    I would want to know. It's difficult to explain why exactly, but I would.

    I can't really say yes or no. The answer is more a case of "I don't care either way."

    When it happens, it happens. It could be tomorrow or next week.

    Life is arbitrary and finite concept, and it'll only be here for each of us as long as it wishes to be.

    I'm in no rush to find out any of the answers, but what happens happens.

    Hmm.

    Is the date fixed? Does the reveal make it negotiable somehow? What if I want to implode at a different date/time?

    Those questions aside, I think the reveal would be enlightening. Would make each day (until your last) absolutely fearless. You would never be afraid to live again. If you are untouchable, there is no pause for anxiety or excessive contemplation. Life would become all that more tangible; all that more profound.

    So, yes. Sign me up.

    uhhhh, where exactly would this information be coming from? a super genius scientists? angel of death? god? that kind of matters...

    and considering that as we progress scientifically we are discovering more and more aspects of our universe are probabilistic and not deterministic, I would heavily scrutinize any definite date, even if it came from some entity calling itself God.

    Yes, I would seriously like to know. I would be SO PISSED OFF if I retired and then keeled over the next day. I don't care if I'm going to die next year, just let me have a little bit of time that I don't have to work before I go. And I need to know how long that will be so I can plan, because my quality of life depends a lot on how far I have to make my money stretch.

    P.S. I do not understand obsessing and such over one's own death.

    I would really like to know, because if it's early then I don't have to waste my time and money on college and do really crazy things.

    Absolutely! Though I can't see how this work unless divine intervention prevents me from getting killed before then.

    Oh, you know what would be really cool? A death scope, which tells you whether you are moving towards your death or not. It says, "If you go to Africa you'll die 3 years from now." Hmm, I must contract malaria over there, or perhaps dangerous parasites.

    No way.... I'd get gradually more nervous about it every day. Especially if I'm going to die from a terrible disease. I'd rather not know.
    Masquerading as a normal person day after day is exhausting.
