I'd like to see what goes on in a functioning particle collider. I have little idea of how they work but I imagine it'd kill me somehow, especially once I start trying to catch these pesky particles in my mouth. Even better idea... those things use lots of magnets, right? Could I, in theory, wear a suit of something or other and get zipped around at the speed of light or thereabouts?

Failing that, I'd like to lock myself in a typical family freezer in such a manner that I would fall out of the freezer onto the first person to open it, hopefully headfirst and frozen rock hard. Naturally, I'd have to try to die with the "you did this to me" facial expression. That or the classic "what smells like manatee?" quizzical look.

Buy a very fast car (I'm thinking Veyron), and drive it very quickly into some sort of world-famous monument.

Dying after, maybe during lots of sex sounds alright, but dying from sex sounds pretty horrific. Seems like it might take more than a day too.

I'd want to read the fine print on this "deal" before hand, then I'd write a bunch of letters, find ways to get them delayed a couple of months, maybe something with voice messages too. Would need to think of a good place, twenty four hours isn't enough time to get any place important, so maybe just a shopping mall a state or two over... Do a little research into explosives, and get hold of strong enough sedatives to go violently in my sleep in, after thinking up a good title for my performance art piece.

You people have inspired me. I'd buy all the atomic and H-bombs in the world, and aim a certain number of them into each monument of significance to mankind. Then I'd proceed to mount in one (not sure which) and ride it to its destination, no forgetting the cowboy gear and hat.

Though it would take more than 24 hours to set up, I'd like to be placed in the tip of a rocket and fired into the moon. This would of course be recorded by some kind of telescope or satellite and broadcast live on TV.

An extension of my earlier posts and the post above. I would not just fly into the sun. Before I left, I would take a few stable strangelets on board with me, then let them "eat" me just before I die. Then, when my strange-corpse flies into the sun all the earthling get the end of civilization.

I guess that there's not enough time for anything really impressive.

It would be pretty sweet to film your last day and have it made into a 24 episode miniseries after you die. With all that money I'm sure you could make a pretty sweet show.

I would recreate the ending of Hero, but with shotguns. I'm not one for a long, drawn-out death like bleeding out.

Alternately, I'd create some obnoxiously contrived puzzle, a la Da Vinci code, seed clues all over the world with the promise of great riches at the end, then not leave the riches. Some poor sap is going to spend thousands of dollars trying to find my horde, and fail.

Two options:

1. Decide who in this world I dislike the most. Have implanted within me, possibly by removing some internal organs to make room (You don't need a stomach, intestines and only need one kidney and one lung, right?), rubber diaphragms filled with maggots, spiders, centipedes and other various disgusting creatures. Hop into a plane wearing a flying suit for BASE jumping. Jump out, aiming at said enemy and victim of my unwholy wrath. Then, prior to impact have a grating of wire, reinforced enough that I would merely be chopped into bits, erected in front of my victim so that my body is shredded, releasing the disgusting mess of horrible creatures upon his now bloodied being. Also, I guess I should have implanted within my head somewhere a playback device capable of surviving such trauma playing back the Joker laugh from Batman.

2. Buy a Colombian drug lord mansion and estate. Hire bodyguards. Hire as many as I can in 6 hours. Put out a message on every TV and radio station in the world a contract against my life of $[obscene amount]. Include my address. Specify that the contract is only valid if you kill me with a bladed weapon and that I will be armed only with a katana. Make sure the world knows they have 18 hours to collect.

Now I feel bad about it. That said, the second one is in the gaming forum, the third and fourth ones are about bad ways to die, and the fifth one is about things to do before you die, not while dying. The first one doesn't focus on epic-ness.

Okay, heres my plan. First, raptors are cloned and set loose on the world. Well, actually, that bit comes just after I escape to the moon in a rocket. My friends and stuff can escape somewhere too. At this point, I am on the moon, in some sort of cool looking space suit, not the bulky crap looking current ones. At this point, the moon begins accelerating towards the earth at approximately 1g, relative to its current acceleration. This time is spent firing pretty much any weapon I can get my hands on down at the earth. Then I finally die somewhere in the literally earthshattering collision, glad to have done something epically monumental with my 24 hours. Also, the raptors end up taking over what is left of the world.

Hey, I made a deal with the devil, so I had to make it evil.
