Is it true if you get your head chopped off its still alive for a second or two?!

Question: Is it true if you get your head chopped off its still alive for a second or two!?
Yes, well documented!. In fact Antoine Lavoisier proved this by blinking in code after his beheading!. An account from a Dr Beaurieux, of an execution by guillotine states that 5-6 seconds after the event the lips and eyelids worked with "irregular rhythmic contractions"!. After this, the eyes opened and rolled back!. Calling the victim's name caused the eyes to move back into position and focus on the doctor and then go back to how it was!. Calling a second time had a similar effect, a third call had no effect!. The whole account describes 25-30 seconds of events!.Www@Answer-Health@Com

I would imagine so!. You would not be aware of this!. Your body itself would take a little time for the organs to shut down without having the brain and lack of oxygen from being beheaded!. I imagine that the brain would take a few to shutdown and fire off it's last few nerve endings before completely dying!.Www@Answer-Health@Com

i don't know, well let me chop someones head of first then ill ask it "you still alive!?" if it answers yes then yes if no then no lolWww@Answer-Health@Com

it's very interesting
but im guessing that it would be more than that it would be more than two seconds becuse it takes time for the brain to realize that it's no longer able to functionWww@Answer-Health@Com

I heard for humans if you get your head chopped off you can live for about 5 seconds!.

and for chickens it is 15 seconds!.

I believeWww@Answer-Health@Com
