      Yes.  "Clinical death" is a precisely term that is not synonymous with the common usage of the term "death".  You can be clinically dead yet conscious for a brief period of time.  I don't think anyone would consider a conscious individual to be dead.

       

      Ok, got it.  Thanks!

          I've read a couple before that were pretty disturbing.  From a quick Google into the recent article you reference it sounds...well...worse.

            Duel in the Sun ... reminds me of a running partner of mine who used to post a lot here - JimHowe.  He's 65 or so and he has his rivals from back in the day.  They race as hard and are as competitive with each other as ever but the times are not quite what they used to be.  He descirbes a recent tough, back and forth battle with one his rivals as his "Duel in the Shade".

              I can't think of Duel in the Sun without thinking of the sheer volume of painkillers that Beardsley consumed.  It was enough to kill an elephant.  A mere mortal couldn't have handled that volume of those drugs.  I like Beardsley.  If you get a chance to see him speak at a race expo it is well worth it.  He's a funny guy.

                Did he make his own singlet out of recycled 6-pack rings?  If so, awesome... as long as he cut it up after to save the baby seagulls.

                  I have a question! I have a question!

                   

                  See that little logo in the upper corner of his six pack singlet???

                   

                  We've all seen it before.  It is two women (who may or may not be naked) sitting back to back.

                   

                  What the heck is that the logo of/for?  I see that thing all the time, especially in Europe, and I've never known.

                   

                  Side note: I've never seen AS in a public speaking gig, but I've talked to him a few times.  Both he and DB... like a great many superstar runners... are super duper nice to converse with.

                   

                    I think it is the logo of a soccer team.

                      Ah. So.  Thanks.

                       

                      Googling "two naked chicks sitting back to back" was fun. And damned if I didn't get the same Kappa wiki page.

                       

                      I'd always been scared to google that before.

                            I spent another 45 seconds on his Wiki page.

                             

                            It said something like "holds world record for most consecutive PR's in marathon with 13".  Which doesn't sound that impressive until I saw his first was 2:47 and his second was 2:33.  Yeah... that might make it harder.
