Death is the ultimate end for all living beings. At least in this world. People are often afraid of their end but these few extraordinary badass individuals used their last words to mock death.
1. Edward H. Rulloff.
Rulloff had quite the appetite for murder. He was caught for murdering his wife and daughter but escaped. He later went on to kill another innocent man before he was brought to justice. His last words which he used to mock his own death were “Hurry it up. I want to be in hell in time for dinner.”
2. Peter Kurten.
Dubbed as The Vampire of Duesseldorf. He committed murders and sexual assaults between 1929 and 1930. He was sentenced to death by the guillotine in 1932 and his final words moments before his death were as follows “Tell me, after my head is chopped off, will I still be able to hear the sound of my own blood gushing from the stump of my neck? That will be a pleasure to end all pleasures!”
3. Gioachino Rossini.
An Italian composer who irked a lot of people by deviating from the traditional form of opera. Even Beethoven himself remarked that Rossini should have been spanked by his teacher. His death was quite painful as he died of rectal cancer. During his dying moments, he deliriously said “What are you doing blessed Virgin? You can do it if you like, it all depends on you. Come on now be quick.”
4. George Appel.
George was convicted of the murder of a Police Officer in New York City 1928. He was sentenced to death by electric chair. His last words in which he made sure to mock his death were ” Well gentlemen you are about to see a big Appel.”
5. Frederick Charles Wood.
Woods was sentenced to death for the mother of 5 people 1963. He requested the electric chair saying that he wanted to ride the lightning like a badass. His final words to mock his own death were “ Gents this is an educational project. You are about to witness the damaging effect electricity has on Wood.”
6. Catharina Goethe.
This woman has got to be the sassiest one on this list. In 1808 while on her deathbed, Catharina received a party invitation. She responded to this invitation in the most badass way. Her words to her servant were “Say that Grau Goethe is unable to come. She is busy dying at the moment.” What a badass!
7. Richard Feynman.
Richard was an important figure in the science community who was known to be able to explain complex scientific concepts with ease. At the age of 61, he was diagnosed with a tumour in his abdomen. He fought a long and hard battle with his illness for 8 long years before finally succumbing to it. The last thing he said before his death was sure to mock it. They were “I’d hate to die twice. It’s boring.”
8. Jane Austen.
Jane’s death is shrouded in mystery. It is said that her body was decaying even when she was alive. Her final words were “I want nothing but death.” Seems like she embraced death on her own terms.
9. Robert Alton Harris.
Harris and his brother/partner in crime were arrested for kidnapping two boys, stealing their cars and later using it for a bank robbery. He was executed in 1992 by gas chamber. His final mock words towards death were “You can be a king or a street sweeper, but everyone dances with the Grimm Reaper.”
10. Robert Charles Comer.
Comer impersonated as a DEA agent and assaulted a couple who were camping on a remote trail. He raped the woman and killed her boyfriend. He was executed by lethal injection and his final words which he used to straight up mock everyone were “Go Raiders.”
11. Niccolo Machiavelli.
A Renaissance-era diplomat and historian. Niccolo had a terrible dream on his deathbed. He saw that rich man in beautiful clothing was going to hell whereas the poor peasants and monks were going to heaven. On waking up, he mused “I desire to go to hell, not heaven. In hell, I shall enjoy the company of popes and kings and prince’s but in heaven are only beggars, monks, hermits and apostles.
12. Jean Cocteu.
Jean was a famous poet and novelist. When his closest fried Edith Piaf died in 1983, Jean was so heartbroken that soon after due to heart attack. His last words were “Since the day of my birth my death began its walk. It is walking towards me without hurrying.”
