ZenTiger Brain dead means legally dead

Well, if you are brain dead, you are legally dead. They keep you on a respirator, then cut out your organs for others. Then you die. More.

Although, I've read a few cases where people have "come back" from being legally dead. You know there are always loopholes when you are dealing with the law.
Val Thomas’ doctors honestly can’t explain how she is alive today.

Thomas, who lives in West Virginia, is being called a medical miracle after she suffered two heart attacks and had no brain waves for more than 17 hours; reports

Thomas’ heart stopped around 1:30 a.m. Saturday and doctors said she had no pulse. Rigor mortis started to set in, and she was placed on a respiratory machine.

“Her skin had already started to harden and her fingers curled,” Thomas’ son, Jim, told “Death had set in.”
And then she pops up before they can slice and dice her, and says, "Aren't you the Doctor from Days of Our Lives?"

No, Scrubs.

Well at least her kids didn't try to knock her off ;-)

Imagine if they did and she came back to life - would they be pissed??!

The whole brain death and euthanasia issue could do with rational debate.
