Several residents of Strasburg

Danced themselves to death in 1518

For some reason, a woman named Frau Troffea took to the streets of Strasburg and began doing a jovial dance. She danced for a solid 6 days straight.

After that week, she was joined by 34 other townsfolk. A month later, nearly 400 people were dancing, with 15 dying per day due to exhaustion, heart attacks and strokes.

To date, no one knows the reason for “the dancing plague,” and if they were really dancing happily or just having a mass seizure.

Grigori Rasputin

Multiple assassinations in 1916

Rasputin was a creepy mystic who had the Empress of Russia wrapped around his finger for some reason, and the upper class of Russia was worried that he’d get too much power. So they plotted to assassinate him.

First, they poisoned him with food laced with cyanide. He asked for wine to wash it down. They gave him poisoned wine. He drank 3 glasses. Nothing happened.

So they just decided to shoot him instead. He took several shots to the body, and kept on fighting back. So they shot him in the head, and he stayed down.

To make sure he was gone though, they wrapped him up and threw him in the icy river. Even then, the conspirators weren’t 100% sure he was dead.
