Death

If you could find out the exact date and time that you're going to die, would you want to know?

I don't think so....but I may be too curious to resist. Then it would kill me because curiosity killed the cat.

Benefit would be , you could go elsewhere. Might give one time to consider. How to go out. Maybe go to Amsterdam , puff on a bong and eat brownies.. . Much better to face life's challenges in the right mindset.

Everyone should know by now that nothing is obscure on the internet, especially cheesy 80s movies.

I would much rather know the location. That way I can avoid the area.

Even when you think you have an idea, you could be wrong; a friend was thinking she was down to her last few months (though it could stretch to a year or more; I think there's that thought process, you always look at the far end of the distribution 'cause hey, you never know), and then bang/pneumonia/dead. Less than a week from when the whole horizon-shortening started.

I'm not really sure I would, but I'm guessing there'd be more than one insurance company out there that would kill for that information.
