Well my friend today was talkin about his car crash in 6th grade, and believe me it was bad. I know he did break 3 limbs, with internal bleeding, fractured skull and a collapsed lung. Now he says he "died" three times that night because his heart stopped for over "X" amount of time, but they were able to get it re-started. I do not doubt that. But for some reason I don't see how thats right.

I didn't wanna delve into a deep agrument for fear of goin all or nothin and being wrong in a technicality and medical sense of ways, but I know what he is tryin to say. They say you "die" when u sneeze. Now is this actually true or is there some silly medical term for it, because i mean come on you aren't "dying" when you sneeze.

Dictionary.com says dying is this : (definition of "die") : to cease to live; undergo the complete and permanent cessation of all vital functions; become dead.


So but he swears up and down it's considered dying. Cleary the definition says "permanent cessation." What bugs me about all this is how he used the "dyin 3 times part" as some kind of sob story. Granted, his crash was hellacious at best.

So did he "die" or am i right that it can't be called "dying"?

he did 'die', but only because if there is a term for what happened to him, he doesnt know it

well jesus came back from the dead.......... so if what u are saying is true, then he didnt come back from the dead, because to die is to be permanantly deceased.... so he came back from not-living.

to be classified dead, u just need your vital parts of your body to stop. that is breathing, pulse, heartbeat etc.

Yes, your heart can stop. Dosen't mean your dead. When your heart stops, you are 'almost' dead. See, if your other organs are still working, you have about 1 minutes before I would consider you dead.

Oh and while he was in the ambulance, why didn't the medics notice that his head was really far up his arse, probably didn't wanna perform CPR on the bullshitter.

Edit: Well I take my comment back, I haven't seen this guy nor do I know him. but if he's had a history of bullshitting, don't believe what he says....
yo.

I BELIEVE

Doesn't your heart stop really fast when you sneeze? So I guess I have "died" many many times.

Yeah, but your still alive.

This sort of reminds me of Scary Movie 3 when the 2 black guys debate 'waking up dead'

Isnt it considered "clinically dead" or something like that? I'm assuming he is talking about the same thing that has happened to Slash, Nikki Sixx etc.

Jakester: your brain dies 5 minutes after your heart stops


Thx for bringing that up.

People you die when you got no brain cells. (which die when the circulatory system malfunctions) and also.

"You can't go to bed dead, that would be redundant"

Well, maybe he was legally dead, but not biologically dead. There was one episode of House were House was legally dead for over a minute, but the other doctors were able to revive him.
No animals were harmed in order to bring you the above post. However, several photons were greatly inconvenienced.

Thats stupid, you don't die and come back, if your heart stops but you don't cease to live, then in all practicality you never died. Your heart just stopped. People just think it sounds cool to say they died.
