How about burned to a crisp?
How about washing up on shore, bloated beyond recognition?
How about completely eviscerated? (I love that word)
How about if your heart is on your sleeve…literally?
How about if your brain is up your ass…literally?
How about i fyou still have your head on your body, but you only have half a body?
I can think of many more ways in which a person is unmistakably, unequivocally dead.
I just watched a show on Discovery about how in the old days people were completely paranoid about being buried alive, appaarantly with good cause since there were way too many stories of people “waking up” from being dead just as the casket was about to be lowered into the ground, or pert near. There were a number of coffins which had Rube Goldberg-ish contraptions designed to let the possibly undead signla that they were alive after they’d been put in the ground.
All very creepy if your’e asking me.
