So, where's my food pills?

This is significantly interesting:  People in vegetative states are alive and well, thinking and reasoning.

It's not hard to imagine a future where we're looked on as savages for turning off life-support for these sorts of people.  It's murder.

Maybe we should just give these people in-brain wi-fi chips and let them roam the net.  We'd just have to make sure the wi-fi didn't interfere with the medical equipment...

Another day, another sci-fi trope becomes a little bit more plausible.
