    there once was an old man who was 70% blind and had no sense of smell.

    he lived with his son who took care of him.

    one day the son had to go somewhere for a few days.

    the father was not worried as this happened every so often

    the father one night decided for some pasta but he needed onions.

    so he went to the grocery store. to buy onions. what he thought were onions were actually daffodil bulbs. he went home cooked them on the stove and promptley died. because dafodil bulbs are poisionous to humans.

    This sounds like a urban ledgend to me. Besides, if he is blind and cant smell, is it really his fault he died?

    actually i watched it on some show about the 7 strangest ways to die, and they had his nurse interviewed or something. so it was true

    Not saying you know better, but is everything you hear on tv true? and besides, i thought he was living with his son, who couldnt be there for that day. Wouldnt that be the time that the nurse would come over? And they dont sell dafodill blubs in the veggie section at my grocery store.

    Just seem like there are a lot of things wrong with this story.
