If you could know exactly when you're going to die, would you want to know? Why or why not?

That's an interesting question. I've thought about it and no, I don't really want to know when I'm going to die. In fact, I don't even like saying I'm going to die, even though we all are. I guess because knowing such information would affect the way I live my life now. Like if I had known my future years ago I might have made some different decisions and not have taken the path I ended up taking, although those actually turned out pretty good decisions after all in the end. Good question, though. I imagine people have a lot of mixed feelings about this.

I wouldnt want to know because that way I can live my life to fullest.I f I knew when I was going to die I would be so bogged down with worry I wouldnt be able to do anything else.In fact I would probably have a heart attack just thinking about it .Good discussion
