As John Fogerty stated, “Hope you are quite prepared to die.” Yet, after reading this explanation of the specifics of the trip, I’m guessing probably not. While I remain unafraid of being dead, thanks to this article, the prospect of getting there is now reasonably terrifying.
Drowning doesn’t sound too bad, and I understand freezing is pretty painless, although they didn’t discuss that one. But death by fire, hanging, falling, or even electrocution? No thanks. The most disturbing revelation? Apparently after being decapitated (which sounds pretty swift and painless), your brain still functions for 7 to 30 seconds. Meaning you have ample time to contemplate your new state, and even take a gander at your better half assuming your head rolls quickly to a stop at a convenient angle. Ewww.
