* The WNYC program {{Radiolab}} reported the story of [[http://www.emiliegossiaux.com/ Emilie Gossiaux]], who suffered a traumatic brain injury that left her unable to communicate with the outside world. Or was she? It was unusually hard to tell, since Emilie was deaf, and the accident robbed her of her sight. You can listen to it [[http://www.radiolab.org/2011/jan/25/finding-emilie/ here]]; it's absolutely riveting.

** Speaking of reptiles, if their prey is sufficently large (say, bigger than a duck), [[CruelAndUnusualDeath dying at the hands of a reptile becomes a slow and painful experience]]. There is an online video of an Alligator snapping turtle that caught a Mallard by the leg. As the bird tries to get away, the turtle just tightens its grip on the leg, slowly snapping the bird's leg bones one by one. Hours later, the duck slowly lapses into exhaustion and it presumably has to endure being EatenAlive.

Added DiffLines:

** Which arguably makes it even worse. Humans, at least, have the cognitive capacity to understand what happened if they find themselves unable to move. A fly, for instance, wouldn't. All it would know is that it hit something hard and now it ''can't move no matter how hard it tries'', and it won't ever be able to understand why.
*** On the other hand, insect nervous systems are so non-centralized that the fly's brain understands very little of what its body does, typically. Ever had stomach cramps or indigestion or something, and had no idea why? That's a bit like how a fly feels about its entire body most of the time.

* When you try to kill a bug, but it barely survives and you don't notice. That poor fly is lying on the pavement, unable to fly or do anything other than wiggle its legs, until either someone [[MercyKill kills it properly]] or it dies on its own of starvation. Luckily for bugs, they have very simple nervous systems and don't feel pain the way humans do -- but try telling that to your imagination.
