  1. It is a bit disturbing, more so because the doc approved a procedure he wasn't sure of than that the medic was using slang (perhaps that's normal to use slang in their area). Kindof shows a lack of a "give-a-crap" attitude on the docs part.
  2. We have a subscription service. I don't see more frequent flyers due to it. What I do find is people are concerned that if they can't pay for their subscription, they won't get an ambulance when they need it.
  3. Ah Michael, you are an interesting individual to be sure. Again, you miss the point entirely. AK has outright said that certain firearms should be banned because he simply does not like them. This is not him saying "I don't like firearm X". It's him advocating action. Whether he has the ability to carry out any massive, legislation changing action or not is far from the issue here. He has stated, in no uncertain terms, that if given the opportunity he would force his will upon the masses because he "feels" that's the way it should be, facts be damned. That an obviously educated and in
  4. Are you kidding me? Did you read my post? I'm talking about AK supporting the banning of certain types of weapons because he "feels" they are bad. Whether I read his posts or not, it does not change the fact that he would most likely support legislation to ban "assault weapons". I would never support legislation to force people to own firearms, why should I not be disturbed when someone claims to support stopping me from owning them? I realize that things are not as black/white as I once thought. Nice try. AK has stated unequivocally that certain types of firearms should be ba
  5. Dude, did you miss this statement? Sounds to me like he's going to vote to ban firearms that he finds offensive, if afforded the opportunity. Perhaps I'm being a bit assumptive, but I doubt it.
  6. Ahhh...a few minutes of quiet to post here in the city. I'm going to make an attempt to address the posts made by both Michael and AK. Let's see how I do. Hey now! No need to get snippy. I have, in fact, read the entire thread and had done so before penning my entry. I'm an engineer in real life, so reading for comprehension is a prerequisite. Here's where my issue comes in with what you've written AK: You are entitled to your opinions/views, but once you start demanding legislation based on personal bias, that's where I have a problem. Now it's no longer just your opi
  7. Wow, didn't realize I'd draw the response I did with my post! All of you deserve responses, but it is late and I'm a bit tired so I promise to sit down and pen something worthwhile tomorrow..ok? I need time to digest everything...
  8. Why not? People use their kids in car seats to try to steal stuff all the time ("hide it under the baby! No one will look there"). Never underestimate the depravity of the human race.
  9. A silly grin (or four/five in a row) does not a defensible position make. The older I get the more I put aside my preconceived notions, emotional responses, etc, and I look for facts and concrete arguments to back my stance. Saying you back a certain position because it's just how you "feel" is way too simplistic for educated discussions. Face to face I could overlook such things due to the personal nature of such encounters, but that is not the case with the written word. Writing affords us endless opportunity to research and defend our spot. To refuse to accept any input that does not agree
  10. Another fine example of our litigious society. Why put in an honest days work for your money when you can sue your way to riches? Nothing stokes my coals more than someone who talks about how they would sue the bejeesus out of anyone for anything so they could retire fat, dumb and happy. How about you earn yer damn keep, jackass?
  11. Ballistically they are two different rounds with the 30-06 being the more powerful of the two. I'd rather be shot by the AK. Lessee 220grain bullet at 2800fps or 125grain bullet at 2300fps? Kinetic Energy = 1/2(Mass*velocity^2). You do the math. Anyone who claims so called "assault rifles" are more dangerous than other types of firearms isn't interested in being bothered with silly "facts".
  12. As a gun owner, firearms instructor and homeowner, I have to say there is no excuse for firing through the front door. Going to the gun should be the LAST resort after all other security measures have failed. This person was inside their home and armed and yet felt it was necessary to fire at someone outside the home and unarmed? I'll be interested to hear the exact circumstances, but even if they were in fear for their life from a previous bad encounter, there is no justification for what they have done.
  13. If he exposed her when it wasn't necessary, then he wasn't sued for doing CPR; he was sued for inappropriate sexual behavior. A quick Google search reveals no news articles.
  14. 1X10-13 Torr? No problem on our FD run bambilance...
  15. I'd like to know the vacuum levels and exactly how much gamma radiation is being emitted. If we're talking pulling a vacuum of 1X10-5 or greater, you better figure out where to put a roughing pump, foreline pump and a diffusion pump or ion pump (I wouldn't want to try to run a turbo pump, mag-lev or not, in a moving ambulance - good way to destroy $10k).
