I saw a particular movie yesterday, I won't say its name because it is a heavy spoiler (kind of) So the man survived getting his throat cut, the story took place in our time with our technology. Is that really possible? He could talk once he had healed as well. How about medieval times, would one be able to survive such a wound back then? I don't think one would survive such a wound in our time even, at least not talk perfectly after the wound had been healed and fixed, what not.
