If I had to choose a way to die it would probably be through nitrogen asphyxiation.  This is when you breathe in nothing but nitrogen and you die from having too little oxygen.  The thing is, since 70% of the atmosphere is made of nitrogen, breathing the stuff in doesn't cause any kind of pain or anything, your body does it all the time.  You just end up passing out and dying.  You don't even realize anything is wrong with you or anything, you just black out.

Wow, that makes death sound like taking a nap.  On the other end of the specturm, I had a friend who wanted to be eaten by sharks.  She wanted to go in an exciting way -- no boring asphyxiation there.

What about being instantly vaporized in a nuclear explosion?

That might be good, assuming you did not see it coming.  I really don't want to know that I'm going to die.  Most of the fear of death is purely psychological.

I guess if you are outside watching your dog take a dump in the yard and a mushroom cloud engulfs you while you're concentrating on your dog, then that might be all right.

Also, the nitrogen thing was something I read in National Review years and years ago, they were promoting it as a humane way to execute criminals.

I think I would fight a bear to the death.  That would be hardcore!

To your death, apparently.  Sounds more painful than sharks.

No, to our deaths.  I would activate the nuclear device on my fore-arm right before the bear rips my arms off and gnaws on my skull.

Would you rather be torn apart by a ravenously hungry bear or a bear that you so happened to piss off?

No.

I've got a new question:

Would you rather cut off an arm or a leg, assuming you had to lose one of them?

Depends.  If it was left side, I wouldn't mind a lost arm.  If it was right side, definately my leg.

Hrm.  Do I get to eat it?  If I get to eat it, I'd go with my leg.  But I'm not really sure about which one.  For some reason I'm incredibly fond of my left foot, but I'm also incredibly fond of my right knee.  But my right foot is a complete jackass, and my left knee seemingly lacks personality.  That or its just very quite.  Or stupid. Its possible that its stupid.
Actually. Arms aren't an option.  I require them to type.

Of course you get to eat it!  In fact, you could eat your leg right now.  What's stopping you? Tongue

I need them to walk. That, and the pain.
Mind you, if I stopped feeling pain and no longer needed to walk, I would so be eating my legs.  (Not all at once though.  Make it last over time. Mmm.)
