Falling Down – My Machine of Death story. A few things to know before reading it:

The MoD is a machine that can tell, from just a sample of your blood, how you are going to die. It doesn’t give you the date and it doesn’t give you specifics. It just spits out a sliver of paper upon which is printed, in careful block letters, the words DROWNED or CANCER or OLD AGE or CHOKED ON A HANDFUL OF POPCORN. The predictions were sometimes vague, and sometimes maddening, but they always came true. The machine was never wrong.

As with all the MoD stories, the title is the death prediction. You can read the entire first collection of stories here.
