    This is a weird one folks. Guy skips out on family. Disappears. Family declares him legally dead. Guy reappears. Guy's wife can't repay $$$$ she got as result of declaring him dead. Judge tells man he's still dead.

    What happens, I wonder, when this actually dies????

    It would have been great if the judge finished his piece by pointing at the guy and saying, "This guy here is dead."

    And he's not only merely dead
    He's really most sincerely dead

    He could go on a killing spree, and if they sentence him to life, he could try to claim that since he's already dead, how can he get life? Or if he committs his spree in Texas, he could say, "What are you going to do, kill me again?"

    It would be real cool if the guy hit some kind of huge payday or something, and when the government wanted its cut, he didn't have to pay taxes because he was "dead."

    Courts do some stupid stuff, and this has to rank right up there. I would be funny if he walked over and punched the judge but couldn't be charged because he is technically not alive.

    It works both ways. A cop in the courtroom could maybe then blow him away and not have to fill out the paperwork, since the guy technically doesn't exist.
