If you've ever been curious what happens to dead bodies and what people's most common last words are, then you've come to the right place.

Reader, beware!

This was today's burning question from one Redditor:

"What morbid fact do you know?"

Warning: Sensitive content ahead.


"If bodies..."

"If bodies are kept in coffins that are sealed tight enough, such as the in wall type of memorial, sometimes enough gases can build up that the body basically explodes and can spill out onto the ground."

"If you electrocute..."

"If you electrocute someone while they are submerged in water, it won't leave burn marks."

"In Formula 1..."

"In Formula 1, safety belts were not mandatory until 1972."

"Before then, drivers believed it better to be ejected in a crash, and either die instantly from a broken neck or suffer many broken bones."

"The alternative, they thought, was to be trapped and essentially cremated alive should the gas tanks ignite."

"A body..."

"A body can swell to three times its normal size especially if the person passes away in a bathtub."

"I was a paramedic..."

"Before you die, your last words could be, "I don't feel so good."

"I was a paramedic for 15 years and heard dozens of people's final words. The phrase I heard most often, possibly from half to three quarters of them, were some form of "I don't feel so good." I've also heard, "Wait, somethings wrong." "Somethings happening." "I don't feel right." "Wait, somethings wrong." "It's happening." "Oh no, Oh no."

"People feel the blood leaving their brain I think. Must be like a rush."

"She was murdered..."

"Judith Barsi was the young actress who voiced Anne-Marie in All Dogs Go to Heaven and Ducky in The Land Before Time. She was murdered at the age of 10 by her abusive father, who also killed her mother at the same time. Judith's gravestone displays Ducky's catchphrase, "Yep! Yep! Yep!"

"It is way easier..."

"It is way easier than you would expect to break someone ribs during CPR and it feels really weird. POPPOPPOPPOP like bubble wrap."

"When drilling..."

"When drilling into teeth, the smell that occurs smells like Fritos. The same thing for sawing through bone during an amputation."

"Source: Am a veterinary technician that's assisted with many tooth extractions where the tooth has to be cut in half to be properly extracted and assisted in amputations."

"There is a parasite..."

"There is a parasite called Dracun culiasis, or more commonly "Guinea worm" that can enter your leg through drinking infected water. You won't notice anything until ~1 year later, when a small portion breaks the skin to release larvae. At this point, it's a meter long."

"A. Meter. Long."

"And it has to be extracted centimeter by disgusting centimeter."

"NTDs are the stuff of nightmares."

"There's something called..."

"There's something called "Anesthesia Awareness" where of certain people go into surgery and they don't give you enough Anesthesia, it will look like you're asleep (eyes closed, not talking or moving), but the patient can still hear and feel everything that's happening, but here's the scary part. You're unable to move, speak or open your eyes. Unless they have a monitor to show your brain activity, you're stuck with having to endure the pain."

Our parents are human and they have the ability to disappoint us and devastate us like anyone else. It just hurts a little more, as we were reminded once Redditor banbidoe asked the online community,

"What's the worst thing your parents ever said to you?"

Cashiers Break Down Which Items Cause Them To Silently Judge Customers

It's human nature to have various opinions about the people we come across.

What sets us apart from heathens is that we keep our judgments to ourselves–especially when they are not of the flattering variety.

The people who probably interact with strangers the most are those who work in any type of service industry, and they should be good about keeping their mouths shut if they don't have anything nice to say about a customer or of their purchases.

People Divulge Which Instances Of The Mandela Effect Freaked Them Out The Most

The Mandela effect is when multiple people share the same, incorrect memory.

Its name stems from when paranormal researcher Fiona Broome falsely believed that the future president of South Africa, Nelson Mandela, died in prison in the 1980s.

A false memory she shared with a number of others.

Our memories have been known to deceive us, as we might frequently forget someone's name or one of our numerous online passwords.

But when we share a memory that turns out to be false with many others, convincing ourselves it wasn't the truth can be a very difficult ordeal indeed.
