Welcome to random shower thoughts w/kenarmy. I'll be updating frequently  :spin:

- How far back do bald people shave their heads?? Do they remember their hair boundary and stop there?
- Do people with one eye blink or wink?
- How do vampires get ready if they can't see themselves in mirrors?
- US 98 used to be shorter than US 57... and it was out of grid as well..
- In the future, we will probably try to remove filters from pictures.
- US 278 is longer than US 80.. that's crazy.
- You have to fake being sleep in order to sleep
- Sharks get a week, but mothers only get a day
- The toys in Toy Story had to watch Andy um.. mess with himself.. when he got older
- Some people in this forum are dead..
- Do dogs have names for us?
- During childhood, we are told that jokes about the genital areas are adult content, but once we become adults, these jokes are considered childish.
- We could mount cameras on garbage trucks and get an updated google maps.
- This could possibly be the last thing you read, and you won't know if it is unless you finish reading it.
- How long is now?
- oops, i put this on the wrong part of the forum
- you're reading this
- you won't know the last time someone says your name..

But are we free?  Are we all just memes for cargo ships?

Probably by driving while drowsy?

But even if a driver was fake-sleeping and accidentally fell asleep, that doesn't prove that you have to fake sleep in order to fall asleep for real. The vast majority of sleeping occurs in bed or elsewhere besides behind the wheel.

Nonetheless it definitely is a circumstance where there is documentation that people weren't faking it when they fell asleep.

OK, so I don't think we're disagreeing then... we're both disagreeing with the OP.

Sure you can, all you have to do is be declared legally dead and be revived.  Lots of people have been through something like that although I wouldn't call it common.

If you're clinically dead, you're usually actually dead.

Theoretically that shouldn't mean they are dead, since dead means the state of no longer being alive. If there are still functions of the body (heart, brain) working they are not dead. But I'm not a scientist so what do I know.

Being declared clinically dead is generally considered actual death.  If there was no intervention from said point all life functions would cease.  Essentially all any of us are a collection of cells that are fighting to maintain living.  Once that is no longer possible then you are essentially dead.  So in theory, if you were revived somehow by a physician past that point of what would be normally the point of no return you could tell others what your experiences were in dying.

What is the point of flammable and inflammable when literally everything burns if heated enough?
