"(I)n this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes." ~ Benjamin Franklin

In this life, no one gets out alive. People are obsessed with death and dying or mortally afraid of it. But since we'll all die eventually, 

"How do you want to die?" 

Here are the most interesting answers to that question.

Priorities

In my sleep. Preferably sometime after next week. I want to watch UFC (title fight) first. Brutal_Brian

Very Funny

Sometimes i wish i can die from laughter. like laughing too hard to a joke and pass away. but of course not now, like when im 70 or 80. getyourownwifi

On My Terms

A planned end-of-life ceremony, with stellar drugs for a pain-free passing, when I am older than 85 years. This would be more than 50 years in the future, so I'm hoping it's not still horribly taboo by then. I've got no interest in having my butt wiped by an underpaid nurse while my mind and body goes to mush.  Shiny_Vulvasaur

Who Doesn't?

(I want to die) Happy.

Like a King

The way Elvis was rumored to have died. Sitting on the toilet, eating a sandwich.  Blue-eyed-lightning

Either Or

Either in the most badass way possible or quick and painless with all my memories intact.  TheSorge

The Healing Power of Michael Landon

It's lame, but I want to die of very, very old age. I don't think most people stop and realize what a gift old age really is.

It dawned on me recently when I was watching an episode of Highway to Heaven.  VaticanTwoTheSequel

I Want to die Monty Python style. (No one expects that...)  scoops3

Cara Delevigne... smothering me to death while...  TROEWAWAY9916

Hold My Beer...

In such a blaze of glory that my birthday is a national holiday and schools are named after me.  I_moo_at_horses

Immediate Gratification

In any way that's instantly to be honest.  ThatYoungBro

Moving Violation

I would like to die peacefully in my sleep, like my Grandpa did.

And not screaming in terror like his passengers.  DrColdReality

On My Own Terms Part 2

Heroin overdose.  Hear me out. Odds are I will develop a terminal illness by 60. Figure I'll treat what I can to keep it manageable. Heroin is cheaper than most pain meds so I'll use that once things really get heady. I'll keep upping my doses until I just die. Preferably in the grass under the night sky. Barefoot.  snakeoil-huckster

Tonight on Unsolved Mysteries...

Mysteriously, in the Bermuda Triangle. I wanna be a Buzzfeed Unsolved episode someday.  Happycass

The Meaning of Life

I want to be chased by dozens of nude women, eventually leading to a cliff that I fall off of, landing perfectly in my grave, where the funeral is waiting to happen.  beardingmesoftly

Dust to Dust

I want to be swallowed whole by a giant among giants, where my whole body is only a fraction of the teeth that inevitably grind me into a fine white dust.  notApollogising

Back Out the Way I Came In

I want to be swallowed by an anaconda, feet first. As my body slides backwards into a flesh tunnel through a gaping maw, my life will have a certain symmetry.  LittleGravitasIndeed

Me Last

In my sleep on an unexpected night after all my loved ones die (excluding any that come later on in life obviously).  agamemnons

I don't know how exactly, but I want to be able to yell "There's too many of them!!!"  nightwing2024

A Good Day to Die

Heroically.  (With rousing theme music.) DaCheesiestEchidna

A Little From Column A...

Part of me wants to pass surrounded by a large family. Going gracefully to the ever after content that I had passed on a good legacy.

Another part wants to go in a fiery high speed crash while strapped into a ridiculously fast car and being pursued by every law enforcement agency I can piss off.

Another part is content dying alone while watching Game Show reruns.  WanderingDestere

CW: Suicide

There is so much to learn in life.

And once you acquire certain things mentally, you regret it.

How much 411 have you come across over time that made you think... "How can I unlearn that?"

Yeah, not possible.

Knowledge is power and sometimes it's a nightmare.

Don't we have enough to keep us up at night?

Damn curiosity.

Well let's do some learning.

Redditor RedBoyFromNewy wanted to shed some light on creepy issues we need to be discussing. They asked:

"What’s a disturbing fact that not a lot of people know of?"

The truth matters.

Something one would think was a given in modern society.

Yet all over the world, there are people so unbelievably stubborn, that they simply refuse to believe the facts.

Sometimes even when presented with evidence.

This could be for something menial, such as refusing to believe that a cotton candy was actually invented by a dentist.

But sometimes, refusing to believe the truth could have serious consequences, up to and including climate change, the effectiveness of masks, and the disproportionate amount of gun violence in the US.

Redditor Lady_Of_The_Water was curious about the many things, both frivolous and serious, people refused to believe were true, leading them to ask:

"Whats something someone thought you were wrong about and ridiculed you for it, but it turns out you were right?"
