Francis Bacon:

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.
