    Every time Tyler speaks I wish he was my age and into me because he says things that just fit with my thinking.

    The moment Mariel mentioned wanting to touch Michelle Obama but that being unattainable I thought "Oh you might hate me then" because Michelle Obama was the commencement speaker at my high school graduation and all of us got to hug her after getting our diplomas.

    Brandon either has a great on screen character that he performs perfectly or he's actually insane. The complaint about his irrational fears, the switch to "getting hit in the balls" from song stuck in head....his mind just isn't working the same as everyone else....Good on RoosterTeeth for keeping him employed :P

    It's not an irrational fear, about the organ donation issue. 999,999 times out of a million it doesn't happen, but it's not impossible that you could get into a car accident and be in super bad shape and at the hospital they take you to there could be someone who needs an organ and you're a match, and they might not work quite as hard to keep you alive as they might have otherwise. 

    • camsteirie FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold The rest is history

      That is actually totally irrational. I don't even know where to start with how wrong you are. Do you think doctors want to watch someone die in front of them? Or that transplant recipients stay in hospital until there's an organ for them? (spoiler alert, most of the time, they don't) Do you know about transplant lists? How long it takes to test if someone is a match? This is the worst kind of scaremongering.

      The guy isn't correct if it's ever happened even once, and you can't tell me it's never happened even once. A one in 7 billion chance of it happening is still a chance, and it's not a chance I'm willing to take.

      When I get to the age when I have to worry about this sort of nonsense, I'll have a living will that says I want to stay plugged in no matter what and to leave my comatose brain-dead vegetable-self alone for a decade or two until science catches up and can either fix me or upload my brain.

    • camsteirie FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold The rest is history

      The "guy", if you're referring to me, is a girl. The fact it might have happened once in 7 billion (interested to see where those numbers came from btw) just validates my point that you're both scaremongering and being irrational, if those odds are going to stop you potentially saving the lives of 8 people and improve the lives of potentially up to another 50. This is after diagnosis of death from at least one, usually more than one, doctor.


      I can't read the WSJ article that the Gizmodo link is talking about, as it's behind a paywall. However, I will note that as far as I can tell, (and I'm not familiar with his work), Dick Tersi, the author of the WSJ article, is neither a clinician or a surgeon, but rather a science writer. 


      I did look up the actual medical guidelines for determining brain death, and they are a little more complex than is implied in the article you linked. I'm making an assumption here that you are in the US and therefore these guidelines apply, however a quick look online will give you equivalents for various other countries without too much bother. 


      (UK: http://bts.org.uk/information-resources/publications/ India: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4166875/ for example)


      American Academy of Neurology Guidelines for Brain Death Determination: http://surgery.med.miami.edu/laora/clinical-operations/brain-death-diagnosis


      I hope that helps to clear up any confusion.

    • michael.everett.whittaker

      1 month ago

      The other commentor referred to you as "the guy" and I merely mirrored their comment's wording.


      "One in 7 billion" came from the fact that there are 7 billion humans, and it has certainly happened at least once (regardless of whether or not it's sanctioned, you can't tell me it has literally never happened even just once).


      Scientists are better at brains than doctors are.


      I don't care. I'm going to be cryogenically frozen when I die to ensure my brain is preserved for The Future, and if those plans are interrupted by getting into a car accident it won't change the fact that I value the preservation of my own brain at all costs over doing the allegedly "more moral" thing and saving the lives of others. You say I ought to allow myself to die in order to prevent the death of someone else, and I say they ought to allow themselves to die in order to prevent my own death (or better yet, they ought to throw their lot in with cryogenics and not be relying on someone else's death in the first place).

    • camsteirie FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold The rest is history

      1 month ago

      Nope. Not saying you should allow yourself to die in order for other people to live, I'm saying that you'd already be dead. Brain dead. Not alive. 


      Also, I'm not sure what "Scientists are better at brains than doctors are." means? I'm a microbiologist, pretty sure a neurosurgeon knows waaaay more about my brain that I do  joy


      Thank you for clarifying the 1 in 7 billion figure. If you believe that is accurate, then there is more chance of you becoming brain dead after being hit on the head with a falling coconut that there is of multiple nefarious doctors conspiring to kill you in order to harvest your organs. So I'm sorry, I still think you're being irrational, my original point still stands. 


      Good luck with the cryogenics thing, the science to back up that is far far more scarce than that around brain death, but I'm sure for you it will work out just perfectly. Do please find my descendants at that point and tell them you told me so. (I mean, provided that in the interim the company you paid all those thousands of dollars to hasn't gone out of business, and their facility hasn't been destroyed by war, or natural disasters. Wonder what the odds of that are, I'm not sure?)


      But either way. maybe take a look at some of the evidence first? 


      Cold reality vs. The Wishful Thinking of Cryonics: "Cryonics is not, as its advocates say, an “ongoing medical trial”. Rather, those who choose to freeze themselves are more akin to the ancient Pharaohs, who spent enormous resources constructing elaborate tombs, so that they will one day rise from the grave and live again. Instead, they are found thousands of years later and end up in museums around the world." (https://sciencebasedmedicine.org/cold-reality-versus-the-wishful-thinking-of-cryonics/)


      How can you preserve a brain by destroying it?: "Take a simpler organism, like a fruit fly or a nematode. Kill it, fix it, freeze it, vitrify it. That should be trivial at their tiny scale. Then rebuild a fly brain from the extracted information and show me that it still knows how to walk, fly, eat, court, and mate.

      Nobody’s even close to accomplishing any of that." (https://freethoughtblogs.com/pharyngula/2016/01/29/how-can-you-protect-a-brain-by-destroying-it/)


      MIT Technology Review - The False Science of Cryonics: "No one who has experienced the disbelief of losing a loved one can help but sympathize with someone who pays $80,000 to freeze their brain. But reanimation or simulation is an abjectly false hope that is beyond the promise of technology and is certainly impossible with the frozen, dead tissue offered by the “cryonics” industry. Those who profit from this hope deserve our anger and contempt." (https://www.technologyreview.com/s/541311/the-false-science-of-cryonics/)


      ...and for a bit of light relief...


      You and Me and Walt Disney, by Helen Arney: 


      [NOTE: I'm aware at this point that I'm unlikely to change your mind. That's fine. But I wasn't going to let your opinions be presented without someone arguing back with facts and science, just in case anyone else who is a little more open minded happens to read this and wants to look at some of the evidence for themselves. Thanks for being so polite in our discussions, and for giving me the opportunity to learn a little more about an area of medicine that I knew very little about.]

    Last song to listen to while going down in a plane? I can think of a few songs would probably go with. Like Life is Beautiful, (NOT the Vega 4 song, the one by Sixx:A.M.) Or perhaps it would be others I've listened to on repeat in an embarrassing amount: Canvas by Imogen Heap, either Somewhere Only We Know or Crystal Ball by Keane, Resistance by MUSE, Exile Vilify by The National, パレート (Parade) by CHABA, How Far We've Come by Matchbox Twenty, No Light, No Light by Florence + The Machine, I Wanna Get Better by Bleachers, Blame It on the Girlby MIKA ... heck, even something as simple as Moon River by Andy Williams ...

    It would be such a spur of the moment choice.

    Jon, I also love you, but I share the sentiment of you being a fucking idiot about Halloween.  It's dated looking in terms of fashion, but it's a great, tension filled, excellently filmed slasher movie with great performances from Jamie Lee Curtis and Donald Pleasance as Dr Loomis.

    EDIT - Poorly crafted?  Shot terribly??  The fuck are these opinions?  The original Halloween poorly crafted, that's a new one, literally never heard that before.  Nothing wrong with the pacing either...I'm honestly flabbergasted to be hearing that.
