    Staged. I’ve seen many people emerge from anesthesia, and it would be gross malpractice to give anyone still this “out of it” anything solid to eat due to the risk of aspiration. Some people will do anything to get on YT. Cute though! Cheaper than buying flowers for cheap guys.

    I remember trying to reach my alcohol saturation level at a party, while doing one leg stands to test the saturation level. So long as I had breathing control, it felt stable. Moment I took a nap, alcohol saturated the blood stream (liver efficiency went down due to lack of oxygen) and my senses when waking up felt slow and groggy, especially my balance.
     
    Same feeling I get sometimes when I wake up from sleep on the wrong sleep cycle. Even taking one step tips over the balance forward too much. It’s like all the oxygen has been funneled away from my motor command centers.
     
    I needed to know how much of my motor control functions I could maintain while drinking X amount over Y time. As it would help in judging what my tactical options would be in an emergency.

    Caped–
     
    When I had surgery many years ago, I had it twelve hours later than it had been originally scheduled. So by the time I came out of surgery, it had been over 24 hours since I had eaten. When I was in recovery, the gave me a saltine because I was so RAVENOUSLY  hungry–and miserable. It was one saltine, and some ice chips. But at that point, it sure seemed like I was eating prime rib!
