Wily as a coyote

1. If you could learn the day you will die and how it happens, would you want to know?

2. If you could learn the day your significant other dies and how it happens, would you want to know?

Explain why or why not

My answers

1. Normally I'm against the idea because I'd rather not have to view the grains of sand in my life slowly trickle away, moment by moment. But on the other hand, if I knew when, then I'd take more risks because I would know that climbing this mountain or parachuting or anything else won't kill me because I don't check out until this certain date. I wouldn't have a dilemma with my own mortality, day to day, because I know it wouldn't be a factor until the day I do leave this mortal coil, which is on a specific date (hopefully many years away). I'd step up and attempt to foil a bank robbery or stand up for someone getting picked on because I know I won't die from this experience.

2. Naw, there's nothing in it for me
