Clever People Reveal How'd They'd Trick A Genie Into Granting Them Immortality

It happens in the movies why oh why can't it happen in real life? Wouldn't we all love a Genie who lives in a magic lamp; whose life goal is to make our every whim a reality? Of course we're a greedy group and the usual 3 wishes are no where near enough to satisfy even the best of us. One of life's greatest fascinations in life is the belief that immortality is possible. To be able to still be standing after the dust of life settles with roaches, Keith Richards and Cher. But what if that wish wasn't a direct option? How do we make it one?

Redditor _Noak_Andreasson wanted to know what tricks people would pull to enhance their lives by asking... A genie grants you immortality under the condition you choose one possible but improbable way you can be killed. What is your immortality loophole? _You'll learn that people are weird.

HIT ALL THE RIGHT KEYS!

Having a piano dropped on me. If I must die, it will at least have a comical effect.

THOUGHTS?

In a mine shaft. That way you would be A flat miner.

EnderSir

That'd B major injury.

BON JOVI'S IDEA WAS BETTER...

Shot through the heart with a piece of mistletoe by a blind man who was tricked into it. At least I'd know my killer would know Norse mythology.

AIM HIGHER...

Getting shot by an arrow in the heel. It may not have worked out well for Achilles, but in 2018, who the heck is gonna come at me with a bow and arrow?

CONTROLLING AND SEVERE.

Suicide of course.

I'm the captain of my soul.

holybad

AND THIS IDEA?

It has to be! some other suggestions ITT are impractically hard, after 600 years if you get bored,you don't want to get stuck here forever, waiting for the heat death of the universe.

lemmings121

Suicide and accidents with fault aren't the same thing.

Like a Darwin winner wouldn't be considered to have committed suicide.

LIVE IN PEACE FRIEND, DON'T BE SO MORBID.

I have to purposely and willfully shoot myself in the head of my own volition with no outside influence or someone trying to force me to.

MAKE IT LEGENDARY!

That two people that don't know each other that happen to have the same name stab me directly in the heart with a blade made of bone one second after midnight on Friday the 13th while saying my name backwards. Even if it happened I would be super impressed and accept it.

WEIRD AL SHOULD ALWAYS BE INVOLVED.

Crushed by a 650 lb albino woman named Zacharia on the third thursday of a 31 day month during a leap year while a choir of octogenarians do a cover of Weird Al's greatest hits.

THE AVENGERS CAN'T SAVE YOU...

Being killed by Ultron is impossible. Ultron is a character from a comic book. Comic book characters can't kill you.

-OR-

Being killed by a black hole is possible, though the probability is incredibly tiny for a few billion years.

THERE'S ALWAYS WWIII....

Being killed by a veteran of WWII is possible. In a hundred years that will be impossible. It comes down to whether or not the type of death must be possible at all times.

EVERYTHING AND ANYTHING!

The simple answer to this question, obviously, is to stack so many qualifiers together that the probability goes to zero. But, honestly, that's not fun.

So, I choose that I will be killed by the act of completing everything I've wanted to do in life.

MrAcurite

THE RESPONSE?

We got a genius right here.

JimmyMadeMeCry

But then what if you want to die? Then you'd be immortal, as that's something that you want to do but can't because you haven't done everything you want to do yet.

NotSuspicious_

WHY MAKE IT BRUTAL?

I have to fall from a bridge while on fire. You can't make it too difficult because it would kind of suck living for an eternity.

GO SKY HIGH!

I can only die at the top of mount Everest. Climb Mount Everest!

HATA111

A FEW POINTS...

Yeah no, Everest isn't even the deadliest mountain, IIRC the death rate for climbing K2 is like 25%.

gtr427

Uh... "plane crashes into top of Mt Everest... immortal dies but no other passengers suffered injury."

LunaticFringe75

THAT'S NO FUN...

I die when all of Reddit goes an entire day without a repost...

... welcome to immortality...

I PREFER CARROTS...

i have to be struck by exactly 32 peas that have come from 13 different countries that have been frozen for exactly 63 minutes on the 3rd Tuesday of the month.

CREEPY...

After I take out (murder or date) at least 50% of the population.

REACTIONS?

Calm down Thanos.

JJST GO ON AND ON AND ON....

I would have to be the last living human in order to die. Arguably, I would no longer desire to be immortal if I were the only one left...although maybe that's still too late for sanity.

ALL'S WELL THAT ENDS WELL...

Can only be killed via heat death of the universe.

nothing_in_my_mind

OR...

Run over by tour bus for band named "Heat Death of the Universe" 3 days after making wish.

nullpotato

Sounds like someone has read the machine of death.

glasspelican

IT ALL COMES BACK AROUND...

Hit by a reentering spacecraft.

My friends would all say "it's how he would have wanted to go," and they'd be 100% correct.

DON'T TEMPT THE FATES...

Someone who finds their own genie has to use their wish on me dying.

WE HAVE A WINNER!!

I can drown to death, but only in a giant tub of ice cream.

I eat just about anything, but can't say I'm a fan of okra. Might it have to do with the way it is typically prepared, at least in my experience? It's slimy. It shouldn't be. It would probably taste better fried. But I have friends from the South who swear it is heaven on a plate.

But there's more than food that's disgusting. Like... why do people idolize Joe Exotic, the Tiger King? He's a sexual predator and a criminal. I know we all needed something to watch during lockdown, but damn. Don't tattoo his face on your body!

"What's that one disgusting thing that everybody except you seems to like?"

How do you tell if someone has a crush on you?

It's not always so easy, and many of us will fumble our way through it. Perhaps our only experience with navigating crushes comes from John Hughes movies (which I don't recommend following).

Oh, and while this isn't a Hughes movie, I would not recommend doing to one's crushes what the nerds do in the terrible Revenge of the Nerds.

Looking for advice? Look no further. You can thank Redditor chaitea_lexax who asked the online community,

"What is a dead giveaway that someone has a crush on you?"

There is a lot to hate about the world today. It seems like around every corner, awful news foretelling the end of the world is playing on every screen.

And we are expected to live in the middle of this? 2020 saw the rise of the term "doom scrolling" because the news about the world was so grim.
