Don't snort ocean bricks

If you're an angler who finds a brick of something floating in the ocean, you might want to think twice before snorting the contents, no matter how inviting.

Kenneth told investigators that about 90 minutes later, Thomas began running around the boat, throwing things into the water, including a cell phone and a VHF radio. Thomas also picked up knives, pliers and a gaff and removed the cowling from the engine, which fell overboard and sank, leaving the brothers stranded.

The boaters were rescued by a passing vessel but Thomas passed away a few hours later at the hospital. A cause of death has yet to be determined. via Gawker.
