Died by letting my friend into my mine...
I was afk for a second, in that while he just got all torches,
attacked me twice with a stone sword and filled the way up to the daylight with everything he had...
Did you ever got back to Minecraft and found yourself in a dark room with not-so-nice friends?

If you complain about those, complaining about something, you are complaining about yourself.
I was riding on my newly built mine cart track at night dodging arrows, spiders, and zombies.(did i mention it was three blocks above the ground)So when I neared the shack where i get on/off the mine cart, a creeper gave me a cold stare while directly on the tracks and then..........
I was looking for glowstone in MP on a fairly old map. It was all mined out already, so I had to go really deep in the Nether to get some. After a while, I saw a crystal hanging above a huge ocean of lava. Apparently, nobody could be bothered to mine it yet, so like a boss, with Shift pressed tight, I proceeded to build a netherrack bridge to get to it. Then, someone posted something in the chat and I immediately thought of a hilariously funny response and felt a strong urge the share it with the world. Make the rest up for yourselves.
I was going mining, found a dungeon, destroyed the spawner, and searched the chest. While I was searching in that unlit room, I heard "SSSSS...BOOM!" After I respawned (this was before Endermen were tweaked to not grab everything), a 1x2 hole was in my house. After scrambling to build a 1x2 dirt tower, I saw 8 zombies trying to kill me. Then a spider brought me down into the fray... I had to delete that world.
In my old world (but playing 1.0.0), jumping to play ping pong with a Ghast on a one metre wide bridge (a Nether subway line under construction) after running out of (and deflecting one fireball), about 30 blocks above :Lava:. Needless to say, I failed, and just barely missed :Lava:. However, in order to die, you don't necessarily have to fall on lava. Went splat on a block of netherrack and lost all my experience and about 2/3 of my items into :Lava:.
My respawn was in my second base of that world, 24 Overworld km (3 Nether km) away from where I died. Needless to say I used my Nether subway to get back to where I was.
On the way back to my stuff I tried going back without minecarts and let a zombie pigman kill me since I was using too much of my food meter. Took an extra minecart with me the next time and reached my Nether base after two kilometres of track and multiple zombie pigmen that were blocking the track killed with my fists (on Hard). Took some (in case I got my back), :gravel:, and (pork), and continued to where I fell off.
I managed to get what was left of my items back (:gravel: is awesome), which pretty much amounted to: a stack of :log:, a :Bench:, my :|):, a few :Bacon:, a bunch of :--+:, a minecart, and maybe one or two other useless things. Lost a :DSWORD:, about 35 levels, some :Glass:, and a few other things that weren't of too great value. My other diamond tools were not on me when I died, thankfully.
I walked some distance before finding a spot to pillar back up with :wood:. I later came back with my :Flint and Steel: to clean it up (I actually made a new one because I forgot I left the first one in the :chestfront:).
I played that world for a few more days (and tried out enchantments, obviously low level ones), gave up looking for a Nether fortress, went back to my very first Nether portal (Nether side) and tried the other way and found a fortress after about 300 m :sleep.gif:. However, most of it was cut off due to chunks generated waaaay back in early-mid beta, and what was left lacked Nether Wart and Blaze spawners (but I did see, but didn't fight, one Blaze). I've stopped playing that world since then.
I'll make sure to be careful with Ghasts (and fall damage in general) on my Hardcore world I created a few days ago. I've had a few other stupid deaths on my old world (I'm going to leave out the few early game events):
Building a mob tower underneath my fort (second base):
Making a pool of for me to land in at the bottom so I could fall from sea level to bedrock, then testing it. It wasn't deep enough.
I fell off once while building the tower (yes, I was building the tower underground). I was far enough along that I got to respawn.
Don't know if this counts, but my friends stupidest way to die was this:
(we were on skype the whole time) w were in a abandoned mineshaft. Me: "there's a creeper behind you!" Him: "there's no creeper behind me! what are you talking abou-"BOOOOOMM.
Famous last words: "there's no creeper behind me!"
I was riding a pig on the top of a mountain, fell and survived
Fell in a ravine and landed on a lava pit... Stupid pig
At least I found diamonds right next to the lava area that I died, I at least recovered my iron pick.
When I first got minecraft, creepers would have to be about two blocks away from you to explode, so in my small house (5x5) I could stand in the middle and be just far enough so that they can't explode and I could punch them through my glass-less windows. But when I updated to 1.7 their ranged increased a bit. And one day...ssssss what? How the f? Why are you blinking? Why are you blinking!! boom
So I was building a giant dirt tower just to pass the time and use-up all the stacks of dirt I collected during my terraforming adventures. I had JUST gotten a diamond chest plate and my final tool in my full iron set.
I was building walls onto the side of this tower when my finger twitched off of the SHIFT button. I fell about a third of the way down from the very top of my tower when I tried to recover and land on the stairway spiraling up.
Apparently that was too late.
I landed and about half of my stuff (including all my beautiful armor) got scattered across the terrain. Of course I had a half-opened cave system at the foot of my tower, so in all I spent an hour hunting-down all my stuff when I respawned. I'm not even sure at what point it all despawned and I hope whatever Creeper may have found my diamond chestplate is happy with it.
