"(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,
Here are the most interesting answers to that question.
In my sleep. Preferably sometime after next week. I want to watch UFC (title fight) first. Brutal_Brian
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
(I want to die) Happy.
(Don't we all?) Zakarrii
Like a King
The way Elvis was rumored to have died. Sitting on the toilet, eating a sandwich. Blue-eyed-lightning
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

In such a blaze of glory that my birthday is a national holiday and schools are named after me. I_moo_at_horses
In any way that's instantly to be honest. ThatYoungBro

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
"What are you gonna do, shoot me?"
I see it as fitting for myself, since I'm a little to sarcastic. RampantPuppy

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
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
Take It Like a Man Kif!
You catch more flies with honey than with vinegar, or so the saying goes.
The same can be said for your interactions with cops, most of whom are perfectly happy to let minor infractions slide––When was the last time you were actually ticketed for jaywalking?––provided you're not a total Karen should you interact them.
Your local police officer likely doesn't care about jaywalking or the fact that you went five miles over the speed limit unless you give him a reason to, as we learned when Redditor Takdel asked police officers: "What stupid law have you enforced just because someone was an a-hole?"
