"There are some things worse than death..."

I would agree with that phrase.

Do you?

If so, what are some scenarios that you believe back this up?

If not, why not?

I don't know, I think one thing worse than death is abuse-physical, emotional, sexual. If there's no other way out I think death would be better

Having to renounce something that's at the core of your being, to "sell your soul" so to speak - I think that could be worse than death

I think maybe to have to deny who you are, whatever form that could take, might be worse than death

Pain, emotional or physical, can certainly feel/be worse than death sometimes

I think there are a lot of things worse than death.

I don't fear death, I don't think death is that bad. Not that I'm wishing it on myself or anyone else, but I'm comfortable with the idea that someday I will die and I have no choice about that.

Everybody dies at some point. Hate to break it to you. Emotional pain is much worse than physical pain, to cash in my three cents.

I don't fear death at all, maybe just dying in some horrible fashion -the process of dying scares me, not what comes after. I'm hoping what comes after will be fantastic. My belief is that it will be. Quick and painless is the best way, if there is a painless way to die.

I'd much rather die an early death than experience what I've seen some elderly people go through-that's worse than death.

I'd also say sitting around "waiting to die" w/ not much happiness in your life is worse than death.

Loneliness can feel worse than death

well.. apparently public speaking is more feared than death, so it has to be worse. a seinfeld jewel: in a funeral, some people would rather be in the casket than do the eulogy.

That FACT makes the textbooks for many Public Speaking classes. "Death" is pretty vague though. I'm more concerned about HOW I die than dying itself. I think most people would agree on that much.

the only thing that pissed me off about death is that i might not be able to do whatever the hell i like afterwards

itd be nice to be resurrected every once in a while to see your friends and do things you liked doing
