seeing you have zero ability to choose what is and isn't tasteful to post... assume that they are most likely NOT appropriate.

Why would you want to post a morgue photo? The person's relatives could sue you.

He's testing us Gabs....

Since his Moral Compass provides no direction.... he needs to gauge the response of others by.

Just another TEST of the TAILFINS Board Trolling SYSTEM.

I would very rarely think a morgue photo would be something we want to see. Maybe a dead terrorist type of morgue photo, but that's about it. Like already stated here, we're an adult board, but not that type of adult board. And it is possible that some young 'uns may be reading. I can't think of many reasons to post such, so let's assume that if it ain't Saddam, Osama or members of ISIS, we likely don't need to see it.

I just see the humor in it. Blast from the past having run a couple of boards. "Gunny, you don't have a specific rule concerning this or that". What part of progressive lefty do I sound like? As Jim pointed out, we're all adults. AND, the fact that kids CAN get on DOES come into play.

Simple common sense: post a warning, then a link, then what you have to say.

Instead of flipping the bird, you flash a morgue photo? Dude, that's just weird. Not even in the cage. I like to watch me some fucked up videos from times to time, and look through some strange photos. Sue me, I'm weird at times too! LOL But not here, this is a politically based site. One such photo sets off another.

And even more seriously, I have been contacted by the company of the one and only ad system used here, previously to remove certain content. They really aren't fond of using ads on pages that display crazy content.

Truth is, there are TONS AND TONS of morgue photos out there. I don't know the laws, privacy issues and such, and don't really want to know, as they won't be here. But I would imagine it's not unlawful all of the time, with so many out there. Maybe they are leaked, who knows.

I once found the makeshift morgue room at JFK Hospiotal in NJ when we were kids. My aunt was in there like forever, with bone cancer. My brother and I used to go with our Dad, and we would go the cafe, and of course never make it there. Wheelchair races, foot races, ringing buzzers... a little harmless mayhem :) Somewhere a few levels down in an elevator we shouldn't have been on. We couldn't get in there, and we got escorted off of that section. Was still cool though!

I did a job at the Baptist Hospital in San Antonio about ten years ago where we busted off a corner and made it a separate clinic. The 4th floor is where you go when you ain't going back home. Roy Akers Funeral Home is your next stop. And we had to use the elevator that went to the morgue to go up and down. So the elevator stops to pick us up and there's this bodybag on a cart. Ever seen that favorite move where you start to step forward and suddenly reverse course?:laugh: We were like, we'll wait.

I'm just not seeing the point to posting the pics. Shock value? Or is this just a sideways attack on the rules?

OK we gonna go there. I had a revolving bed in the ICU one night. The second deceased of the day was waiting for me when I got in. It was close to visiting hours so I just closed the curtain after prepping and wrapping the decedent, figuring I would wait till the visitors left to take her downstairs. Halfway through visiting hour I got a call from the admission office that I had to get that body downstairs right away. I wondered aloud what the rush could be. She says the funeral director was coming RIGHT NOW. I had a room full of visitors and no way to slip a morgue stretcher out. Understand the morgue stretcher has a raisable steel bin and a lightweight cover that conceals it. I asked one of my colleagues to come up with a plan. She comes in with the stretcher, a patient gown and a couple of sheets. I almost lost it when she climbed up on the cover, lay down with the gown over her uniform and asked me to wheel her out, all the while smiling and waving and saying how nice all the nurses were. She jumped off at the elevators and we almost choked laughing so hard. we ended up waiting half an hour at the loading dock for the funeral director anyway. Yes I am gonna have to write a book one day.

THAT is dedication. :laugh:

I guess my point is this: I've seen dead bodies on a battlefield. The ONE thing they don't look like is dead bodies on TV. And THAT is my issue here. The people who want to post these pics probably don't have to deal with the reality of it and probably have never had to. They think it's all clinical and whatnot based on their favorite NCIS/CSI episode.

WiccanLiberal

I have seen the dead in all sorts of conditions. None look like what appears on TV. The majority of people in our society have never and will never see someone deceased unless in a coffin after the mortuary artists are through with them. People seem most interested in the famous or infamous. But there are plenty of places online to look for that so don't see any reason to have that here.

Agreed. I think one can make a point without graphic photos to support it.

But if you look real close, most Americans react to inflammatory images. Forget the facts.

How about "no"? You ever seen a dead body, tailfins? Or watch someone bleed out in front of you? We don't want to see that shit. Or do you just like triggering people?

Tell me, WHY is it so important you post pics of dead bodies? They're seared into my mind. Only people I've ever seen that want to do this are just into shock value. For those of us that have been there, save it.

When I was a kid one of the guys I hung out with Father owned a few funeral homes, man the stuff you see there is wild, I can remember the first time I was told to get something ( yes I worked for his Dad in the summer time ) out of the embalming room while they where actually embalming someone, hell it must of been a funny sight, I can remember walking in and keeping my head turned away from the body, scared to death, I am sure those folks laughed their butts off about that. But by the time the summer was over we use to play on the embalming table, I can remember laying on it ( drunk as a skunk ) and my buddy would pump it up as high as it would go and then hit the release to see how fast it would come down.

Then once out of HS, my buddies Dad gave him the apartment over one of the homes, you use to have to walk through the funeral home to get to his apartment, talk about creepy, all the lights out and a body laying in the viewing room. I remember one night we got the idea of taking the body out on the main road out front and make like we where beating the heck out of the guy and thought it would be funny as hell when the cops got there to find the guy already embalmed. :laugh: No we never did it, we where strange and deviant bit we weren't animals.

I hear all the stories with Jay, and then I heard more with Tommy, who also lived in the apartment above the home!

The sad part though, is that after all of them stories, as we grow older, I've now seen these fellas at their respective homes they run, far far too often. Weird knowing you grew up with certain people, then you start seeing them year after year by going to funerals. :(

Boobies are always good. Dead bodies, not so much.

I can understand the fascination with boobies, but the fascination with death is a little more difficult. We're all going to die, so focusing on the inevitable end is, IMHO, an exercise in futility.

Come on down Jim, my boys is ready to lay some ink, says he wants you to carry it back up north and show folks you can get a jam up tatt for a decent price, no need to rob folks.

Also my other buddy ( that does the portraits , and he is fantastic ) said he will do Porter for a real good price, says if you are my Bro he will take good care of you.
