I guess he isn't dead then.

He was trying to get away from his wife... and it didn't work. He shouldda stayed laying down!

Snopes has some cool info on being buried alive.

I wonder how you mess-up something like that.
"Doctor, is this man dead?"
"Uh, yeah, whatever...I guess so."
 
2002-01-15 10:54:14 AM  
"I think I'll go for a walk..."
"You're not fooling anyone, you know.."

Sounds like typical Humana patient care.....


Hmmm I wonder what happened to my other post.
 
2002-01-15 10:55:44 AM  
is gasping for breath another word for walking away?
Dont see a mention of walking...
 
2002-01-15 10:56:07 AM  
being dead or living in India?
flip a coin!
 
2002-01-15 10:56:14 AM  
It doesn't mention anything about driving nails through your ball sack........

Or am I thinking of The Serpent and The Rainbow???

Back to putting escape hatches on coffins...

I knew I should have nailed his feet in.

Was it Edgar Allen Poe who had the pressure plate on his chest and tthe tomb that could be opened from the inside?

Thermos...it was a reference, not directly to the article.
And a very funny one at that.
 
2002-01-15 11:11:27 AM  
Negligent? Yes. But how cool would it be to have a copy of your own death certificate - and be alive to appreciate it. Great story to freak out the grandkids.

DEAD PERSON:
I'm not dead!
CART MASTER:
'Ere. He says he's not dead!
CUSTOMER:
Yes, he is.
DEAD PERSON:
I'm not!
CART MASTER:
He isn't?
CUSTOMER:
Well, he will be soon. He's very ill.
DEAD PERSON:
I'm getting better!
CUSTOMER:
No, you're not. You'll be stone dead in a moment.
CART MASTER:
Oh, I can't take him like that. It's against regulations.
DEAD PERSON:
I don't want to go on the cart!
CUSTOMER:
Oh, don't be such a baby.
 
2002-01-15 11:16:17 AM  
I feel happy! I want to go for a walk!

2002-01-15 11:35:08 AM  
didn't I reference this already? ;)

Sukhlal Gautam, 55, was admitted to a government hospital ...

Further reasons not to trust the government with our care.

but declared dead and shifted to a mortuary 14 days later....

I must assume that he wasn't "dead" for 14 days before being shifted to a mortuary.

SLAYERSWINE, FLA Chick sent you the topless photo, correct?
 
2002-01-15 12:12:48 PM  
A quick embalming would have prevented this.

Kent Brockman: Mr. Burns was taken to the Springfield Hospital and pronounced dead on arrival. [pause] He was later taken to a better hospital and his condition was upgraded to alive.


(or something like that, I'm too lasy to find the transcript.)
 
2002-01-15 12:19:32 PM  
Transcript?

I told the witchdoctor I was in love with you
I told the witchdoctor I was in love with you
And then the witchdoctor he told me what to do
He said to
ooh ee ooh-ah-ah ting, tang, walla-walla bing-bang
ooh ee ooh-ah-ah ting, tang, walla-walla bing-bang
 
2002-01-15 01:04:35 PM  
Sounds intentional. As if somebody actually was trying to get rid of him. I doubt they would mess up declaring somebody dead.
 
2002-01-15 01:17:35 PM  
Tre_bumpn: I admire your respect for humanity, but I don't share it this morning. It makes perfect sense to me that some overworked government doctor declared this guy dead and moved on to the next patient.

Policy11

it was from a Simpson's episode (thus the whole Mr Burns thing), but I don't want to look for the episode guide to find the exact phrasing of the quote.

ps.. lasy => lazy.

"...in the northern Indian city of Lucknow..."

Hehe, he is in Lucknow.



What would have been a better story is if he gasped and came back to life AFTER the cremation.
 
2002-01-15 01:54:39 PM  
That's the last time I take a nap in a coffin at a government hospital...
 
2002-01-15 02:15:55 PM  
Yeah webfiend, i hear you. I still doubt it though.
 
2002-01-15 03:48:25 PM  
This guy is going to have identity problems for the rest of his life.

"Let's see. According to this, you died five years ago."
"Does it look like I'm dead?"
 
2002-01-15 04:22:52 PM  
Dead man wakes just before he bakes'
 
2002-01-15 04:51:41 PM  
That's not an apostraphe, it's an end-quote. The open-quote didn't show up.

Dang farking filters.
 
2002-01-15 05:55:52 PM  
"chief medical officer HP Kumar will begin a thorough inquiry."

Howard Philip Kumar maybe ? scary...
 
2002-01-15 07:12:15 PM  
Well We just found another immortal
 
2002-01-15 10:20:52 PM  
ZOOOOOMBBIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS

Wulph: It only sucks in India. If gov't health care was in the US, it'd kick ass for sure.
