Text: As a growing artist and a teenager, sometimes you feel a bit unappreciated; I get depressed, self-loathing and overall disappointed in myself because I feel like in order to be appreciated I have to be something else. All I do is make art and listen to music, so sometimes I feel a lot like Gerard and feel really close to him even though I’m not. The thing about Gerard is: he appreciates my art and encourages me, and it makes me feel so much better about myself. My dad doesn’t hate that I make art but he doesn’t love it or really care about what I do, Gerard on the other hand watches me grow as an artist and will tell me to keep it up and kind of be there for me like an art mentor. I’m not sure if he saved my life, but he sure as hell makes it a lot easier and makes me more comfortable with who I am.
gerard way is a pretty nice dude

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.
