I read yesterday about the guy who was awake and aware for 23 years but was totally unable to communicate with anyone. I just want to say, publically, that if I am diagnosed with being in a 'persistant vegetative state', pull the frickin' plug. For one thing, if all I can do is move my foot to type on a computer, I'm not calling that quality of life. I'd rather suffer for a week or two of dehydration before being released from a non-functional body than being trapped in one. Give me a month, maybe two, and if my happy ass isn't tapdancing down the hall on the way out the door, let me go the other way.
That is all.
