Worst Ways to Die

The Top Ten

1 Buried Alive

It's dark, you can't move, you're running out of air, and no one can save you, because no one knows you're there. Creepy

*come on people, its not THAT horrible. *shudders*. on second thought, it is.

Once I went caving (for those who don't know it is when you explore caves) and I was crouching down because the ceiling was only like 2 or 3 feet high, then we came to this little hole in the ground, and I was laying on my stomach to get a close-up look at it, and I lost my grip and slid head-first into this tiny little hole. I couldn't move my arms, and couldn't see anything... After about 10 or 15 minutes people pulled me out but, sheesh... Scariest moment of my life for sure

No food, no water, dark, cramped, limited air, nothing to end it quicker besides abusing the air, nothing to save you, no one to save you, and your only way out is near impossible.

2 Burning

Enough with the stupid Justin Bieber and virgin jokes.
This is indeed the worst way you can die, it is slow and extremely painful, come on guys this is much worse than dying a virgin.

All I can say about being burned alive is... HOLY CRAP THAT WOULD HURT!

that is horrible I would hate to be burnt

Definitely the worst. Once I accidentally caught my finger on fire. Most painful thing ever. If you think it isn't, then imagine someone pouring hot acid over you. No joke. And you slowly die. Umm I would really hope that the smoke knocks me out for the time being.

3 Torture

They're literally trying to inflict as much pain on you as possible before death. Burning, and drowning are both types of torture.

Like being almost drowning but no and then move on to be burned but when you are almost dead you go on to be beaten then finally getting scaphismed

Extended torture is so harmful not only to the body but to the mind that many who had suffered from it had their brains physically shrink in size. A person can last months or even years this way. Death would be the most merciful part of such a terrible way to go.

Pain and terror will slowly consume you. Hundreds of thousands of ways for it to happen including over half of this list. Could use your worst nightmares against you.

4 Drowning

This happened to me once and my parents didn't care or see me, I was like 10 and I was swimming I challenged myself to the deep ends but then I got pushed by a wave and started to drown, I kept jumping up for small breaths of air and I was screaming help every time I came to the surface, then soon enough I felt a ledge and dragged myself out, my parents didn't even notice, and when I told them they were like ok?

Drowning is undoubtedly the most painful on this list. Number one isn't bad because it's fiction. Number two isn't bad because once I'm dead I won't care. Number three I could just sleep through. Number four would be quick and easy for me and gruesome for the poor guy who had to clean it up. Number five would be quick and easy. Number six isn't that bad.

I think drowning is the worst I would rather be tortured for years before I die than drown I've almost drowned once and it's the scariest thing out there your deep under water no one can hear your screams for help and it you do scream your wasting air that's keeping you alive and you don't know where your at and all you can think about is oh my god I'm going to die

I think this one is the most painful of all. There other ones are kind of a joke. Except burning. I think burning and drowning are THE WORST, but drowning is like REALLY painful. Just experiencing it, not really drowning, is enough!

5 Trapped under ice

This would be cold lonely, painful, suffocating, death ever this is like 3 worst ways to die combined

Screaming (screaming) I'm trapped under ice! (A one for all you Metallica fans)

More horrifying than being buried alive, because you can see the world thru the ice, but can't get out to it. Plus, in your panic, you loose sight of were the hole in the ice is and you begin to drown from the shock.

Being trapped under ice is like being buried alive while drowning. Ice actually is pretty soundproof, and thick ice is hard to break. Plus, you would be able to see people, and the world, knowing that they won't be able to save you. It also is much more possible than actually being buried alive.

6 Be strapped down so you can't move. Then, have a 1 foot nail start from a foot above your head, and go down a millimeter every hour until it goes through your forehead

There is this thing called bamboo torture when they strap you above a growing bamboo and wait until it grows through you.

Realistically, you'd be laying there for two and a half weeks. You'd die of starvation before that thing touches your head. Now if it was inches, then you would die in under a day.

Your torture would probably take care of you to keep you from dying earlier. Also, it wouldn't need to go all the way through your head. Only deep enough to kill you. I don't know if that's what you meant but anyway.

This would be horrible just to watch AND listen to so imagine having to life (or die) though this!

It's both psycological and physical torture. Imagine laying there, knowing you are going to die. This is cruel and heartless. Not even criminals deserve this. I'd rather have life in prison with no parole.

7 Starving

My friend started doing that and I kept bringing her food and made her eat it I'm glad to this day she stopped starving herself

This should be number one because you don't die from being buried alive, you'd die from dehydration, starvation, or running out of oxygen. Also why isn't dehydration on here? It's worse than most of these and happens before starvation.

I can barely survive a day without eating breakfast!

Three weeks to a month more like three weeks to three months without food but not more than 3 days without water

8 Long Painful Illness

I nearly died of being SUPER sick, this is the worse sickness ; - ;

Flesh eating bacteria? Ebola? Cholera? Bubonic plague?

Dang that would hurt since it would be torture and then you just die

I have cancer.

9 Having your skin torn off

Having your skin torn of I imagine is pretty god damn painful, so for me its one of the most painful ways to die

Think about it! This shouldn't be #8. Sit there right now and try not to blink for twenty seconds. Now imagine, you still can't, and you never can again no matter how much your eyes burn. And you can't stand because the weight hurts too bad oioin your feet. But you can't lay down because the weight hurts too bad everywhere else. And you're freezing, but also burning, and are vomiting and everything else. This is the worst, beside a billion papercuts slices through entire chunks of your body, just a half inch at a time, until too much of you has been cut off.

This would be HORRIBLE I would rather do anything else then that! It would hurt so much oh god never ever!

You know this happens to people who are overweight or pregnant, and when pregnant or overweight, the baby or junk food pushes out the belly and stretches the skin til it rips.
Ever wonder why they have stretch marks? oh and they're still alive, but it sucks and is something they'll never forget.

10 Falling off the Empire State Building and landing on your balls

That sounds funny, yet really painful a the same time...

That will totally hurt dude laugh out loud but no really... And I'm a girl! :O

Not possible you would die immediately

I’d probably risk my butt not my balls but this is just nuts hahaa get it

The Contenders

11 Skinned alive

I searched this up and I literally threw up. I promise don't search this up. People are stupid to do this to animals. Why can't they just shave instead? A man had this happen to him once.

CRAP NO that's leather face getting your face ripped of and worn as a mask

Being skinned alive just sounds horrible

Extremely painful

12 Listening to Justin Bieber

NO I'd rather be buried alive than listening to that piece of... I'd like to die in war, trying to defend my country...

this can be a type of torture, dyk that they use the barney song 2?

once our car was broken so it was stuck playing Hip-hop which was ok but then Justin Bieber started playing it was horrible my ears wanted to bleed and worse, it was at full volume so whenever we stopped at an intersection I had to tell everyone that I hate JB and that the radio was broken I would rather be kicked in the groin repeatedly until I die rather than listen to JB.

This is the worst way to die by far, if I go to hell then the Devil will have this one in store for me in purgatory

13 Being crucified

Crucifixion is brutal. The Romans created it to torture and eventually kill the select person. Let me walk you through the process. First they beat you. Specifically lashing. Then they make you carry your cross to your death spot, beating you along the way. They either nailed or they tied you to a cross. Some people would last days on the Cross. If they want to make the process quicker they break you knees. The most gruesome death ever.

Terrifying even for people who don't believe in Jesus because crucifixion was a real method

They would nail you to a cross and then drive a nail through your throat

Like literraly why is this not 1! Judas commited suicide after seeing this!

14 Watching your family being burned alive, then get burned but you live to be tortured for many years and then paralyzed and then get shot

I love my family I would give up everything for them but tortured for many years then get paralyzed and shot?Worst way to die I agree

This is the most random way to die
I've ever heard whoever thought this up clearly has a twisted mind.

It's not so much about the way I die, as the TORTURE! Just watching my family die would be enough to break me, but torturing me for years, now that's sick and twisted considering I was nearly BURNED TO DEATH!

I would absolutely hate to see my family in pain. To be honest, the thing that makes this really bad and the worst one for me, is seeing your family in pain. I would rather live to be tortured for many years than out my family through all of that suffering. Then again, this is my personal opinion.

15 Raped and beaten to death

This would really suck to die this way.

This sounds super horrible and twisted and it actually happens a lot in this world

This would be a bad way to end your life, bad memories in the sky and in the ground

If you survived this your life will never be the same again. It would be ruined.

16 Pooping in the shower and the poop clogs up the drain and water fills up the shower and you drown in a watery poo poo mess while watching Fanboy and Chum Chum.

Laugh out loud! Clogged Shower? Watery poo poo mess? WATCHING FANBOY AND CHUM CHUM?! THIS IS FUNNY!

Funny as hell. LOL. I voted for this.

Your kidding me? That is funny. I once pooped in the shower.

The fact that this is an item on the list on this site doesn't surprise me. What does surprise me is the fact that this is in the top 20

17 Alone

This should be at the top spot because I can't think of a worse way to die than when you are alone, that's just terrible!

I feel like this is inevitable for me. Not because I want it to. I'm not asexual or stuff like that, I feel that this is inevitable because, well, no one is interested in me. I better get used to this idea

Not so much painful as it is emotional, I would at least call someone like in Magnolia and just talk until I die.

that would just be the worst...

18 Chopped in half with a battle axe while your skin is shaved away with a rusty cheese grater

So painful. I can't believe this isn't ranked higher. It seems to be one of the only ones with actual creative thought put into it.

Ouch! I mean, come on. Anyone fancy a pickle and grated skin sandwich? Thought not. And your really weird if you do. Get it?

This should be number 1 I mean how can you not think get your skin taken off with a rusty cheese grater is not bad or painful

Is the person who thought of this crazy A RUSTY CHEESE GRATER? whats the difference between a new shiny grater? And you would not feel halve of it cause you are already dead... unless the person doing this to you wants to make you look UGLY for your funeral!

19 Bleed to death

I only bleed once, luckily the doctor gave me a bandage and I didn’t die

Don't know what type of wound this would be but it depends on the area of impact and if it's a fast or slow bleed out.

I got hit like right on the eyebrow with a stick by a girl. And I was gushing blood she said it was an "accident" but really I don't think that it was.

NO WAY! The EXACT same thing happened to me except I was hit by some guy with a stick. When was this anyway? - BLAZEDAFOX

I don't think it would be that painful because you would most likely be in shock

20 Suffocate

It means to choke bad like strangled and drowning

Actually it kinda is

Its slow and painful

It would be a lot like drowning

21 Suicide

this is something most people are thinking about doing, don't be quick to judge, put urself in someone's shoes and memories then think about why they're thinking about suicide maybe you'll understand better

You have no idea what you are talking about. Walk a mile in another persons shoes. Then decide, don't judge something you don't understand... The human experience.

This is definitely the worst way... If you don't like your life, there is always a way to make it better..

I would rather prefer to kill myself before someone else tries to kill me

22 Electrified

Getting electrocuted sounds HORRIBLE! Think about it, almost anybody who has survived being struck by lightning described it as feeling like they got hit over the head with a sledgehammer! Or they say it is like one of those little static shocks you get when you touch a doorknob magnified hundreds of thousands of times! AH! Imagine your body becoming a FRIED CIRCUIT. OH. SNAP.

At least you wouldn't be able to feel anything, cause you'd be dead in a millionth of a second.

Lele Pons got electrified to death on escape the night


23 Being bound to a flesh-eating ant nest in the nude and having to watch the ants eat you until they ate your eyes.

Even the worst of criminals don’t deserve this long painful death!

Why just for those who touch women why not those who touch men as well we need gender equality here

This is best punishment for those who rapes women and disrespects women safety.
Its better if ants starts with their private parts.

That is very bad and weird. I wonder who would do that? Those people who do that must be crazy. Would you do that. I would not. That is just torcher. To the people that some people hate. That is just messed up

24 Shot

Depends. If it's a headshot then you'll die so quick you won't even feel or hear anything. A heart shot is also quick but not instantaneous, meaning it still hurts. But anywhere else would suuck.

Head shot is quick, the heart is too but anywhere else will hurt like hell.

Getting shot in the stomach or the waist is said to be one of the most painful and slow ways to die

No matter how I die I pray I'm not shot..

25 While having sex

This is so idiotic! If you're going to go you should at least go doing what you feels so good.

Oh, and if it hurts, you're probably doing it wrong.

Laugh out loud I don't want to die that way I love sex too much

Ya this will never happen (thank god) because I'm setting a good example for my kids ( aka I'm adopting, I'm not an idiot)

Gross, ugly and creepy. I heard that if your not older then 18 you would never have your period then. I did it once.
