Re: Can you blink your eyes or talk AFTER you have been beheaded?
But seriously, I saw a video of a death-row inmate who agreed to be decapitated for a scientist, who wanted to see if people could live. I think it was on liveleak, it's an old-style video looks like it's from the 80's. But the guy blinked twice, after being told to blink twice if he can hear the doctor. interesting, really sorry i don't have the link, it was like 3 years ago I saw it.

So it's impossible for you to make noise through your mouth without breathing?

Are you that stupid?

READ what I said again DICKHEAD!

No..dont bother..ILL POST it in the hope that your rather soggy an untintelligent BRAIN can absorb it..

I SAID...

It takes about 30 seconds for conciousness to fade after the neck is severed.

Talking is impossible because that requires lungs and a voicebox..

But one can look around and KNOW what has happenned.

Chop off a chooks head and see for yourself.

They look around and still react to stimuli for about 30 seconds AFTER they head is cut from the body.

Maybe they can't talk without a voice box...but definitely without lungs.

I never heard a chicken manage a sigle cluck after its head was off.

Can you imagine trying to make any noise at all with a mouthfull of blood..NO lungs..and no voivebox?

Now remind me again..HOW is it possible to talk or make any noise voice wise after your head is off?

Yes It was tradition to pull the head out of the guillotine basket by the hair and show the public the face as the victim would look around and attempt to speak.

It was a horrible thing to watch...

Re: Can you blink your eyes or talk AFTER you have been beheaded?
Is it possible for a person to still be conscious after he/she has been beheaded? Could they be aware of what has happened to them?

It would seem possible due to brain activity...

Could they try to talk? Or look around???

I'm curious...

Re: Can you blink your eyes or talk AFTER you have been beheaded?
Yes.

The people in beheading videos (getting their heads sawed off with a hunting knife) are probably partly unconscious from fear and horror before they are cut. Nature is merciful like that. Its almost certain no head severed in that manner has ever spoken or been conscious.

But when Muslims ruled Spain, beheading was the most humane execution possible. Henry VIII offered to bring the best Spanish swordsman to behead his beloved Anne Bolyn. I think she chose an axe.

In those executions the person was likely to be somewhat reconciled to their fate. They would be religiously prepared and in a state of psychological dissociation or mild trance. The severing blow would be swift and painless. Its very possible the brain would continue to function until it bled out. Four minutes perhaps. I am not aware of any famous last word of the severed heads.

I'm sure history records the treatment of the head, whether it flew off or rolled or was shown to the crowd (or shown its body!) or treated respectfully. I can't think of an instance of a severed head speaking. I've read accounts of witnesses declaring they saw what seemed to them signs of consciousness--eye contact and so on. They could have been hysterical witnesses.

There are undoubtedly more gruesome accounts from the French guillotine. Again, you have to account for hysteria among the viewers as well as the natural human love of augmenting dramatic stories with romantic or gruesome details.

Beheadings by accident or in battle are probably such a surprise and preceded by such chaos that the beheaded person doesn't register what has happened.

There are reports of hanged men running after being cut down then collapsing.

Also, the bodies reflexes are such that a suicide or gunfighter really can get off a shot with his brain destroyed.

Re: Can you blink your eyes or talk AFTER you have been beheaded?
As I recall from history classes at university, mind this was the middle of the last century, Many cases of beheadings reported activity of the head for up to a minute after decapitation, mouth flopping (possibly talking?), eye rolling, eye lid blinking.

Typically though, the shock of the ordeal and the sudden loss of blood from the brain causes the brain to black out within a second after the head departs the body, thus such activity may not be related to conscious awareness of what is going on, but is the sporadic neural activity of a dying brain.

The shock of the event most likely is pain free as well. Having all of those nerves of the spine severed in one blow most likely prevents sensations from being felt for a few seconds, long enough for the brain to succumb to unconsciousness.

Re: Can you blink your eyes or talk AFTER you have been beheaded?
blinking, yes. talking, dont be such a complete fucktard. talking requires the ability to to force air through your vocal cords, and then your tongue and lips. hard to do that without lungs and a diaphragm, genius
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 28147705


Inaccurate statement.

A person can still talk without breathing. Try it.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 28709988


Not when the muscles required are severed or non existent. Some gurgle noises at best may be made.
