My Series of Possible Demises

A few years ago I got bored. When this happens, I usually end up picking up a new hobby. At the time I was sitting aboard ship in some port in Japan and had an old photo editing program on my laptop and started goofing around.



Within a few minutes I'd invented a handful of creative ways for me to shuffle off my mortal coil. After that, I'd come up with one or two new ones every week or two. Sitting here late at night (which is actually early in the morning in this time zone) I've realized that I never got around to transferring any of these in from my old blog.

  3. Thought the Pen and Sword fight was quite witty. Showing your true geek nature, but very funny.

  4. Showed these to my office coworkers and some of them were laughing so hard I was afraid I'd have to clean up the cubicle carpeting.
