well that's true too but what drives wifey crazy is the level of cronyism, nespotism, good ole boy network and politics that goes on in an industry that you would think would be mostly meritocracy and only a little bit of the other stuff. The stories she tells me of senior scientist's pettiness and back stabbing is astounding. Like Wally said, i've said too much.

I can't imagine getting medication that's supposed to help you. To instead be unintentionally infected w/ something as horrible as meningitis. That's unacceptable, and should never happen, but it does. Those poor people.

Sure there's ups and downs. Side effects and many, mnay trials.

The thing that always disturbs me the most though is the facination the FDA has with blind tests utilizing placebos in clinicals for prople known to be terminally ill. Its a death sentence for some part of the population. When its kids involved, it breaks my heart.

I fully understand the need to keep snake oil off the pharmacy shelves....but for crying out loud dont do that to the terminally ill. Give them a shot at least..
Anyway, said more than I should. It's close to my heart for those that have viewed my video will know.

(gets off his soapbox)
You're a good man, Wally Gee!

Reminds me of this story

I think sometimes I confuse tired with something else.
I should be able to say...gee it was a busy week, yay its Friday cuz I'm tired.

I'm a good self observer. and I see myself doing this.
Now I can be better at it

Ask the wait person to find the game for you. I assume they watch hockey in WI...
