A rather sudden bang distracts Roadhog
from his novel.
Dog-earing the page, he sets the worn book
down on his belly and sighs through his mask. Two years of playing bodyguard
has granted him enough experience to distinguish one bang from another.
Explosions, while outside the norm for the everyday citizen, have a surprising
array of sounds that Roadhog has become well acquainted with. If anyone cared
to ask, he’s sure he could name every type of explosive he’s heard. In fact, it
has come to the point where he could give a rough estimate on how much damage a
bomb might inflict from its noise alone, and he supposes that might be an
impressive feat if he weren’t so invested in making sure the creator of said
bomb remains in one piece.
Fortunately for him (and his boss, he must
concede), the bang does not belong to any sort of explosive.
Wheek wheek everyone! Sorry we haven’t been very active. Mom went on spring break to a warm place! She told us all about it and showed us pictures, she had a blast! On another note I haven’t been feeling to well lately, but I saw the doctor today and he says I look good and will be feeling better in no time! We love you all. - Bubbles.
well I definitely don’t agree with the people that’re slandering jin bc of it. yes, what he said was mean, but it was in the spirit of a playful game between good friends, and I trust them enough to know each other’s boundaries. while yes, physical things such a weight are touchy… we don’t know the inner-workings of their (or any of bts’) relationships, and how they truly are with each other. personally I’m looking at it from the korean cultural standpoint, rather than my own. bc while yes, I personally would never joke about someone’s weight, even in a game, it’s just something that is culturally embedded. they are blunt with certain things, including weight, there are numerous cultural videos / articles / ect on the frankness of koreans in regards to physical appearance when compared to other societies. so yes, I’m someone from the u.s, who has grown up with the idea that you don’t talk about someone’s weight, which I think, for the most part, is the polite thing to do. however I also understand that I only think that way bc I was brought up in a culture that condemns it. all of bts weren’t however, so I think the idea of demonizing jin for something he said in the context of his cultural norm that has been reinforced for the past almost twenty-five years of his life is a bit ethnocentric. I of course don’t think weight should be picked at, bc weight jokes just aren’t funny to me, but I also don’t think placing your ideals onto bts as if they’ve grown up with the etiquette of western society is the correct thing to do either. plus, this has been said a million times already, but if they’re going to call jin a pig for fun, then they should expect it back themselves, and jin even apologized in the end, even though they never do, bc again, they are friends, and we should trust them with their boundaries that we only get to see from an outsider’s perspective.
Sooo, second question! Basically, if someone was murdered, had their corpse cut in different pieces which were then seperatly placed in trash bags filled with rocks, then thrown into a lake and found after two months, what would the body look like? Sorry for being a bit specific! Anyways, hope you have a great day :)
As always I like to start with the short answer: Ever
forgotten about leftover meat in the back of the fridge for a looooong time?
Where the Tupperware looks like it is about to pop from all the built up gases
of decomposition? It’ll look like that, but with an undertone of what I can
only describe as a primordial “NO”.
Now the long answer: Humans do not like the smell of other
dead humans. Anyone discovering these
body parts, apart from those people that have been repeatedly introduced to
this stench, will likely vomit. It just is not a smell any one wants to be
Interestingly enough, being underwater appears to slow the
outward appearance of decomposition. The water, being generally cool (call it less
than 10 degrees centigrade), will act much like a refrigerator does and slow
down the decomposition.
In this paper, the researchers used piglets as human
analogs. What they found was that, essentially, the insides of the piglets were
decaying, but since only the bacteria present at death were available to
decompose the piglets, they rotted from inside out. After two months (perfect,
right?) the piglets appeared only very slightly decayed. They had overall
gained mass (from taking on water/ algae growth). These piglets were not
contained to plastic baggies though, so I would expect even less decomposition
in your scenario.
The body parts will take on a greenish or blackened
colouration (green from algae and some bacteria, black as that is usually what
colour flesh goes as it decomposes). On more delicate body parts, skin may
appear loosened or even begin to slough off the bone. Provided the torso
remains intact, there is a good chance that the internal organs remain fairly
well preserved, and may only be in the bloat phase of decomposition (google at
own risk for literal images of what this looks like. It is the best way to see
what I’m talking about though- I can only describe so much).
Being contained and underwater also prevents
carrion feeders from reaching the body parts and very effectively stops them
aiding the decomposition process. Essentially bagging the body parts and
keeping them cool will lead to only slightly decayed body parts, even after 2
months, and they will not be bags of mush and bone. More likely, they would
appear to be either in the bloat stage or the active decay stage, and not the
advanced or dry stages, as would usually be expected at 2 months time.
We hope this helps! In the future (pending follower interest/ how lazy Sherls is) we may write a longer post about the specifics of the 5 stages of decomposition.
Hestia, in the high dwellings of all, both deathless gods and men who walk on earth, you have gained an everlasting abode and highest honor: glorious is your portion and your right! For without you, mortals hold no banquet–where one does not duly pour sweet wine in offering to Hestia both first and last.
