Worse way to go?

Saw him play for Ulster a couple of times, he seemed such a happy bloke.
What a terrifyingly awful accident. And to rob three members of the same family, jesus
this isn't the bible!
at the rugby sunday
we all decided it was an awful way to go
The reason people die in slurry pits (I covered the story of two people dying in a slurry pit when I worked on a local newspaper) is the gas - when they're opened, the rush of methane and stuff coming off suffocates you, hence people fall into the pit unconscious, and they drown without waking up again.
I think for horrible deaths, burning alive must be most painful, and buried alive most psychologically disturbing.
although the bit before that would be horrible.
I think one of the worse ways would be boiled alive (which I saw in the Tudors so must be true).
Yeah you'd drown but by gluping down boiling water. <shudders>
(which we have had before with lots of disturbing answers).
I'm pretty sure Wikipedia has a page full solely of horrendous methods of execution.
