This thread is kinda fun (in a very morbid way, I must admit). So, how do you think you'll kick the bucket? Personally, I'll be surprised if I make it past the heart attack I plan on having at age 42. My friend Seth has roughly 5 years and 2 months before he expires in a car wreck (you can ask him, he'll tell you so).

Oh man danlo. That is one hell of a way to go. Riding the lightning, indeed!

And Sheol, I guess it counts. Nice plan, by the way. Cool

I plan on transferring my brain into the body of a man-eating robot when I hit 40. The robot, naturally, will then live forever so looks like I wont be seeing any of you guys in hell.

Hey that was my plan to. Only I had planned to be captured by the Russians and forced to design killer robot drones for war. But then I would eventually break out and then do the robot thingy.

Cancer.

My Dad had it. His mother died from it. Ten of his brothers and sisters died from it, too. Sad

Kind of reminds me of the Richard Prior bit where he mentions a man who died while making love. He then said, "Now if everyone here had a choice, would you go like that or die getting hit by a bus? I'd be in that long m************ line!"

I too plan to live forever, or die trying. I'm not really bothered with the thought though. I'd prefer a relatively painless death if it can be managed, but beyond that, I don't particularly care.

Gunslingers idea is the best one I think.

Congestive heart failure, most likely.


Most guys want to die like Ghengis Khan, but not me.


I'd rather die suddenly and painlessly.

I'm sure it was the manner, not any one woman....... Laughing

cheval's answer sums it up for me as well.

Members here who are fortunate to have (the proverbial) loving family may find that answer incomprehensible, but it needs to be understood that there must be a respectable number of loners and misfits (outcast unclean!) here at the Watch who, when they die, likely won't be surrounded by attentive, loving ones. That's life.

How do I want to die? Without pain, and at a time and place of my choosing. Also, it would be nice to die knowing I had accomplished something meaningful in my life, defined by me as meaningful, not by people who just want to make me feel better.

How do I think I'll die? With some degree of pain, and likely not at an ideal time of my choosing. And I could die without achieving what I want to achieve in my life.

Sound depressing? Well, I can hope for some sense of solitary dignity in my passing. Dying alone, I can pretend I'm an Unfettered One: unloved and unmourned perhaps, but at the same time free of clutter in his life.
