Eaten by a shark, since at least my body is being used for something useful. (Though if I drown and nobody recovers my body then it would be useful for other marine life.)

At my first job one of the interview questions they liked to ask was "would you rather be killed by a shark or lion? why?"

They were pretty critical of any shark-people

Would you rather quickly lose a bunch of money while gambling and slowly win it back, or quickly win a bunch of money and slowly lose it?
