unless he didn't know exactly how hot the water was, then that's pretty tragic

Think about the man who lost his dog and his best friend.

it wasn't a puppy. it was a fully grown great dane or something. don't know about the dog but according to this news article I don't think it survived...

"Ratliff, pulling Kirwan from the spring, suffered second degree burns on his own feet. Another visitor, Earl Welsh, took Kirwan's hand; the skin already was peeling from his body. He appeared to be blind, his eyes totally white. Another man ran up to remove Kirwan's shoes; the skin came off with them. "Don't do that," Welsh said, and Kirwan, exhausted, said, "It doesn't matter." With third degree burns over 100 percent of his body, it didn't. The next day he was dead."

Over 100% of his body? What did they do burn his soul too?

This man died after being shot three times with a shotgun.

How did they deduce suicide from this?

What aren't you getting sir? I understand the concept of suicide, but when you see a guy shot dead with three blasts of a shotgun, surely suicide wasn't the first thought.

It would have been laying on his lap, gun pointed towards him, covered in gore from the previous shots. I'm not a crime analyst, but that would be very indicative of suicide.

So I can shoot you three times up close, wipe the prints, then put it on your lap pointing towards you? :D

Well there's many more factors then just that. A postmortem can determine the angle of impact when the shots came in, showing how close the gun was and from where it was firing. If there are no signs of a breaking and entering (door is still locked, window is closed and untouched etc.) then you can determine if anyone came in. There could also be evidence indicating whether or not he had depression issues before dying, or whether or not somebody he new had a motive for killing him.

There's a lot more information to glean than you would think, so long as you have the right people looking in the right places.

Seriously? Are you ******* retarded? What aren't you understanding? They would have checked more than prints. They would have checked ballistics, seen HIS prints on the gun, etc. That means they would check the angle, how far away, surrounding area showing any form of break in, study his body during autopsy to check if he was in a struggle, checked for gunpowder around the area, to confirm that the shot was taken from a close distance... They wouldn't just say "ohh he has the gun it was suicide". ******* ******** god damn, you're the reason people are uneducated when dealing with firearms.

Probably left a suicide note. Maybe it had information only he'd know or no one else would/could know. And they might be able to get it was legit because of his hand writing.

Well the story is from 762... probably a bit difficult to retain accurate, firsthand information from that long ago.

How can a ship torpedo itself..?!
#25 to #6 - anon

(05/12/2013) [-]
Torpedoes used to be very simple when they first saw widespread use, often only going on heat or sound sensors, and if the torpedo missed it's initial target, there was a chance of it turning around and picking up on the sound/heat of it's launching point. Happened to submarines a lot during WW2, and to surface ships as well in WW1.

Who knows, 2 years later another ship torpedoed themself.
1944: 74 men died when the US Submarine Tang (SS-306) accidentally torpedoed itself during a combat patrol off the coast of Taiwan.

Maybe they turned the torpedo rear end forward and fired... so the propeller motor would swim back at the ship and detonate...

But that's kinda retarded..

Relevant(ish):

A man wishing to kill himself decided to be thorough and remove any chance that he might survive.
So he went to a tall cliff above the ocean, drank a vial of poison, set himself on fire, put a noose around his neck, put a pistol to his temple and jumped.
The shot missed, severing the rope. He hit the water pretty hard, and the blow to his stomach caused him to vomit, removing the poison from his stomach. The water extinguished the fire.

He survived.
