Subject: RE: Folklore: Is this an urban myth?
I have heard of a parallel case - don;t know where or when, maybe in a novel - of a disgruntled husband who told his wife he was "just going out for a newspaper" (or perhaps a pack of cigarettes)... and never returned.

Am sure this was not to told to me as a true FOAF tale.

However, I was told in the '90s that you must never fasten your auto seatbelt, because in a certain kind of crash, it can slice your liver out.

It "actually happened" to an unfortunate FOAF.
