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 - TwinsFan11092

*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

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! - HorsebackCheerleadingGirl

that is horrible I would hate to be burnt
- chip123polo

Oh my word...all the people burned through history for their faith in Jesus. Brace souls 😰

3 Drowning

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 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!

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

Drowning causes a sense of hopelessness, dread, and panic. You know you are about to die and you have absolutely no control as your lungs force you to inhale finally filling them with water. And you choke and suffocate with all those feeling and pain racing through you. And you know you're dying. You are completely aware of everything.

4 Torture

This method can be steered VERY lethal in many ways. You could be kidnapped since childhood, then tortured until they're too fragile. They could use MANY instruments! Pliers, electric drills, screwdrivers, ropes, crowbars, steel bars, shackles, broken glass, fire, hot wax, needles, hot iron rods and more!

Torture is such a broad term that can encompass both drowning and burning for many days or years. The amount of of torture methods are beyond comprehension. Being eaten alive by maggots or slowly impaled are two fun torture methods to say the least! Almost any of the opposing ways to die could be counted as torture.

You could be tortured for the rest of your, like could you imagine being tortured for years( and people can think of some really crazy ways to torture you) until you body couldn't handle it anymore. The person(s) your being tortured by gets to decide when and how you die if they wanted to kill you. This is definitely the worst way to die.

Definitely the worst because there are so many ways to be in pain before you actually die. Honestly you would want death after being tortured for a long enough time.

5 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 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

This should be on 1,000 Ways To Die! This should be Number one. Everybody one earth should tell Justin this' Yo mammas so stupid she gave birth to you! No! Just looking at Justin Bieber makes you die just look at his HAIR!

"Is it too late now to say sorry? "

YES. HECK YES. - ChocoMint

7 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!

That sounds like fun

8 Trapped under ice

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

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.

"When I finally grabbed her in the darkness, I swam back to the surface. It never occurred to me how fast the ice could freeze over." - EpicHorrorMaster

9 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

Flesh eating bacteria? Ebola? Cholera? Bubonic plague?

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

Ebola? Amoeba? Scarlet Fever? Small pox? Salmonella? C-A-N-C-E-R?

The Contenders

11 Starving

I can barely survive a day without eating breakfast! - Icantbelieveitsnotbutter

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

Buy your extremely hungry and it hurts, but not like you haven't eaten lunch, like you haven't eaten at all for a month

I already almost died of starving and not having unoff fluid

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

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

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

Not possible you would die immediately

That will hurt.

13 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

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. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

Really... 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. - JamesBourne

That's torture but a creative way none the less...lol

14 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

I want to die

15 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!

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

Funny as hell. LOL. I voted for this.

16 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! - Blazers

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

that would just be the worst... - JohnnyTheBird

One of my worst fears

17 Raped and beaten to death

This would really suck to die this way. - Turkeyasylum

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

Gives me a chub.

18 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)

It's a good way to say goodbye if you die right at the climax

19 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

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!

That's twisted, if my family was burned alive in front of me I wouldn't even make it to the torture I would die with my family voluntarily even if I lived I would think I deserved it for letting my family die and not dying with them

This is a horror to live in +18
