Top Ten Dumbest Ways to Die


The Top Ten

1 Starving in a supermarket

I really think it's a very stupid way to die. I mean, come on ya' idiot, its full of food1 duh! Oh look, I am in a place full of food and I am so scared of getting arrested ill just starve to death instead of sneaking a candy bar or something. But who even stays in a supermarket that long anyway? Definitely a bad way to go

Yes... Yes this is so stupid indeed... Don't even TRY it, you'll be on the news for, 'most dumb woman/man on earth' trust me, don't

In other news a woman was found dead in a supermarket autopsy says she died of starvation - shfydgi

That would be really stupid because there would be so much food around you and you could just grab some food from shelves. There would probably be some free food samples that you could eat.

Wanna hear mine, choking on your own penis

2 Drive off of a cliff but survive but die of shock from the high price of your hospital bill

haha! best joke I've heard in ages! (but don't you mean 'medical' bill? )
that truly is the most stupid way to die.

This is what happens when you don't buy Geico people. Geico: save 15 percent or more on car insurance!

I think I would just tell them, "Look what I've been through! I'll pay you... On Tuesday. "

This would be a memorable death indeed...

3 Forgetting how to breathe

How the heck can you forget how to breath

Yes I know some one who is lol

Hahhaha lmfao I agree

4 Listening to Justin Beiber Too Long

Justin Bieber: "Baby, baby, baby, baby..."
Person: "Oh help, I'm getting a heart attack because of that stupid sound."
Justin Bieber :"(still singing and don't giving a damn) Baby, baby, baby, baby..."
Person: "Now I understand why he's such a dumb ass."

I think it is sad how much people hate on Justin Beiber. I don't like his music and in my opinion there are much better artists, but I don't therefor hate him. I just don't listen to his music. The worst part is that most of the people who hate on him haven't written a better song.

Dying with JB on would just be plain horrific! - PositronWildhawk

5 Choking on your own tongue

When people have seizures, all their muscles contract. Your tongue is a muscle, so it will contract. When this happens the tongue rolls back and the victim will choke on their tongue. It is not uncommon to happen, and is a serious and painful, not dumb, way to die

This is actually a myth, as an epileptic myself I can tell you that this does not happen, nor could it. when people choke to death it is because they were lying on their back and their muscles contract, forcing vomit to fill their mouths and causing them to choke on it while unconscious.

... Totally hilarious,... ha ha you dumbass.

That is so weird. I LOVE IT! lol. tanning booth death couldn't happen (if you mean from the energy... if you mean suffocation then yeah its possible. ) - fireinside96

That is the dumbest thing I have ever heard of like how would you choke on your own tongue.

Don't kill me for this, but I have done that.

6 Trying to eat a whole Big Mac in one bite and choking

I know a kid that did this on a field trip and he threw up non-stop. Fat ass..

I once choked on a butterscotch I wonder what would happen if I tried this? Conclusion DEATH

7 Getting your head ripped of in an elevator

Dude, imagine if you stuck your head out an elevator, and it closes, your neck is still intact, but the elevator elevates and you hit the roof. Your chocking and cannot breath, then there's a headless bloody body in the elevator. If you did that, your brain is smaller than a mustard seed. Geez.

Something like this would be really unlikely to happen, but if it happened it would really hurt. This sounds like something that would happen in an episode of happy tree friends. - Imreallyboredrightnow

I think I put this there because of an episode on 100 ways to die. It could happen but it's very unlikely and couldn't you just get the doors wide enough to pull yourself out? It must hurt though. - booklover1

8 You drink to much Anti-Freeze

Wait, there's a normal amount of Anti-Freeze to drink?

If you ingest ant-freeze you will die. Incredibly stupid

Is there such a thing as too much anti-freeze. I love that stuff I could drink it all day - ChickaChickaSlimShady

There is a normal amount

9 Try to catch a piranha with your own tongue

One piranha is not very dangerous

That is definitely the dumbest way to die! Ouch!

Top no they are super sharp teeth

The only bite when flesh is exposed so if you don't have a cut, you are safe

10 Snapping your neck on an office chair

Umm that's pretty weird and disturbing I like it but it is dumb ok now I sound dumb any one agree with me hey hey hey!

Dude, this is a dumb way to die. Especially on the first day of the job.

That's like SO scary. But Dumb, Like in the Hunger Games A Kid Gets His Neck SNAPPED MY CATO.-.

Scary, but funny

The Contenders

11 Getting stabbed with a cucumber

God, that happens to me ALL THE TIME. Stupid cucumbers, leave me alone. - Mushroom99

In a movie that I don't know the title of some one got stabbed by corn so it could happen? Maybe?

What if you got stabbed to death by corn like that one guy in Sleepwalkers.

Number one/if you got stabbed by a cucumber,its round on the end so it would barley hurt!

12 Get your face caught in an egg-beater

Well that would be a bad bad bad thing to do but, it would, might, or can kill U. So its your choice to kill your self with an egg-beater. So don't try it.

How would that happen you'd need to stick your face on the beater and then turn it on.

Only a moron would do that!

so funny

13 Dying of heatstroke in the arctic

How is this possible? - Turkeyasylum

You could be wearing too much winter clothing. I got a heat stroke in December - AnonymousChick

How when your in the cold think people think

Impossible! It's not even hot in the arctic. - Powerfulgirl10

14 Trying to fly

It's obvious. If you try to fly off a building, you are NOT gonna make it. Some of these can be true, though. People can die of even the smallest cut from a disease where your blood cannot clot and you can just bleed to death.

I did that once when I was three. Broke my arm AND my pride...

Try jumping off a cliff, and then you will instantly die. When you fall on the ground.

We have airplanes now. - Cyri

15 Drown in Jell-o

I wouldn't mind this one as long as if green apple jello and I get to eat some :3

How is that even possible! Is there a pool made of jello, er something?

16 Walking across quicksand while carrying an anvil

The anvil will let you sink more. Very stupid

You guys are so dumb. The anvil will increase the weight of the person, and actually make him sink slower. !

Okay. Go into a lake with a pebble and jump in. Then do the same with a rock you can barely lift. Feel the difference? - Cyri

You'll sink even lower if you carry an anvil while walking across quicksand. - Powerfulgirl10

17 Setting fire to your hair

Poke a stick at a grizzly bear...

A friend told me about some girls in his class doing this with lighters

18 Getting stuck in a tanning booth

Well she did ask for a long tan.

The whole idea just screams Final Destination to me. Oh what, it does happen in Final Destination and it looks like a really bad way to go.

Cool and anyway we were born to die

What happened in Final Destination has a 0.00000000001% chance of ever happening.

21 A game of spoons out of control

What do you mean by "a game of spoons"? - Pony

A game of spoons might kill you.

Yeah. What is that?

It's a card game 🃏

22 Playing Russian Roulette with a fully loaded Uzi

Well that's not Russian roulette, that's shooting yourself with an Uzi. If you were playing classic Russian roulette with only one bullet, then your odds would actually be better than the usual revolver.

How about playing Russian Roulette with any fully loaded gun? There's no chance of you not getting shot!

I guess he didn't read the rules. You only have one bullet.

I'm going to try this tonight

This is from dumb ways to die!

IMPOSSIBLE! I took expired tylenol once years ago AND I AM STILL ALIVE! :D

25 Taking your helmet off in outer space and your head explodes while you freeze to death

What was NASA thinking to hire a nimrod who's dumb enough to take their helmet off in space when astronauts should know that we can only survive 10-15 seconds in space when you don't have oxygen? Plus, space hurts. - RockFashionista

If you were to do this... You must have failed all your courses to be an astronaut...

Dang. Is this guy trying to write a book? That is so stupid. Who takes off their helmet in a dangerous place with no oxygen?!?!?!

U l earn that when u are 2

26 Getting run over by a boat

Haha really NOT funny... Amazing like really who would do that ant more

Definitely agree only stupid people would be like "hey! Let's jump into the propeller! "

Reminds me of Another, the anime. When that kid's body was ripped apart.

" tell some tale bout a boat and sail, but sure this inevitably unveils the fail..." - Cyri

27 Use your private parts as shark bait

It's piranha bate not shark bate

That's nasty and unnecessary. Why pretend your private is a worm? I feel bad for the fish who fell for this... - Powerfulgirl10

So you're saying people used their testicles as fish food?! That's nasty, and dumb. Who does that?!?!

Who would even try this?

31 Taking Lethal Doses Of Cyanide

This is more of a suicide option than a dumb way to die...though I suppose it counts if you think suicide is dumb. Also being poisoned by someone else is dumb, it just sucks.

So there's a not-lethal dose of cyanide?

How would you get paper cut on both your eyes?

When people throw paper airplanes at you and they cut your eyes

I wanna do this when I get out of school lmaoo

34 Trying to put out a fire with gasoline

Well, sadly, a lot of people are not "educated" enough to label canisters. Besides the fact that the only difference is the smell, no one would have time to sniff it when trying to put out a fire.

That's just so funny :D

That's just dumb. Wow.

That'll set a BIGGER fire. - Powerfulgirl10

35 Trying To Piss Of Metallica Fans At A Concert

You probably won't die, just get a lot of "you suck, Metallica is the best! ". I don't know, maybe if you reminded them Saint Anger exists?

36 Teach yourself how to fly

Not jumping off a cliff, idiots. This means you try to fly a plane without seeking professional help from real pilots.

Lol. What you said is funny. "Jumping off a cliff? " is instant suicide.

Eat a two week old unrefrigerated pie

How? Jumping off a cliff?

37 Your head bursts while sitting on the toilet and pressing

That almost happened to me one time... I was all "Hurr.. Come on little guy... " But right before I exploded it came out. Phew.

Haha that's funny as hell and the other comment I read I almost died! Laugh out loud

My eight month old cousin burst a vein when he was pooping last year!

Well, the self destruct button may be a welcome (though deadly) sign of relief if you are forced to listen to too many Justin Beiber songs.

44 Get yourself locked in a refrigerator

This would be the worst way to die and you wouldn't even die of hunger you would freeze

Some refrigerators have a internal temp regulator so you could just turn down the cold

In the old days people would get stuck in those playing games and they wouldn't actually freeze, they'd run out of oxygen...

Laugh out loud! That sometimes happen in cartoons (regular show anyone? )

47 Getting stuck in a dryer

This actually happened to me. I was 5 and not very smart but I didn't die. I was in the hospital for like 4 weeks though. It was the most stupid experience ever. Me and my friend were playing hide and seek

That has to be the dumbest way to die since how did you get into the dryer in the first place? And the door is open-able pretty easily.

Ah, yes. I found out you couldn't escape from the inside the hard way... TOTALLY NOT FUN. I FELT LIKE I WAS LITERALLY BAKING

Why would you do that
