A man who shoveled snow for an hour to clear a space
for his car during a blizzard in Chicago returned
with his vehicle to find a woman had taken the space.
Understandably, he shot her dead.
One of the most influential minds of the late 16th century. A statesman, a
philosopher, a writer, and a scientist, he was even rumored to have
written some of Shakespeare's plays.
How he died: Stuffing snow into a chicken
One afternoon in 1625, Bacon was watching a snowstorm and was struck by
the wondrous notion that maybe snow could be used to preserve meat in the
same way that salt was used. Determined to find out, he purchased a
chicken from a nearby village, killed it, and then, standing outside in
the snow, attempted to stuff the chicken full of snow to freeze it. The
chicken never froze, but Bacon did.
Young Kristin, the editor of our trivia publication, was having
trouble with her computer. So she called Wes, the computer guy,
over to her desk.
Wes clicked a couple buttons and solved the problem. As he was
walking away Kristin called after him, "So, what was wrong?"
And he replied, "It was an ID ten T error."
A puzzled expression ran riot over Kristin's face. "An ID ten T
error?" What's that in case I need to fix it again?"
He gave her a grin. "Haven't you ever seen an ID ten T error before?"
"Write it down," he said, "and I think you'll figure it out."
So she pulled out a piece of paper and marked down, I-D-one-zero-T,
and stared at it for a second while Wes beat a hasty retreat.
Needless to say he gave Kristin's desk a wide berth the rest of the day.
