How will you die?

Pretty morbid question, huh? Well, it all started when there was a line at the library. Of course, I need to take out more than the 35 books/tapes/cd's/dvd's that I already have out, right? So, since there's a line, I sit down at a computer. I'm surfing around, checking out my stumbleupon page when I decide to check out where bizarre-girl has been stumbling. So I get The Death Psychic - a site that will predict how you will die. My death will be, "While using a chainsaw to help your friend cut down a tree, you slip and sever your leg. You die from rapid blood loss." Put yours in a comment.

It all started while I was listening to Neil Young's "Rust Never Sleeps" CD and the song Powderfinger came on. I'd always gotten a Civil War vibe from the song - the first person protagonist's father had gone off to fight for the Confederacy, and the 22 year old was left to take care of the farm in his father's absence. Maybe it's after the war and the son survived, but the father did not. This site analyzes the lyrics with more depth, but less specificity. This also led me to the neil young-lynyrd skynyrd connection, since Powderfinger was reportedly offered to Skynyrd to record. The skynyrd-young connection was also immortalized by the band Throwback, which is local to me.
