Dumb Ways To Die — and a Smart Way?

I loved this video by the Australian Metro: a cheerfully ghoulish collection of really stupid ways to pass on. 

But the question arose (posed by a Facebook friend) — what’s a “smart” way to die? 

My “smart way to die” submission, just off the top of my head:

“Leading a charge up a hill in the face of enemy fire to successfully save your endangered infantry platoon, and then — just as you’re being cheered by your grateful fellow soldiers, plus your adoring mother and stunning girlfriend (who have suddenly arrived on site separately by sheer coincidence, the one bringing fresh-baked brownies, the other to show you her newest Victoria’s Secret lingerie) — tripping and falling into a cleverly-disguised enemy booby-trap consisting of a deep & inescapable vat of bourbon-flavored morphine.” 

Glug, glug, ahhhhh…
