uh... thanks, Owen

Owen Rathbone, who only so recently was debating whether to put his own blog to death, posts a very disturbing link that discusses the issue of consciousness after decapitation. Read at your own risk. The page contains no photos, but the content-- much of which dates to about a century ago-- is still rather graphic if you're the sensitive type. I have a pretty high gore tolerance threshold, but even I found this rather unsettling. Didn't stop me from eating a sandwich while reading, though.

[NB: Movie buffs will recall that the above matter plays a queasy role in one of the chilling monologues of William Peter Blatty's "Exorcist 3."]

UPDATE: On a completely different note, check out Shawn's recent adventure with a dog named Cock.
