Po: Do you hear your own heartbeat?
Caine: No.
Po: Do you hear the grasshopper that is at your feet?
Caine: Old man, how is it that you hear these things?
Po: Young man, how is it that you do not?

Looks like a case of auto-erotic asphyxiation. The INXS singer died from that didn't he?

Carradine 'Died During Auto-Erotic Sex Act'

http://news.sky.com/skynews/Home/World- ... Police_Say

David Carradine may have died accidentally from suffocation or heart failure during an auto-erotic sex act, according to Thai police.

The Kung Fu and Kill Bill star was found with a noose around his neck and another rope around his genitals in a wardrobe in his hotel room in Bangkok.

Police commander Lieutenant General Worapong Siewpreecha said it was unclear whether the 72-year-old killed himself or died from suffocation or heart failure due to ejaculation.

"There was a rope tied around his neck and another rope tied at his sex organ, and the two ropes were tied together and hung in the closet," he said.

"Under these circumstances we cannot be sure that he committed suicide but he may have died from masturbation."

A post-mortem is expected later while forensic police have already dusted Carradine's hotel room and are testing a drink found there.

Forensic expert Porntip Rojanasunan said the death appeared to have been caused by an "auto-erotic accident".

"It's not suicide or murder but he died ... after masturbation," he said.

Initially, police said the death was being treated as a suspected suicide.

Michael Hutchence, singer with Australian band INXS, died in similar circumstances in 1997.

A maid found his naked body in a Sydney hotel room, where he had hanged himself with a leather belt.

Carradine, who was filming in the Thai capital, had failed to appear for a meal with the film crew on Wednesday.

His body was discovered by a hotel maid at the Park Nai Lert hotel the following morning.

Police said there were no signs of a struggle or other suspicious circumstances.

Carradine leaves a wife and three children.

"His family is in shock," said Tiffany Smith, of Carradine's management firm, Binder & Associates.

"They have the same belief we have. There was no way David did this to himself."

Carradine was a member of a Hollywood acting family that included his father, character actor John Carradine, and brother Keith.

He appeared in more than 100 feature films with such directors as Martin Scorcese, Ingmar Bergman and Hal Ashby.

One of his prominent early film roles was as singer Woody Guthrie in Ashby's 1976 biopic Bound for Glory.

He was perhaps most famous for his role as the fugitive half Chinese Shaolin monk Kwai Chang Caine in the 1970s western TV drama Kung Fu.

Hmmm, belts and wordrobes, possibly slices of tangerine involved? Must be a great experience to risk death for a special wank?

Maybe I should try it - but nah, won't bother.
