Death

Would you rather know the exact time you will die or how you will die?
Why?

I had to write a paper in college on this subject for a Death & Dying class I took, and I ended up deciding I'd want to know when I will die when given the choice.

I figured if I found out I was to die in something common like a car accident or from illness, then every time I'd be in a car or get sick my world would feel like it was ending, and if I lived until I was 90 years old that would be a whole lot of my life spent worrying about, "Is this the end?"

Whereas if I knew WHEN I could plan my life accordingly, although knowing when might suck as the time approaches, particularly if you didn't have much left.
