PostSubject: Early morning boredom   Thu Mar 03, 2011 3:49 am

Hey, so I'm always up into the wee hours of the morning because all of my classes this semester are night classes. As such, I don't have much to do, because my roommate is sleeping.

This is a plea to all those on this forum, asking you to avert my boredom, if only for a few moments. And also, I'd like to just talk about things with you guys, I read, but never really think to post...

Wow.
Just wow.
I have no idea where you got this, but it is very interesting, and it has in fact distracted me.
Unfortunately, there are three things in that list that I know are wrong. (Yay Mythbusters!)
Human hair and fingernails do not grow after death, if they appear to do so, it is because the skin around them retracts.

And a duck's quack does echo, and I would post a video if I could have found one on youtube...

No they donīt, as the body starts to break down ( at the moment of death it begins ), the tissues dehydrate and shrink, giving the appearance of growth.

Naturaly resistant to all known bactiria and viruses, one of two known foods that when left in a closed container it will never spoil or become unedible, what is the other ? no itīs not a fruitcake LOL

It was clear, the bottle was green

It also causes your heart to stop, what other body function produces the same effect ( is also a cause of major heart attacks in both male and females )

The only thing that I know that would fit that description is salt, which is also the only edible mineral.

The other function that he is referring to is going to the bathroom. Specifically going #2 (Elvis died on the toilet)

I don't know why, but I know a lot of completely useless info...

Salt would also qualify I guess, but the other food is Peanut Butter, the natural oil found in Peanuts is also imunne to all known bacterias and Viruses.

Speaking of Salt, a natural crystal found on all continents, been around for millions of years, capable of returning to its natural form when mixid with other fluids, Why is there an expiration date on the Package ??

as far as the Heart Stopping body function, Itīs the Orgasm, regardless of sex, both male and females actualy experiance a minor heart attach during each climax.

La petite mort = The Little Death

Elvis died of a drug overdose wich caused his heart to stop, not a natural body function, well not in most people Wink

Well, I'm not sure about the drug thing with Elvis, I assume you're right, just like I assume most major musicians do drugs. I do know, however, for a definite fact, that he was found on the toilet. And, about dying while taking a dump, all I can say without TMI is that my mother is a nurse, and she has some graphic stories...

Slob, ever full of trivia, just as I remember. I'll chance a guess: Is it because of the iodine?

It's not from the iodine, the iodine is added artificially so that people don't get goiters. Because they're absolutely nasty, and everyone likes salt. Smile

You hair finger nails don't continue to grow after you die. It just seems that way because the skin dehydrates, which makes it shrink, making hair/fingernails seem longer.
