    Do you prefer to know what day you will die or you rather not know? I will choose not knowing it as it will remove the uncertainty element from life.

    Actually, it makes no difference.

    However, when you know when you're going to die (say, from a terminal illness), you will go through that 5 stages of grief and still accept that death is inevitable, and thus, it becomes 'unscary'. At least when you expect it you can fulfil as many last wishes you have before you pass on.

    With an unexpected death, sure, no pain, but you may miss out your final preparations or have wishes go unfulfilled.

    Yeah, yeah, I know what some of you are gonna say. "If that's the case, why not fulfil as many wishes as you can when you're alive and kicking?" Problem is, you won't have the 'reason' or motivation to. With death at stake, you're 'motivated' to take action.

    What does this tell you? YOLO. You might as well after your dreams now (try to. Maybe read some motivation book to get psyched). Exercise, eat and slepp well, stay happy and positive :)

    It will be unscary initially. When it starts approaching, fear will come in mind. An advantage that you can all the financial work for relatives in time like telling them about your savings and investments. .

    Yeah, I guess that's why some people will turn to religion as their solace when their time is near. It is the faith and belief in the afterlife (and that angels and what not will accompany them, etc.) that eases the fear in one way or another, I guess.

    Well, religion isn't allowed so let's not get into that (and I'm not a religious person at all). lol

    You can choose to die whenever you want via suicide so, the option to know when and how you’ll die is the same as having someone try to murder you.

    Depends on how it happens, does my heart just stop? Is it via lethal injection? Does a piano fall on me out of nowhere? There are so many ways it could happen and so many ways it can be prevented. I could just get a heart transplant, completely change my identity to hide from the people out to kill me, and I could avoid the place where the piano falls.

    The OP said that you would know the exact way you die in advance, then you would also know ways to prevent the event from happening. You could easily cheat death. There are just too many variables to make the death event inevitable at the said time. I just don’t think anyone could possibly cement the time of death because just by knowing this information you could change your fate.

    I'd like to know beforehand, because I want to perform good deeds before I die. And doing that is hard because I keep on guessing that I still have tomorrow.

    My tip: do not seek for an answer to this question.

    A couple of years ago I had a Gypsy woman reading me my future. During this sessiona she told me the exact moment of my death. Turned out to be exactly 3 months from the moment that we met.

    You can imagine that I had a bad night sleep after this. The next day I decided to go all 50 Cents “do or die trying”, gathered up the homeboys and reclaimed our old spot on the block and started slingin rocks again.

    We did end up making a fair amount of money in a short time, but after a few weeks Pedro and his boys did a drive-by and seriously wounded a couple of my homies.

    Since the code on the street requires you to take action, or be eaten alive by the hyena’s, I decided to dig up the old rusty Mac 10 and visited Pedro and his biatch.

    In the end I shot up his place, killed his Pitbulls and got arrested a few days later . I got charged with aggrevated assualt and was sentenced to 4 years hard time.

    To be honest I could not give a flying f&ck, since I was going to die in a couple of weeks anyway.

    Imagine my disbelieve to discover that after 2.5 years in prison I was still effin alive.

    In the end I got parolled and now I am here on BHW looking for a niche to generate some money.

    Word on the street is that Pedro is still looking for me, so now I prefer the internet for human interaction.

    The worst that could happen on the internets is that you sign-up for to many email newsletters that flood your inbox or you lose some money on a badly written article.

    All of this still beats a bullet in the brain tho.
