AKA Scott Millet

Born: 1979
Died: 13-Aug-1999
Location of death: Newport Beach, CA
Cause of death: Accident - Misc

Gender: Male
Race or Ethnicity: White
Occupation: Victim

Nationality: United States
Executive summary: Died trying to "hack a street light"

Late one August night, Scott Millet and his sister were up watching the Perseid meteor shower through a telescope. Upon deciding that the light from a nearby streetlamp was impeding their view, Millet tried to cut the power to it with a pair of wire cutters. He was electrocuted, dying soon after being taken to the hospital.

Millet's death would have gone unnoticed by the world at large had he not announced his feat ahead of time on an EFnet IRC channel he frequented. As a memorial, his IRC nickname, "skOt", was retired; querying it returns the simple phrase, "[8/13/99 1am] we are all gunna miss you brother". Curiously, a similar memorial was not erected following the drug overdose of 21-year-old Brandon Vedas, alias "ripper", on 11 January 2003. Vedas had chronicled his binge both on IRC and with his webcam, with the famous last words, "I told u I was hardcore".
