You Can't Be Too Careful : Cautionary Tales for the Impetuous, the Curious and the Blithely Oblivious
Consider the first one in the book, for instance: "A plumber died afte jumping naked from his girlfriend's third-floor apartment near Salonika, Greece, to escape from the enraged husband who caught them in bed." (Why is it always the plumber?) Or how about this one? "A man was electrocuted in his back garden while fitting a water pump in a fish pond. The shock killed Michael N. when he put his hand in the water to find out why the pump would not work." (Hmmm, I suppose he should have called that plumber.) One more and then you're on your own: "Murderer Michael G., who escaped the electric chair after an appeal, was electrocuted accidentally while sitting on a steel toilet in his cell in Columbia, South Carolina. He was trying to repair earphones connected to his television set when he bit into a live wire." You can't make this stuff up. And I'm gonna go hide under the bed.
