On September 25, 2012, Lennard Lewis died at his home of a seizure disorder. On the surface it appeared to be of natural causes. That is until East Baton Rouge Coroner William Clark, M.D. began looking around for the reason Lewis had the seizure disorder.

Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain, the Lion of Little Round Top, died in 1914 of injuries he received in the Civil War. He was tough.

The 11th mine exploded in 1955 (no one was injured).
The last mine has not exploded. Yet.
Some nutball will use this to argue that there is no difference between calibers. “See, a 22 caliber pinfire is just as effective as a 45acp. The man eventually died.”
The long-time killer from VN is Agent Orange.
There was a taxi driver in, (I think Pittsburgh) who experienced a bad neck pain. the hospital X-rayed him and the Dr. asked when did you get shot? Driver says ‘What? I’ve never been shot.” Found out 20 years prior, while as a rookie driver, he picked up a fare and near the end of the drive, he heard a Hell of a bang and turned around to ask the guy what he was doing. Guy said he tried to throw a firecracker out the window, but the wind blew it back in. The reason he remembered? He thought to himself “ I wonder if crap like this is gonna happen every day.”
Do you set off airport metal detectors?
“The long-time killer from VN is Agent Orange.”
That may be a myth cooked up by a fame-/glory-seeking* EPA scientist. The Ukraine’s Yuschenko got 1000x the limit of what was considered the safe dose in 2005. He’s still standing. The Wall Street Journal’s Michael Fumento comments:
