Life and Death

What is God compared to Government? A mere pretender. Reuters reports:

Red tape is preventing a Polish man from returning from the dead.

Piotr Kucy, 38 and from the city of Polkowice in southwest Poland, was wrongly identified by authorities last August as a drowned man, only to show up a few days after his own funeral.

Despite pointing out the fact that he was alive to government officials, Kucy still remains dead in official records, stopping him from working and paying social insurance.


[A] registry office official was adamant about the situation. “This citizen does not exist,” she told the paper.

The report does mention that Kucy does not have to pay taxes, which I suppose is as close to heaven as one can get.
