For me it would be to be stung to death from bees. I've always been deathly afraid of bees.

You remember those bee movies about killer bees? I hated those!!!

Oh, here I thought you were looking for someway to kill a character off. Rats. Got some doozies for that.

Personally, I'm not into pain. Anything really lingering and painful would be worse for me.

In my sleep, in one of those dreams where I have no voice with which to scream out (although I try and try), while sneezing.

My head explodes.

Cause unexplained. Insurance refuses to pay out. My children are forced to live on mac and cheese forever, and my husband is forced to marry for money.

Fire. Or being slowly boiled to death.

Fire. Or being slowly boiled to death.
This- exactly this

Shitting oneself to death on the toilet, obviously.

Practically any form of medieval torture is also pretty bad.

Fire. Or being slowly boiled to death.

A third vote...

Another would be some type of brain injury, that one really has scared me for a long time...

brain injury like being a vegetable? That one would be high on my list too.

Being slowly boiled to death would be okay. I think it would be like the frog- you wouldn't notice. Wishful thinking. :P

Ew. What a morose topic.

Any of the myriad illnesses which robs me of my physical abilities for self-care, communication, etc. while my brain is just fine.

Somebody smother me, please.

Being alive in the first place is the worst (and only) way I can think of to die.

Never having existed? You weren't around at all to care that you aren't around in the future.

Living then dying? Pain and probably mind-crushing disappointment.

That's my vote.

Mine's a writing-related answer, not so much an Office Party answer, because I'm confused to be honest ;)

The worst I can think of is like those who jumped from the World Trade Towers. The absolute horror. I think of my classmate who died on Flight 77 often, but I still think that something that could make that many folks jump from a skyscraper or burn to death, en masse, must have been worse. Just hell on earth.

Worst way? - probably sequestered - all by myself - in some dreary, gloomy little room - with no one to talk to - except my few interwebz friends on some forum somewhere...

I agree with the others that said fire. I just can not fathom that as a way to go.

Remember that episode a few years ago, the freakoid woman who was abducting women and drugging them so they couldn't move and dressing them up like dolls?

And Spenser told us that after a couple of months of paralysis that the women would stroke out from lack of stimulation. That's got to suck!

To be paralyzed in one position for months, unable to move, communicate, but fully conscious.

In the 'real life' catagory - I think burning to death would be bad.

I hear ya.

Maybe there should be a funniest way to die thread?
