    Good question. I have often envy those who die in their sleep. I hope the same for me when the times comes. I find that other ways are much too horrible some times (i.e Drowning, fire, etc).

    I hope to die peacefully in my sleep (when the time comes). But to answer the question, i think its a great idea to face up. I never thot of that. My conventional way was to... (if to jump off a flat).... is to face down.

    I learnt something today. Thanks!

    i never thought of that question ever, it just happen to that i was watching a movie and the question came from one of the character in the movie asking that to another character.

    i then thought that it was kind of a "good" question.

    Best to do it with an armful of EOS-1Ds Mark III, EOS 5D Mark II, EF 50mm f/1.2L USM, EF 16-35mm f/2.8L II USM, EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM, EF 400mm f/2.8L IS USM etc.

    Of course with a Canon vest too.

    I'd probably want to try somersaults when I jump but the adrenaline would probably make me want to live my life all over again.

    Most people die of causes related to medical illnesses and as such we find them expiring while lying in bed. Mostly facing up.
    Therefore it would be correct to say that the vast majority of people die facing up.
    Any other position would be unconventional (either intentional or accidental).
    Me, I would personally like to take my last breath while sitting up like meditating like that, hopefully with a calm, peaceful state of mind.

    High voltage direct current will char the body, neither will he die in a second as his muscles and organs undergoes extremely painful thermal destruction while alive. Pulses of alternating current is used on electric chairs to render unconsciousness and induce fibrillation of the heart before the organs are destroyed instead.

    Probably the best facing to die is when the xmm you are shooting in macro-mode happened to be on top of you ...
    always the Light, .... always.

    I would like to die face down ....upon a beautiful girl.

    Don't think she would be too amused though

    But the reason that caused me to die might just help her get over it
    Time, is an effortless construction :)

    this question were asked at a movie i watched; Dakota Skye.

    I would choose to face up if i want to jump floor. If confirm want to die, might as well kick back and enjoy the ride before dying. 30th storey high, shld have abit of time before i land the ground, i will spread out my wings and "fly". But if can choose, i prefer to die in my sleep too. Preferably having sweet dreams and dun wake up. Put self timer and take my sleep photo.

    Another lame idea i thot of i will die is, my canon dslr jump floor from 30th storey, and i die of heart pain.
    Life is full of sh*t, anybody got toilet paper?
