*nuclear war
*gain-of-function biotech released pandemic
*superintelligent ai.. or aliens
*heart disease
*cancer
*pollution
*cold weather
*respiratory infection [mundane]
*accidental drug overdose
*suicide
*murdered by civilian [mundane]
*hot weather
*drowning
*electrocution
*killed by police
*insect sting
*asteroid collision
*lightning strike
*spanish inquisition

Nuclear war looks to be way too high up there.

Spanish inquisition looks way too low. I put it higher and rename it to Trump’s Vanity Project.

I would put heart disease and pollution on top. Suicide on third place followed by Trump’s Vanity Project.

On fiifth place I put Killed by police, and on sixth drug overdose. Seventh place goes to death by insect sting.

Civil war should be pretty high... might be a subset of civil war though.

Car accidents are common.

Also avalanches falls tree wells and other climbing/skiing accidents.

I'm going just like my grandfather. In my sleep. Not like the 6 screaming passengers in the van he was driving.

To be honest, I probably heard it in Marek's Cafe. a bar I used to hang out in in Hulmeville Pa.

But Will Rogers would be a likely candidate. Great comedian and prognosticator.

insert "killed by non-citizen" [~1950 per year] between "fire" [~3700/year] and "killed by police" [~1100/year]
