In his song about the pharaoh, Steve Martin sings, "Don't want no fancy funeral, just one like ol' King Tut."

Compared to to other pharaohs, Tutankhamun's funeral wasn't.

On January 26, 1972 Serbian airline hostess Vesna Vulovic survived a 33,310 foot free-fall on a jet which exploded mid-air following a terrorist bombing. Though left in a coma for twenty-seven days and terribly injured, she eventually recovered and returned to work for the same airline.

Good grief, that's amazing if true. I guess psychics don't apply to some people, huh?

Read of a gunner from a burning RAF Lancaster who's chute burned, so he just decided to get it over with. Fell some 20.000 feet into a series of tree limbs and a deep snow drift. he lived, and the Germans didn't believe him till they found the remains of his plane.

In the late 1950s and early 1960s the CIA ran a secret program called "Operation Midnight Climax." Prostitutes lured men to CIA-run brothels where the johns were secretly dosed with LSD to observe the drug's effects.

I heard it was called MKULTRA, and a up and coming police guy robbed a bar, hurt his career. Later, when he heard about this, he tried to file a lawsuit  against the CIA, only to discover that all files about MKULTRA were destroyed. Poor guy.

"Midnight Climax" was a sub-program of MKULTRA, probably the craziest one.

Today the great Charles Addams...

His favorite pastime was said to be wandering through graveyards and imagining what the people buried under his feet looked like.

He never assigned names or defined relationships among the Addams Family in his New Yorker cartoons, hence the confusion on some TV episodes as to whether Uncle Fester is Gomez' brother or his uncle.

Also, Charles Addams wanted to name Pugsley Addams Pubert Addams, but network censors said that might offend people, so the name lay dormant until the feature films of the 1990s.

Two of his closest friends were Alfred Hitchcock and Ray Bradbury, both of whom referenced Addams in their work. (Hitchcock in North By Northwest, and Bradbury in several short stories.)

Addams was a firm disbeliever in the supernatural but loved the macabre and said he enjoyed Halloween more than any other day of the year.

Finally, perhaps best of all, his ashes were buried in a pet cemetery.
