this might seem racist but that is not my intention... If a Jew was killed by carbon monoxide poisoning, would they be kosher?

A) how is that racist?
B) Judaism isn't even a race.
C) No. No they wouldn't. Humans are mammals who neither chew their cud nor have cloven hooves. That puts us at 0/2 on the "can I eat this mammal?" checklist.

Edit: oh, and, poisoning doesn't meet the requirements for slaughtering a creature for being kosher. It's not humane enough, nor, in your scenario, is it properly blessed while killed. So that puts us at another 0/2 for "can I eat this formerly living this?"

Edit: OH! And, along with the cud thing, humans eat meat, which means we're a big no-no on the kosher scale, as Jews are only allowed to eat herbivores (unless it's a fish, in which case I'm not sure. I think we're only allowed to eat herbivore fish. I don't know, I hate fish)

Nope.

Death by carbon monoxide does not make you kosher, because blood remains inside you. Kosher law requires specific preparation of the animal to be eaten. So, the victim would have to be specifically cut into slabs of meat, soaked in water for 30 minutes, and covered in salt for about an hour before being cleaned again in order to conform to Jewish dietary law.

Statistically, there is someone out there masturbating to the thought of you right now.

I'm apparently on a four year delay when it comes to major games. I just started playing Assassins Creed a few days ago, and have been slowly making my way through the non-Portal games from the Orange Box (yes, I know Half Life 2 was out longer than four years but I bought the Box when it came out). If this keeps up I'll end up finishing Bioshock later this year, Borderlands in two years, Dragon Age: Origins in three, and Duke Nukem Forever when nobody cares about it any more (provided it is coming out).

Wikipedia informs me the only requirement is for fish is that they have scales and fins. For example salmon are carnivores.

Yeah.

It must have scales and fins, but I had no idea the dietary whatzit of such fish.

The only "fish" I can think of without scales and fins are mammals (and carnivorous/omnivorous), and sharks (nom nom meat).

I don't really consider shrimp, crab, lobsters, mussels, and oysters fish.

Furthermore, they get a specific mention in the torah about being kosher or not.

"All fish must have scales and fins! Also, no shrimp for it is the cockroach of the sea" or something to that effect.

This scene from Twin Peaks, I've only just realised, girly voiced annoying teen James, he's playing the theme to the series on his guitar.

There's a woman who comes into my place of employment every once in a while. She seems nice enough. Always thought she looked familiar.

Today, I placed it. She looks exactly like Welsh comedian Rob Brydon. Exactly. It's eerie. Put the man in a curly blonde wig and lipstick and you'd never be able to tell the difference.

Oh, fucking hell, that is so bizarre. They really somehow stick that in so subtly that you don't notice it, don't they? Of course, like you said, that could be because of girly-voiced echoey annoying James. Still, it's going to bother me for a while.

* The first Cell Phone I ever saw was a Nokia 5110, back in 1998. It's 2011 now. When the hell did that happen. This year I turn 19, come august I'll have been an adult a whole year. I remember back when, playing Tetris on my dad's old GameBoy. Sorry, I just feel so old now. I think I'll go and have a cry in the corner...

(Just for comparison's sake, This is what the 5110 looked like.
