[music |Summertime - Billy Holiday]

In 1929 at the age of forty-nine dance revolutionary Isadora Duncan was strangled to death by her own scarf when it became entangled in the rear wheel of a Bugati sports car. She was not driving, she was being chaufferued by a car salesman with whom she had become illicitly involved.

That's right doggy! You show... your own leg... who's boss?

Unfortunate about the dancer though. I'd heard something like that happened years ago too. You think that after that people would stop wearing long scarves in convertables.

That IS unfortunate.
And, irony is working today.
Haha, in the book series "a series of unfortuante events" there are a pair of "twins" named Isadora and Duncan.
I'm sure their name has something to do with her.
But you said unfortunate.
Then wrote that.
How great is that?
And the dog.
WOW...
just..
wow

lol!!! Maybe the author though the same thing when he heard about the vent and it stuck in his head? I've been meaning to read those. So far haven't found them cheap enough. -- And right? =)

That death is just random and stupid enough that it makes me think I might have been that woman in a former life. It would explain both my deadly fear of scarves and of 1920's era roadsters. Plus, I've always expected to die in some elaborately strange and unpredictable way, like being electrocuted while an alligator eats me or spontaneously combusting in a swimming pool.

Those of us neuro dweebs with too much time on our hands theorize that that dog has the poochy equivalent of alien limb syndrome, which sometimes happens when the structure that connects the two halves of the brain is damaged. One half of his brain doesn't recognize his own other leg.

For the Dog, or for Miss Duncan?

And why did they deserve that?

My parents saw a little girl in a car that was playing with something on a string that got caught in the wheel and her finger got ripped off. My dad ended up driving them to the hospital. :-/

I love my daddy...and when he tells me that story i cry 'cause i can immagine how badly that would suck ass for her mom (who was driving and almost caused an accident).

Gah!

I was sure when I started reading this that the story was going somewhere else. Thank God it was just the girls finger.

(And yes, I realize a finger is a big deal but it could have been a LOT worse!!!)
