    Here's my account of the afterlife, which I definitely visited when I wasn't really dead and was in fact just unconscious after surgery:

    Chuck Yeager showed up, because in the afterlife he's apparently dead.  He handed me a kumquat and told me "Never, EVER let go of this, it is made of thorium."  Then my math professor, but as a man (because that's possible in heaven) started teaching a class on something, but was interrupted when the roof of the building was picked up by a giant chipmunk.  (I'm not sure, but I think that was God.)  Everyone was running around screaming, but I threw the thorium kumquat that for some reason had become a textbook at the chipmunk/deity, which made it start snowing.  Then we went sledding.  We used giant nickels that were really light and had in place of Jefferson's face a portrait of Dave Letterman.

    I know it sounds incredible, but it's just as logical as this guy's story.  Or the "Divine Comedy."  Or even the entirety of St. Elsewhere as it existed in that kid's imagination at the end of the series.
