The driver said he was drinking a "Slurpee," when he got a 'brain freeze' and blacked out.

I know in some states if you spill coffee on yourself you are liable for what follows. In most states an unexpected loss of consciousness while driving means license revocation pending a doctor's clearance to drive, but the DMV has discretion.

Distracted driving or impaired driving?

Assuming the above is actually possible to be true, haven't you now established bias against the defendant and are clearly incapable of providing a fair defense?

Oh, Texas.  Fair defense is probably impossible anyway, especially if the defendant is a minority.

morans in america aren't aware that you aren't supposed to be eating, drinking, texting, digging about for a CD, reading the newpaper or applying cosmetics while operating a motor vehicle. that's why foreign cars were sold for the longest time without cup holders. people abroad tend to drive their cars when they drive their cars.

I'm the only person that I've ever come across that never gets brain freeze, no matter how fast I drink a Slurpee.

Nothin' to freeze?  Sorry.  The fruit was just hanging there, all low and tempting.

I thought this was going to be about someone who froze up when he had to respond to the unexpected. Which is fun to do to people.

Me neither. I get "throat freeze" with frozen drinks, never understood the whole brain freeze thing.

i've read that the brain freeze happens if the cold treat makes contact with the roof of your mouth.

long ago while camping in winter upstate NY i washed my hair outside, dipped it into a damn cold lake and heard something crack in my head. which i think accounts for a lot.

I have always thought brain freeze was kind of a joke. I've tried to get it and just can't.


It's real and is painful but momentary. I've had it, from slurpees or ice cream but I've never blacked out from it.

I would that someone who manages to make himself black out from brain freezing wouldn't be smart enough to drive a car, anyway.

Using this bit of information I have actually tried at times to get a brain freeze. Never happened.

Some people are just awesome like that.

When something cold touches the roof of your mouth (your palate), the sudden temperature change of the tissue stimulates nerves to cause rapid dilation and swelling of blood vessels. This is an attempt to direct blood to the area and warm it back up. The dilation of the blood vessels triggers pain receptors, which release pain-causing prostaglandins, increase sensitivity to further pain, and produce inflammation while sending signals through the trigeminal nerve to alert the brain to the problem. Because the trigeminal nerve also senses facial pain, the brain interprets the pain signal as coming from the forehead. This is called 'referred pain' since the cause of the pain is in a different location from where you feel it. Brain freeze typically hits about 10 seconds after chilling your palate and lasts about half a minute. Only a third of people experience brain freeze from eating something cold, though most people are susceptible to a related headache from sudden exposure to a very cold climate.http://chemistry.about.com/od/howthingsworkfaqs/f/how-brain- freeze-wor ks.htm

Sounds like you took the wrong path. The real money will go to the guy who represents him in his suit against Quickie Mart.

I never got it either until a year or so ago. I don't know what changed. I can't imagine getting it so bad you black out though. I think it might set you back as badly as a big sneeze when driving.

Um, excuse me but the squishee in that episode was all syrup and no ice. It could not have caused a brain freeze.
Worse reference ever.
