    Nah you'd actually suffocate + some minor vascular damages, then when your hearth would either stop or go under hum lets say 40 beats per min the pressure of your blood wouldn't be sufficient to keep it liquid.
    Should I draw you a picture ?
    Oh wow, I always thought I would freeze before anything else happens. Indeed, a picture would be nice

    Quality of life. Shouldn't such expectation of quality of/in life, be mirrored in the process from life to death?
    That's your ideal, not mine. The process from life to death is non-existent. The process from conception to death can be too long, too slow and too painful. I don't really care how I die, but I'd prefer to be in control of it.

    Is quality measured by lack of boringness, only? Aka, stimulation, even in death? That's the kind of last stimulation you want/remembered as your last thought?
    Stimulation is important to me. I wouldn't want to die at the bottom of a highway ditch, bleeding from an car accident, for example. Also, no one will remember my last thought, including me. After death, as far as anyone knows, we just kind of decompose.

    Also, I dunno whether my life will get to the point of being evaluated as 'not worthwhile' if I'm still capable to think like you did above [the scenario], and more importantly, be cognizant and physically able to pull it off, meaning, my 'quality' might not be that bad (just yet) if I can pull off what you have outlined above. Ability to achieve climbing to the top of a tree being a big indication of my still-kicking quality of life.
    Right on, but if I have cancer and it metastasizes into my lungs, heart and brain, I know I'm not going to have a good quality of life for very long and I certainly won't want to be laying in a bed in overwhelming pain for last part of my life. Is that the kind of thing you'd want to suffer through?
    “Some people will tell you that slow is good – but I’m here to tell you that fast is better. I’ve always believed this, in spite of the trouble it’s caused me. Being shot out of a cannon will always be better than being squeezed out of a tube. That is why God made fast motorcycles, Bubba…”

    I would have recurring dreams of dying while saving people from a terrorist bomb when I was younger. Phew! Glad that phase passed. Also, I didn't like the idea that I wasn't smart enough to save myself too.

    Now, I file away all of these incredible stories of people who have their mental faculties intact and can function quite well physically in their 80s and 90s. One day, they just believe they're done, come home, lie down and never wake up. I like that. No fuss, no family on tenterhooks, no losing mental faculties (most scary). I also like that in a small way, it will be my choice. The final one.

    More than anything, I want to be writing well into old age and be mentally sharp. I'd be okay traveling and dying somewhere beautiful too - hopefully in the vicinity of a beautiful natural water body. Not in it, just by it.

    Death by black hole. Failing that, death by F5 tornado. Not the debris -- getting sucked up into it. So on the ocean probably.

    I wouldn't like to die.

    But... if I had to, I suppose I'd like it if I had doctors put me under anesthesia, and then remove all my organs for potential transplant into people who need them (or just for dissection/experimentation/artistic purposes, I guess, if they have no other use for the organ). Then of course, disconnect all the machines while I'm still under and let me die. I don't want to be conscious.

    I think I'd like to know it's coming so myself and everyone I care about can prepare. I think it would be easier that way. The way that sounds it would have to be a disease, which I really don't want...hmm. Is there a disease with minimal discomfort and pain where you're lucid and still functioning that allows enough time for people to accept it and to get your affairs in order? If so that, I guess. Then I want to actually die in my sleep of the mystery disease.
