  • Sky scaper under construction. Several floors up, windows not in yet. Builder needs the toilet. Sees a toilet, but unbeknownst to him, its not plumbed. Its just sitting on a low trolley with wheels. Anyway he sits, and a gust of wind comes. The trolley moves fast, stright out the empty window space, and death follows.
  • A woman dying of a brain aneurysm at her husband's funeral.
  • Twins out drinking one night with a car load of friends. One was goofing off and his glasses flew out the window. So, they stopped and backed the car up onto the shoulder and saw that the glasses were in the middle of the interstate. Brilliant thinking here. . .the one twin gets out of the car (drunk) and heads for his glasses. The other sees a semi coming and (also drunk) jumps out of the car to warn his brother. He didn't realize how close he was to the oncoming semi and he gets hit by it. The impact of his body being thrown hits the other twin and kills him. No joke. This happened close to where I lived when I was in junior high. Very bizarre. I tried Googling the names and incident and couldn't find anything, so you'll have to take my word on this one.
  • On those Darwin's Award things, they showed this couple out driving into the country, and they had a dynamite stick. They thought it would be fun to light it and throw it out od the car window. So they light it up and throw it out the window as planned...only, they forgot to open any window in the car. )_o
