OMG! I was a huge fan of Mythbusters (including Grant himself). This is horrible!

And he's not much older than me! This is tragic.

A sobering reminder to cherish every moment. We could go at any moment without warning. :frown:

Brain aneurysms are those silent killers that come upon you seemingly out of nowhere sometimes presaged with a thundering headache.

My aunt died of a brain aneurysm and her roommate said she was just drinking coffee looking normal and in a second collapsed and that was it.

One doctor explained it to me. A small blood vessel breaks and blood begins to flow into the surrounding brain tissue inflaming it. At the same time, This blood was supposed to oxygenate some other area of the brain and now it gets starved of oxygen.

My own aunt had also died of a brain aneurysm and I was told by my other aunt that she had collapsed as she finished getting dressed after she had finished washing up.

That's the thing about brain aneurysm -- it can happen suddenly and unexpectedly.
