STRANGE DEATHS THREAD Anonymous 2099

I'll post the first one: Monica Meyer, the mayor of Betterton, Maryland, died while checking her town's sewage tanks. She fell in and drowned in 15 feet of human waste.

Aeschylus: Killed by a tortoise dropped by an eagle (possibly a lammergeier or Cinereous vulture, which open tortoises for eating by dropping them on hard objects) which had mistaken his head for a rock suitable for shattering the shell.

That tortoise was Socrates.

Too bad it wasn't Zeno, the Tortoise would have had to have fallen half the height between the eagle dropping it and Aeschylus's head, and then it would have to fall half of that, repeating infinitely never having actually hit the bald man's head and surviving.

Sage for offtopic.

There's some retard here who's been bumping this thread and then immediately deleting the bump for a month and it's kind of pathetic. I don't know who you are or why you keep doing that, but contribute or fuck off. I hate seeing this thread constantly on the front page with no new content.

The same random threads keep getting Russian spam posts. The mods delete the post but the bump remains.

Ohhhhh, there's some guy using an automated script that's probably linking directly to certain URLs associated with the threads and then executing from there. That makes sense I suppose, still annoying, but at least I don't feel like I'm slipping slowly into a schizophrenic episode.

I can't imagine how horrific drowning to death in molasses would be, nor how incredibly humiliating.

not a specific case, but there is a disease that gradually turns your muscles into bone, eventually making you completely unable to move.

it has 100% fatality and there is no cure.

i went to the mutter museum and saw the skeletons of the individuals mentioned in that article. its crazy. i looked at them for like 15 minutes straight just thinking about what it must have been like. i am very grateful that they were willing to donate their bodies. what a sad but fascinating disease

this disease is also just as fascinating/tragic to me

what disturbs me so deeply about lesch nyhan is that these individuals are self harm machines. this disease has destroyed one of their most fundamental traits of a living organism, the self-preservation instinct. they will do anything they can to hurt themselves, physically or otherwise. its like some kind of fairytale curse, but real. what seems most tragic are the ones who make it clear that they hate the pain but their body is hell bent on destroying itself and their mind cant tell it to stop
