Out of the Blue

My services are required today to escort MrsBlue for an oil change for her car. No, this is not actually something that requires my presence, but it will prevent her from feeling nervous that she'll get railroaded into some needless expense. But that's fine, because there's this little deli near the shop that serves the most incredible egg sandwiches. It's not close enough to just pop in on a whim, but they are so good that they make spending a little time waiting for your car seem like the best thing that will happen to you all day. I think I'm going to take a picture of the description on the menu-board to try and recreate these on my own. Doritos (yes, Doritos!) and all.

Isn't that true even for a transplanting a human kidney? I was under the impression all transplant recipients needed to take auto-immune suppression medications. Is that not the case?

That is the case. It is also the case for people who have auto-immune diseases which virulently attack the host.

Also, no one getting a transplant is "unaware of the consequences". A person getting a transplant is made well aware of the inherent risks and the medications they will be taking to reduce the risk of rejection. They will also be told the risks those medications will pose to them during flu/cold seasons, infections, etc.

Speaking as someone with a good friend that had a kidney transplant, yes, that's true. It would seem as if Ozmodam likes to spew misinformation about topics he knows little about.

Early start today, Blue. Got something planned for the day and needed to get this out of the way?

As to climate change, I find it amazing how many idiots think it is ok to destroy our economies when doing so will hardly make a dent in climate change. I am all for doing whatever we can do to limit the effects, but not destroying people struggling to make ends meet.. These activists conveniently tend to ignore that many of their policies drastically increase energy prices which affects the poor far more than any other class.
