Shouldn't abortion be on that list?

No because infants are not men.

"Yes. Thank you."

BOOM.

It would be nice.  I suspect it is reserved for His best of friends though.

I know a dude that got blown up.  One minute he is starting a compressor, the next moment he was waking up in a hospital bed.  Said it would be the easiest way to die.  Getting gassed with H2S is also an easy way out, but the last thing you smell is rotten eggs.

Rosie I have to share this with you. My grandmother loved Barn Dance on WLS radio. She was an immigrant Italian from Liguria. She loved the idea of American Cowboys and their singing like Gene Autrey, Roy and Dale, and Tex Ritter. She picked up alot of Americanisms through theses songs and movies. One of her favorite expressions for the way bad men were killed was she'd say "he died with his boots on." So what you said I find humorous.

The idea that a martyr had it "easy" is wrong.

You think one would find it easier to make the right choice at the last moment instead of living that choice?

Maybe practicing homosexuality should be on the list. According to this it takes 20 years off a man's life.

...and the diseses they die from I wouldn't wish on an enemy. All of which can be attributed to either their sexual proclivities or their abuse of alcohol and drugs. I read the original study from Scandanavia, but I can't find the whole thing anymore.

The life expectancy of sodomites is longer now, due to advances in science and medicine but it is still shorter than normal men.

Life expectancy of men is also shorter than women...because women nag men to death.

Straight shot to heaven.  Profess your Faith in Jesus.  Yeah, it is easy.  We're all going to die.  Better than wasting way with cancer thinking about it for months.  But like I said, probably only rarely do you get the bullet to the brain.  Much more likely to be carved up slowly or burned or something nasty.

But, I will add:  Spare me the test O Lord.

I have heard/read many such reports.

However, the killers in this case were specific conditions, not what led to them. So, the top killer of men seems to come down to "lifestyle" and "genetics".

What we do seems to have a very profound effect on what kills us given nothing else does in the meantime.
