Monday Morning Memento Mori


G'day.

You have a 1 in 5 chance of dying from heart disease. A 1 in 7 chance of dying of cancer. A 1 in 24 chance of dying from a stroke. A 1 in 84 chance of dying in a car accident.

There is also a 1 in 119 chance that, before any of these things get you, you will commit suicide.

But let us be clear: whatever happens, you will certainly die.

Sure thing. They talk about growing old gracefully. Is it possible to die gracefully, or glamourously. To get to the nub of it - dying, is there anyway to tart it up? What are history's 'coolest' deaths. And can you start a cool death euthanasia service - 'Die Happy Inc'?
