    What if you ask and find out you have a day left?

    I think I'd want to know how I'm going to die, at least roughly, more than when. Is it going to be quick and painless or long and miserable?

    I probably wouldn't do much different if I knew I had a day left. If I quit my job or did something illegal, I'd worry the entire time that the source of my death knowledge was wrong and I'd be up shit creek the next day. I'd probably call in sick though.

    No because focusing on dying keeps you from living.
    And this from a person who voted "Beth has big feet"

    But knowing it was coming would ruin all the enjoyment from the spending.

    I'd rather not know.

    Living is for dying, dying is for you.

    I pretty much know the how already but won't know the when until I decide it's time for me to pull the proverbial plug on myself.
