6 Near Death Experiences Caught on Video

YouTube has given us a lot of things: vlogs, Fred, one billion parody videos of Beyonce’s “Single Ladies” starring adorable kittens instead of saucy black ladies. And now, finally, it’s given us something to make up for all of that horrible, horrible bullshit: The ability to watch people nearly die from the safety of our own Cheeto-stained ergonomic office chairs. I’m not talking about hillbilly fireworks accidents or teenage skateboard shenanigans, either; I’m talking about very real, extremely terrifying and possibly bowel-exploding, first-person POV accounts that chronicle what it’s really like to survive the scariest disasters possible. You can experience all of it — the thrills, the adventure, the adrenalin — and you don’t even have to put on pants! In fact, you probably shouldn’t.

King Tut’s Family Secrets

 

By carrying out CT scans of King Tutankhamun‘s mummy, we were able in 2005 to show that he did not die from a blow to the head, as many people believed. Our analysis revealed that a hole in the back of his skull had been made during the mummification process. The study also showed that Tutankhamun died when he was only 19—perhaps soon after he suffered a fracture to his left leg. But there are mysteries surrounding Tutankhamun that even a CT scanner cannot reveal. Now we have probed even deeper into his mummy and returned with extraordinary revelations about his life, his birth, and his death.

Pat Tillman’s Father To Army Investigator: ‘F— You… And Yours’ (EXCLUSIVE)

The military really screwed the pooch on this one.  I feel nothing but sympathy for the Tillman family; and I believe his father is correct in his assessment of the facts.
