Stabbed to death is up there.

The worst is to be shipped off to a nursing home where you are at the mercy of people making $10 an hour who really don't care about you - you will sit around in your own urine and maybe even be abused - if it ever comes to that for me - I will off myself.

Alzheimers
Cancer
Parkinsons
Heart Attack
Crime victim -- home invasion and being murdered
Any disease or condition in which I am confined to a hospital or nursing home as a virtual prisoner, dying by degrees and constantly being pawed by strangers who are paid employees of the institution.

Terminally ill people and old people should be allowed the choice of a quick and easy glass of poison.

Getting your gentials trapped in a bacon slicer, before dying as a consequence of the inevitable blood loss.

A very sharp rotating blade for cutting bacon. I guess it would do a fine job as cutting other kinds of meat...
