I would run away if I were Brutus. We only live one life, after all. And we have to spend our lives wisely. To me, honor is less important than life. But if I am surrounded by Antony& Octavius' army, I would kill myself rather than being killed by them, because I don't want them to feel proud of killing me.
For me, I would also rather get killed than kill myself, because even if it is a noble act to kill yourself, I think it is more worthy to fight until you die. Like Yeajin, I would be known as a person who fought until she died.
Awwww Yeajin... You are cute!!!>< You wish one day you will be in Wikipedia or something? Anyway, I noticed that too. Brutus, Cassius and Tinitus commit suicide, Julius Caesar is killed. They all die by stabbing. But don't you think that would be painful? I would be scared to death! I would rather die in sleep by consuming medicines, which will be not painful way to die. Or I will jump off from cliff or something since I wanted to fly since I was young. Or gun shot. But I don't think there was gun powder in BC. I am scared of death because of the pain. So I will try to reduce all the pains I can get from dying.
In Shakespearean plays, lots of people are stabbed. As we saw, Julius Caesar, Tinitus, Cassius and Brutus all died by stabbing. In Hamlet, Hamlet, Claudius, and many other people die by stabbing. But for Hamlet's mom and dad, they get poisoned and Ophilia, Hamlet's girlfriend, die because she gets crazy and drowns. I think lots of tragedies of Shakespeare has stabbing scenes to dramatize and attract attentions toward scene.

Maybe this is me being a sellout, but prioritize these two things first. I'd make sure my chosen method of death was the least painful. I'd also want to make sure that the people that I'm leaving behind understood why i died, so they wouldn't end their life because of depression and such, and couldn't be harmed by the enemy.
Yes, i agree with you Brandon. I also believe that the way we choose to die or how we die depends on the honor beliefs within the society/culture we are in. But, if i had a choice of how to die I would choose the most easy way of dying that would be just shooting myself with a gun because we die fast and it will be less painful than killing myself slowly.
Well first of all before thinking of this thing of dieing to other people or commit suicide I would first think are there anyways to get out of this situation to avoid death which is best choice. If there are no choices to avoid death I would rather fight till the end and die to other because in Julius Caesar conspirators had chance of winning but unfortunatly they tought the possibility was too low that they decided to commit suicide. Which means low possiblity is no possiblity which is dumb way to think small posibility of winning things is still possiblity so I would fight to achieve that small posiblity then just commit suicide.
I think i'll just suicide because even if i fight, that doesn't mean I would die 100%. Let's say I was Cassius, and I fought in the battle. But I couldn't die, and I just caught by octavius. Then they will give pain to me, torture, for sake of Caesar, and get punishment by them. Also they will make me to say some secrets about the conspirators. Then it's worse than just suicide, therefore, I'll just commit suicide in that situation. Also it looks more honorable in that time period:D. It's just same as I will kill myself because I don't want to give any secret to my enemies, I'll die for my team
I would just drink a lot of pill and die that way, I don't want to die in a painful way no way am I going to do that, 1) I don't want to make a mess with lots of blood cuz that thing is disgusting 2) I don't want to look ugly whenI die, I want to look peaceful when I die
well...i would be scared to die...but if i were to die, i wouldnt do it by my hands...it would be too scary...for me...so if i had to die, i would die by fighting...but then...i would also like to die peacefully.
