How do I look?

I'd ask for a mirror.

Medical Advances

"It's been twenty years and you guys haven't figured how to bring people out of a coma? jeesh"

Dependable Dad

[rebelmouse-image 18357022 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Honestly I'd probably ask where my dad was. If I was alive on life support for 20 years, I assume he would have been paying the bills. He'd be an old man by then. I've no idea if my girlfriend would still be there. She loves me, but she also wants to be a mother more than anything, and she'd probably stop waiting after 5-10 years, which I would not blame her for. But I know my dad would keep me alive until the day he dies, no matter the cost.

Goddamn I love my dad.

"Did anyone look at my internet history?"

Figuratively Speaking

[rebelmouse-image 18357020 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I'd... hope that I had at least lost some weight on my strict liquid tube feeding diet.

If it's a hot doctor: "How you doing?"

Mr. Clean

"Bathroom. WHERE IS THE BATHROOM?"

"You know, most test subjects come out of stasis horribly malnourished. Congratulations on beating the odds and somehow managing to pack on a few pounds."

Asking for a Friend

[rebelmouse-image 18357020 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

"What's that door over there with the sign that reads 'DON'T DEAD, OPEN INSIDE'?"

I don't see the appeal of these rooms.

Why would one enjoy being trapped in a room?

When you watch people trapped in a movie you cheer for their release.

But this activity has gotten super popular.

And people have gotten real creative in their escapes.

Redditor CaptainCatButt wanted to hear confessions from the great escapes. They asked:

"Escape Room employees, what's the weirdest way you've seen customers try and solve an escape room?"

Much of the nation continues to reel from the news that a leaked draft opinion indicated the Supreme Court's ruling on Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization will move to strike down Roe v. Wade, the 1973 landmark decision that protects a person's right to choose reproductive healthcare without excessive government restriction.

Many people remember what it was like in the days before women could seek an abortion; many innocent women died in the absence of proper medical care or were forced to birth children they could not afford, trapping them in poverty.

But could a ruling overturning Roe v. Wade signal the loss of other rights in the future, especially those decided on the right to privacy, on which Roe was hinged?

People shared their thoughts with us after Redditor thisiscubes asked the online community,

"Americans of Reddit, what are your thoughts on Roe v. Wade being overturned by SCOTUS as per draft reports?"
