Why Do Dead People Get Goosebumps?
The world is a wonderful yet weird place to live. There are many weird facts that are just creepy to some people. One of those crazy facts is that dead people can get goosebumps.
The goosebumps are not caused the same way they are for a living human though. A person that is alive will get goosebumps as a way for their body to try and warm itself. The skin protrudes and forms small bumps that raise the hair on the skin in hopes of trapping warm air closer to the skin. Someone could also get goosebumps as an emotional reaction to something they hear or see. This is caused by a release of adrenaline in the body.
Why is it that dead people can get goosebumps though? It is not a living response that caused the deceased to get the bumps. Their reactions are cause by the rigor mortis that affects all of the muscles of the body. The hair follicle react the same way. As the hair follicles retract the raised bumps appear. Although they look the same as the cold caused bumps the living get, the reaction that the dead get is of no help to them.
