  • I was tempted to go with burn to death. Nociceptors are one of the first things to go.

  • Your body would go numb at some point and you wouldn't feel any more pain

  • Death by freezing is actually one of the more peaceful ways to die. At first I would imagine the stinging sensation would hurt a lot but eventually you would go numb while still being conscious and could contemplate your end and make peace with God or what have you. Eventually you would simply fall asleep due to the lowering temperature in your body and eventually die in peace. Unless of course we are talking about EXTREME COLD downwards of -200 Fahrenheit below in cases such as that you would die in 2 minutes or less due to your blood crystallizing like a million needles stabbing you inside as your lungs freeze completely with one breath.

Burning to death would be a much quicker and more severe pain, but also a much quicker death. Freezing to death would take much much longer, and despite going numb, any kind of movement would probably invoke pain. Let's also not forget that your limbs would go first, and that would be painful, and slowly it would pass on to the rest of your body until it shut down. Both are painful

Freezing to death sounds awful. The thought of your extremities being in such pain while you slowly die isn't a good thought. I'd rather go as a blazing torch as it would be quicker.
