Hey I found a English dictionary. http://www.peevish.co.uk/slang/t.htm

I will not be asking my kids to do that! Of course if I'm dead it wouldn't work anyway.

All this talk of proper disposal of one's remains just reminded me of The Big Lebowski.

Yes, after a few hours, but then we loosen up again.  If you're fresh, you're still pliable.  I think it takes a few hours for rigor mortis to set in, then several hours or more later it abates.

There is much debate as to when life "begins"... is it at conception? a few days after.. at one's exiting of the womb etc...   But there is also debate as to when one is actually "dead." Is it when your heart stops? When your brainwaves cease? Is it when breathing ceases? etc...

In order to define when each of these events occur, one must also have a firm definition of what "alive" actually means.

Differing medical and political views of when someone is really dead are prevalent throughout the world.

Rigor Mortis is the temporary fixation of muscle tissues brought on by the ......   oh heck... isn't this post about valve adjustment????

So, picture yourself locked in a very small room, not much bigger than your body, with a small supply of food and air to breathe, but nowhere is a toilet to be seen. You can eat your food until it runs out and starve to "death", and breathe until you run out of air and asphyxiate, and poop until you have no space to poop anymore.  This is basically what happens to your individual cells in your body once circulation ceases.  

You = a single cell, say perhaps a muscle cell.
Your very small room  = the space your cell occupies plus a bit of interstitial fluids surrounding you.
Your food = nutrients brought to you by blood circulation
Your air to breathe  = brought to you in the blood that feeds you and what you exhale is taken away by the blood too.
Your toilet = your interstitial fluids are the septic system, the plumbing is your lymphatic system.
Your poop = not removed as your lymphatic system which drains into your blood, and gets filtered out by the liver and kidneys isn't running anymore. The poop you as a cell produce causes your cell and your neighbours to all stiffen up for lack of space. But then after a while of this, someone comes along, namely digestive enzymes, and change your poop and also eat your cell walls allowing you to relax.

While you are stuck in this room, the reason you, as a cell, are not receiving proper food, air and toilet facilities is because your heart has stopped.   But wait... your heart stopped? You stopped breathing?   But as a cell.... you are still alive... but you've been pronounced as "dead"

See the confusion?

Oh, and to bring this back on topic.... There are valves in the heart.  ;)  Mitral, tricuspid, pulmonary and aortic... doctors are often required to adjust these valves if not in tolerance. :D

Ha ha! I am a fan of science but know very little of it. I do remember reading once that there is more of "you" that is bacteria than what we think of as "you". So once those cells die, the bacteria that is you takes over. Hey! Immortality. Old bikers never die, they just get RE-cycled.  ;D

Your hair and fingernails grow for several days after you die.  Before embalming corpses had to be shaved each day before wakes.  All this seems like common knowledge I've picked up along the way, no problem talking about it, etc. but those coffins weird me out.  Unless you're a pharaoh start decomposing already!

After death, the human body dehydrates, causing the skin shrink back, which exposes the part of the nails and hair that was under the skin, causing them to simply appear to grow.

On the eighth day God created the C5, and it was better looking than anything on the planet.

I remember Hunter S. Thompson wanted to be shot into space. In the end I think they blew him out of a cannon. Good end for a Bulleteer!

This is so true - we are constantly being REcycled, even while reading this or writing this !  We re-create some of 'me' as we lose some of 'me' in this recycling process - but with time the first part becomes smaller and smaller.  

This physical body is not only habitat of 'me' but of millions of other living beings (bacteria, microorganisms etc.) that call it 'home' or 'mine'.  This cycle of birth of cells, organs and death of the same cells, organs continues and every few days or few weeks or months the cells or organs are completely replaced !  Miracle - what we call life.  One day this collection of cells - what we call 'I' or 'me' - disintegrates and becomes part of others 'collections of cells' - what we call 'you'.  Then there is no 'you'.

What returns from the crematorium that is labled with your name as being you, was never alive in the first place. As cremated remains, you get minerals, trace metals and casket materials back, your flesh and bones are all gone. The physical body you call you isn't there.

To me, the human body is a Christmas present. A present from Christ. The gift is inside. When you die, Christ takes the gift back to Him. As a funeral director, Families entrust me with the wrapping paper that the Gift came in. I take that wrapping paper, straighten it out, clean it up and position it in a casket so that families and friends can come to see the Christmas present to remember the Gift that was inside.

Oh, and metal caskets also have valves too...   If the casket is travelling in a manner that the air pressure difference is great enough, such as via aircraft, there is a screw type valve that can be opened to equalize the pressure. If the pressure difference is too great, the lid can collapse or buckle. So... ya.. valves..    :)
