    I'd have to say smallpox, it just looks ugly and painful.

    Love
    And why does your tone suggest that you do not care about children?

    The one that turns people into zombies. One should be able to get some rest when they die.

    Rabies essentially does that.

    Personally, I'd rather suffer and die quickly then suffer for years on end and then die.
    I dunno, intense pain, even quickly is still pretty bad, I would think the agony alone would make time seem to pass much slower.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Ebola or Marburg...take your pick.

    That disease that makes you think bugs are under your skin. I think scratching yourself to death would be pretty brutal.

    Re: Worst disease to die from

    A good friend of my brothers in Wausau Wisconsin who owns "Toxic Choppers" which is a custom motorcycle shop cut his foot swimming. He thought nothing of it and treated it like all his other cuts and wounds. (Not at all). While walking barefoot in the woods he got it infected with the first known case in Wis. A flesh eating disease started to eat its way from the wound and quickly up the leg! Soon the doctors who never seen an infection like this before were debating and actually arguing about how they better amputate his leg! Luckily for him one doctor did some quick research and made a command decision to cut the skin away. The flesh eating disease was only on the skin and a graph was all that ended up being needed! He almost lost his leg over this! kinda makes a person think.

    Ever since seeing his scars, his personal photos of the wound and the newspaper headlines, etc. I now always clean and protect my cuts!.......

    Re: Worst disease to die from

    I really haven't a clue (I've died from almost none of this diseases), but botulism is the most fun to say, so I chose that one.
