1000 Ways To Die Wiki

"Therm-Assed", Way to Die #548: is the seventh and last death featured in "Grave Decisions: The Halloween Episode", which aired October 31, 2011.


A miserable teenage girl named Michelle forced into going to a religious retreat by her parents slips some crushed ecstasy into everyone's dinner. After the drugs take effect, one of the campers smashes a guitar near the campfire. Michelle chokes on the soot that is blown in her face. She grabs a nearby Thermos and gulps its contents, not knowing that it is filled with leftover hot water from the campfire that was boiled earlier in the night. Failing to spit the water out (due to the effect of ecstasy), she suffers severe burns to her epiglottis, which swells up and blocks her airway. She then loses consciousness and soon dies. The campers pray for her soul.

"Tonight, Michelle decided she was gonna share with her brothers and sisters by spiking dinner with several milligrams of ecstasy. It didn't take long for these happy campers to go from holy rollers...to horndogs. Michelle sat back to enjoy the show...but she suddenly a little choked up. After inhaling the soot from the fire, Michelle grabbed a Thermos to clear her throat. It didn't go down too well."
