image for Reflection on The Lucky Guy From Pompeii Nice Catch!

In 79 A.D. Mount Vesuvius erupted and destroyed the Roman city of Pompeii killing 2,000 souls as it went. A thick carpet of volcanic ash and dust poured across the city and don't forget the heat. This day would be the last for many.

One man, whom archaeologists claim suffered an infection of the tibia, was found in the ruins with a stone door jamb on his head. What a way to go!

First of all, he wasn't running, most likely walking quickly getting pushed around by those other able-bodied bastards that could care less about him. Then, in an instant, a huge slab of stone instantly decapitates him.

This guy had probably the worst day of his life, and now a couple thousand years later people can see the comical way that he was killed.

Memes are trolling the Internet already about the unlucky son-of-a-bitch from Pompeii.

If I were an over-weight aging rock star with an addiction to pills, and died on the toilet trying to take a dump, then I wouldn't want thousands or even millions of people to later laugh about how I kicked the bucket.

Sorry Elvis, but you are not the king after that. You're status is lowered to Jack at best and can drop if archaeologists unearth more about other horrible things you did.
