I've heard there are conspiracy theories related to Cobain's death.

Re: The last words of famous people.

Most of those are nonsense, but especially Cesar's "Et tu, Brute?", since it's a line written by Shakespeare.

Re: The last words of famous people.

You're right about "Et tu, Brute?"

Which other ones do you think are falsely attributed to the person?

Re: The last words of famous people.

Most of them. Tradionally, great men (not so much women), as a mark of respect, had last words attributed to them that not only dignified their death but honored their life.

We do the opposite these days, because we're devolving as a species.

Re: The last words of famous people.

What is the opposite?

Re: The last words of famous people.

Deride, disrespect, denigrate, criticize, and so on.

Robert Alton Harris (California Gas Chamber, 1922) – “You can be a king or a street sweeper, but everyone dances with the Grim Reaper.”
1922? Why do I remember that case so well? Harris was executed in 1992, mainly for killing two teenage boys in San Diego while on a crime spree. I remember that after he killed the boys he stole their hamburgers and ate them.
