Man in his thirties comes back from the dead on Easter Sunday. Oh oh. I'm off to confession, pronto.

"coming back" from the dead, and resurrection (in the Christian sense), are not the same thing at all. those who "come back" from the dead eventually die again. i'm just sayin'...

Not to mention that they are actually suppossed to die in the first place. This guy had no fork stuck in him to make sure he was done.

What the fuck?

In August another north Dublin hospital, Beaumont, shipped the body of a dead English tourist back to England β€” with a bag of somebody else's organs stitched up inside his body.

That Irish Examiner story sounds like it was written by Brass Eye's Ted Maul: "Medics have been left baffled after a hospital patient pronounced dead on Easter Sunday was dramatically later found to be alive."

Even the people quoted are badly written! "It’s an internal investigation led by people at the very senior end and naturally there will be clinical people leading it and senior management are also across the whole issue."

Other than that, cool story.

Easter Sunday? Old news.

Lazy med staff declares patient dead. Patient turns out not to be dead. Yawn.

Charles Bukowski noted that Lazarus was the most unfortunate man in history: the only one to die twice.

The Essenes could bring the recently deceased back to life also. They fell out of favor with the Elohim after the time of Christ because they continued to worship and cultivate their own power rather than the Divnie Love revelation brought by the Prophet Jesus.

Nah, that's just how we talk.

My nephew's cat, Easter Egg (given to him on Easter morning), died on Good Friday (17 years later).

I was wondering about that as well strawberryviagra. I mean, how did they find that out?

In unrelated news, there's about to be a national election in Ireland, and polls say the near-comedic crapness of all the public services isn't something the voters are finding very funny.

So obviously the government parties are talking exclusively about stamp duty.

Imagine a place where the whole country is run at every level by parties whose disagreements on all substantial issues are nanoscopic, where all the politicians have the calibre of student council members at the college where dumb people go, where the mechanics of government are roughly as capable as those of the erstwhile East Germany, and where the government actually rubs your nose in it every day by -- for example -- giving the job of Minister for Health to a clinically obese moron. That'll be where I live.

Then his live condition was discovered.

That has to be the best sentence I've read all week.

Morgue officials found him, apparently awake and alert, in his bed when they arrived hours later to collect the body.

The Mater β€” which suffers from chronic overcrowding and, in recent weeks, work stoppages by nurses demanding more pay for fewer working hours β€” said it had formed a committee to investigate what went wrong and to ensure it never happened again.
Recovery will be on our terms, or not at all!
