So, fact or fiction? Am I the joke this time?
I don’t doubt for a moment that massive thoracic trauma suffered by a motorcyclist crashing at 100mph could somehow result in the heart exiting the thorax, but I really highly doubt that deceleration forces alone would do it.

Not just deceleration, combined with a collision with a vehicle etc.

Not only that, but to find the heart "in the far side post" of the other vehicle?

Izzit true that stimulating the vagus nerve will slow the heart, and cause an uncontrollable urge to gamble?
