Ah, brain injuries. So weird. After my sister got out of the rehab hospital for hers, she referred to her doctorate advisor (first name Joss) as Joss Whedon. We knew who she meant, but it was hilarious that the fandom overwrote the advisor info.

Remind me to say "I want to have sex with Mila Kunis" if I ever slip in to a coma.  Doesn't matter how long I'm in there.  If you can get a reporter there to witness it, that'd be super.

I'm getting a kick out of this because I just submitted the same article.  How the hell did "check link" not catch that?  And how the hell did I forget to check the main page before I submitted it?

All the same, I hope I'm still going to concerts when I'm 79, good for her.

Dad, is that you?  My father liked Seger when he was still regional, he doesn't care for the stuff he did after he went national.  Dear god, was my dad one of the first hipsters?

Polish Hussar: I'm getting a kick out of this because I just submitted the same article. How the hell did "check link" not catch that? And how the hell did I forget to check the main page before I submitted it?


Just figured it out by checking URL's.  This link is from the Detroit News frontpage, I used the link from the Entertainment section because I've been burned by links getting farked due to the newspaper taking the article off of their frontpage (thanks a lot, New York Times article on Colorado legalizing same sex marriage).

2013-04-11 02:55:49 PM
I'd ask the following questions:

Why are there people holding up pictures of a black guy eating a watermelon with a caption that says, "You won't take our guns"? Is this 1963?

Has Cheney been prosecuted for war crimes yet?

Did Eddie Murphy finally come out of the closet?

Instagram? Why the hell would anyone put a bunch of pictures of themselves up for strangers to see and comment on?

Is the country a subsidiary of Halliburton, yet?

Is Michael jackson in jail for touching those kids?

Beyonce is pregnant?? By who?? Noooooo!

"I'm so excited I can hardly breathe," she said. "What am I looking forward to the most? Hugging Bob Seger and giving him a big smooch."

Also FTFA:"The dinner to take place after the concert will include the band members, crew, management and their families. Tenbrusch said it's not certain that Seger himself will attend."

I almost died from illness once, and at my worst part i lost a lot of mental clarity.  When i ended up recovering, I was overwhelmed with the desire to play golf.  I watched golf tv all day.. played golf video games, read golf magazines.  Never actually bothered to play golf.

I got over it.  *shrug*

I knew a guy back in college who had been in a coma for several years.  He got sick when he was young, slipped into a coma, stayed that way for seven years, family had written him off, and then one day he just woke up.  I was told he'd been the wildest, craziest, loudest, most outgoing jokester you could ever hope to meet.  When I knew him, he was almost completely withdrawn, never had anything to say.  If you asked him a question, he might respond with one or two words, or he might just look at you, or look through you, for a while, and then his eyes would wander somewhere else.  It was friggin' spooky.

That was only about a year after he'd come out of it.  Wonder what he's like today.
