Discovery Health Channel is currently airing a show by Dr. G (Corner).

First (#5) way shown Carbon Monoxide poisoning from a portable generator.
Second (#4) Microbial Agents (MRSA)
Might be worth viewing

EDIT: Next program titled "Could You Survive". Looks like they are having people undergo performance tests to see if they could save themselves / others.

Thanks.

"...#3 Alcohol..."

I'll drink to that. My late mother-in-law was an alcoholic from her teen years, was a bootlegger during prohibition, and lived the last four years of her life with us. Drank a jug of Canadian Mist, straight, every three days. She died at 95. And not from anything other than old age...

She did get popped for DUI once, slapped the CHP officer for arresting her. She was a hoot...

I am starting to think you are talking about my grandmother. It's always fun having to explain to your girlfriends dad, that yes sir that is my grandmother in the back of your patrol car.

Maybe both of the ladies in question were preserved (Pickled?) so that is why they lasted so long.

I asked my grandpap if he ever got hungover, he stated "gotta sober up some for that".

Must be genetics.

Mine liked to follow up a shot of straight whiskey (she used a tin measuring cup as her shot glass, we now use it in our kitchen) with a big spoonfull of peanut butter (the perfect survival food), then a bird sip of water (with her pinky finger held out, because that is what "ladies" do)...
