Trivia Tuesday: I See Dead People

I'm tired. I guess that happens for all new parents. As a result, my blog posts seem to be shorter and shorter. Plus, there's really not much going on in my life. Do you really need to hear about my experiences changing diapers? I didn't even leave the house this weekend except for two walks around the neighborhood. I guess I could write about the Penguins and Pirates, but that's not going to happen today. At least Passover ends tonight, and I can eat normal food again.

Anyway, you don't want to hear about this. You want, no DEMAND, trivia. Listed below are the year, location and causes of death. Your challenge is to name the famous dead people

1. 1916, St. Petersburg, Russia: Poisoned, shot four times, bludgeoned, castrated and drowned.

2. 1955, Cholame, CA: Neck broken in car accident on US Route 466.

3. 1962, Brentwood, CA: "Probable" suicide by acute barbiturate poisoning in bedroom.

4. 1977, Memphis, TN: Drug-induced heart attack in the bathroom.

5. 1990, Alpine Valley Resort, WI: Helicopter accident after performing a concert.

6. 1993, Wilmington, NC: Shot by a prop gun during the making of "The Crow."

7. 2006, London: Poisoned to death with polonium-210.

8. 2006, Great Barrier Reef: Impaled by a stingray barb while filming a documentary

9. 2009, Mont Tremblant Resort, Quebec: Epidural hematoma after falling during a ski lesson.

10. 2009, Bangkok: Suffocated during supposed autoerotic asphyxiation mishap in a closet in hotel room.

As always please leave your answers in the comments section below and do not use the internet for assistance. Good luck!

That's teamwork! Everyone chipped in to get the correct answers. James Dean is the right answer for #2. We actually talked about Mansfield for the answer, but it turned out that she died either on a different road or a differnt year.
