Strange ways to die

Among history’s strangest deaths was Hans Steininger, who was famous for having the world’s longest beard. He trod on it, fell, and broke his neck! Then there was King Frederick of Sweden who died after eating fourteen servings of his favourite dessert. Bobby Leach was another. He was the second person to go over Niagara Falls in a barrel, but died after slipping on an orange peel in New Zealand. Somewhat similar was whiskey maker Jack Daniel, who couldn’t get his safe open, gave it a kick and injured his toe, which then got infected and killed him. Well we may never make the list, but as the Bible says: it is appointed unto us once to die, and then the judgement. So, as Ghandi said: ‘Learn as if you were to live forever, but live as if you were to die tomorrow.’
