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.
