I sure most have heard the legend about the guy who died and wasn't discovered till weeks(sometimes years) later.

I guess this poor guy never heard of it. He died in 1984! and was only discovered recently.

That is truly sad. Honestly, though... and not to be tacky, but you'd think the smell would eventually alert people to the problem. I mean, the article stated this man had a neighbor.

I remember a few months ago, a friend of mine lived in a neighborhood consisting of houses converted into upstairs/downstairs apartments. We were all sitting outside her house one night wondering what this smell was that we were all crinkling our noses at. Not to mention the spirit activity she had going on in her house that week. A week later, the downstairs tenet of the house next to her finall reported the smell to their landlord and it turns out the old man upstairs had died... been dead three weeks. Again, a case of no one notifying the police. It's sad... but, oddly enough, these things DO happen.

There is that, but it makes you wonder who was at his funeral?

I don't have that many friends in the real world (whole lotta aquaintances but few close friends), but at least I would be mourned by the Village.

I didn't lose my mind - I have it backed up on a disk ... somewhere

Sadly in this day and age where web communication takes prioity over personal interaction, I'm guessing it's a lot easier thing to go unnoticed now.

I often worry about who would let my online friends know if I passed unexpectedly...

Yosei...thanks for reminding me of that thought! I have the same worry about one of my on-line friends, he only comes on every couple weeks...but haven't heard from him since mid april(via e-mail). In fact no one that I know he knows, they don't even know where he's been.
