If it's possible at all, it's probably something to do with nerves.  ???

From a medical perspective, the moment the blade severs the spinal cord (which is one of the first things the blade strikes) you loose consciousness and you're off! :)

So the blinking would only be that just a sort of "mechanical" thing!

I understand that although the head is seperated from the body, it still has an oxygen supply. some people postulate that there is still concious thought due to the synapses still firing. This can last upwards of a minute....is this an urban myth ???

With all my soul... I hope so !

But, Kimberly, should you be right... what is a minute when you are about to die... Has anybody seen "Jacob's ladder" ? A minute may last for an eternity...  :o

Ive heard that too Kimberly. My Dad once read a reliable story of how an executioner would ask his victims if they wouldn't mind blinking, if they were able to, once they were dacapitated and apparently many of them did.... :-/

Some people say it's just the nerves though..

I have also see chickens as coquelicot did. But once I saw one to pass over an obstacle flying (as far as these animals can fly). It's absolutely true, I swear. I remember it perfectly, we were childs and laughted on it. Certainly it lasted few than a minute, fortunately. Have you seen the film "Aguirre o la cólera de Dios"? Off topic, but a man is counting something: 7, 8, 9. suddenly he is beheaded by a sword, the head separated on the flour, open eyes, says: ten. Unforgetable :o

In the film "Carry on Don't Lose Your Head", the Duke de Pomfritt is about to be guillotined when a letter arrives for him. "Just put it in the basket", he says coolly, "I'll read it later".

Yes, this is the cue for the next joke. The executioner pulls the rope and the blade jams. The stupid aristocrat then helpfully points out that there is a small piece of wood which is blocking the groove....... ::)
