I haven't linked to Oddee in a while, but here's a pretty good one: the 10 Manliest Ways to Die. I think my favorite is Eleazar Maccabeus, who was crushed to death by a war elephant (although he still managed to kill the elephant).
But then there's #10: Franz Reichelt, who managed to document his own death on film. The video is only 1:36 long, and it wasn't hard to download even on dial-up. I think the most horrifying part is at the very end, when it looks to me like someone is measuring how deep a hole he made when he hit the ground.
