How to Survive Being Buried Alive

Medical practices have come a long way in the last hundred years. Case in point, the safety coffin. Also known as a security coffin, the safety coffin was a popular item in the 18th and 19th centuries. Its goal?

Cricket fantasies pretty much always involve winning off the final ball. Obviously you try and w...
