    Game of War is also another addictive game but it's a money grabbing piece of crap, good game, just to get anywhere you have to sink money into it and after level 7 the game takes so long to do one building or one task that it nearly forces you to pay cash to buy speedups.  There is a reason why the developers of that game paid Kate Upton 40+ million dollars to be their face of the game.  She's super hot but not worth even 1 million.

    I play WOW, I also play others as well, but there is so much to do in WOW for a new player that I concentrate on one game at a time.  And for now,wow is it.

    it's because EMS has historically given their services away for free so why not this time as well.  Fire as well.  What will happen is EMS will look like the bad guys if they dont' work for free because it will be spun that they didn't "help the brother love city out"
     
    I say screw em, if they can find the budget to pay everyone else out, then they can find the budget to pay ems.  
    Plus, isn't the catholic church full of money, can't they foot the bill or at least help pay for some of it?

  4. Ruffmeister Paramedic added a post in a topic What is the dumbest question anyone has asked you?   

    for the question regarding worst call - I usually tell them - think of their child in the worst thing that could ever happen to them and then triple it.  I usually tell them to leave it there and not ask me to elaborate.

    Yeah, clearly the ambulance is at fault.  They just go right on through that red light.  Me wonders whether they were trying to beat the fire truck.  
    My initial thoughts when I saw this video a couple of days ago was "What is that driver thinking?????, slow the hell down and stop at that red light"  I would bet that the driver has had at least one other close call in the past month, anyone want to take me up on this bet?????

    have you contacted the state of New York?  These questions are best answered by the experts at the State/local level, not us on this forum.

    Ok, this was not the news I was wanting to hear this morning as I counted Ed as a close personal friend.  We had corresponded several times and he had helped me several times as well.  
    my heart is heavy and in a sad place.  
    Ed, you will be missed terribly by all who knew you, your last watch is done, your team has it from here.  RIP my friend.

  9. Ruffmeister Paramedic added a post in a topic Are These EMS Type Of Websites Dying ?   

    Hey trackmedic, wasn't specifically calling you out, but some people come here and say "this site sucks or to that effect" and they don't offer suggestions but just bitch.  and then go away.  I would love to see when they bitch and moan, provide suggestions as to why this site sucks.  
     
    if you are going to complain as to why the site sucks, tell admin or tell us in a post why it sucks!!! that way someone can do something about it.  Don't just say it sucks and then go away.  
     
    Stick around and make it unsucky.

    A CEU Class is a education course that has education hours attached to it.  No offense to you but if you don't know what they are then it probably won't work but maybe if you were to provide the actual course in burns, (basic or advanced level or a mix that would benefit both level of provider) then someone here in the states could sponsor the class and provide the hours via their training site.  
     
    Anyone want to step up if Downunder were to write the education piece?  Sort of a collaborative effort?

    Unfortunately, many new members would get upset or their feelings hurt and they would never return.  I think over the past year, when our posting count was in the toilet, we ran off more people than we attracted.  
    I'd like to see that reverse itself.  
    Now with another similar site that I belong to geting ready to shutter it's doors, this site will need to attract more members again.  Let's not let it get like it was last year.

    Where don't we agree?  Take the sarcasm out and maybe we do agree, or maybe we don't.  I'm good with either.
