      or more likely, say by car, then you gotta fear driving, being driven, cars going past you, car going through your house, so in the end, just pick the blue one

      Yes, maybe I'll know what'll kill me, but I won't expect it. If it's an exact time, for the last seconds of my life, I'll be really stressed, angry and impatient. If I'll know how I will die, I'll be freaked out every time I see a thing/person that will kill me, but if I would know when I would die, I'd just keep sitting there, and watching my seconds go away.

      @Roarflmao but you never know....you might just die when you decide you want to go swimming.Because if you want to go swimming because of knowing of your drowning death, then you must be insecure of your swimming skills....which may mean you're not good yet. in summary, you drown

      but when you know when you're gonna die you'll just wait until that time comes panicking. Me? I'd continue with my life because the only reason I don't want to die is because my family will miss me. And if I would die by drowning I'd still go swimming because it's gonna happen sometimes, and if I don't go swimming at all? there is bound to be a flod and other people are gonna die. And I don't want that.

      Once you know how long you have, you could just get on with your life but with the exception that you could have a nice meal, maybe spend your last afternoon with a loved one, have one last smoke and off to die. After all, you can't avoid it, if it's that date and time then it's that date and time no matter what you do.

      If I know when I'll die, I'll just be more paranoid. It's like; "you will die in 2 hours". I'm just gonna be like; "uhh... should i finish playing my video games then??" but if I know how I die, It's like; "you will die in a car crash" so I'd be more careful around roads. Either way, you'll die in the end.

      Does this mean if you know how you will die, say by car accident, and you jump off out of a plane with no parachute will you die? You will know that you will die, but that means you can basically do whatever you want and not die.

      if you know HOW you'll die, it'll save your live! including having a longer livespan. For example if Cameron Boyce knew he had a seizure, he'd get medical help or something to deal with that. therefore he wouldn't be dead.

    Stolkmen... If you know how you will die, that is how you are going to die. You can't stop it. Anything you try to do to stop it will probably cause it. And if you know it will be by a car crash, you will always be afraid of cars. Or ballpoint pens I guess.

      If you know how and not when, you can't prevent it. If you almost get hit by a car but avoid it at the last second, then you haven't prevented your death; it might just be the next car that kills you. Trying to prevent it will just make you paranoid. Also, it will probably be old age, so that's kind of inevitable.

    If you know when, you know that up till that point, you won't die. So you can do whatever you want and have fun the rest of your life and not worrying about dying until that very last day. You also wouldn't fear many things either, as none of them would kill you unless you were on your last day.

    If I know when then I can plan ahead. If I know I will die in 40 years than technically I'm invincible till then. I know nothing will kill me until then

    Why would you want to know how you would die! You then be so paranoid about it you would stay away from it at all costs and never know when it will kill, but with knowing how you will die you can kind of plan out your life and even try to avoid the death at the time it happens. For example, knowing how: Someone burning you alive. You'd stay away from gas, matches, lighters, campfires, and all of that Knowing when: Can probably try to avoid it if possible.

    Know when you die: up until this time youre immortal ...remember the time you were like 'fk thats dangerous...' Now youd be like 'fuck it not dangerous enough'. If you knew how youd die you would live permanently in fear of something. Lets say you drown. Okay you dont go swimming. You will slip while taking a shower knock yourself out land on the sink the warer rises you drown. Death finds a way. I rather expect it than live in fear

    Definitely better to know when. If i only know how, i'm gonna be constantly worried about whatever is that'll eventually kill me, and that's no way to live. But knowing when, i can at least plan for it, even if i don't even know what's gonna kill me until the actual moment it does it.

    If you know how you will alway be terrified in situations that may lead to something like it...like car accident...never being able to be in a car with out being afraid

    'When' is so much better than 'how'. I mean, what if you got told you were going to die in a car crash? You'd never set foot in a vehicle. Drowning? You'd never go near water. Murder? You'd never sleep!

    You can't scientifically know how you will die in all cases. Lets say you will be hit by a bus crossing the street to work. Since you know how you will die, you'd be able to avert it. Therefore nullifying the death occurance. That means that death cannot be known to anyone, unless it's something you really can't avoid, like cancer.

      Doesn't work you will die that way no matter what you will die from drowning you don't know when you will die from it but you will die from it no matter what so you will live in constant fear of water till you eventually die.

    Still, the red option is "know how you will die" you can't change that. If you die from drowning, you can't say you'll avoid water for the rest of your life. you never know, I might throw you into the water. Or your plane crashes and you drown. Besides, in some cases like, you can't avoid being killed by a serial killer. It doesn't say you know where, so you don't know where you get killed. can you avoid it? no..
