What's the worst possible scenario that you can imagine dying in?
This particular writer recently watched a horror movie where someone was eaten alive by rats and, although fictional, that did not look fun.
Believe it or not, there are actually experts who have researched what would happen to you in some of the most ridiculous scenarios imaginable.
Paul Doherty is a senior scientist at San Francisco's Exploration museum and planetary scientist.
He was part of the research team for the Viking Mars mission and spent two years researching the most "interesting" ways to die.
Along with writer Cody Cassidy, he wrote a book called And Then You're Dead which looked into what would happen, for instance, if you were swallowed by a whale, jumped out of the International Space Station or went barrelling over Niagara Falls.
Last year he took part in a Reddit AMA where users were invited to ask Paul what possible ways there are to die.
We should warn you, a lot of these are a bit graphic.
Here are some of his best answers:
Is it possible to produce a sound that's loud enough to kill a person?
What would happen to your body if you were tied to a weight and sent to the bottom of the Mariana trench?
What would happen if you were floating within one mile of a neutron star?
What would happen if the cable snapped in an elevator? Is there anything you can do to help save yourself?
What happens if you jump through the centre of the Earth?
Other than a magnetar, are there any sources of magnetism that will kill you directly?
How much horsepower would a car need to kill you with acceleration?
How would it kill you if you put your hand into a particle accelerator?
Isn't there already a case where a person had his head in a particle accelerator and it got turned on?
