As someone who wants to study the human consciousness I found this very interesting.
Scott Routley was a “vegetable”. A car accident seriously injured both sides of his brain, and for 12 years, he was completely unresponsive.
Unable to speak or track people with his eyes, it seemed that Routley was unaware of his surroundings, and doctors assumed he was lost in limbo. They were wrong.
In 2012, Professor Adrian Owen decided to run tests on comatose patients like Scott Routley. Curious if some “vegetables” were actually conscious, Owen put Routley in an fMRI and told him to imagine walking through his home. Suddenly, the brain scan showed activity. Routley not only heard Owen, he was responding.
Next, the two worked out a code. Owen asked a series of “yes or no” questions, and if the answer was “yes,” Routley thought about walking around his house. If the answer was “no,” Routley thought about playing tennis.
These different actions showed activity different parts of the brain. Owen started off with easy questions like, “Is the sky blue?” However, they changed medical science when Owen asked, “Are you in pain?” and Routley answered, “No.” It was the first time a comatose patient with serious brain damage had let doctors know about his condition.
While Scott Routley is still trapped in his body, he finally has a way to reach out to the people around him. This finding has huge implications.
this is terrifying.
the thought of being awake in a coma. of being trapped in your own body.

My theory: Margaery was the one who slipped the poison in the drink, not Lady Olenna.
I know that in the book, it’s highly implied that Olenna was the one who poisoned him, but since this is an adaptation, it’s possible they changed it. Basically, here’s why I think Margaery was the one who did it.
Firstly, the show establishes very well that Margaery is smart, and she is one of the few people who can manipulate Joffrey. She is definitely capable of pulling off an assassination, and in the parts of the episode leading up to the pie scene, Margaery had little moments here and there where she tried to deflect the attention from Joffrey to something else, presumably trying to pick the right moment to poison him. As we know, Olenna was the one who took the poison from the crystal in Sansa’s necklace, so at some point in the wedding, she must have given the crystal to Margaery.
Also, in the pie scene above, there are three tables behind Joffrey. There’s the Lannister table, the Tyrell table, and there’s one in the middle, where no one is sitting. In the first two gifs, Joffrey hands his goblet to Margaery, and she places it on the middle table. We can also see that Olenna is watching, because we all know she’s in on it, but there’s a problem here. In the third gif where Joffrey is about to slice open the pie, we can see a guard standing behind that middle table. That shot doesn’t show Margaery or Lady Olenna, but in order for Olenna to slip the poison in the goblet, she would have had to get up from her table, and walk over to the middle table with the guard, where she would clearly get noticed. It’s likely that when Joffrey has his sword out, Margaery (who was still standing in front of the middle table) quickly slipped the poison in there while everyone was watching Joffrey. Yes, the guard was still there, but he would have been more likely to notice someone actually getting up from the Tyrell table and walking over to the middle one.
