It wasn't me. You can't prove anything.


I wonder

When cutting a throat, would it be less time to unconsciousness to slice the left side of the neck or the right side?

The left side bring blood to the brain from the heart. There are check valves in the arteries to try to prevent back flow. Stopping that flow would cause loss of consciousness as quickly as the blood in the head lost oxygen.

The right would allow blood to flow out of the head much faster than the heart could ever hope to replace it. Loss of consciousness might happen more quickly because even though blood is coming from the heart, it is not at enough pressure to feed the brain at all before running out of the body.

I wonder which it is. What kind of doctor/scientist would know?
