Big D

I do not fear Death. I play a pretty mean Battleship.

The lovely, talented, (and unsigned at this time) Lauren O'Connell performs an amazing version of the folk standard "O Death", playing all the instruments her own bad self.

You may also remember hearing Stanley Clarke sing this during the memorable "KKK meeting scene" in O Brother, Where Art Thou?

25 Most Unusual Deaths of 21st Century
Some of these were just horrific, like these two:

2004: Ronald McClagish, from England, died after being trapped inside a cupboard for a week. A wardrobe in the bedroom outside had fallen over, trapping him inside.

In an effort to free himself, McClagish accidentally wrenched a water pipe from the wall and the water gushing from the pipe eventually caused his death from bronchitis. His body was not discovered until two weeks later.

2009: Vladimir Likhonos, a Ukrainian student, died after accidentally dipping a piece of homemade chewing gum into explosives he was using on another project.

He mistook the jar of explosive for citric acid, which was also on his desk. The gum exploded, blowing off his jaw and most of the lower part of his face.

Bonus! Non-lethal palate cleanser: Boy gets butter knife stuck in head. Don't worry, he's fine.
