Unusual Deaths


Lab Technician
A friend & I found a very interesting wikipedia page that listed strange deaths, we were literally laughing for an hour :p I just thought I'd share it with you all...

My favorites are:
620 BC: Draco, Athenian law-maker, was smothered to death by gifts of cloaks showered upon him by appreciative citizens at a theatre on Aegina
1991: Carl Hulsey, 77, of Cherokee County, Georgia, was butted to death by a pet goat he had been training to act as a "guard dog".
The Darwin Awards website is always good for this. I did have one of the books. They list deaths caused by human stupidity or lack of common sense.
