    A Canadian man who was believed to have been in a vegetative state for more than a decade, has been able to tell scientists that he is not in any pain.

    It's the first time an uncommunicative, severely brain-injured patient has been able to give answers clinically relevant to their care.

    Scott Routley, 39, was asked questions while having his brain activity scanned in an fMRI machine.

    His doctor says the discovery means medical textbooks will need rewriting.

    Let Dr. House take a look at him. He'll be up and walking and talking within an hour.

    Did I violate some kind of rule in the title of the thread? I had the word "Interesting..." at the beginning of the title and it was deleted. Why was that?

    I think it was just one of the mods subtle way of telling you their opinion of your overall posting history? :p: ;)

    You probably violated a rule by asking if you violated a rule.

    Well good sir, telling someone that they have committed a rule violation is in itself a rule violation.

    Ah but my liege I couched it in "probably" whereas you stated definitively that I had. Tsk tsk.

    Yes but you are a loud mouth Canadian so the "probably" does not make it null and void. :p:

    I will only allow you to call me a loud mouth because your avatar pic scares the crap out of me.
