THE PIT IS NOT A DOCTOR!

...but some of us have some medical experience. This thread will be a place for the community to ask general questions about themselves or just to solve their curiosity. Many of us can web.md ourselves into whatever disease we can think of, but some professional panache might help some Pit members from convincing themselves that they're actually dying.

I'll keep a running list of who to listen to.

I've had some medical training and once saved a guys life by stitching up a mass ass gash on his leg after he was in a car crash and roads were super fucking icy and it took over an hour for an ambulance to get to us.

I'd like to add myself to the list of professional sexologist. You know, cause I get so much sex lmaooo.

My mom is a nurse, so I can always just ask her whatever.
As for myself, I took a few medical classes, but don't remember enough to call myself an expert in anything.

It's always been something I've been proud of. They told me the dude would have bleed to death if I wasn't there. It was also kinda cool to actually get to use my medical training. It was the first and only time I ever got to use it in a real life situation.

half serious question:

how did my cousin develop a very strong Philly accent when he grew up in suburban PA and no one else in his family remotely sounds like that?

half serious answer

as a life long PA resident the people in PA a just fucking weird and no amount of medial knowledge could explain half the fuck up shit that happens around here.

Like I'm from Pittsburgh you go 5 miles out side of Pittsburgh and everyone seems to sound like they are speaking a different langue. I've recently moved near Harrisburg and every one know I'm from Pittsburgh by the way I talk yet they all sound like they came straight out of downtown Philly.

Yeah and wait 10 years in an A&E department to get seen, by which time the illness has already killed you.

1) knows a lot of people (not necessarily family) who speak like that and thus acquired it

2) likes the sound of the accent or qualities associated with it and consciously imitated people he knows who speak like that and now it's always like that (also can be combined with 1)

3) has foreign accent syndrome (which is a v rare and controversial diagnosis)

wait you're near Levittown right or was that someone else?

at any rate it's just been hilarious to me because he's had it almost since he was old enough to talk, but his older brother has never been remotely close and they're only a year or two apart and hang out with the same people.

i make him recite Dead Milkmen lines from time to time.

this sounds exactly like my cousins.

except the one is more about that trash 2 Chainz song.

the younger one spent a decent amount of time referring to Levittown as "the 215 spot"

mostly his hood attitude is low key and entertaining considering how white he is and the fact he's an all around spaz with mild tourettes.

i had to get on a plane with him on NYE and he was loudly calling me a pussy as we boarded, drawing all kinds of dirty looks from families.

except this one old lady that thought it was hilarious.

In the news earlier today, the NHS is in its worst crisis it's faced in years partly due to something like £4.5 billion being cut from social care. Which means that the elderly that relied on that care have resorted to visiting hospitals due to the inability of our social care system to look after them.

I'm a mid-to-strong dilettente in specialized knowledge if you wanted to add me to the OP as a 'Health and Wellcare consultant'.

But if you wanted to clean your psyche and learn things on how to improve yourself without spending money on a that's-my-field specialist, hit me up.

I also have a decent amount of experience in nootropics and reading phD's posts/nchib.gov/etc (tl;dr: active chemicals that benefit your health, rather than etc). If you ever need to squeezee-clean your brain -- for working memory/longevity/stress/bad-times/etc -- let me know. It's no problem at all to private message me; (I find it fun and fullfilling to do tbvmh, and always confidante).

That's a pretty interesting way to describe it. I've always thought it was better than sex but sex with god would probably be some pretty fucking good sex.
