How Not to Die

Sometimes I read a news story about someone dying and I think,

What a horrible way to die.

  • Burned to death.
  • Skinned alive.
  • Buried alive.
  • Crushed to death.
  • Flesh eating bacteria. (Necrotizing fasciitis)
  • Columbian necktie.
  • Lou Gehrig’s disease (Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis)
  • Any kind of hemorrhagic fever like Ebola or Hantavirus or anything that makes you bleed profusely from all orifices.
  • Anytime the word orifice is used in conjunction with death.
  • Anytime the word festering is used in conjunction with death.
  • Eaten by a shark or insects.

That's a pretty scary list right? This list has stayed the same for me for decades. The order may change but the list remained static ... that is until last week.

There is now a new terrible way to die and I think it enters at #1.

It's said that the the girls in Changsha are "Spicy Beauties" because of their temper.
