Trueland

Have you ever heard of Trueland? 

My friend told me that over there, the real estate companies have bought land around the graveyards and that they are selling people their future graves for cheaper than the government’s prices. This is no news, but since the population of Trueland is very high, they have decided to make graves vertical. People now can die standing. I have googled it, it is a true story. The company is called “Smart solutions” and their slogan is “If you ever fall, then do so standing”/ ”We will never let you fall in any way but standing”.

Preservatives 

If you eat a lot of food with preservatives, like canned tuna for example, when you die your corpse will take a longer time to decompose, said my religious friend.

A Flight In The Wrong Direction 

Alec was very careful with the heater. Since he was very little, he wouldn’t go to bed if the heater was on unless he put a cup of water next to it, just to make sure that water would evaporate from the cup, and not from his body. 

In February 2020, Alec was feeling very depressed by the winter of the north, he did not leave his room for two weeks. On Thursday, before going to bed Alec put a cup of water above the heater. Alec had forgotten to check on it for a few days. On Sunday Alec started getting tired, he blamed it on Vitamin D. On Monday Alec got dizzy, very very dizzy, he had to call the doctor. 

Alec fainted. 

On Wednesday Alec woke up, the ceiling and the Guru standing above him were spinning. 

“When will all of this end?” Alec asked.

“The water in your ears dried out, it gave you vertigo, but don’t worry son, you are not the first person who comes to India to regain balance.”
