"and her name really isnt penelope..."

so today i was at work, and i was thinking about decapitation. like how it affects the body. im talking like a quick smooth cut, like with a sharp blade or a gullitine. not like a head being slowly sawed off, thats on a whole different page. well because your brain is in your head and your heart is in your body (call me captian obvious), but when your head is cut off, what stops first? i would assume your brain would go longer than your heart, so you would realize your head is not on your body. and the heart pumps, but it doesnt think. so you couldnt realize there is something missing. but it might actually work longer than the brain. but you couldnt realize that the heart works longer, because the brain does all the thinking. so how do you know? and with the only way to find out, you really arent able to tell anyone. or live. so i guess its just one of those things that i can sit here and think about, and never know.

i forget the name but... the once was a famous man executed by gullitine in europe. he liked science, and told someone to watch to see how many times he could blink his eyes after his head was off. he blinked them quite a few times. now they know you don't always die insantly when your beheaded.
