      Which would you choose?

      If you were going to die quickly (i.e. not from disease or old age), would you rather be gone before you knew what hit you, or see it coming and have a moment to make your peace with it?

      Why? Discuss.

      I think see it coming, because then I'd get to experience that 'I am going to die,' feeling. Otherwise I'd never know I was dead, and it's a once in a lifetime opportunity I guess!

      Ooh, their breath is warm
      And they smell like sleep
      And they say they take me home
      Like poppies heavy with seed
      They take me deeper and deeper

      Everything works out in the end, sometimes even badly.

      That highly depends on the way I am going to die.

      I would like to see it coming. I used to think like a few other people I've spoken to about this before. I thought death was a scary experience and I wanted to be asleep when it happened, so that I wouldn't have to go through all the pain and fear. But after thinking a little more on it quite a while ago, I realised I would rather be consciously aware the entire time. I don't believe in any god, I don't believe in heaven, I don't believe in spirits/souls, I don't believe in any kind of afterlife. In my view, this is the only life I'll ever have, and so in my final moments, I'd like to be able to say goodbye to the world.

      I'd make sure I go out while making a funny face or posted in an odd position.

      If I knew I was going to die that very day, I'd walk into a police precinct with a fake bomb strapped to my chest. Then I'd push the button and only glitter would shoot out, as well as a bunch of scrap pieces of paper saying something really positive and inspiring. I'd die in a hail of gunfire and after several silent moments one of the officers would finally break down and cry.

      What happens if they didn't shoot when you pressed the bomb?

      Jim Morrison: “I wouldn't mind dying in a plane crash. It'd be a good way to go. I don't want to die in my sleep, or of old age, or OD...I want to feel what it's like. I want to taste it, hear it, smell it. Death is only going to happen to you once; I don't want to miss it.”

      I'd like to see it coming, just so I could get out one of those awesome last lines. Like '"Oh hell, not again" *squish*', or something.

      April Ryan is my friend,
      Every sorrow she can mend.
      When i visit her dark realm,
      Does it simply overwhelm.

      Like Carrot, it depends entirely on how I'm to die. If it's a choice: Die in you sleep or while being sawn in half; I'd definitely choose to die in my sleep

      ya that worked well for him
      From my rotting body,
      flowers shall grow
      and I am in them
      and that is eternity.
