    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.

      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.

    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...big_smile

    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.

    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."

    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.

    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.

    buycullaposted 9 years ago

    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!  lol

    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!

    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. Rescue squads commented on how amazing DIY looked considering her advanced years, due to her discovery of the lost Fountain of Youth in her South Carolina backyard.  Also dead was her 22 year old lover. 

    It was noted that both died with a smile still on their faces.
