    I've done a few CASSIMs involving these people and their ilk, about as close as you can get to the real thing in a practice, and very good value for those that need it

    This is all getting rather gruesome. We should all remember that a popular local character has died and try to think how this situation could be avoided in future.

    One verse then a couple of breaths isn't it. No need to count.

    Well, since you ask, the worst story went "The undertakers hadn't arrived when the police finished, so we decided to move the body off the line ourselves. I grabbed the hands and was dragging the torso to one side when it seemed to get lighter. I looked down and all his intestines had fallen out."

    Actually, that's very far from being the worst story, but I don't even want to think about the worst story.

    I used to work in a lab which tested joint prostheses. We had a freezer full of bits of people. I felt very queasy the first time I saw one in the test rig, but after a while it became routine. Human meat looks much the same as any other.
