Unlimited Afterlife Minutes

An article in The Australian details how increasingly, deceased Irish people are taking their cell phones with them to the grave.


In Victorian times, some people were so terrified that they would be buried alive, they were sometimes interred with a string around their finger, which extended through the coffin, up through the soil, and connected to a bell above the grave. Watchmen were employed to listen for the sounds of the bells in graveyards, signifying that a recently arrived resident was not quite dead yet.

Perhaps this is the modern equivalent. But which carriers could ever guarantee that one could get a signal through a casket and six feet of soil?
