Supposedly during a call to tech support about (it finally turns out) a failed CD drive:

"The automatic coffee cup holder won't retract or open anymore"

Almost anything posted by PopCornPuffs

Seeing Yet another anti-atheist thread in ED.

Trying to explain peak oil to a co-worker:

"Plastic is Oil?"
(what scares me more is this person being a Registered Nurse and ME being only a Registered Practical Nurse is technically better educated than I am)

This last one wasn't a face palm but a drop my coffee cup on the floor and beg to be told she was joking:

RN's statement when I wondered why an ambulance took over an hour and half. to arrive for a resident who clearly had suffered a stroke:

"Oh, I didn't call them until the family came and said it was okay to send her out."

I wish. This RN just never gave it any thought.

The reason why the very last one went beyond 'facepalm' is simply: If have a stroke I have minutes to get you an ambulance, and they have less than an hour to get you to a stroke specialized emergency unit. But if we/they suceed that unit has good odds of preventing the worst and reversing the not so bad.

If you fart around for an hour deciding weather or not the professionals have the best interests of you loved one at heart... it's done. The stroke will be completed.

Had I realized what a numpty my RN was I would have called the ambulance myself and begged forgiveness after. I refused to work on that unit for over year... literally because of that incident. I didn't trust myself to be civil to that RN.

I sympathize wholeheartedly. Strokes run in my family, I've tried educating myself to signs & procedures, but hopefully I'll never have to use this knowledge.
Plz pardon my ignorance, but would socialized health care have been influencing a medical decision?

Personally I would say yes, it could. After all you're looking at a society that's better informed due to a more universal health awareness with its citizens.

OK, this was what I wrote on Canada Day:

If you mean the government somehow prevented the client from getting the care she needed, no. It was moral cowardice on the part of an RN who is is probably working in long term care because she can't HANDLE the hospital environment. She let a non-professional dictate to her because she's used to bowing to the demands of clients' families.

Now it MIGHT be that this lady had been sent to Emergency in the past and the family wanted to make sure that the 50 bucks that OHIP doesn't cover off an Ambulance ride was not being wasted. (also going the hospital is stressful for clients and some nurses throw up their hands and send off mildly sick patients to the hospital at the drop of a hat. But a STROKE is not a frivoulous hospital ride the math is simple. CALL NOW -- maybe beat the stroke entirely. Wait an hour... you're @#$%$'ed.)

you're absolutely right about the black block. but ...

there were about 150 of them. The cops had them penetrated (intelligence supposedly new whence they were coming) The extra micro cams all over downtown CAUGHT THEM CHANGING.

The army was behind the cops, The cops were just about ALL the RCMP and every cop who would come from their home cities to toronto, AND so many hired security guards they were shipping them from ALBERTA. There were maybe 25 000 peaceful protesters downtown and the ratio of cops to them was probably 1 cop for every 1.3 protesters.

They spent a billion on Security
They enacted secret laws and then applied them errononeously.

With all that... WHO THE @#$#@$#@# was out for a doughnut the first hour of the protests to leave three cop cars untended and then sit around insisting that 1000s of cops stay put for half an hour while less than half a percent of the protestors rampaged infront of the cameras of national television.

The result.. a total crackdown down on the protests, then end of debate about the secret laws, the end of complaints on a billion dollars on security.

People getting dragged into unmarked vans by plainclothes Co... agents? mercenaries? (WTF? When'd we become a banana republic?)
Crowds blocked in all directions by cordons who ordered them to disperse towards the other cordons.


I think the events of the G20 were a disgusting example of how quickly the wrong people could turn Canada into a police state.

Well Played, Tony Blair, Well Played.

That's what I don't get either, it's as if they deliberately wanted those individuals to start rioting. Even though they were obviously identified and were put under surveillance as a result.

I can't help but to think that the security were intended to look incompetent, but aside from political reason I've no idea why would they even wanna make a fool out of themselves. Could it simply be that they too didn't like the G20 summit either? But that would imply that this practical joke cost the Canadians one billion, and it's not even remotely funny.

It had a very simple goal. for the rest of the weekend the cops had carte blanche. And it bloody well worked. At least until some people realised A) what the cops DID with that lettre de cachet and that they had been played.

Gotta love Canada for it's value of freedom of expression and transparency. Our Canadian humor cannot work without it.

Yesterday when I was having a conversation on the phone and I remembered I was also texting someone. I got up and starting looking around, mumbling to myself "Where is my phone??" and the person on the other line reminds me that I am USING it.

I have moments like these all the time....
