RevenFat takes ages to burn. Everyone has fat, and it surrounds our bodies. Before the fire can harm the internal organs, it must burn through all the fat around your body, taking quite a long time. It is supposed to be the most painful way of death. I'd freeze to death, because it wouldn't take too long for the cold to shut down by brain plus it wouldn't be painful.

Well there is a difference between being rosted to death and burned to death. If you are burned chances are that the oxygen around you will be used in the process, so you'll get unconscious rather quickly. If you are roasted you will pass out because of the pain.

I'd definitely prefer hypothermia. Although I've never experienced such low temperatures for that long, I've had more experience being cold for long stretches of time than literally being on fire, and I prefer cold to heat anyway. From what I have been through, freezing isn't very painful as such, while burning to death sounds like it could be extremely unpleasant, indeed.

Il take freezing to death, As 5 minutes of being burned would probably seem a long time. :uhm:

Fire quickly burns the pain receptors in your skin. You don't feel it after a while.

I can't tolerate the heat like I can to the cold, so that would be worse. :uhm:

It epends , by how much cold your being exposed to untill you freeze to death, how much fat you have on your body, and the clothing your waearing. THese variants depend on ;1) if I will freeze to death , 2) how iuckly, and how painfull my death will be. If I'm wearing a fleece jacket, and am anerexly, thin, and the temputure is high enough I would only encouter sevral minutes of extreme cold andpain, till my body goes colpletly numb, and I start losing focus and energy,eventulaly dieng, but in the end it will be realtivly painless. While compared to burning, a 5 minute death, jeez... It's not that hot of a falme. And the intens pain endured for the five minutes, the burning , of the tissue, nerves, your organs bieng killed off by this flame, jeez, freeze me, at leest there be able to have a funral.:lookaround:

One thing no one has mentioned is boiling to death. Boiling to death is much more painful than burning to death. As burning to death burns away the skin and the pain receptors, boiling doesn't quite have the same effect. It is possible to sit in boiling water for ten minutes without dying if your head is not submerged in the water. But that isn't likely as the stress put on your body will probably cause your brain to clot up with blood and you will die.

Yeah, XC--the death by immolation would be over in probably two minutes and you'd technically die in another minute, or two max. I think the cooking of the brain would generally cause unconsciousness after a minute--plus, something I never thought of: --you'd probably pass out before your brain fried...no oxygen would get into your lungs, since the fire would be covering you and using it all. So as for the period of time of consciousness before death, it's starting to look like this: Hyperthermia: 1 minute ... with unbearable agony. Hypothermia: 1 to 1.5 hours ... with increasing pain, mild to severe shivering, giving way to numbness. By the look of the results, I really need a new hobby ...as well as :coffee:
