    I just attended the funeral of my girlfriend's father, it would've been cool if they discovered he was still alive.

    But that would be kind of difficult considering he was cremated.
    Kinda difficult.

    That's why lotta places have a tradition of waiting a couple days before burying someone. Y'know, if they start smelling, they're definitely dead
    I think it's according to Islamic tradition to have the body buried as soon as possible.

    Yep, that's why Bin Laden was thrown into the ocean ASAP.

    If you die in war yes.

    But in a normal death you have to clean the corpse and do things like that.

    Even so, it's a much quicker burial than traditional Christian funeral rites.

    What does Twilight have to do with this

    Also, I've heard of a case that happened here in Portugal, 80 years ago or so, a guy woke up in the middle of his funeral. After that, he went to fight the Colonial War, he "died" in an accident and was presumed definitly dead. He came up with some gimmicks to return to Portugal, when he returned home, his entire family fainted. I don't know if this is true, but it's still an awesome story nonetheless.

    I wonder if the family would still have to pay for the funeral when, y'know, the guy actually dies.

    Edited:

    I mean, shouldn't he at least get a discount?
