the only advantage would be to share your story with others, otherwise you are going to die anyway so what's the rush?

people flat line and come back all the time, have been brain dead, no brain waves...they come back with stories and majority of people for what ever reason don't care to listen to them, or write it off as a dream/brain trip. And it is impossible for them to prove what they are saying is real.

If you accomplished this for 10 minutes you would just be another NDE story...one more added to thousands already out there

This.

In reality, yes. But the OP set up a hypothetical situation where you die.

If the death is painless, I am in.

Always have been more interested in what happens in the next phase. Might as well kill myself again if I get revived while liking what I've seen.

*sigh*...there have been plenty of recorded NDEs with no brain waves...his hypothetical really happens IMO

I get that you are trying to declare that you aren't really dead in an NDE...but that isn't true IMO...none of the people that have had one would agree with you either.

no.

that money is no good to me if i'm dead.

40% chance is way too high.

I get what you are saying as well. But we have no idea if what we declare as clinically dead is the true "dead," since people can come back. If there were some magical way of coming back from what would be some scientifically impossible version of dead, that could be different.

like come back after your body has begun to decompose, zombie form?

people have returned after rigor mortis has set in...that's pretty damn close

Val Thomas’ doctors honestly can’t explain how she is alive today.

Thomas, who lives in West Virginia, is being called a medical miracle after she suffered two heart attacks and had no brain waves for more than 17 hours; reports NewsNet5.com.

Thomas’ heart stopped around 1:30 a.m. Saturday and doctors said she had no pulse. Rigor mortis started to set in, and she was placed on a respiratory machine.

Her skin had already started to harden and her fingers curled,” Thomas’ son, Jim, told NewsNet5.com. “Death had set in.”

Thomas, 59, was rushed to a West Virginia hospital, where she was put on a special machine to induce hypothermia. This would allow her body to cool down for 24 hours before they would warm her up again, doctors explained.

However, Thomas’ heart stopped again after the procedure.

Her family said their goodbyes and Thomas’ tubes were removed, but she remained hooked on a ventilator as the possibility of organ donation was discussed.

However, Thomas woke up 10 minutes later and started talking.

“The nurse said, ‘I’m so sorry, Mrs. Thomas,’ and mom said, ‘That’s OK, honey, that’s OK,’” Jim Thomas said.

Val Thomas was transferred to the Cleveland Clinic so that specialists could check her out, but doctors said they could find nothing wrong with her.

“I know God has something in store for me, another purpose,” Val Thomas said. “I don’t know what it is, but I’m sure he’ll tell me.”

That is pretty crazy

I don't know what the cut off is. Nobody can. But whatever that cutoff point is, I want to know what happens hypothetically after that, because nobody has ever returned from that point.

I would not even have sex with Monica Bellucci if there was a 10% chance I'd get AIDs. 40% is way too much

Yes.

There's no negative consequence to being permanently dead. You won't feel it.

Nah, we'll eventually meet our creator(whoever/whatever that might be)

BUT if you don't have any kids or people relying on you might be tempted though.
