Quote:

It is about his death?

"On 9 April he had a seizure of some sort while using his lavatory and died four days later, at the age of 48."

from:

http://www.samurai-archives.com/kenshin.html




Right, but there's a very interesting 'rumor' concerning said death and the lavatory.

The quote was from the Kenshin Gunki, by the way.

Either, the hid in the night soil bucket and shot a poison dart, or he ate something disgusting that didn't agree with him (IOW, his Iron Belly QiGong didn't help???)?

Well, the story goes that a ninja hid out in the sewage pit and when 'ol Uesugi squatted down to do his business the assassin jammed a spear right up the poop shoot!

Probably not true, as more evidence points to stomach cancer, but an interesting tale nonetheless.

Ain't that weird... that was my first instinct... but I opted for the G-rated poison dart instead. (Shoulda gone with my "gut" the first time)

I'm sure he would have felt the pain elsewhere first rather than his stomach if THAT was indeed the case!

My NCO school instructor recounted a story of his days in Ranger school... interesting stuff involving sewage pits and the rest...

I guess it's harlan's turn?

Well, if it is, how about:

'I am become death, the destroyer of worlds.'

Who said it, what was the occasion, and the original source of the 'quote'.
