I think being stabbed would be the most painful way to be murdered. That first plunge of an ice-cold blade ripping into my flesh. And then slashing into the soft tissues of my adam's apple and face, especially around the eyes.

What do you think would be a painful way to be murdered?

To wake up from the nightmare of life that I had assumed to be a dream to discover not relief but nothing at all. The murder would be the act of being 100% convinced (by whatever external force of convincing) that the enforced anticipation of that form of waking up a few seconds before I actually wake up to find my enforced anticipation was indeed about to be borne out.

Sorry, Barry, I just realised that what I just said makes no sense at all!

Sorry, Barry, I just realised that what I just said makes no sense at all!Thanks for the update, des. I kept thinking that if I read it one more time I could follow the logic. Then again, maybe getting lost in the mirror cycle of life/dream/murder/rebirth was your subconscious intent. For me, the mood conveyed was evocative of a panic attack on an existential level.

Thanks, des. I thought it must make sense but it doesn't. And if I read it one more time....

Barry,

No method is pleasant or preferable. Slow vivisection has to be my number one selection for my own most painful murder. (I never thought that I'd type a statement like that.) What a gruesome way to go. Messy, too.

I think being eaten alive would be rather unpleasant

Fire, bad LSD, a blunt axe, asphyxiation, flaying, needles, a nice rusty razor...

Some combination of those.

Ha. Good to know we can always count on Barry to bring out the cheerful topics ;)

I'd have to say the most painful way to snuff it, in my opinion, would to be murdered by some one you trust or a loved one. Imagine the bitter cocktail of pain and utter disbelief! The last word to pass your lips or flash across your brain would be simply, "Why?".

I think my last word, if that were to happen, would be "Asshole"...or something of the sort. But "Why?" would definitely be said at some point during those last moments

Or how about by everyone you trust? (One or two for some...)

Most painful? Being eaten alive by a pack of wild hungry dogs with rabies... A friend of mine was practically mutilated whole by a single dog years ago (he's still recovering) and he tells horror stories about it.... and we're talking about an ordinary "civilized" dog who just went ape#### on him.

That or being lectured on 19th century post colonial social studies, whatever variety of pain you find of your fancy :wink:

I've always sympathized with victims of brutal stabbings myself. I cannot imagine the physical pain of a knife tearing through your flesh. Wow, I just really psyched myself up for the day!

Wow. That's a tad surreal. If you rule out Mi-Go and the Whateleys, that's just plain weird.

Maybe I'm very different from most of the other members of this website but No work of fictional or theatrical horror even matched my reading of a popular history on the battle of Verdun in France in the First World War. In an area only 47 square miles in size (That's the size of the city of San Francisco) millions of men killed each other for almost a year. Over a million men died and several million others were wounded - some horribly. I think that more than any painful way to die that the situation at Verdun, where all around you were murdered daily by artillery and machine guns month after month, season after season, is by far the worst possible. Sometimes it is much worse to stay alive.

Being alive, and being born. Also, dying of child-birth, especially when that child grows up to be just another foul-mouthed junkie impregnating lassies right and left. More contaminated meat for the human race!

It's weird, I remember hearing about a guy who got stabbed in the back and said he thought he was just punched and it wasn't that painful but yet did do damage on him. Maybe he was just lucky to not feel the pain that bad.

I've heard the same and in my current line of work, the pain felt by even a really deep dog bite is very peculiar in that the initial feeling isn't really pain as one might imagine it to be. It's more of an extreme, jolting pressure that overwhelms you and is accompanied by a panicy, " I know something horrible just happened but I can't process it quickly enough" feeling. The worst pain comes the following day, when every heartbeat sends a giant surge of excruciating pain to the wound, and then back through your entire body just for ####s and giggles.

When I worked at a shipping facility during high school I always feared being pushed into the trash compactor. I couldn't help but imagine what each body part would feel and sound like while being slowly crushed under the constant pressure.

Okay, I know this will make some people go, "What the hell?" but I'm going to tell people what is the most painful way to be killed because I think I've experienced it a little... I had this extremely painful, unorthodox dream that I am including in a short story I'm writing.

I dreamed of an idyllic town where everyone cultivated the land and played chess. Everyone was jolly until strange beings from the sky invaded and started mutilating everyone. I experienced everyone's unique private experience and pain; it felt as if the feeling of loss was stronger than gain in life. Eventually everyone in the dream stood still and stared away from the dream's circumference towards "me" asking why I dreamt them into existence just to suffer.

I appeared as a golden bodhisattva, don't know how, and promised to stop the onslaught from the alien invaders. I was able to mitigate their damage and send them back, but as a consequence, the land was no longer arable. New children were born and played amongst a river that froze into black ooze while the older generation remained with the harsh memories, jaded from realizing they can never enjoy life like before the onslaught.

In short: the most painful way to die is to become a pantheistic deity because life is about pain and loss ultimately. You would consequently feel the pain and suffering of everyone without division because that what life truly is. Their groaning and lamentation shall come in unison as one voice. There would be a multiplicity of dying and suffering within your One Body, and you'll be slowly murdered as you can feel everything deteriorate or something like that.

The dream was depressing as hell, but I liked it, I guess. It's kind of like a dream Mainlander would have.

Physical pain: I've been reading some things on Mexican drug cartels, and there's evidence suggesting some of them have boiled people while alive and conscious. I can't imagine a murder more painful than that.

Otherwise I'll go with the pantheistic route as related by With Strength I Burn. That does sound awfully awful.
