Methods of Death & How They Feel
Drowning: When victims eventually submerge, they hold their breath for as long as possible, typically 30 to 90 seconds. After that, they inhale some water, splutter, cough and inhale more. Survivors say there is a feeling of tearing and a burning sensation in the chest as water goes down into the airway. Then that sort of slips into a feeling of calmness and tranquility. That calmness represents the beginnings of the loss of consciousness from oxygen deprivation, which eventually results in the heart stopping and brain death.
Heart Attack: The most common symptom is chest pain: a tightness, pressure or squeezing, often described as an “elephant on my chest”, which may be lasting or come and go. This is the heart muscle struggling and dying from oxygen deprivation. Pain can radiate to the jaw, throat, back, belly and arms. Other signs and symptoms include shortness of breath, nausea and cold sweats.
Bleeding to Death:  Anyone losing 1.5 litres – either through an external wound or internal bleeding – feels weak, thirsty and anxious, and would be breathing fast. By 2 litres, people experience dizziness, confusion and then eventual unconsciousness.
Fire: Burns inflict immediate and intense pain through stimulation of the pain nerves in the skin. To make matters worse, burns also trigger a rapid inflammatory response, which boosts sensitivity to pain in the injured tissues and surrounding areas.As burn intensities progress, some feeling is lost but not much. 3rd degree burns don’t hurt as much as 2nd degree burns.
Decapitation: Very quick. Consciousness is said to continue for a few seconds after decapitation. It’s thought to be painless. But the separation of the spinal cord and brain may cause severe pain.
Electrocution: Higher currents can produce nearly immediate unconsciousness. The electric chair was designed to produce instant loss of consciousness and painless death, but that’s debatable. It’s been proposed that prisoners could instead be dying from heating of the brain, or perhaps from suffocation due to paralysis of the breathing muscles instead of electrocution itself because the skulls of the wall are a thick and powerful insulator. 
Falling from a height: Another instantaneous death. Survivors of great falls often report the sensation of time slowing down. The natural reaction is to struggle to maintain a feet-first landing, resulting in fractures to the leg bones, lower spinal column and life-threatening broken pelvises. The impact traveling up through the body can also burst the aorta and heart chambers. 
Hanging: The rope puts pressure on the windpipe and the arteries to the brain. This can cause unconsciousness in 10 seconds, but it takes longer if the noose is incorrectly sited. Witnesses of public hangings often reported victims “dancing” in pain at the end of the rope, struggling violently as they asphyxiated. 
Lethal injection: . First comes the anaesthetic thiopental to speed away any feelings of pain, followed by a paralytic agent called pancuronium to stop breathing. Finally potassium chloride is injected, which stops the heart almost instantly. Eyewitnesses have reported inmates convulsing, heaving and attempting to sit up during the procedure, suggesting it’s not always completely effective.
Vacuum (In Outer Space): When the external air pressure suddenly drops, the air in the lungs expands, tearing the fragile gas exchange tissues. This is especially damaging if the victim neglects to exhale prior to decompression or tries to hold their breath. Oxygen begins to escape from the blood and lungs. Human survivors from NASA often report an initial pain, like being hit in the chest, and may remember feeling air escape from their lungs and the inability to inhale. Time to the loss of consciousness was generally less than 15 seconds.

Can I ask what is gamergate? Searching it on google is just leading me to articles that are biased towards feminism without actually explaining what it is.

dontneedfeminism:

I’ll try to explain it as simply as possible.

>Zoe Quinn’s ex-bf makes a blog post
>Blog post details how she has cheated on him with 5 guys, among other things
>Only names 3 of the 5 men, the other 2 are as of yet unknown, though people have speculated on their names.
>The 3 men that were named are all involved to some degree in video games journalism
>It’s found out that her relationships with these men happened around the same time as they were writing positive articles about her game “Depression Quest
>This leads to people believing (rightfully) that there is corruption and collusion within games journalism
>Eventually it’s found out that there were more people involved, including Anita Sarkeesian
>Even a person who was judging some kind of indie-game competition was having a relationship with one of the contestants
>Game journalists start posting articles mocking gamers, saying they’re dead, etc.
>Find out that there’s a secret mailing list among game journalists that they use to post articles simultaneously
>Actually use this list to attempt to drown out the article that exposed the list itself.

>The gaming journalists and Feminists on twitter try to shut down a project by The Fine Young Capitalists
>Project was meant to help get more women in to game development
>4chan, specifically the /v/ board, as well as other websites like Funnyjunk, completely fund the project, and are allowed to create a character for the game that will be made
>Character is called “Vivian James” a spin off of “vidya games”

>Discussion about gamergate is being censored pretty much everywhere that it’s possible for them to censor it.
>Mods on 4chan are banning all the threads on the subject, with Moot’s approval
>Moot himself is suspected to have a relationship with a woman who is part of a company working with Gawker media
>Gawker media owns websites such as kotaku and Jezebel.
>Thousands of comments on Reddit boards are also deleted.

>Fast forward to the last couple of weeks
>Gamers have started e-mailing advertisers and urging them to pull their ads off of these “gaming journalism” websites.
>So far at least 4 companies have done so, including 2 big brands, Intel and Mercedes-Benz
>Obviously, gaming journalists are butthurt now because they’re losing money.
>They still don’t try and apologize or anything even remotely recognizing reconciliation, not that it would be accepted in the first place

>Anita Sarkeesian was supposed to give a talk at Utah State University recently
>University received threats
>Due to carry laws in the state, police could not legally keep anyone who had a weapon from going to her talk
>She cancels it
>She uses this to say that anyone who supports gamergate is “implicitly supporting the harassment of women”.
>These threats were found to be no different than any of the other she claims she has received before, by both police and university officials, and no previous threats have amounted to anything before, so there was no reason to believe these ones would
>Pretty much everyone now using these threats as ammo against gamers, as per usual.

If you want something more in-depth, or at least more well organized, you can watch the “Quinnspiracy Theory” videos on youtube from InternetAristocrat.
