Raising The Dead

Young FrankensteinI read today that a Pakastani man is wanted for digging up the corpse of his father in an attempt to revive him.  It's not like the father had been dead for two years… Oh wait, he was.  What were you thinking Abdul?  I can see, and possibly justify a couple days, but two years.  This isn't a case of, "I forgot to get the milk, better go pick it up."  This is more like, "Whatever happened to that A-Team Matchbox Car we had?"

There are three things about this story that intrigue me. 

One, I imagine Abdul sitting at home when he has a light bulb moment, "I've got it! Maybe, just maybe if I… He'll come back to life!"  I can only assume that his plan didn't involve the regeneration of skin and muscle tissue.  Those were merely obstacles to be tackled if the initial test worked.

The second part that makes me laugh is the fact that Abdul went through the trouble to steal an ambulance because his idea was that good.  Seriously though, he had potentially discovered the key to restoring life.  He couldn't simply drive down to the cemetary in a Mazda.  This was much bigger. 

And finally, I wish I could have been there when his extravagant plan failed.  "Son of a… Well, I guess that didn't work.  Was the chicken not fresh enough?  Or should I have used Kosher salt.  Ugh! Too many variables!  Curse you creator!"  

He also left the corpse in his bedroom for 12 hours, which makes me wonder if he was pacing back and forth in the room frantically searching for another solution.   

Oh, and did I mention that he kidnapped a "vagabond" that slept in the cemetary and proceeded to lock him in his room.  The vagabond spends time around dead people, surely he had some good ideas and suggestions on how to get this earth shattering discovery off the ground if his initial attempt failed.  Alas, his makshift Igor was useless.

Anyway, he left out of the bedroom and there's a warrant of for his arrest.  And they reburied the body.  Which is probably going to put a damper on further testing because Abdul will have to calculate digging time into his plan again.
