my most memorable ER experience was just after the 2011 tornado here - it hit one of the two local hospitals, so all casualties were being sent to the other hospital, including as many patients from the damaged one as they could manage...

my mother-in-law and her husband had been in the path of the tornado and had been taken to the ER, but their injuries were not life-threatening; knowing what I do about the triage procedures for this type of emergency, I knew they would never be seen timely - we decided to pick them up and take them home to their hospital (about 20 miles away)...

if you've never been in a hospital with no electricity - it's creepy; no bright lights, no air-conditioning, and no background music.... it's a horror-movie setting that completely unnerves you...






now - back to our regularly-scheduled mayhem...
I once spent three days in a hospital ER, as a patient. Bizarre experience. There was electricity which produced light but it was in the tropics and the airconditioning was pretty minimalist and there was no piped music, just the noises from the other customers suffering from whatever they were suffering. And it was in a foreign country that used a language I do not know so all I understood was the shift handover recitations of each patient's problems, conducted in English - presumably to keep it secret from the customers.

Background music?


In a hospital?

I am an empiricist, since stones flying towards windscreens is associated with broken windscreens I believe it is a predictable event. But the point made by the paper was that while association is clearly visible,the conclusion of cause is something which cannot actually be seen.

I do not recall seeing anyone in this thread saying that they ate haggis. Tonight I ate some haggis, and a couple of nights back I had some. The haggis I got comes as a sausage, but not with the traditional skin. The instructions said to cook in the microwave for some time OR to steam it. Two nights ago I used the microwave and the haggis went too hard. Not good. Today I steamed it which is good. Tastes quite good. The ingredients start with Lamb lungs, and the is other stuff in there.

Yesterday I went to Oxford and bought some cheese at the cheese shop in the covered market. They are pretty good. Got a couple of cheeses - one was a '1000 day Edam' and the other was covered in some kind of leaves, need to go back to find out what it was. Both taste good, with quite a mature bite.

I think it's changed but a friend from Illinois told me, some years back, that if you have a chipped windshield get behind an IL state truck, get the plate number, report that a rock flew from it, and the state would pay for repairs.
Unethical for sure.

Perhaps a photo of some very rare beef helps... It is food. Only not yet prepared.
