A fellow tried to impress his friends by fitting a billiard ball in his mouth - he died.
A young woman laced her corset too tightly - she died.
A woman fell down the stairs, which caused one of her hairpins to penetrate her skull - she died.
And, of course, many people had horrible encounters with mill and farm machinery. Predictably, they died.

Aw look, another cute flash game. Help the sweet lil' doe-eyed bunnies, monkeys, and their friends get to the promised land after a big bad cigar-chomping human came and chopped down their forest. It's so sweet. Until you hit the shift button and Thumper slowly pulls out a knife and takes one for the team
. Play SeppuKuties
(flash). [more inside]

My Wife, The Coffee Table
Geocities Original (with awful Google Adsense ads covering the text on the right).
While I feel bad for the guy losing his wife at such a young age, I'm not sure that having her interred for all eternity in the living room isn't just a little damned creepy. Especially if he started dating again.
"Some of his friends and relatives, filled with fear, stop visiting Jeff. His true friends respected his decision and continue visiting him." No mention of whether his true family respects his decision and visits him still.
But if you think this is how you'd like to spend eternity or how you'd like your loved on to spend eternity then go hit up CasketFurniture
(who now have a cool casket shaped pool table
too), previously discussed in the Blue 1st here
and again here

We had a plane crash today. A small two-engine plane crashed into a pond killing three people inside. The pilot's face was pretty much nonexistant, which is mostly due to the trauma. However, the investigators did have to fight the turtles in order to collect the body. They ate the eyes and were in the process of "giving kisses" to what was left of the face.
