Would you like to know the date that you will die?

It's the age old question about whether or not you would like to know exactly when you will die. I'm undecided so I hope this will help me make up my mind on the subject

    Apr 19 2013: Would you like to know the date of any of the events that are going to happen in your life? What if you knew your entire life, knew what was to happen, knew every spontaneous occurance, serindipidous speciality that was going to happen before it occured? Life would stink.

    I crave spontaneous reality. SSDD does not sit well with most people. Same argument for knowing when you are meant to exit - if you were supposed to know you would. There is also the argument of free will, although God does control all, considering the manner that we take care of ourselves affects this as well.
