A High Tolerance for ReRuns

Mummified body found in front of blaring TV

NEW YORK (Reuters) -- Police called to a Long Island man's house discovered the mummified remains of the resident, dead for more than a year, sitting in front of a blaring television set.
Officials could not explain why the electricity had not been turned off, considering Ricardo had not been heard from since December 2005.

I have a few random thoughts after reading this article.

First, that's a really reliable TV. Apparently, it's been running at high volume for over a year without interruption.

Second, you don't have to pay your power bill.

Third, you don't have to pay your property tax.

Fourth, neighbors will mind their own buisness.

I'm not sure if this is a good way to go or not. On one hand, nobody seems to have missed the guy. On the other hand, though, it seems like he went in a rather relaxed manner. But he must have sat through a lot of reruns and infomercials.
