(Undated)  —  A man in China recently woke up from a year-long coma after nurses waved cash under his nose.  According to the “Daily Mirror,” the patient passed out back in August 2013 after supposedly staying up for a week straight researching business ideas in an Internet cafe.  Doctors say his family told him he was driven by his love of money, so they decided to experiment with fresh bank notes in their efforts to wake him up.  A 100 Yuan bill — worth about 16 dollars — eventually did the trick.  His doctors say they’ve never seen anything like it, although they explain that memories of smell and sound can be very powerful stimulants.
