I said drown, but I'd rather just die in my sleep  :|

Drowning is probably the worst in my opinion since your lungs literally burst.  :lol:

I didn't see a suffocation choice, so I chose the next best thing.

Actually, the lungs themselves do not burst. The tiny capillaries sometimes do from the exertion or struggle to hold one's breath while still moving, but the lungs themselves do not burst. Also, my father is a survivor of drowning. From what he describes, it's a very pleasant experience once your lungs force you to inhale the water. At that point, you cease to have the urge to breathe, the lack of oxygen causes the panic to subside, and you float in the water, with nothing but a peaceful feeling, and the notion that "Hey, this isn't so bad." in your mind; then you lose consciousness. In fact, my old man actually fought his rescuers when they grabbed him off the bottom of the pond he'd gone down in - the experience was that peaceful and desirable to him.

That has to be the most interesting thing I've heard in awhile. Who knew drowning could be peaceful!    :-o

How about hypothermia?  I've heard it's supposed to be a nice way to die, too.  Too cold, though.  I like warmth. :-)

It surprised me to know that drowning could be peaceful

None of the choices look good to me, out of those I guess I would choose....Being shot


Personally I would rather go out of this world the same way I came in  :-D

Drowning or poison would be my first picks. They're both so pretty in their own way.

(warning: I have severely weird views on death)

I chose to be ripped to death, because I can't imagine a death more worthy of honor than being shredded to a million teensy-weensy little pieces by a swarm of enemies toting various slashy, hacky, slicey, choppy things. :-D

I personally think some deaths can be beautiful, romantic, or artistic. It's a strange view I'm told.

Beautiful? Artistic? Pfft.
Noble, valiant, honorable, and glorious maybe, but beautiful? I don't really consider becoming fodder for Mother Morríghan's crows beautiful. Maybe I'm just crazy. :-P

Perhaps. A romanticized death is certainly plausible. I disagree that it is strange, death in literature, art, movies...etc. could be viewed as a grand thing. Such as when a villain dies or when a warrior dies a "warrior's death". You get the idea.  :wink:

So I'm not alone in my thinking. That's a relief.

We're both weird! Yay. High five!....if I can find one...
