strange news of the day
if you were considering dying, i would encourage you to check out your local municipality's laws first: you could be breaking the law and facing some sever consequences!
French Mayor Bans Villagers From Dying
The mayor of a village in south west France has banned residents from dying.
And Gerard Lalanne has threatened "severe" punishment for anyone who disobeys.
The mayor issued the unusual edict when it became clear that there was no room left in the overcrowded village graveyard in Sarpourenx in the Bordeaux region.
In an ordinance posted in the council offices, Mayor Lalanne told the 260 residents that "all persons not having a plot in the cemetery and wishing to be buried in Sarpourenx are forbidden from dying in the parish".
It added: "Offenders will be severely punished."
