No filming please

So I just saw yet another video of someone waking up from anesthesia and saying weird things, a kid no less. Did you know that consent comes into play in this situation? The oral surgeon’s office has signs everywhere telling people not to take video in recovery because the person does not have the capacity to give consent. It’s a legal and ethical issue. Think for a second about what we’re actually doing. We are often prompting someone in an altered and vulnerable state to say things that are strange in order to share that moment with the entire Internet. That isn’t funny at all. At best it’s exploitative.
Thank you for letting me ruin your fun. Now cut it out.
