    Knowing my own death would make me extremely paranoid, but knowing others would be cool

      I agree....I would be freaked to know my death, but perhaps I could use the other one as a power to help others....

      I wouldn't want to know when my mom or brother or loved one will die.it'll make you constantly depressed. You might be sad about your own death but it'll be easier to get past

      You wouldn't be paranoid if you knew the time of your death. If anything you'd be virtually invincible until then.

      Why would it make you paranoid. If you knew the time and place of your death you could do whatever you wanted because you couldn't intervene so that means in your own death.

      I wouldnt try to avoid it, i dont even think it would be possible if you know it. In first time i would do what i wanted to, and prepare for my own death. I would get nice clothes, eat a nice dinner, drink a little, smoke some weed and take some other nice drugs. After that i would go to that exact position of my death, about an hour or half an hour earlier and lay down to wait for it. Staring at the sky and think about a possible afterlife. If there wouldnt be an afterlife it would be my personal heaven. In other cases i hope it will not be a shitlife.

    knowing your own time and place of death would make you completely fearless to do anything else before that time occurs. Knowing everyone else's would just lead to a lifetime of cassandra syndrome

    This was a very hard one...depending on how long I live, knowing when I die could mean either *SHIT ONLY A YEAR AND I DIE IN A CAR CRASH* but it could mean *Awesome I'm invincible till i'm 86* with the latter Meaning you're care free till that date....But then I wouldn't know which one was going to happen until I chose. As such (seeing as i am currently single) knowing when people i meet are going to die means I could avoid heartache by picking friends/girlfriends who I KNOW are going to live long :)

    If you knew your death was far off you would be fine and knowing it was close would make you live out your finnal days to the fullest. But knowing say your wife, childs, perants or friends would just depress the shit out of you.

    this is hard, on one hand i can know my death and try to change fate if i don't like it. on the other hand if i know for everyone else then i'd most likely be able to prevent a lot of deaths with things like "he die in three day on an airplane". so i think i'd take one for team and try to save people with my now power

    To be honest, I think knowing everyone's death in detail would be depressive as hell, and it would also take away part of the mystery of the future. Besides, you would know that nothing can stop those deaths from happening, making the whole ordeal even more depressing.

    I would be to scared all the time of dying even though i would know when i would die so I choose everyone around me. Also say you know you die at your house from a heart attack at 10:34 am. So you leave at 9:00 am to go to the beach. Sure you might still die from a heart attack but you still just intervened. And i know that somehow the universe will take care of that and SOMEHOW and put you back in your house but that would lead to many more disturbing and confusing questions. So yeah i go with red
