    ... in a room there are ten men (alive) and 15 women (all of which are dead)?

    Or do you still count the women because, regardless of being posthumously counted, they're still female?

    Lol. It depends on the venue. If I were at a Mortician's house warming party and many of the females present were morticians, I'd bet I'd get them to die laughing.

    It's probably how my question would come to fruition anyways. It's rather the catch 22.

    Essene, here is $50K, 15 forged passports, a garbage bag, and 15 shovels. I have a strange feeling that you and 14 of your friends will be needing these things in the immediate future.

    I'd take all of the above sans the garbage bag. I don't like to pollute the earth with non organic materials (unless it's one of those "go green" bags.

    I mean as long as the bodies are still warm. Id feel better if they all were those $5k life sized dolls. Its less rigamortis, dead expelled fluids and smells, and flesh eating bacteria. Btw I believe the ratio would be 2:3, which is still acceptable.

    Schrodinger's women are in a state of both dead and alive.

    It's just one of those parties where the people seem dead. So really it's 10 men to 15 woman. Get busy!

    I was wondering is people feel the need to quantify people in a census is they're no longer living. People often say "s/he would want this," as if their force was some how present to have it matter how s/he would have liked an arrangement of flowers, or what have you. I understand people usually do it to be respectable to those who have passed; but if we can't count them as being part of a group, dead or alive, I don't understand why one would go to the trouble to "respect the dead;" especially when it isn't someone they knew.

    Also, I just thought it'd be an interesting question to ask. I would count all people present regardless if they were dead or alive.

    Good way to look at it. I'd say the ratio is in favor for the males (excuse my antiquated thinking).

    Google Schrodinger, it's a pretty famous thought experiment of quantum physics.
