A Christchurch doctor had to treat a woman after she was partially paralysed by a lovebite from her amorous partner. Dr Teddy Wu, who is currently working in the neurology department at Christchurch Hospital, said he believed it was the first time someone had been hospitalised by a "hickey". An article on the case has appeared in the New Zealand Medical Journal. Wu said he saw the woman over a year ago while he was working in Middlemore Hospital in Auckland. The 44-year-old Maori woman went to the emergency department after experiencing loss of movement in her left arm. It happened while she was sitting watching television. The only injury was a lovebite on the right of her neck near an artery. "Because It was a lovebite there would be a lot of suction. "Because Of the physical trauma it had made a bit of bruising inside the vessel," said Wu. "There Was a clot in the artery underneath where the hickey was." The clot had gone into the woman's heart and caused a minor stroke that led to the loss of movement, he said. She was treated with warfarin, an anticoagulant. That treatment saw the clot disappear almost entirely within a week, he said. "We Looked around the medical literature and that example of having a lovebite causing something like that hasn't been described before," he said. If it had not been treated quickly the woman could have suffered more strokes. "Strokes Have different levels of severity. But possibly patients can become paralysed."

I've lived around the DC area for most of my life, and the southern accent has been gone for years. Maybe 100 years ago it may been prevailent. You have to go into rural Viginia, West Virginia, or Pennsylvania to get any real accents. The fact is that most of the areas population has been transplanted from all over the country, if not the world.
Wow, this would be great for North America, or even the just the US. But Americans avoid at all costs the FCC stepping in and regulating anything we currently have a choice with. I doubt very seriously that Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and such are ever going to meet and compromise on a "standard".
This is an epiphany. If you actually believe in this stuff or maybe just read it for fun, let's hope it doesn't turn your world upside down. Oh and let's not forget the 12 colonies on Battlestar Galactica.

How many times have you been out shopping, or at the gas station, and saw something that was really stupid? Or driving and saw another driver doing something stupid? Well I frequently rant about such things, but always forget when I get into my blog. So here's a few things that I find stupid, irritate me, or I simply don't understand why it is.
At the gas station, why do people get back in the vehicle while fueling? There's a big sign at every gas station that says DO NOT REENTER THE VEHICLE DURING REFUELING. The same for using a cell phone, even with blue-tooth while anywhere near a gas station. Haven't you seen those clips on TV of static explosions at the gas pump? Stupid, absolutely STUPID.
Something else that escapes my reasoning is why drivers have to be so aggressive. I take a back way to work in the mornings, usually it's still dark. Almost every morning, someone passes me like they are on their way to an emergency. Then there's those drivers who cannot wait their turn or wait in line for a light. They will cut across a parking lot, or gas station lot to the other side to skip ahead. I see it every morning in Clinton, MD at every light and intersection I go through.
