Hoping for 2060-ish

Justin and I watched Bucket List this past weekend (Yes, I know it has been out forever, but our DVD options are limited to red box) In one part of the movie it discusses that most people, if given the option, wouldn't want to know the date of their death. I laughed and said, "That is crazy, how would you not want to know if you could." Justin replied, "I don't think I would want to know."

I would want to know because it would change how I acted. I mean, folks, if you were told you had 6 months to live who wouldn't quit their jobs/school and hang out with loved ones and go see places in the world you had always wanted to see.

That's what I think, what about you? If you could know the date you were going to die, would you wanna?

Long time lurker here. I love your site and wish you would post more often!

I think I wouldn't want to know. Mostly because I would probably freak out and not function very well if I knew when I was going to die, but I can see why some would want to know.

I would want to know so I can arrange my burial at sea, schedule the hot polyensian dancers for the funeral and book some bad-ass caterers for the luncheon.

Yeah, I would definitely freak out.
