If by "the future" we mean this country's future or the planet's future, then count me in. If it's my future, I suppose it would depend on how wonderful or devastating it was.

The stock market so I could make a fortune. Just don't tell me when I'm going to die or how.

Sure. I think I already know much of what is to come, from just having lived a long time.

Yes. Because there is a perfect time to leave a decaying world, and I'd like to know that minute. I plan to shove cheesecake in my mouth for the hours leading up to that moment.

By knowing the future, I would be able to prevent some tragedies, (if possible) and allow myself to emotionally and physically prepare myself for what is inevitable.

I think it would be "cool." I don't think that I would be able to change MAJOR turning points in history. I couldn't save JFK, because it was a pivotable event

No. We need to live in the moment. Knowing the future holds negative things as well as positives, it would just feed the need to worry.

Each day brings enough worry of its own. To borrow from tomorrow is an invitation to be overwhelmed and discouraged.

I'm 77 yo and I live life as full as I can. Makes me no difference if I die tomorrow. My wife and family would argue with that.
