Professional-Strength Time Waster

I've been doing some cleaning around the house today, and I left the TV on for some noise. Turns out Spike TV is running a marathon of one of the most bizarre programs I've ever seen: 1000 Ways to Die. It's a series of mini-clips of really unusual deaths... swallowing an M-80 with a lit fuse, dumping a smoke into a toilet filled with gasoline.. all those good things.

I haven't gotten much done the last couple of hours...


  1. So, uhm, did you encounter any of these yourself during your time in emergency services? Just wonderin'!

  2. No, these were truly the "Fox TV" methods of chlorinating the gene pool... lots of different ways of bisecting a body, at least a dozen different impalements, various ways of blowing oneself up, all that neat stuff.

    I usually just dealt with traffic crashes and ODs.

    One thing I found interesting was how many took place in areas like Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Kansas, etc.
