A Russian computer programmer who believed that spending the night buried alive would bring him good luck didn't survive the subterranean ritual.

What do you expect from a programmer
The water resistant blockage free breathing tube is a feature of 'dipshitz coffin 1.1' and not available to users of the release candidate (0.13 perchance?)

Look on the bright side
His estate need not fork out for a funeral.
Awkward phone call
Hello, is that the police? I've just discovered that the friend I buried alive last night is dead.

Anybody know if his lottery numbers came up the following week?
cunning excuse for murder?
This is not a title
Well, no need to dig him up I guess.
On the other hand, he could have been...
