Using One's Head
This story gives new meaning to the phrase "use your head." A 54-year-old British businessman reacted to his 34-year-old wife leaving him by tying a rope he kept in his Aston Martin car to a tree before wrapping the other end around his neck and driving his car at a high rate of speed into a busy street. The coroner who examined the decapitated man's body said, "I'm satisfied this was a deliberate attempt by Mr. Mellin to kill himself."
