Death is a Complete Uber Bitch
So it isn't that much different than being alive, now is it? No more mother-in-law weekend stay at your house. So death is a far plus. However, once dead, it can be a bit differcult to get back to a living state. You will need a team of doctors and a big amount of electricity. I always find that preparation is the key; try to die in a hospital or failing that, call an ambulance before to be on the safer side. Another option would be to call an ambulance near a power station to provide electricity.
Beliefs about being dead
Here's a little rundown:
- Drunk people
- believe that you will never die unless you're already dead and OMG IS THAT THOMAS EDISON? duuuuude, I knew he was a chick!
- believe that death is the end of your existence (something to look forward to, huh?) We all end off that way. If you're an Atheist you can feel superior because your group knows and the rest don't.
- Super Adventure Club
- believe that they will live forever (if they molest children) until they are hit by a train.
- believe that we are predestined to die, so no use to keep living, so killing yourself would get you to heaven much quicker.
- believe that those who worship the Pope go to heaven, while everyone else goes to either purgatory or hell, based on a coin toss.
- believe that if you die while carrying the Torah, you have embarrassed your family in front of the entire congregation and ten generations of your descendants must fast for 314 days out of every year.
- thinks that, if you refuse to join him, you will DIE!!!
- Andy Warhol
- doesn't (didn't) believe in death, because you're not around to know that it's happened, and he isn't (wasn't) ready for it...oh wait, he's (was) a strict Rutheran Catholic despite him having done cocaine, heroine, and gay sex...thank God for Solanas (sorry, that wasn't meant to be homophobic).
- believe that if you die of AIDS, you'll hang out with Freddie Mercury, and that if you don't, you'll have to put up with that one guy they got to play bass.
- believe the exact opposite of whatever the Catholics believe.
- believe that if you believe you're going to heaven, you do, but if you don't, you're most definitely going to hell, unless you believe you're going to hell, in which case you may actually end up going to heaven. Either way, they're pretty angry about the whole matter, and it's all the Pope's fault.
- are pretty laid back about it all, but are extremely gay and hostile to animals.
- believe that if you're naughty, you are reincarnated into some obscure animal, such as a cockroach, or if you're lucky, a cow (Fire up the grill!).
- believe whatever the hell R. C. Sproul says
- Followers of Jeffrey Dahmer
- either believe they'll go to heaven, no matter HOW many people they've eaten, so long as they're baptized or that there's nothing after life meaning they better kill, torture, rape, and make as many zombies as they can.
- believe that they become gods when they die, and live on some star constellation nobody has ever heard of.
- UFO Cults
- believe that our spirit ascends to live with the aliens on the UFOs (Or comet passing by)...
- think they're going to hell to "party" with Satan (aren't they in for a nasty surprise!).
- think that it's the end of an organism, a natural process (while the other organisms exist) doesn't matter how you are dead.
- Fanatical Cultists
- believe that during your life, a computer counts your sins, and if you sin too much, you and your perfect mate will not be cloned when the aliens establish a new world order.
- Some Crazy Platonist Guy
- thinks that only your senses die, but your awareness stays.
- Pot-smoking New Age followers
- believe we go live with Mother Earth (depending on how we treat the environment).
- Unitarian Universalists
- just plain don't know what to believe.
- believe that death is just like being asleep forever, and hence can't wait for it.
- don't believe in death and think that man is immortal. Stupid, ri
- believe that when you die you simply respawn.
- believe that they become one of their favorite band's instruments. (if its it's the singer..your you're the vocal cords) sounds fun :)
Meanwhile, in the Land of the Living
Your body is sitting there, rotting and stinking in your best clothes (while your blood-alcohol level is way over the driving limit, thanks to embalming) in some god-forsaken hole in the ground, while your "best friends" and "closest relatives" are pawing through your possessions.....
(And they will enjoy it, too)
