This is a fake. she would be screaming first of all, then she would be shooting blood from the carotid arteries, and it would take hours with a small pocket knife like that!
If you really watch the video you can see blood shooting out of her! Only slightly at first but thosem last few slices you literally see the blood spurt out of the wound and gush at the moment immediately after the slice he is making!!!
And by the way he slced her vocal chords on the first cut with her esophagus you moron!! Some countries and cultures believe humility is better than humiliaion! And beyond that they could e been threatening far worse behind the camera!! (Not saying this is what actually happened but as a “for instsnce”) If a person had a knife to your baby’s throat, would you A) allow them to murder your infant child or B) bite the bullet(or knife) and sacrifice yourself for them.
Are you blind how can you say its fake didn’t you see her face and she was shooting blood his really piece of evil.
Dude they can kill you for talking bad to them, they are not heartless they are just taught to be like that and it might be true that the dug lords do have a leadership of Mexico
Los zetas is rapidly growing, and now outnumbers Mexico army!! America has a HUGE demand for drugs! And Los zetas is fighting for control of the drug shipment. America is the gangs biggest customer
carnal el chapo nada mas le esta dando chance wey, el chapo cuando quiera se los chinga y lo hace porqueles conviene pendejooo lo zetas son cualquier cosa la verdad.
Pues el Chapo es muy respetado en cualquier lado. Yo tuve el honor de conocerlo en Veracruz puerto y es una persona muy amable. Y si lo que dices es verdad entonces tiene que hacer algo antes de que se salga de control esto, porque hasta donde se, hay gente de esa incluso en Rusia y China.
Man sometimes im lucky im a mexican so i not if i ever get in trouble with them i wont be the first to get beaten, they might even free me if im lucky
That’s silly I guess you need to see all the cartel vids and the Bosnian death squad ones and the chainsaw vid so you can decensitize a bit being to sensitive is harmfl cause life isnt gonna get better most likely this stuff warms my heart. People deserve horror it’s when it’s done to animals I get uppity. They are truly innocent those fucking third world dildos are a dime a dozen anyway and they will never make positive contributions to society so I enjoy watching them grind them selves into mince meat. The fucking guy had a mask why? Like any one knows the meat isn’t gonna know who her loving husband is? It just proves all the more the worth of certain ethnic groups. Sure us crackers are savage too but not like that all the time. Send them a nuke and the vids will cease the main exports are meth weed blow guns and illegals. No massive oil for Cheney and the real govt to want or we would be there by now. I’m not racist but to have a better society and healthy planet emerging third world toilets need to be turned to ash pollution will drop dramatically and drug murders would just be archives we can watch at Xmas and laugh and laugh
What the fuck is wrong with you? No one deserves this shit. You are just lucky, you could have been born in a Third World country. So shut the fuck up.
What’s wrong with me? A lot but that’s a whole other can of worms. People are a fucking virus myself included. These cartel guys are truly humanity at its base nature. I wish one could get away with that in the states. There are tons of talking monkeys to take the place of the ones that get killed. I can’t believe people get weepy over this shit. Combat in Bosnia taught me how cheap life really is you people need to care less about random dead fucks and life will be easier. This shit has been done since the dawn of us roaches but now days we get to see it in high deff. I love it.
You and all who think like you disgusting scum bags all need to go and live on a island. That way you can all kill, rape and torture each other. This world would be a much better place with out you low life’s in it. Do any of you who like this video have a family. I highly doubt it because your to messed up to marry. Forget the island, if killing another human interest you. JUST KILL YOURSELVES.
you are an example of a person impossible to be called human, just like the people killing people all around the world and not only here in mexico. Its really sad to see these kind of attitudes in times where there is so much happening around the globe, especially for the younger population and people who are trying to change things and really make a difference. but NEVER LOSE HOPE PEOPLE! hopefully these are only a few stupid enough to follow the fewer.
Hey, there’s all kinds of attitudes in people of any place. There are honest people in Third World, who work and think of ways for global inprovement. And of coruse, there are drug addicts, lazy, corrupted and polluting people in the First World, who, by the way, consume the products that are fabricated in poor countries, who have to deal directly with all the consequences of this. But we all get to suffer in the end, everything is related my friend, you cannot cut off a part of society just like that. And by saying things like this, you encourage hate and racism, It a lazy posture the one you asume, by thinking that it will be enough to kill a part of the problem, don’t you realize that?
I think that should b your head he holds mr Paul van dick it’s people with your mentality that brings out the worst in a human
I agree 100% this is exactly what humans do to animals so they deserve to feel the pain they release on innocent animals.
Because the people that are dying have done it to an animal…which most probably haven’t…ur as fucked as the other guy…ppl need to wipe out U heartless creeps
That’s bullshit…a human life is far more valuable than any damn animal and not that animals deserve it either but damn!
“It just proves all the more the worth of certain ethnic groups” how is it when a white person does something wrong is an individual problem yet when a minority does is a racial problem. Dont judge a whole race. your life isnt anymore value over anyone elses.its because of people like you with your mindset that have this world the way it is. And dont say your nit a racist when everything you said contradicts it. Your a sick bastard if you can laugh at this, and I hope you never reproduce, then surly this world is doomed.
the world is already doomed. worrying is like re arranging deck chairs on the titanic. its pointless. these poor diluted humanitarians have their heads in the sand. if you want to worry and be weepy over something learn about all the missing plutonium and other radioactive goodies that went missing from the former soviet union. wow do you think terrorists might have it. what comes next is gonna be true horror that makes these cartel killers look like hippies. and to the people that cry fake fuck do you think these guys have a high end video editing suite and software in that shed in the background? or a staff of experts making movie prop heads. there are no cuts visible it is one shot throughout. ive seen tons of execution vids and pictures and common sense dictates this is real. if that isnt enough logic for you than answer this what reason would they have to make a vid like this? its not gonna pull add revenue on youtube. it seems like alot of you just cant except that there are real monsters out there.
U are a sick individual, no one deserves that whether it be a 3rd world county or not! I agree people shouldn’t be to desensitized but seriously this shit gets u off. Go crawl into a hole, what if this was your daughter, sister, mother, cousin… Have the same theory no u sick bastard!
Is having your head shoved up your fucking ass a genetic disorder or a birth defect? I cannot imagine someone spewing this much shit unless there is something wrong with you!!!!! Your absolute ignorance of culture and humanity is, frankly, appalling! If you were the spokesperson of the average American I would kill you first then kill myself for having my thought and ideas clumped with yours, you’re a small yet significant part of why other countries Hate us!!!!!
throw this guys in jail!
I love it bitches deserve it!!!! Lol
@ron, nog niet zo lang uit de luiers?
If this is real why isn’t she fighting back?? The pain would be more then anyone could bare..Nasty but speculative…
It appears as if this dead woman’s husband is a part of some sort of gang. I come to this hypothesis as this was probably an accomplice member filming the beheading. Most gangs operate no differently from old-school mafias, in short, you don’t mess with a gang or mafia unless you have a very sincere death wish. That being said, her husband & his accomplices deemed her act of marriage infidelity as “crossing the line” & that she would pay for it with her life. There are a couple of reasons why I can see she isn’t fighting back,
Reason 1 – Hopelessness: Knowing she “crossed the line” in the eyes of her husband & his accomplices, she knew they would only run her down if she tried to get up & run or they’d all jump in & hold her still as he executes her. Hopeless knowing there was nothing she could do or say that would allow her to live.
Reason 2 – A Daze: Perhaps he either drugged her up heavily as to make her too loopy to put up a fight or beat her/concussed her into a very dazed state. Judging by the video she doesn’t seem to look all there before he took the knife to her neck, so I’d venture to guess either drugged up, concussed or a combination thereof.
Yes, one would think the pain would be far too great to bear & she would flail or scream, but one must keep in mind everything medical science involved here. First of all, once he slices through her throat she will no longer be able to scream, especially if he sliced her voice-box in the process. Second, as he continues slicing he will cut the major blood vessels to & from her heart & brain, plus eventually her spinal cord & brain stem which will make any attempts to move her body impossible. The neck portion of the spinal cord is far more fragile than the main spine, hence it can break more easily, little difficulty to cut through. Finally, her eyes continued to move after decapitation because it’s fairly common for the head to survive a short time once severed from the body. That only lasts until what little blood left in the brain bleeds out, then the brain & head die. Back in the French Revolution days, after the guillotine sliced off a person’s head, the head would live briefly after the beheading. Graphic indeed, but the medical science truth.
They are from the gang los zetas
This is very wrong…
Txkeeper56 has very valid points
How can she fight back with her hands tied behind her back????? Duhhhhhh
I know her hand were bound behind her, but still the fact she wasn’t flailing/kicking her legs or screaming goes back to my points.
It is called resignation.. She knows she is going to die days before. There is nothing left for her to do.
lol right thy fuckn dumb
Not only hands my friend her legs was also tied.
Because he cut her jugglar (vain in her neck), which killed her instantly, and the reason why she was still scwinting (moving her face) was because he cut nerves which then give her a spazum, thats my opinion
Cutting a jugular does not kill someone instantly
As fake as it be, its not. This was done by the los zetas gang. They are actually not a gang but a group of deserters of the Mexican military. They actually are so crazy and military made that they are hired by the cartels.
she was killed instantly when he hit the wrong vein thats why she wasnt screaming
Its not real, its faked, its a dummy. While there is something that looks like blood, there simply isn`t enough, it would be everywhere. Of course, I am not saying this does not happen, but this is a fake.
She’s not fighting back because she’s most likely been drugged to not fight back. Obviously.
As far as I know, if you fight back they will torture you, and kill your relatives. It´s a nasty gang boss. Believe me, we are so scared in my country because of this fucks
It cant be real
Im pretty sure it aint….NO i am posetive it aint
Sad thing is. It is real. Here in Mexico humans are just like insects. This executions are happening all over the country. And if you dare to fight back, they will torture you and kill all your relatives. And if your country doesn´t legalize weed soon, you will have as many of these guys over there, that not even your country will be able to control them. Either you stop smoking or legalize it.
I have several times seen bodies of people on the streets and even baby bodies stuffed with weed to cross the border. So think twice before you smoke because you might as well be provoking your own infestation in your country. Currently there are gang members of this very group in Russia, China, India, etc. They want to take over the drug market and they aren´t going to stop for anything. The first american baby that you see dying will be bell ringing you to do something about it
looks pretty nasty if you ask me…..how are her eyes still moving?????
The brain remains alive breefly after decapitation, until there is no more blood left in it. After a few seconds it dies.
Her eyes are still moving because your bodies nerves keep running after you die. Just like a twitching leg on a killed bug. I would believe this. She does seem to resist, but often, average people go into shock when they are about to die, so she may have froze up. If she really had the will to live and didn’t go into shock, she would have fought back. As an example, most people give up and die when they get shot, but in reality you have around 10 seconds to live even if your chest gets blown out, so in that 10 seconds you could fight back. But, most people mentally give up and just die, like this poor lady. Moral of the story: Never mentally give up, and don’t cheat on your spouse!
There’s no moral to anything involving murder. And if someone wants to cheat, pack your crybaby bags and move on. The woman already gave him 15 of her best years. Both their genitals probably clocked out and retired after 7. Move the hell on. Now that lowlife is in jail, trying to let his son take the blame. Small balls syndrome – can’t handle life like a quiet warrior, always needing the applause of an audience.
his head need to be chopped off
that’s WHAT YOU BITCHES GET!!!! STOP PLAYING WITH NIGGAS HEARTS OR THEY’LL CUT YOUR WHOREISH HEAD OFF LMFAO!!!!!! ALL WOMEN NEED TO SEE THIS!!!!
you’re sick. i hope that the day you get caught cheating, someone cuts off your dick and shoves it in your mouth as they laugh and walk away. sick bastard.
Your grand daddy was hung for being a stupid nigger and all y’all saw what happened to stupid niggers, yet you kept on being stupid fucking niggers. Even our “black” president was too ashamed to come out of a black twat. Come on over to Texas, boy! We’ll show ya real good what a decapitation looks like! Film it real good and not on some shitty flip phone that these wetbacks used. And I’ll say to all the niggers, “ALL APES NEED TO SEE THIS!!!!”

How you get into a one on one fight with mike tyson. He’ll knock your ugly pig imbred face in two three seconds.
You are such a RACIST idiotic closed minded person. People like u make me sick. You thing you are better than AFRICAN AMERICANS really?& how dare you call someone stupid because of there nationality .honestly your the only stupid on here. Bet you feel pretty stupid know. & they where Mexican you dumb asshole …….your welcome
This argument is really racist and childish! And besides anyone with an actual IQ would have learned how the races descended which was the Native Americans- Hispanics- Islanders- Africans- Europeans. You probably think I’m lying but if you go back centuries into your ancestry, you’ve got African in your blood. So how do you have the nerve to be racist????
That’s actually not even close to how races descended!
Hank. U need help. Obviously u don’t know God cause if u did u wouldn’t say such. U will have ur day at judgement Hun! All of u ignorant fools will
Your mammy is a ape. Get a life or better yet, kill yourself.
Hank you are one ignorant son of a bitch. Probably some skin head with a small dick!!!
Wow…it’s so many wanna be bad mofos talking big…on the Internet! That is soooo funny to me cause if a real nigga was in ur face Mr whitey wouldn’t have nothing to say. Y’all don’t do crap in TX!
Been burned boy, oh well what comes around goes around, they do things alot diffently overseas and ive watched this few times and link you all shit.:-)
I don’t find that shit funny…AT ALL -_- childish ass
your fucking sick you nasty asshole
so do all trifling ass men you must be a fucking third world retard to uphold thIs IT’S A SHAME that your mother fucked her brother and made you but if this is the kind of living you prefer then take your ass over there with them and keep that mentally retarded sperm away from american girls “Playing with niggas hearts” bitch please how many women have you hurt BITCH?!! AND AS MANY WOMEN HAVE BEEN HURT ALSO SO LET’S SAY FOR EVERY MAN THAT HURT WOMEN i WOULD TIE HIM TO A CHAIR AND LET MALNOURISHED RABID PIT BULLS HAVE A GO AT HIS BALLS BEFORE I CUT HIS HEAD OFF SHHIIID WOMEN CAN BE JUST AS VICIOUS TOO!!! YOU STUPID INBRED BITCH!!!!!
You are scum and need to have your balls fed to you!!
I agree. As a man , I was horrified to see this because like many, I thought it was fake. I am scared to even greet Mexican women if this is how their jackass husbands will react! I couldn’t function after watching that and to think this video is being passed around!
Yes I would gladly do Penectomy to this Mexican idiot. I do believe they both cheated so why is his head still on top of his body ?
Hey link, here’s an idea how about we have your mama watch this and when she’s all done watching she should cut off your man hood and post the video on this website so we all can LMFAO!!! Guess you get cheated on a lot, hell with that mentality women should mess with your heart and cheat CAUSE you are low life scum sucking the humanity out of this world.
PS: your mom had no idea what a big, no enormous mistake she was making when she gave birth to you. Say hi to the next women who cheats on u for me.
Killing, hurting are just as immoral as cheating. You can’t make a right with wrongs. The world will never be in peace if everybody went out to get even and displaying acts of violence like this will not prevent the world of cheaters or murderers or assholes in general. Violence never made a difference for the better, it only and will always lead to destruction. When are humans going to learn and accept this? When we become extinct? what have we to teach our children?
Man’s courage and strength does not come from violence, it comes from discipline.
I CAN NOT BELIEVE THAT SHIT U FIND ON THE NET!
its fake, its not that easy to chop off the head with a shaving blade !!
I agree Rohit iv’e seen many live stock from pig to a goat get there head cut off and they really have to hack the spinal cord with a few whacks ,so yes I have my doubts
Human heads is not the same as pigs and goats, stupid.
Wow hank you seriously have a problem. FYI Obama wasn’t too ashamed to come out of a black twat. His white mom just couldn’t get enough of that black dick. Probably like your mom your grandmother and your great grandmother. So instead of hating how about you and your little small dick white friends get a penis pump and get on with life.
You trying to insinuate white men have small dicks lol.
She looked so spaced out and doped up, she hardly knew what was even happening. A normal person would have been screaming in terror. At least she was majorly sedated on heroine or something to that degree…
It’s not fale hit. Hit bestgore.com and you find many heads coming off courtesy of mexicans and muslims. The two most ruthless species on the planet.
And this is why I will NEVER go to Mexico again !!
I watched this video its an atrocity..its sick and in my opinion her hubby was part of drug cartel.Again I believe this video is real obviously he is s boss for his own 15 year old son watches and doesn’t cry out for his mother to help her tells me this man is head of organization…he’s sick the only thing that makes me wonder different is why he called police afterwards saying …I just killed my wife cartels don’t usually turn themselves in…but idk its just sick and I wish someone could translate what he is saying in video
Cheaters are putrid filth, human refuse, and none of their weak-willed, half-hearted contrition will elicit anything more than a brief moment of sympathy from me. Murder is morally reprehensible on a fundamental level, but at least the victim finds peace in death. Betrayal is a murder of the soul, and forces the victim to live on while dead inside, in the hopes they will one day manage to find some degree of peace and healing. It is tantamount to emotional abuse. Perhaps were they to spend months or years of their life with pain as their constant companion, every breath and every waking moment serving as a reminder of the time their life was ripped apart, only then could they ever understand. At least in death, she cannot visit this horror on another innocent. Sadly, there are far too many emotionally abusive people alive – whether they are simply unfaithful or actively manipulative – and we don’t have a hope in hell of weeding them all out. And while ever they live, we cannot hope to heal society. Therefore, please excuse me if I shed nary a tear in light of this sad event. Nothing of value was lost.
All animals on this planet cheat that is how they propagate humans are the only creatures who make up excuses to take other human lives and they use the religious crutch to justify the morally reprehensible crime.Until the planet dies and no more humans survive, I am afraid stupidity will always be comited by stupid people who say they are smart
There is also a large number of animals that kill, personally i think killing someone for cheating is fucked up just fuck a member of her family or upload the pictures she sent you to nakedsluts.com
Are you serious???
Please, please go to a psihiatric control now!
If someone is cheating on you, it means that they did not love you and they are probably to coward to tell the truth.
Best thing to do is to move one, get a life and enjoy what you have. It just wasn’t meant to be.
But is better for her to be dead???? Serios???
The person I wanted to marry cheated on me. It was bad, I had a broken heart, I cried a while and after that moved on.
So stop whining and move on.
She was human, someone’s mother, someone’s daughter, someone’s first love, someone’d friend and probably someone’ s love of his life, so yeah, something valuable was lost…
I don’t know who she wad, but she did not deserve to die like this
No one can make you dead inside after leaving you or cheating on you except you. You were already dead before this union if you feel you have to kill someone if they leave or cheat on you. There is a lack of self love and ignorance when someone feels they need to murder and can’t move on…especially in these deprived and destitute areas of the country. A nary tear would be senseless but the lack for the desire of common decency is what I question.
It blows my mind that people who think like you can’t figure out why they get cheated on. Listen to yourself. Once a person figures out who u r as a person they realize that it’s time to find someone normal. Not everyone who’s been cheated on thinks like you. I cried all my tears and thanked god that I am strong enough to over come anyone that hurts me and moved on to find the love of my life. You on the other hand think beheading someone is normal??? Do any of you have family? U R SICK! go get help.
I am with you 100%. I think very similar, I live by a code of purity and honor. This world has too much evil in it that needs to be put away. Believe me, that woman’s death meant nothing, there’s much worse than her. Who are you, by the way???
Hello everyone my name is Cindy John, i just want to share my experience and testimony here.. i was married for 7 years to my husband and all of a sudden, another woman came into the picture he started hating me and he was abusive. but i still loved him with all my heart and wanted him at all cost then he filed for divorce my whole life was turning apart and i didn’t know what to do he moved out of the house and abandoned the kids that we have, so someone told me about trying spiritual means to get my husband back and introduced me to a spell caster name firstname.lastname@example.org. so i decided to try it reluctantly. although i didn’t believe in all those things then when he did the special prayers and spell, after 2 days, my husband came back and was pleading for my forgiveness that he had realized his mistakes I just couldn’t believe it anyway we are back together now and we are happy in case anyone needs this man, his email address email@example.com his spells is for a better life.
That’s actually really and it’s a Mexican cartel known for killing torturing innocent women and kids .. It’s a war in drugs , sad but it happens everyday
FUCK ZETAS! DEATH TO ZETAS!!!
At one time in history, decapitation was one of the preferred methods of execution, in part thanks to the guillotine. Although many countries that execute criminals have dispatched with the method, it’s still performed by certain governments, terrorists and others. There’s nothing more final than the severing of one’s head. The guillotine came about because of the desire for a quick, relatively humane death. But how quick is it? If your head were cut off, would you still be able to see or otherwise move it, even for just a few seconds?
This concept perhaps first appeared during the French Revolution, the very time period in which the guillotine was created. On July 17, 1793, a woman named Charlotte Corday was executed by guillotine for the assassination of Jean-Paul Marat, a radical journalist, politician and revolutionary. Marat was well-liked for his ideas and the mob awaiting the guillotine was eager to see Corday pay. After the blade dropped and Corday’s head fell, one of the executioner’s assistants picked it up and slapped its cheek. According to witnesses, Corday’s eyes turned to look at the man and her face changed to an expression of indignation. Following this incident, people executed by guillotine during the Revolution were asked to blink afterward, and witnesses claim that the blinking occurred for up to 30 seconds.
Another often-told tale of demonstrated consciousness following beheading dates to 1905. French physician Dr. Gabriel Beaurieux witnessed the beheading of a man named Languille. He wrote that immediately afterward, “the eyelids and lips … worked in irregularly rhythmic contractions for about five or six seconds.” Dr. Beaurieux called out his name and said that Languille’s eyelids “slowly lifted up, without any spasmodic contraction” and that “his pupils focused themselves” [source: Kershaw]. This happened a second time, but the third time Beaurieux spoke, he got no response.
These stories seem to give credence to the idea that it’s possible for someone to remain conscious, even for just a few seconds, after being beheaded. However, most modern physicians believe that the reactions described above are actually reflexive twitching of muscles, rather than conscious, deliberate movement. Cut off from the heart (and therefore, from oxygen), the brain immediately goes into a coma and begins to die. According to Dr. Harold Hillman, consciousness is “probably lost within 2-3 seconds, due to a rapid fall of intracranial perfusion of blood” [source: New Scientist].
So while it’s not entirely impossible for someone to still be conscious after being decapitated, it’s not likely. Hillman also goes on to point out that the so-called painless guillotine is likely anything but. He states that “death occurs due to separation of the brain and spinal cord, after transection of the surrounding tissues. This must cause acute and possibly severe pain.” This is one of the reasons why the guillotine, and beheading in general, is no longer an accepted method of execution in many countries with capital punishment.
If your head stays on your shoulders, though, it can still be damaged beyond repair. Next, let’s take a look about how long brain damage can last.
That clot is bad news.
Brain damage is an extremely scary thing. For something so mysterious and amazing, the brain can actually be quite fragile and susceptible to a multitude of injuries. Brain damage can be caused by anything from an infection to a car accident, and it essentially means the death of brain cells. To many people, the mere idea of brain damage conjures images of people in persistent vegetative states, or at the very least, permanent physical or mental disability.
But that’s not always the case. There are many different types of brain damage, and exactly how it will affect someone depends largely on its location and how severe it is. A mild brain injury, such as a concussion, usually occurs when the brain bounces around inside the skull, resulting in bleeding and tearing. The brain can recover from minor injuries remarkably well; the vast majority of people who experience a mild brain injury don’t experience permanent disability.
On the other end of the spectrum, a severe brain injury means that the brain has suffered extensive damage. It sometimes requires surgery to remove built-up blood or relieve pressure. For nearly all patients who live through a severe brain injury, permanent, irreversible damage results.
So what about those in between? Some people with brain damage experience permanent disability but can recover partially from their injury. If neurons are damaged or lost, they can’t grow back — but the synapses, or connections between neurons, can. Essentially, the brain creates new pathways between neurons. In addition, areas of the brain not originally associated with some functions can take over and allow the patient to relearn how to do things. Remember the phenomenon of brain plasticity mentioned in the myth about brain wrinkles? That’s how stroke patients, for example, can regain speech and motor skills through therapy.
The important thing to remember is that there are still a lot of unknowns about the brain. When a person is diagnosed with a brain injury, it’s not always possible for doctors to know exactly how well someone will be able to recover from the damage. Patients surprise doctors all the time and exceed expectations of what they’re able to do days, months and even years later. Not all brain damage is permanent.
Speaking of brain damage, in the next myth, we’ll look at the effects that drugs can have on our brains.
Not so smiley, Ecstasy — you might not cause holes in the brain, but that doesn’t mean you’re good for it.

Exactly how different drugs affect your brain is a pretty controversial subject. Some people claim that only the most severe drug use can have any lasting effects, while others believe that the first time you use a drug, you’re causing long-term damage. One recent study states that using drugs like marijuana only cause minor memory loss, while another claims that heavy marijuana use can permanently shrink parts of your brain. When it comes to using drugs like cocaine or Ecstasy, some people even believe that you can actually get holes in your brain.
In truth, the only thing that can actually put a hole in your brain is physical trauma to it. Researchers do claim that drugs can cause short-term and long-term changes in the brain. For example, drug use can lower the impact of neurotransmitters (chemicals used to communicate signals in the brain) like dopamine, which is why addicts need more and more of the drug to achieve the same feeling. In addition, changes in the levels of neurotransmitters can result in problems with neuron function. Whether this is reversible or not is also up for debate.
On the other hand, a study in New Scientist from August 2008 states that long-term use of some drugs actually causes certain structures in the brain to grow, resulting in a permanent change. They claim that this is which is why it’s so difficult to change the behaviors of addicts.
But although the jury’s still out on exactly how different drugs can affect your brain for the long term, we can be reasonably sure of one thing: No drug actually puts holes in your brain.
Next up, let’s see exactly what alcohol does to your brain.
You don’t want to damage the dendrites.
Just one observation of a drunken person is enough to convince you that alcohol directly affects the brain. People who drink enough to get drunk often end up with slurred speech and impaired motor skills and judgment, among other side effects. Many of them suffer from headaches, nausea and other unpleasant side effects afterward — in other words, a hangover. But are a few drinks on the weekend, or even the occasional long drinking session, enough to kill brain cells? What about binge drinking or the frequent, sustained drinking of alcoholics?
Not so much. Even in alcoholics, alcohol use doesn’t actually result in the death of brain cells. It can, however, damage the ends of neurons, which are called dendrites. This results in problems conveying messages between the neurons. The cell itself isn’t damaged, but the way that it communicates with others is altered. According to researchers such as Roberta J. Pentney, professor of anatomy and cell biology at the University at Buffalo, this damage is mostly reversible.
Alcoholics can develop a neurological disorder called Wernicke-Korsakoff syndrome, which can result in a loss of neurons in some parts of the brain. This syndrome also causes memory problems, confusion, paralysis of the eyes, lack of muscle coordination and amnesia. It can lead to death. However, the disorder isn’t caused by the alcohol itself. It’s the result of a deficiency of thiamine, an essential B vitamin. Not only are severe alcoholics often malnourished, extreme alcohol consumption can interfere with the body’s absorption of thiamine.
So while alcohol doesn’t actually kill brain cells, it can still damage your brain if you drink in mass quantities.
How much of your brain did you use while reading this top 10 list? The next myth will explain all.
Why use only a fraction when you could use the whole glorious thing?

We’ve often been told that we only use about 10 percent of our brains. Famous people such as Albert Einstein and Margaret Mead have been quoted as stating a variation of it. This myth is probably one of the most well-known myths about the brain, in part because it’s been publicized in the media for what seems like forever. Where did it come from? Many sources point to an American psychologist of the early 1900s named William James, who said that “the average person rarely achieves but a small portion of his or her potential” [source: AARP]. Somehow, that was converted into only using 10 percent of our brain.
This seems really puzzling at first glance. Why would we have the biggest brain in proportion to our bodies of any animal (as discussed in the sixth myth in our list) if we didn’t actually use all of it? Many people have jumped on the idea, writing books and selling products that claim to harness the power of the other 90 percent. Believers in psychic abilities such as ESP point to it as proof, saying that people with these abilities have tapped into the rest of their brains.
Here’s the thing, though; it’s not really true. In addition to those 100 billion neurons, the brain is also full of other types of cells that are continually in use. We can become disabled from damage to just small areas of the brain depending on where it’s located, so there’s no way that we could function with only 10 percent of our brain in use.
Brain scans have shown that no matter what we’re doing, our brains are always active. Some areas are more active at any one time than others, but unless we have brain damage, there is no one part of the brain that is absolutely not functioning. Here’s an example. If you’re sitting at a table and eating a sandwich, you’re not actively using your feet. You’re concentrating on bringing the sandwich to your mouth, chewing and swallowing it. But that doesn’t mean that your feet aren’t working — there’s still activity in them, such as blood flow, even when you’re not actually moving them.
So there’s no hidden, extra potential you can tap into, in terms of actual brain space. But there’s still so much to learn about the brain. You can start by clicking on some of the links on the next page.

can i say something to u!! it;s not exactly we use just 1% or less of our brain. actually its like out other organs.the more u use it the more capability it gains. actually ppl like abert eistine used it and had it grown and had improved it by tremendous usage of it.
Dam we got dean Koontz over here…sit the fk down…all this shit happening around you and yer in your study reading dumb shit…the end is here…prepare for the apocalypse…OBAMA!!!
Sick! Almost made me throw up.
This is part of the drug war in Mexico cartels rivals send under cover plp to other cartels n once they fine out ur a Rat the chop ur head of n send the video to Narco blog to get the message out so the story about this lady cheating is BS BS nice story, anyways when u go into making money that way then u know how the story goes some other dumb ass will come n take ur place once ur de head !
Are u ppl fukn stupid? First of all it wasnt her husband who beheaded her she was affiliated with a rival cartel an when ur not with the zetas cartel u are against them an thats wy she was beheaded fukn idiots an how could this not be real? It is fukn real u morons
I just can’t believe that someone would do something like this to a person. I want to know why it’s okay to call Muslims terrorist, but when people are cutting the heads off of innocent people, there’s nothing to say about it.
Buddhists in Myanmar burned Muslims ALIVE, but no one said anything about that.
Christians in AMERICA are killing innocent little kids, but for some reason, the only reason they have for it is that “they had a psychological problem.”
I don’t care what religion you are, or what race you are. I know that there are innocent HUMANS on this planet, whether you’re Muslim, or Christian, or Buddhist, or Hindu, or Jewish, etc.
I can understand that it isn’t okay to judge a person of one religion and then assume things about the rest of the people of that religion, but when so many people in the world are racist and biased, it’s just so hard to deal with.
I’m not racist against any race, and my feelings are not biased. I just want to say one thing.
I wasn’t born and I don’t live to harm people. I wasn’t born to hurt another person. Everyone is human and everyone deserves a right to live. If there’s someone who has caused harm to someone’s life, then I believe they need to deal with LEGAL consequences.
This video almost made me cry and the fact that half the people that commented had nothing to say relative to just the concept of cutting someone’s head off, it really sickens me.
I really hope that people don’t continue to do this and all I look forward to is world peace.
OMG !!!!!!! God shall return soon for ones like this!!! And they will burn in hell!!!!
That man needs to have his dick cut off and then his own head cut off. He is no man, just a pussy ass bitch.
Agreed, I cant believe, it doesnt matter what the reason was that this man did it, and it doesn’t matter if its real or not, every 6 hours a woman is killed by her intimate partner everyday and its soooo sad… because as much as we make mistakes , we are still humans, and this kinda of brutal killing is not necessary in our society.
It makes me sick to see this. People really are blind. Smdh
This is why no-one likes Mexico, and their drugged up cartel imbeciles. -,-
He visto peores, pero como dice -Esto es de parte de los zetas Cabrones que pedo xD esta grotesco el video pero es real.
My name is Cherry Palmer, I live in the United States. A few days ago, I met a spell caster, Doctor Sanu while I was on the internet trying to get a spell to get back my boyfriend. My boyfriend left me because he met some other girl who he seems to love more. I was devastated for months. I cried so many times and I always prayed for the day he would come back to me. When I met Doctor Sanu, I didn’t trust him because I had heard a lot about scam and all that but he assured me to put my mind at rest as he wanted to genuinely help me. Something inside of me told me to trust him and I did and now I’m glad I did. In a space of 48 hours Doctor Sanu performed a love spell for me, my boyfriend came back to me and we have been happy together ever since. I believe Doctor Sanu can help you too. His e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org
woman didnt even try anything , this was horible i mean terribly
Perhaps she was very scared and might also be drugged therefore, I guess, she could not retaliate. Maybe she might have thought that the man’s rage might subside after slashing her a bit and seeing her blood and at last minute he may let her live. But all of this is just a conjecture but one thing seems for sure that this man was not alone and he along with his gang deserves to be severely punished.
if i know how you are , i will kill you mother fucker
word of men
I Love Cake !!!
I don’t know where to post this, I have been trying to get my ex-lover back because I’m nobody without him but he seem to be drifting away from me until when I saw a post in here when “Skylar Torres” posted on how Dr.dele help her get her man back after 2 years of breakup. After been scam by lot of spell caster’s promising me false hope not knowing all they really wanted was my money.
I’m so happy today and am also thanking Skylar Torres for posting this early. Dr.dele, you are truly a man of your word. I’ll never ever forget all the happiness you gave me. I highly recommend Dr.dele to you for whatever problem you are experiencing whether is love, money or psychic powers. He is powerful. You can contact him on this email: (email@example.com)
Name: Zoe Alex
That nigga a pussie bring ur posey an come see me I’ll merk y’all nigga 74 nigga we eat niggas like y’all sick bitchies u shall die
Hell is located in the core of the earth…These souls will enter therein and be tortured day and night by the Fallen ones. In time we will see who really suffers. Its nothing they can do that will match the sheer torment that awaits them. Continue on with this type of behavior and in due time they will be running around the hot floors of hell looking for there heads.
Why he kill her on that way?? just shoot her to be fast he is your wife sucker.. and maybe u have children from her… if u kill her shoot her
The problem I have with this video is that if that is his cheating wife why is he in a mask and her face shown for everyone to see? Wouldn’t you know who her man is?
if he was such a big and bad man for beheading a woman WHY DID HE MASK HIS FACE if it was my daughter or sister or even a family i would teach him a valuable lesson . he is a punk wish i knew who he was
I invite these little cowards to pull that crap in Texas. The only reason these little Mexican gangs are still feeling cocky is because they haven’t pissed us off yet. Their time will come and we will send them back to their burrows.
Real or fake? Whatever it is – it is sickening, evil, disgusting, inhumane and desensitizing. The eyes are the window of the soul. To watch things like this will damage your consciences and stain your memory forever.
Plz these guys r divs u say no one can control them we have the world against them ffs !!!! Dnt b such divs shit like this doesn’t ever happened in UK and Neva will skin heads wud fuck them up BNP !!!!!!!!
There is not enough blood for a decapitstion. It should’ve been much messier. Youwould have to get through the sinew and the muscles and the vertebrae which is no easy task with a knife that sizeand the pressure that he exerted. Thats why executioners used axes and two handed long swords to decapitate criminals. And sometimes it took them serveral swings, not stabs, full on swings to cut through to decapitate someone. So unless that dude is heracles or captain america, i doubt this is real. Alsooo, im not saying that i don’t believe that the zetas dont do these kind of things im saying that thisvideo specifically is fake
Bet you she won’t cheat anymore, teach her a lesson
Again I find this sick and an atrocity..its sad I believe he probably was cartel the only reason I wonder if he was just a crazy hubby is because he called police after he did it and cartel wouldn’t call police on themself….its horrific and supposedly his mother and his son was watching ….u would think he probably is a high up member because his son dud not even cry out for his mother… And can anybody translate what he is saying in video
And be prepared they are already here in the United states
OMG!!! that damn son of a bitch!!! he’s just causing unnecessary racism here man!!!!!
cant scream when your lungs are filling up with your own blood, quit looking the other way dude this is the world you live in whether you want to believe it or not
You people and your opinions, your beliefs, it’s amusing. First off, this is fake. If you do not know why or do not believe me, I don’t care, I’m not going to explain why it isn’t real. Figure it out. I realize a lot of you already know this, so ignore my previous statement. Second, if it were real, wether she cheated on her husband or not, no one has the right to take a life. I do support the death penalty, but only in extreme cases, as to prevent death. This is not that sort of case. This is pure evil. I’m am a right wing conservative, and I despise illegal imagrants, but no one deserves this sort of treatment. You people who laugh at this, even though it is fake, are just as evil. Third, and this is what has really been annoying me, you people who say humans deserve this because humans do it to animals, just shut the fuck up already. I have a lot of pets, and I love them. People who abuse animals are evil people, but you are blaming an entire race for it. You are literally Retarded. Now if you are referring to how humans kill and eat animals, you might not like it, but it’s never going to change. It’s been happening for thousands of years. Get over it. This video has literally nothing to do with your retarded hate for humans who eat meat. Keep your plant food loving opinions to yourself.
jeez couldnt he have done it in one swift swipe
That is just crazy how could a human being do something like that
I got sick watching this..
He should be found & killed along with his friends
Its fake… A well made fake… She didn’t piss herself when the body died.. Nuff said
My boyfriend called me to take the phone from him cause he was going to throw up….
this is all gang related w. kill ppl different ways she didn’t cheated she “ratted” if girl cheated I wouldn’t kill her id move on to the next ppl die differently it all depends of how big it is but as you all kno one of hes boys called her a pera (bitch) so she must of done something wrong… she couldnt fight back cause her hands , were tied up but her feet wasn’t anyways she couldn’t do anything cause she was surrounded by the rest they had a truck brought her in the middle of nowhere so if she wanted to scream no1 will hear her but this is were you knoe neva trust snybody neva go byyourself allays gutta prrpare your mind cause ish like this can happen with out you knowing hrr body was burried in the woods her head was also bht at the end he put her face into her vagina saying up you will go all gangs kill ppl differently worser than this he just started cutting into her skin w. a box cutter her legs twitched she felt the pain from scratch then gave up .. but she knew what she was getting her self into nd people always ask why didn’t she peed cause some ppl aren’t afraid to die…………….. mpr caliboy lb
this is not fake the fact that some one said she was hes wife is fake shes a young lady who got her head sliced up with a box cutter they los zetas were killed got smoked out revenge hits back so not only she died they did also kill someone best believe your next enough said
He really showed us whose boss didn’t he, I hope the devil fuc….s him every which way but loose, that piece of shit that even a fly wouldn’t land on. She didn’t deserve that, but I will guess, someone will make him beg for mercy just before they cut his dic.. off and make him swallow it before he die’s like the maggot he is… bi..ch
How in the hell can he get away with doing that i hope he pays for what hes done my heart goes out to her family
