"(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

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

A truly stressful job can destroy your self-esteem and confidence. It's been said that people don't necessarily leave jobs, they leave management.

Indeed, bad management can leave you feeling unmoored and unsupported.

There has been a wider conversation about hostile work environments over the last couple of years now that the COVID-19 pandemic has afforded many people the opportunity to switch careers and/or call it quits with their awful jobs.

No job is worth your mental and physical health.

People shared their stories with us after Redditor yourmaeve asked the online community,

"Redditors who changed careers from a high paying but stressful job to a lower paying but low stress job, was it worth it, why or why not?"

People Share The Most Amazing Facts They Know About The Universe

There is so much we don't know about the universe.

So much, in fact, that everything there is to learn about the universe will probably never be discovered.

Mostly because the universe is constantly growing and evolving, leaving us with new things to learn about the universe literally every day.

Constantly filling our minds with uncertainty, sometimes fear, about the otherwise vast unknown.

All of this makes all facts we've discovered about the universe all the more fascinating, whether or not we have even the slightest interest in science.

Monogamous People Explain Whether Infidelity Would Result In An Instant Breakup

Romantic relationships have evolved considerably over the course of time.

Today, more and more couples who are otherwise committed to one another, in marriage or in word, have "open" relationships, where they are permitted to see other people on the side.

Also, many people are open about being in polyamorous relationships, where they might be equally committed and loving to more than one person.

Which isn't to say, however, that monogamous relationships are a thing of the past.

As many people continue to commit, body and soul, to one person and one person only.

And should one half of that couple break that commitment, it could be the effective end of that relationship.

The mark of a good piece of fiction is when one feels as if they actually know the characters.

Be it a film, television series or novel, there are some beloved characters we wish were actually our friends in real life, or whom we feel as if we've actually known all our lives.

As a result, when one of these characters dies, we sometimes feel as if we've actually lost a loved one.

Sometimes finding ourselves in a state of literal grieving.
