    This is why you don't leave catfood outside in the garden cause slugs love catfood and your cat ends up catching diseases from it

    I’ve seen people on ventilators with sedatives for three weeks and even that’s enough to fuck you up to some degree.

    Not really, coma's can last decades. Sometimes people actually wake up after being in a coma for 20 or 30 years.
