There used to be a joke about union shops barring the removal copses from the factory floor until payday.
On payday, the Supervisor was required to wave a paycheck in front of the "corpse". If the "corpse" reached for the check, then the supervisor was required to wait until the next payday and to perform the same exercise.
In reaching for the Paycheck, the corpse demonstrated conclusively that there was a sign of life and that the union member was in fact alive and still working.
I am not of the mind that a man is either of science or of religion. At his best and his worst, man exists in the misty glimmering where the falling angel meets the rising ape. That he chooses a direction from that point defines him as human.

"Better to be dead and cool, than alive and uncool."
