There was a test done and the executed was told that after his head is severed to bl<x>ink until he couldn't. He bl<x>inked for 10 seconds.
keep eyes open of course! Neuro connectivity might allow the head to momentarily look back at the guillotine as it drops into the basket.
If a woman is to face her execution on a guillotine, she would have been erotically aroused as her neck is bared, and then stimulated further when she feels the stocks (or rather 'lunettes') encircle the doom females sensuous 'stem'. Her eyes are widened as she suddenly hears the blade rolling down and it is only a second before the angled blade slices off her head! (Instantly, her head drops into the traditional whicker basket!) If she can still keep her eyes open for just a few moments more, her apparently living face can be seen by the baying crowd who are still tauting the woman's severed head as (following death) her eyes lower, and her jaw is allowed to drop as her executioner displays the executed woman's severed head!
I saw a special one time on the History Channel about capital punishment. The mentioned the fellow who bl<x>inked for 10 seconds, and also a woman who blushed after her face was slapped. I would believe the condemned has a few moments of conciousness after the head is severed, before the blood supply is lost.
I think you are referring to the same documentary I saw.
I'd have to guess the voice would be lost with the severing of the head from the body (and specifically the lungs and the air the supply). Now the eyes fluttering or the face twitching, I'd think there would be a direct link to the brain and the facial nerves so that is plausible (only an uneducated opinion though).
well no the person is dead the reason that may happen is nerves that are still active like a chicken with the head cut off kind of thing
I would think they would stay open, since the shock of seeing the blade coming down is the last thing you see.
Yea, i think your right. I haven't seen a beheading in a long time.. lol
I guess that it wouldnt matter to me
Not when my head is chopped off!
