Synopsis for "One Must Die!"Edit

A scientist theorizes that if one animal can save its life by killing its mate, it will do so.

Synopsis for "It Can't Be Done"Edit

A clown wants desperately to be the center of attention on the highwire and practices until he can cross it. The circus manager is unimpressed, however, claiming that he doesn't bring anything new to the performance and fires him for being a lousy clown. He tells him that if he can come up with something sensational he'll let him write his own ticket but doesn't think he'll ever see the man again. When the guy shows up again the manager threatens to have him thrown out, but he pleads with him to take in his act. When he ascends the highwire, he detaches it and walks on air before the startled manager. He thinks it must be a trick but can't see how it's done. He puts on a sensational show before a huge audience and is a smash hit. Several people want to sign his act but the clown declines saying this evening will be his only performance. He leaves the tent and stares for a moment at the promotional poster before his ghost returns to his grave as he had committed suicide the night he was fired.

  • Contrary to popular belief, Joseph-Ignace Guillotin did not actually invent the guillotine. He lobbied for its widespread adoption as a humane alternative to hanging.
