I was in the emergency department at a Bangor hospital the other day (sudden epic back/side pain: medical science shrugs, assumes I've had a interesting convergence of bad luck, muscle strain, and an internal suture from the Surgery Adventure), and they asked me for my religion during check-in. I was unable to keep myself from giving the clerk a What Has That Got To Do With Anything? face for a second or two, then told her I'm an atheist. That got me a momentary odd look in return and a box checked on some computerized hospital form, which presumably means if I die in that hospital at any future point they'll just strip me for parts and toss me on the burn pile. Which I'm OK with as long as they're sure I'm really dead.
