Buried Alive
#21
Along time ago I'd actually read that they think this is where Zombie's originated from. Some of the VooDoo practices used potions or something that just slowed heart rate and respiration so much that a person would be thought to be dead and be buried.

In some cases the casket wasn't buried deep in the ground, it was just a shallow grave and by the time a person was actually buried the potion would be wearing off. They'd wake up and dig themselves out of the casket and became what everyone thought was the "walking dead".

EP,
Check your pm's. Nothing bad!
I remember hearing about that story when I was a kid about the soldiers. I thought it was just another legend about this town, but I guess events like that were not uncommon during the War between the States..........on both sides.

I once saw a film based on truth and what you say happens alot in Haiti, that's where the film was located. There is some serious c*** goes on there. Voodoo is practised and black magic. What a place to live!

All my life I always wanted to be somebody. Now I see that I should have been more specific...

I can't even imagine the horror of being buried alive. It brings about all of the fears I have about being trapped somewhere, unable to get out.

You can't strangled yourself with your bare hands, as soon as you lose consciousness, your grip would relaxed and you could breathe again, the same holds true about holding your breath, you can't hold your breath long enough to die.

The survival functions are control by the brain stem and they are not under voluntary control.

I should have known you knew it but there are others who might not know it, so, I guess it was for them. It was good you all could get some humor from such a distressing topic. Never hurt to laugh at things,

I don't know which I like better, Pitch..........your wise words or your hilarious character smileys. Either way, keep 'em coming!

I laugh, but this still scares me, the idea of being buried alive. I laugh hardest when I'm the most scared. "Whistling in the dark" so to speak.

I must admit Pitch, couldn't stand the thought that for afew minutes you thought i actually thought you could strangle yourself or hold your breath [Image: 120.gif]

My family are brilliant Pitch they find humour in absolutely everything, my dad is the funniest man on the planet, he really should have been a stand up. He's absolutely nuts though (not really), just funny nuts. My brother is not far behind either, he'll get anyone out of a bad mood.

Just been on your awesome site Pitch and left afew comments. [Image: 221.gif]

I recently saw pictures and read a story about an old man that died, and was embalmed. During the funeral someone prayed over him and he was alive. This created quite a stir, and many people rushed to interview him and his wife. She claimed everything seemed to be alright, except he still smelled from the embalming fluid, which was still seeping out of his body and through his clothes. I've never doubted that God could raise the dead, even if they were already embalmed..., and now it has finally happened.
Never say Never.

Incidentally, I've read in years past about people being buried alive. Frankly it disturbed me then as a child, and I still feel a little creepy when I think about it. Blueoh Yes. Edgar Allan Poe's stories made quite an impression on me. "The Fall of the House of Usher" Wasn't that one about the sister buried alive?

I was especially fond of the "beating heart" that was buried beneath the floor boards, and the detective, the edge of insanity. The longer I read it the more anxiety I could feel. I was glad when I reached the end. And let's not forget "The Raven."

Incidentally, he wrote poetry as well, and short stories for some small literary magazine. I'm not certain I want to know anymore about the man. He seemed to embody the meaning of "creepy!"

I see a way out of this. Have them bury you with a fully charged cell phone, and extra charged batteries, and a extension of the antenna above ground. Oh, and make sure you're within the areas that give you coverage. Oh. If you are embalmed, I guess you can skip all of this.

I plan to buried with my Notebook PC. I wonder if I can get internet coverage in Heaven..., or the other place? Just kidding!!!
Forgiveness is next to deity.
