That's almost as bad as the guy who died from getting bitten by a beaver.

How the b******s did a cow get on the roof?

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.

This is the farmers fault.  He didn't fix the roof so the cow couldn't fall through, or put up a fence so the cow couldn't get on the roof.  A clear case of not learning from the past.

I do not go to church haven't for thirty years.
There are other Mormons on this site. So if I have misspoken about the beliefs. I welcome their input.
I am not perfect and never will be. I do strive to be true to myself. I do my best to stay true to the Mormon faith. Thanks for caring and if you don't peace be with you.

Well, we all have to go some time, but if I had the option to choose one way, this wouldn´t be the worst.... killed by a stray cow while sleeping? .... OK! At least it has a really big oddity factor.

Of course I would prefer dying while having sex with a voluptuous 25-year old, but hey.... nothing is perfect.

I have seen houses where a cow or anything could just walk right on top.  These were buried in the ground.
