I'm not trying to be morbid or anything, but what do you think would be the worst way to die? We all will have to go someday, but some ways are obviously more dignified and less painful than others.

My top three:

Burning to death

Being mauled and eaten alive by a bear

Being trapped on a doomed airliner and knowing that you are going to crash

I'm pretty sure you've all thought about it, so how about it?

I still think plane crashes are the worst way to die, there aren't many other accidents as violent and gruesome as planes crashing.

The thought of dying in a plane crash does not bother me, because ultimately your demise is very quick. But things like drowning, being burned alive, mauled by an animal as someone said to me are the worst ways to die. If for some reason I get shot, I want it in the head or heart, so it's quick. Not in the gut, where a lot of internal damage could be done, and the death would then be slow.

Being buried alive

Being put in a barrel of boiling oil and then rolled down a hill.

Asthma attack



I used to think the brain is the most fascinating part of my body. But, hey, who is telling me that?

Being stabbed to death multiple times would rank high in violent deaths, you would feel that you are being stabbed repeatedly knowing that you're dying while being in unbearable pain.

How about skydiving and your parachute doesn't deploy? You'd have a relatively long time to reflect on your life and make your peace with G-d on that one.

AC320,

True...but you would probably die in mid-air instead of hitting the ground.

Being eaten by Crocs and bears and other violent stuff would be terrible too.

Actually, a guy here in Denmark came across what I'd say was the most worst way to die:
He was on one of these free-fall type of rides (where you're pulled up in the air, and then go down fast, VERY fast!). Anyway, apparently he was a bit *ahem* fat, and the safety bar was unable to close completely.

Anyway, at about 100 feet, and this is what some witnesses have told the police, he fell out of his seat, dropped the 100 feet to the ground, hit the engine case, and finally fell on the fence that surrounded the ride, thus being spiked to death  Wow!

Being captured by Islamic terrorists, being tortured and having your throat cut while being filmed seems like a pretty bad way to go. If I had my choice it would be while doing my job and dying quickly in a crash.

Getting hit head-on by a speeding train (I was on an Amtrak train a few years back when a guy decided to "end it all"--just looking at the bloodied nose of the P42 locomotive made me sick).

Nerve gas (up there with suffocation or asthma, but much worse)

How about getting "intimately familiar" with the internals of a jet engine? On the gruesome scale it gets pretty high marks...

I'd better stop-I'm scaring myself...

To be honest, suffocating and drowning doesn't bother me, as its more awkward than painful. Being stabbed, or in particular, throat cut, is far more of a bad way to go  Sad.

Of course, I can think of lots of ways, just give me time  Smokin cool

Dying in your sleep. I hate the idea of just going to sleep and not waking up. I would want to know.


BTW, if your 'chute didn't open in a skydive, you likely WOULDN'T die on the way down. You'd just black out.

Falling down an elevator shaft of a 100-story flaming building and on the way down having a stroke, getting stabbed, drowned, being eaten alive by rabid elevator monkeys that have locked on to your jugular vein, and then finally landing on a family of excitable porcupines.

To be killed in a train or a car crash is far more horrible than to be killed in a plane crash... and i think the worst way to die is to be killed in a car accident..
its stupid, and bloody..

If your 'chute didn't open, wouldn't you just pull the other cord and let the emergency 'chute hande things?

Or are we saying that one's bust too?

Burning, Bleeding to death, Drowning, being eaten all bad.

I'd prefer to die in a plance crash if it goes quich. The worst way reall is when you are being murdered/executed and you know it. When death is not inevitable by nature but being inflicted by a person.

Most plane crashes go quick...but I think one of the worst ways to die would be in the AS MD-80 crash...falling from 18000 ft knowing youre going to die...like being in a falling elevator only much worse. Also...I head a story of a girl who fell into the machine area of a roller coaster and was shoved through a 6"X10" hole...

Hmm the thought of Having to make the choice of staying in a burning building 1000 feet above ground or jump to the streets below sounds like a pretty bad situation. The worst part about it would be making the way up to the ledge and letting go. Afte that, I am sure you would black out and that would be that.
