Aye, a close acquaintance is a Sci Fi Writer.<br>I suggested he use that as a premise for a novella.<br>Kind of a "Monster In the Machine" thing;<br>...A Convicted/Executed Murderer, that inhabits <br>Cyber-Space using students etc that inadvertently<br>"summon" up Jernigan's spirit whenever they do <br>a search for, and peruse/use the images of his body <br>that no longer exists in the real world.<br><br>I guess the thought occurred to me about the time <br>that I was perusing the images.....mmmm...yeah... "creepy"<br><br>I think the part that creeped me out was the manner <br>by which the process was preformed over a relatively<br>long period of time. <br><br>Milled to raw hamburger a millimeter at a time, and<br>dripping down the walls while some jagoff takes pictures, <br>wouldn't be my personal preference of "what to do with"!<br><br><br>
There was an old episode of Rod Serling's Night Gallery where a surgeon teaching at a local medical school took cadavers from these 2 shady characters - sight unseen and No questions asked. The setting was in the late 1800s. He suspected they were either stealing them or killing people to get the bounty he paid, but he was one cold hearted SOB and didn't care!<br><br>A local lady's husband came up missing and his body was sold to the Dr by the 2 creepy guys and put in the Dr's lab. The police started snooping around the med school so the Dr told these 2 creeps to get him another body very quickly so he could satisfy the inspector when he came, that he'd never seen this lady's husband. They produced one 20 minutes later and the Dr took it (under sheets) sight unseen and No questions asked.<br><br>As he begn to lecture, the police inspector entered his lab and asked about the lady's husband and he cockily denied he'd never seen him. So the Inspector asked to see the body he was going to dissect that night for class and the Dr agreeed. When he pulled back the sheet back, there was his fiancee dead as a door nail on the gurney. The expression of horror on his face ! <br><br>sorry for the long story but it was a neat episode ! a Sterling "classic" !! <br><br>David (OFI)
LOL Luckily, I don't "creep-out" easily.<br><br>For one thing, I come from a family of morticians<br>(a very respectable trade in Alabama)<br>For another, I live directly across the street from<br>the town cemetery. I park my vehicle less than <br>5 ft from "my closest neighbor" every day (& night)<br><br><br><br>
Never made it yesterday. She stayed up all night to watch some silly movie marathon and I couldn't wake her up with a canon. Today was the final BTS shopping trip (got her an iPod Nano), and tomorrow we're taking a ride to the Cape. So I guess I'll try again over the weekend.<br><br>
LOL It used to freak me out a bit (when I was like 5 y.o.)<br>that my favorite Uncle used to have caskets in his basement.<br><br>But in reality, living across from the Graveyard only gave me <br>"the heebie-jeebies" once in the 12 years that I've lived here, <br>and that was most likely baseless, considering that there was<br>nothing or no one there that I could actually see... still I couldn't<br>get across the street fast enough to suit me, nor get my key in <br>the lock soon enough for my liking that night.<br><br>My beaufriend refuses to go into graveyards unless it's for a funeral.<br>I finally asked him why, and he gave an answer that's stayed with <br>me ever since. He said; "Think of going to Yankee Stadium. Imagine<br>it's full of people. If you closed your eyes... even if no one made a <br>sound... you'd still be aware that you were surrounded by people.<br>That's how I feel when I'm in a cemetery."<br><br>That night, I sensed a presence, even though there was no one there.<br><br><br><br>
well at least they woun't be noisy ones with screaming kids !!<br><br><br>well I hope not, for your sake !! <br><br><br>Your neighbors are a bunch of "stiffs" !! <br><br>(no offense to the 'dead')<br><br>David (OFI)<br>
<blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p>well at least they won't be noisy ones with screaming kids !!<p><hr></blockquote><p><br>no, no screaming kids<br>but today there was Rifle Fire & Bagpipes <br>...that means another policemen had been killed. <br><br>.<br><br>
