Brains

Dear fellow coma victims, Given mine has been damaged by coma I began thinking about brains, the brain is an amazing organ. The human brain has created a machine brain, artificial intelligence, which has memory and can also derive meaning. Memory is a critical thing for intelligence. My memory is bad after coma.

Brexit

Russia influenced the US election by cyber warfare. Through social media, Hillary's emails, hacking etc, Russia tried getting into the minds of Americans to influence their vote.

Stick

Dear fellow coma victims, Time to try walking without my stick again. I attempted that 2 years ago but wasn't successful, maybe this time. I'm an old man now who might require a stick anyway.
