Man in coma uses his thoughts to tell doctors, ĎIím not in painí
Back in 2010, neuroscientists confirmed that it was possible to communicate with some patients locked in a vegetative state by using an fMRI scanner. Though limited, the breakthrough suggested that more meaningful dialogue with patients in a coma could someday be possible. And now, two years later, it has finally happened. A Canadian man in a vegetative state has used his thoughts to tell scientists that he is not in any pain, marking the first time a patient in such a condition has relayed information relevant to their care.

they should put him in there, put several naked photos of busty blondes, doing hamburger shots in front of him, and see what the brain waves for 'YOU FUCKING TWATS!!!!' look like.

in the name of research, and for a great laugh.

I think you need to add some stuff about mussies or elections to get a pin.

Maybe "Man votes for Obama while in a coma, then requests doctors remove Christmas tree from his room because its religiouly insensitive"

but its a 5* and pin from me :)

Does that mean he has been immobilized and alone with his thoughts for the past 12 years?! My first communication would be "kill me now!!"

This isnt all comas, People should not be afraid, Most people in comas are sleeping. I knew a few and they have no memories of their state. And I was in a two week coma myself, It was like going to sleep and then waking up. I have no recall, no memories, nothing of those two weeks that was like two seconds to me. This will make many people paranoid and scared than need be.
