    It wasn't zombies who left them...

    I'm wondering if there's one labeled A.B. Normal... or if maybe a Marty Feldman looking fellow was in the area.

      This is Governeur, NY. Not New York City.

      The article makes it easy to not see that this is upstate New York. Closer to Canada than New York City.

        Ah, near Canada. Maybe that explains it?

    I know the feeling

    After a wisdom tooth extraction that went wrong I took the maximum dose of Paracetamol for a week.

    The passing railway trains would have been a welcome distraction.

    I had to wean myself off the pills with beer*, the withdrawal was seriously bad.

    A lawyer questioning a doctor during a trial:

    Q: "Doctor, before you performed the autopsy, did you check for a pulse?"

    A: "No."

    Q: "Did you check for blood pressure?"

    A: "No."

    Q: "Did you check for breathing?"

    A: "No."

    Q: "So, then, it is possible that the patient was alive when you began the autopsy?"

    A: "No."

    Q: "How can you be so sure, doctor?"

    A: "Because his brain was sitting on my desk in a jar."

    Q: "But could the patient have still been alive nevertheless?"

    A: "It is possible that he could have been alive and practicing law somewhere."
