Facilitated Communication Is Trying to Make Coma Guy Wish He Was Dead
Coma Guy! He was in coma for 23 years, and then it turned out that he is conscious, and now he is totally answering questions and stuff! It is a wonderful story. If, as neurologist Steven Laureys says (and he seems legit), Coma Guy is conscious and not vegetative, than this new break in his case must be the single most frustrating thing to have ever happened to him. Because, as you can see, this woman has drihf bomytol oh hif hsnf abd us vurtyikknf hiud ghabf. (I typed the second half of that sentence with one finger, with my eyes closed, which is exactly how Coma Guy is currently composing his book. It works better with some lady “helping.”)
So. Facilitated Communication! It is a fraud, and, looking at that video, a fairly obvious fraud. If this guy is actually conscious, this story is incredibly depressing.
