After the first glass [of absinthe] you see things as you wish they were. After the second, you see things as they are not. Finally you see things as they really are, and that is the most horrible thing in the world.
-- Oscar Wilde

 

Ever wonder what happens after we die? How do cells die? What makes a stiff stiff? You can find out about how all this exciting stuff happens by reading this article. A chart summarizes a way to estimate the time of death. Decomposition is also charted out for the reader's convenience.

One of my favorite sayings when I am bored is "I can feel the rigor mortis setting in." I decided to see what the Internet had to offer on the subject and this article came up in the search.

I love the way the charts summarize the body temperature of a corpse and decomposition. I hope I don't die after I work out because decomposition happens faster if the body temperature is raised. Dying when it is cold is also a way to slow the nasty decomposition process. Seeing a stiff on the street is a real possibility, and now with the knowledge you have gained you can guess how long that person has been dead.

I do not recommend reading this when you are eating. Of course it can be used as a way to help one diet. Just check out the second chart when you feel tempted to break your weight reduction plan.

Over.  End of Story.  Go home now.
