Recently, a long time member of our household bit the dust. He then sat floating in a semi-yellow pool of unclean water for two days before we realized it.
If you're quiet in life, you will surely pass quietly and probably unnoticed. Newton was very quiet.
For all the perils and mishaps he survived, the grim reaper finally caught up with him. I guess he finally got bored of Iraq and other troubled parts of the world and found the time to slaughter a lonely newt.
Farewell Newton, enjoy the great sewer in the sky.
