This seems flawed. If I find out the time of my death, and it's in 50 years, what happens if I go put a 12 gauge shotgun to my temple and pull the trigger? Would I just remain in a vegetative state for 50 years? Or would the gun be unable to fire? What if I jump out of an airplane (without a parachute, of course) into Zimbabwe, and go find Robert Mugabe and beat him to death while hundreds of soldiers shoot at me? Would all of their guns jam?
