I don't know that a human body contains three gallons of blood but more like 1.25.

There is an internet article floating around somewhere which claims someone died on the side of the road when a seatpost broke and pierced his femoral artery. I'm not claiming it is true but I was an altar server at a funeral for someone who shot himself in the femoral artery while cleaning his gun. He was gone in less than two minutes while his family watched.
