How do you think you'll die?

This question kept me awake last night.

by Anonymousreply 104/07/2013

By obsessing about how I am going to die, giving Karma the motivation to do me in early.

by Anonymousreply 204/07/2013

I'll just be sitting and reading, or standing and cooking, and away I'll slip.

In the middle of a really long, noisy fart.

And did you come to any conclusions?

On a sweet, sweet morphine drip if I am lucky.

If I'm honest with myself, I think I'll have to take my own life at some point. My partner is 10 years older than I, don't have children or close family and I know once I stop working I'll be quite poor and I hope to have some social security and savings enough - and a home to sell - to arrange some type of reasonable living arrangement. I think at the rate things are going with the Ayn Rand loving republic, I don't expect anyone is going to be there to care for me if I can't afford to pay them.

I have a feeling that I won't die. I saw on sxephil this week that this guy is trying to invent a robot in which to store our brain so that we will live for all of eternity. I wouldn't mind.

by Anonymousreply 1304/07/2013

R13 the brain can't keep rebuilding itself forever.

I will probably die quickly of some heart attack or stroke. Maybe liver failure. Possibly ripped apart and eaten by starving Americans when society breaks down.

If posters here have any say in it there will be a rash of grease fire deaths in the future.

by Anonymousreply 1704/07/2013

[17] I have burned my kitchen down TWICE in 8 years. Once, I returned late at night from a trip, felt an overwhelming desire for some fresh beignets(New Orleans native), took my Ambien, lit the fire under the pot full of grease. Well you can guess the rest. Second time, I felt an uncontrollable craving for some fried green tomatoes. See above.

So I'd say, definitely a grease fire.

by Anonymousreply 1804/07/2013

I came close once, when the black death hit London in 1603, but I got better.

Something I took, because I've not been sick a day since, come to think about it.

How I'll die or how you'll die?

You don't even know me. Why would that keep you awake all night?

by Anonymousreply 2104/07/2013

Intentional overdose.

Cirrhosis or ennui. Or perhaps both.

I would not have minded that Mayan prophecy thing last December.

Or if Earth receives a big comet strike.

Or if a viral pandemic sweeps the globe.

See the pattern? -- I die along with millions of others.

I will drop the moment something good happens to me, for once in my life. Ten minutes after winning the lottery, or the day after marrying wealthy.

Better question: If you knew exactly WHEN you were going to die, would you live your life any differently?

by Anonymousreply 3104/07/2013

to R31, totally. But without knowing the time I can't say how exactly.

Odds are from a heart attack.

by Anonymousreply 5104/08/2013

I'm pretty sure it won't be the way I feared when I was in my 20's; a homeless, toothless, crackwhore giving gummers for $5 and being beaten to death by some trick

Probably won't be the death I feared in my 30's; liver disease, hooked up to a million machines wasting time and resources on my slow suicide

Probably won't be the death I feared in my 40's; a heart attack from eating badly while I drugged and drank.

So I figure it will be when I finally decide to get my deviated septum fixed and everyone will assume I died of vanity. I could handle that, but for some reason I'm TERRIFIED that I'll die sitting on the toilet. On second thought I'll most likely die sitting on the toilet the day after I get my done. Yup, that'll be the way

by Anonymousreply 5204/08/2013

r31, it would make all the difference in the world because I'd know how to budget my money. For instance, if I knew I was going to die instantly in a car accident in twenty years, I could give a month's noticed to my employers and enjoy twenty years of low-budget bliss on my life savings.

On the operating table, where my father and one of my grandfathers died, and where I nearly bled out the last time I had surgery.

by Anonymousreply 5404/09/2013

I have a feeling I'll live to a ripe old age, alone, after having to watch all my loved ones pass. So far, I've lost my Mom, Dad, grandparents and now my sister, who is 10 months older than me at 45 yo, has lung cancer, (with a brain lesion just found on her frontal lobe) and the outlook isn't promising.

I really can't see a point of living without family but I don't think I'd be able to off myself. I can only hope our shitty genetics don't skip me.

by Anonymousreply 5504/09/2013

I hope to die in a motorcycle accident. I almost did a few years ago, but I'm (mostly) OK now. Still, I love to ride and I would love to die quickly doing the thing I love the most.

by Anonymousreply 5604/09/2013

Dying by shit actually happens. My next-door neighbor growing up had some kind of terminal cancer and was in the hospital. She literally died in the middle of taking a shit. Thanks for leaving us with a great story, R!

R25, is that you, Openly Lu?

by Anonymousreply 5704/09/2013

R10, I feel the SAME WAY. Except my partner is 22 years older than me and we don't own a house(but might in a few years if we do some financial finagling).

I'm not surprised how many people, like me, imagine we'll kill ourselves someday. Even though life is great now, I see the writing on the wall.

So the real answer to the posed question? Gosh, I don't know, there are so many choices...

I always imagine with a razor. I used to imagine hemlock but heard it's extremely painful. Surely we'll come up with some painless euthanasia available to the masses by then. After all, we'll need to cull the herd, so society will be more open to getting rid of the poor.

by Anonymousreply 5804/09/2013

Probably cancer since both my parents had cancer...or by my own hand if I don't get a job soon.

I'd like to choose my own way and my own time.

Otherwise, probably heart attack or stroke.
