    I picked yes.
    OP, judging from the past 2 threads you created, it sounds like you need to rest and enjoy yourself a bit more. :)

    What makes it an "Ignorant Question?"

    It's a hard question to answer. No one's died and lived to tell about it :)

    Life can be a bitch, but the only alternative truly sucks!

    Well firstly, in death, you have no feelings. No I have never died, it's just common sense. Second, you'd have to feel terribly insignificant suffering major life situations to think that death is possibly better than life. We all have hard times and just want everything to stop, but at the end of the day it's the fact that we made it through it all, and we become stronger from it and can prevent similar situations in the future thus creating a happier life because we have learned from our low-points/mistakes. How could one possibly want to die rather than live?

    Actually, lots of people have. Questions is are their stories a reasonable version of reality, or the distorted mental perturbations of a mind in extremis.

    Billions the world over would disagree with you. Even if you are correct, it's hardly common sense judging by the number of religions that believe otherwise.

    Anyway, as far as the original question, I can't answer it because thankfully the jury is still out for me. ;)

    This. I thought it was another thread from Our Beloved again. :D

    On the other hand, isn't this the type of online stuff police usually find after a suicide or rampage?

    As a believer in Jesus, I look forward to death. Not in a suicidal way, or with an unappreciative attitude of all the amazing things in this life, but when pain, sorrow, disease, and everything else that makes this life so hard finally disappear - I think that's something to look forward too.

    I know life can be really great. I have never heard any positive experiences about death.

    Do you do political polls for a living??

    This feature does have more than 3 options available.

    You need a "Life is what you make it" option, or at least something less black and white. :(

    You make him sound as if he's a specialty hooker. ;)

    OP:
    I'll have to get back to you on this one.

    As a Christian, I look forward to spending eternity with my Lord, savior and creator. I am not looking to rush this, or even looking forward to death.

    God has blessed me incredibly and is providing a very enriching life now and I'm enjoying those blessing. What helps a lot is, that while I may have struggles, these struggles are only temporary.

    Depends on who's doing the dying ;)

    But seriously, define "better"?

    The poll doesn't specify weather you mean this life, past lives, or future lives, so I cannot answer the question.

    Exactly. Since no one knows what it's like to be dead, this is tough to answer.

    How could you hear anything positive about death? Dead people do not post in forums.
