I saw a person have a siezure today on my way home from the university. He was at a bus stop and I was on the top of the double-decker bus. There were people just staring at him as he thrashed about on the pavement and screamed and frothed. I’ve seen animals have seizures, but it’s far scarier seeing one of your own species flapping around uncontrollably. The bus driver called an ambulance for him, but geez. What were those people thinking? Just staring. I wouldn’t want to be a sideshow like that, would you?
