I only read the first errr posting, then got bored ;o)


So to inject a little humour into it

I think the definitive answer would be:

Good drunken debate from a few nights ago.


The question: How many 5 year-olds could you take on at once?


Answer from a Mr Michael Jackson: Oh normally 3 or 4

Wow, I rarely complain about something wasting my time on Usenet but
that tops all timewasters. Single most pathetic discussion I've ever
read. In my entire life, Internet or not.

Probably because there just aren't solutions to some problems, at least
not workable ones. You could give the kids a sedative, but then their
reactions wouldn't normal. You could make them stay still (or try),
which would have the same effect. Movie clips are the best I have been
able to manage in many cases.

sp Guillotine.

You too, eh? Wanna flip for it? In various fictional ponderings the
lopped off head can see for and hear a brief moment and in others for
several seconds. Someday, in the name of science, they'll wire up some
poor animal and answer the question... in one recently read fictional
book the coroner state that the death would be instantaneous due to
aeroembolism.

One of the more clever 'intant death' scenes I read was last night: A
fellow gets tossed out in the cold of winter night at a processing plant
in Siberia. The temperature is -55°C. After he stumbles around for a
few minutes, getting very cold, he finds his vodka bottle that had
fallen onto the hardpack. He decides the booze will 'warm' him up. Of
course it has rapidly chilled to far below freezing...

Cheers,
Alan.

LOL, I thought I was the only person who ever wondered that. Also,
would you recognize your body over there and would you have time to be
horrified?

I read about 5 pages looking for something funny or interesting, and fell
asleep. I was at work, too, not good. If I need to fall asleep tonight
I'll go back to it.

I'm not alone after all!!


I also wonder whether if the blade stopped immediately...keeping your
severed head pressed against the blade after detachment...whether the
pressing blade might briefly curb the bleeding enough to maintain a bit more
blood pressure...which might allow a few full seconds of awareness.

II get the death penalty someday I think I'll ask for this, and then try and
devise a way to signal someone like you with my eyes one way or the other...

Deal?

I'm sure the massive shock straight to your central nervous system
(through the spinal cord) would zap you unconscious straight away.
That's not to say dead, just unconscious, like the karate chop to
the neck thing.
