I don't think I've ever said this stream of words before, but I hope they killed themselves first! [Nov. 18th, 2006|01:04 am]

In 1844, in Lajore, India, the death of Raja Suchet Singh led to one of the greatest mass suicides of all time. When the Raja died, age old Hindu custom decreed that his widows be cremated with their husbands. The Raja had 10 wives and 300 concubines, and all of them sacrificed themselves on funeral pyres to be burnt along with their deceased husband.

And... not nearly as horrifying:

Pretty sure this is a new one.

I know I've said one like what Maudelynn mentioned above about drinking the fluids of dead husbands in wine... This one was new to me though. If you can find it, I'd love to see where I did this before, because HydeRandom must have posted it because JekyllRandom didn't know about it. ;)

Very sad stuff. *nod*
