Nah I don't reckon, you'd be oblivious before your brain had time to register anything. Like on Sopranos (without elaborating/spoiling) when Paulie or someone says how you don't even hear the gun fire when you get shot in the head.


They've done experiments on people who are beheaded - they were able to communicate with blinks for a surprising amount of time post beheading...

A bullet in the head is very different, but you'd hope it got the right spot.

I wonder how they do that politely - 'OK we're gonna cut your head off for this experiment, now once we're done with that try blinking at us'.

And what sort of questions do they ask of the head? 'OK does your neck hurt?' blink once for no, twice for somewhat, three times for a lot''?

"Do you realise that we just cut your head off?"
"Do you still feel tough, Mr. Criminal/French monarch?"
"Would you like to watch me shit down your neck?" ...and then... "Do you still want me to reattach your head?"

But you'd probably have to try to find out for sure.

I remember a couple years ago when that kid got decapitated whilst standing on a double-decker bus going under a bridge somewhere in AK.. A lot of the witnesses who were also on the bus (albeit probably as toasted as the guy who got hit) said his head was smiling and blinking for a few seconds as it was rolling around the floor.

I've seen that GTR round town, along with a dark grey one. Haven't seen any others.

They're a big car, bigger than I was expecting
