I'll Take "Bad Ways to Die" for 20,465 Baht, Alex

Hard on the heels of South Korea's recent stem cell research break-through comes this medical news from Thailand -- super glue is a cure for moodiness:
A young Thai man with a history of moodiness has killed himself by gluing his mouth and nose shut with super glue.

Bangkok police say the young man’s body was found this morning in his bedroom, apparently after suffocating overnight. They say a small amount of cash and a note saying “Here is all that I have, take what you please” were also found on the bed.

The man’s family told police he had argued with his sister yesterday over some money she’d borrowed and not repaid.
