    [–] Experts Agree: Robert Mueller Just Played Donald Trump Like a Fiddle GibsonWich 3 points ago in politics

    Let’s be honest. No one has seen world 2 or 3 because of the warp secret in Level 1-2.

    [–] What used to be extra common in movies that you just don't see in movies anymore? GibsonWich 32 points ago in AskReddit

    Yeah now it’s always “Meathook Sodomy” or “I Cum Blood.” We get it Cannibal Corpse, you have sex.

    [–] Sister’s dog just sat like this for 20 minutes. His back legs are fully functional, though the photo suggests otherwise. GibsonWich 3 points ago in WhatsWrongWithYourDog

    Yeah this boy is at risk for hip dysplasia as a pit bull but doesn’t show any signs of it other than this. The range of motion on his hips is ridiculous.

    [–] [Serious] Cancer survivors of Reddit, when did you first notice something was wrong? GibsonWich 50 points ago in AskReddit

    I had this reaction when I learned about fecal transplants for C. Diff infections.

    Nurse: “Doctor, he’s shitting uncontrollably and it’s killing his bowels.”

    Doctor, taking long drag on pipe: “Put someone else’s shit in his butt.”

    Nurse: “You cannot be-“

    Doctor: “I SAID SHIT IN HIS BUTT”

    [–] What is the strangest human interaction you've ever had? GibsonWich 1 points ago in AskReddit

    While working in the emergency department one night a guy came in whose chief complaint was a cough... yesterday. Said it was gone now. No other concerns. I explained to him that while I understand his concern, the ED is not really the place to be evaluated for a health issue like that, especially since it had resolved. He expressed understanding but did not get up. I left the room while the nurse gave him discharge information.

    An hours later the environmental services worker is trying to get in to clean the room. Mentions to me that the door is locked... but these doors don’t lock. I try it and the knob is functioning but the door won’t budge. I realize that I never saw the patient leave.

    Eventually get security who start slamming into the door with significant force. Finally starts to budge and we see that every bit of furniture was stacked against the door. Look in and the patient is trying to sleep wrapped in sheets from the bed. He sits up, apologizes, and helps us move stuff out of the way. Then just leaves the ED. So bizarre.

    [–] This keyboard... GibsonWich 8 points ago in CrappyDesign

    Nope... nursing and anesthesia keyboards. Super safe.

    [–] This keyboard... GibsonWich 98 points ago in CrappyDesign

    I work in healthcare and we have these keyboards on EVERY computer in the operating rooms! It’s infuriating to use.

    What isn’t pictured is on the number keypad there is a ‘00’ key where the normal zero should be, while the zero key is shifted one spot to the right. You’ll be typing a dose of medication in and it will be documented as 1000mg rather than 100mg. Drives me insane.

    [–] What is the grossest thing you've seen in public? GibsonWich 1 points ago in AskReddit

    There’s also the fact that any artificial route, especially one artificially accessed with a prosthesis, is very very not sterile. These patients can get colonized UTI’s with some of the worst bugs imaginable.

    [–] The price of 12 pieces of chalk at Target vs my college bookstore GibsonWich 10 points ago in mildlyinfuriating

    Hey since EIGHT different people needed to answer the question, went ahead and compiled their responses for you in one easy to read comment:

    I guess you can mark the fabric where it needs to be cut or whatever and it rubs off afterwards unlike a marker or pen or something.

    They use it to mark temporary lines on fabric

    It's how you mark measurements on fabric in an erasable, non-damaging way.

    They draw on the fabric/garment in chalk because it washes off.

    Not the person you asked the question to, but I’ve seen tailors use chalk to mark lines on the fabric for their measurements and such. I’ve also seen white chalk used on wedding dresses as an emergency when they get dirty.

    When marking fabric where you want to make a cut, you wanna use something that won't stain and can easily be washed off.

    I assume for marking the cuts on cloth since it wahdes off easily

    Dude how do you not know?

    [–] What are some cliche things that people do in real life only because they've seen it done before in movies? GibsonWich 384 points ago in AskReddit

    My sister got in a fight with her husband while drunk at a bar one time and tried to storm out. Ended up going up a flight of stairs, but there was no second floor and she ended up in the DJ booth. She made awkward eye contact, went back down and had to walk past her husband and his friends again on her way out.

    [–] Medical offices have a lot of nerve asking you to show up 15 minutes early but then not getting to you until 45 minutes after your scheduled time. GibsonWich 6 points ago in Showerthoughts

    I work in the OR, and I cannot believe how often patients will no-show surgery! It’s less common than in the clinic setting, but a lot more expensive each time. I have literally had women no-show a scheduled C-section.
