That's what I thought
SUCK ON IT.
#1 - Terri's brain was 200g -less- than another patient who died in PVS, and less than half the expected weight of a woman her age.
#2 -Tthere was marked atrophy (shrinkage) of the brain globally, to the point that certain areas of the brain that are expected to be 'packed together', were, in fact, loosely floating about.
#3 - She had a thalamic stimulator installed (an electrical device designed to stimulate the brain) in an attempt to revive some of her function. This stimulator prevented the ability to do an MRI, due to overheating of the electrodes being reported in previous cases of MRI's on stimulators.
#4 - She had smaller than expected optic nerves, otherwise her cranial nerves were normal. Optic nerves are the nerves responsible for receiving optic information from the eyes and passing it to the occipital lobe, along with other lobes of the brain. The clinical implication of this is difficult to understand, but it is likely indicative of non-functioning eyesight/vision. Essentially, she was blind.
Wait... you mean that she really didn't see those balloons that were floating in front of her face? It was all a ruse, and the videos were doctored? Well, fuck me running! Should we be expecting an apology from all the hardcore fanatics, the Bush camp and the GOP? Of course not! That would mean admitting you were WRONG. And who needs scientific and factual proof when you have God on your side?
