Strange, when you come to think of it, that of all the countless folk who have lived before our time on this planet not one is known to in history or in legend as having died of laughter.

Sir Max Beerbohm, Laughter, c. 1950

WELCOME TO AIN'T NO WAY TO GO, TM a collection of news and magazine articles I've collected over the past two decades, all relating to the various ways people have departed this sphere of existence, some humorous, some horrific.

To those of the faint of heart, if you dare continue, I would suggest you start each chapter with the "News Nuggets." These stories tend to be more humorous, and thus may put you in the mood to read the feature-length articles.

As mentioned, this collection brings together some dozens upon dozens of articles, and as long as humans remain mortal, this collection will grow. And submissions are always welcome. For those insatiable news hounds among you, links to other sources of Web weirdness can be found in the bibliography

It should be noted that none of theses stories has been reprinted with permission.

Contact me at to send raves, rants, submissions, suggestions and questions.

Text size for PC users may be too large; try setting your browser's font display preferences to 10 point Times Roman for proportional width fonts and 9 point Arial for fixed width fonts. Mac users should get optimal results by setting their browser font display preferences to Times 12 and Geneva 10 (the default setting, I think).

Navigator users will notice "Back" and "Forward" navigation links at the top and bottom of article pages. Use these links to navigate the site instead of the browser window's "Back" and "Forward" buttons since the buttons do not function properly with frame-based sites. Users of Navigator 4.xx and Internet Explorer will not see these links and must use the window's navigation buttons.

General misbehavior on these pages (such as after a JavaScript error) can usually be corrected by simply reloading the home page (
