    This is really sad. Along with being bizarre and wacky, and something for some people to laugh about... it's just sad.

    A 40-something year-old NH man named David Moore apparently decides to kill himself (out of the blue, according to friends- but this scenario likely took weeks of planning). He allegedly rigged up an elaborate guillotine to behead himself and a fire-bomb system to burn the house down after he was beheaded.

    But- the poorly-made guillotine malfunctioned, apparently leaving him with a fatal "gash" to the back of his neck.

    He then managed to make his way through the house, about 20 feet, to his bedroom, according to the trail of "dried blood" found in the house- and died. When? Who knows! That is another really sad part of this. He likely lay dead in there for more than a month, given family and neighbors' recollections of when they last saw him.

    Right, the firebombs never went off. See, the power strip that the bottles of accelerant were wired into was turned off (uh, this guy was working as an electrician???) Did he manage to shut it off because he thought he might live and didn't want to burn to death? Or did he forget to turn the power strip on in the first place? Ugh, I feel so bad for this man and his family (he has a young daughter, they say).

    What pain and mental illness would cause someone to do this, in such an involved and twisted manner... and then screw it up so completely? :(
