    Orba....I do understand your fears and I understand probably better than an average person how overwhelming a fear can be, so I can only tell you the advice I've been given - you need someone to set your fears back to proportion, before you worry about others.

    I did some research online and found that not all deaths are investigated by the coroner, ie, not all corpses have autopsy performed on them.



    Pray tell, if they don't just "fill out a report then leave grandma on the couch", what is it that they do?
    I have no idea, everytime i killed someone they investigated. I mean, whoops.

    Now these are some ideas I like!
    Although I can imagine a flag or bell with a cord being cheaper than to bury everybody with a cellphone ^^

    What, has eating the corpse suddenly gone out of fashion? What else have I missed?

    Re: Help! I have tephephobia--the fear of being buried alive!

    Guys I kind of have a morbid question. In some cultures, it is customary to bore a small hole in the coffin prior to it being covered in dirt. I am wondering, how much air is allowed in the coffin? I am guessing there probably isn't much air because there is scarcely any air in packed soil typically found in a grave site, although I could be wrong. The reason I ask this question is because I want to find out how long a prematurely buried person would have to suffer.

    In a typical sealed coffin, air runs out in about 1 to 2 hours. Thanks.

    Hm, let's do some math, you breath on average 400-500 litres of air per hour, the average coffin (empty) is about 450 litres, so suprisingly, that sounds about right... (not questioning your knowledge, it just surprises me that you could breath for that long in such a small box)

    Thanks for the reply but I wasn't asking about how long a person could survive in a sealed coffin. I was asking how long a person can live in a coffin that has holes drilled into it. In other words, the coffin is connected to the soil surrounding it.

    I am guessing it is probably not much different from when the coffin is sealed, because there isn't much air in packed soil. Although I could be wrong. Do you know the answer? Anybody has the answer?
