Allan's Perspective is not recommended for the politically correct, or the overly religious! (Some people have opinions, and some have convictions ..., what we offer is Perspective!)

My wife is right, I am anal retentive...., so now I keep a can of WD-40 next to the toilet! (Sometimes I feel like I'm just a bobble-head on the highway of life!)

The Dead Files!

Jesus wasn't the only one raised from the dead, kids!


Another entry for the not-dead-yet files: A man who had been pronounced dead in Milwaukee began moving around as a medical team was preparing to take him to the morgue, reports WISN. The strange tale of 46-year-old Thomas Sancomb began Tuesday when his worried girlfriend called 911 because she couldn't reach him. A crew from the Fire Department got into his apartment and found him collapsed near the foot of his bed, "cold to the touch and in rigor." He seemed so clearly dead that they didn't try to resuscitate, reports the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. An investigator from the medical examiner's office showed up, and Sancomb was pronounced dead. Authorities called his brother with the news.
At that point, a crew from the medical examiner's office arrived to take the body to the morgue when, lo and behold, Sancomb had "spontaneous respirations" and started moving his limbs, reports AP. Paramedics then returned to the scene and took him to the hospital instead of the morgue. His brother says Sancomb is doing better every day, but didn't go into detail. As for the blown medical call: "We're doing an internal investigation to make sure that everything we did followed protocol," says an assistant fire chief. "It's an active investigation, so I can't comment in detail."

Cremains wash up on Scotland shoreline and you won't believe where they came from: 
INVERNESS, Scotland —
You never know what's floating in the water when you're swimming in the ocean or in lakes.
A woman swimming near Inverness, Scotland found a bag on the shoreline, filled with gray powder. 
It turned out to be a bag of cremains and the bag had a metal tag that said "Central Michigan Crematory Battle Creek MI." It also had a five-digit identification number, The Detroit Free Press reported.
Finally, she contacted the Battle Creek Enquirer to help get in touch with the crematory.
The crematory knows who the ashes belong to, but has no idea how they got from Michigan to Scotland, but says it happens a couple of times a year.
Crematory officials said it is the funeral home that handled the services to notify the family that the cremains were found, the Battle Creek Enquirer reported.

Well kids, we told you yesterday there was going to be trouble .........., AND THERE WAS!
A Cleveland police officer was found not guilty on Saturday in the shooting deaths of an unarmed black man and a woman after a high-speed car chase in 2012, one in a series of cases that have raised questions over police conduct and race relations in the United States.
Soon after the verdict, a small crowd of demonstrators took to the streets chanting "No justice, no peace," with protests becoming larger and more unruly. Police said on Twitter there was an incident with a large crowd with people spraying others with pepper spray.

Islamic State fighters have executed at least 400 people in Palmyra since capturing the ancient Syrian city four days ago, Syrian state media said on Sunday.
It was not immediately possible to verify the account, but it was consistent with reports by activists that the Islamist fighters had carried out executions since capturing the city from government troops.
The militants seized the city of 50,000 people, site of some of the world's most extensive and best preserved ancient Roman ruins, on Wednesday, days after also capturing the city of Ramadi in neighboring Iraq.
"The terrorists have killed more than 400 people.. and mutilated their bodies, under the pretext that they cooperated with the government and did not follow orders," Syria's state news agency said, citing residents inside the city.
It added that dozens of those killed were state employees, including the head of nursing department at the hospital and all her family members.

On the flip side of the "Dead Files," is the story about an older woman in Germany who had quadruplets!
Annegret Raunigk, A 65-year-old teacher from Berlin has given birth to quadruplets after a pregnancy that was widely criticized by medical professionals because of her age, RTL television said Saturday.
A spokeswoman for RTL said the babies stood a strong chance of survival but possible complications couldn't yet be ruled out, because they were born in the 26th week of pregnancy. Their mother was doing well, the spokeswoman said.
NOW HERE'S THE KICKER, FOLKS: Raunigk already had 13 children ranging in age from nine to 44, from five fathers.
She told Germany's Bild newspaper last month that she decided to become pregnant again because her nine-year-old daughter wanted a younger sibling. She also has seven grandchildren.
(Raunigk travelled abroad to have donated, fertilized eggs implanted — a procedure that is illegal in Germany.)

OK folks, I know this last one is not part of the "Dead Files" either, but it's strange enough that I had to include it!!!!


Police officers in Labrador West charged a 32-year-old man with impaired driving early Saturday morning — but he wasn't driving the vehicle.
The Royal Newfoundland Constabulary pulled over the vehicle in Labrador City near a trailer court around 3:20 a.m.
Police determined the driver was operating with a Class 5 learner's permit, but the accompanying driver was impaired by alcohol.
That person is considered to be in care and control of a vehicle, when a learner's permit driver is operating a vehicle.
In addition to the impaired charge, the man was issued a driving suspension and released to appear in provincial court at a later date.
