know, but I'm not sure anyone would believe me! As for the next one... hmmm. depending on entertainment value, I might work towards again averting... But life is not lived unless there is no thought of death. remember, death is a lot easier to summon than most people know...... and no, im not going to post how I know!
  • ya, i would
  • i'd prefer it a suprise.
  • No cos I'd go crazy.. all the more fun not knowing what will happen but still living each day like it's your last
  • An astrologer predicted the death of my friend and the mode of his death. He died as predicted. It is scary, but many astrologers in Asia calculate the future based on the time, place, and date of birth and it is accurate to the core in many instances in my personal experience. I would prefer to know, as least I will plan my finances upto that time. Why bother investing in long term investments when I know I can't use them.
  • I don't think I could ever really know the precise date. I mean, let's say I was told I'm going to die on January 10th. Well, somewhere around the beginning of January I'd probably be crazy enough to kill myself prematurely or something.
  • Nope, I would just be bummed and not enjoy life. I love every day, that is all I want.
  • Some people do
  • No - at least not at this time. As it gets closer, I may kow and I may choose to wait to leave until things are in order and goodbyes are said. Then, I will be able to breath my last breath in my own timing as I have seen many people do.
  • No way...no mystery left
  • Ignorance is bliss.
  • yes it would prepare me for the inevitable
  • in one way, yes i would like to know my precise death date. i would like to know it because then i could do the things that i want to do before i die., like sky dive, mountain climb, and other really fun things. in another way i wouldn't like to know my death date because then i would get extremly nervous, and scared. just imagine that you are going to day in two minutes and forty-two seconds. imagine counting down the seconds untill you die. that right there would be as scary as ever!
  • No way! My life would turn into a macabre countdown.
  • HECK NO!!! I HATE COUNTDOWNS! I'd always be rushing around doing stuff! Thinking I only have so long to live! But then again, it was be soo cool, cuz then I would know, I could do ANYTHING without dying! Cuz I knew when I was going to die.. But I wonder.. If, near the end of the countdown, we see what might kill us, if we avoid it, will our time extend? Hmmmmmm .evol ni
  • Your Personal Day of Death is... Friday, September 26, 2064 yeah deathclock.com
  • It could either make me so anxious I never got any quality out of what life I had left, or it could cause me to be complacent and to also go too slowly on things, and miss out on things in that respect. I'd rather just be surprised and preferably asleep when the time comes, whenever it might be.
  • Why I would: I could live up to that date, then live my last hours on earth doing great stuff, and saying bye to everyone. Why I wouldn't: I would like some mystery and a surprise!
  • I think I rather know when.. i just want to make sure all my loved ones are taken care of. If i know the date, i can better prepare for it. I am not worried about dying, in fact I am not scared of dying. Its going to happen anyways, mind as well know when.
  • No. Why? Do you know it? Write it on a piece of paper, fold it and then slide it over to me. Tnx.
  • yes, i would like to know a precise date of my death? But does anyone really know when you are going to die? only God knows , i think. When it is your time to go , you'll go! I think! But i tend to wonder because of my kids and wonder if i should have a will to make sure they are taken care of? any thought to that? I'm 37 and have some issues with my health like osterporsis, anxiety, broken heart, nerve issues, an ulcer, just really sometimes feel like i'm close to death! any helpful information , can someone reply to me?
  • If it was going to be in a car crash or any other type of accident I would want to know so I could avoid it.
  • I don't think I would want the chance of knowing whether I'd live 20 more years, or 20 more days.
  • If I knew when and how I was going to die, I could adjust my choices accordingly and possibly prevent it. Plus, it would be good to know when I need to take out health insurance!
  • I'm not sure I would like to know because sometimes you don't want to know or you find out something and you go down hill from there. If I had a choice I would like to die peacefully while I'm asleep. How about anyone else? But sometimes it's good to know what the health problem is so you can get help by a dr. and hopefully fix the problem.
  • Yea I guess I want to know so I can saay goodbye and get things in order, also if I know the day I would also try to find out how I was gonna go. Like if it was a car accident guess where I wouldnt be on Thursday!
  • That would be an added convenience :)
  • Damn and I thought that was a stupid question to type in. lmfao
  • I wouldnt. Its less fun that way. More worry.
  • Yes, cause then I could invite who I wanted to come to my funeral.
  • i don't think i'd want to know. i'd be afraid of focusing so much on my impending death that i'd stop living.
  • prefer it to be a surprise as long as i dont suffer before my last breath.
  • i am of two minds.. i would like to know so that i could fit in everything i wanted to do with my life, and so that i could say goodbye to my loved ones... but on the other hand.. my impending death would probably make me very depressed, and therefore i wouldnt enjoy my last days anyway.. but if i did know the time and date perhaps i could prevent my own death? its certainly a difficult choice!
  • I would like to know, I don't like surprises! If you knew you could plan and try to do all the stuff you want to do before you go. When you don't know you assume you have lots of time left and so don't really make the most of it.
  • i would rather it be a suprise because if i knew i was going to die from a bomb that hits the united states there would really be nothing i can do except go to a different country but what if they got bombed too.
  • SURPRISE!!!!
  • i'd rather know.
  • The idea of knowing sounds all well and good, but in every horror movie I've seen in which this occurs, it's never pretty. I'd rather not know, thanks ^_^
  • no id rather be surprised. because if i knew i was gonna die i would change completely and if i am gonna die i'd rather have fun and not be scared or worried
  • I would like to know. I think it would change my view of life, since I think all the fear in life is the fear of Death. I could plan everything out, and knowing I would go, I'd throw the biggest, craziest party ever right before, and do all the things people don't do because of their fear.
  • i want to know.there are things i want to do...and things i WILL do....
  • I'd wanna know. That way I might be able to ride some roller coasters that, now that I know they won't be the death of me, I'd be into trying.
  • I would want to know. I think I would appreciate and enjoy life much more if I knew. Now, if it turned out I had only days to live, that would be really torturous. It's a gamble I would take though.
  • Surprise me.
  • I don't want to know! We don't know ! That's why it's important to live EVERY day like it's our last.
  • Absolutely not. I think I would go nuts.
  • Yes, time to prepare and say goodbye. Get to do things I always wanted to first. But I don't want to know how I'm going to die.
  • No! Because I want to enjoy my life to the fullest.
  • No. Knowing would make me feel really uneasy.
  • too nerveracking,no.
  • it would sort of ruin my life every time i thought about how close i was, but i would want to prepare, write my will, say goodbye to the ones i love and care for.
  • hell yeah becuse i would know how much time i got left to do everything i want to do your the 70s guy arnt you :)
  • Yes...or no. In some ways, I would want to so that I could accomplish everything I want to in a timely matter, but I think that if I knew, I'd make myself nervous by counting down the days, months, or years. I wouldn't be able to live my life if I knew, whereas if I didn't know, I'd be in ignorant bliss. Unless you could change the future once you knew it, and it wasn't predetermined. But then I'd be tempted to always try pushing it back more and more, and again I'd be preoccupied with dying rather than living. Yeah, I wouldn't want to know.
  • GGAAAKKKK!!!! NO!!!!
  • I would want to know it...but knowing myself, I would forget to write it in my datebook!
  • Boy I have to agree with Montmorency! I think if I knew the day/time/details of my death, it would make living in the moment very hard. I think the best life is the one right here, right now. I hate it when I allow worries or problems to take me away from the moment. I try very hard not to do it. Death is a hard thing for me to concentrate on. When I do, I begin to wonder all kinds of things and question things. I like it better when I live in today and just trust in my faith. You know something that might make me change my mind was if I were going to die of something I could change. Like if I died from clogged arteries, I might be able to change my diet a bit. Or probably not, never mind :)
  • I think I'd become so obssessed with the knowledge that I would no longer actually live my life. Part of the wonder of humanity is the never ending possibilities we all have at our fingertips at any given moment. If we knew exactly where we were going to end up, it would really destroy that wonder.
  • No, I'll take the surprise ending.
  • No.I just LOVE a suprise!!
  • nope, cause i would try to fight it which may end up being the REASON i die, for trying to escape it.
  • no way man
  • No! Stay the hell away from me.
  • No. I'd rather be surprised by it.
  • No way! That would be worse then just dying right now.
  • Actually yes. Did you ever see "Big Fish"? Knowing exactly how and when you would die would make you basically invincible up to that point.
  • No, I would not want to know.
  • Ive just recently seen "One Missed Call" (horrible movie by the way), so id say hell no!
  • No, I would live worried about the moment coming closer, and that is no way to live.
  • Yes, I would! I would like to know how much time I have left!
  • No, it would take away from everything between now and then, since it would all become a build-up to my death. Food wouldn't taste as good, rollercoasters would lose their thrill, everything would become shades of grey going towards a distant, but visible, black.
  • I absolutely would like to know. It just seems like if it was close, I could change my life's course - right now, I am kind of working on achieving "long term wealth". If I knew I was going to die next year, I'd skip school and catch the red eye to Vegas!
  • No, too much added stress! Live each day as if it was your last! Enjoy Life, only then can you celebrate your death with no regrets!
  • No. It would scare me to death.
  • no, then nothing would be special anymore. life is about the mystery, the unknown.
  • no, I think I want to be surprised
  • No. I have some friends that can do futures very well and I won't let them tell me stuff. It changes how you would otherwise live your days. Someone knowing their future really impacts upon their free wii.
  • I would want to know.
  • No, sir, I think the anticipation would drive me nuts.
  • Yes so that I could re-evaluate my life on a much faster scale
  • Yes, I would. I could let my family know, so they could plan for it. Then I would do all of the things I would like to do before I die....like getting a million points in AB.
