Docs warn idiots not to drink hand sanitizers.

“Before those results were obtained, the patient was seen in the bathroom drinking the alcohol-based hand wash from its dispenser,” Dr. Ashkan Emadi and Dr. LeAnn Coberly of the University of Cincinnati wrote.

“When asked why he ingested the hand cleaner, he pointed to the label, which read, ‘Active ingredient 63 percent v/v isopropyl alcohol.’ He explained that this percentage is higher than that in vodka,” they added.

It takes only a small amount of isopropanol to kill, by depressing the heart and central nervous system, they wrote.

Me: Good luck at the dentist tomorrow.
Fisch: Good luck? Like when he pulls the tooth, he might find gold under there?

A few weeks ago, after he defriended someone on AIM, F-train and I were talking about the end of relationships.
I think he took the position that he would rather there be a gradual parting of the ways, like you just don’t call like you used to or visit the other and then one day, five years later, you’re all “hmm…when was the last time I saw Tammy? Weird.”
But I disagreed.
My thinking goes something like this…in that scenario there’s always the possibility that it’s not really over. That someone just got lazy and stopped making an effort. It’s all too uncertain. Suddenly, I’m googling them just to find out where they ended up and then I’m sending “hey…how’re you doing?” emails and before you know it, Karol is all “you’re having dinner with Elliot, again? Are you out of your ever loving mind” ing me for two hours.

When relationships end with a big, knock down drag out fight where glass breaks and spit flies — there’s no question about reconciliation or “catching up” in twenty years. Oh no. That loser is dead to you and you have a bag full of heads that you’ve cut out of pictures.
But, that’s just me. A child of divorce. And a spawn of a long line of bitter women.

I love it when they fight

A Senate Republican on Tuesday directly challenged President Bush’s declaration that “I am the decision-maker” on issues of war.

“I would suggest respectfully to the president that he is not the sole decider,” Sen. Arlen Specter, R-Pa., said during a hearing on Congress’ war powers amid an increasingly harsh debate over Iraq war policy. “The decider is a shared and joint responsibility,” Specter said.

Makes me smile….oohh…hold up….is Arlen running for President???! Oh please, please, please!

She remains wedded to the belief that every picture she takes of me is the best one ever taken.

Is anyone else dreading the return of Lost as much as I am? Like, aw crap I’m going to have to starting wasting a week of my life on that junk again?’
And before you ask why I just don’t stop watching it: I have undiagnosed OCD.
