I rarely think about how I’d like to die, but if I did, I’d probably have mixed feelings about the freak accident. On one hand, if the accident were cool enough, it would be a cool way to go. On the other hand, everyone would know me as that person who died in a freak accident, but I’d be dead, so why would I care?
Death by flying bear would be among the cooler freak accidents, though. Without the context of the article, it’s not hard to imagine a bear flying out of nowhere and landing in one’s windshield, killing the passengers on impact. That story will probably be told to future generations of these poor people to make the death sound cooler.
Actually, death by flying bear would make a fun story. Anyone want to write it? I’m offering it up.
