These stories are completely true. I swear.
There was this six year old boy who'd been bought a chemistry set for Christmas. He'd made this potion in the evening and left it out on the kitchen table. His parents got up in the middle of the night, saw the potion, thought it was blackcurrent juice, drank it and died.
In America, there was this man and woman kissing in a field during a storm. They got struck by lightning and the woman died but the man was merely knocked unconscious. Because of the heat from the lightning they'd been fused together at their hands. A bear then came along and ate the woman's face. The guy came to, but couldn't move because they were stuck to the ground and was left to stare at the remnants of his dead girlfriend's face until he died of starvation. They were like that for a year until a group of Brownies came along on a hike and found the decomposing bodies.
A family living in Britain of Russian descent were sent a package from some relatives from the motherland. It was a jar with some powder and with it was an accompanying note written in Russian, so none of the family could read it. Figuring it to be the ashes of their Great Uncle they spread the powder somewhere appropriate, only to get a phone call a week later from the relatives asking if they'd enjoyed the gravy mix they'd sent.
