This is a question Have you ever seen a dead body?

How did you feel?
Upset? Traumatised? Relieved? Like poking it with a stick?

Being on the Fire Department...
I've seen a few bodies. As they say, you never forget your first.

We were toned out for a MVA (Motor Vehicle Accident) with entrapment. We pulled up on scene to a paramedic telling us, "It's pretty gruesome boys. The girl's in bad shape and the gentleman is dead."

Apparently this gentleman had decided a high speed joyride without a seatbelt and fueled by gin was a fantastic way to spend a tuesday evening. He was ejected from the vehicle. Well, at least his head was.

Instant decapitation.

It could be that he was a year behind me in school, it could be that I had shared a conversation or two with him, but I'll never forget that night.

Come to think of it, it was probably when my captain turned to me without missing a beat and said, "We can rebuild him, we have the technology."

I'll show myself out...
