Yea, I did not appreciate being put in the group of people who did not answer properly. You have since made amends to that. But your new post brought about another thing I probably don't appreciate -- your comment that I should stop my bitching. My simple line ("I guess you did not read/understand my post then. Dunno maybe it was not clear enough") is bitching?. Go ahead and call what I put in bold as bitching if you want, as I've said that over and over and nothing has really been done.

And this thread is just pathetic at this point.


I think you were the one who made it a big deal, rather than pointing out that I had missed your point you took it as some sort of personal attack, and got yourself all bent out of shape. My mistake for not noticing, but Jesus christ buddy get over it.

Also, don't call this thread pathetic just because you're having a hard time handling a mistake. If you don't like going unnoticed that much then go see a professional about that self esteem issue you got there pal..

Anyway, putting aside any unwarranted whining, let's get back to my original rant. I think the problem with people not responding properly was because they read the thread title and took it the wrong way. Doesn't matter, some of us seem to understand it..but I'll say it again in caps so you guys won't miss it for a 3rd time..

I'M NOT ASKING WHAT YOU WOULD DO IF YOU HAD A YEAR TO LIVE. Read my original post damnit, theres more to it than that >;(

Here is a perfect example of what kind of post I was looking for if you wanted to keep it simple:


I would not rather have them to tell until say..2-3 days before my actual death date.


Spot on, thank you very much CappucinoMocha.

It's not hard guys, but you're making me out to be such an anal-retentive whiner with all this bitching I have to do at you..

(Also Duster, thank you as well. I couldn't help but notice yours too ;D(

I'd rather know that i had 1 year left to live.
Cos' i wont be sad at all since i know we'll as die someday and i'd be so happy since i know i wouldn't die tomorrow in an accident or get caught up in a nuclear explosive when North Korea decides to throw one.

Although i don't really know of a situation whereby you'll know you have 1 year left to live, unless you meet a shinigami and he tells you your remaining lifespan.
Imagine you were cramming school everyday rushing homework assignments and doing tests in preparation for your Final year exams just to die 1 day before it without even knowing. It feels so pathetic.
In Singapore, recently, there was a Primary 6 student (about 12 years old) who was going to his PSLE exam and he was knocked down by a bus while he was still standing on the walkway.

Or imagine, you wanted to do a whole lot of stuff, like try certain thing you've never dared to try, or certain delicacies you've wanted to taste, certain places you wanted to go and then, 1 day before you die someone tells you, "Eh, you're going to die tomorrow." You'd doubt him for sure and then you realize you have no time to do things you've always wanted to do but never had the chance to do so. And then, throughout the night before you go to sleep, you'd be worrying, am i going to die? What happens when i die? IS there an afterlife? Netherworld? Whats in store for me? heaven? hell? Or is my existence just going to disappear.
And the next morning, your mom tries to wake you up for school or something and she sees your pale face with a worried expression and puffy eyebags because you didnt get to sleep.

Hope this answers the Question.

I'd like to know I suppose. Seeing as though its just a year I'd have left I'd want to know that I could do as many things in that amount of time. I'd do things that I wouldn't ever dream of!

meh, again, all i did was point it out. And pointed out later that i did not appreciate it.

You are the one talking about bitching, and saying stuff like "jesus christ get over it"

I think its clear whos making a big deal about it. Your commenting on my posts in detail, even the stuff that does not have to do with you, such as noting that the thread is pathetic. You make assumptions as to why I see it as pathetic. I see it as a very poor thread because of the responses, not something with me having a "hard time handling a mistake" stuff. I suppose you did not appreciate me pointing it out or something. Or you had a bad day. Or ... dunno ...

Shrug, duster said you might be worthwhile to talk to, but I don't see that to be the case at all from this. Perhaps the worst encounter I've had on this forum. This is my last post on the matter.

I would chose to know. I know everyone things about how it would be if they only knew what was going to happen in life... Knowing the details of my death would be great in the sense that I wouldn't be afraid. I would do the things I want to and spend time with those I want to. I learn a while back that the saying "knowledge is power" has a great deal of meaning behind it.

Well, thanks for pointing it out. Twice. I'd rather it had been a contribution to the subject seeing as so many people didn't seem to get it, but pointing out that I missed you was *really* what I wanted :|

You did seem to care about it way to much that your contribution had been missed, even after admitted I was wrong and said that you had. I know I said you was bitching, I apologize for that.

I can only make assumptions if you're gonna be vague. If you don't want me to make assumptions, then at least next time explain why you think something is pathetic rather than just labeling it and expecting me to automatically fill in the blanks.

I'm sorry for missing your post in the first place, and I'm sorry you can't handle me being a little vulgar (I.E."stop the bitching"), I apologize for that, but you're not exactly someone I'm desperate to be acquainted with either.

This is the result of misunderstandings and vagueness. We are both at fault here.

Tragic.

I would want to know. I'd go backpacking by myself and visit places I've wanted to visit. Use up all my money, no holding back. On my last day (if I knew the last day i'd live), I'd go back to san diego, where I grew up. See the sunset at my favorite beach

Let's say you had a year left to live and there was nothing to do about it (let's say you were pre-destined to die on a certain date), but at the same time you didn't even know it yet.

Would you rather know about it, and have the option of living out your last year to the full, or would you rather not know so that you don't spend the last year of your life dreading the future (your unavoidable death)?

Some of you may call me crazy, but personally I would not want to know if there was nothing I could do about it. Yes I could make the most of my last year if I did, but I wouldn't be able to stop thinking "I don't have much time left" and dreading what's around the corner.

I'd rather just be able to live it out as normal without any worry. We're all gonna die some day, "you could be hit by a bus tommorow" they say, but most of us never know how or when, and that's what I think keeps us happy living our lives.

Anyway..what I'm basically asking is...if someone found out that you was going to die in a short amount of time would you rather have them tell you about it or not?

Oh and please, no emo "I hate my life so I wouldn't care" nonsense please.


I'd like to know I guess, it might give me a whole new experience or a new feel to living that - as much as you might be aware of the fact that you might die any moment - can only be as effective once it's more than a mere possibility in your mind. Who knows, it might not be all dreading, I'm sure it comes with a lot of negative feelings, but it might turnout to be something that you can live with very well in another sense?

Not saying I'm too keen on dying yet, but I'm sure having death in the back of your head can have a positive effect on your living style.

Apart from that, I would just want to know every major factor concerning my life and death, even if it's unpleasant, otherwise I would have the feeling I'm not in control, right? In most situations I'd choose knowing over not knowing, it'd feel weird to voluntarily refuse important information.
