Quiz needs a question about seeing dead bodies and/or severed body parts. Until that time, most people really don't personally comprehend that they have a finite existence as an individual.

G.S. a question about dead bodies and various body parts scattered about would be a good question. But usually only Combat Veterans get the opportunity to See and Smell this fact of war. Usually the only way a Civilian gets even close is a traffic or industrial accident,so not too many know just how finite they really are.

When a man gets shot in the head at point blank range the hair on the head Stands Up at the same time that the Bone and Gray Matter are exiting from the other side of the Skull, is that what you refer to,I hope not to ever see that again,
odds are against it.

D308,

Yes, other than vets and professionals (from LEOs to ER docs), death and major injury is hidden from public view in America. People don't even go to nursing homes and see the slow death of their own relatives.

I do not consider myself a secondhand expert in death, dying, hospice, etc. and have far less exposure to it than many other professionals I know, but I question how well many people who supposedly consider themselves "prepared" as per that quiz could handle the psychological/spiritual aftereffects of death if it became a regular visitor at their door.

I think it would take a couple of generations of hands-on hard times to develop a greater understanding of death and appreciation of life in the children of our current modern culture.
