Poison Pill: Bando Mitsugorio was one of Japan's most revered Kabuki actors from the 1930s until his death in January 1975. However, for all his fame during his life, Bando is probably best-known for his legendary death. At age 68, he visited a Kyoto restaurant with friends and ordered four livers of the fugu fish, which is widely-known to be extremely toxic. Claiming that he could survive their poisons, he ate the livers and, after seven hours, died of paralysis and convulsions.
Sting Judy: In the Florida Keys, giant eagle stingray flew 6 ft. out of the water and landed on the face of a female sailor, killing her instantly. However, it was not the poisonous sting that took her life, but in fact the blunt force trauma of the eagly ray's hit.
Over a Barrel: In 1920, 58 yr old part time daredevil, Charles Stephens, constructed what he believed was a foolproof vessel to carry him over Niagara Falls. He accounted for buoyancy, oxygen and impact, and made it safely over the falls. However, Stephens was remiss in devising his exit strategy and drowned inside the barrel.

[Discovery Channel] Extrañas Formas de Morir 5 - Contra el Reloj
Tennessee Time Bomb: In 1905, Jack Daniels, the founder of a Tennessee whiskey distillery, was trying desperately to remember the combination to his office safe. Daniels became increasingly frustrated over the morning and eventually kicked the iron safe. This led to an injured left toe, causing an infection, which in turn resulted in gangrene and then six years later perotinitis, (blood poisoning) which he eventually died from. On 10 October 1911 this incident was a subject of a marketing poster with the line "Moral: Never go to work early."
50 Hours To Die: In 2005, Lee Seung Seop, a 28 year old South Korean, achieved global notoriety when he visited a nearby internet cafe and proceeded to play StarCraft for almost fifty consecutive hours. Ultimately, from both exhaustion and dehydration he induced heart failure and went into cardiac arrest. He died shortly thereafter at a local hospital. A friend commented: "He was a game addict. We all knew about it. He couldn't stop himself."
Frozen Fall from Jet: In 1993 two men in red coats dropped from the undercarriage of an Air France Boeing 777 as the plane approached Shanghai airport after a flight from Paris. One of the men smashed through the roof of a house, leaving a large gash in the ceiling. The two, described as Caucasians in their 30s, had apparently suffered from frostbite, leading investigators to the conclusion that they were airplane stowaways.

Hoarding To Death: Homer Lusk Collyer and Langley Collyer were two American brothers who had became famous because of their compulsive hoarding.

  2. Hola, buscando en Google algo que me pueda llevar a descubrir lo que realmente tengo en mi poder en este momento, vi esta página. La verdad es que buscando en el desvan de una vieja casa del 1800, encontré una caja extraña, llena de paja que protegía otra caja mas pequeña de cartón, dentro de la cual encontré un elemento aún mas extraño, ya que se trata de un envase de vidrio, como una botella sin gollete, conteniendo un liquido transparente y al interior de ésta otro envase parecido a una pipeta, que también tiene un liquido transparente. Presumo que se trata de algún tipo de artefacto explosivo, dispuesto para que que se quiebre y ambos liquidos de junten provocando algún tipo de reacción química, que en ningún caso creo que sea inocuo o de poco cuidado, ya que de otra forma no se explica el envase que lo protegía. Si alguien sabe algo acerca de esto les agradecería informarlo, ya que no no quiero que esta sea una de las formas mas extrañas de morir
