many people sing: "Deedee! deeDee!"
No reason why The Megatherium Club can't be the name for any nongroup.

One thing that's interesting is that the man's body is described as mummified. Dead bodies typically decompose if they aren't embalmed or prepared.A few years ago I saw a program on the Discovery Channel, about a sect of Japanese monks that try to prepare their bodies for mummification while they're still alive. This involves years on a near-starvation diet, reducing the body's fat content (fat being an obstacle to natural mummification), as well consuming a kind of tree sap that would both cause dehydration before death and fight decomposition afterwards.Here are a couple of links:http://www.discoverychannelasia.com/selfmademummies/feature2.shtmlhttp://www.sonic.net/~anomaly/japan/dbuddha.htm
