Don't die here: it's illegal

It sounds ridiculous but there are still places in the world in which it is illegal to die. While in the past such laws were maintained on religious grounds modern no-death laws usually relate to a shortage of cemetery space.
Prohibition of death is a political social phenomenon and taboo in which a law is passed stating that it is illegal to die, usually specifically in a certain political division or in a specific building.

So I guess the only place were we could die is in our own homes or a hospitals? Or maybe we could pull a Dr. Who and keep on transfering to new bodies?

Do you think they have a police squad that are designated to investigate "illegal deaths" and if so, can you imagine if they had found some body about to die....."HEY YOU!!!! YOU BETTER NOT DIE HERE OR WE WILL EXECUTE YOU!!!" HAHA

What could these derelicts possibly do to the dead person as punishment? Nothing. They go after the next of kin.

aparently it's illegal to have a heart attack in the houses of parliment Why not? If Parliment and the House of Lords are like our Congress, they cause enough headaches, heartaches and pains in the nether region to cause a multitude of heart attacks. Why keep something in your body that can attack you?

Try this one on death. In the late 1990's the Michigan State Department of Vital Statistics put out a notice that anyone wanting a copy of his/her Death Certificate had to file for the certificate two weeks in advance of the death. Can we say dumb de' dumb, dumb, DUMB!!] :wacko:
