I don't understand homophobia. I mean the word "homophobia." I don't get it. Fear of gays? If a lot of gay folks move into your neighborhood, your property value goes up and you get a new Whole Foods.

What's to be afraid of?

I once heard a guy say, "I don't want gays around. They'll try and convert me."

Umm, they're not Jehovah's Witnesses, Skeeter. They don't spend Sunday knocking on doors asking who's read from the book of Judy Garland.

Sunday isn't for recruiting, it's for brunch, silly.

And if the reason you don't want to be around gay men is because you're afraid they'll somehow be able to talk you into being gay, then surprise... YOU'RE GAY

If you're totally straight, then what are you afraid of?

You'll be at a party, some tall drink of water's gonna be handing out free BJ coupons, and you'll think,

"Well, I can't turn down a deal, now can I? Not in this economy!"

Homophobia isn't fear of gays. It's fear you may BE gay. It should be called: "I'M A HOMO-PHOBIA"

And for the record, don't be afraid. Gay men aren't vampires, they don't bite, and they can't convert you.

They're more like Hagrid from Harry Potter: All they can do is introduce you to a fabulous new world by letting you know the magic was in you all along.

There are three different types of comas we can have. One is called toxic-metabolic encephalopathy, which is caused by illness or infection across the body. There's the medically induced coma which is caused by medical professionals to temporary cause a deep state of unconsciousness. Then there's the persistent vegetative state where the patient is the unaware of their surroundings and unable to movement.

However, after u/Pilot_Mosley asked Reddit, we're not so sure that every coma patient is completely unaware of their surroundings. Many people reported hearing their family or the nurses talking to them. Some said the had vivid dreams, only to learn those events actually happened.

Redditor Pilot_Mosley wanted to know what actually is going on in the unconscious mind and how it changed them after:

"Patients who woke up from a long coma, what's your story? How different were things?"

Read on to find out how the coma effected these people, whether it was a day or years.
