    Having just read through the thread "how do you want to die?", it occured to me, what would be the lamest way? The kind of way that your friends and relatives wouldn't bee too keen on letting out.

    Some coworkers and I were discussing this, and we agreed that the "lamest" way to die would be:

    "Killed by falling ice"

    Not 10 seconds after we agreed to that, a large ice dam slammed into the window of the conference room we were in.

    After I recovered, I said:

    "Let me amend that: The Lamest way to die would be 'Killed by falling ice... indoors'"

    Agreement was had by all.

    What can you guys think of..?

    Ok, let me amend the thread title:

    What are the Lamest Way to Die, that Could Actually Happen To You? (E.G. Semirealistic)

    Bingo.

    Also- any nerve or immune system disease. Stuff you can't fight.

    I believe Paul Provenza said it best. I use this one all the time...

    "Did you ever see a photograph of a cruise ship at sea? Like in the beginning of 'The Love Boat,' that crane shot over the ocean that you've seen on all the brochures: in the middle of that vast ocean, stretching infinitely in all directions -- huge body of water -- that little, tiny cruise ship, and in the middle of that little, tiny cruise ship, that little, tiny swimming pool. Drown in that pool -- that's funny."

    Tripping on the crack between paving slaps and cracking your head on a wall.

    Death by shaking a vending machine and it toppling on you?

    Death by easily curable disease is up there for me on a global scale.

    A friend of mine almost died playing spin the bottle about 40 years ago. Bottle heated up, shattered, hit an artery in his ankle. Almost didn't make it.

    There's that and being trampled by throngs of rabid shoppers on an early Black Friday store opening.

    Absolutely.

    Also, those who refuse medical treatments and instead seek alternative therapies, resulting in their own death.

    It's the Gilmore Girls that really drives this home for me...
