Mock funerals give 'dearly departed' new outlook on life - CNN.com
It seems that Koreans are "enjoying" a new service in which they pay up to $35 for a fake funeral, complete with 15 minutes in a csket while they reflect on their past and plan for a better future.
And---reason #527 for FIRE---it seems that employers are using this as a way to improve job performance:
Some leading companies see the service as a way of improving job performance. Samsung Electronics Co., South Korea's largest firm, sent 900 workers in 2006 from its factory in Gumi, 160 miles southeast of Seoul.
The experience makes workers more efficient, said Kim Hee-jin, a personnel manager at the Gumi plant, which makes mobile phones, computer printers and fax machines.
May not be long until US companies adopt this! And here I thought it couldn't get any worse than listening to Who Moved My Cheese? and having to act like it was so profound....
