What’s more disturbing is the fact that he was later acquitted of the crime after it was found out that the New York State Police coerced a confession out of him as he was illiterate.

Don’t be afraid to add to this list


Sgt. Ignacio “McNugget” Roja, pilot of the experimental Poultry Wing project had a record 32 successful test flights before fatally crashing on the moon. This image was drawn the morning of his last flight.

Shonda Rhimes logic:
It is completely unrealistic for a couple to actually be happy and for a marriage to actually last.

It is totally and completely realistic for a bombing, drowning, hospital shooting, two car crashes (one fatal), getting hit by a bus, stage 4 cancer, babies with OI and no brain, insane child birthing circumstances, electrocution, icicle stabbing, brutal beating, and not one But TWO plane crashes (or near plane crash…won’t know until Thursday) to happen to the same group of about 15ish people and for literally every single marriage they enter to result in divorce and/or premature death.

The Killer B’s • Group B Rally

Footage of Walter Röhrl in his Audi Quattro S1 during the Group B Era, which many people see as the golden age of rallying. It started in 1982, but was disestablished just 4 years later after a series of fatalities, including a crash in 1986, where 3 spectators were killed and 33 injured.

Every year Patrick Engleman plays a little trick on his students. The high school chemistry teacher introduces his ninth-graders in suburban Philadelphia to an insidious substance called dihydrogen monoxide. It’s “involved in 80 percent of fatal car crashes. It’s in every single cancer cell. This stuff, it’ll burn you,” he tells them.

But dihydrogen monoxide is water. He says several of his honors classes decided to ban it based just on what he told them.

The lesson here isn’t that teenagers are gullible. It’s that you can’t trust everything you hear. In a time when access to information is easier than ever, Engleman says that his current students have much more to sift through than his past students. These days kids come in with all sorts of questions about things they’ve read online or heard elsewhere.

The Ongoing Battle Between Science Teachers And Fake News

24 hours of anarchy in Charlottesville, through the eyes of 1 protester
A UVA student describes facing Nazi hordes and a fatal terror attack just feet away that could have struck his wife.
By Jeff Stein

Ross Mittiga is a Ph.D. student at the University of Virginia who researches the politics and ethics of climate change.

On Saturday, he watched as a car slammed into and killed a protester a few yards away from him in what appears to have been an act of white supremacist terrorism.

Mittiga’s wife was trying to take a photo of him when it happened.

“What happened this afternoon was an incredible tragedy that happened right in front of my eyes. I still can’t believe what I saw,” said Mittiga, who joined the protests against white supremacist groups in Charlottesville, Virginia, as a member of Charlottesville’s Democratic Socialists of America. “It was an act of domestic terrorism.”

On Friday night, hundreds of neo-Nazis amassed outside a church in Charlottesville carrying torches and, later, threatened and threw tear gas at student protesters protecting a campus monument of Thomas Jefferson. By Saturday, the neo-Nazis clashed and brawled with counter-protesters in feuds throughout Charlottesville’s typically quaint and quiet streets. (Vox’s Dara Lind and Libby Nelson have a broad overview of events here.)

Mittiga witnessed much of the action firsthand — from the neo-Nazis assembled outside the church, to scores of “Nazis dressed like Italian fascists” fighting with protesters, to the fatal crash itself. Below is a lightly edited transcript of his account of the last 24 hours.

A dramatic confrontation the night before

Since the KKK rally in June, a lot of people here have been busy organizing. Everybody knew August 12 was coming and that the white supremacists were going to have a rally much bigger than the July one. Our town racist, [white supremacist organizer] Jason Kessler, has been organizing this and then he got help from Richard Spencer; it’s been obvious that it was going to be huge. They’re both UVA grads, by the way.

So we knew this was happening. Yesterday, there was a big sermon at St. Paul’s church in preparation. I got there 20 minutes early and it was already standing room only, and there were a number of speakers from different faith groups, and the keynote speakers were Rev. Traci Blackmon and Cornel West. Her sermon focused on the David versus Goliath story, and she stressed that David takes the head off of Goliath — making the point we can’t settle for piecemeal success; we have to realize white supremacy isn’t isolated but is embedded in a larger ideology of imperialism and oppression. The overwhelming thrust of everything was that it was time for solidarity among the left.

Around 9:15pm, the church gathering started to break up. But then hundreds of white supremacists marched right outside the church. Everybody in the church was asked to remain inside. The Nazis came and made people essentially hostages in the church until they eventually marched away.

What they then did was go down UVA’s main lawn toward the Thomas Jefferson statute; student protesters headed them off, and they surrounded Thomas Jefferson’s statute to prevent the neo-Nazis from reaching it. The students wanted to say, “This is our space.” There are very moving pictures of these students being surrounded by neo-Nazis, and deeply unsettling video of them being physically attacked.

It sickens me they were attacked on their campus.

Scary Fact #59: Ghostly Crash.

On December 11, 2002, two motorists called police to report seeing a car veering off the road and crashing on the A3 near Burpham, Surrey. When the Police arrived at the scene to search for the wreckage they were unable to find any trace of a crash.

That was until an officer stumbled upon a maroon Vauxhall Astra nose down in a ditch, covered in undergrowth. There was one alarmingly irregular detail though, the car had not crashed recently. In fact it had laid undiscovered for five months, confirmed by the discovery of the decomposed body of the vehicles driver. It was suggested in the national press that the sighting of the car leaving the road just the night before could only have been a ghostly replay of the fatal crash earlier in the year.

anonymous asked:

rohans a bad person, theres no denying that. but that doesnt mean you cant acknowledge it and still like his character!! hes got his goodboy moments sometimes too

You Absolute Fool. You Come Into My House, Insult My Fav, Insist I Don’t Know How To Read Because Rohan Kishibe Is “A Bad Person, There’s No Denying That”? 

Please. “Rohan is a bad person” is shit-tier meta. 

You have awakened the beast. 


1. Rohan Kishibe’s only actual “bad thing he’s done” was try and kill Koichi, Josuke, and Okuyasu in his introductory chapter. Understandably, that’s not super great! But when you read further and learn about his character, you can kind of understand what was going through his head when he did that. Rohan has an incredible hyperfocusing issue. It can make him work on his comics for days without rest, it can make him search for a serial killer constantly without pause, it can make him aloof and blindsides him from other actual human beings. This is why he almost killed them in his first chapter – upon meeting another stand user for the first time ever (he only got his stand three months prior, according to DIU canon – and he’d never met anyone like him), he went super fucking overboard. After he gets forcefully removed from that hyperfocus, he never tries to attack them ever again. He doesn’t try and steal Koichi’s pages. In fact, after that first chapter, he doesn’t steal anyone’s pages. 

2. Rohan does not like Josuke in Diamond is Unbreakable canon. In fact, neither of them like each other. Rohan is a dick to Josuke, Josuke is a dick to Rohan. Rohan generally still sees himself as better than everyone else, but on the outside he is still cordial and polite – even respectful – to other people. Just not Josuke. Everyone in the fandom, however, seems to fucking think otherwise. Rohan only really treats Josuke like garbage, and to be honest, can you blame him? Josuke put him in the hospital for a month (it was a deserved punishment, but still) and burned his house down while trying to steal money from him. Rohan literally does not have any reason to be nice to Josuke. He is, however, respectful of Joseph, and the other members of Josuke’s family. He is not a dick to every person he meets. He may have an internal monologue of “I am better than everyone else,” but he doesn’t purposefully flaunt it in front of other people.

3. Does everyone just collectively forget that almost every jobro starts off trying to attack the protagonist? Speedwagon, Kakyoin and Polnareff, Okuyasu, Rohan, Yukako, Yuuya, almost every fucking character in part 4 honestly– like, “Uwaah!! Rohan attacked the main characters so he’s evil!!” is just grasping at low-hanging fruit. Try harder.

4. Rohan ends up caring about the Duwang Gang. He ends up as part of the Duwang Gang. I’m not making this shit up. Do you want proof? In Thus Spoke Kishibe Rohan and Rohan at the Louvre, there are instances where Rohan is eating or having tea with Josuke, Okuyasu, and Koichi. In the scene where they’re having tea, it’s at Rohan’s house – meaning that they’ve all become close enough that Rohan is fine with them there. He even ditches them to go to Paris basically halfway through a conversation (another example of that hyperfocusing I mentioned earlier), which means he trusts them enough to just… be alone in his house without him. Do you think Okuyasu, Koichi and Josuke would be close friends with a bad person? Do we all remember when they kinkshamed a man to death? 


(CONTEXT: He and the man he’s talking about were trying to save the lives of a huge crowd of people at a train station. Everyone else there was being controlled by these special bugs that live in cellphones. The other man did not survive, but he made sure that no one else was hurt that day. Rohan expressed genuine grief at not being able to help him.


(CONTEXT: The woman he’s carrying got a little too greedy when trying to bargain with forces she didn’t understand. Her fiancé and her mother reaped the consequences by getting in a fatal car crash. She fainted. The bird, which Rohan had saved earlier, was also a victim of those consequences. Rohan singlehandedly saved the woman, the woman’s family, and the bird.)


Hmm, wait, what’s that there? Let me get a close up:



“Sure, I’ll go illegal poaching with you because it sounds fun.” 

-That night- 


He then proceeds to save Tonio’s life, at great risk to his own.

I’m sure I could fine even more examples of Rohan being a genuinely good person, with more “goodboy” moments than bad, but I have stuff to do so I’ll stop here.


Haunted Places in Romania (according to Wikipedia)

Argeș County

Trivale Forest in Pitești - There is a legend about a maiden, daughter of a rich landowner, who loved a poor servant of her father. Her father found an old rich man for her to marry, but during the wedding day, she ran with the servant in the forest. Her father found them and killed her lover and then decapitated her. It is generally accepted that the two scary things about the forest are: the decapitated ghost of the bride and the people going into the forest to do satanic rituals.

Bacău County

Zarifopol Mansion in Filipești – Called by locals “the House of Evil”, the mansion is the site of several reports of paranormal activities: indistinct voices, bizarre sounds, steps, cold currents that “walk” through walls.


Bazilescu Park – Also known as Nicolae Bălcescu Park, Bazilescu Park is located in Bucureștii Noi neighborhood. Within the park is the Summer Theatre, built in 1953. During the night, in the area can be heard strident sounds and the cough of a man (whereof it is said that belongs to Bazilescu), coming from beyond the columns of the derelict theatre.

Central Girls School – Inside this historical building and its courtyard have been reports of strange sounds, cold breeze and fetid odors, but were also seen levitating objects, doors and windows that open and close without any human intervention.

Chiajna Monastery – This ruined monastery has its root somewhere in the 18th century, during the rule of Alexandru Ipsilanti. It was a big monastery, with thick walls, reason for that the Turks “confused” it and assaulted it. Moreover, some historical sources show that between its walls died of plague the Metropolitan of Wallachia, Cozma. The land and the building have never got to be sanctified. For these reasons it was abandoned, and the monastery’s bell was thrown in the Dâmbovița River, people blaming it cursed and leaving it in ruins.According to locals, the bell can still be heard ringing on full moon nights, many audio records proving this fact. Moreover, it is said that on one of the walls near the entrance can be glimpsed the face of a beautiful lady, which is said to be Ancuța, the daughter of Mrs. Chiajna, who would have been killed on the orders of her mother after she ran with her beloved without her mother’s approval. On top of that, in the area would have been several murders and numerous mysterious disappearances.

Cișmigiu Hotel – The building was closed in 1970 and reopened in 1990, when it was converted into hostel for students of the Faculty of Theatre and Film. Legend says that in a weekend, when all the students were away on vacation, a young woman from Moldova was raped and then thrown into the elevator shaft. She died there, after three hours she desperately cried for help, with no one to hear her. Many say that her screams can still be heard.

Hospital of the Posts – Previously housed in the building behind the Stavropoleos Church, Hospital of the Posts was a site of organ trafficking. It is said that, especially in long winter nights, can be heard on adjacent streets groans and cries of those who died in hospital beds.

“House of the Devil” on General Praporgescu Street – The house, which now looks degraded, is distinguished by the ivy that covers it entirely. It is the site of two tragic events: in the interwar period, a man would have killed here two women, and within a few years, a young woman would have committed suicide.Some say that on full moon nights on one of the walls of the house can be seen the number 666, symbol of the devil, and here would live a demonic entity full of hate and anger, that can be felt from afar.

Orphanage on the French Street – Legend says the house, located at number 13, is haunted by no less than 203 children’s spirits. In this orphanage were brought homeless children, even by its owner – Stavrache Hagi-Orman. He kept the kids in unimaginable conditions, without water and without food. After dozens of children died of starvation, the orphanage was closed. Locals reported voices of children crying “Water, we want water!”.

Vernescu House on the Victory Avenue – It is named by locals “Cellar of the Devil” (Romanian: Hruba lui Scaraoțchi). Here still operate a casino. It is said that in the past century, several players committed suicide inside the house after they lost the entire fortunes at roulette. Reports indicate three ghosts that haunt the house. They shake the furniture, cause air currents and sometimes even appear on the hallways of the building. Passers also reported strong odor of sulfur in the building’s yard.

Witches’ Pond – According to the legend, the pond located in Boldu-Crețeasca Forest, having a diameter of only 5 m, is the place where Vlad the Impaler was beheaded. It is said that after the 1977 earthquake many trucks unloaded debris in the pond, with the aim of stoppering it. Within weeks, the debris disappeared in its waters, although the pond has a depth of only one meter and a half. Locals say that many times when pregnant women didn’t want the child went to the pond, bathed and ridded the pregnancy. Even the animals would be scared of this place: there would be no frog or any being that lives in the pond, and the animals don’t drink water from there. The pond is famous for the gipsy witches that gather each year to Sânziene, St. George and St. Andrew to practice their magic rituals. Near this eye of water have been observed over time strange phenomena, like globular lightnings or storms started suddenly. The pond never change, doesn’t dry, doesn’t expand, whether it rains or is drought. In a video from mid-90s is shown a strange phenomenon: in midsummer, on an area of some square meters it snowed, immediately after a woman from the stunt team was terribly amused while trying to put a helmet on the head of a mannequin that portrayed Vlad the Impaler.

Călărași County

Călugăreasca Forest – It is a forest of mulberry trees, where it is said that the wind never blows. Here, people say that existed a monastery of monks, but they were killed by the Turks, and the place was made one with the earth by the pagans. The last monk killed by the Turkish army threw a curse upon them. So that, after death, the spirits of those who have defiled hands with the blood of the monks returned in thickets of Călugăreasca, from where they never found the way out.At the edge of the forest are also a lot of crosses, which legend says that stand sentry as the pagans’ spirits can not escape. People are reluctant to seek the thickets of Călugăreasca due to the curses, and the only safe place in the woods was the large white cross that reminds about the monastery and that protects those who pray next to it when the night catches them in the grove.

Cluj County

Bánffy Castle in Bonțida – Dubbed “the Versailles of Transylvania”, the castle is reportedly haunted by the ghost of a young servant who paid with his life because he revealed that his mistress deceived her husband. Another variant is that the place is haunted by the ghosts of those who died in Bánffy during the Second World War, when the castle was converted by Germans into a military hospital. Legend says that there were often seen sinister shadows that seemed to be of some soldiers, while through walls were heard strange noises, groans, sounds of footsteps or indistinct voices.

Hoia Forest – The forest near Cluj-Napoca has long been known for the mysterious events that take place here and was even cataloged as a gateway to another dimension. Dubbed “the Bermuda Triangle of Transylvania”, the forest is one of the most active areas of the world in terms of paranormal phenomena. Legends would have occurred, it seems, after a shepherd disappeared into the forest along with his 200 sheep and no one managed to find neither he nor any part of the flock. It was only the first mysterious disappearance that took place in the forest. People who accidentally pass right through active areas report skin burns, redness, irritations, headaches, amplified sensation of thirst, anxiety, sensation of fainting. Hoia Forest became famous in the world after on 18 August 1968, military technician Emil Barnea photographed in the Round Glade (Romanian: Poiana Rotundă) an UFO, the photos being among the few of this kind genuine, according to experts. Numerous accounts of villagers reported unexplained physical sensations, observations of various shapes and colors lights, strange shadows, voices and human faces. The local vegetation is often bizarre. The trees have strange shapes, even human faces can be depicted from their trunks. In 2000, Alexandru Pătruț, President of the Romanian Society of Parapsychology, caught a strange phenomenon in the forest, around the Easter: a kind of sap flowed profusely from the top of the trees. Next day, everything was dry. He also reported strange sounds of ambulance sirens, tire exploding and even cuckoo clock. The forest was included in top 15 most haunted places in the world by the American magazine Travel+Leisure.

Constanța County

Tomis Nord neighbourhood from Constanța Supposedly, the neighbourhood is haunted by a woman who was decapitated by her husband who believed that he was cheated on.

Dâmbovița County

Bride’s Trinity on DN7 – On national road DN7, near the town of Găești, there is a monument called Bride’s Trinity or Margareta’s Trinity. Here it is said that on 24 September 1936, Margareta Ștefănescu died in a car accident, even on her wedding day, and since then the place has become cursed.  In the area have occurred a lot of fatal crashes, even if the road is straight and with maximum visibility. The road was “baptized” by locals “the Road of Crosses”. In the road tragedies are involved especially men. For example, only in 2008–09 in that place 12 young men died, mostly unmarried. Likewise, there were several reports of a silhouette of a woman dressed in white near the trinity.

Dolj County

Radovan Forest – Dozens of people, especially men, have drowned over time in Lake Fântânele of Radovan. Locals put numerous tragedies on account of the curse of a bride, who legend says that in the 1940s hanged herself in the forest surrounding the lake. Her story has two versions: one, according to that a young Moldovan woman arrived in Oltenia with her family, would have committed suicide after her husband was beaten to death on the night of the wedding; the second version says that she has committed suicide after, even before the wedding, would have been raped by a kulak that employed her. Locals say the bride haunts the road near the forest, and the passers are advised to move quickly and try to simply overlook any sound or appearance, otherwise the bride will lead them in the heart of the forest, from where they won’t ever return.

Bulzești commune Villagers talk about the “creatures by the hill”. A long time ago, the village was moved because of the strigoi. According to a villager:“The evil spirits haunt us at both day and night. Nobody dares to go up the hill because of the vampires. A neighbour has paralyzed many years ago when he bumped into one of the evil spirits. He couldn’t find his peace and does bad things to all those around him” The Romanian poet Marin Sorescu, born in the commune, mentioned the legend in his poem “Dumneata”: One night, here, by the fountains,| Where homes are rare, due to the ghosts |Who they say have showed around |And the people were strained to put houses there, for the ghosts to have their place.(…)

Iași County

House of Gavril Buzatu on Manta Roșie – In this house from Iași lived Gavril Buzatu, “the last executioner of Moldova”. The house was the site of several killings and atrocities. It is reportedly haunted by strigoi about people think would be the thieves beheaded by Gavril Buzatu. During the night can be heard howls of beast or human, followed by roars of laughter. Here can be seen strange lights that “run” through the mansion, especially during the winter. A former tenant reported a black creature running through the nearby forest. Likewise, were seen flames lighting up suddenly in the abandoned salons.

Lungani Hill – It is said that the hill that separates the villages of Goești and Brăești is haunted by thousands of ghosts of soldiers from the World War I. Locals reported white lights, silhouettes of soldiers descending from the cemetery into the valley, at night, late after 12 o'clock. On the other side of the hill, in the commune of Lungani, peasants saw headless people who went on the road or even the devil in the body of child or cat.

Maramureș County

E58 near Cicârlău – The area is known by drivers as one where many accidents happen. The accidents are attributed to a ghost which is said that comes out from the crops and scares the drivers. In the 1930s, a young woman named Pălăguța, envied by women for her beauty, was accused of witchcraft and beaten to death. Old people speak about a kind of animal with very long legs which haunted the village in Tuesday nights. It is said that appeared after midnight and went to houses where women violated the church rule. Women would have been hit in the temple and died or remained paralyzed.

Prahova County

Iulia Hasdeu Castle in Câmpina – Bizarre by its architecture, Iulia Hasdeu Castle was built by writer Bogdan Petriceicu Hasdeu in the memory of Iulia Hasdeu, his daughter, who died at age 19. It is said that the castle was built in accordance with the indications received during some seances, from his dead daughter. Locals say that during the night, Iulia Hasdeu can be heard playing the piano, in father’s applause.

I just want to point out how illogical it is for people to get annoyed that everyone hasn’t evacuated Florida due to the hurricane.

My brother and his wife live in a mandatory evacuation zone but they can’t. They roads are at dead stops; there are fatal crashes all along the highways, they will get trapped in their car in the middle of the highway. Also, his wife is pregnant and his boss will FIRE him if he doesn’t go to work.

My brothers best friend can’t evacuate because his girlfriend is 9 months pregnant, due yesterday. She can’t get stuck in traffic and risk giving birth in her car, with no one to help but her boyfriend and their two year old.

Stop saying “why is everyone so stupid? They should’ve just left. They deserve what they get.”

A Basic Overview of the Many Different Types of Death

When talking about death forensically, or medically, there are many different categories of death, and types of deaths to consider. Here, I will walk you through some of the basics.

Basic definitions

Thanatology: is the scientific study of death. It investigates the mechanisms and forensic aspects of death, such as bodily changes that accompany death and the post-mortem period, as well as wider social aspects related to death. the types of deaths investigated in a forensic context include:

  • Violent deaths (accidents, homicides, suicides)
  • Suspicious deaths
  • Sudden and unexpected deaths
  • Deaths without a physician in attendance 
  • Deaths in an institution (such as a prison)

Death: Cessation of life. In lower multicellular organisms, death is a gradual process at the cellular level, because tissues vary in their ability to withstand deprivation of oxygen. In higher organisms, death is a cessation of integrated tissues and organ functions. In humans, death is manifested by the loss of heart beat, the cessation of breathing, and cerebral death.

Cerebral Death: Permanent loss of cerebral and brainstem function, manifested by the absence of responsiveness to external stimuli, absence of cephalic reflexes (reflexes associated with the cranial nerves) and apnea (absence of breathing). 

Delayed Deaths: Long delay between injury and death, as long as the death was a result of the injuries. An example of this would be a person being shot, living through the experience, but dying years later from health complications arising from being shot. In such as case as someone being shot, the death may be ruled a homicide, although the death happened years after the initial gunshot, and legal ramifications may be dealt out.

Cause, Mechanism, and Manner of Death

Cause of death: Any injury or disease that produces a physiological derangement in the body that results in the death if the individual.

Mechanism of Death: The physiological derangement produced by the cause of death that results in death.

Manner of Death: Explains how the cause of death came about. They can generally be categorized as:

  • Natural
  • Homicide
  • Suicide
  • Undetermined

So basically, the cause of death is the initial injury or disease that was inflicted upon a person. The mechanism of death is the body’s resulting reaction to the disease or injury; a biochemical or physiological abnormality is produced. The manner of death is simply used by medical examiners in order to categorize cause and mechanism of death. For example, a person can be shot (the cause of death, the initial injury), and die of a massive hemorrhage (the mechanism of death, the physiological abnormality), and the death is ruled a homicide (the manner of death). 

Forensic pathologists evaluate the evidence of a case, as well as the results of the autopsy (if one is performed) in order to determine the manner of death. It is the job of the forensic pathologist to compare the accounts of what happened to the victim, and the forensic evidence and determine if those two things match up or not. For example, a person is found dead due to a fatal gunshot wound. A witness says that the person committed suicide, but the forensic evidence reveals a gunshot wound to the back of the head, inflicted from a distance. The forensic evidence and the account of what happened do not match in this case, which might lead the forensic investigator to determine the manner of death to be homicide instead of suicide.

Subcategories Within Natural Death: Sudden and Unexpected Deaths

Sudden deaths and unexpected deaths are the two most common types of natural deaths. Sudden deaths can be instantaneous, sudden but not instantaneous, or a case where the person was found dead, and it is unclear if it was instantaneous or not.

Sudden, Instantaneous Death

A sudden, instantaneous death can occur in many different forms, but the most common one is someone walking along, and suddenly they collapse, and they are dead upon hitting the ground. The most common cause of this type of death is ventricular arrhythmia due to coronary artery disease. A person who died a sudden, instantaneous death will often show impact abrasions on the bony ridges of their body and face (check bone, forehead, chin, elbows, knees, etc.) The impact abrasions are caused by the individual’s inability to brace their fall; the person is usually dead before they hit the ground, therefore they cannot brace their fall. Impact abrasions are a good way to distinguish an instantaneous death from a sudden, but not instantaneous death.

Sudden, But Not Instantaneous Death

The sudden, but not instantaneous death is simply slower than instantaneous death. The person usually has time to complain of chest pain, difficultly breathing, weakness, sweating, or nausea (or any other symptoms) before they collapse and die. Depending on how long it takes the person to die, the death may not be considered sudden. Most medical examiners consider a death within a hour of the onset of symptoms a sudden death. Usually people who die sudden, but not instantaneous deaths die on the way to the hospital, or in their homes. In their homes, the individuals are usually found in their bed, or in some type of intentional position, as opposed to instantaneous deaths, where the individuals are usually found sprawled on the floor, or in a position indicative of a fall. Individuals who die sudden, but not instantaneous deaths usually do not have impact abrasions, but in some cases, they may.

Unexpected Deaths

There are two types of unexpected deaths, really. There are unexpected deaths that come about because of a car crash, or train derailment, building collapse, a fatal fall, etc. These are unexpected deaths, but the manner of death is usually classified as accidental. In this section, we will talk about unexpected natural deaths. Unexpected natural deaths are usually individuals who are found dead (of some natural cause) and it cannot be determined whether the death was instantaneous or not. The classification of unexpected death is mainly used when the medical examiner cannot determine the type of sudden death that occurred.

Friends Forever

Jenna was the biggest bitch that had ever attended North Hill high school. She had been ever since she had hit puberty before the rest of the girls. Her body had blossomed and the boys noticed.

Over the years she learned to hone her attractiveness and use it like a weapon. She had let the attention go to her head and corrupt her from a once shy innocent girl to the biggest slut in the school. Now in her senior year Jenna ruled the place. As head cheerleader she was the envy of every girl and the object of desire of every guy. She seemed to have a new boyfriend every month.

Jenna stalked the halls daily with her gang of bitches. Her beautiful blonde hair flowed over her enormous cleavage. Her bright blue uncaring eyes felt like piercing daggers to anyone who looked at them. She seemed to detest everyone but none more than poor Ana.

They had been friends once but that was before her breasts came in. When they did she had dropped her like hot garbage. It didn’t help that Ana developed late and poorly, bared filling a B cup. To distance herself from her past friendship with Ana, Jenna was malicious to her. Really Jenna had gone out of her way to be cruel to Ana. She called her names, spread lies about her and even convinced some teachers to grade her poorly. 

Ana had held out hope that one day the friend she made a blood pact with all those years ago would one day reimerge but that became impossible when one day Jenna was involved in a fatal car crash.

The whole school seemed to attend the funeral including Ana, She even went back to her house to give her condolences to the parents. Jenna’s mother thanked her and insisted she take some of Jenna’s possessions as a way to remember her.

Returning home exhausted Ana threw Jennas things aside and lay down on her bed.

“Well I guess a blood pact to stay friends forever can’t stop death” Ana said aloud to herself in her empty bedroom.

“Well that’s what you think…” said a disembodied but familiar voice.

Ana sat up in the bed to see the ghostly form of Jenna standing before her. Even in death she looked beautiful.

“Jenna?” asked Ana “is that you?”

“Well I’m sure you never have any boys or friends in here so it would have to be me” Jenna said finishing with a cruel laugh.

“But you’re dead, what are you doing here?”

“I’m here to keep that pact we made all those years ago. To be honest I don’t want to, I mean look at you, you’re human trash but that blood pact apparently is binding forever and besides it’s my ticket to life again.”

“So you can be resurrected? You can live again?”

“Not exactly” Jenna said with an evil smile “the pact we made all those years ago linked us forever. As long as you live I can never truly die. You are the only one that can see me.”

“So you’re like my guardian angel? You will help guide my life?”

Jenna let out a long cackle and started to drift slowly over to Ana “No consider me more like the new owner of your life.”

"Wait what are you doing? No! Stop! Noooooo!” Screamed Ana but it was too late, Jenna stepped into Ana’s body like like someone steps into a warm shower..

Ana tried to push her out but was finding it difficult to so. Not because it was painful but because it felt so good. Waves of pleasure seem to hit her every time she gave up resisting.

“Dont worry Ana this is a good thing. You have squandered your life up until now. You have no friends, you’re still a virgin. Let me take over. Let me turn use your body to become a sexy, powerful bitch. You can still experience everything, I will just be in the driving seat. You’re gonna love how if feels to be superior than everyone else. Don’t you want to know how all that feels?”

Ana was finding it hard to fight back. She had to admit that she had been jealous of Jenna, how she held sway over the school. Now here she was offering to make her the new Head Bitch. The thoughts of it made her wet. She could picture herself being the new head cheerleader, stalking the halls, bullying those beneath her, losers like her. The thoughts of getting fucked by a new guy every week nearly made her pass out from pleasure. She could feel Jenna’s influence already take over.

“Yessssss” Ana purred “I give in, use my body to become the head cheerleader again, use it to be fucked by the hot jocks. Make my body an evil slut just like yours was. I want to know how it feels to be a bad bitch, my body is yours.”

With that Ana’s body began to shift and change. Her once flat chest shot out to huge mounds of pleasure. Her stomach shrunk and toned. Her hips flared out giving her the perfect ass. Her hair turned from the black it once was to sleek long blonde locks. Her nails sharpened to long daggers and her complexion cleared up instantly and her eyes settled into a cold malicious stare. Their souls had become one.

The new Ana strode confidently over to Jenna’s belongings and picked out an outfit to wear. She stood triumphantly in front of the mirror taking herself in. She had chosen a short black shirt and a cleavage heavy black top. For the first time ever Ana’s body wore heels and they suited her new slender legs well. Topping it off she wore gold hoop earrings, something Jenna wore everyday.

“Mmmm you clean up well Ana. Or should I say I clean up well. In fact this new body is better than that old body of mine… after I had made some improvements of course. A new body deserves a new name, Ana doesn’t really reflect this beauty now does it.”

And so Anastasia was born. It had only taken her a few hours at school the next day to become the Queen bitch. People in school were relieved the reign of Jenna was over but they weren’t ready for the bad bitch Anastasia was.
