Speaking of Faces of Death, I recently relented and purchased a few of
these rather repulsive videos because of a customer recommendation,
and upon previewing them to prepare for what I imagined would be
numerous complaints, found that many of the incidents seemed VERY
staged. Does anyone know how much of what is in these videos is real?
Just curious.

Also, I agree with Gary, pass these by if at all possible.

BTW, no complaints yet.

GO BRONCOS!
