Unlucky 13: Henry Smolinski.

Married a Ford Pinto to a Cessna Skymaster.  It plummeted to the ground and exploded, killing him instantly.  Accident investigation showed the welds attaching the wing to the Pinto were insufficient.

Pinto. I guess it was the lightest car he could find in 1973.

Too bad the inventor of the 20-page slideshow was not among them.

Bugged me so bad, I had to stop and comment.

Didn't Dean Kamen drive off a cliff on his Segway?

Is the inventor of the petard on the list?

We Ate the Necco Wafers: Didn't Dean Kamen drive off a cliff on his Segway?


No, though I like the way you think.

However, the guy who bought the company from Kamen did.

Who is this Miss Adventure? Is she hot?

Li Si is well out of place on that list, the Segway guy would have been much better.

In case you read the article, the Five Pains are; Nose, hand, foot, castration and finally being sawed in half.

Truly a farked up asshole.

Not listed, the guy who created the time machine that allowed you to jump back 1 second in time but not space.

You missed a guillotine, Chinese torture dude, a printing press person, a submariner, a steam powered bicycle and a jet train.  The rest are mostly flying mishaps.

I mean, novel for his time  but it doesn't even register on the torture scale anymoree.

They left out Jeffrey Hancock and his self masturbator. Ripped him from ass to appetite. Yes, he did cum.

Crud.

I meant to say "Perhaps not, but 'Accidental Guillotine' would be a good band name".

That bull. Sooooo coolly minimal, but absolutely clear.

My takeaway from the list ... if you invent a flying thing, let someone else try it out.
