  1. To all the people troubled by videos like this:
  2. You're forgetting the markup for the syringe, the needle, the prep pad and the bandaid. That's probably $700 right there.
  3. I had a job like that once. Positive side is that you learn a hell of a lot really fast, so when you are ready to move on you are a pro.
  4. Aw, stay cool Boats. Go after ideas, not people. But you are right, I don't know what the deal is. I used to be able to hang out with a pretty diverse group and we would all rag on each other over politics, religion, you name it and we were still all friends at the end. Now this stuff tears families apart. It's a sickness.
  5. You should be able to find a way to work it in. I know a couple PAs that own yoga studios.
  6. Spot on. My personal take is that he had 0% business being there as a juvenile. Once he was there, he unfortunately got separated from his group and found himself in an extremely bad position. He was no threat to anyone who wasn't directly attacking him. He is going to walk on almost all charges and the situation is going to explode again. Life is so much better when people just keep their hands to themselves.
  7. Dude/Dudette: Let it go. Why the anger? A big problem is that we have somehow arrived at a point where it seems it is impossible to disagree with someone without hating them. I don't think you are evil. You have different life experiences that inform your worldview. I'm sure you have very logical reasons for the beliefs you hold. So do other people. We finally have some latitude to discuss things of national interest. Playful jabs are fine. Why make it angry? The world doesn't need another Huddle full of insipid comments.
  8. That's part of the secret to recovering from burnout. Most of the time good enough is good enough.
  9. Makes you wonder if we are doing something iatrogenic to cause it. What's the "typical" course of treatment you are using?
  10. I heard some anecdotal reports of people with severe URI symptoms accompanied by loss of taste and smell not long after Thanksgiving, so this was likely around here in the community long before anyone recognized it. It's hard to armchair quarterback major things that might have been done differently. The country would not have tolerated a massive, nationwide "stay at home" order around the holidays. We could have upregulated PPE production, but we still would have run out. I hate to say it, but I think this is going to be around for a long time, and it is going to be something that pretty much everyone will catch sooner or later. The initial policy of "flatten the curve" so that resources do not get overwhelmed seems to have transitioned to "make sure no one ever catches Covid" and that is not workable.
  11. Wanting government officials to respect the limits of their office and work with other branches to effect change is not something that I would have traditionally considered limited to the "right." There are two main causes of things boiling over. One is government officials making unilateral, unconstitutional decisions to close businesses, houses of worship, restrict freedom of movement, etc. Declaring a perpetual state of emergency and issuing long series of executive orders is not the way government was designed to run. The second cause is abdicating responsibility to maintain order. If the government is going to surrender its responsibility to maintain order and let armed mobs commit arson, sooner or later business owners, home owners, and others are going to take matters into their own hands and you wind up with Kyle Rittenhouse.
  12. I don't really know enough of the details to analyze the situation, but if government officials overstep boundaries far enough or often enough, people are going to get froggy. Answer me this: would you defend a bunch of military rejects that shot up a British regiment tasked with confiscating arms outside of Boston? Why or why not?
  13. People get upset when elected officials make an end run around Constitutional limits placed on their authority. A governor might need to declare a state of emergency in the face of a developing situation until further info can be gathered. Months in, governors need to stop making unilateral decisions and involve the legislature. That's not happening in some states. Constitutional rights don't just evaporate in the face of an emergency.
  14. I like to blame social media. Suddenly every imbecile on earth has a bully pulpit (starting with celebutards).
  15. Yeah, but don't you think things are getting worse? You can't compare Congress today to 30 years ago. There's something in the water. My conspiracy theory is that it has something to do with peanut allergies. No one ever even heard of a kid with peanut allergies when I was a kid.
