    Hypothetical question

    Say you would be in a coma for 20 years after an accident.

    Say they would go through 20 years of you being in a coma, then you wake up...


    What would you think? What would you do? In the aspect of mind you are blown away, technology has advanced 20 years, if you have kids they may have moved out, started lives already, or something else might have happened to them....

    In the aspect of body....you would have barely any muscle at all. (I think) you would barely be able to lift your own arms or even walk....
    You would have to recover...

    Say you would be in coma from 1992 to this year 2012.



    I don't even know what I would do. First I would try to regain basic muscle strenght. It would take a while, but I will succeed..

    Then I would just walk the streets... just explore...wander... see what my friends have been up to and more...

    Of course I would be depressed that I would have missed 20 years of my life.

    Really, really weak. I can barely walk, I'm being fascinated by everything that's happening around me. Eventually, immediately try to find out if my parents and others are alright.

    Either try and kill myself. Ask if nanotech and cyborg tech is set yet. Maybe see how the world in general is doing. Oh and find out if we have confirmed multiverses yet.

    You wouldn't have a WoW account, silly. You missed the release!

    I don't know what I would do.... especially since I fell into the comma the year before I was born.

    Edit: On the topic of muscles; When you are in a coma the nurses would be moving you constantly and working your muscles so that you don't lose blood circulation or get bedsores. So you will lose muscle mass, but not enough to stop your from moving.

    Generally when I sleep I dream a lot and most times mix it with reality so knowing me I'd have a blast in a 20 year coma.

    If it was from 1992 to 2012, I'd have been 2 when my coma started so I'd begin by learning to talk and so on.
    If it starts now then ends in 2032. I'd check if my family, friends etc are alive where they are. Watch all the new seasons of Doctor Who and probably spend hours on the internet or whatever the internet has become, looking at all the new technologies.

    Oh and of course check what happened to girls generation/what they're doing now.

    Oh right, 1992 to 2012.

    Well, I was born in December of 1992, so the absolute oldest I could've been when I went into coma would be 17 days old.
    So, I'd have quite a bit to do. Like learning to talk and walk.
