Death is something that everybody has to face in life at some or the other point. Most people wish for a peaceful and painless death. A few people, however, hope to end this journey in a rage of audacious blaze. There are few who wish to leave the world with their boots still on. It’s better to face whatever comes! Most of us will be consumed by either old age or a heart failure…with the exception of these people. They died in the most bizarre and unbelievable way possible–
