  1. The six most dangerous words in the English language: "We've always done it that way."
  2. At least here in the States it would require a hefty paradigm shift in order for this to happen. Insurance would have to get on board. Doctor's offices and urgent care centers would have to get on board. There would have to be a change in the education of those staffing the ambulances to safely make the determination of where best to take the patient. Not saying it couldn't happen. Not saying it won't happen. It's just gonna take a while to get there.

  6. "Content unavailable outside of Canada." So I tried using a VPN. The website crashed my browser twice.
  7. Was there any logic offered for this? On its face it doesn't make much sense.

    Have you considered obtaining the education and experience first hand? An autobiographical tome may offer more than merely living vicariously through others.

    You do understand that you're not the first person to come here looking for material to write a book, right? You do understand the skepticism offered to anyone coming here looking to profit off of our stories and experiences, right?

    Welcome. What's in it for us? What's the incentive to let you profit from our stories?
  12. So I went into my profile and changed the default so I wouldn't receive reply notifications only to receive notifications anyway. At that point I went into the individual threads and noted that it was necessary to both unsubscribe and turn off notifications individually from each thread. Just as a heads up to others that if you don't want notifications you may have to turn it off in more than one area.

  14. Welcome. I've been to Kansas. Nice place. They have wind. Dust, too.
  15. Cue Julia Edward in 3...2... Punctuation, please. Your post is difficult to read. Do you still get a break down by section or is it simply "Pass/Fail" these days? It's been a while since I've taken it. How close are you to passing? Are you missing it by a wide margin? Or are you just barely missing it? I like the idea of practice questions. Practice questions that offer justifications for the correct answers (as opposed to just giving you the correct answer) are even better. Lots and lots of practice questions.
