    I just learnt that getting carried away reading hilarious forum malarkey on AV can make you forget you left the tap on while filling the kitchen sink...

    The only time I was hospitalised with concussion involved a shopping trolley.

    NNA AU and general vape advocacy in Australia summed up-
    There is nothing to see here- it has nothing to do with you or vapers - Its not your business...
    Secrecy for the greater good... Enemies are everywhere

    Then drink to forget ..."

    I droped over to to that link fro a quick read RATM, and couldn't help but notice the "Markham Valley Cannibal Spoons". Never realised there was a movie made about the Cargo Cult either. Interesting stuff - thanks for sharing!

    Cannibal spoons are over here:

    I got bit accidentally on my finger its infected almost to the bone, since i just slapped a badaid on it.
    Horse sized pill antibotics for my reward.
    A guy I talk to was nipped by his dog, it became infected and he nearly died.
    He ended up losing his feet above the ankles and his fingers.
    Always have bites checked ASAP.

    I learned tonight that thought and reality can be very different.
    People might have noticed I am not my ebullient self lately... Have been doing it a bit tuff in the not sleeping, hurting a bit cycle, and there has been a bit of stress in other areas... Soooooo tonight just then after having a shower before bed, I am drying off and have lifted my left leg up to rub a bit, and suddenly I can hear this banging and skittering in the wall and roof... Great thinks he ...friggin rodent rodent mates again...time for baiting!.. I stop to listen...nothing...rub again..skitter skitter clunk clunk...stop ...nothing... Start rubbing again ...skitter clunk...its about this time I look round to my left and realize my thigh has been in good contact with the hamper and is bashing it into the wall...
    #paralysisCanBeAmusing!

    (Due to nerve damage I have no surface sensation on my left thigh from hip to just above the knee and most of my quads are missing or paralyzed about 15 % remains which let's me walk)

    Could have been worse like unsettling your wife's favourite perfume from the bathroom counter snd stepping on the shards of the broken bottle.

    i still love you FM

    i know about them Rat plagues, used to get them in Cobar, till one year a female fox built a warren under the house.
    used to throw abit of raw meat in the yard and she would keep the mice in check.
