    ALS. Long, painful, debilitating and no cure. Maybe Lupus too. Except for Leprosy, Polio and AIDs, the rest of your list is relatively quick.

    Cancer. Ugly, ugly way to die.

    If I had to choose from the list, I'd say Smallpox, the bad version Variola Major. In extreme cases your guts come out your rectum, or your skin turns black and sloughs off. I saw some pics of people dying of late stage variola major, and the suffering on their faces was really horrifying.

    On the bright side, I'll probably be shot or hung before I get a chance to die of natural causes...

    I'd say ebola, your organs disintegrate and you bleed from your pores, yikes.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    At least it's quick. There are plenty of hereditary diseases which we have no cure which prolong large amounts of pain for years on end.

    Personally, I'd rather suffer and die quickly then suffer for years on end and then die.
