A little morbid topic for a family-themed forum - but should be okay, I guess.

I, for one, am not afraid to die if it's in the company of loved ones and friends. It only scares me if I pass away alone and no one notices for a long time. It would also be terrible to die a "meaningless death" (such as by vehicular accident, unprovoked murder, etc), but if The Man/Woman/Animal Up There decides to take me before my time, so be it. A "meaningful death" (such as to save someone's life or the world) would be preferable, but ideally, I would like to die of natural causes and not of my own doing (either through poor diet, lack of exercise, stress, etc).

A perfect death for me would be after having lived a fulfilling life, and at a ripe old age of, say, 100 (yeah, a long shot, but one can wish). It will take place on a deckchair on top of Table Mountain, South Africa in the summer (which is the most beautiful place on Earth I have been to so far).

I would have a wife, 2 1/2 kids, 5 grandkids, 10 3/4 great-grandkids, and a dog (or a parrot) by my side. My folks would be long gone, but my siblings should still be alive. I will kick their butts if I don't see them at my deathbed. My friends from primary school, uni, work, and maybe some of you guys would be there too. My enemies are invited, I would've made my peace with them by then.

Yeah, I can see it now, there will be wine, fine dining and a big-*ss jumbotron playing Pixar movies and maybe Avatar 1-5 (James Cameron Extended Editions) on repeat. My last meal will be tom yum soup for the appetiser, ramen for the main course, and a triple chocolate-vanilla sundae with that tiny umbrella on top. I'll wash 'em down with Baileys. I would open a tab for Sarsi and root beer floats.

I will give everyone a hug (and a kiss for my immediate family members or on request). Lionel Richie music will be playing. I will answer any questions that people still have for me. I won't have any for anyone.

And then, when I'm ready, I will close my eyes and die.

My ashes will be scattered over the Pacific by fireworks.

Exactly why I'd rather die in a hospital. And the fireworks sound unique and pretty dang cool!

I have a fascination with death and death rituals. I wrote a 18 page paper on the psychology of death in my philosophy class. Very interesting topic.

EJE: As in in a hospital with family and friends? I personally don't like the idea of passing in a hospital because of the whole sterile environment of it, I'd like to die in a 'surrounded by nature' kinda way that makes me one with the Earth and all that schmalz, like on a beach or on a mountain or on a ship in the middle of the sea. Or in a happy setting like a party.

Ooh, do you have it online? If it's hardcopy, could elaborate a little more, if you don't mind? Just curious.

Preferably with Family and Friends. Yes in the hospital, because people will know right then that I have passed. And I'm not just laying around.

I might have a copy online! If not I can upload it. I is super long, so Idk if you'd be interested in it. I will definitely get the bullet points for you if you'd like! It was a fun paper to write.

^ Yeah, sure, if it's not too much hassle. Preferably the long version, but bullets point's fine. No rush, it's more of an intrigue thing and I'm kinda bored with my reading materials lately that I need to find something more esoteric, haha.

I guess its not dying im scared of.. i think its more of what happens after you die that scares me?
Like is there an after life?
Is there heaven or hell?
or
Is it like sleeping? But without the dreams? like you dont even relise your dead?

Also:

What will every one think?
Who will gett hurt?
Who really cares about you?
What will the poelpe who care about you do?

I'm not afraid to die. I am, however, afraid how my friends and family will cope with it.

'Cuz I'm a bit of an atheist, I do not believe in heaven or hell, I only believe a little bit in reincarnation, but I do believe the world beyond the living one is a risky subject. I tend to think about it, though - one of my ideas is that it is kind of like a dream, except one you do not wake from, until your conscience matches up with a new body and thus goes into a new life.

But even then I'm not entirely sure. Who would be?

Now that I think about it, I am afraid to die from an unhealthy diet. I rarely eat healthy foods (fruit, vegetables). I mostly eat junk like fries, pizza, chicken breast, soda, chocolate and whatnot. Surprisingly, I'm not fat whatsoever. I am becoming concerned about my health yet I can't stop eating crap like this. The most healthy stuff I drink are sometimes smoothies and apple/orange juice. The only fruit that has grown on me is grapes as I consider myself a very fussy eater. The only meat I have is chicken and bacon. I also have eggs when I can. I don't think all these are enough to improve my diet though as I just eat garbage all the time.

I've been told that salt clogs up your arteries. Considering I have alot of salt on my junk food, that makes me very concerned.

No not really. I have my reasons. However I am afraid Glenn will die before me, or vice versa. Of course it's unlikely we would die at the same time. So that worries me.

I'd say I'm more afraid of potentially dying a horrible death than I am of actually dying.

So more afraid of the means to which I COULD die(since we never know how we're going to go), not the dying itself.

^I agree. I'm more afraid of a painful death than death itself.

I'm not afraid to die as much as I am afraid to die a painful death.
