Staff at a Mississippi funeral parlour received the shock of their lives when they unzipped a body bag to prepare the corpse for embalming: the man inside was still alive, trying to kick his way out.
A coroner had pronounced Walter Williams dead hours earlier when he had been unable to find a pulse. Mr Williams was transported to the Porters and Sons Funeral Home in Lexington, Mississippi. However, a few hours later, when workers were about to prepare his corpse, they noticed Mr Williams moving in his body bag.
“He was not dead, long story short,” funeral home manager Byron Porter told local television station WAPT, noting that he had never seen anything like it before.
Mr Williams’ daughter, Martha Lewis, said: “I don’t know how much longer he’s going to grace us and bless us with his presence, but hallelujah, we thank him right now, right now!”
The coroner now believes the 78-year-old’s pacemaker stopped working for a while but then restarted. Mr Williams is now being treated in hospital.

Australia’s Attorney General, Senator George Brandis has foreshadowed serious changes to the nations copyright laws.
Senator Brandis says one move he’s considering is asking internet service providers – ISPs – to issue warnings to customers.
Australians are among the worst offenders when it comes to illegal downloads, Senator Brandis is also apparently considering asking ISPs to block sites where content can be illegally downloaded.
Copyright holders like film and television and music studios have long argued that it is ISPs role to prevent internet users from illegally downloading their content.
The glitch in the plan might be a landmark High Court ruling in 2012, where the court found service provider iiNet wasn’t responsible for its customers’ illegal activities :: Read the full article »»»»

Porn on Google Glass has been well written about, at first thought it’s a brilliant idea, however Google – and it’s prude policy – is making nudity on Glass harder than purveyors of porn would like.
A UK based App developer says he’s created the first Google Glass App designed for sex, NO, not porn, sex.
Sex with Glass purports to let partners share their point of view with each other, allowing “you see two different perspectives, seamlessly, changing the way you experience sex”.
The idea is that both bedroom buddies wear Glass during their fleshy encounter, the App sends a live video feed to the other person’s display upon command, “OK, Glass, it’s time”, allowing them to see what you see in real time, to stop the live feed you simply utter the words, “OK, Glass, pull out”.
Unfortunately, according to the empathetic developer “No one wants the App in their store, not Google, nor Apple :: Read the full article »»»»

A Chinese court has sentenced one of China’s most prominent rights advocates to four years in prison after he campaigned for the rights of children from rural areas to be educated in cities and for officials to disclose their assets.
The Beijing Number 1 intermediate people’s court found Xu Zhiyong guilty of “gathering a crowd to disturb public order”, the court said on its official microblog. Xu was tried on Wednesday.
Xu’s jailing will send a stark warning to activists that the Chinese Communist Party will crush any challenge to its rule, especially from those who seek to organise campaigns.
It also diminishes hopes for meaningful political change, even as China pledges to embark on economic reforms :: Read the full article »»»»
