I just heard the most interesting thing on the radio today. some scientists conducted a test on people on their death bed( who agreed to it of course) and they had them on a sensitive scale and they found that the human body loses 21g at the moment of death. This seemed to happen in every trial that they conducted. So something at the moment of death weighing 21g leaves your body.

I just found this to be weird yet interesting and thought I'd share it.

I'm all for religion. But my guess would be air. The lungs no longer need to retain any air.

Have them do the study again, just this time have them all suffocated. See how much weight is lost then.

Everytime they did the test though they lost 21g exactly but people will have varying amounts of air in their lungs

Depends on what planet you are on or where you are in the universe. "Air" is a composition of different elements, so its composition (and thus, weight) is environment dependent.

Anyone here try Suse? I'm considering putting it on my laptop. I currently have 4gb of RAM in it.

Dear girl that I like. Why do you have to bring your douchebag friend with you everywhere. He obviously just wants to get in your pants.
