modern Rip Van-Winkle

Imagine waking up after being in a coma for 19 years. That's what happened to 65-year-old Polish man Jan Grzebski. He awoke to a new world where his children were married, he had 11 grandchildren, and his country was now a democracy.

His wife Gertrude is the real hero in this story. She turned him every hour of every day for those 19 years so that he wouldn't get bed-sores. Kind of puts a new light on the expression "It's always too soon to quit" -- or any other maxim about perseverance, for that matter.
