there’s a lot of shit going on in my life that i haven’t shared about with anyone, and i think i’m reaching a breaking point.
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.
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.
OH MY FUCK

Celebrities who copy Beyoncé: one direction
yeahhh but beyonce ‘4’ was a flop. One Directions ‘four; is going to run circles around hers.
One Directions Debut album sold more than ‘4’
Now I don’t know what particular brand of crayons you’re grinding up and snorting through your nostrils or injecting into your pasty arm but you’re getting detoxed today. Let’s begin. Does 1D have a 10M selling album under their belt? How about an 8M selling album? Shit, a 7M selling album at least? No? damn! because I KNOW you’re not trying to come for 4 when the era lasted for all of 5 months due to Bey’s pregnancy where she was MIA for most of it…Fun fact: 4 outsold Midnight Memories in the US and they sold the same in the UK as well… w/ less than half the promo and effort from Bey lol. And if you wanna talk flops, let’s talk singles bc all of theirs always literally BOMB. Not just in the states… but WW! LMAO! Bey sold 104M singles and over 31M albums and if we’re talking total career sales then she’s at 200M+ records sales and I doubt they’ve even sold a quarter of that w/ their back to back albums LOL! 4 also won a Grammy! LMAO! Stick to the JB fans and 5SOS fans bc trust when I say y’all don’t want it w/ the hive, ok?
*doesn’t check bank account*
*pretends everything is fine*
