Was he, by any chance, all twelve of the jurors?
2002-09-07 10:51:16 AM  
dude, i'm 34?
2002-09-07 10:52:07 AM  
I'd go back to sleep.
2002-09-07 10:52:09 AM  
He's not going to believe what anyone tells him:

1 OJ got off
2 11th September
3 There's another Bush in the Whitehouse
2002-09-07 10:54:06 AM  
All he'll notice is TV got a whole lot crappier
2002-09-07 10:54:19 AM  
Rupturedtoad: Agreed...wouldnt want to see his reaction to the september 11th thing...then again, bush in office and OJ getting off are just as bad...
2002-09-07 10:55:06 AM  
Shouldn't this have a Walken tag?
2002-09-07 10:55:12 AM  
Put me back in the coma.
2002-09-07 10:56:07 AM  
He was probably a men in black all that time...
2002-09-07 10:57:25 AM  
But he read minds now, right?
2002-09-07 10:57:34 AM  
The past several years have all been a dream.

Lucky him.
2002-09-07 10:57:43 AM  
you could have made millions

then lost millions
2002-09-07 10:57:47 AM  
seriously, getting out of a 7 years long coma. wow.
It means there is still hope for W Bush.
2002-09-07 10:58:47 AM  
"Welcome back, Pete. After we participate in the national freak-out next Wednesday, we'll tell you how the U.S. bombed the crap out of Europe"

This WOULD be a shocker
2002-09-07 11:02:13 AM  
I wish I were him, then I would have not suffered through most of the Clinton years. Wait till he gets a load of Monica I can hear him now... "WTF was he thinkin'"!

Coma Man in response to Rupturedtoad's posting:

1 OJ got off
2 11th September
3 There's another Bush in the Whitehouse

Coma Man - "Holy Schmoly!" (pulls out feeding & ventilation tubes) (Grabs hypodermic needle from unsuspecting intern, jabs it into his own heart and depresses plunger.)
2002-09-07 11:02:59 AM  
I thought Monica was the one who took the load
2002-09-07 11:03:08 AM  
Heh. He was part of the MIB and has retired. It's all a big cover-up.

*puts on tin-foil hat*
2002-09-07 11:04:08 AM  
"Sir, President Jesse Jackson will visit you tomorrow"
2002-09-07 11:04:20 AM  
"What the Hell?!?!" "No more Camaro???"
2002-09-07 11:04:58 AM  
09-07-02 11:02:59 AM Skidnuts
I thought Monica was the one who took the load

2002-09-07 11:06:32 AM  
Has this guy actually missed much ? (apart from politics and war)
2002-09-07 11:07:31 AM  
keep me there i would scream
2002-09-07 11:08:45 AM  
he'll also learn of-

monica's oval office cigar and decorated dress!
chandra's odd disapearance
and californias ability to charge illegal aliens in state tuition while maintianing outof state tuition for anyone who is an actual citizen of the unitied states of america!

2002-09-07 11:10:15 AM  
I agree with the lot of you. Sept. 11th's going to freak this poor guy out, may just go back into coma.
2002-09-07 11:10:43 AM  
How about waking up to find out Anna Nicole Smith has her own show?
2002-09-07 11:10:53 AM  
"Sir, President Jesse Jackson will visit you tomorrow"

ack. choke. please don't ever make that mental picture for me again.
2002-09-07 11:11:31 AM  
Sir, the year is 4058. There is no more war in the middle east and aliens have taken over australia.
2002-09-07 11:13:25 AM  
Dude...Australia floated up to Greenland, and hamburgers eat people
2002-09-07 11:15:15 AM  
Imagine losing 7 years of your life. Wow. Kinda like the Clinton administration.
2002-09-07 11:17:38 AM  
I can't believe they replaced good bye with "smell you later"
*crappy simpsons reference"
2002-09-07 11:18:49 AM  
"I've been a sleep for 7 years?"
"I know this must be hard."
"Hey, let me get to etrade, my internet stocks must be worth millions by now!"
"Um, we need to talk..."

Hrm.... I wonder if he would have any intrest in stuff like the y2k computer glitch, the clinton stuff, the chandra levey stuff... I mean, none of that really affected anything at all. At least, we are not still feeling the effects of it.

The only big news story I can think of in the last seven years that is actualy still affecting us is the whole florida election fiasco. Beyond that, what?

Can anyone think of any major news stories in the five years between 1995 and sept 10th 2001 that actualy matter?

(I'm sure there are lots of minor stories that really matter, though :P)
2002-09-07 11:19:49 AM  
Imagine losing 7 years of your life. Wow. Kinda like the Clinton administration.

Funny, I've been having similar thoughts since early January 2001, hopefully I can wake up again in late 2004.

2002-09-07 11:20:06 AM  
Wow. This guy missed out on the whole internet bubble

Napster? sock puppets? Giving away free stuff, like computers? Dude, I was in a coma and I managed my money better than you...
2002-09-07 11:20:24 AM  
If they tell him everything that happened in the last 7 years all at once.. he'd go in to a coma again.
2002-09-07 11:21:02 AM  
Someone needs to tell him about fark...or not.
2002-09-07 11:29:05 AM  
"Monica's married to Chandler? Rachel's having a baby??"
2002-09-07 11:29:47 AM

I had menengitis 2.5 years ago. It sucked. Lost my hearing from it.
2002-09-07 11:39:10 AM  
Yes, and now cars fly, oh yes we have people living on the moon, and we are about to colonize Mars...other than that conventional ovens have been replaced with George Foreman grills...
2002-09-07 11:40:13 AM  
It's Austin Powers! Thawed out to fight Iraq.
2002-09-07 11:40:35 AM  
How about waking up to find out that not only does anna nicole smith have her own show, but she's also gained like 100 lbs, is no longer even remotely close to hot and still thinks she is (disgustingly).
2002-09-07 11:41:24 AM  
Wow, 2002! The world must have changed a lot. I must be worth millions, investing in all those Internet companies was the best idea I ever had!
2002-09-07 11:50:15 AM  
I want a superfast connection to the internet...perhaps a 56k flex modem...and a processor speed of a blinding 70 megaherts...

2.5 gig processing? Cable modems? wot?

ok, there are some really kewl things to experience when being outta touch for several years...some crap things...but some kewl things also.
2002-09-07 12:02:14 PM  
Anyone who uses the term 'kewl' needs to be smacked in the back of the head.

Sorry, but it's true.

How about waking up to find out that not only does anna nicole smith have her own show, but she's also gained like 100 lbs, is no longer even remotely close to hot and still thinks she is (disgustingly).

don't forget the part about her being allowed to breed.
2002-09-07 12:05:27 PM  

One word.


Very kewl


2002-09-07 12:06:47 PM  
Reminds me of that scene from the Simpsons (goes something like):

Reporter: This man has woken up from a 30-year coma!
Patient: That "Sonny & Cher" show is not on anymore, is it?
Reporter: NO! Sonny is now a congressman of CA and Cher has an Oscar!
Patient: I'M OUTTA HERE!! (slips back into coma)
2002-09-07 12:10:11 PM  
Dude, get this guy a computer and point him the the farkives!!!
