"Ah hell no. I didn't need to hear that."

We were discussing how we want to die while we were ignoring our work. It started out with a discussion of ice forming on the wings of small general aviation aircraft and the loss of lift. I said it would be kinda cool to go out in a flaming earthbound ball of ice, aka an iced up airplane, but only if I would die by hitting the ground anyway and only if it were being videotaped. I wouldn't get to see it as I would be dead but it would make the 6:00 pm and 10:00 pm news.

Someone else mentioned that death by freezing is thought to be euphoric. Quick painless death and sleeping when you die were also brought up.

Then it came, a co-worker who is old enough to be my mother said with a smirk:

"Heh, I know how I want to go."

Blech, not how I wanted to start off a new year at a job I actually enjoy.
