Strangest Ways To Die

Death is the termination of thebiological functions that sustain aliving organism. The word refers both to the particular processes of life’s cessation as well as to the condition or state of a formerly living body. Phenomena which commonly bring about death include predation,malnutrition, disease, and accidents or intentional trauma resulting in terminalinjury.
The nature of death has been for millennia a central concern of the world’s religious traditions and ofphilosophical enquiry, and belief in some kind of afterlife or rebirth has been a central aspect of religious faith. In modern scientific enquiry, the origin and nature of consciousness has yet to be fully understood; any such view about the existence or non-existence of consciousness after death therefore remains speculative.
The word death comes from Old English deað, which in turn comes from Proto-Germanic *dauþaz (reconstructed by etymological analysis). This comes from the Proto-Indo-European stem *dheu- meaning the ‘Process, act, condition of dying’.
Dauþaz was reconstructed through the use of the daughter tongues of Proto-Germanic, such as doth from Old Saxon, dath from Old Frisian, dood from Dutch, tod from Old High German, dauði from Old Norse and modern-day Icelandic, död from Swedish, and dauþas from Gothic.
