Sinking in a Japan trench dubbed most favourable way to die
Sinking to the bottom of the 36,000 feet Mariana Trench in Japan, has been dubbed the most popular way to die.
Californian scientist Paul Doherty and writer Cody Casey investigated ways in which people would prefer to die as part of research for their book 'And Then You're Dead' and they were bombarded with bizarre requests to the ways people wanted to end their lives.
Responding to the weird request, the pair wrote:
"Fortunately you're mostly water, and water is incompressible, so you would retain your basic human shape ...
"The air pockets inside you, namely in your nasal cavity, throat and chest, would be a problem. Those would collapse inward, which would fatal' (sic)"
Others voted being stuck in a falling elevator, getting too close to a neutron star, being hit by a particle accelerator and jumping into a hole in the earth as their favourable ways to die.
