Like drowning in a firetruck’s hose.

Pen me in for going out in a blaze of glory.

I would like to die on the upstroke so that I get one more coming down.

Regardless of how I die I would rather be remembered for who I was and what I did than how I died.
(The exception of course would me to die a hero which would rock.)

I want to die in a flurry of passion.

Sunybunny's avatar

um, blaze of glory, on the upstroke, and in a flurry of passion don’t really answer the question,nor does something about being remembered, just saying.

Call me boring, but I would like to go peacefully. I’m not just considering myself – it think sometimes, that’s easier on those that survive your death. children – husband.

I’ve seen too many people die, some in very ironic situations. I’ll go with peaceful, for that very reason.

I’d rather die doing something extremely crazy.

I don’t care. It isn’t like I get a choice.

Not at all.

@Sunybunny . . .I want to die fucking my wife while I am on top. As I reach the apex of my cock stroke I want to suffer a massive heart attack that kills me instantaneously. As my lifeless body falls back to Earth my still shocked and hard cock gets one last posthumous stroke.

I think that’s pretty fucking dramatic.

@Blondesjon now that’s an answer! lurve!

Peacefully. I don’t want people to remember me for the way I die. I don’t want my death to be some story to chuckle at. I just want to be with the ones I love.

As I climax, Blondesjon’s lifeless body falls on top of me and I realize that he has passed on. I die of a broken heart.

cak's avatar

@jonsblond Hmm…that could be quite the interesting obituary.

Blondesjon's avatar

@cak . . .Oh God! The kids would be mortified every time they had to tell the story at the funeral.

That, coupled with my request to have Baby Got Back played in a continuous loop at my visitation, would be the funniest, posthumous joke ever.

Can’t I die peacefully, ironically, AND dramatically?

augustlan's avatar

I’m with @shadling21. And while laughing.

I want to die peacefully in my sleep, like my Grandpa; not screaming, like the people in the back seat of his car. someone had to say it, it might as well be me.

btko's avatar

Any of the above as long as it’s painlessly.

dalepetrie's avatar

@btko – dammit, you stole my answer. Only thing I’d add is for me to die dramatically or ironically would be wasted on me…I’d be too dead to enjoy it…I’d rather see someone else die ironically or dramatically…would be a lot more fun for me.

Jeruba's avatar

I intend to die laughing.

Lettuce's avatar

Definitely dramatically. If my life is ending then I might as well try and make everyone else’s interesting with some good gossip!

Darwin's avatar

Peacefully and painlessly, but I doubt I will have much control over the situation. It happens how it happens.

Simone_De_Beauvoir's avatar

I don’t care as long as it’s with my love

wundayatta's avatar

If it’s all the same with you, I’d rather not have to choose.

Bluefreedom's avatar

I’d like to die peacefully and in my sleep without the irony or drama. If that’s a possibility, pencil me in for that when it comes time for me to give up the ghost.

orionid's avatar

I’d want to be mummified and put into a coffin,then have resin poured over me! When it sets hard,the lid would be screwed down,and then the coffin would be lowered into a pit,which in turn would be filled with cement! :-)
