What if people think you're dead, so they bury you. Only you "wake up" buried in the ground? Think that's ever happened? I would completely lose my mind. I've been thinking about it obsessively today. That would be my definition of hell. You'd obviously run out of air, but for how long?

I don't think that will happen anytime soon. Maybe you should hide under your bed.

Watch: Serpent and the Rainbow
From Wickipedia:
At least one report of accidental burial goes back to the 13th Century. Hundreds of instances of accidental burials were documented in the 1600s during epidemics of plague, cholera, and smallpox.[citation needed] Revivals have been triggered by dropped coffins, grave robbers, embalming, and attempted dissections. Fearing premature burial, George Washington, on his deathbed, made his servants promise not to bury him until three days after his death.[citation needed] Patients in the 1990s have been documented as accidentally being bagged, trapped in a steel box, or sent to the morgue.[1]

Count Karnice-Karnicki of Belgium patented a rescue device in 1897, which mechanically detected chest movement to trigger a flag, lamp, bell, and fresh air. Along similar lines, in Great Britain various systems were developed to save those buried alive, including breakable glass panels in the coffin lid and pulley systems which would raise flags on the surface (without air supply, as in the Italian model, this naturally would be useless without vigilant guards above ground). In 1995, an Italian coffin manufacturer introduced a model with a beeper and intercom system. These are all examples of Safety coffins.
A safety coffin or security coffin is a coffin fitted with a mechanism to prevent premature burial or allow the occupant to signal that he has been buried alive. A large number of designs for safety coffins were patented during the 18th and 19th centuries and variations on the theme are still available today
In a personal story, (related by my mom, so the veracity of it is at best questionable): My great grandfather was a Sheriff in his town and they hung a woman who was rumoured to be a witch....but was tried and executed for killing three children....Her last words were supposedly "I will come back" they had a bad winter, and graves were heaved up.....they opened her coffin to find finger nail marks on the lid and her rolled over to her stomach.

used to happen alot back in the day before people knew about the ability to live without consiousness or in a coma. Very common, actually. People were dopes back then. Read Edgar Allan Poe's "The Premature Burial". Good stuff.

Buried alive was a horror movie when I was a kid.... freaked me out.... but then again so did THE FLY... slept with my dad after that ending...


Sad thing is they are movies... MJ posted a news story about the silly african rain bramaged folks burying their kids with aids alive fucking half wits.


I believe there is a state a person can be in where he is catotonic , such a low pulse no detection... but alive and have gotten up off gurnys in the morge... and buried alive...


That is checked now i do believe in the US.

On a good side, there are stories of people waking up on Coroners and Funeral home Tables...Modern Medical science pretty much disavows it still happens although it still happens in remote areas...like South America and Africa

If I request a bullet to the brain after I die, do you think it would be carried out? This shit just got creepier. Ah wait.... FUCK YEAH! I'll be cremated! Oh fuck I'm a genious. I kinda want to know my bones will be on earth forever though, hmmmmmm.

Seriously though, can you request a bullet after death?

The second time. The second time I murdered him. You murdered him
first. He was already dead when I killed him.

So, you think it would be better to wake up in the crematory oven than it would be to wake up underground? Get it over sooner, I guess.

I guess I'd rather burn alive than be buried alive. People say burning alive would be worse, I disagree. The whole Utah miner thing freaked me out... pretty close to being buried alive, only you can move.... at least I hope they could. Actually, I hope they got smashed by a rock and died instantly.

but what if your hands and feet were bound as well and your ears were full of earwigs and your body was covered in fireants.....

There's that one episode of Lost where those two people get bit by those rare Island Spiders. The venom paralyzed them, which lasted for hours, and they were buried alive. Unable to move or speak to rely to the other Islanders that they were only paralyzed from the venom.

After seeing that I was like you, I freak out even thinking about claustrophobic situations and stuff to begin with. I actually told my mom that if I ever appear to be dead to wait a week or two before you do anything. You know, just in case.

So you imagine after you die they just roll you out of the hospital and dump you into a hole?

I think I know what to do. I'll just move to New Orleans and be buried above ground. At least that way I'll know I'm above ground, and not 6 feet deep. Maybe I could break out of the coffin.

I don't see why you can't request a bullet after death.
You'd need to ask a friend to do it, make a pact.

For instance, me and my friend have a pact to delete the other's filthiest of porn in the event. I don't need it brought up at family get togethers, "Hey, remember when we found that Shemale Clown porn in his computer" He was weird

That almost happened to Gilligan when the professor gave him some bug venom so the headhunter wouldn't make him marry his daughter. Fortunately it was an open funeral pyre not an oven, since Gilligan woke up and was ok.
