If you could, would you want to know?I would but I am a planner. I don't like surprises, even good ones. I could plan everything so I would finish everything before that date. How about you?

No I wouldnt want to know my dealth date. I always thought I would like to know when I was going to die but Ive given it alot of thought and no that wouldnt be good for me. I think its better not to have something like that on your mind. And just live a happy life.

im torn between yes and no. the reason why i want to know about it is because i want to be able to do all the things i need, and been wanting to do before that deadline. but then, knowing when im going to die would probably make me go insanely paranoid. knowing that date would only spoil every chance of spontaneity in my life -- like falling in love with a complete stranger.

I feel the complete opposite. If I know the date then I wouldn't have to worry about is this the day? Is this it?And lack of time wouldn't stop me from falling in love. In fact it would make me more bold knowing I had so little time left.

No, I wouldn't. Because I suppose that the day is coming. I just do everything as if this is the day. (But sometimes I forget it, hehehehe....) God bless, Sarahruthbeth22! (``,)

Hmmm... I kinda like surprises. But you made a rather broad assumption. What if you don't ever die? That's part of my master plan. I think it'll be fun in a thousand years to be on some talk show discussing why I chose to live so long. Seriously, though. I really don't need to know when I am going to die. And I'm not going to stress out if I don't accomplish everything by the time I do go.

Luckily I have done everything I wanted already and I got to see a few miracles along the way so if I die tomorrow it would be okay.

No, I wouldn't want to know anything specific about the date that I'd die. All that would make you do is worry about it and cause added stress. When I had cancer 6 years ago, the Dr's said that I would probably be took 'quick'. I replied that I didn't want to be given any life expectancy estimates because I believe that sticks into your subconscious and becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. Instead of being 'took quick' I'm still here almost 7 years later and totally cancer free. So, no...I do believe that information would lead to depression, and would work counter to living your life out in quality. It's ok to be a planner, so in that vein most things should be properly taken care of in the event of an accident because you just never know.

No, I never want to know it. If I knew when I would die, I would have a shadow and felt bad all the time. My life will be full of sadness and negative feelings. I like unknown future as you can have expectation for it.

No I wouldnt....why set myself up for additional stress ya know...if you can't change the date but know when it is the closer it gets to that time the more and more you'd stress and panic over it...I say let it happen whenever its gonna happen and just live day to day without having to worry about it

Geeshh...a very hard question. I'd like to say yes because as you've mentioned, you can prepare and accomplish everything hopefully before your time comes but, I also would like to answer no because I do not want to be aware as to when will I die and leave here on earth. It's just a sad truth if that happens. ;(
