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

the guardian imagines what historical figures might look like today. my personal favourite is shakespeare, reincarnated as a shoreditch hipster.

but can you imagine how’d he’d sound a loft party? 
“I’m going to subvert the whole, like, narrative ideal by telling you upfront that these two, like, teenagers are going to fall in love and die, and then do it. So there’s no more hiding in the words. Stark, yeah? And then, I think I’ll hide a sonnet in their big scene together, right? It’ll be subversive, because only, you know, people who are up on sonnets will get it…..what? No, she’s thirteen—a little edgy but that’s art, man. Art.”

amazing that there are living humans out there who have chosen to label other groups of people “justice warriors” and align themselves as directly opposed to them. opposed to justice. look in the mirror. tell yourself “i hate justice”. do you feel like a batman villain yet.

IT OCCURRED TO ME ONCE WHILE WATCHING THIS EPISODEDIPPER IS TWELVE??????WHAT GRADE IS THIS KID IN??????????¿¿¿??? I’M A SOPHOMORE IN ALGEBRA II AND I STILL DON’T EVEN KNOW WHAT THAT WEIRD POINTY E MEANS


The pointy E. Haha.

Hey may be in advanced classes.when i was in 2-3 grade, there was this boy who was already doing College level math

So….Dipper’s a math genius?
8)
…Tell me more.

I think both twins are geniuses, but in different ways.
Dipper is a Math and Physics genius. He can think critically and come up with ideas beyond his years. He knows how to decode clues and solve puzzles extrenely quickly. (He’s basically like Dib from Invader Zim, a child genius who is interested in the supernatural)
Mabel is an art genius. She freakin sculpted a life sized statue that looked exactly like Stan in less than 24 hours. She knits ever single one of her sweaters, which is very impressive considering how many she seems to have as she changes her sweater at least once per episode, and made an entire puppet show from scratch.

Do you ever wonder about Balthazar’s vessel? Like, what if he was a button-down, conservative Christian guy who was so honoured to be chosen by an angel. And then the first night Balthazar has him as his vessel he gets drunk & has a huge fucking orgy. 

#i bet he was a kindergarten teacher

*Sunday school teacher.  

Kindergarten teacher at a private Christian school

Wow

It got better.
