Dictionary Definition : Laura: Also known as "Solveig", her internet pseudonym, this female specimen of Homo Sapiens founded the Literary Cabinet world. One can spot "Laura," by the fun she has grading papers and drinking coffee, with triple coffee consumption ever since she quit smoking. Like another species, Homo Sapiens Zarasahanous, she enjoys picking at the extreme Twilight fans. This specimen is particularly fond of procrastinating, as most of the other species of the Literary Cabinet Universe are.

In short, the book "Final Exits" by Michael Largo is a comprehensive encyclopedia of how we die. From the most terrible diseases via completely over-estimating yourself to bizarre freak accidents, the book describes just about every fathomable way to meet your maker, complete with illustrations.

In some ways, Largo has a bit too much fun breaking out all the gory details, in other points, he remains strangely vague, as if the data were unclear - or perhaps he simply took pity on the reader. However, "Final Exits" makes for an extremely entertaining read, and I recommend it to anyone.

Dictionary Definition : Dictionary Definition: Paul-One of the few male LC creatures known to exist, this specimen is one of the eldest in the LC universe. This specimen is known to work long hours but still makes time to commingle with fellow LC denizens. This being has a peculiar sense of humor and has been observed to shun smilies, although this aversion has been lessening as of late.

I've heard of this book but never picked it up. It sounds similar to a television show (probably influenced by this book) called "1001 Ways To Die".

My paternal grandfather died in his sleep at the age of 88. I wouldn't mind inheriting this particular trait.
