    Would you rather know the exact date of your death
    or the exact way that the end would come ?
    This is very morbid but tells a lot about a person.......

    It's strange but when I was a young chap I used to obsess about and fear death..Now as I get older and the grim reaper looms ever larger, I find I am more resigned to the prospect of dying.

    Tbh I would'nt mind knowing the 'when' and the 'how' but I aint that bovvered. Just as long as I die with my boots on, I'm cool.

    I don't think I care too much for the how, the end result is the same so I wouldn't really be learning anything useful.
    When would be far better. A literal deadline for when I need to have my affairs tied up and have everything done by would be much more useful.

    Interesting psychological quandary. If I knew that I would get hit by a bus on a certain date in the future I could avoid that fate by staying indoors that day.

    But generally I think it's good to try and follow Gandhi's advice:
    Live as if you're going to die tomorrow
    Learn as if you're going to live forever
