Everybody's talking about last night's very bloody episode of Game of Thrones—particularly the last scene. (Check out our recap here.) HOWEVER! An expert witness in the O.J. Simpson trial, forensic pathologist Dr. Michael Baden, tells TMZ that it was a bunch of BAAAAA-LONEY!
"Blood doesn't come out like that."
"If cut deep enough, the right and left carotid artery will spurt a few feet, just like a hose... not this broad blood-flowing out like a waterfall from the whole neck."
He adds, "There would have been squirting from the right or left carotid artery, carotid arteries spurt.”
Baden also says ... the victims wouldn't have died so quickly ... because death from a throat slashing, "takes much longer than that."
Got it. Thanks again for ruining everything, Science! (Read the whole thing here.)
