Casket Safety Question

Post by EVILVAMP on 09.11.18 14:25

Is it possible for a human to sleep in a casket safely? I was thinking about getting one, but do not want to accidentally suffocate myself.

I've seen contest listings around Halloween where whoever sleeps in a coffin the longest gets a cash prize and gets to keep the coffin. So, because of that, part of me thinks that maybe the answer is yes, it is safe.

Yet, a casket is actually rather different than a coffin in its design. Also, the "coffins" used in such contests might be 'stage' built or modified for safety whereas an actually coffin might be unsafe.

In my research, many have said just leave the lid open. But, to me, that would ruin the effect for both sleeping and as a meditation chamber for sensory deprivation reasons. I have yet to find anyone that could give me a clear answer, even after e-mail a casket manufacturer and getting no information back in return. (Been over a week now.)

Considering it my interest in Vampire that has lead me to this idea, can someone please tell me if it is safe for me to use a casket as a bed and actually close it? Or, would I run out of air and suffocate?

I kept getting 'buried alive survival guides' in my research. But, they are calculating air volume based on being six feet under dirt. Is a casket actually air tight? Or, if it's not buried in dirt and is being used as a bed in a room above ground, does it get enough airflow, even with the lid closed, to be safe for sleeping?

I am not sure who else would be best to ask this to. I know not all Vampires sleep in caskets/coffins. But, I also read in places that some will for the eccentric nature of it. I am rather eccentric. But, I also don't want to have my eccentricities lead to me an unfortunate accident.

It all depends on the casketís construction and features but it should be reasonably safe. Never heard about any such incidents. Either way just exercise some common sense and youíll be fine.

This should have been asked in the Off Topic section though as it does not relate with actual vampirism.

To role play basically. Its aesthetically appropriate to those who just like to feel like a vampire. Though in all honesty its a bit impractical and a bit telling of this persons conjecture on vampirism and the like.

Moved to Off Topic.

Keep in mind that this forum is about real vampirism, metaphysics and the nature of spirituality, not role-playing.

I know, I'm just stating their reasons, whether they're appropriately placed here or not.
