How would you like to die?

swimmerguy's picture

Ok, this is morbid as all hell, but I was wondering: If you were going to die, sometime in like the next week or so, and you could choose every single aspect of your death, how, when, where would you like it to happen?

For me, I think it would probably be on Thursday, as I'm scootering back from swimming, as I usually do, in the pitch black wearing a black shirt, dark blue pants, and a black coat along a busy highway.
Then, as I'm crossing the road, a Krazee car veering down, a drunk driver, shines it's headlights on me. I swerve to avoid, but, at the same time, I lean into it just a little bit, with maybe even a little eagerness.
And this car is going FAST.
It POUNDS my hip, and I fall off my scooter and roll up the wind shield, and as I fall off the car, I fall into the other lane where I get struck again.
Here, I'm mortally injured, and lying on the blacktop while the people get out of their cars and start running over, I look down the road, then I look up into the dark sky and close my eyes, for the last time.

Teachers inform students the next day, and Coach informs swim team at practice on Friday, and there's an empty seat and lane for a day, until the weekend comes.

Now, this is like so freaking morbid, but sometimes as I cross the dark road, I imagine this, like a film clip run in high speed.
Creepy.

shot. by homophobes. and not like even drunk ones, just ppl in there right minds pressing a gun to my temple and shotting from pure malice.
i choose this because hopeful it would cause a national outry

More people have been slaughtered in the name of religion than for any other single reason. That, my friends, that is true perversion.

I'd like to be shot, as quickly and as painlessly as possible. The idea of being a martyr... if it helps a cause then so be it.

Well, first I'd go around making out with everybody I wanted to kiss but never got the chance to and see if I could get laid.

Mental wounds not healing, driving me insane, i'm goin' off the rails on a crazy train- the ozzman

First off, I love the

First off, I love the imagined death you set out, it's pretty.

I would die... ideally? A blurry, beautiful drug overdose with some anonymous lover. So high I wouldn't even know what's happening. I'd go downtown, to some bar, pop a pill, meet some beautiful boy, he's kind, pop a few more, I'm back at his place, he kisses my neck, I feel nothing but kiss him back, for once I feel sort-of okay, take a few more pills, he fucks me, I'm bored, my vision falters, my stomach feels ill, he's asleep, I look out the window, there's a prostitute, I go to the bathroom, vomit.

Oblivion.

hmmmmm, i'd say, from an odd accident involving a b/f with a prince albert piercing, and somehow the ring getting caught on my uvula, thus causing me to choke to death....that or dying from sleep apnea....

Well...

Unfortunate indeed would be the guy who had a dead person stuck on his prince albert piercing.

ok... yes it would be

ok... yes it would be unfortunate for him...but i went with this type of death because 1) it would totally irratate all of the bullys in my middle and high school who tended to call me__________ (proformer of fellatio) on a regular basis....and 2)to prove that i have a sense of humour even after i'm dead....

So... Forgotten By The Weekend?

And... no memorial service? And your seat isn't required to remain vacant... at least to the end of term?

And what about China mournfully crying his heart out for days on end... never having had the courage to admit his secret affection?

Morbid? Absolutely!

Um... I'd like to live until a hundred and five and have lead a fulfilled life, get caught in a freak time machine accident, and die peacefully of old age next week.

Um... Yeah. I have stuff to get done. More stuff than I can do in a week. Death is not an option. :P

I plan to live as long as I

I plan to live as long as I possibly can, but if I were to die next week... I would fall from a high place, like Machu Picchu or the Grand Canyon. Like, REALLY high. Standing in high places, I can't help but have visions of myself falling from them, and as much as I want to avoid dying, the falling part would be really amazing, and the longer that lasted the better. (Also the more chance I would have of dying of fear before hitting the ground, which would be the worst part of the ordeal, I have no doubt.)
I would want them to be unable to reach my body, but to know where it is so my family isn't tormented by not knowing. There would be a blurry video by a tourist of where I fell, or something. It would have been an accident, a slip without a chance to correct my footing. And the last thing I would have written in my diary would, miraculously, have been something reassuring, preferably demonstrating my happy state of mind.
To sum up: to feel like flying, to remove the necessity for a funeral, to have emotional loose ends tied up as best as possible, would be ideal.

Yours is neat, although it sounds horribly painful. Please wear light/reflective clothes and be careful crossing the street, we would miss you here.

like grace hughen, i like

like grace hughen, i like the idea of falling off a cliff ("like" being a relatively morbid term)... intentionally. not jumping, not slipping... just finding a high place (guaranteed to kill on impact or before) and letting myself relax into the thin air. although this might be a fantasy i have (like sky jumping) for a photograph. of course, in that sense, i'd make sure i'd land safely.

id have to say that id, for lack of a better word, want to die doing somthing i love. i have been riding horses since i was 3 so probably with or on my horse. i wouldnt want to be killed by my horse like being stepped or rolled on but if i just naturally died on my horse, i think that would be the way i would "want" to die.
