Only in Kentucky...

This could very well be one of those "Only in X, folks!" type of situation. But, what's a good way to prevent a patient from overdosing on medication? Use rocket fuel! :doh:

Pill bottle could deter drug abuse

Dispenser would incinerate contents if dosage exceeded

 

 

Basically, the idea is you put the pills next to a mickey of rocket fuel so that if a person tries to forcibly take more than the dose out of the bottle, it will IGNITE the pills and destroy them! Am I the only one who sees a problem here? :rolleyes: What about contamination with the medicine? Or if the system goes off due to a false positive?

I'm lucky that I don't take medication, I'm also lucky that I don't live in the USA.

 

But that is a stupid idea. I think it is just to gain money from blowing up the tablets the patient just got an hour ago, and having to buy more. Also, people can extract the rocket fuel and make their own bombs or rockets with it. I think it's stupid :doh: .

What if you drop your pill on the floor--as I just did--and need another one.

 

This sounds like a joke. Surely someone's going to try to open the bottle again, get 3rd degree burns from their clothes catching on fire and the company will be sued out of existence and the executives sent to Club Fed for negligence.

 

But ya never know. Who would have figured anyone would have invaded Russia in 1940 when two of the three previous attempts had ended in utter disaster--but that didn't stop 'Dolph baby, did it? (Charles XII in 1709 and Napoleon in 1812; only Kaiser Wilhelm II managed to invade, defeat and conquer large stretches of Russia--only to be forced to give it all up when his armies collapses on the Western Front).

Dude! What's with the gratuitous slap at the country which protects yours? Attacking NZ is the same as attacking the US under the ANZUS treaty. We've also been Allies in two World Wars plus (most of) the Cold War.

 

I've never heard an American speak ill of NZ; I see no reason for your doing the reverse.

 

Perhaps I misunderstand you? Perhaps what you mean is, "I really love New Zealand, wouldn't live in anywhere else." And that's cool. I'm not keen on living anywhere but the US and a patriot myself. All that socialism--could never hang with that.

 

(However, millions of New Zealanders, Australians and Canadians can't wait to move to this country and give up their former citizenships; my wife works with two Canadians who are working toward their US citizenship.)

 

A lot of American boys are at the bottom of the Pacific because they fought to keep the Japanese from turning your grandparents into slaves.

 

New Zealanders are excellent soldiers (if not, as Sir John Keegan put it, as good as they are in their own minds). But you're a tiny, tiny country.

 

Without Peter Jackson and Sir Edmund Hillary (sp?) where would you be? A side-trip on Australian vacations.

One thing I learned today, Minty:

 

Your home town is the home of the International Bluegrass Hall of Fame.

 

Pete Seeger (that old Stalinist) is donating his banjo. Granted, that's a big who gives a shit, unless you're currently hugging a tree, but it's interesting that the Bluegrass Hall of Fame is there.

 

Also, Limbaugh talked to your senior Senator today who was also in O-------o. Don't know what good ol' Mitch was doing there (one of my favorite Senators); maybe he lives there.

Oh, boy... here it goes! :focus:

 

 

We're all off to meet about this over in the Beta forum as we type. =))

Yes, there is. And as for Mitch, well, he's Mitch! He's just liked by everyone around here. Even I, when bored in American History class one day, drew him from a take off on a poster of him in the room as Jack Nicholson's Joker because of Mitch's famous grin. He was born in Alabama but raised in Louisville, so, he's really an Alabamian. But, like how Johnny Depp was born here in town but he isn't called a Kentuck because he was here so little a time. Around here, if you ain't talking about Mitch, you're talking about the nigh god incarnate Wendell Ford. :lol:

 

 

And, seeing as how he's the Majority Whip, (Christ! I first typoed Whipe! =))) seeing him anywhere makes sense.

It came across that way?

 

I didn't mean it that way--as I know you know. :thumbup:

 

Just rubbed me the wrong way.

 

it's one thing to say, "I love living in "Fill in the Blank."

 

Imagine if I said, "Thank God I don't live in New Zealand"--that guy would have gone apopolectic.

 

I don't even have a problem if people criticize our government--who doesn't criticize their own government? If you live in China, I can understand singing the party line--doing otherwise could land your ass in the Chicom GULAG.

 

But I just do NOT like it when people from countries for which we've spilled blood to protect to dis us.

 

It just ain't cool.

 

It was like that Canadian junior minister, bureaucrat, or whatever, called the Prez, "stupid." And then didn't have the class to apologize. It's one thing for a private citizen to say shit like that. But to insult the leader of your ally and closest trading partner?

 

It was like that goddamn Natalie Mains. It's one thing to dis the Prez in Texas, Washington State or Attu (one of the Aleutian Islands for those of you in Rio Linda). It's another thing to go to a foreign country and then do it. It was the same as when the Former-Rapist-in-Chief went to Moscow--during the Cold War and marched in an anti-Vietnam war rally.

 

When one is outside the borders of one's country, be patriotic or shut the fuck up. julli-banneds.gif But I don't really have strong feelings about it or anything. B)

Along with "Never throw shit at an armed man."

 

There's, "never get into a slap fest with a Russian."

 

It's a sport over there. Two guys take turns slapping each other silly until one of them passes out.

 

Of course, they did invent Russian Roulette.

 

 

Please note: that if you feel I've insulted your country, I have ancestors from every country on Earth, every religion, ethnic group, sexual orientation, creed and color.

 

 

It's a slap fest !!!!! =))

Join the Party! Goose step in time!

Join the Party! Goose step in time!

Obey the orders or you'll die!

Join the Party! Goose step in time!

 

 

Who would have thought, 10 years ago, when I made that up, that the one person who laughed at it would become my girlfriend... :unsure:

I've lived all over the world, Malaya, HongKong, Germany, Thailand, NewZeland and even Nepal. Now that it's time to settle down I'm quite looking forward to starting a new life in VA in the new year. :D

Actually, he was a comte or count (earl is the English equivalent for those of you in Rio Linda).

 

Sorry, but restraining the urge to be a wiseass for me would be like finding a naked Salma Hayek :wub: in my hotel room and then walking out. NOT!!!

 

 

Just rub salt in the wound, Minty. Salt in the wound. julli-rasende.gif

 

 

 

Are you kidding? I'd pull a Kung Pow: Enter The Fist! I'd use salt, lemon juice, and mercury on the wound! :devil: I would then legally change my name to Mark K. Desaad.

Now, how is that being a wiseass? Wiseass implies you're trying to one up me after being one upped already. All you're doing here is proving that you had somewhat advanced knowledge of the son of Monsieur Jean-Bastiste Francois Joseph de Sade and Madame Marie-Eleonore de Maille de Carman. :D And, yet, despite such a rich history of nomenclature, he was played in a movie by someone with the name of Nick Mancuso! =))

I know Western Europe has similar issues. I remember a row (love that word) between Paris on London because the Frogs were doing nothing to stop illegal aliens from using the Chunnel to enter England.

 

Any rich country next to a poor country is going to have a problem with illegal immigration.

 

As long as our countries are having to build fences to keep fuckers out we must be doing something.

 

Immigration is not, per se, a bad thing. It's one of the reasons we aren't facing the demographic crises that Japan (especially) but also Western Europe are facing. Nearly every West European country has either negative or very low (1%+) population growth. Our population is growing at about 3%/yr.

 

Militarily this is good news. But also for the economy. We are not nearly the inverted pyramid of massive numbers of retirees being supported by an ever diminishing number of young workers.

 

Our entitlements are imminently fixable. The only thing lacking is the will to do something. Now that the Hard Core Left of the Democratic Party controls Congress, you can be damned sure NOTHING will be done about it.

 

They were successful at blocking the necessary reforms as a minorty. As the majority, no meaning proposals will ever see the light of day.

 

E.g.: in Italy, 60% of Italian kids are onlys! Here in the US European-American women have an average of 3.4 kids (I wanna meet one of the .4's). Mexican, Central, South American immigrant women have an average of 5.

 

Parents, i.e. voters, with one child are far more likely to favor a wimp-ass foreign policy (sorry to tip-toe around it) than a country where families have 3 to 5 kids. Our conscription laws, for example, always exempt the youngest son so that the family named won't become extinct.

 

If there's every another draft, it's almost certainly going to include women. Sooner or later the insane error of putting women in front line combat units will be made; hell it's already the defacto reality anyway. We should have followed the Israeli example. They tried women in front-line units. It was a mess. Not because men felt "protective" of women soldiers, but because the men exerted themselves, often fatally, in order to impress their women comrades with their studliness. When the metal hits the meat, studliness don't mean shit. Ask any combat veteran.

 

A study done by the US Army analyzing WWII found that only 25% of soldiers actually fired their weapons at the enemy. Most hunkered down and did the nature, if not exactly admirable, thing.

 

The Islamofacsists aren't going away except by way of the nine grams of lead cure. And....

 

....it's just that simple.

If the opportunity arose I would happily move the family to Australia (Brisbane being my preference) or the US with Florida again my first choice. :)

 

 

 

 

Crule!!!

 

Not Florida! >_<

 

It's a sewer.

 

You'd be much better off choosing Nevada, Utah, Colorado, Arizona, even Idaho, Wyoming or Montana (if you can deal with the sub-arctic climate in the winter; makes Scotland look like an indoor park). Unless, of course, you like hurricanes and two inch long roaches* and alligators that have been known to snack on kids (*and I'm not talking about the kind that are cool to find). Not to mention that Florida's the only state in the US with tropical and sub-tropical jungle.

 

No, Florida's a shit hole. My parents went to Miami for the '94 Superbowl and they were appalled at just how disgusting it was.

 

Southern California is a far more beautiful, far more comfortable place to live. Well, it was when I was a kid. Now it's makes the late USSR look a capitalist haven. The People's Republic of California is no joke, mi amigo.
