Never forget that only the weak fish swim with the stream, and a lie travels half way around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes

There's no shocking images allowed on here, Chooky!
If you google, "dead guy standing"... a serious story of a guy who wanted to be standing up at his own wake is easily found.. I dont know why but that story does give me the creeps... nothing scary is to be seen, its just...I dunno...weird..
It's not the depth of the rabbit hole that bugs me... It's all the rabbit poop you stumble over on your way down...
“It's easier to fool people - than to convince them that they have been fooled.” Mark Twain
I once found a young man standing up dead - on one leg.
I was waiting on a bus at the intercity bus station at Amsterdam Central Station a number (8?) of years ago. It was winter and it was cold and it was an afternoon. I noticed someone standing about five meters away, leaning on the upper bar of a railing and looking at the water in the canal below. I did not think anything about it. Time passed. People arrived, got on busses and left. Then I noticed that this person had not moved. He was still in the same position, leaning with his chest on the upper bar of the fence. I started to pay attention. He still did not move. Then I approached him, studied him, spoke to him. He did neither respond nor react. Though both feet touched the ground, he was actually standing on his left foot only. I started to feel creeped out. I touched him. No response. His eyes were open, looking at the water below. I touched him more strongly, felt his backbone. Still no response. Other people started to pay attention. A bus came in. I alerted the driver. I told him that I thought that the young man was dead. He closed and took out his money tray, and got out of the bus and approached, spoke to and studied and touched the young man. My bus came in and I got on, so I do not know what else occurred - but I do am convinced that that young man, who had been standing there on one leg in plain view for who knows how long while countless people passed him by as they waited and got on or off their busses, had been very dead during all that time, maybe even since the previous night.
