The idea is to die young as late as possible.
Michael Trei at dvice.com (http://dvice.com/archives/author/michael_trei) reports that the city of Redditch in UK will use crematorium exhaust to heat up nearby town pool (full article at http://dvice.com/archives/2011/01/crematorium-hea.php).
What makes a difference between human beings and animals (not all kinds of) is the cult of deads.
I cannot understand how people can imagine to use the heat of a crematorium as a source of hot water.
I am and always will be a fan of capitalissm and free economy, but I think that some principles and behaviours should be respected and some borders not crossed.
Where are we going to go if we loose also the basics in favour of money?

John Herrman at Gizmodo (http://gizmodo.com/people/melvinjunko/posts/) writes a good article explaining why batteries come to an end (full article at http://gizmodo.com/5681005/giz-explains-why-batteries-die).
Worth a read.
Chris Matyszczyk at Cnet (http://www.cnet.com/profile/ChrisMatyszczyk/) and Jesus Diaz at Gizmodo report that Google streetview service launched in Brasil captured two distinct dead bodies and that images were removed by Google (full article at http://news.cnet.com/8301-17852_3-20018320-71.html?part=rss&subj=news&tag=2547-1_3-0-20 and at http://gizmodo.com/5656497/murder-captured-by-google-street-view-car).
I’m not surprised of cams having captured this sad moments. Is like having a lot of people watching for you and sometimes you get good things, someother you don’t.
On the other side I think that is quite impossible to censor this images before going live.

When you breathe you inspire. When you do not breathe you expire.
