Professionals.

I do appreciate of course that, in the modern NHS each and every simple task requires that the practitioner have special training. Everything from wiping bottoms to opening the window seems to require a certificate allowing the holder to proceed.

I also accept that giving morphine tablets to patients in accordance with a prescription obviously requires a special expertise, gained on a course, and certified in writing.

But I can't help thinking that someone who doesn't hold such an important qualification should have a better way of communicating it than..........

"I DON'T GIVE ORAL"

Fucking nurses these days. Aren't they just rubbish?

Education

This is meant as a criticism of the USA, but remember when the UK was the same?  See the parallels here to see how low the UK has sunk

Result.

A few weeks ago I commented on a newspaper article warning of the type of scam that DZ has been warning about for over 4 years. I've checked my stats and discovered something quite gratifying. Most of my posts attract only about 100 views, making me wonder why I still bother posting really. But this post has to date been hit on over 330,000 times and is still getting 400 hits every day. All my scam warning posts together have accrued nearly half a million hits. That makes it all worthwhile. If just a small fraction of those hits have resulted in someone not being taken to the cleaners then I've deprived the scammers of many thousands of pounds. Yeah!
Another reason to stay anonymous I think.

More pareidoilia

The evangelical christians are forever exhorting us to "let Jesus into our heart". It looks like this guy has done that literally. Is it just me or does he look as if he's trying to get out?

If he is I understand this is how.

Bollocks

I understand that you can win a Darwin award without dying. The only requirement is that you "remove yourself from the gene pool"
So I think that these 400 men all qualify.

Another man with his head up his arse

An arse that has been soundly, and deservedly kicked. If, as appears possible, the Lib Dems are consigned to history in the next election this is the one triumph they should be remembered for.

Free from! (Sense)

Yesterday's Guardian had a nice article about the rise of the gluten free diet, the latest pseudo scientific preoccupation of the worried well. I didn't give it too much thought. I've seen this sort of phenomenon many times before.

But today I found something that takes this to it's most absurd extreme.

That's right. Gluten free cosmetics! WTF!  Do ordinary cosmetics contain any gluten? Does even the most seriously affected coeliac sufferer have a problem with gluten on the skin?

There are people out there who will sell you dog shit if they could get you to buy it.
And with attention to presentation there are people who would buy it.
