    Default If you are able to know the exact date u will die, will u want to know?

    Another poll!

    For people who are willing to discuss death...

    *IF* you are able to know the exact date u will die, will u want to know?

    If you know, u can prepare insurance, will, treasure the time with love ones, change our priorities etc. It's amazing if we only know we can live another 3 months, our perspective of lives totally changed....

    on the other hand if we dunno our exact date, we can happily live and not worry about the date getting nearer and fear of losing our companionship with our loves one and hobbies...

    In a sense I would, make my peace with people and treasure the time I have left, but then I think about the other side of the coin, everyday I will be worrying about that one day, everyday i will be scared of whats going to happen next. Not knowing can often be better then knowing. I wouldnt want the worry, Id want to live everyday like I would normally not knowing. When the time comes, the time comes.

    I choose to know because it's like given a chance to prepare for a life without a regret rather than having no chance to make amendments on the day you die.

    We need to keep on reminding oursleves or get someone to remind us we will die tomorrow.

    Now that's hard to do.

    The only advantage to know when you are going is to be able to sell the camera gear for a good price in B&S before someone gets them for free.
