It would have to be with no pain and suffering. Just a quick death. Maybe on an airplane, but one that isn’t falling for a few minutes and you’re thinking about it. If the plane crashed quickly and you didn’t know what was happening, that would probably be the best way to have it crash.
From Mission Valley (Interpreter)
Well, I guess I’d want to go doing an extreme sport. Something like heli-skiing or skydiving. Maybe doing one of those base jumps into the Grand Canyon. Something exciting like that, where I’d go out in a blaze of glory.
From San Marcos (Heating and Air Conditioning)
Going really fast in my car out in the salt flats, until it blows up. I’ve spent $25,000 on my Datsun 240Z. It has an ’83 turbo engine, and if I died, I’d want it going at high speeds, with adrenaline involved; racing your car, going as fast as possible, and hitting a wall. It would be a fun way to go. And quick.
From San Marcos (Executive Marketing Manager)
I would want to die cuddling with Marky Mark Wahlberg. He’s hot as hell. I’m still upset that he didn’t get the Oscar nomination for Boogie Nights. I like him as an actor, and I thought he was cute when he did those underwear ads and dabbled in a music career.
From Pacific Beach (Bartender)
I guess I would want it to be nice and painless. I definitely don’t want to drown. I’m afraid of dying that way. I know how to swim and I used to surf. But I don’t go out in the ocean anymore because I’m afraid of being swallowed by a whale. I guess getting shot in the head would work, since it’s quick.
From Pacific Beach (Blueprints)
I don’t want it to be burning or in some kind of big explosion. Suffocation wouldn’t be good. I guess peacefully and being in a happy state would be the best way to go. You don’t want it to hurt too much. Perhaps peacefully in your sleep, having a nice dream.
