    Where Didja Get Your Log In Name

    As your bumdoc I advise you to postpone that until toilet paper supply is ensured again. (See ‘Share your Expertise’ thread.)
  2. I am a gastroenterologist. PM me if you need a colo.

    Ok, I’ve just scanned it but I think it is not worth the effort. Problem with DIY masks (and surgical masks) is that they don’t fit tight enough so the air flows around them. And if they do, they will not let through enough air. I’d rather keep a little distance to other people than have that feeling of false security.

    I read it. But I read it as a doctor, not as a lawyer. “some” ”might” ”x to y percent” No objective test of lung function (these exist!) Short follow up time. (Everybody who survived pneumonia will need some time to get up to 100% eventually.) and, most important: ”12 cases” Sorry, but this is not evidence as scientists define it.

    Mambo, I generally agree but there are some points where I don’t: 1. A mask worn by a healthy person may lower his or her risk of infection in the single digit percentages, if at all. When inhaling, air just flows through the gaps between the mask and your face, so wtf? The only ones who should wear masks (or bandanas or scarfs in front of their faces) are those who are infected. When exhaling, even the most primitive piece of cloth in front of your schnozz will reduce the radius of the cloud of microscopic droplets that surrounds you by about 50 to 90 percent - and this will protect others. (These are long known standard clinical hygiene facts.) 2. Covid 19 causes, at worst, a viral (=interstitial) pneumonia. This either kills you or it heals out. It usually DOESNT leave those who recovered with severely damaged lungs. (This is derived from Chinese data. Yes, you cannot trust them, but in the light of what we know from other interstitial pneumonias, it seems probable...) Ok, stay safe and remember: Rum helps against EVERYTHING!

    Last month I flew to Frankfurt and came back with this. It felt faster AND louder than the plane. :-))

    100 kilogram of massive German hiking power = one 10th of a metric ton. Easy to calculate.

    "Culus Nauticus" (nautical a**hole)

    Yea, yea. French, Italian, that's what they told us. Guess what? I didn't have time to learn a second Romanic language beacuse a) English was more important anyway and b) the rest of my time was wasted with Latin. So if you want to learn Italian, then what's wrong with learning, well, Italian in the first place? You only have one live! I do speak a little bit Italian and it was fairly easy to learn but I still think my Italian would be better now without the detour via Fucking Lingua Latina. And speaking of medical terminology: Nobody at school taught me words like "gastros" for stomach or "nephros" for kidney... Beacuse they do not appear in the classic texts and - more important - because they're GREEK anyway! Like about 1/3 to 1/2 of all medical terminology. So when I entered medical school I was as clueless as anybody else. When I wrote my thesis on liver transplantation ("hepar" = liver = Greek btw), I cited exactly 203 resources. 201 were in English, two were in German. And zhat is only becazue I AM German ...

    Consider yourself lucky! I had Latin for 5 years and all I can remeber are the quotes from Asterix. Most useless language ever.
