    How: I like just getting up in the morning and see I'm dead! :rolleyes:

    Time: 1 of the autumn's mornings!

    Age: 28 (Just for the hell of it, I don't mind living longer too o:) )

    Funeral: In acold morning with a few people (I hate crowd :tongue2: )

    Song in my funeral: No, please. I want to sleap and like everywhere would be
    quiet! :smile:

    Can't stand it: People who may :cry: . :grumpy: ( :cry: for yourself please
    because I'm free now and you're not! :tongue2: )

    If I wanted to kill myself: Jumping down from a very high place because it
    could be fun(never think of suicide)

    Sunrise found me hanging from a tree
    Well, I woke up in the morn and I was dead
    Surprised that I'd gone and went that far
    I'm dead as f--k, moment's dark whim, and au revoir

    Reaper said: "Why'd you go do that for kid?"
    Well, I woke up in the morn and I was dead
    Said I'd got all uptight, tied up with my blinkered sight
    Forgot this tiny human world ain't all there is

    You can trace it with a map
    Though the ending may be crap
    There is a beauty in the mountains of this troubled country that
    Did wake up in the morn and was transformed.

    Preferably fire, starting my own pyre,

    or perhaps, I would like to take myself some place where the scavengers can recycle what's left - something like the Tibetan Sky Burial that Evo mentioned in some thread.

    My children however have expressed distress at such a notion.

    Death will come soon enough, but I am too busy at the moment.

    Besides, I have a long term contract - at least 99 years, with options to renew. :biggrin:

    Heard this one?

    The Scottsman says: "When I die, I'd like to go like my father, peacefully in my sleep. Not screaming in terror, like his passengers!"

    Supposed to be a comment on Scottish driving habits. (Never been to Scotland so I can't vouch for or against it.)

    P.S. Wha' if I'm a-voidin' th' topic? (Supposed to be an emulation of the Sco' waay of speeakin'. Culturally biased and inaccurate, I am sure.)

    Whenever/wherever it is I hope to have my boots on and wearing my best war face. :devil:

    I'd like to die in bed, but not in my sleep. :biggrin:

    I don't care what happens to my body afterwards, really.

    I think we have to build a elderly house in PF!

    How can you build an elderly house? Surely it would be new?

    Not building! We just should have a forum for elderly people in PF!
  17. Sep 20, 2005 #16
    If we build an elderly house then we should build a PF day care center to house all you like snot-nosed children under the age of 18. :devil: :biggrin:

  20. Sep 21, 2005 #19
    Well, if we're having an elderly home and a day care centre, then I demand a PF gated community (to keep the moderators out).

    My Kind Of Death...

    How: In my sleep after a night well spent. (Barislav, just a thought but you want to make sure you get to finish your activities first :wink:)

    Time: Early in the morning before the sun comes up and after I have enjoyed the evening. I'm not a morning person so dying before it happens would be a great death day gift.

    Age: What ever age I wind up having to where diapers again errr.. sometime before that that is.

    Funeral: Garbage bag at the curb would be fine. I don't particularly care what happens to my body after I die. Maybe donate all my organs. Or my whole body as a cadaver for a medical school.

    Song in my funeral: Ummm... what ever is on the garbage trucks radio at the time I guess. :tongue:

    Can't stand it: I would absolutely hate to die by drowning. Just the thought of it really bothers me.

    If I wanted to kill myself: If I were terminally ill and ready to die any day then maybe with some form of opiate.

    i always liked the idea of drowning... just like, going out very similar to how you came in. when you're born, your lungs are filled with fluids, and you come out choking and gasping for air... going out the same way... mmm... and like, just sinking off into an abyss, seeing the sun get further and further away in a blue haze... and just getting into deeper and darker things, until finally consciousness fails and reality blurs away...

    Anybody ever read The Awakening? The chick swims out into the Caribbean until she cannot swim any further. Now that's a death. After reading that, I knew that was how I wanted to go out.

    Man, anything BUT drowning, it's not that I'm afraid of water or anything but just being trapped underwater and unable to breathe freaks me out.

    Seriously, don't any of you want to die like a man? What about being ripped apart by wolves or die battling a group of robot-ninjas riding T-Rexs?

    Also: http://www.realultimatepower.net/ninja/seppuku.htm, pure awesomeness.

    To be honest, I did consider just going out into the wild when I get really old and seeing how long I can last. It might be pretty fun.
