The 13 Worst Ways To Die

The 13 Worst Ways To Die

Are you afraid of dying? Chances are if someone were to ask you that question you would probably say yes. Most people are, and the only thing that most people fear even more than dying is public speaking. Still, death is right up there with our most primal fears, and we are perhaps the only known species in the universe that is fully aware of our own mortality.

Sometimes self-awareness can be a burden. Maybe that’s where the infamous saying, “Life’s a b*tch, and then you die” came from. Regardless, it’s an inevitable part of life, along with taxes of course, and we have decided to make that actuality hit home that much harder with our 13 Worst Ways to Die compendium.

Here, you will learn about some of the most gruesome and psychologically scarring ways to kick the bucket. You can also check out the tongue-in-cheek alternative to this list, “The 1000 Worst Ways to Die” television show if your blood-lust for the macabre has not been satsified after going through our list. The only caveat left to mention before we get into the nitty gritty is to have a couple of Xanax capsules handy while reading this list, because it ain’t for the faint of heart. You have been warned…

13. Disease

Some of you may be wondering why dying via a disease is so low on the list. Well, to be honest, we feel that while dying due to a disease can be painful, there are many medications available on the market that can numb pain and help relieve anxiety and depression as a person slowly fades away into the ether.

Still, the very realization that one has contracted or has been afflicted with a fatal disease with no cure is devastating in of itself. Imagine being diagnosed with Aids or a terminal form of cancer and being told you have months to live. Some diseases annihilate their victims in even more gruesome ways. For instance, the Ebola virus kills its victims through unstoppable hemorrhaging, while a flesh eating virus will slowly eat away at its host as the body begins to rot and decompose in rapid succession.

12. Devoured by Animals

We’re not sure what would be worse. Being devoured by animals or being eaten alive by zombies. Well, considering the latter does not (yet) exist, we’ll go with the former. Look, we know that animals can be cute and cuddly and can also serve as companions, but the truth of the matter is many of these domesticated animals do have their feral and animalistic side and will eat their owners under the “right” conditions. Just read up on all the cases of dogs and cats eating their owners’ faces and you may think twice about owning a pet.

In addition, if we’re to look at wild cats, we would have to take the grisly up a notch. For instance, while tigers and lions usually break the necks of their prey before devouring them, jaguars will actually use their extended canines to incise the temporal bones of their victims. In other words, they will bite directly into the brains of their victims. CRUNCH!

11. Being Electrocuted
