Real News. Real Funny.
KrispyKritter: there were threads like this with the last big east coast storm. poor old folks forget things. but from what i've read it's not a horrible way to go. being duct taped to a old chair in winter late at night, tossed into the bed of a pick up truck, driven a few hundred miles in the rain and then tossed off a bridge into deep freezing water - that's a terrible way to go.
cryinoutloud: My grandparents almost died from carbon monoxide poisoning. They were both sleeping (in separate rooms) and for some reason my grandfather woke up and realized that something was wrong. He could barely crawl, but he had to drag my grandmother out in the snow--she was completely out of it-- and they both went to the hospital.I think their heater went out.
