11:29 am - phobi
hey remember how i'm terrified of (total) locked-in syndrome (ie, where you are totally paralyzed and appear to be comatose but are actually fully conscious)? well AHHHHHH dude was considered comatose for TWENTY THREE FREAKING YEARS until someone noticed oh wait he's been conscious the entire time.
i'll also note the end of the article: "Mr Laureys said that in about 40% of cases in which people are classified as being in a vegetative state, closer inspection reveals signs of consciousness."
in summary, if i ever appear to be in a coma, please just drop a safe on my head or something.
Current Location: United States, Boston, Forsyth St, 69-77

randi says most things are a hoax. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Facilitated_communication does sound like most opinion is on his side, but there are examples of people who started with FC and have gone on to communicate independently

i don't think they can prove he was conscious for the whole 23 years...it's hard to judge time when you, like, can't move. though he was obviously conscious longer than they thought he was, so that is totally not comforting, because i think five minutes would be way too long for that.
