People have been known to blink and move their eyes after being beheaded, so I'm sure they might be able to see a few moments. Most people die right away though. Creepy.
to captain ahab moby dick symbolizes death and terror The white whale is also biblically significant in the way it represents god and the universe and stuff in between.
The head will move and wiggle a lot, but the rest of the body won't as much.
You are probably getting it frozen in a box, and the head is cut off so that it fits well in the box. The are not "only" sold H&G (head off and gutted). But their head isn't attractive...... they cut the head off because if us humans see that it has a face like us then we want eat it anymore
He waited until she was sleeping, and then cut off her head by watching her reflection on the shield that Athena had lent him. Some tales say she wasn't sleeping but Perseus had a magical item as a gift from the god to make him invisible.
Queequeg, Starbuck, Ishmael (feel free to call him that), but most of all, Captain Ahab.. Queequeg, Starbuck, Ishmael (feel free to call him that), but most of all, Captain Ahab.
A cockroach can survive 9 days without it's head, before it starves to death. Actually, roaches' brains aren't completely in its head--it's spread out throughout the body, mostly situated in their legs. They can survive for several weeks before finally dying of starvation. Even its head lives on f…or a few more hours after being chopped off, since, blood is still circulating inside. :) (MORE)

Good Ol' Edward Teach had his head popped off by gravity because he was hung.
The removal of a person's head (or the head of any animal) is decapitation . (see the related question)
1) She was a monster and a threat to the area.. 2) King Polydeukes asked him to.
It has before been observed that if your head were to be cut off you would be able to blink for a split second after the decapitation. However, I do not think that you would be able to talk as you voice box and vocal chords would have been separated from your head. Also, even if you were able to the…n it would be for just a split second as after that time your nerves would no longer function and so messages would not be sent to your brain. The theory of being able to blink for a second after your head had been chopped off was observed during the execution of Anne Boleyn. (MORE)
Beowulf cut of Grendel's head as a final act of revenge. This wasdone as revenge for all of the people Grendel had killed.
god shiva came home thirsty and was stopped at the gate by ganesha.Shiva was furies and cut Ganeshas head off!
First of all, most chickens don't live long after their heads are cut off, which makes sense since the point of cutting off the head is to kill the chicken. If the head is cut off completely and properly, the chicken should die and stay dead. The reason some chickens survive a beheading is that s…ometimes the brain stem, or most of it, is left behind. The brain stem is what controls the chicken's reflexes and instincts--things like breathing, heartbeat, movement, and basic behaviors. Unlike insects and other lower lifeforms, chickens (like mammals) are dependent on their brains for metabolic regulation. A chicken normally dies of shock, bleeding, difficulty breathing through a damaged trachea, or from damage to its brain stem or spinal cord. Even if it survives more than a few hours, it would still die of dehydration or starvation, being unable to eat without a head. Mike is one of the most famous headless chickens (he traveled in sideshows, and was photographed for Time and Life magazines). After his head was cut off on September 10, 1945, he was kept alive for 18 months by his owner, who used an eyedropper to drip a mixture of ground-up corn kernels and water down the open throat. He finally died because his owner forgot or was unable to clean out his trachea, and the chicken suffocated. (MORE)
Because the nerve endings are exposed and jangle about a little before it finally ceases life.
After King Acrisius sent Danae and Perseus away from Argos, they came to a land where the king collected wives and he wanted Danae as a wife, but she refused, so he sent soilders out after her(After what must seem like the millionth time of asking her to Danae) And Perseus beat them up and sent them… back and told them to tell the King she would marry who she wanted, so the King, (Obviously being really mad At Perseus) Wanted Perseus killed so he told him to go and kill Medusa thinking he would be killed, But he got the head as asked and brought it to Athena (And Yes King Acrisius was killed by Perseus like in the prophecy) THAT is why he cut Medusa's head off.

In the movie Freddy vs. Jason, at the end when the fight is over, Jason Vorhees ( Friday the 13th ) slices Freddie's head clean off. But as it turns out, Freddy is not actually dead.
Without the head the body cannot live. Have you ever seen when a snakes head is cut from its body and the body twitches some? That is the nerves of the snake. Same principle with humans I believe.
king charles head was cut of because he treated the poor people very bad and treated the wealthy like royalty
It will normally die. However, it can flop around for awhile because the nerves are still triggering its muscles. Removing the head from chickens or other higher-order animals causes them to die. Insects such as cockroaches are less dependent on their brains for metabolic activities, and can live fo…r days or even weeks. If you cut off the chicken's head completely then it will obviously die. But sometimes people just cut off the chicken's head where the upper brain is. If the brain stem (near the neck) is left intact, the chicken could remain alive, because the brain stem basically controls the autonomic and instinctive functions, such as pumping blood and breathing. In 1945, one famous rooster survived for 18 months without most of its head. (MORE)
Nothing can survive (for long) without a head. Chickens can have a flurry of uncoordinated activity immediately after being beheaded because of random muscle contractions triggered by still-active nerves in the spine. However, there are recorded instances of chickens that DID live for some time aft…er having been decapitated. In 1945, a rooster named Mike lived for 18 months after most of his head was chopped off. His brain stem, which controls breathing, heartbeat, and other autonomic reflexes, was apparently still intact, as were major blood vessels in the neck. (MORE)
with an axe or sword dfksjefewnkjfiefiujnirn So what you are telling me is that you are going to get close enough to a crocodile to cut its head off with a sword or axe did you really think this through it will eat you
No. Henry VIII suffered ill health and died in 1547 at the age of 55.
If your head is cut off you die instantly. Your body cannot survive without your brain.
Safe because Perseus killed Medusa for a good reason. 1. Medusa is evil and Perseus is a hero. 2. Medusa killed a lot of men and women just by turning them into stones. 3. Medusa will be punished for being evil and Perseus will be rewarded for being a hero. Perseus is the hero who decapita…ted Medusa's head off her body by using his sword. Perseus is very smart and knows how to kill Medusa because he uses his shield as a reflection so that he won't look at her in the eyes just so he can see her using his shield as a mirror just by looking at it. He tricked Medusa and removed her head from her body! (MORE)
Perseus cut Medusa's head off first while he was on his way to save princess Andromeda from Cetus (cetus is also a constallation found in the night sky...he is a sea monster or a whale depending on how you look at it) the sea monster that was sent by Poseidon.....Andromeda was the sacrifice so cetus… would eat her and not the whole city....The king decided who was the sacrifice and he choose his own daughter..... what family love, right????? one of the only reason i know this is because i had to do a project on the constallation Cetus and i needed to know the myth.....

no because it severs the spinal cord which sends and receives all the messages to and from the brain
Actually, chickens can and DO run when their heads are cut off, because their nerves are still alive for a few more seconds. An instinctive response to trauma will often take place, and they are able to run a few steps. (see related question)
It really depends. The first time his head was cut off was by Asuma and his chakra blades. The second time it was blown off my Shikamaru's paper bombs.
Yes, and if venomous, it can still inject venom. There have been many instance of people being bitten by a snake head not long after they have been cut from its body. It just happened to a woman gardening. She found a snake and cut the head of a copperhead with the shovel she was using. She picked u…p the head to place it in a bag and it bit her threw the bag. She ended up with a medical bill that cost over $100,000. (MORE)
yes, cutting off a vampire's head can kill it, though i believe it also includes setting it on fire. You can also stab a vampire through the heart with a wooden stake, drain it of blood, or leave it out in the sun to burn. Stabbing a vampire through the heart with a wooden stake does not destroy i…t. (Vampires are already dead, and talking about killing vampires is an oxymoron.) The whole idea of driving a stake through a vampire is merely to pin it in its coffin or grave. This works but only for as long as the stake doesn't rot. After a few score years they become active again. Cutting off a vampire's head is considered much more effective HOWEVER some great sorcerers (who were probably vampires as well) have been known to re-assemble themselves, even after being throughly dismembered. Thoroughly burning the body seems to be the only sure solution. (MORE)
it will first start walking a round then it will hit a tree then it will die
A roach (like many insects) can often live without its head for days or even weeks. For people and higher animals, decapitation means nearly instantaneous death. For lower animals not as dependent on their brains, life functions other than eating may continue for some time after the removal of th…e head. Roaches, in particular, are noted for surviving in a headless condition. They will, however, eventually die of dehydration or starvation. (MORE)
No. As soon as the head starts to lose oxygen, the brain starts to die. Not to mention, you cannot control your body without having nerve passages, which are not wireless, so as soon as you head falls off your body will go limp.
Nihang Singhs eat jhatka meat because of their traditions. The guru allowed this tradition of jhatka to be practiced within his army and by his soldiers; it wasn't for civilians to eat. Maharaj said to them that if need be you may jhatka and eat it, not just goats and chickens ut any animal you may …find in the jungle. The nihang singhs of today still folow this tradition. When performing jhatka on a goat first the goat is bathed then japji sahib and chandi di vaar are read. One singh stands by the head of the goat and upon the final lines of chandi di vaar being read 'those who sing this divine ballad will be liberated from the realm of life and death', at this moment the goat is decapitated with one blow and the soul of the goat is liberated. The goat itself lowers it head to receive salvation. (MORE)
No but you slice down though the top half of the head. :) hope i helped.
Herod Antipas was the ruler of the province where the baptist preached, and he preached fervently against Herod having taken his brothers wife, Herodias, for his own. Herodias became most upset in the ordeal and had St. John jailed, only later to have him beheaded by way of her daughter, whom Herod …was infatuated with, and had promised anything if only she would dance for him. She then asked for, at the promting of her mother, the head of the baptist on a platter and delivered it to Herodias. (MORE)
For people, this means nearly instantaneous death. Decapitation using an ax (and later the French invention, the guillotine) has been a method of execution since ancient times. The Japanese culture is unique in that it regards beheading as an honorable death, as for warriors, under the bushido cod…e. For lower animals not as dependent on their brains, life functions other than eating may continue for some time after the removal of the head. Roaches, in particular, are noted for surviving for days or weeks. In one famous case in 1945, a rooster named Mike lived for 18 months following the removal of most of his head. Scientists suspected that his brain stem (which controls involuntary reflexes such as breathing) was not cut away, and he was sustained on a liquid diet by his owner. (MORE)
they run around for a few mins or secs because some of their nerves are still alive.
Perseus cut off medusa's head by using the sheild that Athena gave him to watch the sleeping medusa and then he cut her head off with a sword.
some people think it was done by a us college for tests to see how the brain works
After Perseus used the Helmet of Hades to sneak up on her while she slept. Were you looking for a date? Because this is a myth, not a history lesson, and dates need not apply.
The dukes best friend told the duke that giovanni painted for that giovanni had been secretly meeting the dukes wife. Therefore they beheaded giovanni which left Raphael Sanzio an orphan.
You need the Savage Strike perk on the One-Handed skill tree, you need to be using a sword, and perform a power attack while standing. This gives a 25% damage boost, with a chance of decapitating the opponent.
There is a perk in the one-handed skill tree (about leve 60 or so) that gives a chance of decapitaion when using a one-handed statding power attack. Similiarly, there is the corresponding perk in the two-handed skill tree at the same level.
