      actualy freezing to death is one of the most painful ways to die. If i was in a burning building i would die from the smoke faster then the actual fire. If for some reason i was tied up and being burned its still way more likely the smoke would kill me.

      Actually did you know that in the final stages of hypothermia you actually seem to become so warm that most people will take off their clothes

      Hyperthermia involves your cells physically breaking down - instead of just ceasing to function. It never says you actually freeze - just that you die of hypothermia, which is purely to do with the cells.

      Cold doesnt always equal numb. trust me, youd feel it. If you died from heat, youd pass out long before you actually died.

    I don't think people are educated in this. When you're brain reaches a certain temperature, it shuts down, however, when you go below freezing your body does some ahem unpleasant things to keep you alive

      Towards some of the later stages of hypothermia you get the sensation of burning and alot of people begin to take o there clothes. So either way you would feel a burning sensation whether hypothermia or hyperthermia. But with hyperthermia you would die quicker.

    It's not burning to death. Hyperthermia is more like being stranded in the desert and your core temp getting to high. You would suffer from extreme fever.

    To die from the cold you would get frost bite and it would be very slow and agonizing at every move hyperthermia on the other hand you dehydrated in a day or so and pass out and don't wake up

    To die from heat you need to reach internal body temperature of about 42 °C and I've been pretty damn close so I know what it's like. I've never experienced hypothermia though and, I guess out of fear of the unknown, I chose hyperpyrexia.

    The people on Titanic froze to death. The water they were forced to be in was about 3°C.In the middle of the night. Imagine yourself in that situation. You woke up by a loud noise. After a while you decide to get up, there is water on the floor. You can't get up to boat deck because first class need to be in the lifeboats first. When you can go up it's too late. Not enough room in the lifeboats and time is running out.

    Difficulty in speaking, sluggish thinking, and amnesia start to appear; inability to use hands and stumbling is also usually present. Cellular metabolic processes shut down. Below 30 °C (86 °F), the exposed skin becomes blue and puffy, muscle coordination becomes very poor, walking becomes almost impossible, and the person exhibits incoherent/irrational behavior including terminal burrowing or even a stupor. Pulse and respiration rates decrease significantly, but fast heart rates (ventricular tachycardia, atrial fibrillation) can occur. Major organs fail. Clinical death occurs. Because of decreased cellular activity in stage 3 hypothermia, the body will actually take longer to undergo brain death.

      Burning is a horrible way to go. The way I imagine the hypothermia is going numb slowly, getting hallucinations, and eventually falling asleep as I shiver uncontrollably, which is something I'd take over being burned alive.

    Apparently there are a lot of people who have never experienced hypothermia. You do NOT go numb, and it excruciatingly painful, besides after about 10-12 minutes you go blind, how alone would you feel to die blind?

    With hypothermia, you would technically be brain dead, and I'm an organ doner. Also, someone documented his hypothermic suicide (morbid, I know) and he started to hallucinate and feel warm right before he died.

    I think it's quicker when you're freezing to death, as if you were killed by the smoke in a fire it would be kinda slow as you would be suffocating, and if the fire killed you, it would be extremely slow and painful.

    If you die from cold your body will freaking over heat tho, your body will be cold, but your brain will make you feel hot. Die if hear is not even good, since you'll start to die because you can't sweat anymore. Both are painful, but you'll die of heat faster than death of cold.

    when its cold your body literally shuts down piece by piece and trust me, it wouldnt be numb - youd feel it. but the heat would make you pass out long before you died
