If you could know the exact date of your death, would you want to know?

Assuming you cannot avoid the death!

I would! Because I would spend my last week differently. Take off work, etc.

1. Nah!

I think I'd be too preoccupied with impending death to truly enjoy the time I have left. I'd rather not know.

4. From a purely mental stand point, I prefer not to know.

However, from a practical stand point, it would be better to be prepared. Glad this is hypothetical.

5. No

To this day I remember how it felt when the hospice nurse said, " He'll most likely pass tonight or tomorrow." It was so shocking to hear and it crushed my last shred of hope.

6. One thing is for sure.

Republicans want to hasten that day.

8. I would.

It would be nice to know just how long I'm going to have to make my money last. And if I were to learn that my death is coming up relatively soon (as within the next 5 years) I'd definitely spend that time doing all sorts of things I haven't gotten around to yet.

Of course, that supposes that I won't be spending the next five years too infirm to travel.

And if I've got another 30 years ahead of me (and I'm now 68), I'll have to forego some adventures so that I can have a reasonably comfortable extreme old age.

You would be unkillable until then.

10. Yes.

It gives you the upper hand in negotiations with the devil for selling your soul.

12. Absolutely.....

Be good to avoid all the complications for the family around unexpected deaths..that can be real messy.

could be a shock if it were in a matter of months vs. years.

You know, it would be interesting to see how old people are who answer this question..I'm thinking maybe 50-60 plus
would answer differently than a 30 year old?????
