@Robert Gentel,
Commiting suicide is the best way .
stroke is the next best choice.
But death levels all.
whether an intellectual or a toilet cleaner,
I will be immensel happy to say goodbye to all without regrets or remorse.

@OGIONIK,
As a non-believer oif any brand of religion, i wish to use one word .
Death is my political philosophy because commuism is dead and gone.Corporate controlled capitalism is omnipotent, all-pervasive and will never face death.
Ahahahah

@Robert Gentel,
I rather suspect that if I don't die from an accident, or someone shooting me I will die of a stroke considering that I am on daily medications for high blood pressure and cholestrol.

@Robert Gentel,
I took one of those little Internet quizzes a few years ago that suggested the most likely sceanrio in my case was "being eaten by a bear". Razz

I'm sure that was before he became a vegetarian.

What was the second most likely?

I'll have a stroke because I am struck by lightning as I am suiciding by driving my car off a cliff drunk, because I have been told I have a painful and untreatable cancer.

@Robert Gentel,
Well, I can rule out alcohol poisoning, motorcycle accident, or suicide.
I assume it's either heart disease or cancer, or both....

Then again, I am glad that I don't know when or how.

@Robert Gentel,
1 in 119 deaths are suicides? Wow. Is the data from the US only?

@roger,
If you are used to seeing the suicide rates expressed as a x in 100,000 it sounds quite inaccurate, but those x/100,000 suicide rates are for the whole population (not just deaths). I'm not sure where these numbers in the graph come from but they'd reflect the percentages of deaths, and they look about right to me:

@Robert Gentel,
The stats came from the wiki site - did you make the graph?

@roger,
I think the statistics almost credible.
In India is a little bit more and In Japan still more.
death due to suicide is less thangetting killed by barbaric wars and far less than due to poverty.
But I believe the above statistics is global one and not about the suicide rates in one country like USA.
