    Is there a worse way to die?

    Ok, admittedly it didn't happen in this specific case

    but it was a close call!

    I always thought something like this would be the absolute worst way to go, and an en passant proof that maybe the gods above do exist after all, but they clearly hate us.

    I always thought the worst way to die was to die while sitting on a toilet with your pants down. :)

    That, or if you were overweight and died eating a ham sandwich....

    I know there's a funny way to inject something about the "S**t happens" expression here, but I'm too brain-dead to do so right now.

    I think that getting killed instantly by a falling ball of frozen excrement would be, well, bad, but not as bad as, say, being eaten by sharks.

    Not that this one involved anyone dying, but recently in Chicago a Dave Matthews Band tour bus "accidentally" unloaded several hundred gallons of waste water while driving on a steel grate bridge over the Chicago river.

    Now, waste in the Chicago river is really nothing new, but combine the excrement ejection with an open-roof tour boat going underneath the bridge at the same time, and now you have something interesting...

    1. I don't like the word 'turd'. ever. You might as well buy the trailor and pink plastic lawn flamingoes now, if it's part of your vocabulary... but i digress :)

    2. You'd think they'd figure something better out for disposing of airplane waste. This has never made sense to me.

    3. Dave Matthews is facing civil and potentially criminal charges for the incident, which he was not even present for. Sure, it was *his* feces spread over 100 people, but that's enough to be arrested for now?! Bah, i hope the whole thing goes away, the bus driver deserves to be punished-- not matthews.

    I saw that story on our local news last week. That definitely tops the list of something nasty. With the block of ice the person would never know what hit them.

    Yes, but as usual, it's go after the largest target (in terms of pocketbook). I'm pretty sure Dave didn't do out and tell his bus driver to discharge sewage into the river - he probably had other things on his mind...

    There was also talk that it was an accident. Hmmm. Just happened to push the "empty waste tank" button as I was driving on a steel grate bridge over a river? A little coincidental, I'd say.

    Worst ways to die


    From the film 'Lock Stock and two smoking barrels'

    "He was beaten to death with a 12 inch black rubber cock"

    Or how about from Top Secret! (1984):

    "Evidently your friend did not realize that here in East Germany we use 220 volt current. He was found in his hotel room impaled upon a large electrical device. Our surgeons did what they could, but it took them two hours just to get the smile off his face."

    If you've seen this classic movie, you'll get it... :D :D

    Black...white.....its weird either way.

    There was a person in the neighbourhood beside me who had waste accidentally dropped onto the roof of his house, and it put a big hole in it. Disgusting. They left and stayed at a hotel for 2 weeks and told the airline to clean it up. :D

    Killed WHILE Dropping a T**d

    Sorry - no link for this as it happened about 25 years ago.

    I was a supervisor with an armed guard firm in Long Beach, CA. Two of our guards had been posted to a brand new Bank of America branch to watch over the bank's gala grand opening celebration.

    One of our guards went into the Men's Room and proceeded to "practice" his quick draw technique in front of the mirror.

    Unfortunately, his technique was a bit unrefined and he accidently discharged his weapon, firing the bullet through the wall of the bathroom and within inches of a women sitting on a toilet in the Women's.

    Apparently, she had just reached for her purse - had she been sitting upright she's have been shot where she ****.

    That's almost too far-fetched to believe.....but knowing people....

    I assume he was fired and relieved of his weapon

    He was not only fired, but discharging a weapon in a bank building is a violation of federal law and the poor guy was turned over to the FBI. That was back in 1974 or '75 - can you imagine the mess he'd be in these days?

    Unless Australians aren't quite as tight on the enviroment as the US is on these things (highly doubtful) this had to be an accident. US carriers, unless in an emergency, can't dump the lavatories in flight. I worked on a carrier's ramp for a few weeks over the summer and I can assure you, we unloaded EVERY plane. :p

    I hope that you aren't saying that he was buried alive. There isn't a much worse way to die than suffocation. :( :eek:

    I'd hate to be killed by anything related to a Windoze computer. Say, a giant robot is infected with the latest virus and steps on me...that would suck...
