okay, you’ve probably seen this around on tumblr, and read somewhere along the lines of “THIS IS SOMEONE DYING WHILE HAVING AN MRI SCAN”
well. that’s NOT true. this gif is from the Walking Dead, a t.v show. No one actually died while having an MRI scan.
BUT what is true, is that this could be a representation of what actually happens. 
Researchers planted electrodes in 6 mice, and then killed them afterwards by injecting them with poison. What they found is that immediately after their heart’s stopped beating, there was a surge of brain activity. For 30 entire seconds, there was continuous, heightened brain activity. Their brain suddenly seemed to go into overdrive, showing all the hallmarks not only of consciousness but a kind of hyperconsciousness.

Images from an epidemic.

Shots in and around Kailahun, Sierra Leone where the worst Ebola outbreak ever recorded continues unabated.
The latest bad news is that the lead doctor at the largest government-run Ebola isolation ward has now also come down with the disease.

Chief Ebola doctor contracts the deadly virus
The doctor leading the fight against the world’s deadliest Ebola outbreak in Sierra Leone has contracted the virus, according to government officials.
Sheik Umar Khan has been admitted to a hospital in the Eastern province of Sierra Leone and is undergoing treatment.
The 39-year-old doctor is considered a national hero and is credited for treating scores of people suffering from the virus.
Health Minister Miatta Kargbo said she would “do anything and everything in my power to ensure he survives.”
Ebola is spread by a virus that is initially transmitted from wild animals; it has a high fatality rate and no cure. The virus kills up to 90 percent of those infected, however patients have a better chance of survival if the virus is detected early on.
According to the United Nations, 630 people have died since the virus was detected in Guinea in February and the virus has spread across borders and into several West African countries like Liberia. Symptoms of Ebola include high fever, vomiting, internal and external bleeding as well as diarrhea.
Khan seemed aware of the risks involved with dealing with Ebola, telling Reuters late last month “I am afraid for my life, I must say, because I cherish my life.”
He also said “Health workers are prone to the disease because we are the first port of call for somebody who is sickened by disease.”

Begotten (1990)
If you are looking for an experimental horror film to watch, go for this one if you can stomach it. It re-imagines the story of Genesis. The story opens with a robed, profusely bleeding “God” disemboweling himself, with the act ultimately ending in his death. It’s in black and white and has absolutely no dialogue. The words “experimental horror” are the best way to describe this film.

Inmate takes 2 hours to die in Arizona execution
NBC News: An execution in Arizona took nearly two hours on Wednesday, and the inmate’s lawyers claimed he gasped and snorted for nearly an hour after it began.
Joseph Wood, who was condemned to death for fatally shooting his girlfriend and her father in 1989, was scheduled to be killed with a combination of midazolam and hydromorphone, the same drugs used in an Ohio execution in which the inmate took 25 minutes to die.
