Apple, Doctor, and Drunk: The Vegetative Patient Who Could Talk To Doctors BBC sixpenceee: my-hardcore-kittens: indie—cat: rainamermaid: memewhore: sean3116: sixpenceee: As someone who wants to study the human consciousness I found this very interesting. Scott Routley was a “vegetable”. A car accident seriously injured both sides of his brain, and for 12 years, he was completely unresponsive. Unable to speak or track people with his eyes, it seemed that Routley was unaware of his surroundings, and doctors assumed he was lost in limbo. They were wrong. In 2012, Professor Adrian Owen decided to run tests on comatose patients like Scott Routley. Curious if some “vegetables” were actually conscious, Owen put Routley in an fMRI and told him to imagine walking through his home. Suddenly, the brain scan showed activity. Routley not only heard Owen, he was responding. Next, the two worked out a code. Owen asked a series of “yes or no” questions, and if the answer was “yes,” Routley thought about walking around his house. If the answer was “no,” Routley thought about playing tennis. These different actions showed activity different parts of the brain. Owen started off with easy questions like, “Is the sky blue?” However, they changed medical science when Owen asked, “Are you in pain?” and Routley answered, “No.” It was the first time a comatose patient with serious brain damage had let doctors know about his condition. While Scott Routley is still trapped in his body, he finally has a way to reach out to the people around him. This finding has huge implications. SOURCE HOLY STEAMING SHITFUCKS WHY IS EVERYONE NOT LOSING THEIR SHIT ABOUT THIS What a fucking nightmare, just kill me. I know a girl who was hit by a drunk driver and in that state for a year. When she woke up the first thing she did was tell off the doctor who tried to convince her mom to pull the plug. She heard *everything* while being called brain dead. Omg^ undefined

Ben Carson, cnn.com, and Empire: Robert Reich 9 hrs G Update for Trump voters 1. He said he wouldn't bomb Syria. You bought it. Then he bombed Syria 2. He said he'd build a wall along the border with Mexico. You bought it. Now his secretary of homeland security says it's unlikely that we will build a wall." 3. He said he'd clean the Washington swamp. You bought it. Then he brought into his administration more billionaires, CEOs, and Wall Street moguls than in any administration in history, to make laws that will enrich their businesses 4. He said he'd repeal Obamacare and replace it with something "wonderful." You bought it. Then he didn't. 5. He said he'd use his business experience to whip the White House into shape. You bought it. Then he created the most chaotic, dysfunctional back-stabbing White House in modern history, in which no one is in charge 6. He said he'd release his tax returns, eventually. You bought it. He hasn't, and says he never will 7. He said he'd divest himself from his financial empire, to avoid any conflicts of interest. You bought it. He remains heavily involved in his businesses, makes money off of foreign dignitaries staying at his Washington hotel, gets China to give the Trump brand trademark and copyright rights, manipulates the stock market on a daily basis, and has more conflicts of interest than can even be counted 8. He said Clinton was in the pockets of Goldman Sachs, and would do whatever they said. You bought it. Then he put half a dozen Goldman Sachs executives in positions of power in his administration 9. He said he'd surround himself with all the best and smartest people. You bought it. Then he put Betsy DeVos, opponent of public education, in charge of education, Jeff Sessions, opponent of the Voting Rights Act, in charge of voting rights, Ben Carson, opponent of the Fair Housing Act, in charge of fair housing, Scott Pruitt, climate change denier, in charge of the Environmental Protection Agency, and Russian quisling Rex Tillerson as Secretary of State 10.

Then he said his predecessor, Barack Obama, spied on him, without any evidence of Obama ever doing so, in order to divert attention from the FBI's investigation into collusion between his campaign and Russian operatives to win the election 11. He said he knew more about strategy and terrorism than the generals did. You bought it. Then he promptly gave the green light to a disastrous raid in Yemen- even though all his generals said it would be a terrible idea This raid resulted in the deaths of a Navy SEAL, an 8-year old American girl, and numerous civilians. The actual target of the raid escaped, and no useful intel was gained 12. He called Barack Obama "the vacationer-in-Chief and accused him of playing more rounds of golf than Tiger Woods. He promised to never be the kind of president who took cushy vacations on the taxpayer's dime, not when there was so much important work to be done. You bought it.

I am perfectly fine. how dare you subconsciously insult me inside my own home. in my own bathroom. what the fuck upon leaving the bathroom, you catch me watering my Shrek chia pet I am mentally noting that its growth is impressive secretly feeling overwhelmed by the impressive and not at all strange amount of Shrek themes in my home, you make up an excuse to try and leave you say it is getting late. I note aloud that I hadn’t even noticed and look over at my Shrek clock to confirm I internally note that it’s barely past noon and not actually that late at all but I don’t say anything about this thought out of politeness to my guest I show you to the door and we exchange goodbyes as you are on your way out, you catch a glimpse of my Shrek car you wonder how you didn’t notice it on the way in as you catch a glimpse of the back window Shrek decal it’s of Donkey and he sort of looks as if he’s waving at you you waved in response and then you wondered why you did that. it’s a sticker a tiny, inanimate object, completely incapable of any sort of consciousness I see that people keep reblogging this, but they’re only reblogging a part of it up to the cook book bit I love you, but please appreciate my shitposts in their entirety This will be me in the future. Get ready folks! I stopped reading half way and just looked in awe @milky-phan
