A Degree from,"University" is actually more certificate of subhumanism, and less a statement of ignorance than you might think. Though they were dumb enough to at one time believe the false validity, they did realize it at some point to be a hoax...and graduated anyway... ... because of a lack of Humanism. If they fail to die/getthemselveskilled ,They eventually get over the Stupidity, but they're never able to get over the lack of thumbs... Which makes a degree all the more necessary/comforting as a blanket to guard against reality with. But that's old news.

When my dad died, I needed a lot of death certificates in order to get his life insurance money and also to put money in their joint accounts to my mom. That Process took so long that my mom couldn’t use any of it to pay for the funeral. Oh and a death certificate was needed to transfer his bonds to my mom.

Murica hands over essential tasks such as security in countries they recently invaded, death investigations, or the guarding of criminals in prisons to private companies ... and then acts all surprised when chaos ensues. The whole system, from courts to taxation to health to schools to ... just fill in anything ... looks like something an eight-year-old with a severe case of ADS has designed. Pathetic.

this is a relic of the English system where the coroner was a legal person, or the most important person in town, and the doctor's medical information was part of what was submitted to the coroner - along with police evidence. There was also a jury. This was certainly the system still into the 1940s.

One thing to remember about death is that it's not the opposite of life. The opposite of death is birth and life is the time between birth and death.

The weird and wonderful thing about these clips, they’re educational, they’re funny as hell, and I always somehow forget this is a television production and not a UKvid show, then fucking glen close shows up and I’m like “WOAH HOW DID HE GET THAT ACTRESS” when she literally is cast in like two HBO shows

Tim Tucker

@jack Maher All of that may be true but it's irrelevant and only used by whites to find a reason to justify the cop for killing an arrestee. Nothing there is worthy of suspending the criminal law system of innocent until proven guilty. The cop cannot be judge, jury and executioner no matter what the suspect has done. Sure maybe he wasn't a nice guy but he was an American and deserved equal treatment under the Law. His death was a murder.

in arkansas most coroners run for the job so they can get kickbacks from funeral homes. The coroner decides where the body goes.
Feist77 22 дні тому
@Deb Schwer The family decides where to hold the funeral, but not usually where the body is first stored. That way they have to contact the funeral home where the body was sent to make arrangement and because of this they normally get the families business. More often than not.
