Bureaucracy of the Damned
Municipal regulations normally ban anything from smoking in public places to parking in certain zones.Well, hopefully if they repealed death, a repeal of taxes can't be far behind.
But officials in the Brazilian town of Biritiba Mirim, 70km (45 miles) east of Sao Paulo, have gone far beyond that.
They plan to prohibit residents from dying because the local cemetery has reached full capacity. [emphasis mine]
For the few Pittsburgh readers we may have, rest assured, your lack of zombie preparedness will presumably keep your city from passing a similar ordinance.
