Die Like a Rockstar.

For the entire month of October, Atlas Obscura is publishing tales of folks that basically have come back from the dead. Like this one, about a Swedish woman who survived the lowest body temperature ever recorded after, essentially, becoming frozen after a skiing accident.

But unlike these 31 Lazaruses, you probably won’t get a second chance at this thing we call life. So, you’ve got to make the best of it the first time around. That can be easily achieved with a little planning.
