What if psychologists ruled the world? In real life?

Bury yourself alive for good luck – or not!

There have been reports from Russia of people burying themselves alive in a coffin overnight.

Superstitious people believe that they will then have good luck for the rest of their lives.

Unfortunately, despite making breathing pipes and having a bottle of water and a mobile phone with him the latest person to try self burial, a 35 year-old computer programmer, died, probably because heavy rain blocked the breathing pipe.

It’s not the first such fatal mistake as an earlier attempt – when a man did it to overcome his fear of death – resulted in his death when the coffin collapsed under the weight of the soil.

Children don’t try this at home!
