It's not the disabled who wantb other terms. It's those who "feel"

I'm reading a novel by Francis Porretto in which the protagonist asks
his boss 'How badly to I have to screw up a project to never get
promoted to management?'

I know the feeling. Theoretically I am a manager but everyone I'm
supposed to manage has been diverted to another project and I'm happy as
a clam doing actual programming.

Exactly. I would much rather *do* something (produce something) than watch
and manage other people doing it. And any job which involves spending a
large part of each day in meetings with other people would be my idea of
hell: my definition of a meeting is a means of getting more work dumped on
me after the meeting than I had before it, but then "imprisoning" me in the
meeting room while everyone else waffles on, preventing me from actually
working on that increased workload.

I'm very much a details person: I would rather get on and make *something*
(even if that something is the wrong thing) than spend all day discussing
what the right thing is to do without actually making anything (even the
wrong thing). I find it very hard to stand back and take an overall
"helicopter view", mainly because doing so bores me rigid: I'm itching to
get into the details.

Never work on a DoD project. You'll spend a year or more talking about
what you're going to do before doing something. When you finally get
around to doing it, if you discover problems you're going to to what was
decided anyway because of all the ego involvement.

That process brought us the F-35, Zumwalt, and the matched pair of LCS
turkeys.

real project.

I must admit I use those, for example when my neighbour's elderly (ROFL) brother died. I wanted to show I was being polite, without having to bother with a long sentence describing my feelings.

Not sure why religious people care about death, aren't you meant to get another one like in a computer game?

Exactly: if it gets destroyed by the stomach acid or doesn't get absorbed
through the stomach or small intestine, then there's no point in giving it
orally (by mouth). I have no problem with injections and can barely feel the
"sharp scratch". Giving blood (as a donor or for a blood test) is more of a
problem because my veins seem to be either very deep or very fine: sometimes
the nurse has to try a couple of times in different arms to manage to get
the tip of the needle *inside* the vein rather than into the wall - and
that's a comment on my veins, not their skill. The exception was a qualified
blood donor doctor who attempted to insert the canula for me to give my pint
(very nearly an armful) and caused me a lot of pain with her fumbling;
eventually a nurse tactfully suggested the doctor needed to attend to
another patient, and the nurse got the needle into a vein quickly and
painlessly. Put me off doctors who looked like Rosa Klebb, but not off being
a blood donor ;-)

Now that *would* be painful to inject by needle ;-)

I meant to add to my earlier comment that while I hardly felt the injection,
the site of the injection felt bruised and tender for a couple of day
afterwards. Conventional flu jabs sometimes affect me like that as well.

But a very small price to pay for knowing that I'm better (not necessarily
completely) protected.

That one annoys me. Surely a medic should know the difference between a
prick and a scratch. The last time they administered inoculation via a
scratch they put live smallpox pus in.

I'm an athiest so would have no reason to know about church ranks.

Tha Aussies call their parents "olds" which is amusing.


My younger daughter calls us "groans"

Not every thing can be in tablet form.


Exactly: if it gets destroyed by the stomach acid or doesn't get absorbed
through the stomach or small intestine, then there's no point in giving it
orally (by mouth). I have no problem with injections and can barely feel the
"sharp scratch".


Oh it's not painful. It's the thought of it being in there.

Giving blood (as a donor or for a blood test) is more of a
problem because my veins seem to be either very deep or very fine: sometimes
the nurse has to try a couple of times in different arms to manage to get
the tip of the needle *inside* the vein rather than into the wall - and
that's a comment on my veins, not their skill. The exception was a qualified
blood donor doctor who attempted to insert the canula for me to give my pint
(very nearly an armful) and caused me a lot of pain with her fumbling;
eventually a nurse tactfully suggested the doctor needed to attend to
another patient, and the nurse got the needle into a vein quickly and
painlessly. Put me off doctors who looked like Rosa Klebb, but not off being
a blood donor ;-)


I've just been told that for kidney dialysis, they have to check your veins are compatible!

For last year's flu jab and first covid jab, I didn't feel a thing at the
time, just about felt the second covid jab maybe I flinched, or it didn't
go in completely straight, either way no actual pain.

Maybe Peter would like it in suppository form?


Now that *would* be painful to inject by needle ;-)

I meant to add to my earlier comment that while I hardly felt the injection,
the site of the injection felt bruised and tender for a couple of day
afterwards. Conventional flu jabs sometimes affect me like that as well.

But a very small price to pay for knowing that I'm better (not necessarily
completely) protected.


From something most of us will never get or never get symptoms of.

When I was in the service, a lot of shots were given with a Jet Injector.


Is that one of those things with 50 tiny needles, like an epipen? You would think every injection would be using those. The person giving it requires no special skill to find the blood vessel.

https://jetinfectors.files.wordpress...c-training.png

As long as the medic knew what he was doing and you didn't flinch as the shot
was given, they were, usually, pain free. However, if the point of contact wasn't flush
with the surface of the skin in all directions, any given shot could hurt like hell.

I say "usually pain free" because there was a certain shot that didn't fit that category.
I don't recall what the shot was for, but it was nicked named the "water fountain shot".

We'd stand in line, waiting to enter the room where the shot was given. About 10'
outside the door of the room there was a water fountain built into the wall. Service
members would enter the room, get the shot, feel no pain and walk out just like they
walked in - until right about when they passed the water fountain on the way out. That's
when you'd see people suddenly suddenly clutching their arm and hear something like
"Holy sh*t!" or "Damn! That f'ing hurts!"

Even the toughest guys that would never admit to being in pain would sort of visibly
tighten up or change their gait just enough that you could tell that the pain had started.

The pain usually lasted about 24 hours, during which time, of course, the drill instructors
would make sure that all activities included copious use of the painful arm.

Yes, there is a great deal of difference between the normal intra-muscular
injection (upper arm, buttocks etc) and an intra-venous injection (*) or
withdrawal of a blood sample. I've never tried either, but I imagine the
second take a *lot* more skill and practice.


(*) I don't think I've ever had one, but I imagine they are used to get a
drug into the bloodstream as fast as possible.

Default The Two Brain Dead Inseparable Trolling Resident Sociopaths together again

Speed, the auto-contradicting senile sociopath, blabbered, again:

FLUSH the two subnormal sociopathic cretins' endless absolutely idiotic

Another typical retarded "conversation" between the two resident idiots:

Birdbrain: "But imagine how cool it was to own slaves."

Senile Rodent: "Yeah, right. Feed them, clothe them, and fix them when
they're broken.
After all, you paid good money for them. Then you've got to keep an eye
on them all the time."

Birdbrain: "Better than having to give them wages on top of that."

Senile Rodent: "Specially when they make more slaves for you
and produce their own food and clothes."

I have a blood sample most years as part of the regular checkup.

but I imagine the second take a *lot* more skill and practice.


Yeah, particularly with those with difficult veins. Mine are very
difficult inside my elbows, non straight and hard to get a needle
into according to one of those who appears to know what she
is doing. Some do get it first time every time but few manage
that and we don't see the same one that often so it isnt clear
how often the first time success is just luck. One did claim
that its skill and I usually say I am hard to get a blood sample
from every time they need to get one.

(*) I don't think I've ever had one, but I imagine they are used

Yeah, I have a couple of times have had them put a canella
in the back of my hand in case they needed to use it for that,
but no one has ever actually needed to use it.

One time he actually managed to do it without me actually
noticing while asking me some questions. I was amazed and
said that he was brilliant. He just grinned and appeared to
realise that he did that deliberately.

Apparently not.

I did wonder when writing that, rebreeding some mention
that the covid vaccinations are intramuscular but didnt actually
check. It appears that the distinction is between intramuscular
and subcutaneous etc.
