    [–] Surgeon Hospitalized for 6 Weeks After Working 180-Hour Shifts, Gets Called an ‘Emotional Female’ orthopod 1 points ago in medicine

    Home call can be pretty cushy. Just call back and answer the page, and renew the Ancef order, or order the enema, and go back to eating your dinner.

    [–] Surgeon Hospitalized for 6 Weeks After Working 180-Hour Shifts, Gets Called an ‘Emotional Female’ orthopod 3 points ago in medicine

    Anyone can do the surgeries, but knowing who not too operate on is what's important.

    New surgeons always need a few years to really sort that out.

    Just remember- you can't shine shit..Some pts will die, whether you operate on them or not.

    [–] Surgeon Hospitalized for 6 Weeks After Working 180-Hour Shifts, Gets Called an ‘Emotional Female’ orthopod -7 points ago * (lasted edited 2 hours ago) in medicine

    Home call. They can be a piece of cake, or not. Solo practitioners are on call 24/7 always. Hers sounds like a lot of hours, but it depends.

    As to the article, she's working at the hospital 60-70 hours/week. That's a standard surgeons schedule. It's also standard to take call for a week straight. I'm on call now- day 6.

    Getting called an emotional female- yeah, that's unacceptable, and shitty.

    She gets 2 week ends off a month. That's certainly improved working conditions, from 15 years ago, where you only got 1 day off a month as an intern.

    The home call can be hit or miss. They're can be a lot, or not many. Sounds like most nights she had none after midnight.

    I'm not sure what she thinks life will be like as a surgeon after she graduates.

    If you down vote, don't be a chicken, but please explain why. Thanks

    They're definitely are a lot of 959 body kits out there. Porsche only made around 300 of the 959. Los of body kits around, based on 993 or older.models.

    Guy down the street had one, just parked on his driveway.

    [–] Dems prepare to force Trump to reveal private talks with Putin orthopod 2 points ago in politics

    I think some Republican handler realised that Rudy was a fantastic Democratic asset, and had to be squelched.

    Im still halfway convinced that Trump is working for the democrats, being the worst Republican that can be. It's certainly souring many people to them.

    The other half don't get the joke, like on the Colbert Report. Some idiots thought he was pro- conservative. I guess irony can be a foreign concept.

    The current mountain of evidence, number of convictions, indictments, and behavior of him and his staff would say you are wrong.

    Trump is very likely compromised.

    How would changing languages have any effect on this.

    Voice sounds fairly normal speaking English. Maybe a little bit higher than average pitch.

    I would say without a doubt, they have interviewed ALL of the ex staff/cabinet members of Trump's team. Very likely to find someone who wasn't treated well, and would be more than happy to get some revenge.

    But he is on the short end of the stick, in terms of what knowledge Mueller has. It would be on his interest to not talk at all, however if he's involved in anything shady at all, it would benefit him to spill the beans to Mueller. Just how much to spill is the issue.

    He apparently watches, so more like group sex. He also is rumored to like black men on his wife.

    These rumors are from a partially verified sms tap of his daughters phone records.

    He's good friends, and long time working partner with Roger Stone, who publicly acknowledged that he, Stone, took out swingers adds, looking for muscular men to have sex with his wife

    I think there are many more unfilled charges, that can be dropped once the orange guy is out of the White House - that way he won't be pardoned.

    Does he get secret service protection in jail? Even if he's a traitor( which I think is likely), he might still be afforded that protection, which would be comical.

    I'd like to see him in jail, serving up prison food to the black and Hispanic inmates, while secret service guards are next to him. I wonder if the Aryan Brotherhood will make him get tattooed?

    You are not burning 10,000-14,000 calories in your sleep. Most is likely through dehydration from breathing- your breath is moist.

    On the part that slides out, the screw hole pattern looks like there would be 2 identical things, screwed in, side by side.

    You just need a small rod to dry pasta. having a giant board current make sense, and wouldn't allow for air circulation.

    I've revised a bunch, and most had awful looking metalosis/corrosion on the junction. They started making CobaltChrome necks after 2009 after the titanium ones failed. The CoCr one did equally shitty.

    [–] A pearl on the street. What a beauty. Porsche 356. orthopod 5 points ago in Porsche

    Tires look awfully wide for a real 356. 356 B and C's came with 155 or 165 width. Wheel offset also looks wrong = wheels way too flush with body, unless they put aftermarket wheels on it.
