November 15, 2005
I've just come across an interesting poll on one of the websites I frequent:
If you had the opportunity to know the time and place of your death, would you want to know?
I was torn between the two, until I realised that knowing when I was going to die would lend a certain futility to my life; I'd probably have even less inclination to do anything (currently it's just laziness; laziness and a sense of mortality would not be a good combination), along the lines of "What's the point, I'm going to be dead in like 50 years."
So I went for "No" (as had a majority of people at that point, but only just over 50%) because then at least I'd try to achieve things.
Then I though that it might be nice to know something like a week in advance, so I could get my affairs in order, as it were.
