This Day in Failure: March 19

2004: Boonreung Bauchan, 34, (aka “Snake Man”), dies after a bite on the elbow from a deadly mamba. He sustained the bite a day earlier while showcasing a cobra to fellow villagers in Thailand. In 1998, Bauchan earned a mention in the Guinness Book of World Records by spending seven days in an enclosure with poisonous snakes.

1972: The Los Angeles Lakers defeat the Golden State Warriors 162-99, a 63-point margin of victory. It remains the largest margin of victory in NBA history until 1991, when the Cleveland Cavaliers defeat the Miami Heat 148-80.
