Let's jump right in and get dark for a sec: You've probably played out a seemingly-unrealistic scenario at least once when thinking about your death, right?

Well the scenarios you come up with probably aren't all that out there, because people die in some WEIRD-ASS WAYS.

Maybe you know that in 1979, a man named John Bowen died at a New York football game when a 40-pound model plane shaped like a lawn mower cracked his skull.

Or you heard of George Herbert's death in 1923, which happened after he cut a mosquito bite while shaving and it became infected.

Perhaps you know about the Dancing Plague of 1518, where hundreds of people could not stop dancing for days, and many died from exhaustion or stroke.
