I am a registered nurse and I have taken care of burn patients, aids patients, alzheimer's....you name it. Many of them have died. In my personal experience, I would say that the very most painful death that I have witnessed would have to be death by cirrhosis of the liver. Every patient I have taken care of with this condition has had a very painful, slow, and agonizing death. Although I would say that burning would be a close second, I would choose to burn to death in a split second to avoid this outcome.

Fire would be the worst in my opinion. Just the thought of feeling your skin melt off!! Not for me, let a sniper put a .50 cal in my head.

Burning to death is by far the worst in my book!

May 14th 1988, I was a passenger in a Ford F150 that had a bad front U-joint on the front Driveshaft, (but no indication it was bad) after the Joint broke and the shaft collapsed onto the ground at 45 mph the bouncing action caused the shaft to swing back and begin pounding on the undercarriage of the truck at around 45ish mph.. (we were in heavy traffic also)
We burst into flames and at some point the Cab was engulfed in flames to the point where I couldn't even see the Driver... we both managed to bail out, he sooner than I.
During the panic I was struggling with the door handle to open the door When I finally managed to get it opened I stepped up onto the Rocker panel Truck still moving about 35ish mph at that point the truck steered itself over the curb causing me to fall out, On Impact I hit the outside of my left ankle on the curb causing it to relocte my foot from it's actual location to the inside of my left calf, quite painful.
Knowing the truck had 2 saddle tanks both full of fuel, I feared the truck exploding near me where I lay on the ground So I jumped to my feet and tried running away but couldn't run very good with just one foot.
Long story short I ended up in the hospital with 33% of my body burned with 3rd Degree burns on both of my legs and left arm. The Hospital immediately contacted an orthapedic expert who was on vacation in Europe and asked him to return home due to the severity of my ankle/foot,, the surgeons available couldn't decide the best way to handle my ankle without causing more damage to it, they couldn't cast it because of the burns...
I was a total mess.. I spent 37 days in the Hospital recovering. The burns all healed but the scars are a constant reminder of the pain I had to endure to survive. My Doctors said it was a good thing I was in such good shape and had trained as a Golden Gloves boxer around that time,, otherwise the pain would have probably taken it's toll..
All these years later I'm doing as good as expected I guess.
The ankle never healed properly and my Talus bone was shattered which lost most of it's blood supply. (I can tell ya when a storms coming)

I don't know if there's a good way to choose to Die But I can tell ya from experience, nothing compares with the (constant) pain and suffering from Burns.

And a lot of people frown on Hunters using 4 wheelers during the hunting seasons, hopefully this sheds some light on why a hunter may need the assistance of a 4 wheeler at times.

BB, thats one heck of a story. I'm glad you survived to tell it now. I would not have liked to have been riding in that truck that day. I've been burned with sulfuric acid from the knees down and can testify thats not good either. I too can forcast the weather, from the titainium in my neck!

yup we're both lucky, between luck and our guardian angels we'll do ok..
Did you get grafted? I didn't, Right from the start my doctor said my skins cells were mating rapidly
so they decided not to graft, I wish they would have now because after I developed a blood clot in my lung
the mating ceased while the blood focused on healing the lung, It took about 11 days to diagnose and fix that problem...
There's some really smart inner workings we have inside us,, like the saying goes, "God didn't make no junk".
