Japanese to try to wake up Godzilla.

April 08th, 2017 by Bookslinger

Here or here. (Choose your poison, CNN or Daily Mail.)

I think I saw this in a movie once.  I forget how it turned out. Or maybe it was Gamera.

“I’m not dead yet.” “Yes you are.”

July 08th, 2013 by Bookslinger

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2358597/Woman-opened-eyes-doctors-New-York-hospital-began-organs-donation-believing-brain-dead.html

Original article here.

The damning parts are:

“But doctor’s ignored the nurse’s observations which indicated Burns was still alive, and proceeded with the surgery anyway.”

And:

“Before the procedure, Burns was given an injection of the sedative Ativan, but neither the sedative or the observations of life were recorded in the doctor’s notes for the procedure.

Dr. David Mayer, a general vascular surgeon and associate professor of clinical surgery an New York Medical College, said the application of a sedative is quite strange.

‘It would sedate her to the point that she could be non-reactive,’ Mayer told the Post-Standard. ‘If you have to sedate them or give them pain medication, they’re not brain dead and you shouldn’t be harvesting their organs.’

This is actually an old theme, from a 1978 Michael Douglas film:
