For the past two weeks, I’ve been working my way through AAAAALLL the Forensic Files eps on Amazon Prime. I started with the later “seasons” but then went back to the beginning. It’s kind of fascinating to see how technology has changed. I about died laughing the one ep where they were doing a search on Alta Vista. Crazy.
Things I’ve noticed:
- Anti-freeze seemed to be a pretty popular method of murder for awhile.
- As did arsenic, which seems so very 19th century.
- You’re never really unlucky (e.g., multiple dead spouses); you’re the killer.
- Put a caveat in your will that says do not cremate if there is ANY suspicion of how you died.
- Although, cremation isn’t entirely fool proof.
- If you’re going to kill your significant other for their life insurance, don’t purchase it or up the amount within weeks of the death. JFC.
In other news, I’m sort of wishing I’d stuck with the Forensic Science degree pursuit. But the program at Drexel, at least that year/semester, was so poorly run. Naturally I start considering this all again when I’m within a couple months of paying off my grad loan for that clusterfuck. Someday I’ll learn. Ha.
