About This Quiz

Some people say that life is complicated but death easy, but we disagree. As many ways as there are to live, there are just as many ways to die. And if you factor all of your pasts lives into the equation that's countless lives and deaths. Some might be simple, but others might be strange, wild, or completely unusual. Death is a sensitive and touchy subject for many, but it is a big part of the entire natural world, the natural order, and life itself. After all, you cannot have life without death. However, this quiz is definitely not for the faint of heart or those who scare easily!  

So, put us to the test. Answer our questions and we will figure out exactly how you died in a past life that was absolutely gnarly. Did you get trampled by horses, did you drown in the sea, or did something illegal or strange you were doing ultimately lead to your demise? Life is often cruel, complicated, and dangerous and rarely ever fair. Were you one of history's countless victims of war, disease, or something else? Take this quiz and find out the worst way one of your past incarnations passed away.
