Describe how you want to die. As in like, what sort of death and settings would make it most peaceful and fulfilling.
"Delete your fvcking sig" -1hard

"primal man had the habit, when he came into contact with fire, of satisfying the infantile desire connected with it, by putting it out with a stream of his urine... Putting out the fire by micturating was therefore a kind of sexual act with a male, an enjoyment of sexual potency in a homosexual competition."

I'd prefer to die naturally in my sleep or something, but if I had to be killed, I'd prefer to be suffocated with nitrogen.

I appear as a lonely old man in a diner, but with the classic badass Clint Eastwood tough old man mentality. A mass shooter arrives. With him: a trained bear. I quickly defeat the mass shooter, but right as I'm about to finish off the bear, a beautiful young woman trips and falls right behind the bear, grabbing it's attention. It swipes at her, but I jump in front of the swipe. The world goes black. I become famous.

Plot twist: I'm immortal. It was all a setup. At my wake, I break out of my slumber causing so much shock that 5 of my mourners have heart attacks. The secret of my immortality revealed, the world wants to know more about me. I spin a sad yarn about how everyone I ever love will die before I do, painting me as a tragic hero. The world celebrates me.

Second plot twist: I'm not immortal. I'm just really tough and woke up at the right time. I go into the woods to fight another bear, and end up eaten. The world just assumes that I vanished but will come back and save them from death one day, like a modern day King arthur. He was just a myth, and so was I! Ha ha! But I become a legend told to generations of children.

I want to die in bed with the woman I love, preferably at the same time, like in the Notebook <3

If I can't have my sappy love death, then I want to die fast - painless - and without any regrets.

However, and this is a BIG however, I actually think that we'll have some form of immortality available to us within the next 40 years, meaning that we might not have to die at all if we don't wish to.

As a very old man, after having lived a long, full and meaningful life, with my family by my side.

I would like to live beyond 95 years.

I don't want to live too long, because it will be depressing to watch myself slowly deteriorate. Also, relief from my regrets and physical ailments is something I expect I'll be looking forward to someday.

My mother didn't want to wait for relief, so at about age 50 she swam into the Atlantic and didn't turn around. I think that's how I'd like to go as well. I don't want to miss it while asleep, I don't want to be drugged or incoherent, I want the full experience and I want to savor every moment of it. I've been waiting my whole life for this moment, why would I waste it?

When my child(ren) is/are sufficiently set up, and I have decided I am more of a burden on others than I am contributing (I doubt I'll ever retire because that would tip the scales too much), then I will park my car by the beach and fold my clothes neatly like my mother did, and start swimming. I'll make sure I have the opportunity to tie up any loose ends I have beforehand, and I won't look at it as suicide as much as that I'm simply trying to cross to the other side.
Beliefs in a nutshell:
- The Ends never justify the Means.
- Objectivity is secondary to subjectivity.
- The War on Drugs is the worst policy in the U.S.
- Most people worship technology as a religion.
- Computers will never become sentient.

Quietly, as if simply going to sleep. I don't need or want eulogies, a wake, a lot of crying or missing me. I just want to, as General MacArthur said, slowly fade away.

I think I'd enjoy being burned at the stake, launched into space or falling to my death.
I want my death to be fun.

Damn dude, that's very courageous on her part (I've got unique views in regards to suicide) but drowning? If I was gonna end my own life I'd do it in a way that was quick and painless, drowning is rough... Your mom has my full respect in regards to her choice of death. I won't comment on the actual suicide though, as I know nothing about your family dynamic. Personally, I was very angry at my own mom when she tried taking her own life, regardless of how courageous I think it is to step into the unknown by their own accord.

I think that's how I'd like to go as well. I don't want to miss it while asleep, I don't want to be drugged or incoherent, I want the full experience and I want to savor every moment of it. I've been waiting my whole life for this moment, why would I waste it?

Arguably I'll be in a state of during but will be able to opt for cryonic preservation just prior to death, to increase my chances of being reanimated. So technically I would like to die by being frozen to death, if I have to die at all.

How do you want to die? When I least expect it and instantly.
It's not your views that divide us, it's what you think my views should be that divides us.

If you think I will give up my rights and forsake social etiquette to make you "FEEL" better you are sadly mistaken

I don't.
The proudest moment of my life was when i traveled a thousand miles for love and brought that love back with me those same thousand miles. Nothing that has ever happened, nor ever will, will ever take that pride away from my heart.

If I were to die I would chose old age.

If it were not by normal causes I would die in combat for freedom.

If it were a suicide I would put a blade on the bottom of my windowsill and I would attach a balloon to each ear. I would then shut the window decapitating myself as my head floats up above the city.

Nobody WANTS to die. But if I had to say, I won't say how I'd want to die because there is no preferable way to die for me, it's dying anyway. However, I would want to live a long happy adventurous life with the person I love, preferably with him present. Holding his hand, or in his arms, with our kids surrounding us making the moment even more bittersweet.

"The Collectivist experiment is thoroughly suited (in appearance at least) to the Capitalist society which it proposes to replace. It works with the existing machinery of Capitalism, talks and thinks in the existing terms of Capitalism, appeals to just those appetites which Capitalism has aroused, and ridicules as fantastic and unheard-of just those things in society the memory of which Capitalism has killed among men wherever the blight of it has spread."
