If you could pick the manner in which you were to die, what would it be?

death - dirt nap,  kicking the bucket, buy the farm, cash in your chips, to expire, the amazing decaying man, worm buffet, the end 

 To die. To expire. To pass on. To perish. To peg out. To push up daisies. To push up posies. To become extinct. Curtains, deceased, Demised, departed And defunct. Dead as a doornail. Dead as a herring. Dead as a mutton. Dead as nits. The last breath. Paying a debt to nature. The big sleep. God's way of saying, "Slow down."

what an interesting subject how we would like to die.. now woldnt we all like to die easy or fast, my firs tand fore most hope is to die painlessly in my sleep, at the same time as my wife....but just incase that sdoesnt happen...... I want to end it fast, something to say i was here too..how about a halo jump to the earth, ubt not just a simple non-parchute splat...im talking, spiralling head first pile driving into the concrete to really make a cratter, helmet first (for safety) , thinned down liek a hawk on approach...striaght 90 degrees inot hte concrete fast, very fst and yes very deadly..maybe hea dfirst spiraling into a large spike...but then the force on the ground wouldnt have such a cratter....yes halo jump....

jump to death - a method employed by the destitute, depressed, desparate segment of our society.
boy sounds almost like you wish to go down in flames. interesting type of response and I appreciate you sharing it with us.

I don't mind, it's the only thing that we can all guarantee will happen to us! I don't really care how I go, just hope that I enjoy my life before I do. I once heard it said in a fantastic way, i cant remember exactly but it was something like; 'I don't want to climb gently into my grave moaning about all the things I missed out on or didn't do. I want to skid into it sideways on a screaming motorbike at 150mph shoutng "F**K ME - what a ride!!" '

motorcycle slide - pertinent to the response I got from my posted discussion and this response had the gusto I long for
you made me laugh. I agree wholeheartedly. the opportunities in this life that can be sooo tiring are what makes it all worthwhile in the end. The idea is to say..We Came, We Saw, We Did, and now we are done! Thanks so much for responding.!

church pews - the setting where people gather to worship, party, praise, sing and tend to heavenly needs
Would be quite nice to die near God's people.

I really haven't thought about that. BUt if I have my way I would like to die in my sleep with no pain or suffering. Just a deep sleep. Kinda like my father did afer he had a stroke. He went in peace.

That would indeed be a good way to go, myself I wish to be in my garden and just drop, expire, take a dirt nap.. My Uncle did that and since he and I share the love of our garden it seems appropriate to me. Thanks for asking. Thanks for sharing!

I too would rather die peacefully in my sleep. I don't think many people would say different.

I would like to die old and peacefully in my sleep. Wouldn't want to suffer, or have anything bad happen to me.
