Death! 41 Historic Demises – Summer Bummer Series pt. 3 – mental_floss on YT (Ep.15)

Some of the weirdest deaths in history are discussed in this episode of The List Show, alongside more quotidian circumstances that happened to lead to historic deaths.

The List Show is a weekly show hosted by John Green, where knowledge junkies get their fix of trivia-tastic information. This week, John takes a look at 41 people who have had some rather misfortunate deaths, such as falling down a chimney, being stabbed while using the toilet, and sky diving off the Eifel Tower with a broken parachute.
