This is freaky, these two news stories showed up together on CNN.com just now. They both seem like something you'd see on Six Feet Under or Dead Like Me. First, a tourist in Las Vegas was walking barefoot (Barefoot? On the Strip? Eww!) when she got electrocuted by a traffic signal wiring box. Next, a surgical resident is decapitated by a malfunctioning elevator. I tell you, it's not even safe to leave the house anymore. Particularly gruesome is the fact that there was a woman stuck inside the elevator with the severed head for 20 minutes. That's gonna leave a mark... Update: Alert reader Rowena Tan told me about this story, from yesterday. A long-haired carny (Gee, what are the chances of that? He should have stuck with a mullet) got his hair caught in a passing roller coaster car, and wound up dead. That gives us a trifecta of weird deaths in 24 hours. Truth really is stranger than fiction.
