In the past year, over 800,000 Americans have died. Despite millions of dollars of research, death continues to be our nation's number one killer. Although, so far there's no known treatment for death's crippling effects, still everyone can acquaint himself with the three early warning signs of death: one, rigor mortis; two, a rotting smell; three, occasional drowsiness. It is also important to know what to do you when you die. 1) Don't try to drive a car. 2) Do not operate heavy machinery. 3) Do not talk. -Henry Gibson: Himself (segment "United Appeal for the Dead "), The Kentucky Fried Movie
