Your legs are still alive, you just can't move them. They still get blood and stuff, just not nerve movement.

Probably.


You still have blood flow and ting, just the nerves are knackered so you can't feel anything...
#6
Obviously.

Keratin growth is in no way connected to the effectiveness of nerves.

There's your answer.
#8
Omg this question is retarded... You body still functions, you just can't feel or move it. If your toenails didn't grow, that would mean blood wouldn't flow around either (I know blood doesn't make your toenails grow, but if they didn't grow, why would any other parts work), pretty much means if you paralyzed from the neck down you'd be ****ing dead.

What a retard.

The circulatory system isn't directly connected to the nerves, so of course.

your toenails continue growing after you've died for a while. paralysis is nothing



No they don't...

The skin contracts and such, giving the impression that they are still growing. Same applies for your hair.

I thought this would be penis related....

But i reckon they do, cause its not the nerves?

You are talking about corpses. IF that was true, anyone paralyzed waist down would have zombie, rotten, legs.

Being paralyzed means that you cannot control your muscles, BUT they are still alive. Thus both hair and nails grow just like normal man's does.

Actually they are right.

Edit: they were talking about when you die, not when paralyzed.

FFS read the blasted thread....

We already established that spazzes can still grow toe nails. Someone said that nails keep growing after death, I pointed out that they don't.

Pardon, didn't read quote in that post.

Btw, did you know that corpses also can "growl" due to gasses inside of them? Got hell scared when heard it first time at father's work.

Fuck, don't talk about dead people in a thread about paralyzed people, trying to get me mixed up

Quote by joshua122593
Nerves don't work but growth hormones do.


Wtf?

Keratin growth has barely any relevance to growth hormones.

granted, but the actual visual 'growing' is because of reasons mentioned above. 2 or 3 minutes won't make a difference visually

One of my friends is in a wheelchair for the rest of her life. I have casually noticed before that her legs are very normal looking (albeit a little small), and her feet look well taken care of. I don't know how she does it, but her toenails are painted nicely and are a lot better looking than some of my walking ex-girlfriends. Just for the record: I'm not saying she couldn't do it herself, I can just understand how hard it would be for her with her spasms and all.

I know it's terrible but i think it would be quite funny if some one was paralyzed from the waist up.
