Of course, it really isn't up to any of us. But if you had to choose, how would you like to go? If I had to choose mine, I think Moses' death was pretty cool. God told him, go up to this mountain and die there. And he simply did that. He even had a nice view of the land flowing with milk and money before he gave up. That's some cool stuff.
OK, first of, I dont want to die. Period. Second, ...nice view? like...nah nah na na na...the land of milk and honey you cant get into cuz YOU MESSED UP!!!! no thank you!!
I think that a cool death would be where I self-destruct like the Predator, like when Arnold kicks his alien butt in an epic fight: I go down and so do you! (Add spooky Predator sound byte laughter here please). Sore losers rule!
I have already died three times.
1- I was a blacksmith and a horse kicked me in the head while I was shoeing him, out fast.
2- In WWl my parashoot didn't open, splat.
3- While I was shining George Washington's shoes (he was in them) a shot rang out intended for him. I had the misfortune of standing up.
In a blaze of glory!
Nahhh...Just as long as its painless and fast will do fine.
For many years, I had my own death planned in detail. I'd be living alone in a remote mountain cabin. When it was time, I'd hook up a temperature sensor to my body and shuffle off the mortal coil. As the body cooled, the sensor would spark a massive fire (fuel preset of course), awesomely incinerating both cabin and body.
This would take place in deep winter with plenty of snow to assure the fire would not spread beyond the cabin's immediate vicinity. Self cremation, self checkout, and the rest of the world could go whistle.
As of today, though, that doesn't look all that workable--since I'm living in the desert surrounded by high-fire-danger vegetation, not to mention a wife, 3 cats, and a gecko. Best laid plans of mice and men and all that...
I always thought being strafed by laser fire while doing the trench run on the Death Star in an X-Wing fighter would be the coolest way to die.
Two things about dying.
1. I do not want to be conciously there when it happens, and 2. I would like to die in my sleep.
wow you got your wish..... well done....... Rest In Peace.
u lived by your conviction and died the way u want to...earnest , i would always miss u...
Darkside, your idea (the Trench Run) isn't bad at all! Have to admit I slightly prefer the old George S. Patton quote though--if I've got it right, something like:
"You don't want to die for your country. You want to make the other poor bastard die for HIS country."
So a lot of people wanna go in their sleep. Easy and painless, huh.
I actually want to observe the whole thing - although I'm in no rush. The near-death-experiences I've read about are fascinating!
I want to revise mine so I'm sleeping while wild raccoons devour me.
what a question........ peacefully and with the people I love around me.
actually, too depressing, don't feel like thinking about it. Am still haunted by that hub I read a couple of weeks ago which said the end of the world is 21st December 2012. As I was putting my boxes into storage for 4 years, was thinking, why am I bothering? We'll all be dead before the 4 years is up.
By the warmth of my charcoal burner next to my bed. Plenty of carbon monoxide makes a cool sleep and painless death. I will be doing it soon at 99-plus. Good bye in advance, Fierycj.
in bed next to my spouse and have enough food out for the cats and dogs and hopefully the kids will already be grown.
How about in a blaze of glory, doing you know what...if you know what I mean? I mean if you have to go, might as well go happy!
I would be careful, you look awfully happy in your avatar!
My luck...I would croak just before the chicken cackled!
I'd like to die prefably better than when I was born:
Not screaming, not confused, not naked.
I want to keel over dead just before I deliver the punch line to one of those long, rambling shaggy-dog type story jokes.
When you die it has to be just as special as when you were born. I absolutely want to die while saving a child in need. I always saw myself seeing a little one in the road playing as a speeding car whips by. With seconds to act I scoop the child and throw them to safety just as the car blasts me into the heavens. Then I meet the lord and my grandpa upstairs and we all look down at a truely special moment. It would help the grieving aspect too. If my family knew I died doing a selfless act it would make them proud.
Either peacefully and painlessly in my sleep or in a blaze of glory doing something heroic.
Just to die in my sleep of natural causes....not while walking out one day and a huge frozen piece of pissy poo strikes me on the head or trying to curl one out on the toilet...it worked for Elvis, but not me!
I would like to be shot in the head by the jealous husband of the 22 year old woman I made love to on my 95th birthday. I would then like to be ground up into cat food.
At Mach 2.2...or better! Like Dale Earnhardt (at approx. 200 mph)...here one sec and in the fight...Gone the next...in a twinkling of an eye!
mine involves three separate injections (in sequential order):
1. Sodium thiopental: ultra-short action barbiturate, an anesthetic agent capable of rendering unconsciousness in a few seconds.
2. Pancuronium: non-depolarizing muscle relaxant, causes complete, fast and sustained paralysis of the skeletal striated muscles, including the diaphragm and the rest of the respiratory muscles; this would eventually cause death by asphyxiation.
3. Potassium chloride: stops the heart, and thus causes death by cardiac arrest.
just kidding. But I don't even want to know when I die.
I said before that I'm not going to die...I'm going to live forever. But if I do have to die, I guess I would prefer that it happen on camera with fierycj filming it! I could be one of the extras in a scene where a bunch of innocent by-standers go out in a blaze of machine gun fire or something!
Okay, I've given this some thought. Hubby and I are returning home from an awesome vacation, and we die together from carbon monoxide in the car. No other cars are involved when we die and veer off the highway, so no one else is hurt or killed.
I almost drowned once. I remember it as if I was going to sleep. Very peaceful. In fact, I was angry when I got pulled from the water! If I could chose how I died, it would be by drowning. I just want to live long enough to get my 16yr.old boy out of college and on his own! By then, I should be ready!
"When I die, I'd like to go like my grandfather did -- peacefully, in his sleep. Not yelling and screaming like the passengers in his car."

DIYWeddingPlanner, 93, reknowned Hubpages author and wedding planner, was found dead today in the arms of her 22 year old lover holding a bottle of Captain Morgan's and wearing nothing but a pair of her signature 5 inch stilletos.

Also dead was her 22 year old lover.
It was noted that both died with a smile still on their faces.

If you could choose, how would you die?

Everyone has someone in mind whom he/she wants to meet desperately. For some it will be long lost friend, while for some it may be a forgotten love. Some may want to meet someone to clear any misunderstanding while some may want to meet his/her biggest foe to settle an old account!For me it is a...

Do people know when they are going to die before they die?Recently a community leader died 'suddenly'. During the week since her death I have talked with individuals who was told by the deceased that she was 'dying' or that her life work had ended and she was going home. Of course nobody paid...

I've read about many different theories about death and what happens. It is the main question that is in the back of everyone's mind. It's very difficult to picture it or to question the point of existence. The fact that we are here is a miracle in itself, who says that some sort of afterlife isn't...

How would you wish to die?Death is not the opposite of life, it is a part of it. At some point in our lives, all of us consider death. We know we have to die someday. Do you ever think how you want to die?
by David Livermore 4 years ago
Are you worried about what happens after you die?I have two fears for when I die: I'll basically cease to exist, have no consciousness, etc. Or, that there is an afterlife and I'll learn the meaning of life, which could be devastating if I handled life wrong!
