And resourcefulness New York driver chains neck to pole, hits gas pedal, gets decapitated | Reuters
Quote:
A 51-year-old man decapitated himself in New York's Bronx borough by chaining his neck to a pole, getting into his car and stomping on the gas, police said on Tuesday. The gory scene in the Hunts Point neighborhood of the Bronx, where the man's head and body lay on the street after the incident on Monday, was under investigation as an apparent suicide.

If he had a 240d he'd still be alive.

He wouldn't have been thrown from the car if he had only worn his seatbelt.

Having driven a Honda Pilot for about 2 years, I can attest that decapitation would have been the most entertaining part of the ownership experience.

This one gets an F for fail

Ohio man who set himself on fire suspected in homicide: police | Reuters

wow

Quote:
Hugo Ramos, 28, walked into traffic about 35 miles west of Cleveland on Monday and was struck by the truck, then retrieved what police believed was a container of gasoline, drank some of it, poured the rest on his body and set himself on fire.

Ramos, who was conscious despite being struck and setting himself on fire, told state troopers there was a body at a house in Cleveland.
How embarrassing

Perhaps most famously was the study conducted by a Dr. Beaurieux in 1905 of the head of executed criminal Henri Languille. Over the course of 25 to 30 seconds of observation, the physician recorded managing to get Languille to open his eyes and "undeniably" focus them on the doctor's twice by calling the executed man's name [source: Bellows].
