Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, June 04, 2019

It was May 2006, and I had just been swimming. I was on my way from my home in Hastings to work as a revenue executive for HMRC. It was raining hard, and the visibility was terrible. I was crossing the road when a white van drove into me and I fell, hit the side of my head, and rolled under a parked car. I have no memory of it. In fact I didn't remember anything from a year before the accident until four years afterwards; I began to work out what had happened to me from what other people told me.

This actually happens somewhat frequently; there are current stories about a Croatian girl and an English boy waking up speaking German for her and Spanish for him.

In psych classes we studied a classic case of a woman waking from a coma singing a German lullaby, a language she did not speak. In the case study it was eventually found that she had a German nurse as a baby, prior to any language skills, who sang her that song.

Everything is still there, it just isn't always at the surface or even accessible.

The closest I ever experienced was the old life flashing before your eyes thingy... as I went hurling down a frozen mountain highway in a runaway 18 wheeler as a teenager. It was compressed time and quite vivid.

I woke up with a white flag in my hand, screaming "Mercy!", not "Merci!"

Reminds me of that married with children episode where Kelly was a genius until she bumped her head in the Dodge.

I woke up in 2021, turned the TV on and saw President Trump being inaugurated. Again.

Pretty sure I never woke up.

This is obviously a fever dream.

No way a Republcian President of the US would cooperate with and allow Russians to attack us and undermine our democracy unimpeded.

Did she also have an overwhelming desire to drink crap wine and smoke cheep cigarettes? I've been to France. I was not impressed.
