18% of vegetative patients are actually conscious, this is pretty horrible. It's pretty much the worse possible outcome of any condition I can think of. Can't move, can't communicate, all you can do is think and watch the world go by potentially for decades while everyone thinks you're a piece of furniture. That being said "Yay!" now we can tell you're not actually a piece of furniture and we might change the channel for you once in a while.
Just imagine how many times the plug has been pulled on somebody who was screaming frantically in their head THANK GOD, FINALLY........ *
