  1. I also don’t see any arms on that last one…a pillow…but no arms…is it just my bad eyesight? I can’t believe I stared at that pic so long….

  2. Actually, I feel bad for the girl whose grandma died on Thanksgiving. I had the same thing happen a few years back when I was away at college. I was planning on going home and spending Thanksgiving with my friends, and when my mom picked me up, she said, “We’re not going home, your grandpa died and we’re going to his funeral.” Surprise!

    So, just because he’s black, he must be gangster?
    That: my anonymous friends is called racial profiling.

    Also, am I the only one that has no problem with the corpse pic? Maybe it’s my lack of religion talking, but; corpses aren’t sacred..

    It’s a twisted irony that bodies are often shown more respect in death than in life. That photo is a hell if a lot classier than a lot of live photos.

  4. I don’t have a problem with the corpse pic. But then I’m an atheist, and all I see is a mound of rotting flesh because it stopped being the person it was when it died. I don’t believe that corpses are sacred and think cemeteries are nothing but a waste of perfectly good land. Cremate us all, I say!

    I actually dated a guy once whose father would take pictures at funerals and then send the pictures to the family. They were actually always grateful for them, to have a record of the moment and of who was there. Strange, but true. I think he only took pictures of the casket if it was closed, though. It would certainly be creepy to just get pictures of your dead relative in the mail one day.

  5. I’m an atheist too, Whisperia, but the idea that the body ceases to be the person at death actually implies a soul.

  6. @goatunit – Might want to rethink that one for a moment. The fact my computer stops working when the motherboard conks out doesn’t mean that the operating system continues to function on some alternative plane of existence. Death is a critical hardware failure; there’s no reason (absence evidence of the contrary) to imagine the software is working ‘somewhere else’ when the hardware is kaput.

  7. Worse than using Facebook as the forum to tell people someone you know has died is when your friends and family use Facebook to “console” you. When my grandpa died, I had more people post to my wall saying sorry than called me. Thanks, guys.

  8. Duncan, I cannot believe you just compared humans to you computer…. computers are way smarter.

  9. I finally had to join so I could comment… that last one reminds me of Harry Potter. ONLY because of the scarf, and I actually do post pics of people mostly as memorial, so yeah I’m weird like the pictures above except I don’t think I added the pic of my grandpa in the casket… only my grandma cleaning the stain on the cloth with a cleaner pen teehee

    The last one would be so much better if that was a Harry Potter scarf.

    Or the ridiculously long Doctor Who/Tom Baker scarf.

    Bonus points if he’d regenerated during the funeral.

    *geeks out a little*

    (I wonder if they’ll ever have a black Doctor…)

    Okay. The guy’s wearing a light blue dress shirt, a sweater vest, and a scarf. For whatever reason, the shirt sleeve on the left side (facing the screen) is just poofier than the one on the right. Then, the last dark stripe on the scarf lines up with the bottom of the sweater vest, and the next red stripe is contrasting with the khaki slacks he’s wearing.

    I’m at work, so I just paid to sit here and stare at the picture long enough to figure out his wardrobe. How sad is that?

  12. @sraosa, the dr is a timelord, unlike earth, Gallifrey knew only one skin colour as it only had one race, timelords… sad but true…. thus the answer being no….

  13. The second one. Couldn’t you just have send him a private message? Noooo, had to pick a happy status to say that someone’s dead and their memorial is next weekend. When you’re planning to have fun.
