While we are young, we do not pay much attention to years, births and dies, illnesses, or life altogether. As we get older, sometimes we are amazed at the speed with which people disappear, going to the “other” world. People are dying. Although most of us are emotionally difficult to endure someone’s death or do not talk much about the final parting (cemeteries or funerals), death is like birth and life-human inevitability.
According to the encyclopedia, an obituary (a scribble or a death certificate) is a newspaper advertisement on the occasion of someone’s death. The word “obituary” is feminine.
Word of the Scribble (death certificate)consists of 7 characters, which is 1.8 less than the average word. It contains 3 (42.9%) vowels, which is 0.1 percent more than the average.
Lettered in Morse code:
-.-. .. – ..- .- .. .— .-
The death certificate is also referred to as the last mention, last greeting or death certificate.
In this part of Europe, the death leaf is published in the daily press, pasted on a banner or even a regular tree (so that everyone passing by can see the death leaf, read when and where the funeral will be, and read the deceased’s address where they can go in private to express their condolences to the family). In recent years, death certificates have been published online in the daily press.
People are still very interested in turning the page first, or looking for daily magazines that are published online and contain death certificates.
What is the motive for so much interest in reading obituaries (advertisements about a person’s death) in magazines? Is there a hidden, subconscious and psychological meaning here? Is there any realistic and logical explanation?
We don’t think about it specifically. As we get older, we start reading the death certificates in the newspaper or searching for them online in the daily press. We pause at the end of every tree or banner on which the death certificate is affixed. It’s out of human curiosity and not much interest. The psychological underpinning is that we read the death certificates to see if we knew the person. If we are, we will take the time if we can go to the funeral (last farewell), write a condolence telegram to the family, or visit the rest of the family to express their regrets to them personally and thus to some degree show people that we are participating in their pain.
In these difficult and sad moments, it is human to joke slightly (to make it easy for ourselves): Have you looked at today’s papers? It’s good, we’re still alive. Or there is none of the celebrities. It was all a mild internal joke. No one was ever angry.
The death certificate or “Shoneta” is mostlyshort framed ‘advertisements’ in which relatives of the deceased inform fellow citizens that one of their relatives has passed away, and may include the contents of the condolences to the relatives, or the anniversary announcement as a sign of January or something else. Depending on how significant the deceased was in social events and how many relatives have money, the size and number of obituaries varies. In smaller places, the obituary is printed as a small poster that is glued to more busy places (wood at a busy location, on the wall of a shop, a traffic station, an eye-catching place … etc).
Generally speaking, posting an obituary or a bulletin in a daily newspaper serves to inform all those who could not otherwise receive the news of the deceased person. It indicates the date when the deceased died, his first and last name, the names of the bereaved (relatives, friends); the date, time and place of the funeral and possibly the address of the deceased’s family (for those who are unable to attend the funeral in person, they may go to the deceased’s family and express their condolences in person).
After 7 days, 40 days, half a year and one year, the new reader will be informed of the date, time and place of the memory / memorial.
When it comes to how many relatives, friends and acquaintances should take part in expressing pain through the pulpit, the criterion should be sought in what the family of the deceased expects: if they think that a multitude of pulpits will give them solace, as a last sign that their loved one is able to make many friendships and connections with people in life, then you can express condolences in writing. In doing so, the sober, measured and discreet tone of the pulp should serve as inspiration. If you do not go to the funeral, you do not condolence the family to the given address from the death certificate – these are still considered inappropriate and uncultured behavior in these parts. Still, some traditions always last. And it is good that it is so because in this way we show our sympathy with the family, provide comfort and assistance (through our presence and in many other ways) in difficult moments and in our own way say our last goodbyes to the deceased person.
In the neighboring country of Montenegro, it was not enough for the death certificates to be published only in newspapers. For example, they started a web site (registry or list of deaths) where you can type in the name of the deceased person you are looking for and information will appear when that person died and how.
A registry called “umrli.me” has a search by months and days for all those who have passed away.
In addition, the web site contains information about cemeteries in Montenegro and chitulas, death certificates and the last greetings from family and friends.
Some people feel the need to write a death certificate for something they have used or loved in their lives that is gone. It can be anything, an object, an animal, an object. This “last goodbye” gives them comfort and thus they are forgiven for loving (which is gone).
Thus, a journalist wrote on the internet portal a “death certificate” or an article (last goodbye) to a comic book he loved, which stopped printing on June 22, 2019.
The Death Certificate for Vertigo Comics (1993-2019)
The American comic book institution known as Vertigo Comics is unfortunately no longer with us. This Friday, the DC comics editorial board announced that they would end this cult podetic after twenty-seven years of publishing. Why should anyone care? Vertigo is synonymous with quality comics for adult audiences, or at least it used to be. The British invasion of American comics in the late 1980s and early 1990s had its crown with the formation of this brand. Since 1993, they have been major innovators in the American comic book market.
The Vertigo legacy is more than impressive. Masterpieces to which we return again and again. Try picking a favorite among the legends: Neil Gaiman began his success with Sandman, Warren Ellis had Transmetropolitan, and Garth Ennis Preacher. My personal choice is the cult John Constantine Hellblazer series and Shade The Changing Man from the pen of Peter Milligan.
I’m not some prophet but I saw the death of Vertigo comics back in 2012. Then they canceled their longest running Hellblazer series. The Jubilee Three Hundred Number (# 300) instead of a celebration became a tragedy. John Constantin became part of the official DC Multiverse, and apparently there was no room for the subversive reading that Vertigo and this fictional character were known for. Not that there were no good Vertigo comics in the twenty-first century. Jason Aaron and our above list R.M. Guerre were done by Scalped. I’m a big fan of Brian Wood’s DMZ series, which was released from 2005 to 2012. But nothing after 2012 impressed me.
I saw the death of Vertigo comics again last year when the DC Black Label was formed. This sub-topic is intended for adult readers (DC comics for the big ones). The first comic book released under this brand Batman: Damned (September 2018) featured Batman’s adventures with John Constantine. Not a bad title. It occurred to me at the time what the existence of Vertigo comics in addition to DC Black Label really was. It didn’t take long for DC editorial boards to come to the same conclusion. Starting next year, all DC adult comics will be exclusively released under the label of DC Black Label. It was good while it lasted. But long ago, Vertigo comics were nothing special.
Here are some interesting explanations for the death certificate:
An undeniable sign of the aging of human specimens.
As soon as you start to see the chitulas while walking down the street, your generation is slowly coming to a head.
Last chance to end up in the paper.
This is when someone dies, so they advertise it around town and become popular and famous.
The page where the names and photos of all those who will certainly not read these newspapers or any of today’s newspapers are published!
The death certificate is the last revelation and salute to the deceased person.
