    how long did it take you to get hired?

    Rural communities are usually hiring, I had to move to central washington for my job. AMR is a tough gig as a new emt but if you go to AMR seattle they gobble up basics all the time. Wenatchee has lifeline ambulance if i'm not mistaken and Ballard Ambulance, I have only ever come across them...

    the 100% directionless thread

    Sigh not another one... Everything you ever love has or will be hacked up into pieces for profit or more entertainment. Now if it were truly a master piece than I could see your point but its not. So world doesn't explode... Oldboy remake by spike lee. Awesome ruin greatest South Korean film...

    When will we stop running code?

    We do the same. What's to be annoyed about? As a kid you enjoyed it and as a newbie you did as well. Burnouts or just getting too old for it seems to be a common trend. That said I don't disagree with anyone's points.

    I took the EMT basic class in Spokane through a private business that offers certifications in medical field. If you want that one I can find the website, it was a quick course and my instructor was great. I also know Moses lake fire does an EMT course but not sure about the details of when it...

    What's your personality?

    Masterminds get bored with the casual conversation we get roped into with friends/coworkers/family. It is no wonder that most INTJ's retreat to the internet to find stimulating conversation they would never get with others in person.

    Occam's Razor versus Hikam's Dictum. (Hikam's What?)

    Maybe it wasn't obvious to you. Like mycrofft disagreed but was mature about it. Mmm no but I can see where you saw that. I saw Hikams Dictum view point but think Occams Razor is more correct. Beyond being obtuse I didn't attack the person but the arguments that were not so subtle with...

    Occam's Razor versus Hikam's Dictum. (Hikam's What?)

    I do but you only want to see it your way. You misunderstood the chronic pain example. Then that is the system working against doctors who should enact change. Sigh... You again understand but being obtuse, majority not minority. Again... What I meant is if we treat everyone like...

    Occam's Razor versus Hikam's Dictum. (Hikam's What?)

    The problem with that is doctors are already trained and equip to diagnose patients based on various symptoms they present. you would be opening a can of worms to say :censored::censored::censored::censored: it he might have liver failure because of a chronic pain, the simplest answer is usually...

    Occam's Razor versus Hikam's Dictum. (Hikam's What?)

    Hikam's Dictum could lead to over-diagnosing which in many cases it already has. Doctors not using Occam's Razor instead thinking outside the box which is good if it were a complicated aliment but it most likely isn't. An example would be the over-diagnosing of ADD/ADHD. If pt's can have as...

    The Walking Dead

    It's really easy when they back you in a corner, overwhelm you, you do something stupid (which is what most do), you eventually get killed for any number of reasons but they are almost always plausible.

    The Walking Dead

    I like it but season 2 was awful, too much drama/zombie violence that gets in the way of progressing the story even further. I'm hopeful for season 3 and so far its not doing anything bad but soon it will hit the same rut like season 2 and I'll probably give up.

My coworkers see the humor in everything so they cope with jokes and this helped me a lot...
