Which is worse: burning or freezing to death?

Burning would be over fairly quickly. It would be a long, slow death with freezing.

Burning I reckon would be worse. I'd prefer to be uncomfortably numb.

You drift off to sleep freezing...I can only imagine how traumatic burning would be...I choose freezing.

Rather a minute of agony than hours of extreme discomfort (though not pain). I was in situations where I felt cold enough to shiver violently, and those hours seemed to last forever. You think about NOTHING but c-c-coooooold!

Freezing would take longer and honestly, I can't even tolerate a cold can of pop placed against my neck. It's painful, so I'd go with burn.

Severe burns destroy the nerves so it only hurts for a bit. So whereas the pain would be immense, it would be over fast.

True, but I feel like it would be more painful to burn to death.

Same. However, frost bite I think would be very uncomfortable.

I can see your point though. Freezing would probably be painless.
