A waxy substance called “adipocere” may be formed during the decay process that covers the entire body. It helps preserve the body and can keep it fresh (By fresh we don’t mean like just out of the shower fresh) for several years. Scientists and archeologists find it extremely useful because it gives them the ability to autopsy bodies that have been buried for a long time. What we here at Club Giggle wish to know is…  why would you want that job?


 2 – Dead Still

Rigor mortis, the stiffening of the body after death, a process that forces the body’s muscles to contract and become stiff. Rigor mortis affects small muscles before larger ones and begins about two hours after death. After all the muscles have contracted, rigor mortis lasts between 36 and 48 hours, after which the body reverses the process and returns to a limp state. And they say call your doctor if you have an erection lasting longer than 4 hours.


3 – Lividity

Lividity is when the body’s remaining blood is no longer pumped through the veins after the heart has stopped. This causes the blood settle because of gravity and creates dark purple spots in those areas Lividity, also called Livor Mortis or Post Mortem Hypostasis, begins showing within 30 minutes of the heart stopping and can last up to 12 hours. So to sum it up. after you die you get the Goth look for 12 hours.


4 – Bloat

Dead bodies swell up about four days after death in a stage called “bloat.” This is caused by a buildup of gasses and liquids. Warm weather increases the rate of swelling while cold weather slows it down. Summer … Winter… either way it is still gross.


5 –  Bacteria

Your body is filled with bacteria, and as soon as you die, it begins eating you. After death, microbes start in the intestines and begin eating the body from the inside out. That’s just great to know we have tiny monsters waiting to eat us. It has to be a really good friend who will pour bleach up your ass after you died to kill them so you don’t end up as a meal.
