Was thinking the weans must be getting bored cause of lockdown but its a year old lol they sound like scottish weans too lol honestly not surprised its scottish weans lol some of the dumb shit you do to amuse yourself as a kid in Scotland although tbf I did grow up in the 80s and we didn't have computers or phones or much of anything techie. I think I had a ZD Spectrum lol it was shit though I never had any games and I used to write hundreds of lines of code just to make the screen flash pink lol my cousins at least had paperboy which I was always shit at cause they would never let me play long enough to get good. Did have an atari though, only game I remember was frogger and decathlon, fkn 1500 meter race seriously killed my arm lol Have always been shit at games.

Learning to play chess, fkn hard, so far havent won a single game but I only started a couple of days ago and I at least remember the rules, most of them anyway, like what pieces can or cant do lol maybe one day I'll win one, its on the easiest level too lmao best way to make myself feel dumb as shit but hey its something I can do for small periods of time in between doing other stuff for small periods of time :p

so glad it was the 1990s I was around with headaches and not the 1890's :eek:
was just thinking how brutal this is but much like a lot of medical treatments in history, was thinking with my Chiari Malformation this could have killed me, then I remembered my last MRI!! Fucking torture, the one I had a few years before that wasnt as bad. If it was Id have remembered it but the second one was terrible, the banging was so loud it reverbated through your whole body. It seemed to take ages and just when I thought they were about to tell me I was done they said I was half way through. You get a button to press and I was so close, the only thing that kept me going was that I needed it done and I doubt they could have got me out then back in again.

I seriously wonder about they way they test a lot of things, even nowdays, cervical smear tests are painful as fuck, lumbar punctures, ECT, chiropractice (prob wrong name for that one) prostrate examinations, mammograms. Its like legal assault!! One time my daughter went to see a neurologist, guy was such a total prick, had his hands on her face and without any warning he turned her head from side to side, really really fast, both of us were so shocked, she was crying, if anybody besides a doctor done something like that to someone that would be assault. She has EDS and recently diagnosed with damage to her cervical spine, he should not have touched her, that could have done her serious damage. It was a few years ago now but I wished we had put in a formal complaint.

OK that is pretty cool but I wonder about the medical equipment they would need? It would be great for rescues in hard to get to places or floods etc Would they be able to lift someone to a hospital then you have to consider whether the person could even be transported.

But as I said what about the medical equipment I mean I doubt they are going to be able to easily fly about carrying heavy medical equipment. Defibrilator or whatever its called, oxygen, stretchers I dunno. I feel like theres gonna be a huge downside to this and its definitely not likely to benefit joe public... :(

If anything it'll be the public that funds it, itll be expensive and probably not available to that many people, especially the ones that will be out of pocket from it as it usually seems to go.

Yeah, it seems to me that his purpose is to be first on site until others arrive, say a helicopter or boat that arrives later. I can't see him being all that useful on his own.
