Anesthetics are a wonderful thing. Aside from protecting our fragile psyches from the horrors of witnessing a trained professional go all choppin'-broccoli on our insides, they also allow for a certain level of hilarity that's difficult to emulate without the assistance of modern chemistry. Need proof? Look no further than the video after the jump. In it, reader Matt is knocked out cold in preparation for the removal of his wisdom teeth. With his body trapped in an oral surgeon's chair, Matt's mind apparently retreated to the safety of somewhere a little more comforting – somewhere like the driver's seat of his favorite sports car.
While Matt says he has no recollection of the entire surgery, office staff and family members say that he was slamming gears the entire time he was out. We do have to commend him on a well-executed heel-toe downshift, but it looks like that missed shift from third to fourth likely cost him the championship. There's always next year, man. Hit the jump to check out the clip for yourself. Thanks for the good sense of humor and the tip, Matt!
