If videogames have taught me anything, it's that an assassin can solve a lot of problems. But sometimes plans fall apart, and sometimes it's for the absolute DUMBEST reasons.

Also: all the assassination attempts the emperor Nero made against his own mother are pretty ridiculous, including Rube Goldberg level traps, self-sinking boats and good old fashioned creative assassination burnout.

There is also an interesting story of a failed assassination in Germany. Though, to be fair, it's rather sad than interesting. There was a plot to kill Hitler with explosives in a briefcase that was placed under a table at an important meeting on july 20th 1944. The only reason why Hitler survived this was because someone shoved the briefcase on the other side of the table leg and so Hitler was shielded from the explosion by the tabletop.

LOL the poison guy kinda reminds me of the movie, the princess bride, where the protagonist survives being poisoned because he built an immunity to it over years of consuming it.

A BBC show a couple years ago built a mockup of the then parliament building and blew it up with 'just' the amount of black powder that hadn't gotten wet, the building was totally obliterated. The stand in manikin king and parliament were reduced to parts. They made the wonderful observation 'Of course the real thing would have been much worse, the parliament building of the time was surrounded by more buildings, that would have shattered and stone, wood, and metal shrapnel would have rained down over a mile radius, everything within 200 yards would have been shredded. If all of the powder had blown the crater would be a new lake filled by the Thames.'

I don't know how many non-Brits know this but England still has a holiday called 'bonfire night' or 'Guy Fawkes night' where, to this day, we burn a fake guy Fawkes on a bonfire and set off fireworks on the 5th of November to commemorate the stopping of the gunpowder plot.

I must among english speaking people I've heard talking you are one of the ones with the best pronounciations of Italian only your g could be less "french sweet and the r could be more palatal but like...good job seriously, you even got the double s right (oh and to be honest the g i signora isn't wrong, the gn sound is ok, I'm mostly thinking about the college hell video and Bolge which is a word that has a sweet g but Italian sweet g is still not as sweet as as english or french sweet g...man that is convoluted to say the list)

Remember remember the 5th of November With gunpowder treason and plot For I see no reason Why gunpowder treason Should ever be forgot. This is a British nursery rhyme kind of thing that just about everyone who grew up here will know, which goes hand in hand with November 5th to this day being bonfire night, where events will be held to build massive communal bonfires, burn down effigies of Guy Fawkes and set off all the fireworks you can get your hands on, basically to show the idiot how to actually blow something up. It’s hardly the most terrible act committed against the country but apparently it’s the one that we really need to hammer into his grave.

...and every year since on November 5th we celebrate their utter failure by burning scarecrows on top of bonfires. Bonfire Night is messed up and I kind of love it Sorry folks, V For Vendetta lied to you! It wasn’t a case of freedom fighters failing against an oppressive monarchical government, it was a wannabe monarchical government trying and failing to explode the current monarchical government.

Nah, they didn't have high explosives yet, just explosives. And the advent of high explosives involves/elevates Alfred Nobel, who is something of a history meme himself.
