Thank you so much for posting this. The mapgeek in me just had a big smile. I completely agree with Douglas2. I tend to have multiple maps. But, I did have to go buy a globe to be something to show my kids a better representation.

Maybe this shows the type of nerd I am...but I didn't think engagement ring with this. I imagined the planet Midnight from a very good episode of Doctor Who. It's actually a bit of a scary episode, an excellent hour of television!

I completely agree. It is one of the best episodes since it started back up...maybe even all the years. I even used it as an into to help get my wife to start watching the show. It worked!

Being originally from Grand Rapids, I found this video great. Though the economy in Michigan sucks overall, Grand rapids has the feel of being able to ride it out and is far from dying.

I agree with many of the posts above. Sadly, this is not a Neatorama worthy post. Bariatric ambulances are actually quite common now. The surprising but it how far behind the times this Boston service is. I am glad there are bariatric units out there because they have saved a multitude of medics from loosing their careers to back injuries. Enabling obesity? I believe there is a lot more involved doing that a long time before an ambulance is involved. But it does go along with a question I have discussed with my coworkers: Which came first? The scooter or not being able to walk? Now think about it. In most cases I have found people who had trouble walking..got a scooter..then decided to stop walking...thereby then needing a scooter from then on out.

Another related thought...at one of my local services, the bariatric unit is sometimes too small...think about that. The super obese are out there too. Usually the cot is strong enough, the winch and vehicle are strong enough...it just that they are too wide to fit. The trucks can't get any wider and safely travel down most city streets. But, just think of that.

The plastic bag & blankets I don't find that interesting, kind of a simple obvious solution that goes well with training..like stated above. But, I do have to say kudos to the medic because it was such a small preme that I am sure it was a stressful run. Good job!

I suspect this survey is fundamentally flawed due to it using an online survey to study if people met online. this limits it's source to those who are obviously online already. though that is a large amount, it is not a true representative of the general population. Still a significant number, but not what they are trying to make it out to be. I take this as a marketing survey more than a scientific survey.

I agree with Medic. What he did was extremely simple medically. But, I do give him a lot of credit for keeping his head about him during a very stressful moment for him. I also salute the people who trained him for just such a situation!

my first thought is that I have a picture that looks just like this..but not cut in half.....hmmmm...

But, the important comment is that the title of the post needs to be fixed....Cambodia, NOT Vietnam.

I recommend going to Isle Royale National Park in Lake Superior. The Northern Lights are visible in the summer, like people have said. but, I still would wait until late summer. The reason for going to Isle Royale is because there is very very little light "pollution" out in the middle of the big lake and so you get really dark nights...and good viewing conditions for the northern lights as well as the whole milky way. www.nps.gov/isro

This video did a darn good job of showing what vertigo feels/looks like to e when i've had it. You know things aren't moving like they look like they are...but you see it anyway. though this has more the trippy effect than the nausea of vertigo.

These pictures are great. Not disgusting at all. I'd actually like to see pics of cysts for comparison. A friend of mine recently had 10 folicles at once (undergoing fertility treatments) a pic like those above make it obvious why she was in a lot of pain!

This problem should be blamed on the hospital and it's administrators, not the country the hospital is in. We have similar problems in the US. It's not uncommon to take a pt to the ER and have them put "in the hallway" either a bed or chair in the ER hallway, hoping a room can open soon. Yes, they'll get care, but not the same level as if they were in a room...not cardiac monitors in the hallway...nurses just taking extra pts to cover hallway pts, so they really don't want them...they are already spread too thin by that time....at least in the ambulance there is a medic right there for them...mind you this also stinks becuase the ambulance likely needs to leave to make other runs, so this would negatively effect the whole city/area the hospital is in.

8th Grade. I was lucky enough to be in my schools first computer class. Given that we tended to be the honor roll type students and the only students in the class, we got the pirk of doing some special projects including using Compuserve and talking about the news. Well, the day was a big day and the TV was on.

Then it happened.

The main news events I can think of right now for while I was in grade school were Mt St. Helens erruption, Challenger explosion and Desert Shield/Desert Storm. where were you when....

There are actually different chest options you can choose. It's just a removable piece or rubber. That I think is actually the female version. The mail version does not look like it has pecs.

I liked this...less is more on the explination. A lot like old Twilight Zone and Outer Limits shows. Things do not need explaining...it's more about the tension and feelings of those in the story.

I'm not sure of the changeling idea, though possible. I think it's possible they are near dead people mutilated through the experience. The real mystery is how the personalized holes got there and why. But, again the greatness in the story comes from NOT explaining this.

Sadly, I now live in E'ville and work in the EMS system there. Though, not all of Evansville is represented by this *lovely* couple, I would say I have met many people like them.

My comments:

1. Yes, he was a stupid drunk man. The chimney? WTF

2. Her reactions on camera make this video even better and I have met LOTS of women in E'vill elike her. Sad, but true. Way too violent.

3. Was the TV reporter sitting on the ground in front of the A-Team van?

The range of the one we got wasn't too far but not bad. My boys would use it for stuff 6ish feet away. I know it's not good for catching speeders but, we never really tried it on other things. I guess it's time to dig it out of the toy box and change the batteries. The coolest part was that you could change it from real-world speed to hot wheels scale speed. It would tell you how fast that little car was moving if it were a full size car.

Hey! My son actually got that for Christmas last year. Calling it a laptop is just because of the keyboard. It really just asks you to hit certain buttons for each little game it has. Most of it is slightly edutainment. My son's favorite part is the music it played when you open it.
