Out of the Blue

We had some sausage in the fridge that was intended for the grill, but hadn't been made yet, so I was inspired this morning to try making an omelet in the oven, something I've wanted to attempt since having one in a diner a few months ago. It turned out great, and though it took far longer than cooking it on the stovetop, it was a simpler process. I just browned the sausage and put it in a cast iron skillet on some eggs mixed with a little water (I make a mean omelet, and the pro tip is water instead of milk) and some cheddar cheese. I started it briefly on the stove, and then popped it in the oven at 350 for 20 minutes, and it was perfect with no delicate turning required. The one thing I failed to do was remember to avoid touching the skillet handle with a bare hand after it was out of the oven (ouch!), but luckily the contact was brief enough to avoid a real burn.

That list sucks.

it might be clearer to say "strength".. or simply "not enough electricity" rather than "not the right kind of electricity"

but it probably doesnt matter since everyone dozed off by now

True - but to say it for most to understand - is "tone".

People understand tone - they don't understand the technical description.

What does that mean? honest question

Means the electrical pulses given off by the body were not in the correct "tone" to be zapped. The AED only is able to do a certain type - which is why when it is used, it is so successful.

I recall writing the program to generate the Mandelbrot set on an Apple II at work and letting it run overnight. The thing hadn't finished the entire screen, but there was enough there to know I'd done it right. Needless to say, things have gotten faster since that 1MHz processor.

I don't think Minecraft is evil, but I am amazed at how it's somehow more fun to wander around in Minecraft than it is to wander around in Second Life.. The universe can seem mysterious

But yeah, Minecraft is a lot of fun

main thing to note from the study is how low the chances are with CPR.

Training makes a huge difference yet still it's low. Of course, some have no chance unless they happen to be in an ER at the time, but paddles are where it's at. Dramatically higher chance of survival AND faster so less likely to have brain damage from lack of O2.

...says me who's never got around to the first aid course I've been intending to do for years

Yea, avg % for saves for responders is somewhere around 5% if they are full arrest while we are enroute. Sucks.

In regards to:
Study backs chest compressions in resuscitation.
We have known this for a few years now. The most important thing is to keep the oxygen going through the body, as there is enough o2 in the blood to recycle many many times, the air isn't as important until the medics get there (within 5-10 minutes).

We have the Lucas Device in our area, does compressions 99% more effective than a human can. It has saved lives in our area. Also we have AEDs in every squad and all public city owned buildings. Those things are great, but you MUST be in the correct defibrilation for them to work. The 2 people I have hooked up to them didn't have the correct electricity in their body to save them....

Worst part about all this is despite, most if not all could have been avoided. Afaik the evidence is absolute, I can't think of a single doctor or scientist who thinks it's ok to continue unhealthy eating habits after or hell before a heart attack.

Eating more fruits and vegetables (the fresher and the rawer the better). Also mandatory is stop eating and drinking products from animals who are not GRASS fed, pumped full of antibiotics and steroids, in the case of land based animals.

Even if a persona has a heart attack from some genetic condition their chances are multitudes better at prevention and survival with a nutritionally filled diet.

On the other hand if you want a meal to be waiting and ready to eat left out on your table six months from now, without having to cook mcDeath has a meal for you.

Maybe it's just addiction and people can't help themselves?

The people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders.That is easy.All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger.It works the same way in any country.

Yeah, milk for scrambled, water for omelettes. Just a tiny bit though, as I said, about half an eggshell for every two eggs. And always start your pan off with butter to brown up a bit, then add your oil. Eggs without butter just aren't worth having.
