I think this qualifies... Doctors in Spain revive British woman after six hour cardiac arrest.
Poms, they have more Hard to Kill than I realised.

Some timely Christmas weirdness: I did not know until today that not only is St. Nicholas the patron saint of thieves, because of this it is quite appropriate that his bones were stolen by the people that presently have them on display:

(And the patron saint of, among other things, thieves.) The relics are still in Bari's San Nicola basilica.

If you were a thief, who would you love? Probably the guy with loads of stuff that loves giving it away.

Oh, I'd think that any thief (or other villain) would find disconcerting any being, "...who knows when you've been bad or good...".

Merry Christmas!

It's quite handy for the Upright Man leading the Thieves' Guild to know when people have been bad or good. Much harder for the authorities to infiltrate the Guild. And it helps him double-check that the various groups of thieves are keeping up with the required activities.

Knowing isn't the same as having a particular bias or even care as to which way the people lean.
