    Doctors in Sweden discussed organ donation within earshot of Jimi Fritze as he lay in hospital after a stroke. The patient, however, could hear every word but couldn't protest as he couldn't move.

    Fritze, 43, suffered a stroke almost two years ago when he was out in the Gothenburg archipelago with his family.

    "I managed to catch my girlfriend's attention - I was bright red in the face. she's a nurse so she managed to keep my airways open," he told The Local.

    But as the ambulance helicopter was unable to land on the small island, Fritze had to wait for a boat to take him into Sahlgrenska hospital, where he arrived an hour and a half after the stroke.

    "Only my ears and eyes were working," Fritze said.

    After doctors looked at a scan of his brain, they went to tell the family the bad news.

    "They told my girlfriend that there was no hope," he said.
    Never steal the tires unless the car is truly dead.
    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.
